A Recent Review of this tour

Roy was the best!!! I'm travelling with my mother who uses a motorized scooter. Roy was so patient, loading and unloading walking slower and really showing us all that we could see in the day. If I find myself back in Kota Kinabalu I will call Roy. Great Day. Thank you.
