Short Description

This is a sketch of what your Custom Journey to Borneo might look like. It is intensely focused on the wildlife of Borneo, and is but one suggestion. We can create a custom Borneo tour package entirely from scratch, based on your available time, interests, budget, and preferred pace.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
