Our guide was excellent, punctual, knowledgeable about every attraction seen. Two tea plantations, the plant where it is processed, a greenhouse of strawberries, butterflies, the local museum, a visit to the natives of the place, the waterfalls in the jungle. Lunch in the golf club. Very patient and prepared. Beautiful experience

The tour was fantastic. The driver was punctual, very nice and never put time pressure on us to continue. He had some tips and hot spots that nobody else knew. He spoke English well and was able to tell us a lot about the country and the culture. We would 100% recommend the tour.

Great tour with Anuar as our guide. He knows a lot about the history of Malaysia and Cameron Highlands and can tell it in a compelling way. Enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Very well organized.
