We (family with 2 boys 15 & 13) have just completed the Trinngus Trail. James is a font of all knowledge relating to flora, fauna, caving and the history of the region. 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.

We (family with 2 boys-14 /11) did the Trinngus Trail and the Night Walk with James and Mary. We had an absolute blast! On the Day Trek, we went round a local market, Chinese trading village, a village with a skull house, a jungle trek to border with Indonesia, a delicious lunch with local food (great kalimantan juice), went into...

I did a search of the web to find a good trip to do in the jungle for my holiday to kuching. I found James Handfield-jones from Kuching Off Road. The reviews were excellent so I booked via email. THANK GOODNESS. We had the best day in a four wheel drive going off the tourist route from birds nest factories... More

James and Mary share a passion for the work they do - and have an extraordinary knowledge and experience of the area combined with a knack for communicating this well. Moreover, thankfully, they have an opinion, or worldview, they are willing to share, something you may not find on other trips. We had followed the standard itinerary out of Kuching,... More

We booked last minute with James for a Kuching Offroad day tour, and it didn't disappoint! We were lucky enough to be the only ones touring that day and we really enjoyed James' knowledge, sense of humor and obvious love for the caves, villages, wildlife and jungles of Borneo. You do not get these kind of experiences booking a bus... More

James is a great tour guide full of local knowledge after many years living in the Kuching area and he covers the full picture from wildlife through history to geology - it is a non-stop information download. The tingus trail and lunch were the highlights of the day for me and it is particularly nice that he knows the locals... More

Although I've lived on Borneo for 10 years, I still thoroughly enjoyed the experience of getting out and seeing a number of things and places that you just don't get to see when you arrive in a city and walk around for a few days. Caves, jungle, interesting villages, a local market and several other adventures in one day. It... More
