We booked Proboscis Wildlife River Cruise and a Day Trip to Mantanani Island (leisure scuba diving) with BGB. The driver and the guides (Faris, Eko and Naslam) were really nice and accommodating. They speak fluently in English. They picked us at the hotel on the dot. The guides made sure we're enjoying everything and give us enough information about the... More

We went to Kinabalu Park, botanical garden, Poring Hotspring and two local markets. I love all, but especially I love the beautiful scenery of the mountain and local area. The guide Fiq and the driver Eddie were good team and helped us to know the places. I strongly recommend BGB tour for you.

WARNING - do not book with the mount Kinabalu climb with this company. They are double the price of anyone else I spoke to completing the trek for no difference in service. When I contacted them about my grievance they did not respond.

Before we finalized the Mount Kinabalu booking confirmation with payment, our email clearly mentioned with terms and conditions such as non refundable payment once tour secure, single surcharge for Single Traveler (SOLO TRAVELER) Also with good intention our management allow your climbing date to change from 6th of May to 17th - 18th due to your knee injury mentioned previous...

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.

I did not plan on going to Borneo when I was in SEA, but a random encounter convinced me to go. I ended up at BGB by chance, and it changed the entire course of my trip. I planned to stay for a few days, I ended up in Borneo for a month, most of that at BGB. Malcolm, an... More
