    I really enjoyed the half day heritage bike tour with Paradesa Borneo. Kelvin Lu, my guide did a fantastic job in guiding me through the streets of Kuching and took me to sample one of the best Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee that I ever tasted. I also tried a very unique coffee (with melted butter on top) in one of the traditional old school coffeeshop. The friendly couple who owns the shop even showed me how Sarawakians used to drink the coffee right off a tin can with a string tied to it. The half day cycling tour was very well curated and spanned several location which includes the spice market, weekend market, mosque and kampungs and ended with a nice boat ride back to the city centre. I thank Kelvin for his generous sharing on the sights and sounds of Kuching during the bike tour that make the cycling trip so enjoyable. I will definitely check out more bike tours with Paradesa Borneo on my future trips to Kuching.

    The guide, Kelvin Lu was excellent. He was very patient and took care to take a leisurely pace on the bicycle. He was also informative on the different sights. Overall, we had a very enjoyable trip. Highly recommended.

    Great half day cycling tour for us as family of 4 with a 7 year old (hired own bike) and 4 year old (on back of adult bike). Our guide, Lister, was great. He got the pace of the tour right with refreshment stops to try local drinks and foods plus pointing out the sights. Kids enjoyed buying bananas in the market. Finished off with excitement of putting bikes on a sampan to row across the river. Would recommend strongly.

    Great and safe experience with Paradesa Borneo. We’ve visited the quiet kampungs of Kuching, and experienced the hustle and bustle of the local morning market. A big kudos to Delilah for the guided trip!

    Many thanks to the informative Farha always looking out for our safety and it was such an enjoyable ride visiting heritage buildings, streets as well as the beauty of the sarawak river around Kuching. Very much recommended for a family who enjoys a bike ride as it is not too intense, relatively relaxing for family who are used to exercising.

    I did the half day heritage bike ride around Kuching & had a wonderful time. Ride was very easy. I felt very safe. I was fortunate to be the only person on the tour so I had exclusive attention from my guide. I definitely saw areas of Kuching that I would not have seen on foot. The markets were great fun & very educational as I was able to ask questions about all sorts of products. We came back on one of the little ferry boats across the river which was fun. My bike was top quality & in good condition with a comfy saddle. Water was provided, along with a helmet. Happy to recommend.

    Die Tour war superschön. Der Guide hat mir viel erklärt und mir vieles gezeigt, dass ich ohne ihn nicht gesehen hätte. Zwischendurch gab's was leckeres zu essen und trinken und auch die Bootsfahrt am Ende der Tour habe ich sehr genossen!

    Delilah was an amazing guide. She is so friendly and easy to talk to. We had a great afternoon learning about Kuching and Malaysia in general. The bike tour was a nice length and moved a a comfortable pace. Delilah took us to great places to stop for snacks, drinks and food. I can't recommend her enough!
