Everything with this tour went very smoothly. The pick up, meeting the tour guide Rex, who was extremely knowledgable, the hike, zip line etc was great. The bbq on the other island was lovely. There were lots of tourists and the facilities there were very basic. Overall a fun experience.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2016

This tour is not value for money. The price shows as from 48.20 but it cost 261.52 total for 2 of us. The zip line ride was fantastic, but I dont see how this tour warrants the price. This was a private tour so just me and my friend.We were picked up from the hotel by a private mini bus, and taken to the port where we had to wait 30 mins, being told there were more people coming for the boat. The boat took us to the island, where we had 2 guides who walked us through the island. The walk was fine, but felt rushed by the lead guide. The other guide, a woman seemed much less pressed for time and took more time for us. The lead guide also had a bit of a patronising manner, which didnt help, and spent a lot of time on his phone. At one point I heard a bird singing and asked what it was, to which he replied 'a bird' ! The zip line process worked well and the boys in charge were fabulous, very calming and patient, I was a little nervous of heights climbing mount Kinabalu a few days earlier certainly helped me be more comfortable !. The zip went over water from one island to another - fabulous. Next was lunch in a VERY tourist area. It was a resort on the beach, absolutely packed with holiday makers. We were shown a menu on the wall and told we could choose anything. There was only one veggie choice for me, which tasted fine, veg spagetti, and a soft drink included. We has about 30 mins of free time before we had to get the boat back to the port back in Kota KInabalu. Although nothing to do with the tour, I was shocked at how much rubbish, plastic bottles etc are in the sea and shore lines in Borneo. During the boat ride back to the port, the rubbish in the sea is very visible. Back at the port, the mini bus was there to take us back to the hotel.
In all, the zip line was great, and not a bad tour but definitely over priced.
