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!
Another amazing tour. The climb was hard work but well worth it. The guides were very knowledgable and very friendly. The canopy is beautiful and we even managed to spot a few native animals including giant ants and lizards. The leech was a little freaky but still fun!
It was excellent! We were collected from our hotel on time by a courteous and helpful driver. He delivered us into the hands of an expert guide who conducted us around the rainforest walk and across the walkway. The walkway was spectacular. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained clearly what we were passing by and pointed out special features of plantsand trees. Parts of the walk were quite demanding but our guide was always mindful of our safety and well-being. His help and consideration made this a memorable event. We are very grateful to both our guide and the driver.

Exhausting but it was really worth the walk. Sights were amazing!
This trip was well worth it - having a private tour guide was the best because we could direct the tour and my kids were able to freely ask all of their questions. It was disappointing because the canopy walk was closed for renovations, but we were called the day before and told about this. It was our choice to go ahead with the tour, and it was worth it. Our guide was so knowledgeable and interesting.
I really enjoyed the tour, the rainforest walk and canopy walkway were very interesting. The guide was very good, experienced, knowledgeable and friendly.
The tour is well worth doing.
from the pickup at hotel to the tour itself everyone was friendly and very knowledgable - thoroughly enjoyed myself!!
Enjoyable day out and nice to see so much greenery in Kuala Lumpur - the walk is quite long and steep so you don't want to be tired for this one, and definitely remember to bring sufficient insect repellant given the tropical environment
The walk was very demanding. My husband did not make it to the canopy, but I did. We were exhausted but I loved the canopy walk !!! Our guide was superb !
Loved this! Not tor the fair t hearted but it's really worth the effort and the guide was very patient and knowledge. Wear long sleeves and trousers and take plenty of water. Beautiful.
The hiking was slightly tough on a typical hot day in KL, but the great view on canopy top was worth it. FRIM is 40min car ride from KL Sentral. The forest tour guide was passionate and very informative. Remember to wear good walking shoes and insect repellent.
Interesting little trek...make sure you have mosquito spray for the early part of the trek.
