Ben delivered an excellent tour of KL. He is knowledgeable and gives a an interesting narration. I was unable to handle the stairs at the Batu Caves, so Ben found me a comfortable place to wait while he and my friend John went up to the caves. Ben took us to a really nice local restaurant in the centre of KL for lunch - very different from tourist eateries.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you.

(Translated from the original German): Hello Ben, I write you in my mother tongue, so I can better express what an excellent tour guide you are. Our group fell in love with Malaysia from just 7 hours with you. With your kindness, with your smile, with your expertise, with your spontaneity (photos at Petronas Tower) and flexibility (traditional village outside of KL), you have fulfilled more than all our wishes. On our next visit to KL the guide will certainly be called BEN. Friedhelm

Ben is an excellent tour guide and a very safe driver. He made our trip to Kualalumpur unforgetable. His explanations about the country, history, people, culture were very interesting and he showed us exactely the places we wanted to see (even handycraft and art galleries - he could find perfect places for us) - exciting but still very relaxing. Perfect for us - even our 9 year old son (had only 2 years english at school) could follow Ben's explanations. Next time we will book Ben to discover nature.

Ben was very informative and gave us a real insight into life in Malaysia. He met us off the ship and he was very keen that we should decide on a programme to suit all three of us. We went to the centre of KL first to see the modern side of life and as we were more interested in local customs and villages, he changed the plan and took us to a Kampong village where we had lunch in a restaurant with local people. He was very knowledgeable and flexible enabling us to set our own pace and programme.5*guide

The tour was just excellent. He was on time at the port and everything was seamless. He had great insight and was a wealth of knowledge. He knew the best photo spots, shopping, and food, and adjusted the tour to suit our needs. I was so happy he included the beautiful Chinese Temple at the end. Ben was very professional and relaxed, adaptable and a great guy. His English was superb so he was easy to understand. We did not feel rushed and all of us had a most memorable day.

I cannot say enough about this wonderful, wonderful man! Ben's knowledge of and enthusiasm for KL and its history is vast and infectious. Never have I ever come across a tour guide (and I've had many in my travels) so educated and sophisticated--not to mention kind and considerate! Ben went above and beyond and even assisted me in shipping back my (heavy and unwieldy) souvenirs to the US! If you are going to Malaysia, enlist Ben immediately--there is no one better to show you around!

Ben turned some unforeseen problems into NO PROBLEM! The ship docked in a different location than planned but he figured it out and was at the gate waiting for us as we arrived off the ship. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us the opportunities we wanted to enjoy and get a feel for Kuala Lumpur. When we arrived back at the port it was raining and he stayed with us until the shuttle bus arrived so we wouldn't be left out in the rain.

Ben is Awesome. From the first moment he spoke I was just so thrilled to have him as my guide. He came to feel like a dear friend rather than a stranger I just met. He is so easy to talk to and filled with so much insight and information I could hardly believe my fortune to have him to enjoy my day. The day was perfect in every way. We had a blast and just hit it off and spoke about our respective lives. I am a woman of 47 travelling alone for my first trip ever to Asia. Thank you Ben for being KL.

We had a wonderful and informative tour with Ben. He is a wealth of knowledge and is very good at articulating that knowledge. My group certainly learned a great deal about Kuala Lumpur and its history. Ben is a very intuitive person, able to recognize the mix of his customers and carry on a conversation based on these perceptions. He was very sensitive to some of the physical limitations of our party and adjusted our visits to accommodate the special needs of our party. All in all, Ben is a delight.

Ben is an excellent guide, he knows lots of details about the sites we went to and helped explain the context clearly- learned a lot, from Hinduism to the environment. The pace of the tour was just right. Ben was flexible enough to make alterations to suit my interests and food tastes! - an excellent day and good value for money.

Ben is much more than a guide. On time, well spoken, with a keen interest for his guest(s) and needs, an awesome knowledge about Malaysia (nature, history, people) and above all a very likeable person to spend your time with. I liked my time with Ben immensely. He enhanced my view in many ways. Have the benefit of his knowledge and thoughts during your time in Malaysia and be surprised.

Ben gave a continuous and interesting commentary as we drove into Kuala Lumpur. The tour gave us a good coverage of the City.

Ben was very knowledgeable and fulfilled the itinerary we had requested. My only reservation was that we are very interested in photography and I had supplied some suggestions of places to photograph from (especially the towers) but we ran out of time because we spent too much time at the market and were unable to go to the best places to photograph. The car and driver were especially good and we appreciated Ben's professionalism.

Ben is an exceptional guide, who wants to show his city and his country and yet wants to discover who we are, where we come from. His fight for sustainable living, for keeping cultural and architectural heritage for future generations is worth noting. What we liked also is his flexibility and how he managed to make us see what we most wanted within the constraints of time given to him. Thank you Ben.

Arriving early in the morning and leaving late at night we searched for a guide. Ben wrote us that he was flexible with time and he really was. He gave us a mix cultural and daily lives during our visit to Kuala Lumpur. We came as strangers and we left as friends. And now for my Dutch fellow-citizen: het is meer dan de moeite waard met Ben in zee te gaan, van morgens 07.00 tot avond 19.00 ipv de genoemde 6 uur. Bravo Ben en nogmaals bedankt van Lidy en Kees de Visser, Terborg, Nederland.
