    we were not able to join our shuttle bus for pickup because we got stranded at the island abd did not arrive at the hotel on time. we booked a grab to the area. despite of it. they accomodated us really well. our tour guide Amir was very good at time management that we were able to squeeze everything without the feeling of being hurried, super informative and even told us about safety of lifevest etc... furthermore, he was really accomodating and considerate that he convinced us to join the activities and knows when he should capture us. he treated us like a vip! best tour ever! this became the highlight of our visit that made us love and appreciate kota kinabalu.. it will surely remain forever in our hearts❤

  • Anabellie 10 Jul 2018
    I had so much fun. Must try when in KK. Mari Mari!
  • Catherine 1 Jul 2018
    we saw their culture, their houses, we taste different kinds of food before, and the most i like is we have free henna tattoo and we just have to give them tips.
  • Sheila Christine 25 Jun 2018
    This has been one of the activities we enjoyed in Kota Kinabalu. Those tribes. Their culture. Their food (Yum! 😋). The experience. The guide. I mean, what else can I say? I loved, we loved it! Anyone who'd view this, don't leave KK not until you get to see this village. Not to mention their performance and the free hanne tattoo! 😍😍😍

    Best part of my KK trip! this is the real authentic experience!
  • Gilda Mikee 22 Jun 2018
    The village tour was very informative and interesting. Its a great and highly recommended started for anyone interested in indigenous cultures in Sabah. One hostelmate wanted to do the rungus longhouse homestay for a few days, but she wasnt so sure, so i told her about my trip to this village. When the reception ladies overheard us, they all jumped in and remarked that this mari mari cultural tour is indeed worthwhile. all the more that i felt so validated and pleased to have booked this! Sabahans themselves are proud of sharing the village to tourists. plus side, it didnt feel contrived.

    A smooth and efficient tour process, from booking to picking up and returning back to the hotel. Everything went according to plan, no hiccups along the way. Tour was very informative and interesting, to learn about the different indigenous groups in Sabah. Highly recommended for any tourists visiting Sabah. Thanks Klook, for the wonderful experience.

    It’s really a good memory and it’s very fun and interesting! Strongly recommended!
  • Neil 21 Jun 2018
    It was a hassle free experience. They'll pick you up at where you're staying and also drive you back after the tour. Me and my friends enjoyed it so much, it was a good learning experience knowing all these things about the different tribes and their culture. Our guide, Rossell was also a superb host giving all these trivias and answering all our questions.
