Your friendly guide and professional driver will meet you at your hotel for this Kuala Selangor Tour from Kuala Lumpur with fireflies boat ride and seafood dinner. Travel by bus northeast of the city to Kuala Selangor. Once the royal capital of the state and home to Kampung Kuantan, this destination is home to one of the world’s largest firefly colonies.

Upon arrival, make your way to Kota Melawati near the mouth of the Selangor River. Venture into the ruins of this ancient fort with your guide and learn about the cannons and other remnants from the 1900s. You’ll also tour the Royal Mausoleum where graves of the first three Sultans of Selangor are buried. Climb the 100 stairs to the top of Selangor Hill and learn about the much-storied execution block.

After that, head to Kuala Selangor Nature Park and gaze up at migratory birds. Keep your eyes peeled for silver-leaf monkeys, rare butterflies and indigenous birds. As the sun sets you’ll head to a nearby fishing village for a typical seafood dinner before making your way to Kampung Kuantan. Set sail on a Malaysian rowboat and take in the quiet beauty that surrounds you as your oarsman rows upstream through picturesque mangroves. Once darkness falls you’ll bear witness to thousands of sparkling fireflies. Your magical boat ride will last between 30 and 45 minutes. Upon completion you’ll head to shore and make your way back to your Kuala Lumpur hotel in the comfort of your air-conditioned vehicle.

Outstanding. Everything we expected and more.

Firstly, we had an excellent driver who was really friendly and knowledgeable about many things. We really enjoyed travelling with him. All parts of the trip were fabulous from walking along the mango swamps to seeing the fireflies. The boatman placed a firefly in my wife's hand and she was delighted. We really could not recommend this trip more, or this driver, or this company. From the pick up to the drop off, it was fabulous.

The driver was on time to collect us at the hotel. The drive from KL to the Fireflies is very long at least one hour, it was a bit boring as we were on the motorway. The dinner was interesting. The Fireflies were beautiful.

BK our guide picked us up on time from the hotel in a small air conditioned van and kept us entertained and informed with facts and knowledge about KL, Malaysia and surrounding countries. First stop was an Indian temple which was very impressive craftmanship, then to the monkeys on the hill which was the best part, they were so numerous, docile, friendly and climbing up on our heads. There was also a nice view from the hill. After that we went for the tasty seafood dinner by a river and then continued on to the fireflies. We had to queue about 40 minutes for the sun to set and get on the boat as expected but we saw many twinkling xmas tree like bushes which was a great experience. The whole day was nice, but it was made fantastic by the tour guide BK, highly recommend him!

The fireflies boat tour only went for about twenty minutes would have been good if it was longer. Dinner was poor, certainly not a buffet more like four dishes put on the table which you could select from. Compared to the large menu items at the restaurant youre given whats clearly the cheapest options designed to feed the most for the least dollars. For the price paid for the tour was definitely expecting more for dinner

This tour was also great. The guide was friendly and very accommodating. The only think I would change is the bush walk due to the amount of mosquitoes.

The dinner was meh. Our guide who we had before was a bit rude and wanted to up sell the group on everything. I've been to Asia several times now and I get this is part of the business that tours and shops run together, but this guy put SO much pressure on us to purchase other stuff that it ruined the experience. The fireflies and boat was pretty, but I wish we had just taken an uber.
