Owner description: The best way to tour KL city is by KL Hop-On Hop-Off City Tour. KL Hop-On Hop-Off City Tour has 23 designated stops, which covers more than 70 attractions. It’s the best way of introduction to the city.

We are great fans of hop-on/hop-off buses to get your bearings in a new city but probably KL is the worst compared to Sydney, Montreal, Edinburgh, Budapest & Vienna. This is especially disappointing as the tour charges top-Dollar prices.

There were a number of other problems too. The English commentary got out of synch with the location. The buses were filthy with rubbish on the floor and drinks containers on the seats. The commentaries were out of date, so when we went to a dinner location based on the commentary we were seriously disappointed once again.

The architecture in KL is stunning but everybody is out for money and tourists are an easy target. There is widespread two-tier pricing, with tourists paying much more than Malays for the same service

The bottom line is that the KL hop-on/hop-off bus does provide a concise introduction to the city

Whilst usually this is a great way to see a new city, this was not the case for us in KL. Not so much to do with the Hop On, Hop Off company but the weight of traffic in KL which, for us, meant that what should have been a 1 hour excursion was looking like being a 3 hour crawl in the stop-go traffic. This also meant that the buses did not arrive at scheduled times at the stops.

Our bus had certainly seen better days and was a bit bashed about inside and out. The tour route itself also seemed to continually snake back on itself so you seemed to end up going up and down some streets both ways and not actually covering a lot of 'real' ground.

"Seniors" (55 or 60 yrs?) be aware that you can buy discounted tickets from official outlets but NOT from the vendors who sell the tickets by the bus stops. You can save something like half the ticket cost.

Sorry, not a good experience. If you want to get somewhere in KL, try the Metro. Now that is a GOOD experience and fast (but take very small value notes with you to buy the tickets as some machines will not accept higher value notes).

maybe this way is the easiest way to see the many tourist destination with affordable price.

1. Check the maps.
2. Examine which place you want to see.
3. Get on the bust and just stop at the KL HOHO station you want.
4. When you finished, get back to the station and wait the next KL HOHO bus arrive. 30 - 45 min every bus.

if you are lucky...there is bus which has upper open deck. so you can see the city more clearly.

We spent a day travelling around the city on the hop on and off bus & had a wonderful day. We ended up on four different buses throughout the day and staff on each bus were friendly and always happy to help with our enquires. Some stops we didn't want to get off for 20 - 30 mins but the staff were kind enough to wait a few minutes so we could get a quick photo. We saw so many different things and the bus fare is really not exspensive.

Hop on Hop off bus tour of city attractions. Good way of seeing all the sights if you only have a short time in the city. You can get on and off and the ticket lasts for 24 hours.
