Dev's is definitely the company to go with when it comes to a Mangrove tour. They have the environmental bigger picture in mind.

Our guide, Shoot was very interested in what she did and all her clients. We saw some great wildlife including two vipers.

The day was topped off by a good lunch, all included.

Dev"s Mangrove Tour: The tour guide, Jerome, was brilliant. He was very knowledgable about the mangrove ecology and preservation. I would recommend the trip to anyone who enjoys seeing nature first hand. The kayaks were very stable and using them meant that we could explore the mangroves away from the constant stream of tourist motor boats in the area. The age preferably is age 10 and over.

I accidentally left my sandals behind at the restaurant and Jerome was kind enough to retrieve them and bring them to our hotel the following day.

We booked at short notice and were so glad we did. Minibus picked up promptly and we were met by our lovely guide. The experience of the mangroves, snakes, bats, eagles, birds, lunch, beach and fish farm were fascinating. Loved it. A must do whilst on Langkawi.

A picture without meaning is just a picture. Scenery without a story is just scenery. This is where Dev’s Adventure Tours is different from other tour operators. Our guide, Jerome, is a Naturalist who provided us with a scientific background of cave formations, bat biology, mangrove ecology and raptor behaviours. All this we expected, but there were many anecdotes and “insider” information that we found interesting such as – what perfumes do the macaques dislike? How did Langkawi get its name? Why did the Brahminy Kites move away from the airport area? These cannot be found in books or the internet. The history of the Langkawi mangroves had a huge impact on me.
Our was a company trip (2 children and professional/non-professional adults) and the guide kept us safe and entertained throughout the mangrove boat tour. He pointed out many animals: a viper, a baby python, many birds, an owl sleeping in a tree and a macaque feeding its baby, amongst others. We would definitely have missed them if we were to go without a guide. I would say that having a guide increased the value of the tour more than ten-fold. The fish farm we visited was interesting. The set lunch was basic but adequate.
My 5-year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed the tour; it has provided real-life science and eco-biology for her. On my next trip, I plan to take her on the guided kayaking tour.
The organiser is efficient, punctual and helpful and informative with the pre-tour preparations. What the website advertises- it delivers.
