Worth doing if you like to know the history of Mahsuri. Village is setup ok, but a some parts were still under construction. The house/huts were very interesting. Guide was alright and friendly and even dropped us off at another location. However, not sure if the price is the best as it was $35USD.

Disappointing, car and driver turned up for around island tour, and asked what we wanted to do or see, we thought that was their job, as we didn't know the island, and whenever we came back to the car he was asleep. If that is the norm it was terrible!
