    After returning home from our memorable trip to Borneo, I would like to take opportunity to thank you very much for contributing to so many beautiful moments. This trip to Selingan Island was one of the highlights of our trip. Vendon was a true gem and this humor, positive attitude and knowledge contributed to the success of this trip. It was a super smooth flow from pick up to drop off. We had a great time with our small group and truly enjoyed our time on the island. Please share our regards with the “Amazing Borneo Team” as well who did a fantastic job executing this trip. All the best!
