Highlights
Cruise through the mangroves by night amid thousands of twinkling fireflies
See an ancient fort, a royal burial ground, and a nature park with monkeys
Feast on fresh seafood, cooked local style, at a nearby fishing village
Relax with door-to-door round-trip transport from your hotel
What to expect
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.

Lovely visit to see the Fireflies
Jun 2019 • Couples
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.

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.

Very Interesting Experieince
Jul 2018 • Couples
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.

Fantastic food and excellent cruise to see the fireflies
May 2018 • Couples
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!

Disaster ....Asian Over Land USELESS services
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!!!

Dear Jonh, Thank you very much for your feedback which we appreciate greatly. Upon receiving your booking, as per the agreed procedure with our partner agent, we have emailed to your good self that there is surcharge to pick you you up from the Hotel, as it is located out of the City Centre. We also gave an alternative that you could be picked up at MATIC where there will no surcharge. Since it was a Saturday and our office is open till 1 pm, we asked that you revert back to us your choice by 1 pm, and if we do not hear from you we presume you would prefer to be picked up at MATIC. Unfortunately, we received your message that you wished to be picked up at MATIC at 4 pm, our office was closed and unfortunately our staff had arranged your pick up to be from your Hotel. 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. We do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and please note, we have done a full refund to our partner agent, you should be received the refund from them. Please be assured that this indeed is a rare occurrence.. As a testament to our strive for perfection, we have taken steps to improve on the gaps that have been identified. We are committed to provide our customer with the highest level of service and we welcome any comments that will help us improve If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to discuss it with our customer service team at customerservice@asianoverland.com.my. Thank you and have a nice day ahead. With warm regards Zid Chaher | CUSTOMER SERVICES

ASIA OVERLAND SERVICES do not use Absolutely SHOCKING service
Dec 2017 • Couples
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!
