Ben was knowledgeable, organized, flexible and made us feel comfortable from the moment we met him. He was great with my children and followed our lead in terms of what we could handle each day. We enjoyed all of our tours and will go home with plenty of wonderful stories of our adventures with our family and friends. Ben was prompt for pick up times. His vehicle was clean, comfortable and we felt safe driving with him. Ben's knowledge of history and religion were incredible as was his English. TY!

Our day trip from KL to Malaka was wonderful....our guide, Ben, was knowledgeable, energetic and charming...a pleasure to spend the day with. We would hope to work with him again on future trips to Malaysia. Malaka itself was worth the visit, to be sure...a completely different perspective on the country given its variable colonial history before independence and its state of preservation today. 5 stars!

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.

Nice guy; but poor guide; not honest and did not know much except for at the specific sites toured. No commentary on places along the long drive. This was a waste of time; we could have hired a taxi that to take us to the 2-3 sites we visited. Drive was 2 hours longer than promised, each way and we wasted 2 days in Malaysia. We do not recommend him.

(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

Absolutely fabulous tour by Ben, once again, especially enjoyed the close proximity to the monkeys and the walk through the fishing village which we would never have done on our own as felt as if we were in peoples back gardens! The seafood meal overlooking the river was amazing both location and the food. The fireflies were a once in a lifetime experience. Ben is a fantastic tour guide, we look forward to seeing him again on our next trip to KL.

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.

I must apolgise to Ben for not having writing this review before now, circumstances prevented me. Very rarely do you meet someone who impacts your life in such a positive way. Such a person is Ben. With his vast knowledge and obvious love of both his country and nature and the way he communicates both, you cannot but help enjoying your time with him. He educates in such a way you become totally immersed in what he imparts. Thank you Ben for the wonderful day and we really hope to see you again!

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

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.

My 14 year old daughter and my husband were absolutely buzzing on returning from this tour. We learnt a lot and were privileged in having access to areas where other tours did not e.g. actually getting in with the elephants, something that would have not been possible without Ben's influence and network of contacts.

What a fantastic experience!! This was our first time using "tours by Locals", and we're a bit nervous about the process working smoothly. All apprehensions faded within minutes of meeting our guide Ben - he's just great! What a spectacular day we had with touring around Kuala Lumpur - he made sure we visited all the places on our "To Do" list, and a few extra that he felt we would enjoy. His knowledge of the area, passion for his job, and friendly personality gave us an unforgettable experience.

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.

What a fantastic way to spend our 25th Wedding Anniversary in Malaysia - a trip that took in both Batu Caves and the elephant sanctuary at Kuala Gandah. Ben, our guide for the day, was a fantastic bonus being both interested in our views as much as teaching us the various elements of religious culture around Batu Caves and the history and challenges of conservation in Malaysia. He is passionate about both subjects and a thoroughly decent person as well - if you do this tour, you must do it with Ben !

What an incredible day. Ben was so knowledgeable and had so much information on every aspect of the tour, and is such a lovely and friendly person. So glad we did the tour with Ben, he made it a really pleasant stopover trip. The walk up the Batu Caves stairs was worth it for the views and the monkeys to watch at the top, and the elephant sanctuary was a lot of fun, feeding them and watching the bath. A great day!

The highlight of this tour was visiting the monkeys at the lighthouse - a lot of fun to feed them (just don't hold too many bananas at once, they'll bombard you!), and to watch the baby monkeys. Fireflies tour was interesting (Ben was very knowledgeable and passionate about all aspects of conservation), even though there weren't as many fireflies as we were expecting.

we changed to taman negara on Bens recommendation, when we discovered Cameron highlands had become a parking lot of asian tourists, due to it being a major local holiday. Ben was wonderfully flexible on this. I recommend all users of local guides discuss their proposed routes with the local guides, in case they have made a mistake- esp if revisiting old haunts which may have changed dramatically since the last visit(as was the case of the Cameron Highlands, with all the greenhouses in the tea valleys) -

Ben is clearly passionate about issues affecting the environment but he balanced this with a real understanding of economic realities. A very stimulating day in so many ways. Thanks Ben!
