The Borneo Cultural Village Tour was a wonderful experience. Our guide Ven, as well as the other staff, were very nice and entertaining. The tour was informative as well as interesting. You will learn a lot about the culture of tribes, and you will get to try out traditional snacks and drinks that are all very good. The activities were enjoyable as well. The lunch buffet was delicious. This tour is definitely a must-do especially for first timers in Sabah. 👍🏻
such a nice exprience having a buffet on cruise. but unfortunately the wheather was not good on that day so we're quite dissapointed due to unable to watch the sunset. we only manage to take a few pictures around the cruise before stay inside because of rainy day. the food was nice but not too many choice but we are really enjoying performance while eating.💃
We went on February 24th! This is a must-have course if you are going to Kota Kinabalu !!! ATV riding on the longest beach in Kota Kinabalu was really good ㅠ ㅠㅠㅠ My parents took me there, but my parents also liked it! (Both of you are driving) When you come to pick up, you will be contacted first by Katok! Please send the pickup vehicle as a photo! So it was so easy! The vehicle was only taken by our team. When we arrived, there were other teams, but there were no Chinese because of the corona, so one team or two more teams came. When you arrive, run a couple of courses to drive the ATV, then run the beach! Since we were the first team, we ran on a beach with no footprints, but it was really good ㅠㅠ and it was better to play with Ko Young-hee, who grew up there. If you go to this package and go for a beer, the time is just right. If you go to Kota Kinabalu again, this is an activity you want to do again! I don't have much to do with Kota Kinabalu, but this is highly recommended !!! @@
Very fun experience. You'll learn a lot about the tribe's culture. Everyone of the staff are very friendly and they always smile and laugh. There were only 11 tourists because of COVID-19 but they all gave us a wonderful time and the performers were all out on their performance. Thanks to Viktor, our driver, he's friendly, knowledgeable, and an excellent driver. 10/10 would recommend.
Really enjoyed our tour in Borneo Cultural Village. We were really able to experience their culture. Got to try their dance, their native hunting instrument, cooking curry and roti, and various food samples from the different tribes. The buffet lunch was also good. They also offered free henna tattoo.
Our guide (Jonny) was the best! thanks to him we could get amazing and special memories. and I released all stress as riding the atv. exactly the sunset view was the best. I recommend Jonny guide! he is so smart, can speak many languages (Malaysian, Chinese, English), explained us about various things about Kota Kinabalu. It feels I got a good friend :) <It's for Korean tourist> You won't regret it! Ride the atv on the beach with nobody, and the backdrop is complete with picturesque sunsets! Not only that, the fireflies were as beautiful as they dreamed of. The tour to the town where I enjoyed the tour was also the one with the most local feeling. You'll never regret it (I don't write any reviews well, this is real)
