Did the 4D3N trip incl. turtles island near Sandakan and Kinabantan river trip a couple of weeks ago.

Very well organised.

Quality of food was good - I wasn't expecting much however expectation surpassed.

Saw at least 3 species on the endangered list during river cruise.

Witnessed a green turtle laying eggs during turtle island trip.

Suggest taking plenty of deet!

These guys know what they are talking about and seam vary passionate about wild life.

Go on give it a go go go ......

The team at Borneo dream were able to fill out most of our week in Sabah. The activities were run by top quality guides and at a reasonable price.
I would recommend the team especially for their marine activities where they specialise

“Awesome day diving in TARP”
5 of 5 bubbles
Reviewed December 20, 2016 via mobile
Had an awesome day diving with Borneo Dream in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. My last dive was over 2,5 years ago and it was great the way they handled this. I had my own instructor, Basir, who gave me a quick refresher course in the boat and we started our first dive in shallow water. As soon as I was comfortable we immediately went to deeper water to see the coral and the marine life.

TARP may not be the world's premier diving site, there's still plenty to see and it's conveniently close to KK. Also, in my experience the diving is far better than the snorkelling because you're a bit further from the beach so not so many tourists that damage the coral.

Had an amazing day with these guys. Tried scuba diving once before and hated it but I thought I'd give it another go.
Eugene was amazing, I felt at ease with his instructions and he gave me plenty of time to get comfortable with the experience. He even used my go pro to take some fantastic underwater pictures and video.
Thanks guys for such a fantastic experience.

I completed my PADI Open Water Diving Course with Borneo Dream while in Kota Kinabalu. The whole experience was awesome, and my instructor Basir was great at teaching all the fundamentals of diving. I recommend this course with Borneo Dream extremely highly. I also went on a one day rafting trip organised through Borneo Dream which went very smoothly and was heaps of fun.

had one day fun-diving program for non-certified diver with excellent instructor, Sabri Tenden (#272089), he taught the basic diving skill very clearly, the procedure is very easy to understand and no problem to follow at all, must ask him to be the instructor if possible!~

“Feeling disappointed and cheated, go on your own if you want to visit KK Park”
3 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
I booked a 1 day Kota Kinabalu Park and Hot spring trip with Borneo Dream T&Ts.
On the positive side Luke who booked my trip in their office was professional and quick. The guide for the trip was knowledgeable and the lunch during the trip was much better than I was expecting.
On the negative side when I booked my trip I have asked how big is the group. I always choose smaller tours to have more flexibility. Luke ensured me the maximum size of the transport will be a mini bus. A mini bus (for around 8 people) picked me from the hotel. However, after we stopped in front of another hotel and were asked to switch to a normal large bus (around 25 - 30 people). I felt cheated! But there is nothing you can really do at this point.
The second issue came up during our way to the park. It turned out that one of the families had a flight shortly after 8pm that evening and the return to KK was around 7 to 7.30 according to the schedule. That is irresponsible but not the tour organizer's fault. However, the guide decided to shorten our trip (by 1 hour) without real agreement from the participants! She did not ask if we agreed and I have complained about this to her. We really had to rush through the canopy walk and waterfalls and didn't have enough time to visit anything else. She should have asked that family to get a taxi back to KK (costs around 100 MYR) instead of shortening the whole trip.
The trip itself was ok. Short walk around botanic gardens, lunch, canopy walk and waterfalls. Everything was very rushed so if you can rent a car and go on your own to have more time and enjoy the park.

Dear Gosia,

Thank you for your review of your Kinabalu Park Tour here in Sabah.
We look forward to receiving both positive and negative reviews here at the Borneo Dream team office as it allows us to fine-tune our services on both land and marine trips.

I am glad that you found the booking process to be quick and efficient here at our office. I am equally pleased to read that both the lunch and guide surpassed your expecations,
However I am as equally disappointed as you that the service that was provided at the park was not to your expectations.

It is a public holiday at present here in Sabah, however it is my intention to make contact with our ground team at Kinabalu Park to investigate what actually happened. I shall do this immediately and feed-back my response to you as soon as practicable.

I cannot recall from your conversation upon booking if you are still in Kota Kinabalu Park at present, but our KK office will be open again tomorrow (2nd January) from 0900 to 1800hrs, and every-day except Sundays at this time of year.
If you are indeed still in town, please do come and see us at the office as it would be good to get some face to face feedback from you whilst we investigate this matter.

I once again apologise on behalf of Borneo Dream that you were not 100% satisfied with your trip and do assure you that I shall personally investigate this matter immediately and feed-back my findings to you.

With warmest regards and assuring you of my best attention at all times.

“Honeymoon in Borneo”

We simply can't rate these guys highly enough!

My husband and I went to Kota for our Honeymoon in August 2016 and did our PADI course whilst there with The Borneo Dream team. They were so accommodating when our flight was late and moved our first day times to fit us in with the delay. On top of this they then stayed late to go through a map of Kota with us and point out some good places to go. To top it all off when my husband lost his wedding ring in the sea the team spent nearly an hour hunting for it - and retrieved it!!! The diving was so much fun, and the island where we had lunch everyday (included) were paradise.

The whole team were friendly, knowledgeable, patient and reliable. So much so that we then booked a mountain biking trip with them too. Again, couldn't have asked for a nicer and more enthusiastic team (be prepared to get very VERY hot though!) They picked us up from our hotel, provided bikes and refreshments and took our bags for us. On the way around they showed us the local fruits which they picked for us and was rounded off by a superb lunch.

These guys really made our holiday, thank you!

One of the best diving trip we ever had and that's because of Borneo Dream team professionalism and hospitality. Very well trained team with incredible friendly behaviour and they always welcome you with a smile.
They also organised for us a river cruise trip to see long nose monkeys and fireflies and it was amazing and well organised.
I really recommend Borneo dream to any traveler to Kota Kinabalu.
