Silver Monkeys and Proboscis Monkeys
We came to the Proboscis Monkey Centre in time for the feeding, whilst there were no Proboscis around, there were a troupe of sleepy Silver Monkeys around the platforms.

The guides placed some bits of food on to the feeding platforms and made some monkey calls and eventually they came, we could see them coming through the trees, the young came out first then some of the older females followed by the big male.

It was interesting to witness the hierarchy within the troupe.

Mr.
Have book this tour many months in advance for one pax for €107! Arrive just night before the morning tour, have very stressful day because my flight was cancelled,all day waiting in Singapore airport but at the end got another flight&finally arrive in sandakan!Anyway arrive in Sandakan hotel 10:30 pm. When I connect my phone to wifi receive a email my tour was cancelled because there is no second person! Spend over €1000 just go to sandakan for 5 days then this?🤬 I send email this fantastic company with little bit of complain because will be nice to know a week before not just few hours before the tour! With quick response have been told if I pay another €107=214 there will be no problem!! Yes I didn't pay,but really same day after tour witch I did enjoy,have chat with the reception staff at hotel sandakan about this story,they say I should pay I should ju grab taxi&cost one way 50ring+30enter+50return=130ring.if you don't want to see more around Sepilok just examples! So €30 or €214🤡 so just be careful with who&what you booking!! Anyway have fantastic time Thanks to fantastic staff from Hotel Sandakan🙏

Just done exactly as advertised with a comfortable vehicle and polite and informative guide. We were never rushed and could spend a little extra time at places when we wished to. An enjoyable day.

Company cancelled my booking at the last minute
Nov 2019
I booked and paid for the trip about 6 weeks in advanced & was told it was confirmed. This trip was the only reason I traveled to Sandakan, but the company cancelled my booking at 4:30pm the day before. They also told me I had to contact Trip Advisor myself to get a refund.

I tried to get a last minute tour booked through my hotel, but they said it was too late. So, the cost of flights and accommodation here was for nothing thanks to this company. It wasn't even cancelled for any fault beyond their control, just because of insufficient numbers.

When passengers cancel bookings, especially at the last minute, they get charged a cancellation fee, but apparently the same courtesy doesn't apply to tour operators.

So, if you want to risk being left angry and out of pocket at the absolute last minute, with no opportunity to make alternative arrangements, then make your booking with this company. I sure don't recommend them. I feel like they've ruined my holiday to Sandakan. I'm pretty sure I'll never bother coming back.

At least I'm not left without anything to do - I now get to waste my time figuring out how to get my refund. Wish me luck!

Proboscis and orang utan tour are a must see!
Oct 2019
I did not take this specific tour but we did take another tour to see the Labuk Bay Proboscis monkeys. I think I enjoyed them even more then the Orangtan visit. The proboscis monkeys are really facsinating and so unusual. A true delight to watch

Brillient Tour
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a great day out the orangutans were great in the nusery area when it was feeding time. Although when we walked around to the wild area to watch a feeding platform there was nothing in site, it can happen semi wild orangutans do not perform for the public. so we moved off to visit the Proboscis monkeys at Labuk Bay, they were there in numbers in the trees and walking around , also there were some grey monkeys around they were quite happy running around the public, They also had a young baby monkey with them, they are orange in colour for there early weeks and then turn grey.

It was great fun and a lot were happy to pose for shots (within reason).

We then travelled back to Sepiloc Lodge for a meal. This was really good food and drink and the toilets were pleasant.

we went a short way to see the Sun Bears, they are interesting and I think we ended up seeing about 7 or 8 bears around.
At this point the tour guide asked if we wanted to do a tour of a town or go back to the orangutans to see if the afternoon would bring forth some wild orangutans. We of course said go back to Sepiloc, which is litterally opposite the Sun Bear reserve.

This time after about 20 mins a large male orangutan came down and started feeding , he also pick up cocoanuts and was hitting them against a large tree trunk to crack the shell and was drinking the cocoanut juice. It was certainly well worth going back.

Great Tour and Great Tour company, and guide who was flexable and catered for his tourists wishes.

Highly recommended.

Great tour but a little pricey
May 2019 • Couples
We had a great tour with our tour guide Lawrence. However, straight off the bat we were advised that there was no way we would be able to see all that the tour offered in the time period given and asked what we would like to prioritise. We opted to see the orangutans, sun bears and Proboscis Monkeys.

Lawrence was extremely knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna and made the tour very enjoyable. He was flexible and very friendly.

We did manage to squeeze in the Puu Jih Syh temple at the end of the tour which was great. Again, Lawrence was very knowledgeable and gave us great insight.

We very much enjoyed the tour, however, do think we paid more than what we were given. The itinerary should not be provided to customers (and paid for) if time does not allow.

If Lawrence weren't such a good tour guide, we would likely have asked for a partial refund.

That being said, it was a very enjoyable tour and made our stay in Sandakan very memorable.
