          Unique experience in Kota Kinabalu
          We had a fantastic tours in Kota Kinabalu with the help of our fantastic tour guide Tommy from The Amazing Borneo Tour. He was on time meeting us at the airport and well organized and full of good information. Tommy showed us the best of Kota Kinabalu. He made our experience unique and gave us memories to last a lifetime. Tommy cultural information was amazing and his English was very good. He was easy to understand and to converse with. Tommy definitely made us have a memorable impression on Kota Kinabalu. We would definitely recommend Tommy to Kota Kinabalu visitors.

          The real inside story of Sabah and its people. By Tommy Chan
          The company is very well organised, kept me updated and reminding me of my itinerary before my arrival into KK. We were very fortunate to have Tommy Chan to be our tour guide He was especially friendly and well informed us of the locals culture in Sabah. We thoroughly enjoyed our two days with him.

          Experience all of Borneo with Amazing Borneo
          Andrew, the representative in Australia for Amazing Borneo did an amazing job. He was readily contactable and organised our tailored trip to our satisfaction. We did multiple tours and pick up and drop offs from our accomodations right around the island of Borneo, all on time too. All ran seamlessly and Amazing Borneo was available when we had an enquiry along the way. Highly recommend

          Amazing tour
          We recently did the 6 day 5 night Canopy to coast tour with Amazing Borneo tours. Although booked via Amazing Borneo Tours a lot of the land content and travel arrangements were via Borneo Eco tours buses and guides which was a little confusing initially as we were of the impression that it was a group of travellers organised by Amazing Borneo Tours together for the whole time with one guide only. In fact it was quite different with people possibly referred via other travel agencies also joining different aspects of the tour and multiple guides over the course of the 5 days. This did not prevent us however from very much enjoying the trip. The highlights for us were the 1 The Orang Utan rehabilitation sanctuary and seeing these amazing animals and learning about them and how they are re introduced back to the wild 2 Sukau Rainforest Lodge. This is a beautiful and well appointed lodge in the rain forest with included boating trips and guided wildlife spotting . The guides were brilliant and super helpful and went out of there way to facilitate photography and we spotted a couple of orangutans in the canopies. 3 Lankayan Island This is a beautiful small island 70 km off the coast of Sabah. It is tiny and can be walked around in about 15 minutes. Nonetheless it was peaceful and relaxing and and a lovely place to chill, swim and snorkel. The disappointment for us was probably day 3. This involved transfer from Sukau to accommodation in Sepilok (where we had visited the orang utans on the first day). The only activity offered was a rainforest canopy walk which although lovely was hampered by the guide who appeared disinterested and was not very informative and keen to go. We were then dropped off to accommodation which was different from the original itinerary and definitely substandard to that on the rest of the tour and from the promised Sepilok Nature Resort where other guests we had met on the tour stayed. This accom was disappointing and not in keeping with the price charged. Overall however 4 of the 5 whole days were brilliant and we really enjoyed them. The final day was essentially coordinated to transport everyone from Lankyan back to Sandakan and the airport and there was no option to go to the airport later if you so wanted. We decided that we would and organised a Grab later so we could look around Sandakan. Finally a special thank you to Anthony who co ordinated the tour and was our point of contact before and during the tour. He was super helpful and responsiveThe tour was really well co ordianted on the ground from beginning to end. The all inclusive meals at Sukau and lankayan were great.

          Poor tour safety
          We completed the Kawa Kawa River and Fireflies tour. This was the worst tour we have completed in our two weeks in Borneo. The company obviously do not take safety of customers seriously. Guide/driver constantly was constantly texting/typing as driving at high speeds in dark and wet conditions with bus full of customers, and despite being asked to slow down. (Only after we passed a serious accident did he reduce speed). Boats were in appalling condition, not as in pictures for tour on website. The boat driver had to be asked to stop smoking next to the petrol engine with a full boat, and many kids. The life jackets were not safe, no kids life jackets. As for the actual tour itself, there were limited animals found on the first boat tour. The guide was on phone rather than helping look for animals and other customers were making loud phone calls. The guide didn’t want to go to the beach for sunset as it had been raining. I insisted we head down and it was a beautiful sunset, would have been a shame to miss it. The fireflies were nice but we were only on the water for 20mins. Overall, I would not recommend this tour to anyone.

