We started the tour in Kl, Ariff our guide was on time at pick up and we shared this experience with 3 other couples who were on the same tour . Ariff was at all times a happy and thoughtful person who was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the tour history. He was most helpful when hotel bookings got mixed up but he always contacted his office and got things sorted out. We could not have asked for a better guide Thank you Ariff we really enjoyed it.

This tour was jam packed with sightseeing and was very informative. The bus driver was excellent at getting us safely through the winding roads of the highlands. My only complaint, was on the second and third days there was no lunch stop which we weren't aware of, so I recommend taking snacks. Otherwise a nice overview of of the highlands and Penang, the coffee shop on the last day was great, with all the different flavoured coffees for tasting and purchasing.

Our guide wasn't very good - more the type to send you off in the direction of something and wait for you in the car. The Cameron Highlands were good to see but you are sort of stranded at the resort which is lovely! as the town is a bit of hike away and more of a hike uphill back. We did actually get out at Karingsar which was good as the buildings were lovely. Overall it was worth doing as it was easier and cheaper than trying to cover the same ground yourself.

We enjoyed our tour. We especially liked the tea plantation, butterfly gardens and the Kek Lok Si Temple. Some of the other sites, though nice, weren't great and seemed to mostly just break up the long drive. Our tour guide, Morgan, was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent understanding of Malaysian culture and people. We very much enjoyed getting to know him. I had read horror stories about unsafe tour drivers in the Cameron Highlands. Morgan was an excellent, courteous and very safe driver. Bayview hotel had a nice pool and superb breakfast buffet. The Strawberry Park Resort was fully booked, so we stayed at the Heritage Hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable and an easy walk from restaurants in the town.
