Wonderful and varied tour: waterfalls, craft markets, different bee farms, butterflies and strawberries full of things and animals / insects to see and the BOH Tea Center with the fantastic panoramic view and the possibility to enjoy a tea and cakes. Our truly exceptional driver / guide. He was super nice and super helpful and told us about the history of Malaysia and other details starting with the coach trip. It was also very convenient to be accompanied from Kuala Lumpur and back as it is not so easy to reach Cameron Highlands on your own. Lunch in a spectacular location with very tasty local dishes. It is a tour that we highly recommend.

You will be picked up at the hotel in the morning and brought back in the evening. Our tour guide McPall explained a lot to us during the trip, which I thought was great. The butterfly and strawberry farms were nothing special in themselves, but together with the tea farm it was a day full of interesting insights into the life of the people of the Cameron Highlands. Lunch was great! I can recommend the tour to anyone who would like to have an insight into other cultures.

A great driver / guide who had a very interesting story and was great at the wheel. The program was very well prepared and implemented, but I would change the lunch place due to bad food, poor service and terrible toilets and I would exclude the butterfly garden from the program due to the bad treatment of animals in this place - I would not like to support such a place in any way.

A must if you are in Malaysia. Tea plantations are really fascinating and you have the possibility to taste it. The guide Anuar is real added value thanks to his great knowledge of territory and tea process. the tour also include visits in a museum and butterfly greenhouse

Totally recommend, we would repeat it. Incredible and beautiful locations with interesting history. You can get a taste of the rainforest in a comfortable way.