          Mount Kinabalu Summit Hike is a Amazing Life Experience
          Mount Kinabalu trip is a life defining experience. The hike there and back is a real slog and the climb to summit should not be underestimated in terms of effort required. But the view from the summit at sunrise is just spectacular and gives an amazing sense of accomplishment. Amazing Borea is very well organised. Multiple pickups and drop offs and arrangements made super efficiently and with nothing delayed or missed. Top notch! Finally a special mention to the guide, who was organised by amazing Borneo. Humble, knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. He kept us on track and well informed of where we were and what to expect. He made a big part of a great experience.

          OK for a stroll around
          It is OK - nothing all that interesting except for the bustle of a busy market - but it is a pleasant enough spot to wander around.

          Thank you Waty, for the great arrangement for our vacations to Kota Kintabalu/Kundasang with North Borneo Cruise and to Kudat (Rungus Long House Stay). Not forgetting the tour guide to Kudat, Mr Richard and the driver Mr Pester. Despite the bumpy road to Kudat, the whole journey is enjoyable. Thank you very much and definitely will book again with Amazing Borner for the next vacation to KK.

          Literally, Amazing Borneo! Thank you very much!
          Absolutely recommend Amazing Borneo! They made our climb up Mount Kinabalu fantastic. From the comfortable accommodation to the excellent customer service, everything was perfectly arranged. We felt safe and looked after throughout the entire trip. Many thanks to Anthony Wong, my dad met him at a Matta Fair and he has been extremely helpful for going the extra mile and making our trip truly unforgettable! We ended up booking 2 trips with him, one for our climbing expedition and the other for my parents (4D3N KK & Kundasang-Package C). We all had an amazing time with Amazing Borneo! Thank you for showing us how beautiful Sabah is and we will be back soon! Don't hesitate to book with Amazing Borneo!

        A rugged hiking trail with rocky terrain with concrete steps that leads to the peak at 278m above sea level. The age range of my group of ladies is 64 to 75 years old. We made it to the top at 6:15 am after trekking almost 1 hour. Viewing the sunset was worth what feels like climbing of a million steps. As advised by guide the use of hiking poles defiantly enabled us to have smoother ascend and decend.

        Our guide from Amazing Borneo was very patient and helpful especially towards the older members of our group.

        I was travelling alone and there wasn’t much tour that was open for join in however thanks to Reza from Sabah Travel who managed to arrange for me a private tour. I am so thankful she took the effort to help me with the arrangement as it made my trip complete.
        I basically just left my whole trip in her capable hands. She was recommending me all kinds of activities at the same time understanding my limitations and age.
        In the end, I get to experience it all thanks to Reza. River, Hike, Beach and Paragliding. I can’t thank her enough!.
        I got Neil as my private guide. He is so professional and knowledgeable and entertaining. I had so much fun! Oh did I mentioned he is extremely handsome too!
        Also it was my first time hiking in the dark! I never felt safer cause I know I was in good hands.
        It was so worth it! The view from St. Veronica is beyond words.
        Oh Neil also took to me try this authentic Tuaran mee and he gave me a whole history of it. I love it!
        I strongly recommend Amazing Borneo for all your travel arrangements to Sabah.
        They have the best staff and they are all so attentive!
        With staff like Reza and Neil, they can run the whole show. Reza will arrange and Neil will tour it! Best combo ever!

        This is kinda late. me and other 2 friends went for a trip to Kota Kinabalu earlier this year. (Our trip took place on Good Friday between 29april - 1april) Our plan was to climb Mount Kinabalu, but because of the recent earthquake 2 weeks prior our main trip, I had to replan/change with my friends to still have our feet climb some mountain. And I came across this tour from Amazing Borneo and decided to go with it on our 1st day.

