Borneo Family Adventure, April 2014
Rony was a wonderful guide and host. He was accommodating of all of our needs and managed the diverse age range very well. I cannot speak highly enough of our leader 'Rony' - he was ENTHUSIASTIC, amazing with the little kids and older 'kids', accommodating to our needs, professional, really organised and explained everything in advance so we knew what to expect. He got on really well with the other operators or guides we encountered, proving that he is well respected amongst his peers. He explained responsible tourism on each occasion and was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed our chats of an evening when the younger tour members had gone to bed and I could learn more about Sabah / Borneo it's wildlife and culture. I cant wait to come back and would love Rony to be our guide again.

Rony was an outstanding embassador for Interpid and for his country. Rony was the key to having an amazing experience and brought the whole group together as a cooperative entity. Well done Rony. He should be given the opportunity to come to Sydney to see how our country operates so that he can appreciate his job more
