Normally doing all our trekking ourselves, we were initially unsure about whether or not we needed a guide, but after researching a bit more about the trek we realised it was a must.

After going through the trek, this was even more apparent! Ben is a fantastic guide, extremely friendly and informative. It felt just like trekking with our friends at home. He was sure to provide us with healthy snacks and great when pointing out where it was safe to climb, and where we should not go on the track.

He was happy for us to stop and admire the view, take photographs and we did not feel rushed at all. A wonderful experience to relax and enjoy the outdoors! The traditional breakfast afterwards was also delicious and a very welcome addition.

We would definitely recommend this company and Ben to anyone wanting to get out of KL city and experience the natural beauty of Malaysia without wanting to travel too far. Thanks Ben and Open Sky!

An absolutely amazing experience! Ben picked us up on time and took us to the trek. He was really prepared- gave us gloves for the trek, mosquito replant and even brought fruit with him to share which was so thoughtful! He was really knowledgeable about every step of the path and was considerate about our trekking pace. The views were absolutely incredible! Ben had great English and shared so much knowledge about Malaysia. He also has a great sense of humor and we had many laughs up and down the trek! He took us to a great breakfast place where the food was delciiousss. My favorite day in Malaysia! I really recommend this trek for anyone that wants to see beautiful scenery and challenge themselves physically along the trek with great company.

We booked the Dragon Back Trek because it had really excellent reviews and we had just a few days in KL and it is only 30 mins drive from the city. Our guide was Amos, he was fantastic. The hill occasionally was fairly steep and narrow and we needed to crawl on all fours. He made the tour very safe, he pointed out slippery stones and roots. I was affraid of insects, but surprisingly we had only a few mosquitoes and ants and Amos provided insect repellents. There were three peaks with different amazing views from KL and the jungle. It is a fantastic tour with delicious local food at the end. Great start for the day. Thank you Amos!!!

Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly the highlight of our trip to KL. For starters, Amos was a terrific guide, very friendly, knowledgeable and took great care of us, making sure to point out steep or narrow areas, ant hills, or anything that might be a danger. The trek itself was amazing, not too short or too long, and it was the perfect amount of challenging. We saw monkeys swinging in the trees on the way up, beautiful quartz pieces scattered along the way, and the best part... the views from the top! The city of KL to one side, and the Malaysian jungle to the other. It really was magical. Afterwards Amos took us to lunch at a local spot where we got to learn more about Malaysian cuisine and try some delicious foods we never would have thought to try. Thank you Amos for an amazing afternoon, one we will remember forever!

A friend suggested we do the dragon back trek whilst on our short trip to KL and it was absolutely worth it. 360° panoramic views of the beautiful forest, lake and city are simply mind blowing. Along with a couple of monkeys making an appearance.

The trek is followed by some brunch. The food is incredible and not to be missed!

Our guide Ben was incredibly friendly, helpful and kind. Happily taking photos and passing on interesting facts about this spectacular part of the world.

I cannot recommend this enough.

I had a wonderful morning hosted by trekking guide, Amos. The trek up the mountain was challenging in a fun and comfortable way. Beautiful views and Amos was kind enough to take pictures for me. After the trek, we visited a mamak (24 hour local restaurant) and had delicious breakfast. Highly recommend! Amos is a great hiking companion.

This was a highlight of our trip to KL for my girlfriend and I. The trek was great, views from the too were beautiful, the group we were with were a lot of fun, and Amos was a great guide. He was always attentive, making sure everyone was safe, ready to go on, and he was knowledgeable about any questions we had. The breakfast we had post-trek was delicious as well and Amos did a fantastic job, again, of explaining the different foods.

Definitely recommend trekking with Open Sky if you're ever in KL. If I make a trip back to KL, I'll definitely be doing the other hike they offer.

This was such an amazing experience. This is also perfect for someone who doesn't want to do the INTENSE hiking, yet still want something a little challenging, adventurous, and fun. The whole hike was about 2.5- 3 hours. Our tour guide, Amos was amazing. He was great with communication. He picked me up from my hotel at exactly the time he said he would. You do a lot of climbing, meaning you use all your hands and feet. Amos provided us with gloves so our hands don't get dirty. He also took pictures for us along the way. The views you get are absolutely gorgeous. Along the way Amos would explain different types of plants and the origins of certain places. Afterwards, we all went down and had a delicious brunch. You don't want to miss this. At one point of the hike, there is moment where you stand on the ridge. To your left you see the jungle, and to your right you see the city of Kuala Lumpur. It's breathtaking.

We had a really fantastic trip with Amos. He was really communicative ahead of the trek and picked us up on time before taking us for an epic walk. The views were unreal and the brunch after was really excellent. He also added on a trip to Batu Caves which was a good stop. Can't recommend the dragon's back trek enough - thanks again!

We booked this as we love hiking and the reviews were great! We are so happy we did! We had the best time hiking the Dragons back ridge and Amos our guide was simply wonderful.

The hike itself was picturesque, challenging in parts but with the help of Amos the whole group made it up to the third peak and the views were breathtaking. We managed some amazing photos and were so happy we could hike so close to the city along this brilliant track.

Escape the city vibe and take a morning out to join Amos on his tour, you wont be disappointed. Also breakfast after the hike was one of the nicest we have tried. Having a local to show us all the cool spots was such an invaluable experience! Thank you!
