We absolutely loved this tour! We were a family of 5 with 2 teens and a child and couldn't fault this. We didn't expect anything 5* because it's not a tourist hotspot like KL. You're paying more for the experience of the fireflies. When we arrived, we could pay extra money to see eagle feeding before sunset which we also... More

We visited the park to do the firefly tour and really enjoyed it. It was easy to find and wasn't very busy, got there around 8pm. The tour itself is a peaceful journey up and down the river to watch the fireflies in the bushes. Pretty reasonable for 16MYR. If you are in K. Selangor it is defunatly worth a... More

I went to Kuala Lumpur to attend friends wedding. My sister and i decided that we wanted to see the firefly since we had never seen one. We decided to book a private day tour with Steven Sekhar (http://stevensekhar.weebly.com or you can google his name). The day tour itself was very nice. Steven was really professional and knowledgeable. The firefly... More

This excursion sounds delightful in the “Sightseeing from Kuala Lumpur” pamphlet. In the quiet hamlet of Kampong Kuantan is one of the largest firefly colonies in the world. Described as an amazing phenomenon, the excursion includes a local seafood dinner. What you do not know and what is not explained is that this excursion involves a four hour bus ride... More

Don't forget your mosquito repellent! The fireflies are enchanting. Make sure to take the paddle boat ride as the motor boats scare the fireflies off. The people had lifejackets for everyone and the men paddling the boats were competent.

Don't do it... *This was the most irritating gimmick, I've ever paid for. *This was the most irritating thing, I've ever sat still for. For the price they're charging... I felt ripped off; and I resented the operators for that. I'd rather watch the phenomenon on National Geographic, on a 3D widescreen. It's more cost effective (and a greater thrill)... More

This is a great experience. All the trees just look like Xmas trees. That's very impressive. And charming. But you must make sure you do it by night.

Its an experience to go on a boat and just maneuver around slow and calmly and then watch fireflies all around on trees and and the mangroves! Its brilliant experience if you go out with kids or as a couple. Lovely view! No Flash allowed for photos :)
