I had Sapi Island Hopping arranged by Fiq and teams last week while waiting my flight to Bali. I had awesome summer experience in Sapi Island with beautiful underwater view plus monitor lizard as well. They also organized BBQ lunch with great food. Definitely will use their service especially when I am ready to conquer Mount Kinabalu.

It has been quite a while since last I stayed at BGB. I remember very well the friendly welcome, the quiet and safe atmosphere, basic needs provided. On the whole, we had a comfortable, homey stay at BGB. Will actually be going back with my whole family come August 2015. Need to book!

This agent that I was in touch with throughout the planning and the trip itself was wonderful. The staff was very patient with all our many changes, of which I must admit were numerous, and all of our many requests. We had an amazing trekking in Kinabalu and in the 5 days that we had, we believe we managed to... More

Diving and snorkelling was awesome, never seen anything like it, didn't like that we couldn't replace dive equipment that was lost as ther was no dive shop at a dive resort, and found it a bit odd that the majority of people who went there were Chinese families that didn't dive just took photos and let there kids run amok

Great diving....truly some of the best of my career. I'd go again if I didn't have such a long "must see other countries" list.
