Melissa was fantastic - knowledgeable, accommodating, friendly, and spoke perfect English. There were 8 of us and the vehicle was great and she gave us the best possible tour. As a travel agent who was personally on this tour, I cannot say enough good things about her qualifications.

Exceptionally good. In my over 50 years of travelling I have never found a guide so competent,dedicated and cooperative. Her knowledge of her country history, customs, economy and daily life is impressive. Her english language knowledge and control is coutstanding.

Melissa was one of the best tour guides we, who have traveled and used Tours by Locals extensively, have ever had. Her college education, perfect English, sensitive awareness of the group, and total forthright honesty made this tour the cruise highlight. She even took us to the Batu caves when hundreds of locals were having a huge pilgrimage and keeping track of us alone was challenging. All 6 of us learned much and appreciated her energy and knowledge . Great tour! Julie, Minneapolis

Melissa was amazing! We weren't sure what to expect from KL but she was so informative and engaging. The kids were less than enthusiastic to tour but loved Melissa's trivia which made the day fun. We also went through a great market and had a lovely meal with Melissa's guidance and she went out of her way to get us some local fruit to try. We would visit with Melissa anytime as she's one of the best tour guides we've ever had!

We had a great tour with Melissa in KL. She met us at the cruise terminal promptly. the van was air conditioned and comfortable. Melissa spoke perfect English and was happy to impart information to us. We were shown the sights and were returned to the ship in plenty of time for departure. If we go to KL again then I would be looking to use Melissa again.

We did a tour of Kuala Lumpur with Melissa Lua today. There were 6 of us and Melissa was superb! She was on the dock as soon as we got cleared to leave the ship. The van she used was very comfortable for all of us and the driver was excellent. She had arranged everything from even making sure we had access to washrooms along the way. You really want to keep this guide! She's worth a 10 out of 10!!!

Thanks so much for being our guide in Kuala Lumpur. Through your knowledge and your excellent command in English, you managed to fill us with as much information about the city as we wished. You've got such a pleasant personality and I wish you all the very best in your career. You truly deserve it! My thanks also go to Tours By Locals for making it possible for us to meet Melissa. All the best Maria.

We had a wonderful day with Melissa in Kuala Lumpur. It was a very full itinerary but we managed to see everything promised. Melissa was extremely knowledgable and had a good sense of humour. We really enjoyed the way she shared some of her own life with us. Our bus was very comfortable and the driver very competent. There were 16 of us, and all agreed it was one of the best excursions we had done. Thank you for looking after us so well.

Melissa was the perfect guide. She was very knowledgeable and imparted a lot of information about Kuaa Lumpur. She made the figures of the Hindu gods in the Batu Caves come alive with her rich stories about them. She was very patient and accommodating with my elderly parents who were unable to move as fast as we did. She took us to a really good restaurant that was very reasonably priced. Our trip to KL was very memorable, thanks to Melissa. We highly recommend Melissa as a guide in Kuala Lumpur!

We have been lucky to meet some excellent guides through Tours by Locals but Melissa exceeded all our expectations. She has a lovely bubbly personality and an enthusiam which is infectious. We asked her to collect us from our cruise ship at port Klang, fit in an extensive tour of Kuala Lumpur and then drop us at the airport for our return flight. We had a wonderful day and, even though we met her for that short time, felt that we had been shown round Kula Lumpur by a friend. Highly Recommended!

I recommend Melissa highly. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional and her kind demeanor made it a joy to spend the day with her. Melissa met our group at at Port Klang and gave us a great highlights tour of KL, providing background information and engaging in interesting discussion along the way. She arranged for a comfortable van with a flexible itinerary and got us back to the ship in plenty of time. Overall, a stress-free experience.

Our group of 6 touring off a cruise ship were impressed with Melissa immediately. Her American English is impeccable. She was friendly, well informed and willing to answer all of our questions. She was also very flexible. We loved Kuala Lumpur because of Melissa and what she showed us. I highly recommend her!!!!!

Melissa was the best tour guide we had in years. She was so informative and explained all about Kuala Lumpar and Malaysia's history, culture and what it's like living there. She guided us through our stops at the Batu Caves, Independence Square, Central Market, Chinese Temple and the Petronas Towers. She did everything in her power to keep us on schedule and we got to see everything on our itinerary getting back to the ship in plenty of time. Melissa was great!

Melissa is hands-down the best guide we have ever used through ANY tour agency, including Tours by Locals, which have never disappointed. She is smart, totally proficient in English, charming and accommodating. She grew up in a home where her parents insisted English be spoken and also spent 5 months working and traveling in the U.S. We were a group of three couples who have arranged private tours as we cruised from Mumbai to Singapore for 18 days. Each of us was delighted with Melissa. 6 stars!
