Here's what our friends have to say...

“Sepilok & Turtle Island Selingan”

I booked my tour on-line through ABC tours and I have to say I was impressed with the service. From the understanding of our requirements for the trip to organising it and the manner in which it was done.

Our guide was Rusli (Bruce Lee) he was on time, kind and very professional. He shared my passion for wildlife and we had plenty to talk about on route to the port where we got on a boat to Selingan Island to see the Turtles. The tour itself was fantastic Rusli was very knowledgeable about the turtles and the isalnd and it was very well organised. Allowing us time to relax as well and take in the beautiful surroundings. By far one of the most beautiful places I have ever laid my eyes on and I would love to return one day.

After our tour was completed and we head back to the main port we stopped off at Sepilok orang-utan sanctuary. Again Russli was superb pointing out wildlife we no doubt would have missed if he hadn't of been there. I loved our time at the sanctuary and highly recommend it and the wonderful service provided by All Borneo Connection Tours! 5 Star Service!

“Best holiday ever”

After we decided on Sabah for a holiday destination we emailed several local tour companies for an itinerary. Len from ABC replied promptly with an itinerary that fitted perfectly with our time frame and budget. He was also happy to tailor the holiday to best suit our needs.
From the moment we arrived in Kota Kinabalu our holiday progressed faultlessly, our drivers and guides were professional and friendly and everybody we met went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The locations and accommodation recommended by ABC exceeded our expectations, and the food was amazing.
Sabah was a wonderful holiday destination, with truly amazing natural beauty, beautiful people and fantastic experiences, We wish we were still there!
Highly Recommended

“ottima esperienza”

Debbo ringraziare Luca per l'organizzazione di questo viaggio.
Malgrado il brevissimo lasso di tempo a disposizione l'agenzia è stata estremamente competente (e paziente) per esaudire le richieste e ritagliarci un viaggio "su misura".
Ottima organizzazione sia per i voli che per i soggiorni.
Grazie ancora

Hi Herda

Please send our best wishes to the local tour guide Abbas, who is experienced and considerate to all the team members. We all like him very much and he is very respective to his job. When taking jet boat driving really fast way back to chalty from abai river lodge, he always stands in the front deck and look into jungle for animal. we always awakened by the temperaily brake from short nap, and he always found us an animal, and the most impressive one is the real wild orangutan on the way back home!!! We all know thats part of what a local tour guide does, and he is really doing a good job.

Please tell his boss to give him more bonus and forward this mail to his boss and him if possible. We'd like to express our thankful to him.

Finally, thank you, herda, for this great journey arrangement. I'll suggest other people to join your abc tours.

Thank you

“One of the best life experience in wildlife”

This is definitely one of my best life experience ever. We attend 3D2N trip to Turtle island and kinabalu river cruising.
The 1st day night in the Turtle island, on the way to mother turtle laying eggs, the beach we walked was full of green turtles, which are over 1 meter long, lying on the beach swing their legs to dig holes as well as some of them are hatching, Of course, And then we saw those hatched babes in the protection center inside the hatch, they are the newborn to the world. The final high tide is our help to release those small turtle into the sea.
The 2nd day, the river cruising day, I was a bit worried about our little boat would get us attacked by crocodile. But, our tour guide Abbas said the local is getting along well with crocodiles and they even can swing with them without any problems. So with my scared and expected mind, my adventure was unfolded with those incredible animals that we saw in the river side, including crocodile, proboscis, orangutan, horn bill, several types of monkey, snakes, lizard, eagle and so on.
I've never so closed to those animal before.
I'd like to thank to our tour guide, Abbas, who is the best one I've ever met. He has a great eyes in searching for animals during the river cruising and we always in the head among all the boats. He introduces very clearly to us about all the animal behavior and how they interact in the great mother nature. That really increases our knowledge.

“Wonderful company”

We worked closely with Luca to plan a trip through Sabah, and it was brilliant. He gave great advice, organized perfect transfers, arranged outstanding guides for us -- everything went off seamlessly and we saw an incredible diversity of wildlife and birds with terrific guides. He took the time to understand our goals and made sure that the trip went exactly as planned. Highly recommended!

“Excellent tour company”

I first thought of going to Borneo in January 2014 and like most people I looked on Trip advisor for ideas. The one tour company that cropped up was ABC tours so I decided to get in contact with them. I wanted to do 6 or 7 tours so I just E-mailed them with where I wanted to go and see, they then sent me a concise itinerary pretty quickly. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and I changed my mind a couple of times. After deciding what was best suited for me I had to postpone my original October tour due to certain reasons. I then contacted ABC 8 months later to say I wanted to now go in May 2015. They had kept my original itinerary on file and were as pleasing to deal with then as they were 8 months ago. Even after I paid the money they were still prompt in answering any questions I had. If you need advice and help with any tours in Borneo I would definitely recommend ABC tours to assist you in your quest. They are professional, prompt in there replies and easy to deal with. All the guides that were chosen by them were very good English speakers, very knowledgeable of their work, very enthusiastic and very punctual. All qualities that made the experience that much more enjoyable. Also the choice of accommodation was above what you would normally expect for a packaged tour. Once again, if it is help and advice you are looking for then I would choose ABC tours.

