Definately see this, you never know what you will see. On this occasion besides monkeys stealing food from people on our boat we got to see a Female Green Viper hanging around a tree branch. This was great from beginning to the end.
We had a great time. Very informative tour. Our guide Kairo was excellent.
Couldn't fault the tour. Many highlights.
The trip was amazing!! Loved everything about it and our guide was highly informative and learned so many things about the forest and the animals that live there!
We loved seeing the monkeys swim and the Eagles soaring high above us!
The bat cave was very interesting as well and the mangrove tour which was so exciting, as well as the fish farm that had a variety of interesting fish and we got to feed a stingray!
Afterwards we went for a boat ride out in the ocean which was quite a pleasant surprise!
and we stopped at a sandy beach for a swim, so bring your swimwear because we didn't and we highly missed out on that part!
We ended the tour was an delicious lunch on a floating restaurant!
Highly recommend this tour, this is a MUST if you go to Langkawi! Don't miss it!!
The knowledge base of our tour guide really made the tour as good as it was. We learnt more about the native flora and fauna than expected and were amazed at some of the scenery and wildlife around, especially the swimming monkeys which were a treat.
This is truely the most wonderful day trip, so much to see - snakes, bats, monkeys, fish and lots more. Our guide for the day was excellent, we learnt so much from him and he made it fun! 1 tip - dont sit at the front of the boat unless you like getting soaked!!
It was such a wonderful day, would recommend it to everyone. You will thoroughly enjoy it.
THE TOUR WAS QUITE INTERESTING, EVENLY TIMED BETWEEN STATIONS, THE GUIDE WAS EXCELLENT IN GIVING THE NARRATIONS AND OVERALL IT WAS A WELL CONDUCTED TOUR.
Even though the tour had a rough start with a missed/late hotel pick-up and not the most warm and welcoming driver, when we finally did get in our way it was worth the hassle. Our tour guide - Kairo - was an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. They don't overcrowd the boat -as we saw most other tour operators do - and they really do cater to the personalities of the group. Would definitely recommend this tour...
The tour itself is very exciting and interesting. The kids enjoyed visting the bats cave and fish farm. I wished we had a better guide.
highly recommend this tour! you get to do and see so much in one day! fanstastic value. and is actually cheaper to book through viator before departing than paying upon arrival locally. pick up was on time, travel time from palangi beach (west coast near airport) was about 45mins. wait time at venue was about 20mins due to other travellers late arrival. boats are small 4-8 people, with bench seats and a canopy for shade. free water bottles were given when we disembarked on the tour. weather was average with some rain however this had no affect, still an excellent day regardless. you see monkeys that swim and dive from the trees, eagles flying and swooping down, snakes, lizards, crabs etc... we weren't expecting to visit the crocodile cave, that was a great surprise (no crocs just a name for the cave). mid morning we stopped at the floating fish farm where you can feed fish and giant stingrays by hand. bat cave is excellent, you walk through it with an informative guide and the tourches are provided (do not pay for them). high tide prevents access to some areas but this doesn't ruin the experience. afterwards we went out to the ocean (again not expected) to feed coral fish and swim (if you want to) finished the day with a seafood lunch on a floating restaurant. Book this tour! it is amazing!
Overall this tour was good, we saw lots of eagles and monkeys. The guide was very knowledge, had good English and kept a good pace but unfortunately the tour group was too big and there was only one guide for two boats and this left us without a guide at times. The boat was good but getting on and off was a bit tricky (and we had one of the good boats there were other boats that looked even harder to get in and out of) luckily for our group one of the men on your helped us on and off at each stop. Definitely worth doing but you just need to be aware of some of the pitfalls.
Bat cave and eagle feeding were interesting. More time shd have been allocated to eagle feeding being the highlight of the tour. "Seafood" lunch was only fried rice with fried chicken. The only value add was the guide as the price is much higher than the going rates on the island being low season now.
