Via internet we had pre-arranged our excursions in Sabah. Communicatie via email went very well and full information and advise was given by Cindy. Unfortunately we had to change our travel plans and only were able to visit Kota Kinabalu area. The daytrips were well organised and with good drivers and guides. Timing excellent. Only negative is that the daytrip to Gaya island and snorkeling tour are not very interesting. The islands are very crowded with Asian tourists. Snorkeling is almost impossible because of the many, many (!) people in the water. The next trip took us to Gunung Kinabalu, which is beautifull in itself. We were lucky to see the mountain in full glory. Only the hiking we did was very limited and not worth the long drive (2hours). We had nice days but can not recommend these two tours to anyone. Snorkeling and jungle tours are much better and les crowded elsewere in Malaysia and Borneo. Also gunung Kinabalu is more interesting If you are planning to climb and explore the area more extensively than we did during this tour. The agency itself is highly recommended!

We did a day tour to Mt Kinabalu with Borneo Eco Tours in June. I found the initial correspondence with the company prompt and friendly. Our minibus turned up at our accommodation right on time and out jumped Loren with a huge smile and friendly greeting. As we travelled to Mt Kinabalu Park we picked up other tour participants and chatted to everyone. We discovered that we had another guide with us sitting in the front - Adrian. Well, we were in for a treat. Adrian has been with the company, something like 18 years and is their senior guide. He was so interesting to talk with and gave us a history talk about Malaysia in general and about the different indigenous tribes. We had a short stop at a market before we arrived at the Mt Kinabalu Park World Heritage Site. On our walk we had excellent explainations of both flora and fauna. Adrian was so accommodating with our questions and was so knowledgable and passionate about the environment we were exploring. We had lunch at a local restaurant - a buffet, which allowed us to try a range of Malaysian dishes. Then we visited a small museum before heading back to Kota Kinabalu. I'm so pleased that we took this tour. Thank you both Adrian and Loren for your excellent guiding services - I cannot recommend them highly enough. Your tour was one of the highlights of our two week trip in Malaysia.
