~ We visited the Danum Valley with your Company and found all the arrangements to be well organised. The tour was wonderful-we saw so many aspects of nature that we would never have seen without the knowledgeable and helpful guides. Arranging the tour by email from Australia was very easy, dealing with Nelly and Shirley before her.
