Sandakan, Malaysia is a busy harbour city, centred at the entrance to a beautiful, island-studded bay. The city boasts excellent seafood and interesting strolls, but true adventure begins when you leave the city behind to explore the rivers, jungles and volcanic landscape that make Sabah truly "wild." Take a private Sandakan tour and discover Borneo's legendary wilderness with a friendly local guide.

Take a boat trip along the Kinabatangan River and search for proboscis monkeys, brilliantly hued birds, crocodiles and elephants in the region's forest reserves. In the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center you can witness the magical giant apes up close in their natural habitat. Offshore from Sandakan city are the famous Turtle Islands, where visitors are able to snorkel or scuba dive to view rare marine turtles.

Your Sabah guide can offer a range of once in a lifetime experiences, and customize any itinerary to suit your personal travel interests on your private Sandakan tour.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
