Our trip with Borneo Eco tours was amazing. The service level was high, very good guides, friendly and professional drivers etc. We saw many animals and very much enjoyed staying at Sukau Rainforrest Lodge. Only bad experience was they day in Sandakan where we were meant to see the WW2 POW Memorial and rainforrest center. We were rushed through this and our guide seemed uninterested and not so motivated. But aside from this one bad day everything else was perfect!
Melvin and Felix are very good guides.
