If you are looking to do, see and learn something different in and from KL, then I really recommend you to do a bike tour with MikeBikes!

Knowing KL already..(at least I thought so), I did the sunset tour together with my 14 year old son. And we learned a lot of the behind the scenes of KL that I didn’t even know existed!
We’ve all seen the Petronas towers, Merdeka Square and Petaling street but what is going on behind Chinatown or Little India? How do the locals live in the Kampung Baru? Were do they do their shopping? What’s the story behind Merdeka and the river of life project?
We learned so much about KL and it’s inhabitants during these few hours of fun (and safe) cycling through wonderful KL.
The local guides are simply amazing and they are really passionate about their KL, cycling and our well-being !
We had a tasty local dinner, and water was provided during the trip. Also we enjoyed some Malaysian rain during the trip but raincoats were provided and we all know it won’t take long before the rain is gone, as this is Malaysia!

First I though it might be dangerous to cycle in KL, and car drivers wouldn’t be used to this, but MikeBikes’ priority (besides our wellbeing) was our safety. The guides were very pro-reactive, they really know when and where to position so we could cycle our way and we were all equipped with good bikes (with basket for your bag), safety vests, lights.

Well thanks a lot for this comment! We hear also your comments from people and expats who live here. There are lots of things that will be new during the tours, even for locals. It is great that you did the tour and experienced there are some interesting places and certainly nice history and cultural stories you did not know. Haha and a Malaysian rain!? Yes, it can be all included .. Our tourist guides are flexible enough to keep the attention from the tourists and manage the weather circumstances in a good way. Thank you for your comment!

Just did the sunset biking tour with #mikebikes and it was really great! Although the company is run by two Dutch guys they hire local tour guides to do the tours and our guide today had the right balance between biking and talking. Not too many details, but the nice stories behind the sites. They speak good English and are proud to show Kuala Lumpur to the tourists. They also know the authentic places in town amongst all the big buildings. I especially like the idea behind this company, as it's a 'green' and sustainable way for tourists to enjoy the city ecologically and culturally wise. The nice thing about the sunset tour is that you see the city come alive at nighttime and you will have the chance to try some nice local food.

Hi Elke,
Thank you very much for your enthusiastic and positive review. The SUNSET and NIGHT tour is a really colored one and special if you like to experience KL at night. All the guides know a lot of the heritage and interesting buildings and places if you stop. Also they like to support if you got individual questions about transport or what to do or in what way the following days after the tour. We are very pleased that you had a great time! We also!

Today we cycled KL with MikeBikes’ 4hr classic tour through the city.

Today’s guide Maurice showed us the hidden gems of downtown KL, a.o. Kampung Baru that shows you traditional wooden houses in various bright colours. Mike & Maurice are great guides and they’ll also take you to a local Malay food market (fruit & veg and meat & fish) and let you taste authentic tropical fruit.

We had lunch at a local restaurant to enjoy Malaysia’s famous Nasi Lemak .

During the tour Maurice repeatedly informed whether equipment was still ok making sure we were safe at all times (with our 3yo son).

After the tour we had a very amiable chat with both Maurice & Mike on how the company came to stand. They deserve nothing but commercial success.

Definitely recommend MikeBikes tours for all ages!

We did the mike bike tour with our daughter of 4. Everything was arranged perfectly, like good bikes, child seat, a welcome break with drinks and lunch.
Don’t worry about safety when driving, even that is arranged by mike’s bike.

The tour itself is fantastic. We visited the local Malay cultural places and the big tourists towers. The tour guide take the time and give nice insight in the things you see.

Yes, your daughter Sophie was very amused and laughed a lot during the tour. That's really great. We also enjoyed the Classic tour and had a nice time. Thanks, and thanks for your positive comments! Mike and Maurice.

We did the best of KL classic bike tour. This tour gives you an great overview over the most interesting places in the city center of KL as well as a couple of unique spots you would probably not have discovered and visited by your own. Our two guides provided us interesting information about KL, the history of KL and different buildings. They guided us safely through the city. The bikes are great, well maintained and pretty easy to ride.
This is definitely an unique way to discover KL and if needed you can always go back to the visited places to explore it more in detail by your own.
I am looking forward to the coming up Kuala Lumpur’s Authentic Experience!! We will definitely come back for this one!
