The group was also fabulous, a great mix of personalities who all got on and helped each other up (and down) Mt. Kinabalu. The acccommodation is all pretty basic (as defined by the Basix category) but was mostly clean and actually all added to the experience of mix..."

    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.
