Kinabatangan River Tour
We are home now, thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. You have a very beautiful country! Your tour was excellent and we would highly recommend to all our friends and family. Our guide Ken (Kenneth A.tizon) was exceptional. We really enjoyed his company and fun sense of humor, Ken was very knowledgeable and made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We will definitely be back again one day, still so much to see and do, we will have you in our mind for the next trip. Thank you very much Imelda and Ken.
Sepilok, Turtle Island and Kinabatangan
Everything was superbly arranged. From pick-up at the airport, the Sepilok, Turtle Island and Kinabatangan and airport drop off. Me and my children had a great time and saw loads of animals and packed so much into our stay in Borneo. Hope to return there soon.
Selingan (Turtle) Island
We highly recommend Selingan (Turtle) Island it is an experience of a lifetime!! The island itself is pristine and the conservation efforts and passion of the staff in protecting these awesome creatures is absolutely inspiring! We adore turtles so it was an incredibly special experience for us to be up close and personal with a huge female witnessing the beauty of nature of her laying her eggs. That alone is the highlight of the tour but to top it off you also get to see hatchlings being born and then get to see them released into the sea! Truly an unforgettable and heartwarming experience! Also a huge thank you to Terrence, our tour guide, (while we were waiting for the turtles to come ashore the other people who came with separate tour companies were all sitting alone) but Terrence sat with us and was a wealth of information on the Turtles as well as the conservation efforts they have in place to protect them. We learnt so much from him and truly appreciated his passion for these majestic creatures. Highly recommend Borneo Sandakan Tours!
A holiday in Borneo
We have recently arrived back from a holiday in Borneo. I do a lot of travelling and rarely feel motivated to give written feedback, however I would like to give some feedback on the guide we had in Sandakan. His name is Terance Bin Bukarak T Guide 5409 Green. He was fantastic. I have travelled through Asia quite a bit and use guides regularly, but he was a stand out. Not only was his knowledge outstanding, he was personable, friendly and went over and above what he had to, to make our tour as enjoyable as he possibly could. Fellow travellers we met along the way commented on our guide being exceptional. We left feeling we had gained a friend. He is an asset to the company he works for, and we wish him well in the future.
3 Days 2 Nights River Tour
I just wanted to say thank you Sandakan Borneo Tours for organising such a great trip. I wrote a glowing review on Trip adviser. Do take a look at it. Rey, our guide, was excellent. He was very organised, patient and knowledgeable. Our driver, Mr Armini, was also great too. The staff at the lodge were also very helpful and lovely. We saw some amazing animals and really enjoyed the river cruises, jungle walk - the whole programme really. The trip was well paced. We saw orangutans from the balcony of our lodge was really special. We also saw big crocs and little crocs and I was amazed to get such a good view of birds at night time. I can see Sepilok has changed a lot since we visited many years ago. It was so much more crowded than when I remembered it. The nursery was a new experience for us. Gary spotted me at Sepilok and said hello which was lovely. My daughter has a fantastic time too. Thanks once again. I will recommend. Best wishes, Bev
