Julie ArnoldUnited Kingdom
Tony was exceptional! He is totally engaging and was full of knowledge, all delivered with a bit of humour too. We would highly recommend anyone travelling to Kuala Lumpur to contact Tony for an enlightening introduction to this beautiful city. Thank you Tony!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Julie, Thank you for your very encouraging review. I hope that you and Dave are all keeping well and safe from the nasty Covid that has put paid travel plans for many and cruisers will probably not be able to cruise again for another year. :( Nevertheless, life goes on. Best wishes to all.
From the minute we met Tony we knew we had booked a fantastic guide. The trip to KL was around an hour but Tony took that opportunity to educate us. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and was able to adapt our schedule to accommodate crowds etc. We visited Batu Caves, war memorial, palace and had great views of the towers to name just a few of our stops. Nick loved the spicy food challenge! Thanks Tony for an experience we will never forget and we wouldn't hesitate recommending you to anyone :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leasa for your kind comments and I wish I could’ve got the extra “kick” for Nick ��.
Stanley BrosterUnited Kingdom
Tony gave us a wonderful visit to Kuala Lumpur, and although we had limited time we were able to visit all the places we wanted to see. He was extremely knowledgeable and passed on lots of great information with enthusiasm. Our group of six were fully appreciative of his manner throughout, and his air conditioned minibus was always in the right place and became a cool haven at the end of each location visit. We would thoroughly recommend Tony and wish him well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stanley, It is very heartwarming to receive such a glowing feedback from you. Your friends were just wonderful guests. It made my day. Merry Christmas �� and a happy new year ��.
Angela LipeClinton, MS, United States
Tony was so great and helpful. He helped us with photos and rescued my camera batteries from a thieving monkey. Very flexible when I missed up my times as well. I highly recommend booking with Tony. We had such a great time learning about Malaysia with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That thieving monkey. .... well, made for an interesting and memorable experience. I’ll have to keep an eye out for him next time. Thank you for having me share your day. Come visit again soon.
Armenak K.United States
Tony is excellent. He is knowledgeable, energetic, and enthusiastic. We were able to schedule a tour that allowed us to customize the tour to see what certain sights. He exceeded our expectations. Tony sensed that we were interested in tasting the local delicacies. He guided us through the local Chinatown as we tried all the delicious fruit that was local to KL. We also had some great sugar cane juice from a local street vendor. Tony went above and beyond. A first rate tour. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very kind review. It feels so good that I am able to play a small part in your overall holidays experience whilst you were in KL. The next time you come, I will take you on a FOOD TOUR!.
Francesca HartwrightSouth Africa
Tony is a fantastic tour guide. We got to see so much of KL, and learn all about Malaysia's rich and fascinating history along the way. He answered all out questions and was very patient and helpful when we wanted photos. I would recommend Tony to anyone looking to not only see all the fabulous sights of KL but also consume its vibrant culture and understand how this gem of a city came to be! Thank you Tony!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Francesca for your kind review. I do hope that when you return with your family, we can do some other interesting tours as well.

Nick BatchelorUnited Kingdom
Tony was brilliant from start to finish. We had such a wonderful, truly unforgettable day all thanks to Tony's easy going personality, friendliness, knowledge and ability to tell great factual stories. We would have never had the same experience or seen the Batu Caves and elephant sanctuary in the same light without his guidance. Anyone who wishes to really see KL or it's surroundings in all its glory will definitely get that opportunity if they have Tony as their guide. Thank you Tony. Totally awesome.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nick, I'm very happy to note that you and your family had an awesome experience at the Batu Caves and the Elephant Sanctuary. I had a fantastic experience as well interacting with you and your family. I wish you all the very best of family togetherness and love. May the days ahead be just blessed for everyone. The girls have a great future ahead with you both as their parents. Love, Tony

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to have been your host. ABC are lovely and very intelligent kids. You are both doing a great parenting sacrifice.
David PattonUnited Kingdom
Tony was absolutely brilliant and a pleasure to spend the day with. His knowledge and wisdom was great to listen to. And we witnessed lightning strike the petronas towers right in front of us which left us with a lasting memory. Thanks Tony
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Whoa don’t remind me of that moment David, it was “electrifying”. Thank you for sharing the experience with me. Best wishes always.

