    The tour started early in the day with a pick up that was perfectly on time (the driver was at our hotel lobby 5 minutes before the pickup time).
    This tour was booked the day previous in the midst of Chinese new year, so the tour company and driver did a great job considering the high season conditions.
    The ride to the highlands is long so we took a nap in the way.
    Our driver asked in which order we wanted to do the activities (suggesting a couple of routing options based on the locations of the stops).
    Due to the high season influx, the road traffic to one activity was slow and the driver mentioned that it may take 3 hours on the road to get to the activity (instead of the usual 10 minutes). The driver offered alternative options for the activity order and we decided together to change 1 activity for another in the city (the tour company approved an activity change but we had to pay part of the activity out of pocket as it the entry fees were higher than the original activities plan).
    The driver was professional all the tour and we enjoyed it a lot. The change of activity saved us from being stuck in traffic for hours and potentially missing other activities due to time constraints.
    Our tour included lunch and the driver asked our food preference and took us to a nice lunch place in our route.
    Overal great experience

    We had excellent pre-arrival communication and driver Herry was
    at our hotel at 7am for pick up. He was pleasant, safe driver and very responsive to our needs.
    Prepare for a long day. About 3 hours drive each way plus more if traffic is bad. First quick stop was the waterfall. Nice but not super impressive. Then our driver suggested we spend RM10 on snacks for the kids in a local indigenous village. This was a great stop and the kids were super appreciative.
    Cameron valley tea stop was busy but worth it. Purchase a ticket for the transport down into the valley. Good photos and nice to sit and have a cup of tea there.
    Next stop was lunch in the main town. Then we hit major traffic issues and were stuck so we abandoned going any further and headed back to KL. We stopped at a strawberry and bee farm on the way. It wasn’t great.
    So the summary is that we spent a lot of time in the car ( about 7 hours) and the driver was great but there’s just not really enough to see and do on this tour to make it worth the very long drive.

    We went to this tour on Sunday, 5th January 2020. Truthfully, we were not sure if the tour is possible, because we booked this trip the day before and after opening hours. We were surprised and happy to get a message with a confirmation and our pick-up time at the hotel. Our adventure could start.

    Our driver, Razuan, was wonderful! He picked us up very early in the morning and we visited all the places as the tour prospected. Without rush. We could take our time as long as we needed.
    During the trip we had a lot of questions and Razuan was very helpful to answer everything. He even showed us stuff outside from the tour. For example: we visited a village of nomads where they showed us how to use a bamboo pipe. It was amazing!
    As for lunch we could decide which food we prefered and at what time we wanted to eat.

    Now something which we didn't expect: the description promoted, that all entrance fees are included in the price. Which means the Batu Caves, Waterfall, Strawberry Farm, Butterfly Farm and Cameron Highlands, but actually there were no entrance fees at most of the stops. Only at the Butterfly Farm (10 MYR) and the Cameron Highlands - tea plantage - has been an entrance fee for 3 MYR (by foot) and 12 MYR for a shuttle buggy - which you have to pay yourself. So to sum it up, you mainly pay for the transfer, nevertheless we would recommend the tour.
