Love meeting new people to create memories and establish long lasting impressions and friendships. I go by this saying “People may not remember what you did for them, but they remember how you made them feel”

Tour description

Welcome to Kuala Lumpur!

One of the most beautifully diversified cities in Asia. Located in Malaysia, it is home to some great history, rustic pre-war structures, and monuments that we will have be having a glimpse and glance at during the tour.

On the itinerary of our walk tour, we will visit some of the main highlights of the city, such as:

  • Tugu Negara
  • Dataran Merdeka
  • River Of Life
  • Central Market 
  • Chinatown

During our walk tour, I would be obliged to do the best of my ability to respond to all of your questions. It would also be my privilege to share my experience with you the various cultures, traditions, and social norms of the country as well as the hidden gems (eateries) that some locals may not even be familiar of :)

In a nutshell, our tour starts from Tugu Negara(Persiaran Sultan Salahuddin) and ends in Chinatown.

Before signing up, please note that this tour has got much to do with facts, history, and stories. If you seek for a tour that covers more stops to places of interest and more of a “Sights and Sounds” kind of tour, then this tour MAY NOT be what you are seeking.

Join me and let’s have a great time together and if possible, create fond memories in our very own little way!

A very informative and fun tour! We learned a lot about the country's and the city's history and also about the local culture. We also visited many of the major monuments in Kuala Lumpur and got a lot of food recommendation as well. I would highly recommend this tour with Ian once you visit Kuala Lumpur!

Highly recommend this tour with Ian! It was an absolutely worthy trip around KL with him. The information he gives in addition with the enthusiam he provides to explain every single detail makes the time fly quickly. We were absolute fans of the tour and would recommend his tour to anyone who really wants to learn about the city, society and culture of KL and Malaysia!

Excellent tour guide. If I can give 10 stars, I will give him 10 stars. He set a very high standard of free walking tour. Fun, informative, extremely understandable English and professional. After his tour, I have a very clear picture of Kuala Lumpur. Enjoy the tour very much, although it's a long run. Thanks.

El free tour con Ian ha sido de los mejores que he hecho en mi vida (y he hecho muchos!). Un recorrido pora ciudad y por la historia y cultura malaya. Hemos aprendido muchísimo de KL y del país. Además, nosotros que no tenemos un gran nivel de inglés, le hemos entendido al 99%. De verdad que es super interesante si visitas Kuala Lumpur. Gracias Ian!!
