The tour was great especially our tourguide who had a lot of knowledge of the park and was very funny. Its worry mentioning that the tour is too expensive as you can buy it locally for around 60 euros

Bako was a wonderful experience altogether not least because of the knowledge, sense of humour and sensitivity to our needs of the guide Sali ( Salahin). Thank you to all concerned for a wonderful day full of wildlife and boats, Including the fight to the death between a tarantula and a bee which Sali had never seen before either . The poor tarantula lost and must have made a large meal.

Amazing tour! We saw wild pigs, probiscus monkeys,... We took a short trail that direct us to a nice beach, although we couldn't swing because I had an accident just at the end of the walk. Anyway the tour is highly recommended.

Got to see Proboscis monkeys in the wild as soon as we got off boat and again around park headquarters. Also saw Silver Leaf monkey up close.

This was a great trip and we were lucky enough to see the Probiscus monkies really close up. The guide was excellent and we had him to ourselves which was great as we went at our pace, some of the trails are quite tough, but then I am 67 years old. Lots of walks on duckboards so easy and a real chance to see tropical forests close up. The boat trip was exhilarating and overall an excellent trip.

It was an amazing tour. The guide was really friendly and if we want to spend more time on the beach, that was no problem. We were only two persons that was more then less a private tour and I enjoyed it. Defently we will come back in future again.

THIS WAS AN AWESEOM HIKE! I thought I was joining a group tour but it ended up being just me and the guide and I was happy with that! He was great. Very nice and catered to what I wanted to see- animals! I highly recommend a visit to this park. Very cool.

This is the beginners guide to the rainforest. Highly recommended and going with a guide is a must otherwise you would miss out on so much wildlife that the untrained eye does not see. Guide was so informative, engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiatic about his home that it was an experience I will never forget.

Viator lived up to its reputation completely on this trip. It was a very good day out, made even better by the guide we had: he was fantastic and knew the area and his job very very well. We would give it a five-star rating.

We saw three kinds of monkeys, had an expert guide with lots of knowledge, examined a pit viper, learned about many plants and trees, and covered two trails. We were surprised when the additional short boat ride was optional, 15 RM to see the rock formations. The van ride and hiking would be nicer if the guide would use mouthwash or do thorough tooth brushing before talking to close groups.

Well organised trip with a variety of species to view. The boat ride was very enjoyable indeed. The jungle trek needs a bit of a health warning as the paths are often steep and some parts are difficult to negotiate. Senior citizens should be cautious about the routes they choose.

Everything went well on our trip. We were picked up on time, taken by boat to the park and saw plenty of wildlife. Our tour guide provided a lot of information and was very helpful. He could have been more environmentally sensitive (not throwing cigarette butts onto beach, for example), but was still very helpful.

Excellent day! The guide was amazing, we saw three varieties of money, three varieties of snakes and two varieties of spiders as well as experincing mangrooves and forest. However, we would have liked longer, we lost an hour in the morning and were not colected due to the tide which was not made back up later as we were still taken back to our hotels at the orginal time.

A good excursion. Great views of the monkeys and wildlife and a pleasant guide. The walk was interesting but it was just before the monsoon season so very hot and humid.
My only gripe was the (it seems) common rort of charging 150Ringit for a fairly short boat trip with, I am sure, the proceeds divied up between the guide and the boat owner. This needs to be fixed.

October 2017

Only a 1 km walk in the jungle, seen 2 snakes, an earth pig and rows of ants, no monkeys nor other animals. Guide was friendly. Not worth the money. Also it turned out I paid 100 USD extra because I booked as a single person, at online payment the total amount to pay was 100 USD less than what was eventually charged to my credit card, this was a very dirty trick. Viator did not respond on my complaint, so pay attention if you book online.
