When we got started on the journey I could tell that they enjoy their job, it helped me enjoy it even more. They have sharp eyes that can detect any animal big or small. It seems... read more

When we got started on the journey I could tell that they enjoy their job, it helped me enjoy it even more. They have sharp eyes that can detect any animal big or small. It seems like they know every type of animal you could see there. Mark made it look like maneuvering the boat was super easy. It started... More

We stumbled upon Mark and Wann while we were randomly walking around the water village. They were friendly and sat us down where they live. They had rescued some baby otters who were orphaned and were feeding them. They were caged but were allowed to run around free from time to time, but would always return. We booked the night...

Great fun going up the river looking for proboscis monkeys. At first we could not find, but then they came down in packs and it was really interesting. The boat trip is most enjoyable and it was also interesting seeing the water village. This really is a must do on your trip to this fine city. Take some water with... More

Fantastic 2 hours out on the river, seeing snakes, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, lizards, palaces, homes on stilts and much more! Through trip advisor recommendations we emailed Mark & Wann and booked for the next day at 2.00. (4.00 would have been a better time but we had a flight to catch). They were prompt to reply & accommodate us. Very... More

On the way to see the Proboscis monkeys the tour takes you past the river village, very interesting that this community has been here for several hundred years and the families would not live anywhere else. The day of my visit it happened to be high tide and the monkeys had retreated up the mangrove trees due to their fear... More

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...
