We were a little worried as about 10 minutes before we were due to get on the boat out, the heavens opened for about an hour so delayed our departure - but it only highlighted the tour as we got two see a lightening storm in the distance while viewing there firefly's
unforgettable experience - a must see and do !!!
No photos as they do not come out when it is pitch black !!!
Monkeys, Eagles and Fireflies
smalone2015, 23-02-2020
This outing far exceeded our expectation. Razuan provided a safe and informative trip filled with gentle interactions with local monkeys, a great boat viewing of feeding eagles and water monitors, and, as promised, thousands of fire flies (lightning bugs). We also had a delicious seafood dinner as we viewed the setting sun. Please note, the eagles were a add on to our trip. We paid about $10 each. Well worth it!
Very relaxing but fun tour

It was great to book with private tour as we can spend more time at each tourist spots and no need to rush. Also driver explained many things about Malaysian culture. Tour included going to some places such as Muslim palace and Hindu temple.

Probably because of the weather we couldn't see that much fireflies, but bioluminescence water was incredibly beautiful. (Too dark to take picture, enjoy with your eyes!) All the procedure from booking to coming back to hotel were all very smooth. Something good to try when you are in KL!
Novel Experience - Well Worth It

Our guide Muhammad was great, really making the trip. The temple was nice although similar to most other Hindu temples although unusually it wasn't painted.

Next was a tractor ride up a hill to see/feed the monkeys. They climbed all over us to get to the food but I enjoyed this far more than I expected as they were more cute than aggressive.

Next was a fantastic meal, really tasty and far more than we could eat.

Next the Fireflies. Not what I expected , actually better. Millions of them as we slowly drifted about 1m away from the trees.

The trip was supposed to end with this but Muhammad went out of his way to take us to see the Royal Palace and the the River of Life. We got there as the display started and was far more impressive than during daylight hours.
