Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The guided snorkeling day tour by borneo dreams travel and tour was amazing. We were a family of 3 adults (2 non swimmers) and 2 children on this trip. Alex and Asri were our guide and they were superb! Both of them were very knowledgeable and briefed us of the do's and dont's on this trip, prioritising our safety at all times. The snorkeling spots chosen were away from crowded tourist areas, therefore we could get the maximum enjoyment out of this tour. Alex and Asri were also very patient and supportive towards the non swimmers in my group, helping us overcome our fear and apprehension, therefore making it a pleasurable snorkeling experience. The captain of the boat, Mr.Azmi was very helpful in getting us on and off the boat safely, as well as navigating choppy areas of the sea, ensuring a comfortable and safe boat ride to the snorkeling spots. I highly recommend this snorkeling trip with borneo dreams travel and tour, for anyone looking for a fun filled, enjoyable and safe snorkeling experience. Alex and Asri. you guys are simply the best at what you do. It has been our privilege to have such an amazing snorkeling experience with both of you as our guide. A massive thank you from all 5 of us.

    Except for the rain the whole experience was great and value for money. Excellent guide “Suliman” was both knowledgeable and entertaining. We got to see the proboscis monkey and lots of fireflies after rain showers which stopped.

    We had a good time during our experience. Pick up and drop off was smooth and there was good communication with us before we started. The fireflies were amazing and the proboscis monkeys were so interesting. The beach and sky mirror was stunning. The guides were great in helping to take some amazing pictures.

    Tour guide Joel was very informative. Great fun for the family. Love the mt Kinabalu views and glad to be able to catch rafflesia blooming. Canopy walkway and the hike up was nice too. Lunch yummy and interesting with local produce and spices.

    I had a very good time as I am a beach person and in Manukan I could sunbathe and swim for a while. It was very relaxing! Also special thanks to Zack, my tour guide, who is extremely kind and attentive, and TYH for being so effective and professional.

    We were not expecting a guided tour - nor the obligatory planned transport - having previously visited the Cultural Village at Damai, outside Kuching. So we booked the tour through our hotel, were picked upon a small mini-van and drove out to Miri Miri. The guild es all seemed to be excellent, based on our guide and those we over-heard. The different tribal houses were interesting and sufficiently varied. The additional exhibits were actually in many ways more fascinating - cooking, making alcohol, etc - with samples for the visitors. Lunch was also included and was much enjoyed by all. Well worth the day out, and although we aren’t “tour” people, the level of organisation was unobtrusive and the half day trip very enjoyable.

    A good tour to see the Proboscis Monkey endemic to Borneo. Quite a drive from our hotel ~ 2 hours (would be quicker but for the roadworks along the way)

    A tour along the river to see 3 types of Monkey including Proboscis, Macaque and silver languor. Also a tree snake swimming across the river. Many varieties of birds. A stop for a buffet dinner then after dark another cruise along the river to see fireflies in the trees.

    Fireflies sparkled like stars along the riverbanks.

    Another ~2 hour journey back to the hotel.

    Left hotel @ 2 pm and returned @ 9 pm

    We started off with bad weather when travelling up to Kundasan. Glad the sky cleared up and the view was amazing. The experience was great and the ice cream from the dairy farm was yummy too! Thanks to our guide Hector.

    BBQ lunch at Sapi Island the best! Beautiful islands, a bit crowded but it's okay due to weekend, snorkel set free to use, book early to avoid disappointments

    Fantastic day. Well organised and clear communication leading up to our trip. The forecast was for bad weather so we were advised of change to programme which gave us best chance of getting our two dives in before weather turned.
    2 of our party had tried scuba discovery before, 1 hadn’t and felt level of tuition was suitable for us all to enjoy.
    Mira was our guide/instructor for the day and was knowledgeable and looked after us all well.

    We were fortunate to have great weather on the day. Enjoyed the snorkelling by the boat. Saw loads of colourful fish, and I even saw clown fish. Our tour guide, Vince, was punctual, friendly, chatty, and gave us some information on things to do and see in KK. He also was great in informing us with the itinerary of the day.

    Did my 2 day open water course and it was amazing. My instructor, Zarul, was very thorough in his teaching and made sure my buddy and I understood the safety skills before progressing with each part. Definitely recommend this company for anyone looking to take their ow course!

    Our tour was part of Tripadeal from Australia for 10 days. Brendan the tour leader was fantastic, so informative and funny, and passionate about his country. We really missed him when we did the 2 days add-on to Kuala Lumpur. It was great to see the different varieties of monkeys and orangutangs learning skills to allow them to go back and fend for themselves in the wild. The visit to see the Sun Bears was a highlight for me, and to hear about the wonderful work being done there

    I booked a 2 day tour for 2, (me with my Mom). My 80 year old Mom and I enjoyed the trip very much.

    Joel , our guide throughout the 2 days was very attentive, turned up on time on every occasion and very patient and courteous. He made sure everything went on time and smoothly, from meal times to checking in and out , and driving the full journey.

    He was also very well read and knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna, including the Latin names of the different plant species - something which could only be acquired if you have a deep interest.

    I would certainly recommend him for trips to Sabah, and will look for him to guide future trips there.

    All the Best to you Joel and Thank You So Much for a magnificent trip. My Mom was talking about your steady driving skills just now when she narrated the trip to my sister.

    Best Regards
