Exotic Borneo put together a custom 5-day package to Kinabalu Park and Tanjong Aru for our group of 6 adults at very short notice with quiet efficiency over a brief exchange of emails. Two of us in our group are siblings, and we wanted to give our elderly parents (in their 80s) a relaxing holiday. Before the trip, we had concerns about our parents' limited mobility and whether they were up to the proposed program. But we needed not have worried. We had a really great time, right from the moment that we were greeted by our irrepressibly cheerful guide Jennifer and driver Ackmal at the airport.
Jennifer and Akmal were especially sensitive to the needs and abilities of our elderly parents. Both were endlessly patient. Jennifer never pushed anything on us and instead used the 2-hour drive up from the airport to Kinabalu Park chatting with us to find out what interested us most (not easy, as we had very diverse interests), and reshaped the tour program on the fly to best accommodate us. She discovered that three of us were especially keen on seeing a giant Rafflesia flower in full bloom, so it was that we got to see a Rafflesia keithii in full bloom at Poring!
In sum, all of us (and certainly our elderly parents) had a trip which will leave us with many fond memories. We certainly hope to be back.
