I loved the personal guide that was with us from the start to the end! I decided to do island hopping with my friend and both girls doing island hopping won't be as safe. We had 2 islands included, with packed lunch.

Everything was smooth from the jetty, to the island hops, and the surprise was the lunch!

I assumed it was going to be a local takeaway pack but when we opened, it had a full set that came with side dishes, meat, fruits and desserts.

We only needed to walk and share where we wanted to go or do. There were water sport activities available. We loved Sapi the most as it had more swimming area.

The timing was also quite right, as 3pm came, the clouds began to gather.

From the man handling the boat, to the guide, it was a pleasant experience. I would explore their other offerings when I'm back to Kota Kinabalu.

We went on an island-hopping day trip a couple of weeks ago and Ethan was our guide. From the pick up in the morning till the drop-off time, Ethan made us feel very comfortable. He went out of his way to make sure we had a good experience and his communication and knowledge about the islands and the marine animals surrounding the islands were very insightful. It was an absolute pleasure having him as our guide.

Overall, the experience was rather disappointing. For one of the more expensive tour we signed on, both the planning and execution of the programme was not well done. We were not brief on the itinerary clearly and was just following our guide around aimlessly. To further mention, our guide (shall not name names) was rather inexperienced and unaware of flow of events. Whenever we have a question for her, she would end up going to other guides to ask them instead. Furthermore, the guide just casually inform us that snorkelling equipments are not available (which we paid to include in the tour package). It was not till we demanded a refund then did they bother to transport it to the island…While we have to admit that we did paid to sign on for extra water activities, it was pretty regretful to inform you guys that no advice was given to us that by doing so, we will have no time to snorkel (like we reached the second island at 1.51pm after parasailing and have to leave at 2pm). What was worse is that we have no time to consume our lunches and have no choice but to consume it on the boat back on our way to the main jetty as hunger kicks in. In conclusion, we would like to say it is wiser to visit jesselton point/ jetty to purchase your own tickets and then rent your own equipments on the island as it is definitely more affordable and anyway our guide may have bought the tickets on the day itself LOL (you can also buy on your first day of visit if you are afraid that it runs out). Have fun in Kota Kinabalu!

Hi there , I understand your frustration. Our guide already brief all the itinerary , before depart to another island we already provide the lunch at first island. Due to peak session, the guide actually ask the boat man when will get the snorkelling set for you and departure time to the next island as the boat schedule may vary from time to time. Futhermore, I am very sorry to learn that your tour to Island Hopping didn't met your expectation. Regarding your constructive feedback, we shall definitely look into them, we appreciate the review as these helps us to improve better in our services in meeting to exceed our guests' experiences when touring with us. Thank you.

As a solo traveller I like to book group tours to meet people, however it was just me.
It wasn't even a speed boat, it was a passenger ferry. It transports island guests to different destinations so you are on the ferry for longer than necessary which cuts into your time on the islands.

There was no buffet lunch what so ever, I got cold beans, egg and rice!! It was carried around by the lady for who knows how long. It was inedible. Absolutely tasteless and I was concerned about the length of time between cooking and receiving it. It was given to me in the last hour and a half. I was really looking forward to the buffet lunch, so I only had a piece of fruit for breakfast. I was absolutely starving. I expressed my frustrations and disappointment and was told that they did not book me in for the island buffet lunch. This is one main inclusion of this expensive tour.

It wasn't a tour as such. She literally bought my ticket then I met her 3.5hrs later when we transferred to Sapi island. I could have done this myself, and actually eaten delicious, fresh food at one of the restaurants.
Extremely expensive for what you actually get. It only costs one quarter of this tour price for the tickets. Other parts of Malaysia - Perhentian, Langkawi, Redang Islands only charge 55RM for the same day out, but so much more fun and enjoyable.

The beaches were lovely, nice snorkeling.

Save your cash, don't book this tour. You can do it so easily independently. It was the worst tour I have done in the last six weeks of exploring Malaysia.
I have requested a 75% refund as I was so let down.

Ian had been guided us for today doing island hoping, he didn't bother us unnecessarily and kept us private and ourselves. But he managed all the details and took care of us by letting us know in advance when to do this and that which were exactly what we needed while we were mostly sleeping and busy swimming.

He speaks very good English and cool to talk with, i highly recommend you should do tour with Ian if you are to visit KK.

Ethan was my tour guide today for the Island Hopping tour. The communication prior to the trip was great and kept me informed of the pick-up arrangements. The tour met my expectations and Ethan was a great tour guide.
I would recommend TYH Borneo Tours to any visitor.

The trip is filled with joys and interesting. We went to Sapi Island and Manuka Island, the arrangement is nice and come with packed lunch. Thanks for the friendly and responsible tour guides, helps in arranging our rest area and look up our belonging when lockers is unavailable. Besides the office staff is very nice, that willing to helps us clear all the doubts and inquiries. This make us fully enjoy the sea and wind, we no need to worry about anything, all are well arranged. Thanks for the arrangement.

Our guide was really nice and caring. A++. The only problem is that the island waters are littered with plast and the snorkling is only allowed in shallow reef-free areas.
The islands are beautiful. It's a shame about the conatmination. Again, the guide and tour worked wonders. Thanks TYHBorneo

Got lucky to be on this day trip with perfect weather. There were only two of us and yet the tour went ahead with our own guide Vino. He was very chatty, friendly, and very accommodating to our needs. There was also plenty of time to do whatever we want on the islands. =)
