Full description
Kuala Selangor, a small town conquered by the Dutch in 1784, is most famous for its fireflies sanctuaries. It is said that this is one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. Another highlight is the delicious seafood in the most scenic location. It is located well off the normal tourist route and hence still maintains its traditional village atmosphere. This is your best bet for a long peaceful ride away from the busy city. In this tour, you will see the Bukit Melawati. This small peak was once a mighty fortress built to safeguard the state. The Altingburg Lighthouse continues to be the main attraction with an awesome view of the Straits of Malacca. You will also get the chance to meet the unique Silver Leaf Monkeys. The little baby monkeys are born with a golden color, which eventually turns black like the adults.

This was possibly one of my favourite trips of our holiday. We had the most entertaining and knowledgeable guide Abdul who gave us so much information as we travelled between the various places. He kindly provided me with a lovely sarong so I could visit the temple. There are 365 steps so wear sensible shoes and you have to have your knees covered. Watch out for the monkeys they will get into your bags, take drinks or food straight out of your hands. these guys are serious! We then went onto have dinner at the most amazing local seafood restaurant. Very rough and ready but what a meal. Hand on heart, best meal we had in Kuala Lumpur. After we had eaten our body weight in food and local beer we boarded a boat and headed out onto the water as the sun dipped. Very shortly we arrived at the marshy location where the fireflies reside. This was absolutley magical, the twinkly lights were so endearing, a very unique experience. KL Tours were professional and clearly very experienced.

We were a private group of 5 adults and Charlie was our driver. Everything was fantastic. We were a bit of a rowdy group but Charlie put up with us well and led the group very well - we all appreciated that. Our favourite part was meeting and feeding the friendly monkeys and the included dinner was also nice. Take plenty of insect repellant you will need it !

The tour is really nice! The Batu Caves are impressive and a must see, the lighthouse with the monkeys is also a nice bonus. I really liked the food and I also very much liked the place where the food was served, it was a very authentic restaurant right by the river with many locals, very busy and loud but that is part of the authentic experience. Without this tour I would have never gone to such a restaurant and would have missed out. The food was delicious! The best part is the boat trip with the fireflies. It's just magical to float through the water with an electric boat. So beautiful. My guide was very nice an knowledgeable, thank you Chandra!
