I booked a day tour with TOUR BY LOCALS and they were most professional when booking.What can I say about our guide Afiq he was amazing.Collected us at airport early morning and dropped us back that evening.We had an action packed day with a most informative guide.We got all the main attractions in and we also had a great lunch included.He was most passionate about the envoirment and very up to date on world affairs. Would highly recommend both to anybody.

We reached Sandakan with a plan but weren't sure on how to go about it. We walked across to the Borneo Sandakan Tours office and were really happy with the service that was provided by their staff. They were really helpful! We did a tour of the Gomantong Caves and the Kinabatangan River Cruise. Gary (our guide) was extremely knowledgable and made sure we had a great time. The Gomantang caves were amazing but we got to see only a small part of it which was disappointing. The Kinabatangan River cruise was a little disappointing because we didn't get to spot any pigmy elephants. We had a great day overall. But felt the tour was a little overpriced compared to all the adventure & sightseeing packages with got from the tour operator in Sarawak.

Gary is a very good and caring guide. Still remember the eco-hotel and Kinabatangan Safari boat ride I went on 6 years ago!

I definitely recommend Borneo Sandakan Tours I booked the day before my 2 day 1 night trip to Kinabatangan, at the Borneo Sandakan Tours office in Sandakan. Everyone from the office was friendly and efficient. I had DP as my driver/guide. He was professional, knowledgeable and great company. My highlights were seeing a mother orangutan with her baby near my room at Myne Travel Resort, seeing the proboscis monkeys on the river cruise and a slow loris during the night safari. If you're looking for a tour company in this area choose this one. They will look after you.
