Our Borneo Family Holiday trips score an average of 4.77 out of 5 based on 74 reviews in the last year.
A fantastic way to see Borneo with children. The accommodation was always interesting (especially the Eco Lodge which took us way out of our comfort zone!) Our guide was lovely & always helpful. There wasn't a lot of downtime; lots of early starts, but still brilliant fun! Some places we stayed were 'dry' which we didn't realise. It made the next beer all the better! We saw amazing animals and all the children got a great insight into Borneo life & wildlife. Totally recommend!
