The place itself was absolutely beautiful, with breathtaking views at every turn. The traditional boat experience was particularly relaxing and added a nice touch to the overall tour. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing day out.

nature is the best healer! The decision to go on the tour was absolutely correct. the whole tour was held in a comfortable mode, thanks to a very nice girl guide - Nadia. she very correctly conducted a conversation with all the guests of the tour, and unfunnyly plunged into the history of the region.

Great tour, our guide Mr Tan, was very knowledgable and friendly. The meal was excellent , transportation clean and comfortable and pick up from the hotel very convenient.

All services provided (transportation, tour guide and food were of good quality). Monkeys experience was strange (good and bad ones). Fireflies like christmas trees.

Really interesting tour. My guide Andrew was absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend this tour while you’re in KL.
