The driver had a great covered speed boat for 100 US dollars we sped up the river looking at the floating village which is huge and the mangroves.nthese contain small... More

After reading through the reviews on here we decided to call Mark and Wann to organise a trip around Kampung Ayer and the mangroves. We called them in the morning and they agreed to meet us at the jetty in the afternoon for a 2 hour trip. On arrival it was a relief that we could jump straight onto Mark... More

I had a great 2 and a half hours with Mark and Wann on their Water Village and Mangrove Forest tour, they use a covered boat and your given life jackets to wear. Their knowledge of the local area, culture and surrounding wide life is second to none. I will be returning to do a fishing trip with Captain Mark... More

If you have a boat driver that has not much experience you might just see the monkeys from pretty far up in the canopy. There are also other wildlife to see on the way, but some boatman are only concentrating on the monkeys. My advice is to agree, beforehand, on a price if you see monkeys and/or wildlife and are...

We headed to river, boarded a typical river boat which required precise balancing and zoomed down to the lovely Mangrove forests to see (fingers crossed) Proboscis Monkeys. The boat ride was fantastic, we cooled down from the increasingly oppressive heat and humidity, saw lush natural bushes, trees, and wildlife including a large family of Monkeys. This was certainly a highlight... More

I was fortunate enough to learn of Mark and Wann from this website. A quick email was sent their way and prompt replies were received answering all my questions. Their price was reasonable and I booked a day trip with them. The service I received from Mark and Wann was top notch. The tour was customized based on my needs... More

We spend an afternoon doing this trip and it was nice. We were not so lucky with the proboscis monkeys though, there were not much in sight during our visit but plenty of other wildlife species to see. The boat driver was knowledgeable and he took us inside the mangrove forest. It was so nice to breathe in the clean... More

We took two tours with Mark and Wann, one to the Islands and the next day on an evening safari tour. Mark has a wonderful eye for spotting animals and is determined to get you the best view for photos, a snack was included on both trips. Wann gives lots of information and history and they are both great guides.... More

We've done a river cruise with Mark and Wann. They are a really friendly couple who make the best out of your trip. We came especially for the proboscis monkey and we've seen many. They just know where to find them. It was amazing. We've seen all the things we wished for. Even the small animals which we never would... More

Well worth a morning or afternoon. A good boat driver will help you find monkeys, crocodiles and monitor lizards. The mangroves are an amazing sight.
