A fabulous trip for families with children (especially teenagers) with a sense of adventure. Perfect balance of activities and free time with a very experienced guide knowledgeable. Moreover Borneo is a beautiful island with many hidden secrets and visiting in an eco-friendly way is a very special experience. We wouldn't hesitate to revisit and choose a similar holiday elsewhere.

On the Borneo trip we got to see and experience a wide range of conservation projects involving different animals and eco systems. We also got to meet the local people involved in these projects and to interact with them. There was also places where you could relax and just enjoy the scenery.

We thought that seeing Orangutans would be the highlight of this trip but in fact our cookery lesson in a local village and staying in the homestay was. The Malaysian people were friendly, kind, great cooks, and only laughed a little bit at our efforts! The Sun bears also stole our hearts and we could have watched the Orangutans forever! The truly cheeky Monkeys on Survivor Island probably came a bit close for comfort but all added to an amazing and diverse trip which I would highly recommend.

Incredible experience for the whole family. So well looked after by our local leader. Culturally fascinating and wildlife interesting (once accustomed to the bugs and monkeys). Also combined with the outdoor element which was right up our street. We were pleased we booked a group trip after seeing other individual families travelling around who did not get nearly as involved as us in the local life. Great all round trip, but probably best taken if you have a true sense of adventure, a wish to join the group style camaraderie, and a level of fitness to participate fully.

Given Borneo is a hot, humid place, stick with light-weight clothing (quick dry) plus footwear comfortable (tramping boots not required). Handy to take tissues and hand sanitizer.

Very enjoyable trip which suits any age and incorporates activities which most people will be able to participate in. The trip gives good insight into the life and culture of the local villages especially through the home stay. It also will get you very close to the local wildlife.
