    Langkawi Taxi Service in Cenang, Langkawi is a good and reliable service, although they do not have taximeters, but fixed rates between places, have taxis for 4 passengers, 6 & 8 seaters (plus 50% to 100% on price), while the taxi-drivers normally are helpful, polite and non alcohol-drinkers (muslims) and not all of them speak good understandable English. Normally you don’t need a taxi to go around Cenang beach area and the longest drive in Langkawi is about 40 min (is 25 Km from North to South).
    We have taken (1) a taxi from the airport to our hotel in Cenang Beach in Langkawi (and the opposite), (2) from Cenang Township to Kuah (capital of the island) and retour, as well as a taxi (3) to go around the island [(about 4-5 hours), e.g. 7 wells waterfalls, Black Sand beach, Cable Car, Crocodile farm, white beach, etc.]. For the last two trips we have used a taxi (8 seater van) with a very good taxi-driver (named Hamid bin Ngah), who was reliable, entertaining and polite. The prices were fixed and this was good in avoiding (in the majority of cases) any possible dispute (although a little bargaining could be done).
    In order to go around we have used taxis from the two taxi stands on Jalan Pantai Chenang (a) one almost opposite the Cenang Mall and (b) the other outside the Langkawi Aquarium (Underwater World Langkawi), where they have the tables with the fixed prices for all possible taxi routes in the island of Langkawi.
    Summing up we found the Langkawi Taxi Service reliable, we had good taxi-drivers and we cannot hesitate to suggest them.

    Hanif was our guy throughout our Langkawi trip. He was absolutely brilliant. Super knowledgeable about the islands. Incredibly professional. Very sweet with both my elderly mother and my teenage daughters. And super reasonable prices.

    I messaged him on WhatsApp before arriving in Langkawi and he was at the airport waiting for us. Drove us all around the island whenever we needed it. And then took us back to the airport at the end of the trip.

    We pre-booked two half day excursions with GC Butler, our guide was Nor GC.
    He was helpful, experienced, fun, professional and overall very easy-going. If you want to have a worry free excursion, book through GC Butler. They will arrange everything for you, pick you up from where you are staying, drop you off after you are done, stay with you throughout the day, giving lots of useful information, tips and taking photos and videos all the time.
    Nor later shared all the photos with us and I was surprised of the amount. Many photos were taken without us even noticing, which made them even more authentic and spontaneous.
    Thank you Nor for two wonderful trips.

    We had one of the best days of our holiday with langkawitaxiservice.com. I booked early for our group of 7 people visiting the island for one day from a cruise.
    Firstly it was easy to make the arrangements from the UK by email (langkawitaxi@yahoo.com) and questions were quickly answered. When we arrived we were met on time by the driver/owner who was lovely and informative.
    We started with a 3 hour island hop which we all loved. We fed eagles and visited beaches and reserves. The boat trip was fast and exillerating - be prepared for a bumpy but fun ride!
    We next went to the Skybridge, the entry was not included in the price, but as the trip was so reasonable per person it was not a problem at all. We had a fantastic gondola ride over the rain forest and walked along the Skybridge. My advice would be to buy a ticket that includes the transport from the gondola to the actual sky bridge, it is quite a hike in the steamy climate.
    We followed this by visits to Eagle Square, some waterfalls and finally to Kuah for duty free shopping.
    In Kuah some of our group were gasping for a beer, can I recommend a small cafe called Dominos. We had beers and a wonderful tuna sandwich which was tastier than any food on the cruise ship! We were the only people in the cafe and the owner and his wife were lovely.
    We were taken back to the ship on time and safely by our driver.
    Highly recommended by all our group who were a mixed group from Australia, UK and New Zealand.

    The so called " tour guides " were rowdy and loud. They were blasting musics, singing loudly and shouting at each other most of the time, like a bunch of drunkards, entertaining themselves throughout.

    Other than the 2 to 3 hours of actual snorkeling (this timing includes the lunch break), they rest of the time was spent on traveling and countless waiting. That's the so called "Full Day Tour-Payar Island Beach by XQ Holiday" a total of 9 hours itinerary.

    Now you decide for yourself, should you give this tour a MISS!!

    The Sea Eagle is the symbol of the Langkawi Island bird.
    You will see many Sea Eagles flying around over the Forest and ocean. They are a lot bigger than the Red Kites we have in the UK
