  • Nurulaini 30 Dec 2018
    We were picked up at the Hotel at 4pm and were brought to a restaurant abt 40mins away and out of the Resorts area. The restaurant name was a kelong restaurant called Ballond Alim. It was a decent spread and we both got a fresh crab each. Drove back into the Resorts area at 6.15pm and arrived at Bintan Mangrove just before 7pm. The tour lasted 30mins; Junjung the guide, managed to scoop a few fireflies for us to touch. There were 4 of us (passengers) on the Boat. I would go for the experience but think that it is not worth the money paid esp when there were 3 other kelong restaurants along the river.

    went for the night trip. quite an experience with the fireflies.

    Better than I expected it to be. Dinner at the kelong was so fun and the view was great! Food was pretty good too. Fireflies ride out was such an adventure, the nicest tour guide and the nicest ppl in Bintan. Definitely recommend this to all.
  • Nadesha Prabhu 15 Dec 2018
    Very good and unique experience.. speed motor boat ride in pitch dark river forest and see the glowing flies.. We loved it!
  • Dawn 11 Dec 2018
    This is our first time looking at fireflies. Guide and boatman were very kind to go near the mangrove, so that we could even catch them. It was a very fun experience for both adults and children!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our mangrove tour as we learnt about the different types of mangroves. The tour guide is extremely friendly and patient in explaining to us whenever we have doubts. His effort in trying to communicate with us in English is commendable. He is also very helpful whenever we request for pictures to be taken. The driver is also very nice as he stops for us when we want to take pictures at a particular place. Overall, a good experience. Recommended with KLOOK as it’s cheaper, and the fact that there’s a 2 way transport to and fro our resort.

    Selected dinner option with the mangrove tour. Our driver was friendly and took us to a river side restaurant outside Bintan Resorts. Able to have a glimpse of the real Bintan. The restaurant was empty and we get to enjoy the quiet and private dinner with the full view of the river. Satisfied with the food there and we got 1 crab each. Our driver drove us to some shops before heading to the mangrove tour, and we were able to buy kueh lapis there. The mangrove tour was actually 'fireflies' tour, as there was only fire flies to see at night. The 2 of us got the boat all by ourselves, with 1 tourguide and 2 boatmen with us. We felt like VIPs on the boat. The boatmen drove us through the mangrove river, and will approach the branches alongside the river when we saw blinking lights indicating the presence of fireflies. The tourguide will try to scoop the fireflies into a plastic cup and pass it to us. At the end of the boat ride he told us to throw the cup into the river. We were unwilling to do it but he said that there'll be cleaners to clean up the river in the morning.

    The fireflies tour was amazing, the sky was full of stars and we saw loads of fireflies on the way. The pick-up driver was horrible, he even tried to drop us off to a hawker center so that we would buy stuff in shops near there. And he told us to "just take a taxi back to your hotel from here". Luckily we asked the fireflies tour guide to solve it, but still it would have been an otherwise perfect trip without that crazy pickup driver.
