Four KL Sky Tour Packages To Choose From

There are four different KL Sky Tour Packages to choose from based on your preference and different budgets. Basic tour is the 6-minute ride and for those with greater spending power, there are the 15, 30 and 45 minute rides.

The KL Express | RM198 per person + 6% GST

If you have never experienced flying in a helicopter before and would like to try it at least once in your lifetime, you can try The KL Express. This 6 minute tour will take you to the main attractions of downtown KL including KL Tower, Merdeka Square, National Stadium and the view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

The City Explorer | RM488 per person + 6% GST

The City Explorer brings you to explore Batu Caves, where the annual Thaipusam festival is held. Then, you will fly over to Jalan Duta, home of the Federal Territory Mosque and the National Palace along with Kuala Lumpur’s home of the rich and famous. The 15 minute tour will finish with a tour of the majestic buildings of downtown KL.

The Jungle Escape | RM960 per person + 6% GST

How about concrete jungle meeting the real jungle? The Jungle Escape will bring you touring along the city scape and then, fly you to the untouched and pristine rain forests along Quartz Ridge to the Batu Dam. See the difference between tall skyscrapers to lush greenery during this 30 minute ride.

The Mountain View | RM1,388 per person + 6% GST

The 45 minute ride is probably the best and most fulfilling. You will climb up to 6,000 feet over valleys and mountains covered in lush rain forests to the Genting Highlands, the only casino in Malaysia.
