Very interesting and impacting life experience to become aware of how people live in the so-called "Crab Island". Good tour guide for me

We had a very informative guide, that was great. The temple is beautiful. Enjoyed the island dine and tour. A very different living compared to KL.

The Pulau Ketam village tour gave us a perspective on Malaysian way of life outside the major cities, and it is definitely worth taking; 5/5 stars. Thean Hou is a typical Buddhist temple, which does not offer much compared to others of the same kind; 4/5 stars. Overall, it is worth taking the tour, as an alternative to Kuala Lumpur city life.

Excellent tour and very knowledgeable and helpful guide. Would definitely recommend to anyone although prepare to have your vision and sense of smell assaulted when visiting Pulau Ketam fishing village. Litter and filth everywhere.

This tour was very informative and the visit to the blue mosque was quite interesting. The village tour itself was good and guide was well informed. The walk around the village was a bit too long and could have done with being able to return to the main land earlier.

Great trip to something different. Seafood was great. Surrounding town was interesting.

I think both of us were disappointed with the Pulau Ketam Village itself. I guess we expected to see something different and all we saw was this place that was neglected, with rubbish scattered everywhere. Our guide, Bernie, was fantastic throughout the tour, quite knowledgeable and made sure we had a very enjoyable lunch on the island. The best parts of this tour are the visist to the "Blue Mosque" and the Thean Hou Temple. I will be telling my friends to visit these two places but I don't think I will be telling them to visit the village.

Temple visit was quite nice and the drive and boat trip to the crab island was enjoyable, however, it is not a place I would go back to. I expected to be able to actually visit one of the houses. Meal was quite good, but if they offer you an extra of crab, dont bother, for the amount we had it wasnt worth the money.

Long drive, then taken on an enclosed boat to Crab Island. The whole village is built on planking over stilts. Like a rubbish tip beneath the planks. Simple meal, and we paid extra to eat crab with it. Very messy though, as crabs covered in sauce. Interesting experience.

Guide was lazy and the company Viator booked this trip with was very disorganised as we did 3 tripswith them and each time it was the same story. They give you a pick up time, come late then take you to a central point with masses of people and you then join your trip. On this day it took 1 hour and a half from our pick up time to us getting on the bus for our trip. The guide did not follow the trip itinary so that the only place we went was crab island and it was obvious the guide did not want to do much, he kept saying there isn't much to see so we can stop now and you can get drink and when the group wanted to continue he was not happy..Be also warned about insects as we all got really badly bitten so bring loads of spray and also hand sanitiser as the toilets are very bad with no working hand washing facilities. Would go on trip but with different provider and this trip is not suitable for kids or older persons as getting on /off boat wvery dodgy and poor hygiene.
