Nice tour. Comfortable and pleasant trip.
Avoid this tour at all costs! It claims to be a ten hour tour - we were on the road for about 12 hours and didn't even get to visit a whole bunch of places that were promised on the tour. The traffic in Cameron Highlands was appalling which is a key part of the issue - when we got to the yummy lunch stop, we were told that, if we continued on the tour, we would likely be back at our hotel around midnight. Admittedly, we chose not to continue because we didn't want a 17 hour day with a very early morning planned for the following morning, but the tour company should be aware that what they are promising isn't able to be delivered the tour guide/driver told us the traffic happened every day and the tours always run overtime as a result. Anyway, below is a list of the places that are advertised to be visited. I've mentioned next to each whether they were or weren't.
North South Highway Drive Past - done
Handmade Basket Factory Visit Stop - not visited, the driver didn't know anything about it
Lata Iskandar Waterfall Photo Stop - done
Aborigines Village Visit Stop Blow Pipes Demonstration - we visited an Aborigines Village. The Blow Pipes Demonstration was promised later in the day at a different location and at an additional cost. We ended up saying no because we knew at this stage that we were going to arrive late back in KL already.
BOH Tea Plantation Visit Stop - done
BOH Tea Factory Visit Stop - done
Vegetable Farm Visit Stop - not done, it was beyond our lunch stop
Vegetable Market Visit Stop - not done, it was beyond our lunch stop
Strawberry Farm Visit Stop done, although we weren't able to pick strawberries because they were out of season
Butterfly Garden Visit Stop - not done, it was beyond our lunch stop
Honey Bee Farm Visit Stop - this is the same stop as the strawberry farm
Cactus Garden Visit Stop - not done, it was beyond our lunch stop
Bharat Tea Plantation Photo Stop - this is a stop on the side of the road if you request it from the driver and he is able to find a parking spot
Like I said - save your money, this tour does not deliver what it promises. You will only walk away disappointed.
