AMAZING!! Didn't want to leave

My husband and I booked Borneo Eco Tours a few weeks before we left for Malaysian Borneo, the booking process took some time as it's mostly emails back and forth. Given we were late planning our trip, we were not able to go on the tour we wanted but they worked with us to ensure we could be placed on a tour and got the most out of it, and we did. The transport was comfortable and the guides were just great, so knowledgeable and eyes like hawks spotting all the amazing wild life along the river. The accommodation, the people, the effort they put into making your stay enjoyable was beyond anything I expected. Would recommend for anyone and hope to get back there one day.

The happiest staff, the nicest people and most well organised eco tour !

I booked a two week package with Borneo Eco Tours, travelling solo. I am a recent widow. Well!!... it’s the best thing I’ve done for myself for a long time. They were fantastic. Carolina organised everything for me to the last little detail. I had a guide for every step of the way. And I have to say Guide extraordinaire Syavil and Captain Gavin were great. Really impressive. I could not believe how these two young blokes could find what they did!! A bright green bird spotted sitting on a branch in a rainforest while driving toward Mt Kinabalu was incredible!! Just one example. Joy and Marty also very friendly and helpful too. Passionate about nature and cheerful. 
I saw so many wondrous animals and birds, insects and of course plants. 

They organised a 3 night stay in Kawag rainforest lodge in the Danum valley with Borneo Refugia who were also excellent. Rom is a wonderful guide and has awesome skills with finding all sorts of wondrous life forms. He’s fascinated with snakes and reptiles and I must say I’m a fair bit fonder of them now!! 

I thoroughly recommend this company. You can trust them.
Thankyou very much. I’ll be back soon to see the Elephants when they return to the lodge in Kawag on migration!! Whooo hoooo !

Fantastic 1 day tour in Sandakan

I had booked a 1 day tour with my 10 year old son in Sandakan. Of course we were to see the orangutan sanctuary, the sun bear sanctuary and lastly a canopy skywalk in the Rainforest Discovery Center. The whole program worked like a clockwork. They had even informed our hotel about the pickup time in advance. Both my son and I had an unforgettable day, and we will highly recommend others to book with them. We were so lucky, that we during our canopy walk encounter to see a wild orangutan family crossing our canopy just above our heads, truly unforgettable.

Well organised, amazing adventure

We booked a five day four night tour with Borneo Eco Tours following great reviews from other travellers and also a friend. We were not disappointed. Our tour involved a two night stay at the Sukau Rainforest Lodge and two nights at the Danny Valley Field Centre. Sukau lodge was superb, with great rooms, two pools and excellent food throughout the day (they did like to keep you fed and watered). DVFC was much more basic, but that was to be expected. Still, the rooms were comfortable with a battery powered desk fan which lasted the night once the electricity goes off at 11pm and tasty food offered. We had the same guide, Marty, throughout and he was superb. Friendly, fun and extremely knowledgeable, too. It was amazing how eager his eye was in spotting animals, allowing us to see gibbon, orangutang, pygmy elephants, crocodiles and countless other animals through the stay. He tailored our programme to suit our requests. Overall, our experience with Borneo Eco Tours was superb. It was expertly organised and a very well run, smooth operation throughout without making you feel like you were a cog in a much bigger wheel. If you’re visiting Sabah, you should certainly check what Boreno Eco Tours has to offer!

Amazing 3N/4D Orangutan Tour!

This trip has been on our bucket list for years and it far exceeded our expectations! The entire experience was simple from the first email to Sheyron. We were collected by Shah who's knowledge was incredible, she was so friendly and made sure we were well looked after during our stay. the transfer was fun and the lodges were soo much better than we imagined. we saw wild orang-utans including a mother and baby every day above our lodge. The food was great and there was plenty of it too. The only observation I must make is that we were told to pack a small bag and that they would store our cases - which we did. Our cases then arrived at our room as we did. As I say this is an observation about improving communication not a real negative. Highly recommend!

Fantastic. Professional. Recommended.

We joined a tour from Sepilok to Sukau Rainforest Lodge with a boat transfer from Sandakan. The whole experience was (a) exceptionally well organised, (b) professional and (c) truly memorable. The guides were very friendly and polite as well as being incredibly knowledgeable. There tours were organised at sensible times to Maximise the chances of seeing the wildlife. The hosts at the lodge were extremely welcoming and generous. 

Would highly recommend these guys.

Excellent tour - our guide Adrian was the best!

My husband and I booked a private tour of Kinabulu Park and Poring Hot Springs and it did not disappoint! Our guide Adrian was fantastic - he's clearly extremely knowledgeable about the rainforest, but didn't over play it and managed to make everything interesting and fun. His eagle eyes meant we were lucky enough to spot lots of wildlife and plants, from flying lizards, to the world's small squirrel and the world's largest flower. Walking over rope bridge through the forest canopy was also of the highlights of our trip to borneo.

I would definitely book with Eco Tours again, and would request Adrian. The office staff are very helpful and responsive when booking the tours too.

An Amazing Experience

Borneo is an amazing place to visit once in your lifetime. Thanks to Borneo Eco tours, our experience was flawless. They are a very well coordinated tour company. It starts from Danella my consultant, I mean we must have shared like 2 dozen or more emails to finalize on everything. She just was very quick in her responses. The Sukau Rainforest lodge that we stayed at was also very well organized and very punctual with their timings and the schedules planned. A special mention to our tour guides Mirwan and Vincent. They had like a plethora of information that they wanted to share with us. On the whole an amazing experience, a one that I would definitely reccomend.

Absolutely Fantastic

We have spent the last 3 days with Borneo Eco Tours, firstly doing there Sandakan trip (Proboscis Monkeys, Orangutans, Sun Bears, Rainforest Discovery Centre and the war memorial) and then today we did their white water rafting trip.

Sandakan - We loved this trip. Our guides were brilliant, their knowledge of each section of the trip was amazing and it really enhanced the experience for us. They provide transport between each section so you never have to worry about getting to the next place! The Sabah hotel is great wee stop over, with nice views, pool and a lovely buffet dinner with a huge variety. I can not recommend this trip enough for people of any age with an interest in seeing more of Borneo’s amazing wildlife. The value for money this trip gives you makes it even better!

White Water Rafting - We decided to take part in the more advanced session with 9 great rapid sections. We had never done this before but our guide was absolutely amazing, his health and safety briefing was funny yet informative making us feel relaxed with our surroundings. At no point in the trip did I feel out of my comfort zone as I knew I had our guides looking out for us. Again, this trip is brilliant value for money and I would recommend to it to any thrill seeker looking to try their hand at WWR. 

Throughout our time with Borneo Eco Tours, the correspondence has been flawless. We had all of the information we needed and any questions we had were answered quickly over email. Well done to Borneo Eco Tours, you made our trip amazing and I will definitely be using you and recommending you to others in the future.

Great way to experience the rain forest.

We booked on the River & Rainforest (BB7G) tour and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Borneo rainforest. The first two stops (the Orangutan and Sun Bear rehabilitation sites) were too touristy for my liking, but it was good to have a close-up view of both species. Getting out onto the river and heading into the wilderness and away from the bus tours was a great relief. The two lodges were pretty remote and involved lengthy travel, but it was worth all the effort and is the only way to see the true jungle. The guides were very knowledgeable and looked after us very well and the lodges were faultless. This was not a cheap trip, but was well worth the money for a once in a life time experience.
