Nice trip, nice guide - pleasant in communication plus good driver. We enjoyed the trip especially tea plantation, but maybe it’s still a bit overpriced (we were in 3 people, so some discount if there’re several people would be great). I believe you can save some money by organizing everything by yourself but we were too lazy to do that, so this trip is good option if you don’t wanna stress out about anything and have limited time for staying in Malaysia

Fabulous. The highlight of the trip is the tea plantation, but the strawberry pickup and the lunch at the gorgeous golf course resort were great as well. The driver did a great safe job, while the guide staged the trip fantastically. 12 hrs sharp and we were back at the hotel.

Super interesting, the tea plantation panorama is really gigantic. The guide had a lot of information ready and really took his time, even beyond the agreed 12 hours.

Our guide was amazing, he showed us beautiful places, gave us many interesting information and was super nice! It was great trip full of fun!

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was really knowledgeable and engaging
