    People and guides are very friendly and with great sense of humor. The traditional dances also engaged the crowd a lot!

    The Borneo Cultural Village Tour didn't give off the most authentic feel but it was informative, and that was enough for us. Our tour guide Wan was very knowledgeable, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the tour overall. Lunch was great!! The Klias River Cruise was beautiful but maybe don't go in December because it usually rains. Didn't get to see a lot of proboscis monkeys because of the weather. Snacks before the cruise were served, and then dinner after. The food was good, but don't expect it to be amazing. If you're simple folk like us, then you'll appreciate it too! The only downside to this was that our driver couldn't really speak english, so it was a bit of a challenge to communicate with him. But other than that, we're satisfied!

    Driver came on time (or i should say he arrived much ealier) but its better if klook can confirm the exact time the night before. The village is interesting, highly recommended
