After the day on the street, on the afternoon, you will be brought to one of the best Museum in the town, the Islamic Art Museum.

    We did this tour on 30th Sept 2017. Really enjoyed this tour- we were given a general overview of Malaysia's history and culture by Lim, which was really interesting. Lim was knowledgeable and and enthusiastic in answering any questions. Lim was very accommodating and flexible in our trip itinerary according to the things we wanted to see and do. The overall experience is much more like visiting museums with a friend than taking a tour, which we really appreciated. If anyone interested in Malaysia’s history and culture, want to visit key museums in KL with a guide as your friend, then book this tour with Lim.

    Awesome experience. Lim is a great host. He took care of us very well, customized everything based on our needs. He even went down to Cyberjaya for the pickup. He is quite knowledgeable when it comes to history and culture. The first time I learned something about Islamic culture as we went to Islamic Art Museum and Lim explained a lot for us. Great sightseeing, great food, and great talks.
