We were extremely happy with our tour and guide! With the small amount of time we had, we had everything fitted in for us so we didn't miss out on anything. The local knowledge was great and experience of all our tour stops was of a great advantage! Thank you for our tour, it was the highlight of our Borneo trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for visiting sandakan and I hope I will be able to meet up with BIG ADDEN in the future. Please spread the words to others and keep traveling. Take care . Zahari Joe

Couldn't have gotten a better guide!! Made the tour great fun, while learning a lot throughout the day both about the animals and the local area. Even took us to the Australian War Memorial on the way home which being Australian was a great and humbling experience. Couldn't recommend Joe more!!

Date: Apr 1/18

Joe Zahari is an excellent guide and was able to organise a great trip for us. He is highly knowledgeable, energetic and enthusiastic about his job. We travelled to the Kinabatangan, Deramakot and Sepilok forests and saw nine Orang-utan in the wild and many other animal and bird species. This is a great result given the dense forests of Borneo and was due to Joe's experience of the routines of the wildlife. Joe is also passionate in support of the local cultures and great company for the visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trevor and family members..thank you so much for your kind feedback,i really apreciate it a lots from the bottom of my heart.And it was an honoured having a man like you came to Borneo not one time but a few .And i've learnt a lot of things from you ; Insects and Palm Oil Industries and etc during the trip together..And i hope i will be seeing you again in the future.. All Zahari's family members sending their hugs to All of you.. Best Wishes & Thank You, zahari

Tour: Firefly and seafarers island tour, Sandakan, Sabah, Malaysia
Date: Aug 31/17

I had such a great experience with Joe Zahari! :-) He is an amazing guide and a very nice man. He is flexible and has unique knowledge not only about the wildlife in Borneo, but also EVERYRHING else a visitor to this Island wishes to know. He took my sister and I on a private tour to Nunuyan Island (great village), later seeing fireflies and having dinner with locals. He arranged pick up and boat for us. He managed to arrange all this within 24 hours (!!) IMPRESSIVE! I will totally recommand him :-)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sara & Veronica..You got many reason to come back; Borneo Clouded Leopard.

Zahari was a wonderful guide. Would highly recommend to all travellers. We seen amazing wildlife and Zahari was able to give us an insight to the Sabah culture which we thoroughly enjoyed. Would not hesitate to book with Zahari a second time. Zahari is also very willing to customise tours. Thank you Zahari!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debbie and family members who had travelled with me..I hope i could show you more..Keep travelling.
