This caving expedition was recommended by our friends while we were visiting Kuching. It turned out to be the highlight of our tour of that region. The caving expedition was a full day outing. We were picked up at 9 in the morning and dropped off at supper time. After making a short stop to the office to receive the... More

Thank you James for an amazing day of caving and ensuring the snakes stayed at a safe distance! If you want to see Borneo's nature at its best then I would recommend Kuching Caving. Learning about the history, geography and nature of caves as well as local wildlife was a great experience and it was great fun to swim in... More

"Kuching Caving" was recommended to me by a friend, and having been on one of the tours, I do not hesitate to recommend it to others. The booking inquiry was made online via the website and everything thereafter was straightforward and personal via email. This was my first time to go caving and it was great way to start. The...

This was my first adventure caving experience and it was awesome. James has a huge amount of experience and knowledge of caving. We were told about how the formations were made which added an extra dimension. James and his local guide pointed out a lot of insects snakes birds bats etc during the day. The two caves we visited during... More

Thanks James for a fantastic time and for organising such a full and varied itinerary for us. We wanted to have an 'adventure' while visiting Kuching and after much investigation decided to go with Kuching Caving as they present so professionally. It took plenty of emailing and patience from James for us to settle our itinerary which included Lobang Batu... More

My pleasure! This is a great time to come to Sarawak. 20 years ago (or less) the places you went to were only accessible on foot and the trip you did would have taken many days. And, whilst modernisation is creeping in, many of the old ways are still followed. Thanks for a great review. More

We just come back from a 1day tour with Kuching caving: we chose "Big Spaces, Cool Streams", and it has been an amazing experience ! This experience is absolutely UNIQUE, you will never find the same tour in Kuching or anywhere else. Booking has been very easy and James was very reactive per email. For the tour, we were only...

Great review. Thankyou! I agree - the wildlife is wonderful and friendly. I still see species that are new to me from time to time. Most recently a scorpion that has never been recorded inside a cave before. I consider my self very lucky to be doing this trip more than 100 times every year! More

We did this tour after seeing all the reviews on here; our experience exceeded our expectations! Before our trip we had some initial queries that were answered promptly and all the information we needed was provided. We had James and Mr Ekol as our guides; James took the lead and made us feel comfortable despite being in a pitch black... More

Thankyou! I hope that everyone who does a caving adventure with us goes away with a great experience behind them" Our local guides are an essential part of the team not only for the reasons that you point out but to meet our own safety standards and to allow groups to split when some are finding the going tough.

I did the Big Spaces trip with my girlfriend over the Christmas holiday and it was a great experience. The owner, James, is more than just some tour operator trying to make a buck, he is also a seasoned explorer and naturalist who really cares about preserving and maintaining the caves for future generations. When the tour starts you get... More

I will be adding 'swimming instructor' to my LinkedIn profile immediately!! Sustainable tourism revenue (and in addition to local guide fees every village we work with earns money from our activities) must be better than short term cash from quarrying with all the health and environmental costs that go with it. Conservation and development need to be in balance. Not... More

One of the most amazing and fun adventures I have ever been on. Did the big spaces cool streams and it completely exceeded all ecpectations. We had Paul as our caving guide and he was fantastic, extremely informative, funny and a real gentleman. Kuching caving did a really good job of looking after us and we definitely got our moneys...

This is a long overdue review of my caving adventure with James and his crew back in October. Our group did both the Big Spaces, Cool Streams and The Drop Out trips. Both of them were great fun. This is not hard core caving, ideal for novices and curious adventure seekers, but there are enough twists and turns, caverns, tunnels,... More

Thanks for the review and the recommendation. My response is rather more overdue than your review.... apologies! I agree with your point about fitness. More so if doing The Drop Out which is significantly harder than Big Spaces. The latter has been enjoyed by several in their 70s who wouldn't have enjoyed dropping out! Off topic, I hope that your...
