It was great to meet the Orangutans. Long drive but a really special experience. Rajan the driver and guide was very helpful and informative. Great tour overall!

I live in the US and the flight is over 22 hours to get to Malaysia. I thought this excursion would showcase a variety of sites in Malaysia for me and my daughter to see. The driver was nice, however, he kept asking us to go eat breakfast and we missed the 1st boat excursion. After the visit to Orang Utan, our driver took us back to the hotel. It's a 4 hour drive to get to Orang Utan. The excursion listed 7 places and the trip must consist of 4 people. That was falsely advertise. It was only my daughter and I. DO NOT go to this excursion. It's a scam. If all possible, REFUND ME please!!

Long day, but saw a lot of things. Some nice scenery at some points along the way. Saw 6 orangutans and a baby. Enjoyed the caves on the tour. Ipoh wasn’t really great to see. Could have skipped that. Overall good tour but is 12 + hours pending traffic.

Seeing the traumatized orangutans being well taken care of in their secure enclosed environment. They are free to roam and secure their own turf.

A long way to go in a day. Pick up & comfort of vehicle good. Guide friendly& English a challenge but we understood each other. Needed longer on Island & a bit poor Disney land where boats are picked up. Chinese temple very good, don’t bother with railway station.
