Take a riverboat ride to see the twinkling fireflies in the mangroves of Kuala Selangor. With a guide you'll visit Bukit Melawati and a Chinese fishing village, then indulge in a delicious seafood dinner served at a riverside restaurant. Finally, be amazed by the stars of Kampung Kuantan: bioluminescent fireflies (aka lightning bugs) that flash in synchronicity in the sky. Round-trip hotel transport is provided from Kuala Lumpur.
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
  • See native wildlife in their natural environment
  • Enjoy a romantic night including dinner
  • Popular choice with kids
Your 8-hour tour begins with hotel pickup in Kuala Lumpur in the afternoon. En route to your destination in the district of Kuala Selangor, stop first in Bukit Melawati. Learn about the hill’s tumultuous past and get a close encounter with the silvered leaf monkeys that will climb onto your shoulder for food.

On arrival at the Selangor River, you’re served a seafood dinner at a restaurant on the riverbank. Savor the sunset while fishing boats glide past, then depart for Kampung Kuantan, known for its firefly colony.

During your boat ride, watch the firefly show and be charmed by these magnificent insects that shimmer with bioluminescence in the night sky. Afterward, you’re transported back to your hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

I loved this tour. Feeding the Silver Leaf Monkeys was unreal, seeing the Eagles feeding was pretty cool and the actual Fireflies part of the tour is something I will never forget. Dinner was ok, but as we are not huge seafood fans and didn't actually specify this prior this is our own fault :

This was a great opportunity to get outside of KL and see a beautiful new area. My guide was very knowledgable and helped me better understand Malaysian culture and the beauties of this part of the world.

The tour itself Bukit Rotan temple, Bukit Melawati lighthouse, Kuala Selangor Seafood dinner, Eagle feeding and Fireflies can definitely be recommended. Regrettably the tour guide's service consisted mainly of the transport and arranging the tickets. A bit more information and interaction with the customer would be desirable.

Spectacular Views

Private Langkawi Tour with SkyBridge, Langkawi Cable Car | Mar 2020
Great experience for anyone visiting Langkawi, even though I dont particulary like heights, the view itself is worth the trip. If you are like me, just look straight ahead, views are spectacular. Be prepared, it is very hot, and humid, take water up with you and dress in something cool, and walking shoes as well.

Always on time

Private Langkawi Arrival transfer to Hotel | Jan 2020
Abu was waiting for us at the airport and a quick ride to our hotel. We arranged for him to take us out the next day around the island and the itinerary he put together was amazing. We saw it all and he did not rush us at all. Booked him to take us to our cruise ship and then after we returned back to the airport. An amazing driver

Private Day Tour of Langkawi with Cable Car and Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls | Dec 2019
Tour was good but as we were a big group including elderly and babies we didnt have enough time we had to cancel 3 activities so that we could make it to cable cars. The tour guide is not very specific about everything we wasted alot of time as well as he advised us to go on quad bikes to c the falls which we had to pay extra think the guide should have an idea of each place and how many minutes he will give us on each activity

Excellent Insider’s Food guide

Private Half-Day Hawker Trails Food Tour in George Town | Dec 2019
Our tour guide Lam was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Took us to where the locals would eat for the famous dishes and indeed the food we sampled were delicious and we wouldn’t have found these places if we searched on our own. He was also telling us stories of local areas and sights while he drove us. Highly recommended!

Driver tried to sell us more activities..

Private Langkawi Tour with SkyBridge, Langkawi Cable Car | Nov 2019
We never received a confirmation from the tour operator or Viator about the exact pick up point, luckily one of the locals was so friendly to call them. Our driver was Mohammed, his English wasn’t very good. He drove us to a beach, where we got an introduction about a boat tour to the mangroves, when I looked at the map I saw that we were all the way north of the island which is not in the direction of the cable car. He tried to sell us an extra boat ride of 2 hours that we did not want at all. When we started driving again, he was talking about a waterfall and we stopped again at a kind of travel agency desk. I went to Mohammed and I explained to him that we booked a tour of 4 hours to go to the Cable Car. He explained us that it’s going to be cloudy overthere now in the morning and that’s better to go in the afternoon.. he only wanted to sell other tours to us! After we had this conflict with him, he almost didn’t say anything anymore in the car of he gave barely any narration. When we (finally) arrived at the Cable Car we first had to line up to change our Travel Agent voucher for actual tickets and then line up for the Cable Car. We checked with Mohammed when we hadto be back and he just said take your time. When we came back to the car, he asked us if we wanted to go for lunch. I said to him that we only wanted to do the itinerary that we paid for and included a stop at Eagle Square. At that moment the drama started as he said that we would go over the 4 hours duration of the tour that was scheduled? Well, the droves us to the other side of the island to try to sell us more! At the end, after phone calls with his boss etc, he droves us over to Eagle Square and back to the cruise port where we arrived 1,5 hour later. Would not recommend this tour! The views from the Cable Car where stunning. The ticket for the little train between the top cable car station and the start of the skybridge are not included, and involves a lot of stairs so I would book that at the kiosk like we did.

Langkawi Crocodile Farm and Underwater world Visit with Private Transfers | Oct 2019
We were excited to get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures. What we saw was disappointing. A lack lustre show, poor environments, building construction sites meaning areas were closed off. Sad crocodiles with less room than a baby in a crib. Do yourself a favour and skip this one, we felt awful that we had contributed to this place. Also- be careful of the transfer drivers. Our driver encouraged us to go to a waterfall and a mangrove farm first - we were all for it until we asked repeatedly about extra charges and were told it would cost us a heap extra, and on top of that would have extended our tour by 4 hours which meant we would have had to pay the driver a heap as well. Just be wary of any friendly offers :)
