We booked three tours with Borneo Eco Tours before arriving in Borneo. The services offered by the booking team were fantastic. I asked a number of questions and received quick, helpful responses throughout the booking process. The website is also great with lots of information . Once booked I was provided with a booklet on things to do in advance and what to take on each tour - this confirmed the reviews I had read online that BET is an established, well organised business. 

Mount Kinabalu Day Trip: We were collected by Adam (tour guide) with another guide driving the bus. We were provided with a pack and detailed itinerary of all our trips. There were two pairs on the tour so only four in the minibus. Adam provided us with lots of information about KK as we departed the city and proceeded to drive to Mt Kinabalu. We stopped at a market for a look / fruit stop / toilet stop en route. We got some good photos there. Our travel companions for the day were nature enthusiasts and had expressed an interest in seeing the biggest flower so we built this into the day. Also visited the treetop canopy walk (worth it), sulphar baths (didn't go in but don' think we missed out) and the botanical garden at Mt Kinabalu. Adam was so full of knowledge about the plants and wildlife - we were super impressed. 

Quad Biking: Again collected at the hotel lobby at the designated time by Jason and Melvin. Driven out to Kiuli for the Quad Biking where we were greeted by Jo. This is a community project and provides Jo and his family with income and involves his local community. Quad bikes were new and clean. Good helmets and googles. There were four on our tour and we covered 20km on road off-road. Jo was fab, really caring and making sure that we were all comfortable going down awkward hills etc. At the end of the tour we were given noodles and juice that his aunt had made us. It really felt like part of the community. There was a random aussie chap on the bus home that wasn't explained who he was but we fell asleep almost immediately. A good way to see the countryside that you wouldn't ordinarily get to see. 

3D 2N Borneo Eco-Lodge Tour: Wow. Collected at our hotel by Fernando who was super informative about the orangatuns and asked if I was a model so that obviously helped. Met the rest of the group at Sepilok for Orangatuns. Watched an interesting video about their plight, watched the feeding and headed to the nursery. Very well organised. Sun bear sanctuary next which was ace - they were so active!! Buffet lunch at the Sabah Hotel which was actually very good with lots of choice. We opted for the slightly cheaper option so were bussed to the Lodge whereas the rest of the group (20 people) were taken on boat. Bus had wifi and we were collected by a speedboat for the final 10 minutes. This worked to our advantage as we had a private bus and a private speedboat. Warmly greeted at the lodge which has been awarded a national geographic prize for unique lodges of the world. Room was great, comfy beds and a good bathroom but air con only during the day. Lots of unique crafts int he room which could be purchased. First river cruise in the pm with leaf monkey's, probscisos monkey's and hornbills seen. We had the official tour guide To steering our boat and he was knowledgeable and interesting. We understand the other half of the group didn;t have as good a guide. Food at the lodge was very good with variety. We bought some drinks from the bar and although slightly more expensive than the centre of KK or Sandakan these were not expensive by any means. We did the night cruise and would recommend as it offers a different dynamic to the cruising. You do have some spare time / time to yourself between the morning and afternoon cruises so bring a book / pack of cards. Orangutans happened to arrive in the garden of the lodge so To escorted us all out to see. Back into Sandakan for lunch, rain forest discovery centre and war memorial. All very interesting and we saw more orangutans in the wild. 

Tour company are honestly fab and I would not hesitate to book another tour with them.

It was absolutely amazing! We had so much fun out there :) Perfect organization and all so friendly. I've give you feedback on Facebook and Tripadvisor. Best thing we have done on Borneo. Thanks again for that great experience!

I've done many things in the area ; snorkeling in the bay, fishing in Mengalum, trecking in Ranau, rafting on Kiulu River, montain biking in Kota Belud and your tour was, for me, the best. Quad bikes were good, training session was ok too. The morning ride was long enough, the local lunch was excellent. Even the short afternon ride near the pineapple plantation was good. Be sure you'll have some news of my friends for another tour.
