The capital city's highlights, a river tour by boat and unique wildlife all in a day!


On my personal tour, you'll see a slice of our local life as we explore Bandar Seri Begawan (Brunei's capital) and see some of it's majestic structures. Highlights include the world famous S. O. A. S. Mosque, Royal Regalia Museum, His Majesty's Palace (viewable from the outside only except during Hari Raya festival), plus a river tour including local wildlife and the largest water village in South East Asia.

This day long tour also extends past the city into the Brunei river, with boat rides and an opportunity to see Borneo's unique proboscis monkeys. Other wildlife we may see include freshwater crocodiles, monitor lizards and possibly the majestic hornbills and other magnificent birds.

It's your private tour, so we can view whatever you want, when you want! My proposed itinerary is for guidance, but if you fancy doing or seeing something else, why not drop me a line and let me know how I can help you make the most of our day together.

For more than 4 guests, then please contact me for a customised tour.
