Driver with positive feedback - Contacts

Hi, I noticed that while we have a FAQ for drivers with positive feedback, its hard for visitors to find their contacts.

DEs and customers with their contacts please post here, and I'll add it to the FAQ for drivers with positive feedback.

I have been asked to put details of the driver I have used to go from the city to the airport on four occasions. He is a chatty young man with a young family, he is always on time and most importantly a safe steady driver I usually allow one and quarter hours to get to airport. His prices are 80RM for night time rate and 120RM for a 4am drive. He can be contacted through CK wife, Susan, on jqsk2004@yahoo.com,. I usually email her before leaving Australia for our return trip so it is all organised but you can contact her the day before and she still arranges it. Hope this helps someone

Sorry...I was a bit caught up with work...and forgot about the post... :(

Ok, about how I met the driver, it was purely accidental. I just took a taxi from Thean Hou buddhist temple. Our plan was to get down at KL central, and we were pleasantly surprised when he put on the meter for the ride. :)

But the driver advised us against it, as we had a long day in front of us. We had plans of covering Shah Alam, and then going to Selanggor for firefly tour. He told it will be difficult to cover both using public transport, and asked us if we wanted to take his taxi. He never compelled us to take the taxi, though.

However, we decided to take the taxi and go. He was a nice guy, talked about the culture, people there, gave some details of the places we were going. He also recommended to take the eagle trip in Selanggor. While taking eagle trip, he suggested the boat driver to go further, till we can get a somewhat clearer view of Malacca Strait and i can go on and on and on... .:)

All together, he was a really nice guy, spoke good English, put meter on for short ride.

The Shah Alam - Selanggor trip costed us 250 MYR.

The details are :

hi everyone. i travel to KL often enough and I always call up Mr. Rajesh who has not a van or a luxury car but a regular Proton taxi. He is not an airport taxi as he cannot pick you up at the airport but he can drop you off and he can do tours around or out of KL. His rates are standard for the car he drives but at least you would have a good person driving you around who speaks very good English. He is quite informative and would be more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have. As I stumble upon this thread, i thought it would benefit him and the TV community to also have him on this thread. His number is: +6 016 6061061. Mr. Rajesh Kumar.

Just got back from KL and used Taufik twice after reading a few recommendations in here.

Batu Caves/Elephant Sanctuary and Putrajaya/Airport trips both at very reasonable rates

Really nice guy with good English and very informative in his relaxed, honest and unassuming manner.

He definitely gets our recommendation for what it's worth.

Gopi is good.

I had booked him before we arrived in KL and on arrival confirmed the booking.

He arrived punctually. The rates he quoted were less than half what another operator on this forum had quoted via PM.

He was helpful and considerate. He suggested we do the Eagle feeding trip since we had time on our hands and helped to fix up a boat. He even came along with us since it was just me and the kid on the trip.

He helped us order food once we got back from the Eagle trip and even took the kid (son) to the bathroom.

The next day we left for temam negara and he texted us to ask if we were doing fine.

Highly recommend him. Thanks to this thread when I found information about him.

Can anyone tell me if the recommended drivers Gopi and CK are still working? It's been a while since there was anything on this thread. We will be going to KL from 6th Sept to 9th Sept and was wondering about booking a driver to do the firefly trip
