David T.

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

"SELAMAT DATANG!!!" -or- WELCOME!!! I started guiding in late 90's, by showing places of interest to my friends and relatives who came to visit and since, I have decided to expand my hospitality and my sense of adventure to people from abroad with ToursByLocals.

I am active in bringing people for wildlife encounter, river cruising along Kinabatangan River Area, World Heritage Site Kinabalu Park, experience the trills of Borneo jungle and pristine island beaches of Sabah.

I love to meet and participate with people who are coming to visit Sabah Borneo, eager to show them what great places and things WE have here, cultures and food delicacies to be digested, past history and present events to enjoy, with natural surroundings of rain forest and much more!

I can organize and guide special interest groups (big or small) tailored to their needs, for example, Jungle-Trekking, Wildlife Spotting and Bird-Watching, Island & Beaches (Diving & Turtle Watching), Custom Tribal Cultures and Journey Overland in Sabah. For any special request(s) or customize any of the tour packages, please feel free to contact me.

Secure, Safety and Service are my trademarks of a great tour and time here in Sabah, Borneo when you visit with me, as your friend and guide.
