Excellent guide was a star very knowledgeable the extra stops on way via monkeys and chocolate factory was a bonus. The fireflies were just amazing overall a truly exceptional experience we will do this again for sure
Nice seafood dinner and boat ride. And loved feeding the monkeys too. Lots of fun.
Excellent trip- the food was lovely - great experience for the children- Guide was very knowledgeable
There was a group of 14 with people from Australia and the Middle East - all got on well. The guide was informative, the dinner very good and the short boat ride an experience to remember. The organisation was first class, even considering KL's traffic
This tour highlighted our vacation. The boat right between masses of fire flies was like magic. The Chinese dinner was superb. Watching monkeys in the wild was very exciting. Every thing was just PERFECT
Interesting history, cute baby monkeys, nice dinner and fireflies very beautiful
A mini bus arrived on time at our hotel to collect us and there were 2 other ladies aboard. As it was an unusually small group, our tour guide filled in time by taking us to a new hindu temple which was beautiful and a stop by the sea (not so beautiful). In hindsight I would have preferred a later pick up. Our guide was great, funny and informative and made us completely relaxed. We stopped at the fort on the hill where the highlight was feeding the monkeys then onto dinner. Dinner was at a large open Chinese restaurant built over the river, it was noisy with bright fluorescent lights (typically Asian) but the food and service were good, including prawns and crab. Next onto the fireflies which were worth seeing but took about 5 mins to view via a small row boat. They are tiny but twinkle in the mangroves like xmas trees. They occupy a very small area of the river and are only in new mangrove trees. We were lucky that we were there on a moonless night at high tide which is optimum viewing time.
What a night it was great great guide lovely people. Monkey mountain was very interesting and the fly flies were out of this world. Not ever experienced anything like it before. Top marks to all concerned
Our Driver was most informative and catered for our needs and questions. He picked us up at our out of the way hotel for extra fare but well worth it as arrived late back. Loved the steamboat meal and the fireflies were amazing well worth the trip
Seeing the monkeys and the seafood dinner was very nice but the boat trip in the dark to fireflies was a let down. Long way to go to see twinkles in the trees!!!
Overall this was a very long trip considering the overall actual content. Having left at 3.30 we didnt get into the fireflies until around 7.30 at night (were there in total for about 30mins). The fireflies was a nice experience but not many of them left really. The driver was very welcoming, and we did a lot of unplanned stop-offs to fill in time before nightfall (only time you can see fire flies). Batu caves was one which was great and saved us another trip expense. Other stop was at a monkey place on a hill which took up an hour. The "seafood dinner" was at a very rough and filthy pontoon style food barn and was a pre-ordered menu (next table of trippers had the same food). Not what we had imagined at all. Chilli Crab very very hot! Rice was chinese style. Had to pay for drinks including bottled water. Arrived back at hotel around 11. Fairly expensive fee for the experience.
Not really what I would call a seafood dinner and for short trip approx 15min for boat ride not worth the money. Found that incorrect information given to other guest of how much walking and boat size, tour guides remark "Not My Problem". Would not recommend this at all.
