Greet your guide and driver at your hotel and board your air-conditioned coach for the journey to Kuala Selangor, home to one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. It will still be light when you arrive, so explore the ancient fort of Kota Melawati, tour the Royal Mausoleum where the old kings of Selangor are buried, and climb to the top of Bukit Melawati. Next, head to Kuala Selangor Nature Park and look for silver-leaf monkeys, tropical birds, and rare butterflies. As the sun sets, head to a fishing village to feast on the catch of the day before you make your way to Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park. Relax as your boatman rows you through coastal mangroves and marvel as a myriad of fireflies begins to sparkle. When you land, return to your coach, which will drop you back at your hotel.

    Goosebumps!
    Face the climb or the other side, the view is not for the faint-hearted, but neither is it that you can experience elsewhere - so enjoy the moment, many have lived to tell the tale. The ride up and down are thrilling and just pray that your luck holds where you get to walk in the clouds as well as get them to move away so that you have unparalleled views.

    Enjoyed the hike to the cave. Non slip shoes are a must. Expect wet and slippery trails. Wee worth the risk step carefully when wet. Beautiful plants and insects

    Interesting experience
    Our guide, Sazali, from Asian Overland Tour, was friendly and knowledgeable. The caves themselves are also interesting for offering a glimpse into the history and people of the region. Visitors should remember to bring torches if they plan to explore the deeper recesses of the caves.

    Wonderful views
    Pretty normal cable car entrance. No plastic water bottles allowed on ride, but available at the top. Weird. The view is well worth it. Very steep ride in spots and many, many meters above the forest. View of water falls, ocean , mountains and lush forest. Good vantage points at the top and just enough signage to point out the geology and sites.

    Very bad.
    Terrible! Don’t book this tour! 1. They called one night before to informed they don’t have enough your car to cater to the service at 8am when we booked the tour that starts at 8am. So we agreed to rescheduled to 9am. 2. At 8.57am we arrived at the meeting point, driver showed that he’s still at Brunei immigration which is at least 45mins to an hour away from the meeting point. 3. We called to the service centre, the attendant said 30mins driver can arrive when we knew the driver will not be here by then. When the travel agency could have suggested to cancel the trip and refund to us but they insisted on us waiting here for NOTHING! 4. True enough, 9.37am the driver still far away from the meeting point. So I called a few times the attendant from service centre of the agency dare not to pick up my call by then, when I called a few more times they have no choice but to pick up. 5. By 9.45am, I said if the trip isn’t happening please let us know and not by letting us wait here blindly. Then she called my partner instead to say they will arrange a full refund.

    Niah Caves Exploration
    The caves were interesting and I learnt a lot ! My tour guide Charlie Sazali (from Asia Overland Tour) was really friendly and he shared a lot about Miri in general, the caves’ history and pointed out various animal sightings (bats, swallows, crickets and geckos) within the caves. We departed at 830am from hotel, had a 20-min indoor tour around the interpretation centre (like a mini museum for the Niah Caves as an introduction before our hike); there was some heavy rain so we had to wait a bit before we were allowed to begin our trek (at 11am); we exited the caves at 2.50pm and left Niah national park by 3.30pm. Lunch was slightly late due to our longer excursion (probably due to the rain delay) but it was really tasty and promptly served upon reaching the restaurant. Reached back hotel by 5.45pm. All in all - a great tour and wonderful tour guide ! Would definitely recommend! Note: quite a lot of walking to the caves on wooden plank walkway (3km) and within the caves (2km), and there will be the same walk back - so be prepared for a long walk! Wear shoes that are suitable for trekking / rough terrains and bring poncho in case of rain.

    Bad experience
    One of the worse experience that I have had. The tripadvisor didn’t send me the last version of ticket, imagine we missed the tour in the last minute. I called tripadvisor agent several times and nobody responded. I would never buy my tickets from third party agents. Btw the aquaria by itself seemed very interesting,

    Wow! What a magnificient view
    Love the oriental village even though most of the shops were still closed. Enjoyed the cable car - it is indeed the steepest ride. Been to a few cable car rides but this is definitely the steepest. Breathtaking views of the bay. A must thing to do when you are in Langkawi.

    Great trip
    The trip was amazing, and our guide as well. He was right on time and he knew many interesting facts about the nature and caves. It was well worth the money to go with this company instead of going alone. I can only recommend!

