I cannot praise Borneo Sandakan Tours enough! As experienced travellers, we know a good guide when we find them… One who has all the tips and tricks for getting the most out of an experience rather than one who just drags you around tourist site after tourist site. Borneo Sandakan Tours gave us the individual attention we wanted, the custom made itinerary our travel dates demanded and the experiences we dreamed of. Nothing was a problem and if it couldn’t be done, there was an excellent reason why. I cannot recommend these guys enough – they absolutely know how to show you the best Borneo has to offer!!!
18 family and friends tour of Sandakan
We were a group of 18 people, ranging in ages from 69 to 2. We spent three days in Sandakan and booked Borneo Sandakan Tours to drive us to and from a variety of tourist sites around Sandakan. Our tour guide was Gaz and he was fantastic. He had an excellent knowledge of the area and offered great advice when putting the itinerary together. He was flexible with our needs as we had older and younger travellers. We saw many of the most popular sites and it was made very easy for us as Gaz organised all the tickets. We had a great bus that drove us around, and a good driver, Captain Buck, who navigated some of the more difficult roads very carefully. Our group were very pleased with the tour and we were happy with the price. I am happy to recommend Borneo Sandakan Tours to anyone looking at organising a big group to tour the Sandakan area. Thanks.
Me and my wife both booked via Borneo Sandakan Tours as part of our honeymoon. Imelda was very quick to help with the forms. Upon arrival, our guide and friend was Gary. He was reliable, on point and filled with knowledge. It was such an adventure, especially the river cruise! Thank you to the team!
Borneo Sandakan Tours gave me a very nice experience, they basically custom made me a 2 day tour and upgraded my room because one of my activities couldn’t go through due to the weather. The backpackers hostel has very good service (they make you breakfast) and staff is very friendly. I would definitely recommend Borneo Sandakan Tours.
I thank you for the perfectly prepared expedition to Bilit and Kinabatangan river – was great! Our tour guide Faizhar was fantastic! Greetings from Poland!
Gary was an excellent tour guide. He had detailed answers to all our questions and an extensive knowledge of the area. We were lucky enough to see Pygmy Elephants, which is a fairly rare occurrence.
Couldn’t have been better than this. Absolute perfection 🙂
We just wanted to say how impressed we were with Borneo Sandakan Tours. As for the day tours, we had a great time with the sightseeing as the tour guide – Arthur Lau was extremely informative, funny, helpful, friendly and his knowledge of Sabah/ Sandakan’s history was exceptional. The food was excellent as we had a very good time enjoying the local seafood delicacies which are fresh and tasty. The venues were all clean and welcoming. The breakfasts were ample for our needs and they were well located. We are very appreciative to Rasdini for being so accommodative in our package and planning changes. Excellent service. You make this trip very easy and enjoyable. A BIG THANKS to Jonathan & Gary for planning an amazing itinerary. Everything was all well-organized. Arthur Lau and driver were very professional. Our experience with your company was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Looking forward to see you guys again later this year.
Experience in Borneo
We really enjoyed this experience in Borneo. Your service was simply perfect. Our guide and driver helped us make this trip memorable. I think your company it’s highly recommended! Thanks again for all!
Turtle Island 8th October
Hi Gary, How are you? Just wanted to say a big thank you from us for the great tour of turtle island. We had a fantastic time. Also I remember you saying you had a picture of me releasing the turtles, would you be able to send it? We also had a great time on the rest of the trip with Phyzal (really not sure how to spell his name). We don’t have contact details for him, but if you wouldn’t mind could you ask him what the Chinese thing we ate at the rainforest cafe was, we would really like to know? And in case he wants a copy I have attached the selfie he took. Hope all is well with you and the turtles. Thanks again!
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.
The service was extremely appreciated. Great accommodation and very helpful guides. I suggest everyone to utilize the services offered by Borneo Sandakan Tours.
Outstanding Tour Operator
I highly recommend Borneo Sandakan Tours. Everything from beginning to end was very professional and thorough. Rasdini was so kind and helpful. I feel quite fortunate to have found him and Borneo Sandakan Tours. Planning and arrangements were efficient and the tour itself was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable and considerate. I would use Borneo Sandakan Tours again, for sure! Thank you all!
