A day out with James exploring the little visited sites of rural and wild Sarawak is the most fun, exciting and most of all, informative adventure Kuching has to offer. We were guided through local markets and tried bird nests soup. We ate the most delicious lunch at a friendly local family home. Then we explored caves, examined skulls in a remote village and hiked through the jungle to the boarder of Indonesia. The tour covers an incredible amount of time and space and James knows every detail of the past and recent history.

Kuching Offroad Tour delivered a full day of adventure, culture and discovery. From visiting villages, caves, viewing the head house of the Bau people to energetic jungle hiking, this was a day to remember. A nice touch of the tour was lunching with friends of James, the knowledgeable and enthusiastic caver and teller of great stories of Sarawak. James has a respect and understanding of the local customs and peoples as well as the natural world of Sarawak. Absolutely memorable, interesting and adventurous day out. Great value and not to be missed if you are visiting Kuching and surrounds.

James from Kuching Off Road is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about the beautiful and wild natural world of Sarawak. I was lucky to go on The Tringgus Trail tour. It was a wonderful snapshot of Sarawak in a day. A full day tour, accompanied by excellent commentary that provided a fantastic insight into the culture of Sarawak, especially it’s Chinese heritage and the local, indigenous Bidayuh people. Local fresh food markets, abandoned mining camps, caves, delicious local food, culture, jungle treks, headhunter’s skulls(!) and great off road driving. But for me the best part were the villages we visited and the local people who shared their homes and lifestyle with us. It is obvious that James has nurtured wonderful partnerships with local people that are beneficial for them. And of course his guests! I really recommend this tour.

We had the same great experiences, just like what all other reviewers said about James and his Kuching Offroad tour. The two most unforgettable experiences for us are: 1) the delicious lunch that Emma prepared for us (which turns out to be the best food we had in Sarawak), and 2) the rocky and slippery "jungle" path that we took to reach the Malaysia-Indonesia border. The end-part of the tour when we visited a Bidayuh house was sort of pointless tho, since we were just left alone sitting at the couch the whole time. Nonetheless, it's an educational and fun trip, thanks James!

Highly recommended tour with James, who will tell you everything about the people and the history of the villages around Kuching. He will take you through an impressive part of the jungle all the way to a secret border crossing with Indonesia. We saw local produce of veggies and fruits and met local people in their villages. We saw the Bidayuh head house with the skulls and visited the gorgeous Fairy Cave (not only on the paved path, but also deep into the dark cave!). Delicious lunch as well!

Me and my boyfriend partecipated in the Night Walk with James: it was like a game in which we had to find the largest number of animales and we discovered a lot of insects and amphibia in almost two hours. James knew a lot of things about the jungle and took amazing pictures.
After the walk, we went also in a very good and typical restaurant.
We really appreciate this experience!

I can only recommend this tour. James is very knowledgeable and passionate about... well about pretty much everything related to Sarawak.

It was fantastic to get the chance to talk to Bidayuh people such as James (whose life story is also fascinating). I went there with my 9-year old son who, I think, will remember this trip for a long time.

James is extremely knowledgeable of the history of Kuching and Sarawak, the wildlife, the geology and the culture of the Bidayuh people. The tour was easy to organise and great money for value. We had a visit to a remote mountain village, an incredible caving experience, a trek to the Indonesian border and a delicious local meal all whilst soaking up all the knowledge that James had to offer. Would definitely recommend.

James picked us up from our hostel and took us on an informative tour of several villages and families. The highlight was exploring the fairy cave - definitely value for money!
