We enjoyed our amazing holiday a lot with the private 3 days tour for 12 persons arranged by Mountain Trails! My family love the Wetland River Cruise, Kinabalu Park and the Canopy Walk very much! Our driver for 3 days, Mr Mazid and tour guide for Kinabalu Park, Mr Jason were very friendly and knowledgeable, thanks a lot for the professional service and knowledge that provided by them! In the future I will come KK again and definitely will contact Mountain Trails for the wonderful arrangement!

The Mt Kinabalu hike is a must do for any adventure junkie. Abdul at Mountain Trails and Tours did a fantastic job with arranging pick up and drop off back to Kota Kinabalu and organising everything in between. We had Rahim as our hide who was fantastic - he was very knowledgeable, friendly and a fun guide on our hike up and down. Definitely recommend doing this hike.

I did my first Mt. Kinabalu Low's Peak climb on September 20th with my friends in a small and private group with Mountain Trails Tours & Travel. It was very well organized-the driver was on time to pick us up and the ride from our hotel to the beginning of the trail was very smooth. We had a wonderful guide-Rahim. He was patient, helpful and left us alone when we needed a break! The good thing was that the driver, Rahim and our guide for Via Ferrata were cracking jokes with us, too! It made us relax. The climb itself was hard, challenging, but totally doable. We climbed the first day, and stayed at Laban Rata, and went to the summit to watch the sunrise at 6am. It was a lifetime experience for me. I do have to point out that we initially booked a regular package without "Via Ferrata". But once we were at Laban Rata for the summit climb briefing, we were told that our package actually included the torq. So we did it without paying extra. So make sure that you ask ahead of time. And according to the guides at the lodge, if you stay at Laban Rata, it means that you will do the Via Ferrata. It looked scarry, but it was one hell of experience. So I would suggest that you include this into your climb. You will not regret it. And Laban Rata is a great lodge with hot water and nice, comfortable, and super clean bunker beds. Happy climbing and enjoy the wonderful nature!

Pick and and drop off were fine. We had a young guide who didn't speak much to us (his English wasn't amazing which was fair enough) and had music on his mobile which did get a bit wearing too. However when someone was injured he was absolutely fabulous and helped her hobble back down- especially on the really tricky parts of the climb- he was really great on the ascent and descent above the huts.

The packed lunch was a bit rubbish- especially compared to what we saw other people with. Also we seemed to have been signed up for a Via Ferrata without any knowledge of it because of where we were staying. The hut was great though apart from the breakfast which was not enough.

It all worked fine but I'm not sure doing it through these guys was worth the money. You can book these things directly -- the hut, the guide and the permit -- so the travel company only added a packed lunch and the transfers. It's a lot more expensive through this company and if we did it again we'd probably just book directly.

We booked with Mountain Trails after reading many favorable reviews on Trip Advisor, and we are very happy that we did. Abdul was very prompt with all the email communication. All information was communicated clearly, including a list of things to bring. Our driver Rafael was great! Fun guy! When we met our guide, Sharil, we were initially taken aback as he looked so young. We found out later that he is only 16 years old! But he was mature, knew the mountain well, and was so strong and fit. (He helped carry our overnight backpacks.) He only spoke a little English, but it didn't bother us and we were able to communicate adequately. He gave us space but was there when we needed him, eg. there were some parts just coming off the summit that he knew I felt insecure with the footing, and he held my hand and guided me. Sharil was the perfect guide for us! We are so thankful that we made it to see the sunrise at the summit. It was a wonderful and meaningful way to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Thank you Mountain Trails Tours!
