Wann and Mark provided a very nice and generous service - staying on the water longer than planned, helping get excellent pic. We saw crocs, otters, proboscis monkeys, birds. They know the river well and they took their time to make sure I got a good experience.

After reading the reviews about Mark and Wanna I decided I needed to find them to take a tour. I met them at the river side next to Kaizen Japanese sushi restaurant. Easy to park in the car park ($2 all day). The tour left at 4pm for 1 1/2 - 2 hours although we were almost 3 hours. The... More

During my short stay in Brunei I was offered a tour to see the proboscis monkey from every single boat for cheaper price than offered by Mark and Wann. Despite the fact I decided to go and give it shot with them anyways due to good reviews. Communication was very clear, easy and prompt. Wann a very knowledgable and will... More

A river safari to see the Proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, monitor lizards, and other wildlife is the best reason to visit Brunei Darussalam. We had an absolutely terrific tour with Wann and Mark of Mark Putera Delima Tour. Mark is a terrific spotter and made sure that we saw the elusive Prosboscis monkeys (two great sightings with many monkeys in eachj... More

We read about Mark and Wann and got their email off TripAdvisor. Simple enough to arrange a tour that was significantly cheaper that that offered by hotel or online. The mangrove safari was amazing. We saw crocs, monitors, birds, long tail monkeys, and the proboscis monkeys. They are a professional team who know the mangroves intimately. Do what we did... More

We were luck enough to find Mark and Wann Putera Dilema to take us on a trip up the river. This was a safe clean boat with a roof to shade us from the sun and life jackets. First we went to visit the Maritime museum which was about a shipwreck and the treasure trove that was discovered. Wann and... More

The sunset was nice but the monkeys were far far away n there's no crocs in sight. Its better to do the morning tour to the safari as there's better chance of spotting wildlife when its low tide...

I contacted Wann at 2am the night before to see if they could squeeze in a last min tour for the next day. She got back to me 6am and confirmed! From that first e-mail, all the way through to the end of the tour, Wann and Mark were gracious, knowledgable, accommodating, sweet hearted and a pleasure to be around.... More

We specifically booked with Mark Putera Delima and his lovely wife Wann because of reviews in TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Their enthusiasm and knowledge of the wildlife of Brunei was fantastic and we saw lots of Proboscis Monkeys as well as macaque monkeys, monitors, a crocodile and a variety of birds over about 2.5 hours. The highlight of... More

I was afraid that they would feed the monkeys to lure them close to the boat, like the whale sharks in Cebu. But Mark and his wife both have keen eyes to spot the wildlife from far away. Then he kills the motor on the boat and drifts in for a closer look. He travels with a whole library of... More