Hi Herda and Michela,

I would just like to thank you for my recent trip to Borneo. You made the organising and arranging a painless affair which made the trip more enjoyable.

The choice of accommodation was above what I expected from a pre arranged tour. The Jesselton was a good choice and I would recommend you keep this hotel for the future. The Marriott at Mulu was exceptional considering the location and Mataking Island was a pretty good spot also.

I would also like you to convey my gratitude to the guides selected. I'm sorry I am unable to remember the one for Kota Kinabalu (Oliver or Mr Oliver, I think) Augustine for Maliau Basin, Andie for Mulu National Park, Esrail for Tabin and Bennie for Kinabatangan. All were friendly and knowledgable. Above all they were all punctual, which is a rarity these days. Please convey my thanks to these guys and anyone else that was involved with my tours.

Once again, thank you. I would definitely recommend your tour company for those seeking a tour of Borneo.

bonjour Soléne

nous voilà de retour en France depuis 2 semaines et le temps m'a manqué pour vous envoyer un petit mail.

tout d'abord , pour vous dire que les 3 jours passés sur la riviére Kinabatangan se sont bien déroulés : tout était bien organisé , depuis le départ en avion jusqu'au retour

Lodges agréables ( surtout Sepilok lodge , magnifiquement bien situé dans la verdure ) , repas corrects et nos guides très professionnels .

Ce fut trois jours superbes , où nous avons pu apprécier, la ballade sur la rivière , les animaux . Nous avons pu voir un orang outan dans la forêt , des éléphants pygmées sur les bords de la rivière , des probioscis en groupe et de magnifiques oiseaux ...

Merci pour nous avoir aidé à faire ce périple

a une prochaine fois , je pense l'an prochain pour d'autres découvertes ..

j’espère que vous pourrez prendre un peu de temps avec votre mari pour découvrir votre jolie région du Sabah !

Cara Michela,

tempo di organizzazione viaggi e ci ricordiamo di te...:)
Innanzi tutto ti mando qualche foto ricordo del nostro viaggio di nozze, che tra i vari punti toccati ha incluso il meraviglioso Eskaya Beach Resort di Panglao Island!!
Ancora una volta ti devo ringraziare perchè ci hai dato un preziosissimo consiglio e quella è stata una tappa davvero memorabile..posto meraviglioso, resort splendido e ad altissimo livello, spiaggia perfetta e immersioni 10 e lode!

Grazie davvero!
Ma tornando a noi, stiamo iniziando ad organizzare il viaggio estivo e per quest'estate stavamo pensando all'Indonesia.

Come ben sai non siamo amanti di itinerari troppo turistici...anzi siamo proprio alla ricerca del vero, tranne per quanto riguarda l'ultima parte di vacanza cheè quella dedicata al mare ed al relax.
Stavamo pensando a Kalimantan e Sulawesi,ed il sogno sarebbe chiudere a Raja Ampat.

So che tu organizzi viaggi in Kalimantan e che ci puoi dare indicazioni anche sul resto dell'indonesia...ci piacerebbe sapere se possiamo organizzare qualche bel trekking e un giro interessante che includa anche belle immersioni!
Ci aiuti?

Ti mandiamo tanti cari saluti!!

“Perfect Borneo Tour”

My wife and wanted to go to Borneo and experience some rainforest and some local Culture. We didn't know very much about travelling on Borneo so we contacted ABC tours for the trip. I usually use local travel agencies for my vacations, I do not understand why I would want to book activities in Malaysia through an agency, on the wrong side of the World, in Sweden. Anyway, the corresponcance with Michela at ABC tours was very good. We soon had a concept which I felt would fit us perfectly. 18 Days, including some beach (Gaya Island), Brunei, Kota Kinabalu and a lot of Rainforest experiences! All customized for us and with private guides! Once in Malaysia Everything worked super smooth. All Guides have been absolutely fantastic, all transfers between Airports and resorts/lodges/hotels have been on time and very safe. The selection of places to go has been spot on according to what we wanted. I would like to recommend ABC tours for anones Borneo vacations. Thank you Michela for your efforts!
Also...If you decide to travel to Borneo and want some rainforest experiences, make sure to include Danum Valley in your Itinerary. That Place is as Close to paradise as you ever will get!
