        Kayak through the mangroves
        A really good small group kayak tour of the mangroves. We first went and saw the bat cave and fish farm on a boat, and then kayaked for roughly 2 hours. This tour is different than the others advertised because it is focused on eco tourism and maintaining the mangroves. The lunch was delicious and overall a really good day! Would definitely recommend this tour.

        Amazing tour !
        Amazing mangrove tour with our wonderful guide Sham. Sham was extremely kind and gave us a loooot of informations about the mangroves but also about the island, the animals, etc… He is also very funny ! The captain stoped the boat at many different places to show us a lot of animals or rock formations. They don’t feed wild animals and this is also why we choose them! The mangroves are amazingly beautiful and you can see a lot of wildlife. The stop at the beach was perfect with enough time for us to enjoy it. The food was also very very good. The only thing we didn’t enjoy was the stop at the fish farm as it’s a little bit sad to see so many big fishes stuck in such small aquarium but it was quick. Everything else was really perfect. Thanks a lot to all the team !!

        Nature lovers dream !!
        I had an amazing time on this tour - I wish I could do it all over again!! Fauzan and Sham were brilliant guides, showing us the wildlife and nature in the area and answering any questions we had. We saw monitor lizards, kites, eagles, and fiddler crabs, just to name a few. They catered to all kayaking abilities while making the experience super fun - cracking jokes all the time !! They arranged a vegetarian meal for me upon my request, which was absolutely delicious and well needed after a few hours navigating the mangroves. I highly recommend booking with these guys !!

        Incredible experience - best guide
        It was an amazing tour!! We had the best guide as well, his name is Zack, he made this an unforgettable experience and we couldn't have asked for more! He is extremely thoughtful and knowledgeable, we've felt safe and taken care of the whole time. We've learnt so much about the flora and fauna of Langkawi as well. Best tour we've had in Malaysia so far. Thank you!

        What a journey!
        I had a good time kayaking in the mangrove forest. Spotted several types of unique birds, lizards and snakes very close in its natural habitat. It feels so peaceful and surreal navigating through the mangrove alleys. The journey was inspiring as the guide took their time to share his knowledge about the mangrove ecosystem thus making us immersed with nature. Very well planned tour :)

        Incredible Eco Friendly Option
        Incredible tour with a fantastic guide, Wuan. There were 3 people in our group, it was a really nice pace to take in the surroundings. Unparalleled scenery of the limestone cliffs. It’s a more sustainable choice of tourism where you feel part of nature, learn about the incredible wildlife of the mangroves and their importance without having harmful impact. Visit an ancient cave with its own colony of insect bats. During the very peaceful row through the mangroves we had the privilege of seeing a monitor lizard, spider crabs, mudskippers, macaques and not to forget the sleeping PIT VIPER which we admired from a safe distance. We also saw numerous Brahminy kites and sea eagles at the feeding area. This part was a little physically challenging mainly due to the sun and small current but if you are of average fitness and cover up you can definitely do it! We didn’t eat at the fish restaurant due to having plant-based diet ( no vegetarian/vegan option), but there are a number of restaurants back at the jetty. Our guide very kindly took high quality photos throughout and shared them with me afterwards. Overall, a highly fun and rewarding experience.

        Best tour guides in Langkawi!!
        First impression, wow!!! Sharm and Vrozen (sorry if we butchered the spelling of their names) were incredible tour guides who made us laugh a lot and have some of the best local knowledge! We did the kayaking tour and oh my goodness, paddling through the mangroves as we learnt about the island and culture was unreal! If we could rate this experience 100 stars we would! Thank you so much men, you are stars

        So fascinating!
        This tour was so fascinating and it was all thanks to our tour guide Sham. He was absolutely amazing! He had such extensive knowledge and understanding for the wildlife, and it was great learning from him. We found the kayaking quite tiring, but thanks to Sham he made it so much better by making sure to take good care of us and by being so engaging. It was wonderful talking with him and having him as our guide, do highly recommend!

        Well organized tour
        Well organized tour. I got picked up nearby the place where I stayed. Tour guide was good. He remembered everyone's names and told interesting things of the mangrove forest. The lunch just after kayaking was worth of the money. Tour guide also sent some pictures which he took from the tour for free. That was nice extra.

        - Very informative guide who told us many interesting facts about the flora and fauna in the area - The kayaking was quite challenging for beginners since it was a long stretch. Be prepared to put in a lot of arm strength! Thankfully, our guide was very patient and helped us to navigate safely through the mangrove - While kayaking, we got to view the eagle feeding, and we were lucky to sight two snakes in the mangrove - Would highly recommend for people who love nature and nature-related sports/activities

        Excellent service, local knowledge
        Very well organised tour. Our guides Sham and Phi had excellent local knowledge and we're able to share with us lots of information about the natural environment and local cultures of the area. It was great to hear about how the habitat has changed and been restored over the past 50 years. They took great care in catering for a dietary requirement. The level of service for the whole package was excellent.

