A Must Do in Kota Kinabalu
, Mar 2020
This trip is surely a must do in Kota Kinabalu. The trip was well organized and our driver-guide Nicholas was simply excellent. He was very informative and intelligent. We learned a lot about the nature of the region and in addition we were successful in seeing rafflesia in one of the gardens where Nicholas brought us.
Long trip but amazing place and views
, Jan 2020
Over 2hr drive to the first place bit with a couple of stops and good conversation from our knowledgable driver and guide Sharif (hope I spelt it right) The mountain was amazing, the botanical gardens cool and the markets fun Then another hour to drive to the hot springs which the canopy walk was the only highlight Then over 3hrs to get home Pickup 7:45am back at the hotel by 7pm very long day
Beautiful views and wonderful service

No one else booked this trip on the day my hubby and I did, so it ended up being a private tour. Our tour guide was not only knowledgeable, but also very professional and accommodating. He was able to find out that a few raffalisas were in bloom in the area, and gave us the opportunity to go see them. He provided great insight into the culture of the tribes of the island and their way of life. Highly recommend this trip. Mt. Kinabalu is breathe taking and the trip was well worth the 2 hour drive into the mainland.
Excellent trip had a great view of...
