We are very happy and proud that TripAdvisor has recognised our company again with a 2013 Certificate of Excellence. This prestigious award places us in the top-performing 10% of all businesses worldwide on TripAdvisor and is given to businesses that consistently earn high ratings from TripAdvisor travellers.
Welcome to the Year of the Snake and wishing all our friends and guests a Happy Chinese New Year!
Nature is an ongoing interesting phenomenon and there is always something going on, even though you would follow the same trail or do the same trip every day. Migratory birds, unexpected sightings of animals in certain areas, nesting birds, and newborn monkey babies are some of them and there is so much more.
With immediate effect (1 December 2012 ) we will allow single travellers to make a booking without putting them on the waiting list pending other confirmed bookings.
This will be valid for our mangrove boat trip, mangrove kayak trip, jungle trek or jungle trek/ evening walk (all daily run) and nature cycling trip (subject to guide availability). This will not be valid for our bird watching and untold stories trips.
Join one of our trips and you will be happy to meet some new friends!
We are very proud to have received again the Certificate of Excellence for the year of 2012 from Tripadvisor with a 5-star rating; thanks to all for your continuous support!
We also just received review number 500 on Tripadvisor and we are extremely proud that so many guests (98.8%) are rating our trips and service as excellent and very good. Thanks to all our guests who are taking the effort to write a review, which is highly appreciated! Some flashes and parts of reviews of the last months:
‘We loved every tour and the guides Jerome and Kieran were not only knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the local area but also passionate about conservation.’
‘We did the mangrove kayak tour with Mandy. She was both inspirational and informative about the local ecology and flora and fauna.’
‘"Selva", the guide was very knowledge and being a environmentalist- brought passion in his informative talks during the trip’
‘My target bird for the day was Orange breasted Trogon, and the guide, Shah, heard one calling and we had fantastic views for about 10 minutes of a calling bird at close range.’
‘Dev's adventure tours use guides who really know their stuff.’
‘Overall, I would recommend Dev's Adventure Tours to anyone. The guides are passionate about wildlife, nature and the environment and know their stuff about the animals and plants on Langkawi, and they are keen to make sure that you get the most possible out of the experience.’
A BIG, BIG THANK YOU TO THE TEAM MEMBERS FOR ALL THE GREAT WORK, FOR THE DEDICATION TO THE COMPANY AND FOR PROMOTING THE NATURAL PART OF LANGKAWI IN AN EXCELLENT WAY; ALL OF YOU ARE TOPPERS!! THANKS!
June 2012 – LAST COLUMN
Time is flying and years are passing like weeks. The world around us is changing and it is hard to get by with all the changes and innovations. All kind of social networks are daily (if not hourly) business for many people and therefore I have decided that this column will be the last.
We could not have wished for a better start of the year 2012; we had the highest numbers of guests within 1 month ever and all guides were doing many extra trips to fulfil all the requests. We even had to refuse some guests with last minute bookings as we were simply fully booked on many days. Although we would be able to get more business by taking more guests we will always stick to the rules and to our own principles and we have our maximum number per trip to secure the service and quality level our guests are used to.
