Both Bako and Kudat was fantastic and absolutely beautiful places. The Stargazing was truly magical. Unfortunately the guides I had at both places (but especially at Kudat) seemed rather uninspired..like they'd rather be somewhere else.

You can try this number ‭+60 16 880 2009‬ It’s more like a helpline number. Some or the other staff will get back to you. They are very reliable and responsive to mails too. Hope this helps Happy travels

I travelled solo with guide Joseph in early August. Nothing but praise for their organisation, picked up on time, joined other parties and everything went according to plan. Any doubts I had about the cost were dissipated when I experienced professional one on one guidance, which I am sure helped me to the top. This climb is not for the faint hearted, but well worth the experience and everyone is focussed on safety.

Sorry never heard of them but that is not to say they are not ok but i guess they are a small operator (there are many here) why not check them out on the Sabah Tourism website as they list most of the registered companies this may help put your mind at ease

Sandakan Borneo Safety (6 Replies)
Hi I booked a trip for myself, husband and three kids to go to Sandakan Borneo July 2016. We were looking forward to the 3 day/ 2 night tour by Amazing Borneo Tours. I have since heard through a friend of a friend who lives in Borneo that it is not safe to travel there. Can anybody please shed some light on this as now Im looking at cancelling and losing alot of money.

Its your choice. Some countries have travel advisories for Eastern Sabah. But personally I don't have any problems or concerns visiting Sandakan. I would go tomorrow if somebody would sponsor me. What is your friend of a friend doing in Borneo if its so unsafe?
