Brilliant morning kayaking down the river. Off peak so it was just us - a couple and our 5 year old son. Current was a bit strong so we got through real quick. The brothers were lovely and made sure we were safe and had a great time.
Highly recommended!

We booked a 11km kayaking trip through the company Paradesa Borneo. Their provider is Kuching Kayaking. I'm not sure how you can book directly? Our guide Bako was really lovely and experienced. The kayaking was easy going and went through forest that is Bakos own stomping ground, so he can talk a lot about his knowledge of the area (he is First Nations). We got to see a little waterfall and go swimming under some cool cliffs. Very relaxing and immersive experience. 8-3pm. Loved it.

Our trip down the river with Beko was fantastic
A great and unforgettable day out
Beko was just the best guide and we learnt so much about the river that he grew up on and loves so much.
A must do in Kuching!

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.

This was a great day out! We kayaked through the river for over 4 hours, stopping for a local lunch en route. We even spotted a few wild monkeys on the way! I would definitely recommend this tour.

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 very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this day out and take a couple of beers with you for.

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 signs of orangutans, the feeder told us that there were a couple of them up at the car park. We raced up there and got so see two sisters hanging around inspecting their audience. Amazing to see them up close! Another couple joined us from there and we went to Kayak, took about 30 mins. The whole time Beko was talking to us about Borneo history and was very friendly. The kayaking was great, nice and relaxed and you don't even notice the time. He was constantly showing us things and telling us about the area. Stopped for noodles at a small village then carried on with the beautiful scenery. Ended up back at his village in the afternoon where u can shower and change. Would recommend wearing swimming trunks as you can go into the waterfall and swim in the river.
We were so glad we took the trip, well worth it. Even the drive to the place is great to check out the scenery of the rainforest.

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 were experienced and professional.

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!. Beko our kayaking guide was wonderful and welcoming. His knowledge of the river and it's surroundings was great. It was a lovely experience and I would definitely do it again!
