The day tour was marvellous. This was my best time in Malaysia! The nature is amazing and the guides are exceptional. As a solo female traveler, I felt completely safe the whole time and taken care of the whole time. The guides are local and they have grown up there, so they know everything and can show you very interesting things in the forest.
Note: You can actually sleep there in a very good bungalow! It was my last day in KL and I didn’t know that and I wish i did. You can explore a lot there.
Many thanks to Emi and to Gladwin for leaving me the best memory of Malaysia!
Great day for the price

Great personal tour experience. Driver picked my friend and I up at the airport and provided a very informational ride to the rainforest. We had another great guide show us through the rainforest and to the canopy walk. Hit the Batu Caves on the way back from the rainforest and it was a perfect way to end the day.
The entire experience exceeded my expectations. All tour guides were welcoming, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to ensure my boyfriend and I had a grest experience. The day didn't feel scripted or streamlined - it felt very personal and unique.
October was a great time to visit Taman Negara. The weather was perfect, and crowds were low/non-existent.
I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone.
Ram is the best!!
We made this tour and everything was perfect! We had an unforgettable day with our driver Ram, he shared us a lot of his experience and we learned so much about Malaysia. We are very thankful for that! Our guide, Angha, at Taman Negara was very kindful and we had a perfect day with her! All together everything was perfect and we were very happy that we decided to book that tour. Thank you guys!!! Your Caroline, Irene and Marina.
Great experience on the jungle trekking
The jungle trekking tour was excellent and we love it very much. You will enjoy the great scenery of the jungle and sharing by the guide. One important note to everyone, please stay extra careful when you walk on the pathway to Bukit Teresek as some of the pathway was damaged and it might cause accidents.
