Starting from visits at the small villages and moving on to Bidayuh villages, caves and even an old gold mining property, James showed us that there is so much to learn from the area. Fairy Cave was impressive in terms of size and is very different from the other caving trip we did the next day (Big Spaces Cool Streams).... More

Importantly, he has worked hard to build relationships with local villagers and as a result we were welcomed into 2 small villages, off the beaten track. The trip... More

Ex pat Brit James provides an outstanding experience in the jungle and small kampongs of western Sarawak..together with a fascinating but challenging exploration of the Fairy Cave...a not to be missed experience. His in-depth knowledge of the geography flora and fauna of the region, together with his cultural awareness and sensitivity made for an exceptional day, worth every ringitt.

My parents and I did the offroad tour approximately a month ago. The tour was a great combination of culture and nature. James has so much knowledge about the nature, geology and local people. One day I will definitely book another tour with james.
