Reccomended travel agent in KuchingDuring our stay in Kuching we want to visit Bako NP (day tour) and do a 3d/2n tour to a longhouse (preferable Batang Ai).
Does anyone has tips for a good/reliable travel agent in Kuching who offers such tours against a reasonable price?
I know Bako NP can be done on your own but we prefere doing it with a guide so we dont miss out on things because we dont have a trained eye like the guides (or step on pit vipers!)

2I'm sure the rangers in Bako do guided tours...though i haven't done so myself (there really isn't any need for a guide there).
That would cost you a hell of a lot less than bringing a guide from Kuching...

3They do lucapal, you can just turn up at the ranger station in Bako and hire a guide, can't remember the prices off the top of my head, but I didn't know wether the OP wanted to organise everything in Kuching or head up there.

6Using a guide gets you so much more from the experience and Bako is so amazing. You get to chat to a local too which is always interesting. We used a local agent in Kuching and they were great and seemed reasonably priced (we checked a couple of options) called CPH Travel on Padungan Rd. Have a great time.

7I used to work for CPH travel (looooong time ago though) and yes they are brilliant. Their tours to Batang Ai and Skrang have very knowledgeable guides, great food and most importantly, great respect for the Iban who were hosting the guests. As it is a family-run business, I'm sure those ethics still exists. I still miss the Sarawak, it's a magic place. Enjoy!
