This was a fantastic tour and definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Wendy is a friendly, well spoken and knowledgeable guide. She even drove us to and from the tour site in her own car because there was no drivers available at the time Thankyou Wendy!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jamie, I'm so glad that you and Belinda have enjoyed our Langkawi's landscape. And that vehicle I have used for your transfer was hired from my agent. It is a vehicle with valid hire and drive permit. The agent ran out of drivers on that day to drive that vehicle and so I have stepped in. Hope it was a comfortable ride. Thank you very much for booking with me via Toursbylocals and your time in putting your review here for me. Appreciate this.
My husband and I loved this tour! It was our first time to Langkawi and our first time sea kayaking. Wendy was so accommodating, even helping us to find our Airbnb, giving us a ride in her car, and providing recommendations for Langkawi beyond the kayaking tour. The tour itself was incredible. We learned so much about the local ecosystems and culture. Wendy was also very kind to take photos and videos for us throughout the tour. She was thorough and patient from the time we booked this tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anna and Toh, Thank you for being part of this kayaking experience and always happy that I can also be out there kayaking too. Both of you were very keen to learn and this has made the whole experience valuable. Langkawi look forward to have both of you back again soon. And not forgetting, thank you for being responsible tourists by bringing your own reusable water bottles. Thank you once again for your tour with us and your time in writing this review. Take care.

Wendy is very knowledgeable and passionate in nature conservation. On our kayaking session, she scooped an empty bottle and a plastic toy in the water. She was patient and followed our pace. My daughter and I felt safe throughout the session. She brought us to corners and nooks where there are no other tour operators around. We were able to watch and see animals which usually make rare appearances. Watching an eagle catching its breakfast in the open sea was unforgettable. Thank you, Wendy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I will not forget the moment of the White-Bellied Sea Eagle catching its breakfast. I wish I had my camera at that moment. It was a great pleasure to have you on this unique kayaking tour. Thank you so much for your time in writing this kind review. See both of you again soon in future.
Alison L.United Kingdom
Our tour with Wendy was a real highlight of our 2 weeks in Malaysia. Wendy is friendly, knowledgeable and experienced and tailored the trip for us and the conditions. The tour was varied: beautiful coastal karst, dense mangoves, wildlife and a saltwater lake. Wendy was highly informative and both her & the boat driver knew spots to find wildlife. Getting to the saltwater lake is tide dependent but even without access we would do this tour again. Would highly recommend Wendy as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alison and Russell, We were fortunate enough for the tide was just about right for us. Thank you very much for your kind review and taking me out kayaking too. Hope to see both of you back in near future.

Excellent tour, excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for booking two full days with me. You and Fernando were good company. Appreciate your review. See both of you again in near future.
Joanna BaillieUnited Kingdom
We had a brilliant tour with Wendy. She was very knowledgeable and worked to our pace (we had my 86 year old mother with us) . We had no trouble locating her at the port and from the very start she packed in so much information in. We would not hesitate in recommending her andHi Wendy she gave us far more than we expected. Very pleased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joanna and Victor, It was a great pleasure to take your family out to experience our beautiful mangroves. I would love to have all of you back visiting Langkawi in near future. Thank you very much for your kind review.
Laura LehrhoffUnited States
Wendy is an excellent guide. We had a great bird watching tour. She is amazing at spotting birds. We must have seen over 50 different species of birds in our 5 hour tour. Wendy is also personable and delightful. One of the best guides we ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura and David, I must say that you have a good pair of spotting eyes too! Thank you very much for enjoying Langkawi's birds at their humble form. And above all, thank you very much for booking with me via Toursbylocals. Look forward to seeing both of you again if you decided to return to tick off more species.
We did an island tour with Wendy. The tour was very interesting - go to places where the locals go. Wendy has done a great job - given us the necessary information about Langkawi. Next time, when we come back to Langkawi - we will hire Wendy as a tour guide again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to meet both of you and thank you for giving me the opportunity to show you our Langkawi at her best. I will be looking forward to see both of you again. Please feel free to email me your questions here prior to your next visit. Thank you very much for your kind review.
Heidi WheelerUnited States
Wendy is an exceptional tour guide! She was able to accommodate me at the last minute with my first bird watching tour. She knew all of the right places to go and we saw more than I had expected to. She kept a detailed record of every species we saw and then emailed me the info along with some pictures from our tour. At my request, she also designed my tour to include learning about the locals and their way of life. She's very knowledgeable, super flexible, friendly and speaks excellent English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi, First of all, I am glad you have made it to eating our seasonal fruit, rambutan. Secondly, it was great that you had a go with our local Buffalo ice-cream. It was a pleasure for me to be able to share some of our local experience with you besides our beautiful feathered friends. The Mountain Hawk Eagle was a bonus appearance. Thank you very much for your kind review here. Hope to see you back for the Great hornbills. Take care, Wendy, Langkawi.
Joan B.United States
Wendy was a fabulous guide! She was knowledgeable about the mangroves and we learned so much from her. She was hospitable and made sure we were comfortable with a very nice vehicle and driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure to meet you and Raymond. Langkawi's uniqueness is nature and it takes keen nature lovers like both of you to appreciate what the island can offer. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to be your nature guide and your feedback/rating is much appreciated. Looking forward to future opportunity to be your private guide. Take care.
Judy LiuUnited States
We came from California and did a private chartered boat tour with Wendy to do the Mangrove Tour. Wendy was great for our family of four in the Langkawi trip. She said this was her first private group but we would not have known because she was very knowledgeable, and did a great job. We are glad to have her for our guide. The Cha Family
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cha Family, thank you so much for being my first group under ToursbyLocals since I was listed in end-September 2016. I thoroughly have enjoyed everyone's company, enthusiasm and interest in Langkawi's natural history. I truly appreciate your time in writing a review for me and if there's any opportunity that you will be back here on the island, please drop me a message here. Once again, thank you and Happy New Year!
