Irene was a wonderful guide! She knows so much about the country and is so personable! You really get to experience a lot of Brunei in a short period of time. She allows all the time you need to spend at all the sights and has lots of information to share about each sight. If you're trying to decide which tour to choose, I'd highly recommend this one!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for a fun time and so lovely to meet you!
We had a great tour day with Irene. She showed us all the highlights and told a lot about Brunei. Especially liked the boat tour, spotting the monkeys and visiting a water village house.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for our lovely day together, it was a pleasure to show you and Rick around. Hope your trip to Sandakan is great too!

Irene was exactly as she says, friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable and very easy to get on with. The afternoon tour on the first day was all that we wanted and imagined, great. The second day, going south to Seria and Kuala Belait, was fantastic, bringing back a lot of memories and managing to find the houses I lived in with my parents. The whole trip was value for money. She is definitely someone I would recommend.

I had such a great time with Irene in Brunei! As a solo woman traveling alone I was a bit concerned at first but Irene made me feel super safe and comfortable the whole time. The whole day was tailored to me and my wishes so I could really get the most of my stay. Irene also went above and beyond for me and it really felt like I was exploring the real Brunei with an old friend instead of going on a planned tour. I had such a great time that I even changed my flight to stay an extra day :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was lovely to spend days with you Cornelia!

Irene provided a wonderful unique perspective to Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. We very much enjoyed the water village, Kampong Ayer and the home visit that was not on the schedule. Seeing the local culture first-hand is one of the reasons we travel.

Irene is a superb guide. Informed, pleasant, charming and energetic. Irene was a delightful guide for Brunei. She catered the tour to my particular interests and had the experience and skill to time the tour perfectly -- for example to catch a lovely mosque exactly at sunset for superb photographs. Cannot recommend highly enough. My only regret is that should have booked her for a second day to explore the lovely country in even greater depth.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David ,hope all is well . Thank you so much for choosing me as your Guide . Regards , Irene
I highly highly recommend Irene!! We hired her for 1 full day 8 hrs. Definately worth every penny! This was really a custom tour! We haven't been back to Brunei for 40yrs since we immigrated to Vancouver Canada. It was memorable home coming indeed. I had very specific locations we needed to go and Irene delivered!! Plus more. Thank you Irene and Simon, the driver for giving us the best experience we will cherish forever. If we come back, will use your services again. Evelyn, Mary, and Vivien
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Evelyn , this tour was very special to me. Being able to help trace your parents history was very rewarding .We enjoyed it as much as you do . Thanks again Evelyn , Aunty Mary and Vivien. We hope to see you in the near future x
Thanks to Irene, we've got a great impression about natural, cultural, architectural and even gastronomic sides of Brunei within very limited time we had in the country. Strongly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrew!
