James, the guide of Kuching Offroad, is really not your typical guide in the very best sense! James will take you in a Pajero to places where no other guide will take you! You will go and visit sites that James discovered himself, see amazing wildlife, even snakes :-) You will meet with local people that he knows and in... More

We had an excellent nightwalk with James who can teach you all about frogs and other small creatures. We could easily have walked for many more hours. There is so much to see and with James as the most competent guide you are sure not to miss anything. Highly recommended

The Tour was thought provoking, intense, fun, and varied. Our family (including two girls ages 10 & 7) spent a full day with James. The highlights were the local village market, headhunters house, jungle hike, lunch (perhaps the most delicious meal we had in Kuching), the Fairy Cave, and Coca-Cola with a local family in their home (I don't think...

My partner and I went for a night walk in June and had an amazing time. We would thoroughly recommend the tour and the guide James to anyone.

James is an absolute star, and will teach you more about the local cultures, food, geography and history of Sarawak in one day than most people will learn in a lifetime. I highly recommend the Tringgus Trail tour, which will take you from Headhunters to deep jungle to spectacular caves, all along with a delicious meal and a spectacular narrative.... More

The Tringgus Trail Tour with James is a must!. His rapport with the local people, together with his knowledge of the flora and fauna is outstanding. Trekking up to the Indonesian border with Peter was a hit with our 10 year old Grandson who has not stopped talking about it. A lovely lunch of local delicacies presented by Emily and... More

Many thanks Hilary for a lovely review. I don't think I have had 12.5 out of 10 for anything... ever! I hope that C is still talking about the day he went out into head hunting country and survived! Your husband is amazing. Not only did he do the full route without a fuss, he didn't shed a drop of... More

Just finished a full day with James doing the Tringgus Trail. James was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about the plants, geology, food and local people.

Many thanks for joining me, for the review, for the recommendation and for the commendation! It is, I'm afraid, a case of doing what we can when it comes to keeping the places we visit passably clean. We have had some notable successes working with local communities and some notable failures - in some cases there is no (or inadequate)... More

Kuching Offroad tours is well worth it.

If you are staying in Kuching, you should not miss this excursion. It is a day full of activities and a great insight into Sarawak culture, geology and history. Our several stops included a visit to a bird's nests shop, the Bau fruit market, two different villages (one with the Baruk house), jungle trekking up the Indonesia border, the Fairy... More

Thanks for joining us, for your review and for the photo. Pigs teeth jewellery seems to suit me :) Our '2 lunch days' happen from time to time when there's a community event or during the holidays and we get an impromptu invite. Always good fun even if you end the day a little full! More
