“Turtle Island Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2016
The trip was wonderful and we were very well looked after by our guide, James, who provided great information on the way from our hotel to the jetty and also during the whole trip to the island. He also took and forwarded some lovely photos to us which we appreciated. We had tried to book the trip directly but I am so pleased we finally found the dates we wanted through Borneo Dream Tours - although it worked out more expensive, the process was very smooth from beginning to end and we benefitted from James' excellent briefing on the island so our experience was definitely better than if we'd gone independently. I would definitely recommend Turtle Island as an experience - truly unforgettable and our children loved every minute from snorkelling during the day to seeing the turtle lay eggs and actually being able to help release the hatchlings. They are very interested in wildlife and it was wonderful to be able to see an excellent conservation project first hand. If you possibly can fit this into your itinerary, make sure you do!

“First Dive Experience! Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2016
We had a really nice boat trip where I was taken through the basics and did a first dive. The team were smiling and welcoming, and bi-lingual, so we well...It was nice to go by speed boat over the turquoise oceans and also enjoy a rest at a local beach, with a very reasonable cafe (lunch was included). They encouraged us to relax and enjoy! During the dive, the guide showed us some of the species that we might not have appreciated or known about without him. Sabri used the internationally recognised PADI signals and gave instruction well. I recommend it!

“2 Day 1 night turtle island trip”

I booked our tour through Melissa at Borneo Dreams online.
The service is fantastic, I must have emailed, at least 30 times with questions and she was so patient with me.
The trip was amazing our tour guide James was excellent, the food on the island was basic but delicious. One of the guides took us on a snorkeling tour and we saw everything, we wouldn't have gone that far out on our own.
The turtle experience is one myself and daughters will never forget, we saw baby turtles hatching and swim to the water, the mother turtle lay eggs, and then we let baby turtles go into the water at around 11pm.
It is a wonderful program, if you love wildlife I highly recommend it. There is slot of waiting, however if you have a good book the time goes fast.
We will definitely use Borneo Dreams again should we ever come to Sabbah. Hopefully in the next couple of years.
They are professional, know what they are talking about and caring!
I wouldn't use anyone else.

“The best choice of PADI Open Water Diver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2016
Markson was my instructor and he was very nice and patient to teach me all the skills until I understand successfully. All the other crews were very nice too. I was lucky to choose Borneo Dream to have my PADI Open Water Diver.

Completed the scuba discovery dive today and we had such a good time with Sabri, Basir, Eugene and Zul. They were so patient with us and were a lot fun too. We rented a GoPro and Sabri was awesome enough to take the photos and videos whilst we got to grips with learning how to dive. Already looking forward to returning to KK and organising further excursions with them. Special mention to Jones as well who helped book the dive.

“A great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2016
We only had a few days in KK and booked 2 tours with Borneo Dream, which was a really good choice; we did a guided snorkelling tour in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, on which we we saw a lot of the local marine life (many thanks again to Lily and her team for the great time!) and always felt safe and looked after during the tour; the second tour was to the Kinabalu Park (botanical garden, hot springs, canopy walk in Kinabalu Park) and was really informative and adventurous; we even managed to see the rarely blooming Rafflesia, which was a great experience; if you're interested in the local flora, this is a must see; many thanks to Donny, who was really excellent! The Food on both tours was fine as well, and the staff at the Office was very helpful when booking the tours (thanks a lot Jones for your good advice!) Both tours are highly recommended!

“Snorkeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2016
We book a day snorkeling with Borneo Dream and instructor Lily. That day is now added to our list of best memories. The Borneo Dream crew were very nice and helpful. They make me feel comfortable in the water (I'm really scared of it, so big thanks to them).
On that "trip" we saw sharks and turtle and many other that we haven't seen before and it was amazing. Really recommend snorkeling with them.

“A fantastic and memorable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2016 via mobile
I joined a 3 day PADI open water dive course (August 11 – 13, 2016) conducted by Borneo Dream’s crew. I had a fantastic time with the crew (Basir, Amir, Markson, …); they are one funny bunch! I was most impressed with our instructor Eugene. This man is one fabulous person: kind, gentle, patient, knowledgeable … a diving Zen master :-) . I truly learned to take my first scuba diving steps because Eugene properly figured out which skills I wasn’t feeling comfortable with and he made me repeat those until I was. My course mates were newly weds Nick and Faye from the UK. Nick had the misfortune that his wedding ring slipped from his finger while skin diving landing somewhere around 12 meters below us in the ocean. The Borneo Dream crew searched for nearly 1,5 hours and managed to find it. Fantastic job, guys!

Besides the diving course the Borneo Dream team in the office (Melissa, Jones and Luke) also arranged a jungle trip on and near the Kinabangantan river, a mountain bike ride in the Tuaran area, two more dives and climbing Mount Kinabalu for me (I just returned from this trip; a great experience, but my legs are still quite soar). They were most helpful and cheerful in doing so, also helping me out in sorting out the details like flights and accommodation. All trips turned out wonderfully taken care of and I had no worries at all during my stay in Borneo.

Borneo Dream team … thanks for making my holiday in Borneo a very memorable one!!!