DiAnn PlunkettUnited States
The six of us thoroughly enjoyed our day with Tony. He is very knowledgeable and willing to answer and share any questions asked. He is extremely easy to understand and his voice is loud enough that we could all hear him clearly in the van. If you are scheduled to spend a day in Kuala Lumpur you would be blessed to spend it with Tony. We all learned so much in our day with Tony. Thank you Tony!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you DiAnn for your very encouraging words. My warmest regards to all. Do visit again ��

Glorylyn AquinoUnited States
From the minute our tour was confirmed, Tony immediately contacted me and made sure we would make the best use of our time. He was very accommodating to our needs and made sure we got to the airport just in time for our connecting flight. I highly recommend a tour with Tony. He'll give you insight and some history only a local could give you. We were extremely pleased. The time went by so fast. At the end we wished our layover was a little longer so we could have explored more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also wished the layover could have been longer too but airline delays is something out of our reach. Anyway, if you're coming this way again, let me know and I will make it up to both of you. In the meantime, enjoy and celebrate life - we only live once.
Tim FarmiloeUnited Kingdom
This was exactly the tour that we asked for: a tour of the principal religions places of worship, Hindu, Islam, Chinese and Sikh. Tony gave us an appropriate level of information for 9-11 year olds and the parents are also significantly better informed. Friendly and well organised, we were looked after very well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tim. Knowing that you and the children were enriched is very encouraging for me. May the year ahead bring you all closer in love and appreciation of each other.
Carol ZinkUnited States
Tony was the BEST tour guide on our entire trip (26 days, Dubai to Singapore, 7 countries, 8 tours). He is warm and personable, extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture, and the political, educational, economic and social systems of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia. He picked us up right on time at the port, and on the hour plus drive to and from the city filled us with information and cheerfully answered all of our questions. He even fit in stops of his food tour. Book Tony for your next tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Carol, Thank you for your very gracious and encouraging review. I’ll certainly be looking forward to seeing you all again in the near future. In the meantime, keep well and stay in love. With all my warmest wishes from Kuala Lumpur, Tony.
Patricia C.United States
This is our 4th tour with Tony. We had such a good time trying out the local food, taking a boat ride and see the Straits Chinese Museum, etc. Tony told us a lot of interesting stories and we felt we know a lot more of Malaysia and it's people. Thank you Tony!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the very interesting video clip you made about the trips we took together. It will serve as a very heartfelt memory of the tours we had. Take care of Pedro, he's a good man. Give him an extra hug for me.
Patricia C.United States
Our third day with Tony and we took the train to Ipoh. This is an interesting old town with some very beautiful heritage buildings, some quaint little cafes and boutique hotels. A very informative tour to the Hakka Miners Museum. Tony took us to see what interest us most and he's the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again Pat for your kind review. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed Ipoh. Having a Hakka in your group made things more interesting. Please convey my warmest wishes to her.
Patricia C.United States
This is our 2nd tour with Tony and we had a wonderful time touring the city, going to Batu Cave and trying out street food. We are still talking about that bowl of curry noodles soup. Tony is very knowledgeable about his city and its history. We highly recommended him as your tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You did miss out on the beef noodles soup as well as the best "nasi lemak" in KL. Guess we will have to do that the next time you come. Miss you all.
Patricia C.United States
Great evening seeing the city lights! Tony took us up to the helipad for a drink and see the sun set over the city. This guy knows the spot to take a great pic! Tony is a pro, he took time to find out what our interests are and plan accordingly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Pat, it was an absolute joy to show you guys around my "little" city.
Tour with Tony was very informative and Tony was very knowledgeable on Malaccan history and also Malaysian history. Tony was the best tour leader I have had and I've been on many tours around world. He went above and beyond what was expected and I would certainly use ToursBylocals again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your raving review. Hope to see you again. With love from KL.��
Mark DarinNew Zealand

Tony is a great tour guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marc, Thank you for allowing me to share the evening in KL with you and your wonderful family. I just spent the day with Martin and Jane, Ron and the children too, and they were just wonderful. I do hope to see you all again one day. Best wishes, Tony
Liam FitzgeraldUnited Kingdom
Fantastic experience for both the adults and the children in the group. Tony has a great knowledge of the city and managed to cram a huge amount of sightseeing in a short space of time. As we had two young children, Tony was able to alter his plans on the fly and adapt the tour to make best use of our time and keep the little ones interested. I would highly recommend Tony to anyone that is looking at a layover in KL.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Liam, Thank you for your encouraging words and it is very satisfying to know that you and your family enjoyed the experience. I wish you all the very best of health and happiness.
Elvira BarisanoUnited States
My boyfriend and I spent a lovely day in Kuala Lumpur with Tony K this past Monday. We had planned a quick day trip from Singapore & had approx. 5 hours of site seeing time. Whereas other tour guides had discouraged a tour of the city b/c of time restraints, Tony assured us that we would be able to see the highlights in more than enough time. And we did. Tony met us promptly at the airport, was detailed, reliable, extremely knowledgable & an asset to the company. We highly recommend booking his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elvira. I'm glad that you had a good experience on the tour. Come visit again. We have a new nation which I'll proudly share with you.
Excellent guide, a lot of knowledge and happy to share it, very enthusiastic, we have a great tour, and we were able to see a lot of things in just one day, I totally recommend him as a guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carla for your vote of confidence. Am very happy to hear that you both had a very good experience.
