Mr D B - East Sussex

"We have now arrived back in the UK after a truly memorable Borneo holiday.  The tour...was fantastic, we saw a great range of wildlife...It is a tie between the wild orang-utan and the grazing elephants as to the highlight of the holiday. The guides were excellent...The tour has left us with two problems: how can we afford to have all our film developed and where do we go on holiday next year? Thanks for arranging a great holiday."

Mr & Mrs N B - North Yorkshire

“A most enjoyable tour, ran smoothly and saw most of what we hoped to see. Borneo people we met were friendly and helpful. Standard of food was far better than we expected and most enjoyable. Would recommend this trip to anyone wishing to visit Borneo for a few weeks. Thanks!”

Mr R O - Kinross

"Borneo is a wonderful place – the people were really helpful and very charming. Superb wildlife thrilled us all. Our children said it was their best holiday so far. Everything worked really well. We would not hesitate to use you again and to recommend you."

Mrs A L - London N8

"We had no expectations on what animals we would see and how every aspect of the holiday would gel together but it was excellent... We talked to lots of people on our trip and most went to great lengths to book their holiday, trawling the internet for flights, looking at different companies for their tours etc. We couldn’t believe how much trouble they went to, they obviously didn’t find your website. When we told them that our only worry was malaria tablets they couldn’t believe it!! Oh did we feel so smug!!! (We) especially appreciated your advice on our silly questions. So, thank you all for a fantastic holiday and this household will be arguing for months about where we will be going next!"

Mrs J J - Devon

“We had a great holiday because we were looked after so well. The wildlife viewing was the best possible because of the effort put into it by the guides...We saw more wildlife than we expected or had hoped for. Orang-utans in the wild as well as at Sepilok. The turtle laying and releasing was great. A heard of about 20 elephants at Sukau only feet from the boat + an amazing array of birds including some very rare ones. Also a 9’ crocodile....Danum Valley was amazing but it is necessary to stay several nights at least to get the benefit. Overall it was a brilliant holiday.”

Mr & Mrs P C - Newbury

“Very helpful - we went to all the right places, well-designed tour. [Wildlife highlights included:] Orang-utans, gibbons, seeing wildlife unit filming, 5m reticulated python, storm stalks, hornbills, kingfishers, green turtles egg-laying, birdsnest soup caves (but not the cockroaches!), monitor lizards, leopard cats, slow loris, binturong, mouse deer + other deer, fruit bats, black squirrels, some pretty nasty other snakes, flying fish, Borneo pigmy elephants, proboscis monkeys, macaques, otter etc.”

Mrs C M - Chepstow

“(Our Guides) were very friendly, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic to make sure you came away with a good experience. The transfers and mechanics of the tour were very efficient which took a lot of the normal stress and worry away from us. We liked the small and intimate nature of the tour and groups we made up, consequently we got to know some lovely people who contributed to the excitement of the occasion… the constant “wows” and “ahhs” from everybody especially my girls.. thank you!”

Mrs J H - Crewe

"I would like to express my thanks to you for preparing the splendid itinerary, covering my recent trip to Borneo. I achieved every objective set, from reaching the summit of Mount Kinabalu to photographing wild orang-utans, proboscis monkeys and crocodiles, not to mention watching turtles laying their eggs and the hatchlings returning to the sea, plus all the other fascinating wildlife that was observed. The organisation on the ground was seamless and every connection and transfer in a somewhat complex itinerary went like clockwork. Accommodation and cuisine in the various lodges was excellent...superb diving at both Mabul and Sipadan. Once again, thank you - we shall be back."
