Description

This interesting tour is a must for first time visitors to Kuala Lumpur. During your day the magic of this city will be unveiled to you, showing you the beauty and charm of the old and new Kuala Lumpur, also called the Garden City of Light. Malaysia's biggest city, is also relatively young as it evolved from a small town in the mid-1800s to a center for financial and commercial business.

From the port you will take a drive into the Klang Valley, where the city sits protected. The attractions and highlights are many and some warrant a photo stop, others such as the National Monument, the National Museum, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and the Tudor styled Cricket Club will be part of your view while listening to the history as you pass. At the King's Palace and the National Mosque, stop and take in the views as well as some photos.

Now you have become familiar with this bustling city and its history, your guide will take you to the world renowned Petronas Twin Towers. The ride up and the walk across the Skybridge & visit the Observation deck is one of the biggest draws of the city. The towers soar to a height of 1,483 ft and is 88 stories. It is internationally recognized symbol of modern Malaysia and designed by the famous architect Cesar Pelli. You will see the city in its entirety from here as you walk the glass walkway across.

Catch your breathe at a local restaurant for some lunch before visiting the Royal Selangor Pewter Factory. This is the largest pewter manufacturer in the world. Enjoy a brief tour around the factory in which you will not only learn about its history, but you will also be given a demonstration of some of the many processes of a pewter product such as casting, filling, polishing and hammering. A chance to bring home a wonderful souvenir should be a consideration.

Another beautiful craft that is prevalent in this area of the world is batik. We will make a brief stop at the Batik Centre, were you will discover how the popular Malaysian fabric is designed and printed. It is fascinating to see this wax and dye process and the items created with the finished fabric.

The last part of the tour will be the most exciting, as you will then proceed to the Batu Caves. This world famous limestone outcrop houses a Hindu temple and is visited by thousands of pilgrims and tourists every year. Before climbing up the 272 stairs in order to reach the main cave temple, you will have a chance to admire the impressive golden structure of the 140 feet tall statue of Hindu God Lord Murugan located at the entrance. Once reached the top you will not only be greeted by several cheeky monkeys, but you will also have a great view of the beautiful skyline of Kuala Lumpur.

Dinner at Old China Café before returning to the Port.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

By: WENDY from MIAMI


Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2018

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.

Summer Hawaii Cruise

By: CGreene


Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2018

I arranged a church group of 55 for a Hawaiian cruise. This was our first time to use ShoreTrips and we had VIP treatment as compared to the mega busloads arriving from the ship/hotels excursions. Many times we had a site all to ourselves and then were leaving when the larger groups arrived. With all of the excitement about the active volcano, we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived on the Big Island. Those taking the helicopter ride raved about the experience and others were amazed to truly explore, taste and see that there is much more to her than only the volcanos. Every guide was lovely and professional, in fact, when I asked my group of to each submit 2 of their personal favorite photos, one was a guide on the last day in Honolulu for the private Pearl Harbor/airport excursion. It was nice to choose a selection of excursions for my group and ShoreTrips truly worked hard to make every trip come to fruition. Highly recommend all types of excursions with them.
