: Testimonial from Mr. Oscar Campbell (ojcampbell25@yahoo.com)
I highly recommend Yeo, a bird guide I found by browsing through leaflets at Kuching Visitor Information Centre on the first morning. A gripping shot of Blue-banded Pitta fully exposed helped his brochure stand out and he was very helpful on the telephone. We enjoyed an action-packed half-day at Kubah. Yeo is totally clued up birder and really knows his stuff; he also does trips all over Sarawak and Sabah. As well as Kubah, he frequently takes people to the Bornean Highlands, a resort on the Sarawak / Kalimantan border where there is a fair chance of finding Pygmy White-eye and even Rail-Babbler! He can be emailed at yeo @ catcityholidays.com or reached via his company’s website http://www.catcityholidays.com .
