Amazing hike to Ban Buan Kukuot waterfall from Sadir Village, in Padawan Kuching, Sarawak, made possible by my amazing hosts Abbie and Dawson of Backyard Tour and their local guides Lawrence and Eva. They really took good care of me. If you prefer an authentic nature and native tour, Backyard Tour is an excellent choice.

Had a great day with Abbie she picked us up @ the Airport we headed to a local village to see the Annah Rais longhouse. Had lunch made by a local lady with all local ingredients. Then headed to Semenggon to see the Orangutang we were lucky and seen 4 and one baby. Headed to the hot springs after it was a great day. Thanks again Abbie.

Backyard Tours provided a great tour, included all kinds of transport, food, accomodation and activities for my buddy and myself (30, m, Germany).

I´ll just want to add some comments:

- communication and booking was super uncomplicated.
- the first homestay in Kidding was great! Very friendly hosts, nice people and great food! Having some beer with the chief was good fun too !
- The second place in Lawrence village was not as good as the first one, but still a nice experience. At that point it has to mentioned, it was hard to beat Kidding, a lovely place, with even a private bamboo balcony !
- the trips and activities at both location were excellantly choosen. Even the bad weather was not a problem! Walking through the mystic rainforest by heavy rainfall was a cool experience. We saw beautiful water falls and Andreas-fall and me-fall - it was indeed good fun!

Overall Abbie, Dawsons, all the local guides and people we met did a great job and we highly recommend your company! You offer something unique in a world of all that standard trips. You cannot find it frequently that you are one of the only tourists around several kilometers! The cultural and natural experience make that trip definetly unforgettable for the two of us.

Backyard Tours provided an outstanding tailored experience for our group of 15 university students. Abbie and Dawson are everything you could wish for when organising and delivering a tour. They are professional, knowledgeable, responsive, fun, flexible and organised.

We engaged Backyard Tours to facilitate a 5 day immersive village stay at Kampung Kiding. Backyard Tours organised all transport, food, homestays, local guides, translation, language lessons, and cultural activities in collaboration with villagers. Abbie and Dawson created a program of activities including basket weaving, blowpipe game, cultural dance, rice wrapping, pepper farm visit, soccer match, interviews (as required for our course) as well as facilitating and encouraging informal interaction between students and Villagers.

Backyard Tours embodies collaboration, responsible tourism, community centred values, empowerment and fun! I highly recommend them for an experience of Sarawak like no other.

Amazing experience to immerse yourself in the simple life surrounded by beautiful nature and lovely locals in the village. Abbie and Dawson were our guides and translators and made our stay in the village run so smoothly and were awesome people to engage with!
