Private Tour Guide Advice Please

Hi All,

I am going to Sarawak in May and I am thinking off booking a 3 day tour with James Chee (saratour68@yahoo.com). I was just wondering if anyone else had booked a tour with him and what they thought? He has informed me that he is a freelance non-lisenced tour guide, so I just wanted to double check with others before booking with him.

Thanks so much

Hello LondonUK

I have read your post and started to search here in TA, I found a reply from "Sarawak Expert Destination" recommending James Chee in post number 7 and another tourist used James Chee while he was in Kuching, check the same thread post number 14. Check out the link below;

Thread link;


there is another recommendation from another tourist in the same thread. Check out reply number 1, they are recommending "Jihey Ridup". You can email both and check out the prices.

Have a nice holiday.

You can trust James to offer you a wide and varied experience. He is honest and speaks very good English.

He can also take you to places that other guides don't bother with as they stick to the regular tourist destinations.

Ive booked and paid for a tour with James in August so I hope its all ok! We talk regularly and he always responds to my emails even though ive paid already so i dont think you need to worry.
