Personal Guide for Solo Travelers

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Ummi

4 hours
Up to 1 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Is it your first time in Malaysia? Are you an introvert who feels nervous about joining big tour groups or exploring the city on your own?

Don't worry -- I've got you covered. I will be your local friend cum private guide for four hours (you will not be sharing the tour with anyone else). I will also help you explore local delicacies based on your dietary needs/restrictions.

On top of that, if you have any question about solo traveling, I will be more than happy to share tips and stories.

This tour is also ideal for those on a layover in KLIA, as it starts and ends in KL Sentral, which is easily accessible from the airport. Please note, however, that it takes 1 hour to travel between these two points. I can make minor adjustments based on your time, but please let me know before booking.

Although this tour is meant for solo travelers, I can also accommodate small groups. So, if you're more than one person, please send me a message so that I can open up a slot for you.

Note: This is a walking tour. It will be done mostly by walking and taking public transports. I will bear the cost of the bus/train rides. In case of very heavy rain, the experience may get cancelled with a full refund or rescheduled (subject to my availability).
Other things to note

This experience with Ummi was exactly what I needed. I ended up having to spend more time in KL than originally planned, and had done very little research on the city. Touring with Ummi opened me up to areas of the city I doubt I would’ve found without her insight, and made the whole day easy and comfortable. She is also well-travelled, and I very much enjoyed her company!

Ummi was a fantastic guide! Meeting up was super easy, and she answered a few questions the night before. We were able to see what we wanted to, and she had a lot of deep knowledge about what we were seeing.

Ummi was great. She was able to show me around. We connected instantly cause we are both introverts. I would really recommend her with my friends who are going to Malaysia. Good job Ummi!!!

A city like KL can be a bit intimidating, this is why I absolutely loved having Ummi to show me around. It felt like we were exploring together instead of her just showing me around like a basic tour. She shared a lot about her own experiences, the culture of the city and the country and some interesting facts about the history and about the current situation. As I am a big foodie she made sure to introduce me to some local foods aswell and gave me lots of tips of other things to eat and do for my remaining time. Thanks again Ummi and see you around!

Ummi is an amazing personality who makes you feel like touring with a friend who happens to be an expert on the city. If you are on kuala lumpur and want to experience it from the foot up, its definitely much worth going on her tour.

This was such a great experience-if you are a solo traveller in Kuala Lumpur then definitely book this tour with Ummi! She was extremely lovely and it was very easy to talk with her. She knows so much about the city and we visited so many places. She also takes amazing photos! I had such a great time on this tour
