We had limited time on the island (one full day) and wanted to make the most of it. We booked the nature cycling in the morning, and "untold stories" in the afternoon/evening.
The Nature Cycling wasa relaxing four hour bike ride through mostly smaller side roads. About 90% paves, and around 90% with very little traffic (you are on a man road briefly a few times). You cycle about 20 km, with numerous stops including one for roti canai (Indian snack, aka roti prata), one for fresh fruit at a market and many stops to learn about the flora and fauna. Our guide (very sorry we can't remember her name right now!!) was excellent. It was part bird watching, part agricultural tour. You come away with a great appreciation for every plant you see on the island. Also a great way to see how most people live on the island, outside the main beach strips where most hotels and restaurants are.
"Untold Stories", guided by Selva, is an incredible unique experience that I can't imagine working without Selva. He has so much enthusiasm and knowledge about history, architecture, horticulture. The tour was very long, and he took us to several stops to see original traditional style houses. The night market was also a treat, giving us a taste of some Malaysian snacks. The highlight though was going to his house, where is wife prepared an amazing southern Indian meal. They were very welcoming and it was great to be invited into a home to talk with real Malaysians.
Both were great experiences, and if we had more time we would have booked even more trips with Dev's. Great company highlighted by amazing guides.
