    I really enjoyed the tour! I liked the smaller size of the group. The guide was knowledgeable and very friendly and helpful. Learned a lot about the history of Ipoh, which I really enjoyed. She also gave me good suggestions where else to visit around Ipoh. Overall, a very good experience and highly recommend to others!
