1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Every part of the holiday was truly amazing but the climb up Mount Kinabalu probably stands out as the best bit. An incredibly tough assent followed by a somewhat painful descent but what a sense of achievement and sat at the summit watching the sunrise having made the climb took away what little breath we had left!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

1) It's well worth booking a bespoke trip. The guide was fantastic and we had him all to ourselves. 2) Make the most of every moment it all goes far to quickly and there is so much to fit it! 3) Take a camera with a very good zoom for the best shots of animals in the wild. 4) Drop everything now and get booking!!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Absolutely - In particular when we went to Mikki's camp - a very humbling and enjoyable experience!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Superb, Amazing, Fantastic, Unforgettable, Life Changing and Emotional just to start with. There really aren't enough words to describe just how wonderful every single part of the holiday was from the food, to the people to the accommodation to the experiences! Can't wait for the next one!

Lots of it was exciting but seeing the Orangutans in the wild has to be the best bit.

Definitely. We got to hear first hand from local villagers just how beneficial us being there was.
