        don’t do it - a grab is more efficient and probably cheaper too!
        I have done some hop on off bus tours in my life but this is definitely one of the worst experiences I’ve had in my life! Don’t really see anything- bus goes around or passes the actual site and first time I have spent so much time on the highway Other than petronas towers and a couple of other places not much to see There are no earphones on the bus and very little info presented Due to massive traffic it takes forever My advice: don’t do it

        Kl Hop-on and hop-off(RONDA RONDA KL)
        Waiting time for bus is 45mins to 1 hour, though the staff keep saying 20 mins . Staff hardly explains anything about the city and even the ones who talks you can hardly understand plus the speakers are bad , girls don't know how to talk on a microphone. Buses are not in good condition. Seats and hand rest are broken.

        Waste of time and money
        Please don't bother , absolutely useless. I'm writing this as I sit on the top deck that is covered on the night tour. No chance of seeing anything. May as well have walked and done the tour myself. Completely disorganised at the beginning through to the end.

        You can walk it faster.
        Very slow, I have used Ho Ho in other Cities but the Kuala Lumpur one is terrible, the driver would leave the bus every second or third stop and we would be left sitting there. I estimate 2 1/2 hours for the 1 route, I gave up and walked.

        Don't do it!
        On the one hand, this was inexpensive and quite a good route, but on the other hand... It was a dreadful tour with a feeling of relief when it finally ended! We waited at least 3 times for 10 to 15 minutes for "interval resetting". What they meant was, they're not running buses every 20-30 minutes as they claim (or we'd have been overtaken at least twice). Several shorter waits at other stops too. What that meant to us was sitting in the blazing sun (or the stuffy interior) with little or no information, or management of expectation. Not a bad voiceover but the route could have been done in an hour and it took more like 2.5 hours. Traffic was not a problem at all. Just a very poorly managed trip. Don't do this trip with this company. Just. Don't. Do it.

        Do not waste your money on this service
        This service was the worst hop on hop off bus that we have used through the world. The bus was in a state of disrepair, the commentary was limited to someone yelling out stop numbers on a loud speaker. We attempted to change from the city route to the garden route. When we tried to board the second bus we were waived away multiple times with no explanation. Seeing others enter the bus we tried again were we where met with verbal abuse and the threat of physical assault from the tour operator simply because we misunderstood where the operator was wanting us to line up. Where simply concise instruction would have avoided the situation As a tourism provider this behaviour is totally unacceptable and needs to stop.

        Not worth the price
        We tried this bus service for sightseeing in KL. We found it expensive and time consuming because it only ran every 30 mins approximately. It got delayed in traffic from 4pm and the final few stops took over an hour. Use Grab to get around easier and cheaper.

        On the top of the world
        Spent an evening in the restaurant buffet with family and friends from UK and Australia after spending some time walking around the observation deck. On the observation deck possible to walk around and look down on all of Kuala Lumpur, spotting famous buildings at each turn. The view of the Twin Towers is a bit disappointing as alignment means that you only see one tower really. Also good view of the new taller Merdeka 118 tower: the second tallest tower. Back to the restaurant. Satay was really good and you can eat as many as you can with all of the trimmings: even without the peanut sauce it was very tasty. Spicey fish, lamb, sushi and steak also available. And then there was the dessert selection which meant that one really had to eat even more even if full. Wide selection of western style and local catering - a taste for all. Service is also very good with someone always on hand to top up a drink or help with photos. Unfortunately the restaurant was not able to revolve as closed for repair until 16/11. Children made to feel particularly welcome.

        If there's no headphones system, give it a miss because there is no commentary.
        Very disappointing. As there was no commentary, we spent a few hours being driven around Kuala Lumpur with no idea where we were or what we were supposed to be looking at! All we got from the "commentator" was "Stop 15" or whatever. Occasionally they said something else but it was difficult to hear and even more difficult to understand! I suggest they install the headphones and choice of languages system used by EVERY other HOHO bus we've been on, and we've done a lot! It is our first choice when visiting a new city, as it gives us a good overview of the city.

        What a waste of Money ,sat in traffic for 2 hours. Then the bus was totally overcrowded with kids sitting 4 to a seat an
        What a terrible waste of time and money , sitting in traffic for 2 hours in a dangerously overcrowded bus . Use Mono Rail its cheaper and safer . As i write this , there are about 20 kids standing on top deck .

        KL sightseeing hop on hop off
        Perfect for our 48 hour trip to KL. We were able to see all the main highlights in a day getting off at the areas we were interested in and wanted to explore more. There is a section that is covered with a/c for when the humidity or heat gets too much. I would say to catch it in the morning as the afternoon seems to be when the traffic starts and you get stuck at traffic lights for long periods of time.

        Need to improve the service.
        We expected to have a similar Hop-On Hop-Off bus service as the ones in NYC. There was no audio device provided, except the bus driver announcements that were very difficult to hear. Our last bus driver announced the end of the line and invited all passengers out from the bus, even though it was 2 hours and 10 minutes before the closing time of the bus service.

        Great!
        Definitely worth using this bus. Great commentaries on both routes that we used, air conditioning inside and clean. Only waited 20 mins between buses.

        Excellent tour, excellent guide
        We spent half a day with our now friend, Mohammed Firdauz on our second day in Georgetown. Great way to get oriented & Suss out some of the main historic sites (and other sites of interest along the way). Mohammed has excellent English, has excellent knowledge - historically & otherwise - I’m very inquisitive, and he met our every need. A he’s a lovely bloke to boot. Highly recommended!

      Hussein, our driver and your operator was great. Picked up at the door, and as it was a private tour, we were able to tailor it to what we wanted. The price was reasonable and running over time was no problem. You just paid a very reasonable hourly rate for any extra time you needed. Would definitely recommend it.
