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.

Emailed borneo dreams 'melissa' from uk for the excursion package of turtle island sepilok kinabatangan river and lodge etc she was immensely helpful On arrival at sandakan airport (flight costs separate) we were picked up by our tour guide, Darwis Halide. Little did we realise... More

Booked the Proboscis Monkey & Fireflies River Cruise which was a highlight of my week in Borneo. Saw lots of monkeys and even a monitor lizard in the trees. Even the bus trip from the Sutera Harbour Magellan was enjoyable and a great look at the surrounding countryside. 'Five star western toilets' on the trip too which is handy for... More

I went on the two night, three day snorkelers package with Borneo Dream to Mataking Island. We were two couples traveling together and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. As young couples and normally backpackers the resort prices were not what we were used to but quickly realised that with everything included, Mataking was worth it. Firstly,... More

From the moment we booked our trip with Borneo Dream, they were amazing! We booked the Turtle Island 1D 1N trip with the Sepilok tour and Agnes Keith House. It was incredible value for money! A massive thanks to Dino who was a great guide over the 2 days. We would not hesitate to book another tour with Borneo Dream... More

Stayed seven nights at the magnificent Suteta Magellan and dived nine times in three days with Borneo Dream. Great dive operator, well organised, extremely safe and knowledgeable DM's Amir and Eugene. Thanks Joanne and all at Borneo dream. This has to be the number one dive company and hotel in Sabah.

I went to KK last week with friends and joined their DSD course. There is no word I can describe the wonder of underwater, when fishes are swimming around, when corals are moving. Tons of thanks to my diving instructor who gave me the guts to conquer my endless fears of deep water. It was such an extraordinary diving experience!!!!
