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

Dear Michela!

Back at home since 2 days I want to thank you again for organisation and controlling my tour. As said in the subject it was really outstanding in every respect. I was very surprised to be picked up at KK Terminal 1 and Lamram brought me to Terminal 2. We have a saying in Germany. " that was the dot on the i", when we want to express something was EXCELLENT!!!

Feedback:
The commitment of CPH TRAVEL AGENCIES (S) was very good. My guide was Tony a helpful, well-informed man and cook (he had to cook dinner in the longhous with the Ibans). We spoke already about Scott. A "litlle bit disorganized" , but so kind and so likeable that you cannot be crossed with him. Guide was Richard, very in tune with nature and a skilful man; so to speak: "multi-purpose". There is a good living in Bario, Scott will stay in my mind and I would have liked to stay there a few days longer.

TROPICAL ADVENTURE TOURS & TRAVEL: ok in every respect.

S.I. TOURS Sdn. Bhd.: made a great effort; guide was Aurey; worked his way up from fisherman and peasant; he knew a lot about the country and its people; very helpful and a lot of loving attention

TABIN WILDLIFE HOLIDAYS: couldn´t be better

ACOMMODATION:
Harbour View: hardly to believe that it is "only" a *** stars hotel; can be recommended; Longhouse Lemanak river: kind poeple; mattress on the floor; mosquito-net;
Mega Hotel: very professionell; kind service; well equipped
Ngimat Ayu House: you know it
Homestay Pa Lungan: very clean; good beds; very kind family; Davids wife is a very good cook;
Royal Mulu Resort: kind service; good breakfast and dinner; handsomely equipped rooms
Jesselton Hotel: you know that
Abai Jungle Lodge, Riverside Lodge and Tabin Wildlife Reserve: like Royal Mulu Resort

A very good idea to take hotels in the centre of the towns.

Kindest regards, to your husband as well, Armin

Hi Hasma,

Here are some of the landscape shots i took at Mt. Kinabalu. Again, thank you for assisting me. My visit here at Kota Kinabalu would not have been this memorable if it wasn't for your help. You can check out the album at my Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/franz.alayon). If you find some of the shots good, ABCTours can use them to promote its Mt. Kinabalu packages (Just don't forget to acknowledge me, ok? *smiles*).

Best regards,

Hi Michele

On behalf of Cathy, Barbara, Jenny and myself I would just like to thank you so much for all the assistance that you gave us during our tour of Borneo. We really had a lovely holiday and were just so sorry that we did not get to have dinner with you and your husband in that beautiful Hyatt Hotel. We were stuck in a bit of a grotty place where the food was almost inedible.

Everything which you arranged was so lovely and it was just unfortunate that our internal flights were both either cancelled or delayed. The guides were just fabulous. Bennie was always singing and was a really happy person, full of fun and information. Dean from Dannum Valley needs to be highly recommended as he was just super and very informative. Very considerate and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The guide - Sallihin from Kuching was also absolutely delightful. He was always smiling, a fountain of knowledge, and very funny. Even at 4.30 a.m. he was full of fun and could rattle off statistics about the Country as well as answering any question we asked him. He insisted on seeing us right through the Security and walked us right up to the Gate before he gave us a big wave and a smile. What a lovely person he is and comes highly recommended for your future guests. The only guide that we felt did not live up to the standard of the other 3 guides was Glen from River Lodge. He was not very helpful and was not forthcoming with information unless we asked him something.

I can only say thanks again for all the arrangements you made and we would recommend your Company to any of our friends who would want to travel to Borneo. We were just so fortunate to choose your Company as we did not know anything about any of the Agents on the Internet. It was just a stab in the dark and it all worked out so well for us.

Thanks again

Kind Regards

“Pretty good and comprehensive”

I went to Sabah between 17-21 Sep 2013 as I was interested to do the via ferrata Mountaintorq atop the Mt Kinabalu. Overall, was very pleased with the service rendered to me by ABC tours especially Hasma from the company who was very patient, understanding & prompt in responding to me for several times between May to Aug when I was deciding on the trip and the tour itinerary. I told them that I also wanted the white water river rafting which they arranged with Riverbug Asia. Overall, no complaints about this agency and would be pleased to recommend this agency to others.

“Give them a shout and they'll sort you out”

This tour company are one of the best I’ve worked with. I was a little concerned upon arriving at Kuching airport that we might be left stranded. I should have had more faith. Sure enough, the guide was waiting there for us - on time. As was every other driver we dealt with during the tour. At no stage was a driver late and they kept to a pretty strict schedule. Incredibly organised and this set the tone for the rest of the trip. They kindly put together a bespoke package and included everything I asked for. The accommodation was to the standard we were looking at and the tours were as advertised. No unpleasant surprises. I can’t recommend them highly enough and would like to thank Len and the team for all your help in getting the trip organised and booked up. If you can’t find a tour that you’re happy with – then get in touch with them with your interests and ideas – they’ll put something decent together for you.

Hi Len,

No worries – thanks for your assistance with organising everything.

Pick-ups were always on time and guides were great. All went very well!

Really enjoyed Kuching. Just a shame we weren’t able to stay a bit longer.

Hope you had a good break.

Cheers,

“Borneo con Naturalis”

Abbiamo scelto Naturalis per il tour del Borneo per il nostro viaggio di nozze. Abbiamo fatto il tour "tailor made" di 6 notti a Batang Ai e Kinabatangan, per finire con una settimana splendida a Lankayan.
Organizzato bene nonostante le lunghe distanze da coprire per visitare anche solo una cosa (ad esempio le longhouse). Ci è piaciuto molto la guida che abbiamo avuto a Kuching/Batang Ai che oltre ad accompagnarci ci ha raccontato un sacco di cose su come vivono le persone in Borneo, la storia del monte Kota Kinabalu, la flora e la fauna locale; aver condiviso il pranzo con loro e con gli abitanti della longhouse è un'esperienza che non si dimentica. Dopo questi giorni ce ne siamo andati ricchi di nuove esperienze e pensieri. Nella seconda parte del viaggio siamo stati molto fortunati perchè siamo riusciti a intravedere un grande orango maschio nel Kinabatangan e, durante la visita alle grotte di gomantong, una femmina di orango con il piccolo che hanno fatto fuori tutti i frutti di un albero sopra le nostre teste. E poi Lankayan...che dire...spettacolare! Fare il bagno con le tartarughe, assistere alla deposizione delle uova in piena notte, un mare con dei colori che non abbiamo trovato neanche alle Maldive...ottimo per concludere il viaggio di nozze.

Hi Mr Len

We have a safe and great trip in KK.

The hotel that you have recommended, Gaya Centre is a good location that is very near to eating places. We didn't make use of the extra bed as the twin beds are sufficient for us.

We have enjoyed the Canopy walk despite the heavy downpour.

Next is the Mamutik island that we have also enjoyed swimming n snokeling too.

We do appreciate the tour guides and the drivers during our trip.

And we do also really appreciate of your arrangement n assistance for our trip too.

We will definitely to look upon your office again for our next trip in KK.

Thanks a lot!
