Irene was outstanding! She organised a fantastic tour for us showing all the highlight of Brunei as well as sharing a lot of knowledge about her country. We enjoyed visiting the water village and having local experiences as well as seeing the key sights such as the palace, mosques etc. She organised a special treat for my birthday which was a lovely touch. We had a fantastic day in Brunei with Irene and we highly recommend her as a tour guide!

Irene is amazing! Loved the whole day she planned for me, especially the visit to a water village home. What a treat! And her tour wasn't just X place, Y building--she knew a ton about Brunei's history, culture and people, making the day so interesting. She answered my endless questions thoughtfully. Plus she knew the best spots for pictures. :) She is super knowledgeable, professional & friendly. It was like having a friend show me around her hometown. I feel so lucky to have found Irene! Thanks!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Heather! I enjoyed the day as much as you did xx

Had great time with Irene on this day trip. She has great knowledge of the history and is very informative and very happy to share the stories of Brunei and the places we visited. With me being alone she took us around in her car which made the transit between the places a breeze. I thoroughly enjoyed the city on water, mangroves, monkeys, home visit, mosques, government architecture as well as the lunch we had. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone going to Brunei. Thanks Irene!

Irene was great! She was knowledgeable and helpful, and chauffeured us around everywhere we wanted to go. She was flexible and happy to amend the itinerary in accordance with the weather, so that we could do everything. It was great having a local explain the local culture etc, really helpful, and provided us with fascinating insights. Irene even pointed out the Sultan of Brunei as he drove past in a car - fantastic! Irene was a fun person to be around. I definitely recommend using her expertise.

Irene had the unenviable task of showing us around Brunei during the public holiday of Hari Raya when most sight seeing places were closed. However, Irene made the tour interesting and included a Hari Raya visit to one of the families on a boat house - a unique Bruneian experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leigh x
