          This was one of the most unforgettable experiences we've had - absolutely phenomenal from start to finish, stunning scenery and exceptionally friendly host and staff that went above and beyond. We felt so welcome, and thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated all the additional information and help we received. Easily the best thing we've done in Malaysia, and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone considering the experience - be sure to spend some time in the hotel too, Sarang by the Brook!! Faultless, worth every penny and more, do not miss this out on your visit to KL / Malaysia. The river rafting was exciting, varied and lasted ages - also feeling very safe and confident with the experience and professionalism on display. My first time rafting and I worry I won't find a better place or company to do it with. Thank you ever so much for an amazing time, it is at the top of our list to do again when back in the area!!

          White water rafting - great family day
          From pick up to drop off the day was phenomenal. Really yummy local breakfast and tour of the town before heading off to the river. The rafting was so much fun, with the day tailored to our skill and enthusiasm level. Chen and his crew delivered in spades. Thanks so much!

          Brilliany wilderness excursion out of KL
          Being with Chen at his jungle container resort was truly an exceptional experience. Looking for a one night escape out of KL we came across Primal Wilderness Experience in our google search. We saw that the reviews were excellent but held low expectations. Chen made the trip amazing, he picked us up in a van and we drove for an hour north of KL. The stories and conversation we had in the van made us feel like we were long term friends. We arrived expecting low budget accommodation but the pool and container rooms were great with en-suite, air-conditioning and multi plugs for our European chargers and they were extremely clean. It was a very laid back setting and chatting with other guests by the pool made us feel very, very comfortable. Would highly recommend it for anyone seeking a wilderness escape out of KL.

          Chen was an amazing tour guide!
          If you want a great jungle experience, this is the one for you! Our guide (Chen) was fantastic - experienced, knowledgeable, articulate, and best of all - has a great sense of humour! We chose the tougher "mountain" walk - you need to have reasonable level of fitness and be prepared for a lot of climbing (up, and then down) - but a great experience!

          Great guide!
          We had a lovely time with Chen. He came and picked us up from our apartment and kindly took us to a lovely breakfast spot before we set off into the jungle. Chen is very charismatic and has vast knowledge of the jungle and told us some great stories with some jungle tips along the way, as well as advising about all the animals we might see. We often stopped off at some water falls for a quick cool off so you get time to relax. Chen really gets you to feel the essence of it all and you feel perfectly safe with him. It’s not hugely exhausting but it helps to be a fairly active person who doesn’t mind the odd insect flying at you! We even went for a quick tour of China Town after the hike as Chen wanted to show us off some good places to eat! The perfect guide!

          fantastic nature trek
          Chen is a very knowledgeable guide about his region and wildlife and a very agreeable person. He will bring you to a truly fantastic natural place. If you want to see Malaysia's nature easily (I mean close to KL), don't hesitate !

          One amazing day in nature!
          On my last holiday in KL I wanted to take two German friends - being in Asia for the first time - to the jungle within reach from KL and came across the excellent ratings of this experience on Tripadvisor. Therefore I had high expectations and they were completely satisfied. First of all Chen got back to me immediatly after asking for a possible date and was always reliable in respect to communication and on time to pick us up. Chen is utmost friendly, drives carefully, speaks a great English, had many interesting stories to tell and showed us a lot. I’ve been in various jungles and seen amazing places on Borneo but considering the close distance to KL this was a beautiful spot. Chen ensured, that we had space and peace in the jungle, making us walk in distance to one another to fully experience the wilderness. He stopped a special spots for us to enjoy a view, to show us something or for us to take a rest, walking uphill quite a while. He told us how to carefully enter the waterfall and left us to swim and eat – taking himself out for a moment. He made us begin with an Indian breakfast, have a excellent Malay lunch at the waterfall and a Chinese dinner at a great little restaurant in town. And on top of all Chen stopped for us to have some Durian :). And I loved his environmental friendly attitude. Couldn't have imagined a better. We'll be back! Thank you, for everything, Chen!

          Primal wilderness experience to remember!
          It was an experience to build fond memories to look back to. We went with 2 teenagers and Chen guided us on a unique jungle experience .. and even though we went in peak season, we had the waterfall and opportunities to swim in all to ourselves. Not only is Chen very experienced and knowledgeable about jungle life, he is an easy going and patient guide making the jungle experience not only challenging for us but comfortable as well. Yes, we walked through mud, yes we climbed some small cliffs but manageable, yes you get to swim in and under waterfalls, and yes if you are lucky, you may see wild life but Chen knows his way round and what to do. We felt safe with him. This is why it is a once in lifetime experience to remember!!

          We managed to book a trip to the waterfalls with a really short notice. The guide was absolutely fantastic and we sure had a memorable day, I can warmly recommend the tour :)

          Exceptional!
          I visited with 2 other friends for the white water rafting. We were picked up from our hostel in KL by the man himself, Chen. We did the rafting that day with a crew of experienced guides that were very good with us as we were all of different experience levels. Pictures and videos were taken and supplied afterwards via a shared Dropbox folder. The accommodation was fantastic. We stopped for one night but I would have been happy to stop for a week! All the facilities you could need were supplied. Chen was a great host and very knowledgeable of the area and history. A must if you're visiting KL!!!! Would do it again in a heartbeat.

          Thank you Chen for your kindness! He has been like a friend for us, he took us to a wonderful waterfall through the forest, he made us try different types of food and gave us a unique place where to sleep.

          White Water Rafting and Accommodation Stay
          Guvnor Chen was exceptional as a tour guide. Met us at Sentral train station and drove us to the accommodation for the evening. Fairly basic remote accommodation but was fine for the three of us. Guvnor took us to dinner and breakfast and told us so much history of the area. After breakfast did white water rafting which was excellent fun with wife and 13 year old daughter. Finished with a great lunch and then a lift to our KL accommodation. Highly recommend.

