I went with my wife for 10 days to Borneo in May of this year and we were impressed by Peterson Travel. We don’t like tours in the traditional sense, so were pleased when we could just choose transport and hotels. We’d have preferred to do the trip on our own, but soon found out that the terrain in Borneo makes it impossible to hire vehicles.

The other bonus of going through an agency is that they get better deals on hotels than you can negotiate directly with hotels. This was even more noticeable on the prices of the hotels on the islands off the coast of Simpadan which were crazily expensive if you tried to book direct.

With Peterson, we paid a deposit by bank transfer if I remember right, then the rest nearer the time. The trip went really smoothly, but the best thing about them was that we sent the itinerary we wanted and the agency put together the exact tour we wanted, on the days we wanted. Bespoke travel agency at normal tour prices and cheaper than you could do yourself – what more could you want!
