Sandakan Tours

Can tours be booked once in Sandakan or is it better to book before you arrive.

I am wanting to do the Kinabatangan River and Turtle Island tours

Turtle Island needs to be booked well before you arrive. There is limited accommodation available.

If you wanna be in a safe side or you have a short time in Sabah, than you better book early. If you have plantey of time than just do it from there. You can call them up few days before you reach Sandakan and book. Good luck.

Don't rely on being able to book Turtle Island a few days before. The island is controlled by Crystal Quest and they are infamous for being very slow in responding. I booked through Downbelow

who can also arrange Kinabatangan trips, and even their usual excellent service was slow due to them having to deal with Crystal Quest.

Trips to turtle island are not recommended by Lonely Planet. I was thinking of going but having read what they say I have changed my mind.

Lonely Planet would be the last travel information on which I rely for accuracy. Read reviews by unbiased real travellers on Trip Advisor.
