Irene was pleasant, spoke excellent English, and very knowledgeable. She is a native of Brunei, and gave us interesting perspective on life in this small bot prosperous, happy country. We recommend Irene highly as an excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kevin.Glad that you guys enjoyed it.
Irene made my Brunei trip. She is very knowledgeable and entertaining. As I was not sure where I should go for a half-day tour, she took me to most of all the must-see places in Brunei. I was so lucky enough to see a big family of monkey in the mangrove thanks to her and the boat driver too. Her trip was not only taking me to the famous sightseeing spots but educate me a lot - economics, government, Muslim culture, people and history of Brunei. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was wonderful to meet you Tomoko and thanks so much for your kind words. Yes indeed, hope to see you again soon : )

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awhh ... A wonderful day well spent and so very enjoyable. Thank you,Sylvia &Todd! xx
Our Brunei tour with Irene was excellent! Irene has a wonderful knowledge of Brunei and it's history and brought this to life in our tour. We particularly enjoyed the boat trip through the mangrove forest where we saw the proboscis monkeys and to the water village where we had the opportunity to visit one of the houses. Our visit to Brunei was a highlight of our trip. Thank you Irene.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Corinna, I'm so glad that Brunei was a highlight of your trip. Thank you for spending a wonderful day with me :)

Irene went out of her way to customize the tour and fulfill my wishes even though I only had half a day. I ended up covering everything I wanted plus getting a very local experience like visiting a home in the water village and eating local food! Thank you Irene!
