    So glad you asked how my trip was. Because it wasn’t at all. For three days after booking and paying I tried to contact the operator - Phone, e-mail, Whatsapp - I got nothing. I even called Viator (costing a fortune!!) and they confirmed the trip. So we all got up early, kids were excited. And then we waited. And waited. And wrote again. And again. And then… we got our trip canceled!! I am so disappointed and furious - horrible service. Never booking again.

    Easy kayaking down river. We were well looked after. Prompt pick up. Friendly guides and driver. Saw some monkeys and sea eagle with snake in mouth. Lunch good. Climbed up small inlet river to waterfall and also swam in river. Cool temperature and fun.

    We had a great day although our backs were a bit tired at the end of the day. Scenery was great. An extra special inclusion was the photos sent to us at the end of the day at no charge. Memories to cherish.

    This was my second time doing the kayaking trip and this time it was pouring rain and we absolutely loved the view in the rain. It felt like we were experiencing the "real" Borneo in the rain with mist all over the hills! I recommend this trip to everyone who visits Kuching!

    Before going on this day trip, Audrey was very prompt and kind with my enquiries about the details and what to bring for kayaking. Signing up for the trip was very easy too. We got picked up by Mr Asin right from our accommodation's doorstep and overall it was a fun and amazing experience! Because we went on 26 Dec, which is a holiday in Kuching, many of the residents at the longhouses were at home and they were very friendly and even had us sit down and try some of their food! Lunch was also cooked at home by a local and we felt the love that went into preparing the food. My father and I felt safe throughout the kayaking. We kayaked for 2 hours (11km) and it felt too short because of the fun and the views we had. Highly recommend this adventure! (We signed up for package C.)

    This was my second time going to Kuching with a primary goal of Kayaking through the jungle and it didn't disappoint. The experience is absolutely amazing and what tops it off for me is the great pictures they take for you so can just enjoy the experience and wait for the dropbox email filled with outstanding memories!

    The scenery and activities are fun. My kids love it. The guide also friendly and 3 guide for 8 of us. They took us photos and send us via dropbox the next 2 days. Love this service provide to us. The lunch is simple. The only sad thing is the apparently the guide know there are sand flies at the areas they stop for swimming. The guide didn't inform us and only mentioned it when we are about to leave. At the end, 4 of us bitten by the sand flies till need to see doctor. what's a disappointment.

    We went during low season so there were only the 2 of us so it’s more like a private trip with 2 guides going along with us. The experience was amazing. The water was higher during low season so it wasn’t too tiring to kayak. We got to kayak into a small stream off the main river which ended with a waterfall. Totally unexpected! Water in the river was cold and extremely refreshing so we didnt feel hot at all despite being directly under the sun for 3 hours. The whole atmosphere was very serene and chill. We also saw several monkeys and a monitor lizard crossing the river. Would really recommend going during a low season ie nov-jan so its less crowded and have higher water so you dont have to work so hard. One thing though, thr were a lot of sand flies at the last stop where we got to swim so be careful and apply insect repellent beforehand.

    Well worthwhile. Like a private tour with only the 2 of us for the kayaking. Easy going kayaking down the river mostly aided by the guide's paddling. They brought us to a small waterfall. Prior to making the booking, our queries were promptly responded to. The 3 brothers (guides and driver) made our trip truly an enjoyable experience.

    If you fancy doing something a bit different this is a really great day out. We did Package B which was Semenggoh and Kayaking. Don’t be put off by the Kayaking the guides are excellent and are always on hand the help you out Also, as it was torrential rain in the morning and we didn’t see any Orangutangs they offered to drop us back off at the sanctuary on the way back so we could, which was really nice of them Don’t get me wrong... it’s not a easy morning but the efforts and the aches are worth it
