A Recent Review of this tour

We hired Ben for a private tour of Taman Negara in March. It was a fabulous experience and one of the highlights of our trip to Malaysia. Ben is very personable and has an excellent knowledge of the environment which really enriched the tour. We would recommend for anyone else that wants something different from the numerous run of the mill package trips available to the area.
