James and Paul were great! Made the experience very personal while also being knowledgable and professional. The caves were breathtaking and the views from different vantage points were stunning. My gf and I did lobang batu and survived, haha! The hike up and down the mountain is not to be taken lightly especially bc of the heat and humidity of... More

We did the Large spaces and cool streams package. It was very well organised by James and Paul. I personally found the first cave challenging and nearly didnt go into the second cave. However, I pushed through and it was definitely worth it, the two caves are very different and I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is... More

I have been to many caves in Malaysia - but for a real experience, this trip was the best. Going places few people get to see - very magical. Loved the cool water after the heat of Borneo. The guides are excellent and did everything they could to make the trip a special experience. One bit of advice - this... More

My partner and I did a 2 day trip with James and his team. We wanted something that was challenging, educational and beautiful which was exactly what we got. The first day we went to the drop out which involves several abseils (we got a bonus at the end), quite long crawls, lots of cave life (including an amazing Malaysian... More

We booked a tour directly with the local Coffe shop owner Ehwan following a suggestion on trip advisor. Since we stayed in Kuching we also had to organise a taxi for going there and back after the boat tour. There are no taxis in Kampung Buntal. It is possible to book a tour with travel agents but we felt booking... More

Did this trip with my mum, was definitely an experience but i dont think its for everyone. Be prepared for a hot, humid pitch black 2hr plus hike! Paul the guide was very nice, as well ahs mr.eko the local guide. Unfortunately we never received our photos which was rather disappointing :/

You booked a full day ‘Real Caving Adventure’ in the tropics and asked no questions about the environment during the booking process You then complain that it is…. ‘Hot and humid’. The tropics are. ‘Pitch black’. Caves are noted for it. But your expedition had 4000 lumens of torch power so it is not as if you were stumbling around... More

We had a great day out with James and Mr Ekol. My teenage kids, husband and I entered the caves with a little trepidation but James was always there telling us where to put our hands and feet and how to stay safe. We loved swimming in the second cave and seeing all the cave dwellers such as snakes, large... More
