    Pretty cool tour. Our guide picked us up from the hotel and brought us to take a private boat to the national park. Due to the low tide we had to wait 1.5 hours at the pier, though. I wonder if that could've been avoided, i.e. if we could have been picked-up a little bit later (I coild have ised the extra sleep). The boat ride was smooth, then we walked in the forest looking for monkeys (we saw several silver-leaf monkeys, close-up, and we also got lucky and managed to see proboscis monkeys, although they were quite far away). We also saw bearded boars and "giant lizards". After the lunch break (included in the price) we walked some more, through a forest-path, and ended up on a beach. There, our boat was waiting for us and took us back to the starting point. Pur guide then dropped us off at our hotel again.

    We had a great time! Exploring nature and wildlife. Got to see the proboscis monkey was the highlight. We learned a lot from our guide, Alex. Thank you!

    This tour was exceptional. Bako National Park is quite remote and our guide Phillip was very knowledgeable about the area. Very comfortable ride there and the boat ride was quite nice. The island was really full of nature and he went out of his way to find things and accommodate wildlife sightings.

    Overall, this was a good trip from Kuching City. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth having a guide as there are numerous trails to explore. The guide keeps you on track with time schedules.
    The description and picture for this trip is not accurate. You do not get to see the rock formations unless you pay an extra 60 Ringgit for a boat ride out to the formations. The guide will help to hire the boat if you let him know at the beginning of the trip. Also, there was no boat ride to the swimming beach for a swim. The trip strictly consisted of the boat ride to and from the park, hiking and lunch.
