A very very interesting experience. Unexpectedly fun ride ! Value for money and the only way to view the floating Mosque close up!

This tour is simply driving you to the sea down a non-distinct road where you go into the sea along some non-distinct shoreline and then back again. Honestly, that is it.

The tour last for about 45 minutes departing nearby the Taming Sari Tower. As it was a weekend, there were many people which had made us wait for the next trip. We had to wait for about 2 hours before our turn. The seats were numbered and commentators were given in both English and Bahasa Malaysia. A must-do trip for... More

We went back another day at around 4pm and waited until there were 10 people before we purchased tickets. No boarding was done until all seats were taken, and this took more than an hour after we...

After waiting for more than an hour for at least 15 people to start this tour, we quickly got onto vehicle and sat together as a family (3 x 3 with great grandma in 80s, grandma in 60s and 10 year-old daughter). Then, a local malay family wanted to split us up because we were not at our allocated seats... More

A good opportunity to get an overview of the city, particularly the Floating Mosque which is on the city outskirts. The Ducks are rather old (ex US Gov') but it floats. Certainly worth a go.

If you are Malaysian you receive a good discount - if you are any other nationality you pay the inflated prices. The seats in the vehicle are very close together to if you are tall, you WILL HAVE a huge problem if the staff don't want to move you to a more spacious position. The tour tales you through the...
