Amazing experience, learned loads about the Malaya culture and our guide was so accommodating! Loved all of it, particularly the monkey feeding. If youre in the area and have a free evening i would highly recommend this tour!

Poorly organised tour, were taken to a temple and to see monkeys, no commentary along the way, no idea of any significance of the locations. The dinner was not organised until we arrived at a row of restaurants, we were the only ones on our tour bus that had paid for a dinner so the driver organised a meal for us. The seafood dinner was awful, just some fried rice, 4 prawns deep fried and two small pieces of fish in sweet and sour sauce, served with some vegetables, was not a seafood dinner, unlike any of the meals around us and very disappointing. The group were then ready for the boat ride, again the driver organised something for the group as we arrived and we waited for a boat, the fireflies were scarce, it was way too early or they just aren't as prevalent as described. All up, a disappointing and disorganised tour, wouldn't recommend at all. Paid a premium for something that wasn't worth it.

Great tour that was more than just seeing fireflies. We visited several temples, went to a great scenic lookout over the Melaka Straits, fed some monkeys, and had a very good seafood dinner. The fireflies were very interesting and since we had never seen them before, it was all new to us. Rajan, our driver was terrific. A great host who took very good care of us, was very courteous, spoke excellent English, and made the day very memorable. Thanks Rajan for also taking pictures and sharing them with us. I love it when tour guides do that!
