I am a Blue Badge Guide and has been guiding for 23 years. My passion for travelling and sharing with others about Sabah's wonderful and beautiful eco-nature mountains and beaches as well as its colorful and diverse 32 over ethnic groups landed me in becoming a tourist guide since 1989 (there were only less than 80 guides then) and has never look back. My guests who include normal tourists to very high profile personnel VVIPS such as Ministers, Filming Crews, CEOS have always commented that I have the gift of making stories of people, places and even animals come alive and could make a boring place become interesting which is not surprising as tour guiding apart from being my beloved profession, is also my hobby! With my years of experience in guiding and in management, I am also now a Trainer with Tourism Malaysia for their Mesra Malaysia and Eco Host programs, training tourist guides and frontliners in the tourism industry. I am also the founder of the KK Heritage Walk.
My motto in striving for excellence service is:
Do To Others What You Want Others To Do To You !
Thus, presenting surprising souvenir to my guests is just part of my service.

Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
Our first trip to KK was a memorable one. Grace's humuor & casualness put everyone especially the children at ease,
though they were very shy at first. Enjoyed also the interesting 'education' on Eco tourism. Gave us something to think about.
On the whole i would say 5 out of 5. Enjoyed every minute of it, the food ( Aiyo.. the Roti sayur... delicious), the island trip...
Thanks again, Grace.. Merry X'mas....Happy Holidays
Tour Guide Comment:
