Fantastic tour! Highly recommend. It’s great to be able to see both Little India and China town in one afternoon. I learnt so much and the food is incredible. 100% would recommend.

Wow! What a fantastic experience this was! One of the best that my wife and I have taken and we have been on quite a few in SE Asia. Thinagaran is a super host - full of stories, energy and contagious enthusiasm. It started with a meal in an Indian banana leaf restaurant that we greatly enjoyed. The tours of all the Buddhist and Hindu temples and the host’s detailed narrative was enthralling. The 4 hours flew by so quickly. Highly recommended!!

Thinagaran was an enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable host. I enjoyed hearing his stories and learning about different cultural groups in Kuala Lumper. Thina shared a great mix of history, cultural knowledge and personal experiences. Thank Thina!

We spent an entire afternoon immersed in KL history and the different religions. We got to see popular temples from a knowedgeable perspective which left us with a better understanding for future Hindu, or Buddhist or Chinese temples we might see in future travels. Highly recommend!
