We were disappointed in this trip. We intended a small group tour from Diamond Princess (March sailing). We were told on the booking that there would be six of us. Unfortunately three groups were pulled together and suddenly we were in a small bus.
The tour itself was comprehensive but no time was given to inside the mosque and we were taken to a disappointing view point over the city. The nature tour didn’t feature at all. There was some confusion about payment in USD despite the fact that we had prior agreement for this. Sorry guys, a lovely guide but the tour didn’t work for us.

Having read very favorable reports on Top Peak Travel on Tripadvisor, we chose to book a private tour for eight people in Kota Kinabalu. We started planning this tour more than a year ahead of our arrival. We thought we had everything worked out with the company. Little did we know they were going to change a lot of things without even notifying us.

First of all, we expected a small van to pick up our small group of eight people. Instead, a mid-size bus – that arrived late – picked us up along with two other tour groups. Now, our group size was suddenly twenty-one!

Next, we went along doing a few of the sights that were on our list. Signal Hill was thrown in, which had never been mentioned – we had no idea where that came from, but we weren’t too concerned until after lunch when the tour guide stated that “on our way back to the port, some want to stop at a wine shop.”

According to our itinerary, we were to go to Crocker National Park after lunch. The tour guide knew nothing about this. So, we stood around for 20 minutes while the guides tried to sort everything out with management. We were told that a road leading to the park was unsafe. It was agreed that we would cut the tour short (by almost three hours) and management graciously offered us a $5 USD per person discount. This was not even a 10% discount for losing 1/3 of our tour time!

In addition, we originally were told that we could pay in USD. Then, we were told they needed to be paid in Malaysian Ringgits (RM) and that the driver would take us to an ATM. On the day of the tour, we did go to an ATM only to find that one of the other groups was paying in USD! However, I think we did come out ahead because I believe that the tour company was using an unfair exchange rate in calculating the USD value.

Overall, although our tour guide was informative and friendly, I would probably not use this company again due to the management inadequacies.

Hello Susan H, Let me apologize for your tour not meeting your expectations, surpassing expectations is one of our core goals at this company. Allow me to inform you of a few misconceptions you had during booking and also some areas where we didnt live up to our philosophy as well. When servicing cruise ships upon arrival to our city we, by policy, dont guarantee the tour to be private unless specified by the client. This is due to thousands of people arriving here, at the same time, for a relatively short time, so if we went private for every booking it would be chaos at the port. Sorry you misunderstood this. Although you were informed at the start of the tour by the tour guide that the program had been amended due to safety concerns on the road leading up to crocker range national park (not surprised with it after your lunch stop), we could have handled this better by informing you prior to the tour date. This was our fault as we hoped the road would be repaired by the time of your arrival but alas, it was not. Safety is a main focus for us when you visit so we made the judgment call to add a few other stops in lieu(signal hill, tanjung aru beach and local handicraft store). We feel the change was of equal or greater value than your original tour, the discount was given after some members of the tour refused to pay unless the discount was given..... so we obliged. Lastly banking institutions do not offer the same exchange rates as xe.com or similar online exchange forums. For this fact small business such as ours must follow the banks rates, which we did in this case. After your trip policy has been updated to only accept local currency as banks here only accept this. I hope this change will eliminate that type of confusion in the future. Glad you enjoyed the guide and we hope we can improve from your feedback.