    Pleasant and enjoyable!
    We had to book hotel accommodation and travel insurance for the Langkawi Travel Bubble last minute from Thailand. Wasim from Asian Overland Services worked tirelessly even till late at night and then tried many times for the travel insurance for my husband until he got the insurance. We feel such service is to be commended and my husband and I would highly recommend their efficient and quick service to all our friends. Overall a very pleasant experience indeed!

    outstanding travel agent
    I ( Deepal Sanmayamanthrei ) stayed in Bayview hotel Langkawi for eight days. The friendliness, professionalism , timeliness , communication etc etc were outstanding. Actually i have been to many ( 30 ) countries, at least thrice a year. This is the first time i got a service like this. My hat off to the Management. I should make a special note on Mr Salman. He is brilliant. He is an asset to your company.

Full day private tour was very good. Driver and guide were at our hotel at least 1/2 hour before the pick up time. Bus was very comfortable for our group of 9 and the guide from Happy Travels was friendly, humorous and very knowledgeable about Malaysia, its people and culture. Included seafood dinner at the restaurant was fresh, delicious and with a reasonably varied menu. A stop at the Selangor Park with the tram ride to see the park and feed the monkeys was fun. The experience of the fishing boat ride along the river was not quite what was expected (thought it would be a bigger boat and lots more fireflies lighting up the night sky) however it was a first to see the synchronized beetles light up like a Christmas tree and given that cameras couldn't really capture the moment...it will live on forever in our memory...All in all a good day in Malaysia.

Well organised trip by Laurence. He included history and cultural information. We stopped to feed the monkeys which was a lovely experience. Gentle creatures but well fed, looked like they were recovering fromChristmas dinner.

We were also given the opportunity to go on a short boat trip to see fishing eagles feeding (extra cost) which was well worth it as we saw dozens of wild eagles feeding.

Dinner followed which was average and adequate then On the first boats to see the fireflies. They were fascinating if a little sparse as we had no rain that day. They are apparently most plentiful following rain.

On the return trip to Kuala Lumpur our guide added a stop at a Hindu Temple which really made the whole experience magical.

A great trip. Good value and experience. Ask for Laurence.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT waste your money with this company! We booked and fully paid for this trip and requested to know the location pick up as advised. After via email explaining it would cost an extra 75R to be collected we opted for the location meet point. We arrived in good time and waited over 30minst. We then called the company would said they had gone to our hotel!!!!!! And that it was too late!!!
We have emailed multiple times, connected via telephone and WhatsApp but Intaa (team leader) has not bothered to reply or refund us for their mistake!

We do apologize that Intan did not reply to your messages, she was on leave and she thought that Fadila who was her replacement that day, has settled the matter.

I booked this trip for Christmas eve
for my partner and I to have a special time prior to Christmas celebrations. I was told by a Niza (someone who works for the company) to meet at the MATIC (tourist information center). This was only after asking the hotel to contact Asain O Services as they hadn't communicated any pick up time or location after I had emailed them as instructed on their trip advisor website. As instructed by Niza, we went to the MATIC and waited for 1.5 hours in which the tourist information center called Asian O Services .... they were told that AOS sub contract the transport as it isn't part of AOServices. AOS "24 hour contact services" told us that we need to contact this third party travel company to find out where our transport was. The MATIC tourist info people were very helpful and found out that our transport was an hour away, on its way to the fireflies. Like us the tourist information service workers were in disbelief at this so called customer service. We were later given details of a manager in which she would give us a full refund as it was a mistake of Asian Overland Services, this person being an Intaa. I have whatsapped her my email correspondents with the logistics worker Niza proving that it's their mistake. She has seen my messages yet fails to respond. To add to this O received an email on the 26th regarding our booking 2 DAYS AFTER THE PAID TRIP!!!! DO NOT BOOK THROUGH THIS SECOND RATE COMPANY... USE ONE OF ITS COMPETITORS better yet use a taxi in which we did after the tourist info service workers kindly organised.... by far cheaper!!!

This tour was excellent. the pick up from our hotel was confirmed via email the day before and then a whatsapp confirmation text on the day of the tour kept us informed. The tour guide, Ben was very nice and kept us entertained with informative commentary on the journey. the seafood dinner was yummy and very fresh. The fireflies cruise was excellent. you got up very close to the fireflies which looked like the fairy lights on a Christmas tree. beautiful!

Hi Guys,
On the end of our amazing afternoon feeding the Monkey's our tour guide brought us to see the Eagles being fed which was well worth the side tour. We ventured to our seafood meal which was pretty ordinary, to say the least. We then ventured over to the boat that was taking us to see the fireflies. I have taken this tour prior which I felt gave people a closer opportunity to see these amazing insects. We headed out in speedboats which got us to our destination faster BUT there you see them, there you don't. It was a great experience but they need to focus on Quality, not quantity.
