Meet with us

We understand the value of exploring a destination like Kota Kinabalu through the eyes of an earnest, genuine, local who are able to teach you a thing or two about the city, the local lingo, tricks of staying in this city, eat delicious humble food (or extravagant, your choice!), and do things beyond famous attractions.

With a minimum fee, we are happy to show you around this adorable coastal city in 1 - 2 hours at your pace. Mix and match between your preferred places of interest and our very own recommendations and you will be able to explore this city beyond its facade. Listen to our stories as locals, and exchange with yours. Get connected with us locals easily!
