Irene C.

Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Muara, Brunei

I am a friendly, outgoing, outdoor enthusiast with more than 6 years experience in managing organised tours for both groups and individuals.

I love my country and can't wait to show you all it has to offer, including stuff you won't find in any guidebook! Up to February 2020, I have now had the pleasure of welcoming guests from 51 different countries - and I hope to welcome many more.

Every tour can be a unique experience, so whether you're into city sightseeing, nature trekking, exploring history and culture, spotting the unique Borneo birds, partaking in adventure sports in our pristine waters, shooting wildlife photography, trying your hand at traditional basket weaving, experiencing blowpipe with my jungle friends, seeing 500 year old archaeology digs, and trying out new & unique jungle foods - or simply meeting new people - I look forward to sharing my knowledge and introducing you to the real Brunei and my friends from the many different cultures we have here.

Amongst the tours that I offer, you'll of course find the "normal" day and half day city sightseeing tours (which I aim to make much more than a normal experience), but for those looking for a bit more, I have what I hope are some more distinctive and different offerings. And of course if you'd like to mix and match elements of one tour with another, I am more than happy to come up with a custom itinerary, just for you!

When I am not taking guests out on tours, I am always exploring my country to meet new people and discover new experiences, increasing participation in our cross-community endeavour Kommunihub, where we share our different cultures and are always learning new things.

If there's something you would like to do, but isn't listed, then simply drop me a line to ask - I have given a number of completely bespoke tours - both around Brunei and even further afield, if that's what you would like.

My priority is to make sure you receive the greatest hospitality in our "Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures" - and believe me, a majority of my guests say they were not expecting that my country is so relaxed and multi-cultural - and most of all, that you have a fun and memorable time : ).

Thanks so much for reading my bio!
