Had a lovely time. On arrival we had coffee/ tea drinks and snack after which we headed to the river and managed to see monkeys, monitor lizard, proboscis monkeys and alligator. We came back for dinner and then had time for many photos on the beach. Our guide DanDan took some lovely pics. He was a really good guide. We ended the trip back on the river to see fireflies. Then transported back to the hotel. A great trip.

This was great fun. The van picked us up bang on time and the tour guides were lively, amusing and knowledgeable. We saw a big group of proboscis monkeys, and had a close interaction with the long tailed macaques. The dinner was a delicious home cooked meal. The beach was a pleasant stop (even without a pristine sunset) and the fireflies were a nice ending. Overall great value for money, would recommend.

Highly recommended!! guide was interactive and very funny. would recommend it to all my fanily and friends.

excellent as always. I've used this service every time I fly.

Eddie and Comel are awesome hosts. Great pictures.
