      Great snorkelling day trip
      We were fortunate to have great weather on the day. Enjoyed the snorkelling by the boat. Saw loads of colourful fish, and I even saw clown fish. Our tour guide, Vince, was punctual, friendly, chatty, and gave us some information on things to do and see in KK. He also was great in informing us with the itinerary of the day.

      Great, professional tour
      We had a good time during our experience. Pick up and drop off was smooth and there was good communication with us before we started. The fireflies were amazing and the proboscis monkeys were so interesting. The beach and sky mirror was stunning. The guides were great in helping to take some amazing pictures.

      Unethical
      Don't book this tour if you care about the wildlife , it felt very unethical. When we did the river cruise, there was a big lizard sunbathing on the palm tree a few metres above the water (pictured), the boat took us very close to it, and one of the guides pushed it off the tree and into the water. The guides were all laughing. The lizard was fine, but there was no need to disturb it. Also when feeding the monkeys, the tour guides were teasing it by holding out a banana and then snatching it back to try to get the monkeys agitated and show their teeth. Again, this was unnecessary. I don't feel the monkeys should be fed by the tour groups at all because it can result in them being dependent on us for food and affect their natural behaviours. The firefly part of the tour was incredible, there were so many fireflies in the trees and it was magical. That was until the tour guides shone a torch to bring them onto the boat and encouraged tourists to catch them with their hands. Most tourists were gentle which I've read is safe for the fireflies, but some tourists were clapping their hands together, which would kill the fireflies if caught. The guides did not ask them to stop doing this or show the correct method. Overall this has the potential to be a great tour, the river is stunning and we saw proboscis monkeys, the beach is massive and there were lots of sand bubbler crabs which was cool to see, the sunset was very pretty, the fireworks on the beach were cool, and the fireflies were amazing and unique. Unfortunately the tour guides have made this trip unethical, which spoiled it for my group.

      Amazing experience
      We had an amazing experience w feeding the monkeys and watching the fireflies in front of your face. Strongly recommend this tour. The crew will do everything in order for each person to get the best pictures by the water.

      Definitely worth checking out
      I had a blast on this adventure! I was surprised it was a 2-hr drive from Kota Kinabalu but they made the whole afternoon very much worth it. The guides were funny and made sure we all got super close to the macaques and pointed out the Proboscis monkeys. They even saw a couple monitor lizards and pointed them out. They were really attentive during the sunset photography which I appreciated because I traveled solo and they got some AMAZING shots! The dinner was delicious and the firefly part was hilarious and fun. Totally worth it!

      Great experience with a great group and an even better guide. The fireflies were incredible and the guide worked super hard to get the perfect sky mirror shot.

      Great Fun
      Everything went to plan from on time hotel pick up to return drop off. Had Macaque monkeys join us on the boat, proboscis moneys were a bit more elusive but we did glimpse them and the fire flies rounded out the entertainment. Nice dinner and beach too.

      Nice day trip
      Our pick up was punctual. Guide was lovely & professional. Had one 40 mins session of snorkelling and stayed on island until 2.30pm. Lunch & snacks were delicious. Resort itself very clean but move further down beach the plastic & trash is shocking - I know it’s a problem everywhere but think they should try and clear it and keep on top of clearing it regularly as puts you off snorkelling & swimming. Couldn’t see the clear kayak as advertised to see the ocean below but other kayaks and paddle boards available for free. Nice day.

      Relaxing tour far from the crowds, highly recommend!
      Such a relaxing tour, I would highly recommend! You get to visit a private island, at the time we went there were about 20-30 people on the whole island, feels like you get the whole island to yourself. Snorkelling was nice, felt very safe, ideal also for people who can’t swim. Lunch and snacks were delicious. There’s good facilities on the island like showers and toilets, a snack store. We got some pictures of us as well :) there are kayaks and sup boards you can use for free and some other equipment for rent. Ideal for solo travellers too :)

      Fantastic experience, highly recommended!
      For everyone who is in Kota Kinabalu and looking for an island to go to, look no further than Dinawan with EasyGo Tours! Vince was our tour guide and it was fantastic. He picked us up promptly and Dinawan is absolutely stunning. The beach had crystal clear water, very pristine, and was not crowded at all. There were a ton of water sports to play with and the lunch/afternoon tea was so good! We also had unlimited water, tea and coffee which was great. The entire day went very smoothly & efficiently. The staff are all super friendly and and we felt very safe and comfortable the entire day. Vince was a great tour guide, he was communicate and helpful, always checked in on us but gave us a ton of space. We never felt rushed and was very well taken care of. At the end, he helped us take a ton of photos and gave us a bunch of suggestions and spots to take photos - we really appreciated it! We can't boast about this tour enough and really recommend everyone to check it out!!

