Excellent trip at a great price
Solotripper2605, 18-09-2022
I had booked the Kuala Selnangor fireflies, batu cave temple and Melawati hill tour. It included pick up and drop from hotel, dinner and entry tickets. It is quite reasonably priced. Our guide Mr Muraly was a knowledgeable guide, he gave us a background of the various places we visited. As I'm vegetarian, he helped arrange a veg dinner for me at a sea food restaurant :). The car arranged was clean and comfortable, the drive was great. Overall, i really enjoyed the trip and would definitely recommend the services provided by Asni tours & travel & Mr Muraly.
Kuala Selangor Glittering Fireflies Tour

Definitely recommend if you’re staying in Kuala Lumpur and want to go around! My husband and I just got back to the hotel after a 7-hour tour with Haleem. He was nothing less than amazing, accommodating, and of course an expert of Malaysian history and culture. We learned a lot from him and he was overall very nice, approachable, and friendly. He’s a safe driver and is very timely (huge bonus when you have only a few days in the city and want to do a lot). We are very pleased with this experience and will definitely be booking again with Asni Tours (requesting Haleem, if feasible) when we’re back in Kuala Lumpur ☺️ Thank you very much for a great day afternoon and evening!!!
Excellent

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Rajan TQ was very knowledgeable and shared much information about the local culture, history, and various buildings/businesses as we passed by. The stop at the Fort Altingsburg offered a beautiful overlook of the area and a distant view of the sea; the monkeys were amusing and fun to feed. We then stopped at the bustling riverfront restaurant area and enjoyed our dinner. The meal and facilities were very traditional and a new experience for us. We then boarded the jetty where we were transferred into the dark mangrove swamp to see the fireflies flash and twinkle like Christmas lights. Finally, we returned to Kuala Lumpur where we were able to see the final display of lights for the night at the River of Life. Overall, the tour was very enjoyable. The River of Life display was disappointing as it only played one song and lasted for only a couple of minutes. Our tour guide was wonderful and made this a great trip. He stopped at a roadside stand where we sampled lemang (sticky rice cooked in bamboo) and coconut water. This was an unexpected highlight of the trip. I would recommend this tour and Rajan TQ as your guide.
Few fireflies

The seafood dinner was mediocre and we only saw a few fireflies. The monkeys were by the side of the road at a park.
