As previous comment, good trip due to the group but thought intrpid cut corners
Poor quality tour that didn't deliver value for money in my opinion. I wouldn't consider myself even remotely fussy when it comes to food, but hotel selections on this tour offered some of the worst food I've ever eaten anywhere, some of which was inedible. A number of the visited sites were crassly over-commercialized. Though this is not the fault of the tour operator, perhaps consideration should be given to including more off-the-beaten-path sites that still have some appeal and are more representative of an unspoiled Borneo.
