Our guide Robin is very knowledgeable and we had a fun time learning from him. The boat ride was enjoyable too.

Great tour! The Kampong was really fun to explore... rich in history and lots of interesting plants. Our guide, Kyanta Yap was very professional and knowledgeable. He catered to our interests and kept it very engaging for my 10 year old. Highly recommend the experience, particularly since the Kampong is on private land and we would not have been able to access such a meaningful experience there otherwise.
