It was a wonderful experience. Host was friendly, considerate and engaging. It felt like a friend showing me around as I could joke around with him. Would highly recommend this. The experience taught me a lot.

We took a walk from the new CBD area to the old town. Seen some symbolic architectures with background history/stories. I chose to do from 3-6pm and it was quit hot. If it’s hard for you to deal with hot weather I would suggest you to do it early in the morning or later than 4.

Haziq was kind enough to take my mother in law around on a day he had not first specified for a tour. She said it was highly interesting and she thoroughly enjoyed it - high praise indeed! Thank you for looking after my almost 70 year old mother in law on her trip to KL!

Haziq knows an incredible amount about the city architecture and history and loves to share it. He was able to answer all our questions and that is saying something. We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it!

We really enjoyed listening architecture details about city's builds. My girlfriend is architect that why we chose this tour but I also enjoyed this tour. Was interesting to view Kuala Lumpur history from architecture perspective.
