We recently arranged a birdwatching trip to Mt Kinabalu through Borneo Eco-tours. All the arrangements they made were very good, as was the accommodation and everything ran on time. We had Adrian Chin as our guide and he was excellent, with a good knowledge of the flora and fauna, as well as pleasant companion. As we had been before, we had quite specific birding requests and Adrian had a good eye for the birds and worked hard to get us the birds we wanted to see. We also fel ..

I know I asked for some things that may be different (local school visit) and what you arranged was absolutely amazing and would not have been possible without your assistance. I am so thankful and grateful for that – thank you so much! I would book anything with you again, if I was to visit again and would also highly reco ..
Thanks for organizing our trip to Kota Kinabalu NP.
All went well and Adrian was a great guide on our trip. Saw most of the target birds and tried hardly for the remaining few not seen species. Accomodation was excellent and the same for the food in the restaurant.
Now at home in sunny and rather cold weather, and cross-county skiing every day. That´s different to Kota Kinabalu...