      We booked the Half-Day Mangrove Safari Boat Tour and it was wonderful! Fauzan was our tour guide and he was amazing! The day started off with Fauzan picking us up from our hotel in the morning. When we finally arrived at the Langkawi Geopark, we were briefed of the itinerary and set off on a nifty boat, sort of similar to Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise boat without the underwater guide track. The bat cave was what you’d imagine it to be like - dark, damp, limestones and hanging bats. By the way, this portion of the tour involves disembarking from the boat and touring the caves on foot. Fauzan did an excellent job explaining the bats habitat. You can tell he has a genuine interest in wildlife, fauna and flora by how enthusiastic he talks about the subjects. The tour continued with a visit to a fish farm, navigation through Mangroves with a neat path through a cave/pathway, a trip to a beach for swim time/break, excursion to Kilim Geopark, lunch at the fish farm and finally ending the tour back at the Langkawi Geopark. All in all it was a memorable experience. Wear comfortable clothes and footwear. Be sure to bring water or cash on hand to purchase beverages at the beach/break location. Highly recommended tour. Fauzan will take good care of you.

      A great trip which far exceeded expectations. Other reviews are mixed but couldn't fault the knowledgeable, entertaining guide and boat captain. Ample opportunity to see the native wildlife including bats, monkeys, snakes, monitor lizards, kites and sea eagles! The boat goes much faster than expected and crossing the sea was like a roller coaster for 15 mins but never unsafe. Even the included lunch at the fish farm was good value and tasty. The timings & itinerary might depend on tides but couldn't fault our 1/2 day tour. Picked up at 9:20 prompt from Berjaya Langkawi Resort and returned at 15:15. No time spent at the beach so a change of clothes wasn't necessary but not a problem because we went to see the wildlife and flora! Give it a try!!

      We absolutely loved our trip to see the wildlife in Kilim Geoforest Park! We got picked up by Fauzan from our hotel and within 30 minutes were at the entrance to the park where we joined the other guests. Then we were off to our first stop: the bat cave. This was an amazing experience as we got to see so many bats and were also told many facts about them. We then went to the fish farm where we had a quick tour of the fish and got to order our meal for later. Next was the mangrove tour. Fauzan and our boat driver were brilliant at spotting many of the creatures and apart from lots of monkeys, we saw a Monitor lizard and Tree Viper. Our driver was so skilful with the boat and took us down a little-used waterway which meant we were away from all the other boats.
      We then had a quick swim at a beautiful beach and then an exhilarating boat trip back for lunch!
      Fauzan was a brilliant guide engaging the whole group making it great fun for everyone! I highly recommend his tour if you want to learn lots about the local wildlife.

      We booked this tour 8pm the night before and it didn’t disappoint. Fauzan picked us up on time the next morning from our hotel. This was much cheaper than some other companies offering the same tour and it was informative and fun.
      The stop for lunch offered a good standard of food.
      All in all, a great tour with Fauzan, and his other guide ( apologies for forgetting his name as he was so knowledgeable and friendly )
      Would have no hesitation in recommending the services of this company and the two wonderful, friendly guides we had the pleasure of meeting.
      Take care guys, we had a fab day!!

      Definitely worth the money and the time. The tour started off with a tour to a cave, followed by a stop-over at a fish pond, through the great mangroves and back to the fish pond/restaurant for lunch. The lead guide Fauzan did a fantastic job of explaining in detail about the history of the cave, its habitat especially the bats. He also gave a very interesting explanations about the flora surrounding the cave and their specific use in cooking..wonderful! Credit must also be given to Mr Firdaus, the staff at the fish pond. His superb efforts in explaining the various types of those special fishes is just entertaining. Bravo Firdaus! The whole mangrove safari tour on the boat, steered by Captain Kiran was very thrilling and utterly enjoyable. He made an effort to steer slowly and gracefully as we went along those mangroves, allowing Mr Fauzan to explain in detailed the various types of monkeys, kingfishes and other habitat. It was truly exciting as we got to see some rather rare fishes like the blue kingfisher. The finale was watching those birds (we were lucky to see one kingfisher) feeding on those food thrown onto the water surface..just watching them slowing gliding onto the water surface and grabbing the food just at the tip of their peak, with their wide flaps opened, before disappearing back into the blue sky...it was just truly exciting and exhilarating! We ended our safari tour with a nice, pleasant and filling lunch, served back at the fish pond. This is one half-day safari that anyone should not miss if you're around Langkawi. Bravo to the whole team.

      I don’t normally writes reviews but this is the best tour of them all! Our tour guide was so informative, funny, and had great energy— he even remembered all of our names! Unlike other tours, this tour is ethical and does not feed the animals. A great price for the amount of activities included! They even feed you lunch which was so yummy. Highly, highly recommend!

      Fantastic tour!

      The tourguide (i think his name was Sya for short) was very knowledgeable, and really emphasised the importance of being respectful to nature. It felt like I was getting to see the world in a way that didn't make me feel uncomfortable. They also did not feed the wildlife, and explained why we shouldn't.

      We saw stingrays at a fish farm (which apparently rears sea creatures to be released into the ocean), lots of swooping eagles (a majestic sight), dolphins (apparently not always seen), monkeys (with lots of cute babies), a swimming monitor lizard, snoozing bats in a cave, black bees.. It was an enjoyable experience, at a comfy pace. The tour ends at Tanjong Rhu beach, so remember your swimsuits if you wanna go into the ocean.

      Felt safe on the boat with a calm and stable captain (Am). There were sufficient life jackets prepared too. Was a bit packed on the boat but not overcrowded. Booking the trip was done through Fauzan, who was on the ball and very punctual to pick us up.

      Would recommend for sure!

      Excellent tour. Nina is a great guide with lots of interesting information about the environment we were in and some sound advice on the do not do's, which is well worth heeding. Mr Thursday the boat owner found us a variety of wildlife to see and expertly navigated through the shallow waters. Great trip would do it again.
