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!

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. The highlight of the day for our family was the hike to the Indonesian border and meeting some of the village people along the way as they trekked to and from Sarawak to... More

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

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

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

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
