Malaysia Tours & Trips Reviews

  • "The Malaysia tour was fantastic. Some of the tour highlights were; visiting Turtle Island and seeing Sepilok which was breathtaking. The acccommodation was pretty basic but was mostly clean and I wouldn't stay in a more luxurious accommodation as I feel this would detract from the overall experience. Our tour guides were amazing, knowledgable and passionate. The group was also fantastic as we helped each other in Mt Kinabalu. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to explore Malaysia."
