2 DAY 1 NIGHT TAMAN NEGARA RAINFOREST TOUR
Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Genting, Cameron & Central States, Malaysia
I have been a tour guide for the past 20 years in Malaysia, and I have grown into being a tour operator. I now have a fleet of vehicles and a group of qualified English-speaking Chauffeur-Guides. Our guides are extremely friendly, courteous and willing to help. We strive for on-time deliveries, value-added tours and zero missed transfers. I believe in service excellence, and on-time delivery and customers, as well as major travel agents, are extremely happy with my services.
My hourly guiding services are for reference only as it depends on number of travellers, location type of vehicle etc. Do contact me or take a look at my tours for more information. We conduct a whole range of tours and also specialise in doing unique and localised tours. We are specialists in the Rainforest. I love the Taman Negara (130 million years old) and the Royal Belum and beyond. We can also customise the tours for you.
Knowing that tourists around the world over are caught in a time constraint web, I have concocted the following day tours out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Take a look at my tours for more information.
Thank you. Gladwin Pereira
