Welcome to Sabah, otherwise known as Malaysian Borneo, a land renowned for its natural splendours and fascinating ethnic heritage. As you will discover upon arrival, there is no shortage of adventures to be had in Sabah. Begin your journey from the region's capital, Kota Kinabalu, with a private tour that will show you the many treasures of Malaysian Borneo.

Your local guide can offer a range of once in a lifetime experiences, and customize any itinerary to suit your personal travel interests. Take a boat trip through the mangrove reserve of the Klias Wetlands, and try to spot the elusive proboscis monkeys. In the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center you can experience the magical giant apes up close in their natural habitat. Hikers may want to climb the majestic peak of Mt. Kinabalu and watch the sun rise from its summit. For a more relaxed day, head out to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and sunbathe on its sandy beaches.

We know you'll enjoy your private Kota Kinabalu 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.
