The most we can fit in at one time is 60 pax divided into 3 concurrent groups and the shortest tour like that would be one hour. We can always make special arrangements if you give us advance notice.

Yes any number from 1 to 20 can book online. Larger groups can be arranged by email or phone. For solo travellers we do not charge admission but suggest that a voluntary donation of RM10 or equivalent would be appropriate.
