Our guide Charles was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the environment. He knew every tree and plant we walked by and shared his knowledge with us along the way! Very enjoyable hike and the canopy was a great experience!
Excellent Had a very Knowledgable tour guide makes all the difference in the world also great sense of humor be ready for some great excercise going up then down.
The guide was exceptional. The trip was really worth it. You must do this trip.
AMAZING. This is something that should not be missed. The tour guide was extremely informative (I think they all would be as they work for FRIM (Forest Reseach Institute Malaysia)). The canopy walk is lovely. Learning about the different trees was interesting too.
Our guide was amazing! He retired from the research facility in the forest so he was knowledgeable on the vegetation and knew all the beautiful spots in the rainforest. The canopy walkways was amazing, much better than zip lining :)
Great tour must do!!!!
NOTE: BRING BUG REPELLANT AND WEAR LONG SLEEVES AND LONG PANTS
Beautiful. Definitely need to have some fitness, and decent walking shoes with good tread. Watch out for the leeches but don't let them put you off doing this.
A fantastic experience. Driver arrived on time at our hotel and explained things of interest along the way. Our local guide Han was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. He looked after us exceptionally well - even to the extent of running back to the main office in order to collect walking sticks for us. The scenery was amazing and well worth the climb. Our advice - wear good walking shoes for both the climb up and the walk down. Put this on your list of "Must Do" in KL.
This is a wonderful experience to walk through the rainforest, learn about nature and the canopy walk is breath taking. Guides very knowledgeable and friendly. Second time I have completed this walk.
Fantastic tour; tiring, but excellent. Really enjoyed, highly recommend; somehting you may not see too often.
A fantastic tour and guide (Fockhans,hoping I got the spelling right for his name ) Awesome scenery and well worth doing but a lot of hard work
and sweating before you reach the tree top walk and then you have to come down..........
Make sure you are reasonably fit and able to climb over rocks etc. Don't wear warm clothes but make sure you have very good walking shoes and you take insect repellant and plenty of water We
had a great experience doing this and we are both in our 50s so we are proud of ourselves in what we acheived and it showed us what you can do when you put your mind to it and push youselves that little bit more We even chose the harder way down but that's because we felt comfortable with our guide Many thanks to our fantastic young guide for all his help as this is something we can tell our grandchildren when they're older what nan and pop achieved in their 50s (and just a tad overweight too)
My guide Farhan in the Rainforest was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He had a sincere interest in his work which I was curious about and had all my questions answered. if he didn't know the answer to something he told you so and this honesty was welcomed. I highly recommend this tour as a chance to see lots of different vegetation as well as some monkeys. The Canopy Walkway was fantastic with the views it offered. Just make sure you were some good running shoes or hiking shoes/boats as the grade to it can be a little steep. All in all, a great tour.
Laurie D's review from Nov 2010 summarizes my experience as well. Driver did not do much other than transport, but the FRIM guide was extremely knowledgable and well-trained. Since I went during the rainy season, I wisely brought hiking boots and insect repellent. Like several other reviewers have commented, this hike is pretty strenuous. Before it is all said and done, you will climb and descend over 500 meters vertical through muddy trails and over a multitude of slick, rocky steps. You should be in good physical shape for this hike. I did the Batu Caves tour the same day and my quads were pretty sore the next day!
