What people are saying about Selangor

A long and action-packed day but totally worth it! The day started with a hike to the viewpoints (first 1.7km of stairs uphill, but the views are amazing) after which we could walk along several canopies - really cool experience! In the afternoon we went to visit a village of indigenous people which we also really enjoyed. Last activity was the rafting back to the car - it is a good idea to bring a change of clothes and flipflops for the boat. Also recommend to bring water and bug spray! This was one of the coolest days of our 2,5weeks trip, warmly recommend :)

This activity has been perfect to spend a full day in the Taman Negara. Time is very well distributed and used. Our guide, Amal, has been very kind and funny, with a lot of knowledge about the area and very professional. The driver, Sabran, very friendly. Bearing in mind that getting to Taman Negara from Kuala Lumpur is quite a long journey (3-4 hours) by car, Sabran has made it very enjoyable and entertaining for us, giving us recommendations for places, excursions and places to eat. All a success if what you have is limited time to visit Malaysia!

The tour was well organised and we had a comfortable premium car that drove is to Taman Negara in about 3 hrs. The tour in the park was amazing! What a beautiful place. Our driver Sara talked a lot, but it was good fun and he told us a lot about Malaysia and the culture.

Very pleasant day, we actually did not know what exactly to expect, but we have enjoyed all the parts, the guide explanation of the jungle, the canopy walk, the tribe village, the boat ride as well as the lunch.

Great experience! Never wanted it to end.. the team is so friendly and professional Must do in KL
