Spent the day exploring the caves and had James (from the UK) as our guide. Visits to some lovely homes of the indigenous folks or the local tribes. James was very knowledgeable and shared alot of information about the history of the local tribes as well as the caves.

The Tringgus Trail is a great experience which we highly recommend. Spending the day with James (from UK) gives you a complete image of the Kuching region with a pleasant diversity in activities. This trip gave us the Borneo experience we were looking for. From drinking 'birds nest jelly' and lunch with locals to a challenging track through the jungle and an awesome cave. An absolute must-do when you are in Kuching.

We have only 1 full day to discover Kuching. After communicating with several tour operators, we finally decided to do the Tringgus trail. This is how James described Tringgus trail in his email "The TringgusTrail covers most of the good things about Sarawak in a day. Birds nests, markets, food, culture, skulls, jungle, trekking, caves etc.". I could say that among those "etc" were loads of information on the history and geology with some sense of humor. I think this tour is suitable for everyone who likes a mixture of everthing. Not only you get the experience but knowledge as well. It has been an absolutely wonderful experience and we are certainly looking forward to do other activities that Kuching Offroad has to offer. Cheers, James!

Had a great time out with James exploring the caves, the forest, the cultural homes and the markets. The best thing about this tour is the amount of detail and history that James shares with you, along with the anecdotes, some of them very crazy (dog's claw chewed from his Achilles heel by a witch doctor!)

James clearly loves what he is doing and lives every day to the fullest. You will learn a lot on this tour and you'll feel very much like you're on tour with the modern day Indiana Jones.

Definitely recommended and not to be missed.

If one is looking for an exciting and compact inside into Sarawak life, history and today, coupled with exciting exposure to local markets, head hunting villages, the jungle and caves and great interaction with locals, look no more....the tringus trail offers it all.
James and his team exude passion and lend to a very personalised atmosphere with clear commentary as the trip progresses. An excellent lunch in a country house in a village adds to the completeness of this trip.
Tiring? Yes but well worth the experience.
