This was a fantastic introduction to Brunei. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially the visit to the water village. Our guide was very relaxed and had a great sense of humour.
This was a fantastic tour! It was nice to visit an actual house located in the water village where we had afternoon tea and snacks. The tour guide was also very accommodating, knowledgeable, and very well informed. My husband and I also wanted to see the Proboscis monkeys not offered in this tour and unfortunately the Proboscis monkey tour was sold out through this tour company. However, our tour guide was able to give us helpful information regarding the water taxi in order to go see the monkeys on our own. Lunch was buffet style and seemed to reflect the local cuisine well it was also very delicious. It was overall a very pleasant tour and we would recommend this to anyone looking to hit all of the major highlights in Bandar Seri Begawan.
Small tour group 4 in aircon people mover car. Excellent three course lunch with 5 main dishes. Very good and safe tour operator. Would highly recommend if you want to get a good look at the Burnei capital. Pick up was punctual and dropped back to hotel around 4pm
