This is a very fun down stream kayaking activities, this is one of the 3 operators for the same route where we visited a small waterfall, did a short hiking and suppose to have a cave kayaking which we didn't do it due to the high water level. Super great for nature lovers.

We reserved this tour with paradesaborneo.com but the tour runs actually with Kuching Kayaking. We could not have dreamed of a better day of kayaking. The river undulates through beautiful landscapes, with waterfalls, caves, majestic trees, dense bamboos, and various rock formations. The guide (Beko) is wonderful, and the lunch is good. A perfect day - and a very highly... More

Really excellent trip from start to finish. Beko took us from our accommodation to the river and then back again at the end of the day. The scenery was stunning and Beko provided a lot of great information about the surroundings and Kuching in general. Lunch was freshly cooked and delicious. The river was great for all abilities and is... More

Only booked at the last minute and we were debating whether to do it because of the price. Turned out to be an amazing day! We got picked up from the Waterfront by Beko and were driven to the morning feed at the Semengoh wildlife centre. After standing around at the feeding area for about 20mins eagerly watching for any... More

The whole day was awesome. We went with two other families to the wildlife centre, longhouse, and kayaked 12 km down the river. We did it at a leisurely pace, so it was tiring, but not overly exhausting. We took lots of photos and even though it is rainy season, we had a nice, sunny day. All of the guides... More

Me and my boyfriend went on a kayaking trip with Beko. There were no other tourists. This was by far the best trip we've made on our holiday so far. Beko was very friendly, he let us take our time to explore everything and made a lot of pictures. If you're staying in Kuching, I'd definitely recommend it.

A must do if you are in Kuching! It was such a lovely day kayaking on a very scenic river. James and Beko are such lovely people and very professional guides. We coupled this tour with Semenggoh, James picked us up and took us to both activities and met us half way through out kayaknig tour with a lovely lunch!.... More

Beko took me out on my own as nobody else signed up today. He is very friendly and so knowledgeable as he grew up on that river. We went into a cave also from the river and it was hugely enjoyable. Always felt safe with my guide. Cannot recommend highly enough.

It was one of the most exhausting but also one of the most fun tours we did during our stay in Borneo. After being picked up at the hotel we went to the orangutan center (no apes in the morning) and further on to the riverside. We started the journey somewhere uphill so it would be easier. There was a... More