      Magical fireflies and mirror photography experience
      An amazing experience overall despite the rain and drizzle during parts of the afternoon. *Pick up was on time and Nick kept everyone in the group posted of the arrival at each hotel. I liked their use of the whatsapp group festure so that we could contact them when needed. *Commuter van was comfy with cool AC.  Journey was about 1.5 hrs to the river. * toilets at the River cruise point were very clean and are sitting toilets. Avoid those at the petrol station midway if you could. * Our guides James spoke good English while Dandan was proficient in mandarin. * experience with the long-tail monkeys was "interactive". Guide James was a Wildlife Whisperer. The monkeys came on board our boat to eat bananas and melon seeds but they were not aggressive.  James knew how to deal with them. Even the kids could feed bananas to the monkeys. There were more than a dozen of them including a mama with baby. * Also spotted monitor lizard and baby salt water crocodiles. * Dinner was not fancy but satisfying.  I enjoyed the home-cooked curry chicken and stir fried bee hoon, amongst other dishes on a buffet layout. * in part II of the tour, we spotted 2 proboscis monkeys on a tree top.  It was a matter of good fortune as they are wild and sometimes do not make appearance at all.  They do not respond to any lure, apparently. We respected that. * photography on the mirror beach was fun.  The rain stopped just in time and the dusk colours were sufficient to provide some lovely hues.  James, Nick and Dandan helped guests take photos and they really went all out to help us with natural poses and getting some nice memories even at the expense of themselves getting wet in the tide that came in. I even did a small jump and was surprised how good the photo turned out * The best was at the end when we cruised back to the twinkle lights of the fire flies, which lined both sides of the river.  They even flew towards us so that we could play with them up close. The crew knew how to use light to interact with the fire flies so that they responded to our presence. Nick, with a sweep of his hand, put several fireflies into my palm, one at a time. It was a magical Christmas tree experience that would stay in my mind for a long time. * Arrived back in hotel just before 9pm. My heart felt full after the experience with nature and the friendly and helpful team. Every member crew was good, including the skipper who kept us safe and the mama cooks who prepared our dinner.  Thank you all for the wonderful time.  I wish everyone happiness.

      Would go again :)
      We loved the whole thing; saw monkeys as promised, got lucky with weather and a lovely sunset and saw fireflys as well. Everyone very curteous, helpful and knowledgable. Our pictures and experience were great! P.s bring mosquito spray for the evening boat ride and wear a nice light coloured skirt or dress for the beach pics (yellow and white are amazing)!

      ATV adventure
      We started off with bad weather when travelling up to Kundasan. Glad the sky cleared up and the view was amazing. The experience was great and the ice cream from the dairy farm was yummy too! Thanks to our guide Hector.

      Relaxed, no crowds, great food!
      A great day all around. Started with an excellent guide, Vince who took advantage of the lack of traffic on a Sunday allowing us a local breakfast at a local coffee shop followed by a stop at a local beach before we went on our way to the island. The island was beautiful with very few people, felt like it was our own! Lunch was also fantastic. The water was a bit murky for snorkelling, though lovely and colourful fish and coral nonetheless. All in all a great day! Thanks Vince!

    Not worth $80 AUD, This tour is marketed to Chinese tourist (not to be racist). No light breakfast available. The first stop is at Sibuan island, where the itinerary states snorkelling/swimming/relaxing - however we were joined by 6 other tourist boats and told there will be no swimming at this stop. The tourist migrated with their selfie sticks and littered the island for iphone photoshoots for the entire hour. Our next stop was the beautiful Bohey Dulang Island, once stopped we were told hiking was not available due to the rains the day before, we still stayed for 1.5hours, limited to the pier and yet again trying to enjoy the view without getting hit in the head by another selfie stick and photobombing a full blown iphone photoshoot. Bohey Dulang Island was beautiful, it was also very disappointing to see the chinese tourist absolutely disregard its beauty by throwing cigarette butts in the water and other rubbish. Lunch was delicious. On departure we then waited on the boat an extra hour for our tourist boat to get changed into swim gear. we finally get to our first snorkelling spot, and of course the entire boat votes against going into the water, except for myself and my friend. ( because they were too busy taking selfies of their second outfit of the day). we we rushed away to the second spot of snorkelling were we are joined by some of our counterparts their life jackets, life rings and selfie sticks. After tiring us out for an hour or so of snorkelling we stayed moored for a further 2 hours to max out the selfies for these guys, it was mind numbing being stuck on a boat with that many selfie loving tourists. Finally we made our way back home, 8 hours later.
