The group was also fabulous, a great mix of personalities who all got on and helped each other up (and down) Mt. Kinabalu.

    I loved that the trip was dynamic and informative. The day we completed the climb of Mt Kinabalu we as a group would have appreciated having the hot tubs scheduled into the Late afternoon agenda. I really believe the meals could be improved on.

    I liked the tour a lot. Too many buffet meals however and never enough vegetarian choices. Got bitten by bed bugs in the jungle lodge.

    This was a great tour full of experiences that I'll never forget. Some of the highlights include: climbing Mt. Kinabalu, watching sea turtles lay eggs and watching hatchlings make their way back to shore, and of course orangutans. The guide was great and... Read more

  • Marcia9th August 2018
    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
