Pros: Helped us manage all the important and miscellaneous things so we didn't have to go through too much trouble to secure a tour to Mulu. Cons: Poor arrangement of the Mulu tour. We stayed in this Benarat Lodge where we were pretty much ripped off (eg. limited water and electricity available only from 6pm till 2am). Only after the tour, we realized that we could stay within the national park for much better value. Furthermore, our trip could have ended in one day, but we were arranged for a stay of two days with half of each day being wasted doing nothing, and staying an extra night which incurred more charges.
