    This was my third time to tour Sentosa and the first two were excellent. This third one was not so good. The other tours the tour guide was with us all the way. This time the tour guide left us at Sentosa. The first two we went to aquarium, dolphin and sea lion show. This third one, the options were not good. I hope this tour will return the aquarium and dolphin and sea lion show.

    This tour was really good, although I also booked the night city tour and it was basically the same thing with the addition of the water village experience and a few other things that Razie took us to. Razie was exceptional and very passionate about Brunei and we had a very enjoyable experience in this small country.

    Jeffrey our tour guide was very articulate and spoke with great knowledge on the history of Brunei. It was very interesting listening to him as he explained everything one has to know about Brunei. We took the half day tour and not one moment was wasted. It was the most educational half day tour we have ever had. Even managed to go to the Water Village or the Kampong Ayer as it is called locally and was served tasty local delicacies in one of the houses of the locals. Indeed one of the most enjoyable tours we ever had and learning so much all in a span of a half day! Very much worth it! Highly recommended for everyone to journey the Abode of Peace. Will have to do the Temburong rainforest tour on our next visit.

    Saw the main sights of Bandar Seri Begawan, including the main mosques, the downtown area, government buildings and the Brunei Museum and Royal Regalia Center. Took a boat to the Water Village and toured the home of a resident. Had baked treats and tea in the home. A really good partial day introduction to the city. Our guide was a local person with a lot of knowledge about the inner workings of Brunei and he explained many of the local customs. Note - we toured on a Friday and were unable, as non-Muslims, to enter the mosques. We knew this when booking the tour, as this was the only day that worked for us.
