Private Tour: Elephant Orphanage Sanctuary Day Tour from Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The private tour was fantastic and didn't have share the experience with a bus load of people. The drive took a couple of hours, but the driver was really good and very helpful during the day. It gave more of a personal experience and we would do it again if we go back for sure. We had a great day and although the elephant ride was short, we still had experiences and the opportunity to get closer to elephants than we ever thought possible. Keep in mind that they are a semi wild elephants but are well behaved and under control of the trainers. Highly recommend this tour for families and people looking to get close to native animals.

Note from Viator
This review is based on a previous tour itinerary. Unfortunately, activities with the elephants are no longer offered due to Malaysian animal safety laws.

Pulau Payar Marine Park Snorkeling Tour from Langkawi

Langkawi, Malaysia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The marine park was beautiful and snorkelling was great fun. With the tour that we went on, if you weren't in the water you were required to stay on a floating pontoon with only an hour set aside in the afternoon after lunch where you could get a boat transfer onto the shore to admire the beach and swim. Unfortunately there seemed to be a lot of rubbish washed up which was a shame for such a beautiful place. I did hear from other guests that the scuba diving was great. A great place although could've been a little better.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The knowledge base of our tour guide really made the tour as good as it was. We learnt more about the native flora and fauna than expected and were amazed at some of the scenery and wildlife around, especially the swimming monkeys which were a treat.

Singapore Zoo Morning Tour with optional Jungle Breakfast amongst Orangutans

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Firstly, don't expect to touch the Orangutans. You still get quite close and plenty of photo opportunities with them as well as a python. It was amazing to be so close to them and enjoy a lovely breakfast as well. The zoo was really nice and you get to explore it on your own. Time for walking around the zoo is limited though before the bus departs so if you want to see all the animals you need to be conservative with your time at each exhibit but it is quite achievable with time for the gift shop as well. There is also the opportunity to remain at the zoo and find an alternative way back to your hotel (which isn't a problem) if you choose to take more time to enjoy it. We would do it again.

Singapore Zoo Night Safari Tour with optional Buffet Dinner

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Overall a great night. We would do it again for sure. Unfortunately the traffic in the city was heavy and extra travelling time meant less time at the Safari. We still got to see the shows, the park, and enjoy dinner although just that feeling of being a little rushed is the reason we gave it four stars. The creatures of the night show was fantastic. The tour company was well organised and friendly.
