    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.

    Tour was amazing packed so much in to one day. Our tour guide was very considerate of what we wanted and altered the tour to suit our needs, really went over and beyond! Rajan, our tour guide, always went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. Great knowledge, photography skills and a lovely warm, friendly man who made us feel safe due to his relationships with the locals and the aborigines also. Would highly recommend this as a tour, we’ll definitely be going through this company again for any future tours in the area.

    This is not a “tour”, simply an agency organising a driver as there was no information provided about the places visited.

    Our advice is to take a few GRABS/taxis on your first few days in KL and find a car/driver you like to get a direct quote. This will ensure that the “tour” doesn’t get a big cut, you’re comfortable with the car and driver.

    Reasons for one star

    - Car tyre broke in the middle of the highway : my family was stuck in the middle of the highway for nearly two hours at night on a rainy day. Did not receive an apology from the driver or any estimation of wait time. We had five people on a 12 persons van yet the quality tyres were as thin as a motorcycles (attached photo)

    - Dirty car : we saw a few cockroaches on the car and the driver had a smoke next to the car every two hours or every pit stop

    - Overpriced : Cheaper to get direct quote from driver and not through tour agent. As this is NOT a tour, agent simply organised a driver

    - Unorganised & NOT on time - our driver did not arrive on time and when calling the tour agent they were not aware of this (I.e driver and agent have poor communication between them). We waited for an HOUR bf the driver arrived. Reason provided was “stuck in traffic” but traffic was like a normal workday in KL and nothing unexpected had happened

    - Unprofessional : We contacted the tour agent when we were stuck in the middle of the highway. The apology did not come straight away, it only came when the “is there any compensation offered for being stuck as we will be arriving at 10pm instead of 7:30pm” was asked. The agent kept pushing away with excuses such as “call when you r back to the hotel” or “I need to ask my higher up”. I’ve called at least 3 times now with the last response being “I will be give you a call tomorrow afternoon after speaking to my higher up”.
    We never received any call back.

    Reasons to go Cameron highland-
    - boh tea plantation: worth the drive as very pretty and organised area.

    Our recommendation is to NOT join this tour - as my family did not feel safe during this trip and felt that it was very unorganised. Cameron highlands is a beautiful place that can be visited through directly getting a quote with a driver and car you like :)
