Immerse in the tranquil atmosphere and cool climate of the Cameron Highlands on a day trip from Kuala Lumpur. Renowned for its farmlands, tea plantations, orchards and nurseries, the hill station is a popular getaway from the bustling Malaysian capital. Gain insight into the local culture with a knowledgeable guide who accompanies you to an Orang Asli aboriginal village. En route, you’ll see waterfalls, mossy streams and rainforest.
Our guide Thurai was easily the best part of this tour. We chose a holiday weekend in Malaysia, which meant that traffic was bad. Thurai made sure we still saw a tea plantation, strawberry farm and Orang Asli Michael Jackson. Thurai is absolutely hilarious and full of facts. The whole tour felt like a road trip with friends. Want to stop to use a western toilet? Thurai knows where to find the cleanest bathroom. Want to sample durian at a roadside stand? Thurai will arrange. Want to try to hit a target with a blow dart? Thurai will make it happen! He was very friendly and flexible when catering to all our desires. We highly recommend this tour! PS. the water bottles are hard to open but Thurai will help if you ask nicely :DDD.
Experienced guide - thoroughly recommended! I felt safe throughout the entire journey and we enjoyed a delicious lunch. The range of activities is great, too.
This is a very interesting tour. Our guide was Thurai and he was very professional, spoke English very well and had knowledge of a variety of topics. The reason that I book private tours like this is because I'm more interested in the people and what their lives are like than a historical site. Thurai was able to give us a day to remember, from the shrines, to the road side markets where the Orang Asli rainforest people sell their medicinal herbs, and what each herb is known for. He also showed us how they live today. The tour is long but well scheduled. There is time for lunch which Thurai had ordered ahead of time for us at a small Indian restaurant. The food was delicious and not as spicy as they eat. I was taken at how considerate everyone was for our comfort and the success of our day, but especially Thurai. It is a good idea to bring some things with you, such as some toilet paper and a small towel for your hands. Most places that Thurai chose for us to stop were western but it's just a good idea touring anywhere in Asia. And the trip back down the mountain is curvy so if you are prone to motion sickness you might want to bring something for that. Don't plan anything for that night as this is a long day, and there might be delays due to traffic getting back. We scheduled our trip for the first of November and although that is the start of the rainy season, this day and most days were beautiful. Also take this tour on a weekday. There will less traffic and crowds. Thank you Thurai for a memorable day!
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this, Elvin made the day that much better. Be prepared there is a lot of driving, but you can sleep in the car so not that big a deal, plus you can feed the dogs on the way up.
The highlands were really nice as well as the various animal areas, I had been to Batu before so you could probably omit.
Definitely recommend the rest of it though.
A very long day, 14 hours but worth every minute. Our driver/guide Thurai was professional and extremely knowledgeable adding to the enjoyment of the day. A great opportunity to visit this special area from KL with the added bonus of visiting the Batu Caves.
Really enjoyable tour, we booked this group tour but it was just my husband and myself on it. Our guide Elvin was very knowledgeable and talkative. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a taster of the Cameron Highlands and see the Batu caves.
This tour was amazing!
Excellent tour!! Our driver-tour guide Ram was the best! Totally recommended!
My boyfriend and I did this tour and it was a perfect day. Ram was a knowledgeable and friendly guide. It is a very long drive up to the highlands, but we still hit every spot on the tour. Ram also let us give feedback on the schedule, which helped us arrange for a very full day. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a full day with lots of sites.
I greatly enjoyed this tour and seeing the beautiful country side of Malaysia. Robert is a wonderful guide and it was obvious he was concerned about the comfort of the three of us on the tour. He was very knowledgeable about all the areas we visited.
