I have been one of those people that shamefully use tripadvisor but never write reviews. Bike and Tours have prompted me to change my ways - accommodation this good should be talked about!
My husband and I stayed for 2 x 1 night stays around our trip to the Danum Valley based solely on tripadvisor reviews, and we were so pleased to have done so. Tisha and Simon run a seamless operation, from advice on getting to Lahad Datu overland from Sipadan before we left the UK (note none of the Sipadan hotels seemed able to do this), to picking us up from the bus station, from providing comfortable and uber-clean accommodation to feeding us some of the best food we had in Borneo (no-one other than these guys could have persuaded me to eat durian, and they managed it...). I don't think I've ever experienced such good service anywhere, and they work really hard not just on their own tours, but also on knowing and understanding what's available externally, meaning their recommendations on where to go and what else to do in the area are well researched and very reliable.
The only slight downside for us was not having enough time to do one of their tours, if we go back, we'd certainly spend more time in Lahad Datu. Tisha and Simon have the ability to put this little town on the map - whatever the guidebooks say!
Thanks guys for everything and we wish you every success.
