Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: For anyone who wants to understand the many facets that make up Malaysia today, start with a stroll through Kuala Lumpur's oldest neighborhood. As you discover the heritage sites of KL, a tin mining settlement that has grown into a thriving metropolis, you'll also hear stories of what brought Chinese and Indian immigrants, the trades they practiced and their traditions and beliefs, many of which endure today. Sample a variety of authentic foods and see where different communities worship. Eat with locals, experience the places they live and pray and fall in love with a city and a people!

We did the Malaysia Heritage Walk because everyone recommended. But I have to admit I was disappointed. Our guide was nice and tried hard, but often he did not know much to tell us about the things and it was hard to understand him (not because of the language, because he spoke so quiet). Maybe we would have had more fun with another guide.
And we got really disappointed by the Tourist Information - we asked if they know a place where we could leave our luggage for 3 weeks (we went to Borneo and didn't want to take the whole stuff). They said we just should leave it at their place, so we hurried to the hostel to get everything and go back before the close. But when we arrived they told us, that they are sorry and the couldn't take the responsibility and we couldn't leave the stuff at their place (I have to say that it was nothing expensive, just some clothes and souvenirs).

Dear Valuable tourist . We thanks to your concern and being grateful to us about the thought of the walk . For the time being we only have less then 5 guides are regularly doing the activities .

We have done our checking and till now we have no idea which guide have been make you disappointing. Surprise us is from the first day of center operation in the year 2011 till today we did not offer storage luggage facilities. Only sometimes tourist do our activities need for few hours but never over night.

I will be very grateful if you can help us to provide more information so that we can make sure the guiding qualities are always well maintain .

Once again on behalf the Be Tourist Team we like to thanks for your time and concern for the sustainable quality.

We had a private trip for Kua Lumpur city. We started at 9am and the guide came to hotel to picked us up. The city trip lasted about 4 hours, it was quite tired but Cathrina was exceptionally professional with high knowledge of history, she spoke English quite good. We walked through Twins Tower, Islamic Arts Museum,Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC),Lake Gardens Park. Almost of attractions with different stories and she mentioned them in a funny way. Thank you Cathrina!!!

This free guided walk is a must for all first timers to Kuala Lumpur. Sean, our guide was an absolute font of knowledge. The walk was paced right for all levels of fitness and gave us enough information to continue on finding out things about KL under our own steam. I believe that in the not too distant future there may be a fee charged for these walks so get in now while it;s free.

An Excellent walk through the city! Our Guide, Victor, was quite well versed with the history of Kuala Lumpur. His enthusiasm shone through and we thoroughly enjoyed our walk. He was also very helpful in giving us directions, tips etc for the remainder of our journey. Covering various parts of KL, this was definitely one of the best things we did during our journey here. Kudos to the team! Definitely a must do if you are new to KL and are interested in its history.

Dear Valuable Guest : Appreciated your great comments on MH001 I LOVE MALAYSIA HERITAGE WALK.

Victor is only volunteer to the walk sometimes. By 2013 this walk will be chargeable so that more Passionate tourist guide like Victor will contribute more time to carry out the duty and sustain the activity.

Hope to see you back again . Thank you .
