A Recent Review of this tour

Absolutely fabulous tour by Ben, once again, especially enjoyed the close proximity to the monkeys and the walk through the fishing village which we would never have done on our own as felt as if we were in peoples back gardens! The seafood meal overlooking the river was amazing both location and the food. The fireflies were a once in a lifetime experience. Ben is a fantastic tour guide, we look forward to seeing him again on our next trip to KL.
