“A Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We've done the Mangrove Boat Tour with our nine year old son. Our guide Jerome gave us excellent insight in the local eco-system in a wonderful interactive way. His passionate sharing of his extensive knowledge was very inspiring, and so was his great sense of humour.
We've enjoyed it thoroughly, our son found it awesome!
The restaurant-lunch at the end of the tour could have been skipped in our opinion ( the toilets in the restaurant are not for the faint hearted ), the boat trip and the walk through the stunning bat cave were what we came for, and bottles of water were provided for on the boat anyway.
We highly recommend the tour!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Myself and partner did the Kayak tour with Dev's adventure tours. Despite being our first ever experience on a kayak, we found it to be very comfortable and enjoyable. Our Guide Mandy was very well informed about the mangroves, and had a whole lot of information on the nature and wildlife around the island. The kayaking experience itself was fun, and not very tiring. However we were unlucky not to spot much wildlife. All we could see was a few monkeys and a monitor lizard. A trip to the bat caves was also included which too was good. Lunch was very basic, at the hole in the wall restaurant. Overall, we had a good experience. However, i felt the trip could have a little more longer, cos we felt the kayaking got over soon :)

“Wonderful Mangrove cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful Mangrove cruise with our guide Jerome. His passion and caring for the environment was very much appreciated. The visit to the bat cave, trip through the mangroves, over to the eagle-feeding was all very informative and interesting and offered stunning views you cannot get from the car or a large boat. We highly recommend this tour, and Jerome individually.

“Mangrove Boat Trip & Jungle Trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the evening jungle trek and following day's mangrove boat day trip. The guides were excellent and passionate about educating tourists on the importance of the ecosystem. It was great to still see a healthy number of wildlife on the island. Will definitely be keen to do more tours with Dev's AT. Keep it up, Dev!

“Birdwatching with Dev's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

On Langkawi for the 8th time; we know the island well and have seen nearly everything, so feel we don't often need a guide. We like birdwatching without being totally twitcher and this led us to contact Dev's AT, one of 2 firms we found to offer this. Dev's offered to show us rainforest birds (up Gunung Raya) and wetland birds in a single 5-hour trip and this suited us well. The guide Shah was excellent, not only because he knew where to find/see species like hornbill, but also because he could explain their habitat and breeding behaviour - about which we knew nothing. They offer bins and bring a monoscope (great). It also helps that he will bring Craig Robson's "Birds of South East Asia" so you can see photos of similar species on the spot. No hesitation in recommending this trip