          Waterfall Hike
          Great experience! Chen was our guide and really made the trip a memorable one. He shared stories about Malaysian history and legends and was very knowledgeable about the plant life along the hike. We had Indian food for breakfast, Malaysian food for lunch, and Chinese food for dinner allowing us to experience the local food from each of the main Malaysian cultures.

        Excellent trip with a brilliant & helpful guide, Chen who made contact via WhatsApp before & leading up to the trip giving lots of info including what we'd need to bring. On the day, prompt collection from our city centre hotel, before travelling to a little town for an authentic Indian breakfast. Chen describes everything so well, including fascinating recent Malaysian history and info about the local cultures. Lovely traditional Malaysian picnic lunch provided & also a local Chinese noodle dinner afterwards. The trek is physically quite tough if you are unfit. My husband was carrying an injury and did struggle a bit, but Chen kept the pace reasonable to account for this & helped him on the way down. There were regular water breaks too. However, the exertions were well worth while. The sounds & sights of the jungle were amazing to experience. The two swims in ponds by the waterfalls were my highlights and we had plenty of time to rest and enjoy the experience at both stops. I would highly recommend this trip & thanks to Chen-including for the photos and videos he sent afterwards too.

        An amazing and rewarding experience. Our tour guide Chen ( along with the hunting dogs from the local native village) made us feel at ease and safe within the Malaysian jungle. Chen and his wife gave us an In-depth glimpse into Indigenous culture, Malaysian history and spiritual beliefs, as well as shared expert knowledge on local jungle animals, flora and fauna. The waterfall ( the cleanest water we have been in and the perfect temperature) at the top was well worth the 4.5 hour hike there and back. This experience is also not limited to the hike itself, with Chen and his wife also going above and beyond by providing pick up and drop off, allowing us to rehydrate and shower at their Airbnb, as well as introducing us to a whole day of drinks, traditional Malaysian breakfast, lunch and dinner foods.

        Would highly recommend and wish this company the best on its future venture.

        Until next time,

        Chelsea and Greg

        We have been all over the World over the years and done many things so when we say this is just about the best trip we have ever done hopefully explains how brilliant it was. If you are ever in Kuala Lumper, you really should meet Governor Chen.

        Not only was the trip into the Malayan jungle an amazing experience but the stories and information you get from Chen are another level of interesting. Ask Chen about the Pontianak he caught on camera and the famous story of the girl who disappeared - you will never forget it!

        Then there is the waterfall, worth all the effort to get to it. In the 8 hours of so we were in the Jungle, we passed two other people on the way back down, that's how remote it is.

        My sister and I had a wonderful experience visiting the beautiful scenery and waterfalls to be found on this trek. Chen is an excellent guide, we enjoyed yummy, authentic food and had lots of interesting chats with Chen and his partner Jules. We felt very at ease with them and learned lots about Malaysia whilst having a very exciting time in nature! Our highlight was getting to swim in the power of the waterfall, followed by a delicious nasi lemak eaten on the rocks. Highly recommended for anyone looking to get a flavour of authentic Malay cuisine, learn about the history and culture and connect with its jungles!

        The jungle tour with Chen was one of my highlights during my visit in Malaysia. Chen is a really nice tour guide, knows the jungle well and told us many interesting stories. Everything was well organized and we got a taste of different cuisines through our meals during the day. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who loves to see the jungle!

        It was a great great experience! Chen is a very friendly tour guide with a lot of experience and knowledge. The organisation of the trip was fluidly, and above all, the hike was amazing. It was so exciting to get the true feel of the jungle, so close to KL. The local breakfast, lunch and dinner was the cherry on top. Thank you Chen!

        What a trip!! Amazing !! , we did what we thought was similar in Thailand but it was quite touristy .
        When it says this is a jungle trek that's what it is . My husband and I are quite fit and it was ok for us . Amazing to be at one with nature . We barely saw any other people . Such a wonderful jungle experience the waterfall at the top making the 2 hr hike worth while. Chen was great, so knowledgable ..breakfast , lunch and diner were all great and very authentic . Can't recommend enough

        Wie all enjoyed the great and lovely tripp very much! Chen picked us up and we went to an exciting hill from were we had a great overview of the wonderful Jungle of Malaysia. Afterwards wie walked long a river to Beautiful waterfall were we could rest, swim and enjoy. The tracks were interesting and we saw a lot of the wilderness without feeling insecure with Chen on our side. The were no dangerous Or ugly animals and we had a great time.
        Also included were three meals at local restaurants. That was a great experience for us - that traditional and delicious food. And even European people can eat and digest it well.
        Always would do a trip with Chen again. Very very good!

        It was just unbelievable and amazing experience for me and my wife. We hiked through the rainforest, enjoyed by the nature and scenic views. The waterfall was spectacular as well. The only thing I would suggest - be ready for raining. Just because it’s Malaysia, and it’s a RAINforest. I recommend this tour, and Chen personally, - all was just fabulous and 11 of 10 (despite we were completely wet on the way back).

        Now I understand what rates a 5 star review. Chen the tour guide is also the owner, and is invested in you having a great experience. From when I initially contacted via the web to our drop off back at the hotel, he could not have been more courteous and attentive.

        Did the easy trek waterfall tour and laid back is a good description. Most of the time is spent relaxing at the falls with local picnic lunch. It was what I needed to kick back. Not the usual spend your time in a cramped tour bus and rush to get back to the tour bus. Tours are small and intimate.

        Highly recommended!
