A World of Discovery

Borneo Tours

Ancient rainforests thriving with wildlife, hauntingly beautiful UNESCO-listed caves, traditional longhouses, endangered orangutan species and the highest peak in Malaysia await travellers in the tropical eco-tourism paradise of Borneo. Whether you decide to explore Sarawak in the South or Sabah in the North, both of these states possess an eclectic heritage and varied history, telling a fascinating story set against an impressive backdrop of dense, untamed jungle.

Our Borneo private tours, which can depart any day of the year, take in all the key highlights with local guides for sightseeing along the way. As well as the expert knowledge they impart, they will also organise day-to-day activities, assist with hotel check-ins and offer you tips on where to shop or eat at each port of call.

We had three or four days with each of these men. They were all wonderful, knowledgeable and very helpful with local information and about Sarawak and Sabah in general. They made sure we were safe (I am overweight) and able to negotiate all activities and boat transfers without hassle. I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who will listen. ”

Multi-culture is Borneo. I felt safe and relaxed. The guides were knowledgeable and more than happy to share their knowledge as well as answering our questions. The food was always fresh with more than enough food served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was a fantastic holiday. ”

The tour was very well planned and went very well. The accommodation was excellent and the excursions were all well organised and very interesting. We found Borneo to be a fascinating country with a huge range of wildlife and plants.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip even more memorable than we had expected. He was very considerate and funny and helpful. The driver Jeffrey was also very kind and a pleasure to be with. ”
