Tour was informative, enriching and interesting. Our guide, Grace was simply amazing; she’s warm, engaging and knowledgeable; she immersed herself in sharing the history of Borneo Railway, kk and Papar. She would often enthusiastically recommended to us to try the many local produces which we gamely enjoyed. Lots of fun and laughter throughout. We appreciated the tour very much.
