We used Borneo Dream for an orangutan and primate tour in the Kinabatangan area. We did a 3 day 2 night version which I think was the right amount of time. Our guide was very friendly and professional - he knew all the animals by sight and always had interesting anecdotes and facts to tell about all of them. We... More

Exceptional service. We let Jo and her team know what we were looking for and she did the rest. Easy.

My trek to the Maliau Basin was run by Fitness Adventures over 4 days in the Borneo wildness. The tour guide was amazing, nothing was too much trouble and he spoke perfect English. The waterfalls were magnificent and worth the climb for viewing. The trek was rugged which added to the enjoyment and sense of achievement and whilst the fitness... More

I chose this team for my open water course after reading other reviews here. I was very impressed with their communication pre dive and whilst on the course. My instructor, Andrew, was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate recommending you ask for him when learning to dive here. I hope work brings me back here again so I can try other... More

Me and a friend completed the PADI Open Water course with these guys in Kota Kinabalu. Really glad I chose Borneo Dreams, all the team were friendly, funny, very competent and made the experience a lot of fun (especially our instructor Amir!). Felt like a very personal service, with a good lunch everyday (included in the price) and was great... More

Absolutely fantastic trip and experience of a lifetime. Selingan island is truly beautiful - a drop of paradise in the ocean. Our guide arrived on time and was very professional. We got to see turtles nesting, which was a great experience. The river cruise was also brilliant where we were lucky enough to see the wild pygmy elephants swim across... More

Borneo Dream looked after our every need during our two day PADI Scuba Diver course at Gaya Island in Borneo. We had two instructors, Andrew and Basir, for our family of four who were extremely friendly, professional and above all made us feel completely safe at all times. Andrew was an excellent Dive Instructor, ably assisted by Basir, both allowing... More

We booked our trip in the morning of our half day tour. Cylester was very friendly and efficient! We called him at 8am and by 10.30am we were all booked and confirmed with payment made. He even made sure to call and follow up due to the urgency, which we greatly appreciated. About the tour: we were picked up, brought... More

My 13 year old daughter and I recently did our PADI open water course with Borneo Dream out of Kota Kinabalu. We had a fantastic experience. Our instructor (Des Maker) did a brilliant job in guiding us through the course. The dive sites were beautiful and the standards of the equipment, boat and crew could not be faulted. I intend...

We took their jungle tour, what I liked about them was we were never brought to shops as part of the tour. It was pure sight seeing and experience. Well done guys.
