Past & Present - Private Tours

Experience Kuala Lumpur past and present on this half-day guided walking tour through the city's old district and its many constituent cultures. Where it all began - the confluence of the Klang and Gombak Rivers, founded in 1857 on this very patch of land.

Rewinding back 150 years at the muddy river mouth where Kuala Lumpur obtained its name and witness the rapidly changing architectural makeup of the city since independence from the British in 1957, the skyline is in a constant state of transformation as high-rise structures with strong Malay and Islamic stylistic influences of its own unique architectural style and where you will find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and people.
