An unusual and enjoyable trip.
We had a really nice time - what an adventure. The final destination was not that interesting but the train journey itself with breakfast and lunch was something very special. Certainly would recommend this trip.

Excellent day out with a chance to get out in the country. Very good service from the lovely crew and the food was quite good. A few nice stops on the way with a chance to visit local markets and temples.
A very interesting and fun tour. A must do. The service and food was top notch.
My sisters and I were delighted to be transported to the bygone days of steam train travel. the north Borneo railway tour is extremely well organized. The staff were very pleasant, perhaps a bit more theatrics would contribute to the atmosphere. Temple visit was interesting and would have liked a longer stay. Papar was disappointing,the market even though it is authentic local market, is quite dirty and of little appeal. the food served for luncheon was very tasty and being served in the tiffen was lovely. all in all a fun experience.

loved the train, food was way better than expected, disappointed in the general sites along the route. Did not realize it just ran along the road
The experience was unique and most enjoyable. The food on the train was memorable and the service from the staff was extraordinary. However you must bank on a whole day because the delays caused by the train having to build up steam made the trip a whole day trip, not one that ends at 1.40pm.
The train trip was really good until the return from Papar. The steam engine lost power on several occasions (each lasting 20 minutes) so we arrived back at KK very late.
