“best daytrip up to date!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We booked whitewater rafting trip to Padas River with Amazing Borneo. They took great care of us, everything was very well organized. The pre-rafting briefing was very specific, and we felt safe on the boat.

The rafting itself lasts around 1,5hr but the scenic trip by train is amazing too. Amazing Borneo guys are super friendly and we had great fun on the boat, especially body rafting on the final stage was cool haha :)

We picked Amazing Borneo over Riverbud after reading reviews on tripadvisor but it appeared that as Amazing Borneo focuses more on climbing trips, the rafting is arranged together with Riverbug and on their boats. Nevertheless, nothing to complain about. We forgot to mention we're vegetarians when booking the trip but our guide Edward noticed we are ordering non-meaty breakfast in Beafort and made last moment adjustments to our lunch :) Greatly appreciated!

The whole day was fun and we have heaps of wonderful pics to remind us about that trip. Do this rafting if you can, it's sooooo worth it!

“Amazing Borneo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

My daughter and I spent Xmas doing a jungle tour. Everyone was so nice, we loved our boat rides especially. I'm sorry I never took the excursion to climb Mt K but we were in the rainy season, it was wet and cold and it was a family tour. So recommended... They even chased us on our way home to the airport on a Sunday arvo to give us the two company tea shirts we wanted to buy, as promised, so we could wear proud - well done... so glad I tipped all whenever I could along the way... Beautiful people.....

“Company Trip with Amazing Borneo Jan 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Our company retreat of 60 staffs had an enjoyable 3 days 2 night trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with Amazing Borneo.
It was a sudden decision to go Sabah for the company trip, with so many of us and the budget given, I didn’t know where to begin with. Perry, our sales coordinator from Amazing Borneo patiently giving me suggestions on the activities we can do.
Our guides Ryan and Belle were helpful and informative. They had also helped us arrange additional shopping trips during our stay. Ryan and Belle had also joined us in our Kiulu Water Rafting and we had a lot of fun. On our last day in KK, we were brought to Mamutik Island for team building activities and snorkeling. We were so excited to see the fishes.
Overall we enjoyed the trip very much and would love to go KK again.

“Amazing Borneo Tours (Mt. Kinabalu and Sepilok Area)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We were very satisfied with all service we got from Amazing Borneo Tour starting from the planning session and reservations for the tours and hotels and continuing to invoicing and services during our stay in Malaysia.

Service was very good, punctual and friendly, the hotels which Amazing Borneo Tour recommended for us were good and the tours were what we expected and beyond it. The guides both in Mt. Kinabalu and Sandakan and Sepilok area were both very professional, helpful and with good sense of humour and the drivers were very friendly, too. In addition we were very lucky to see lots of wild animals during our safari which was really something.

And Pulay Lankayan which Amazing Borneo helped us to make the reservation was such a paradise especially during those days when we were the only customers on the whole island :)

“Mt Kinabalu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The tour companies organise the logistics of going to the mountain, once there the park does the rest. Amazing Borneo were very easy and friendly to deal with and our experience was excellent. The park organises a guide, ours was great, and the food and accommodation. Accommodation was a comfortable bunk room to grab a short nap and the food interestingly enough is better the higher up the mountain you get.
