Suresh is the BEST tour guide! He was absolutely AMAZING. Knowledgeable, caring, and kind. He shared all of the information about the history and culture and took such great care of me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND the private tour with Suresh.

A good trip spoiled by the guide and driver
Pravin_K, May 2023
I am giving this review a 3* for two reasons. First reason - did not rate our guide Shirley who wasted our time in a group showing us retail and food outlets when the group of all adults could have done this left on their own. There was no constructive line of walking around. We were going around in circles almost reaching our 100000 steps at this rate. To top all of this off, the guide was almost demanding a tip at the end?? I thought tips were given for a good service? How was her service remotely any good? The talk on the tour was mostly about her and how high profile customers had given her generous tips in the past. This is a blatant hint. Secondly, our driver had nothing but road rage whilst returning us to our hotels in rush hour traffic. Weaving in and out of traffic, shaking his head through frustration and putting the passengers in a risky situation. The only thing I got out of this was the views going up in the cable car and the choice of restaurants and bars. If you want a good day, then avoid this tour guide and her driver.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Reviewer I'm sorry to hear about your disappointing experience with the tour guide and driver. It sounds like your time was not well-spent and the service you received was not up to your expectations. It's understandable that you're frustrated with the guide's lack of focus on providing informative and constructive sightseeing, and the driver's reckless driving behavior. It's disappointing to hear that the guide was demanding a tip, which is not an appropriate behavior, and that the guide's focus was mainly on her high-profile customers, rather than on providing quality service to the current group. I appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvement, and I will pass them on to the appropriate parties so that they can be addressed and rectified for future customers. Please know that your feedback is important to us, and we will do our best to ensure that such incidents do not happen again in the future. Thank you
Overpriced..this activity can be booked yourself without viator
Kashmira_P, Apr 2023
This trip was completely over priced. We were picked up by a driver, who dropped us off at the cable car ride without any other information apart from saying he would pick us up from this point at 4pm. Masks needed to be worn on the cable cars, we were not informed about this. I had to queue with those buying tickets to just purchase them. Had I been informed I would have bought the masks before hand. The driver sent us one used ticket for skyworld. My husband had to wait for 45mins for someone in viator to issue another ticket for him. I would not recommend booking this trip via viator. They issued standard tickets which anyone could purchase themselves. We could have just travelled via taxi and bought our tickets ourself.
Was ok.
Christine_R, Apr 2023
Our driver was lovely. However, the weather didn’t permit outside adventures and the inside theme park didn’t operate until one hour before leaving. I would recommend not to go on a Sunday due to heavy traffic back to kl.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're glad to hear that you found our driver lovely. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the weather and the theme park's delayed opening. While we can't control the weather, we'll work to ensure that our guests are informed about any potential changes in the itinerary due to weather conditions. We'll also make sure to communicate any updates regarding the opening hours of the theme park to our guests in advance. Regarding your recommendation to avoid traveling on Sundays due to heavy traffic, we appreciate your feedback. We value your feedback and appreciate your recommendation. Thank you for choosing our tour service, and we hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a better experience in the future. Thank you

Heaven in the highlands
Dominique_E, Feb 2023
The cable car visit and the temple were fabulous. Well worth the trip and William was a great guide.
Nice place but Technical issues make it boring

1-I paid online tickets for my children Then they make me pay again to buy tickets because they are taller then 124. 2- technical issues in most of the games
The Genting Tour
NELYN_D, Dec 2022
The staff on the temples were so good and the prices on the outlets were reasonable. Foods were delicious and the prices were also reasonable. The tour driver adjusted his time to accommodate all of the tour passengers.. Overall, I am satisfied with the trip .
Great tour of Hinting Highland
Shakil_H, Aug 2022
Cable car ride, Casino and food spots. It was a miracle to develop the hill in such a fantastic way. Casino registration is uncomfortable process which should be made more respectable. Presently hours together prospective gambler has to stand hours together without having even a stool under his/her buttocks.
Very good tour for the money.
Larry_T, Jul 2022
All sites we expected were included and tour guide was excellent. Everything made for a good day. This kind of feedback annoys me.
Jonathan_R, Jan 2020
I had a fine time with myself and my wife. It was our first trip to malaysia and we are glad we found this tour.
Day trip to genting
Thalib_N, Dec 2019
This trip was quite informative. The driver that we got explained quite intensively that i knew so much that I didn’t know before, he helped and explained our trip in very detail , and on the return trip he took a road that helped us reach our hotel in record time , and he had all routes on his mind never used the phone
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Thank You for your positive response.
Lovely trip
arforever, Oct 2019
We had an enjoyable trip to the Genting Highlands. Our driver was calm, kind and very informative. We shared the trip with a lovely lady. The cable cars were exciting and the Buddhist Temple we visited was amazing. A very enjoyable experience. Well worth the money paid for it.
Don’t go for this package
Avinash_S, May 2019
driver didn’t give me money for skyway which was part of package . The driver was rude . I will not recommend
It doesn’t worth.
Arun_B, Apr 2019
You will get Grab taxi at RM60 for one way taxi and go at your terms. They will just take you in a bus and get you ticket for the cable car. Not professional organising, picked us at 8.45 by in a taxi and the bus came at 9.45am. It was shown as Batu Caves and Genting High lands in the itinerary, but they didn’t go to Batu Caves and they giving it as another tour. You can go both the place in one day as Batu cabes is on the way. Just RM 16 Grab taxi and from there about RM45. The guides doesn’t have much clue and they only know to describe about a chocolate shop where they will get good commission. We bought same chocolates at 1/3 price at Langkawi. Me wife n kid, were there and paid $73.5 for the trip. If we took individual taxi and cable car ticket the max expense should be $48 and you don’t have any time ristictions or wait for anyone. My advise is take a Grab Taxi ( like UBER ) to Batu Caves, then to Genting, no need to book this tour at all. It’s viable only if you are a single person. Even for 2 persons this option is expensive. More over you may have to wait or adjust atleast 1 hour for others.
Good visit

The skyway cable car was great. We had to use the old one so unfortunately couldn't stop of the Pagoda. Will be a much better tour once the attractions open. Really only shopping and eating places to see once up the top.

Darlene_T, Mar 2018
Great place to go when youre in KL. the Gandola lift was awesome! The cable car price bringin you to the top and sending you back is reasonable enough to stay and spend the day at resorts world. Fun fun fun!

The most interesting part of the trip was the cable ride and the road from Kuala Lumpur. As for the time spend after the ride it is interesting for kids. Nothing except a small commercial mall with good cofees and fastresturants.
