Note from Jodi: "Living in Kuching 3 months a year since 2001, I have developed many contacts and friendships within the local communities.
My friends have become valuable contacts & my contacts have become valuable friends. They are from all walks of life and from the many diverse cultural & ethnic groups in Malaysia.
Because of this I am uniquely qualified to provide authentic non- touristic experiences for my clients. With the exception of extreme sports :) ...I have visited almost all the destinations that I refer to my clients and know my ground handlers personally & trust them implicitly.
Your enjoyment & safety are my top priorities.
We have developed grass roots connections with locals running exciting programs in their villages:adventure caving, bamboo rafting, homestays.
