Hi there,
my name is Mat and I have been trekking the Malaysian jungle together with the Orang Asli (the indigenous people of Malaysia) for the last 8 years.

I am originately from France but I have settled in Malaysia and married a Malaysian girl. I can speak Malay fluently.

Ask the locals and they will tell you that I know the country better than them!

From a night in a cave, a dip in a local waterfall, a bite at some quirky food (buffalo's penis soup, monitor lizard, snake and more) to cultural insights, survival tips and information about the fruits, animals and plants of the jungle, you can be sure that you will learn a lot more about the country than you would expect from a foreigner ;)

Mat was a wonderful tour guide and very easy to talk to. Needless to say, this was one of our most favourite experiences in KL. We really enjoyed feeding the monkeys and having them climb on us, and when Mat said best seafood in in the country, man did he mean it. The firefly boat tour was a unique end to a beautiful day as it was so serene seeing them glow around you in the dark as the boat calmly rowed in the water. We would 100% do this tour again!

This is definitely a must-try if you love elephants! It was a very hands-on experience and we loved every second of it! Mat was a great tour guide in bringing us clean towels for showering afterwards and getting us to where we needed to be at the right times to get the best views and least amount of waiting times. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

We couldn't have asked for a better tour or guide. Mat is an incredibly knowledgable guide and is incredibly passionate about Malaysia. We had a blast on our hike to the waterfall but we also learned so much about the history, culture and nature of Malaysia. I highly recommend Mat.

This Broga hill trip was very good because Mat brought water, headlights and energy bar for our group and we were very excited to be able to make it to the top to see the sunrise. Though the sun was a bit shy today :) there is even a surau at the front before the hike. Altogether it was an awesome climb. :D

The food marathon was brilliant! Mat was so knowledgeable about the food and culture of KL that it made the experience that much more enjoyable. If you love to eat (and you will be eating!) and love food in general then I cannot recommend this tour highly enough