        - Sunrise Leisure Hike St Veronica Hill + Kiulu White Water Rafting (Grade I-II)

        ~~Day 1~~

        ~St Veronica Hill hike~
        So the actual day came was our flight was delayed for 4hrs. (Initial to reach KK on 29 April 8pm, we could spend a bit of time exploring the city at night) We finally touchdown at KK airport at 1.30am on 30 April. And our tour starts in a couple of hours. So we didn't sleep (or maybe took like 30mins nap before heading out again.)

        And we head down from the hotel to find our guide Reynold waiting for us with a huge minibus. Off we went. Introduce ourselves and was told that the journey to St Veronica would take about 1.5-2hrs to reach and snapped, we were fast asleep off like a bunch monkey. At about 4.30am we woke up to reach the site. As dark, it was, no light. (I have forgotten to grab my headlight along) as we relied on our guide touch light and our tiny phone light. Pitch dark as we started climbing up the hill.

        Our guide Reynold was fantastic, he explained to us on how the hill came about and told us that today was even a special day to climb. (We didn't think much as we were still quite sleepy) With each step we took the place became clearer to walk. Stumbling along the crosses along the way, and finally reached the peak of the hill.
        Wonderfully it was beautiful, Sunrise view, we could see everything!! From such a small hill we could see Mount Kinabalu just across us and a few other mountains/hills along it. Can't resist the sight and yes the cold air was coming directly from Mount Kinabalu.

        So here comes the interesting part, we decided to descend down towards the starting point after spending 2-3hrs above going crazy over the view. (We love hiking!!) to notice a group of Catholic people climbing up along the way with the huge cross sign on their back. They were singing their prayers towards the peek. It was truly the most interesting event as we totally forgotten that it was "Good Friday". As daylight shine downwards you could see the description of the 13 (or was it more) crosses along the way to the peek. Truly an interesting event

        (So after we exercise on our legs, time to exercise hands!!)

        ~Kiulu White Water Rafting~
        So, right after the hike towards St Veronica's hill, we descend down for breakfast. As our guide brought us to a recommended local food stall to eat. It was delicious. (I have forgotten what I bought) As we share our travel trip around the world, it would go on for about 1hr or more. Even Reynold shared his dangerous trip in Mount Kinabalu and around the world. It felt enriching and good to have people who love to hike and travel.

        Reynold then drives towards the Kiulu River, for about 1.5hrs. Getting us ready for the rafting session. What's more, a 9km long river as we were guided by 2 other expert rafters and set of that long 1.5hr rafting trip down the 9km Kiulu river. We had a great time splashing water and racing against a few other rafters along the way. Even when our legs were as stive trying to secure our feet to the rope on the raft.

        Reynold waited for us at the ending point of the Kiulu rafting area. We took a quick bath and drove us back towards our hotel. It was the best tour jam pack on the 1st day. I would highly recommend hiker lovers to go hiking with Reynold. He shares all the awesome facts, jokes and laughter on hiking and travel. We love it!!


        We continue our 2nd day on tour with Amazing Borneo again. Guess who was our guide again. Reynold!! hahahaha!! AWESOME!! He shares with the rest of the group on our hike to St Veronica. :D

        We look forward to visit Mount Kinabalu again with Reynold as our tour guide again!! :D

        This hike is a bit steeper and harder than we originally thought it would be but so worth it. It was lovely seeing all the crosses on the way up and our tour guide Richard was very informative. We missed out on the sunrise due to mist coming and going but the scenery was still beautiful. Breakfast afterwards was wonderful with the locally home made noodles and delicious Sabah coffee.
        I have to say that Amazing Borneo tours are just so well organised and the tour guides they have are very well informed and friendly. We had Andrew in Sarawak and Tan and Richard in Saba, these guys made the whole experiences so much better. We also had a lot of help from the Australian team giving us advice before we left, couldn't ask for a better organised holiday!
