This was the highlight of my visit to Kuching. I booked the orang utan visit followed by a visit to a longhouse and then kayaking. We didn't see any orang utans as it is the fruiting season and they are able to fend for themselves (a positive thing although disappointing not to see them). Our guide was full of interesting...

This is one of our highlights during Kuching trip. We have 3 elderly, whom are still active, with us. The owner was very thoughtful and arranged to have guides accompanying our elders, so that they can enjoy the wonderful scenery yet with minimum paddling. We did not visit the waterfall as advise that the condition might be too slippery for... More

We booked a kayak tour only as we had already visited Semengoh and stayed in a longhouse. We had been in Borneo for nearly 2 weeks and it was our last full day before we travelled home. A lady called Ivy and another gentleman collected us from Kuching to take us to the kayak spot. They were both extremely pleasant... More

We booked 1 day trip which included kayaking, longhouse and Semenggoh nature park. Everything was well organized and driver was good fellow also. They even sent kayaking trip photo dvd to Finland! Guides took a lot of photos during the kayaking trip. And when you take plenty...there is always very good ones also :) we were very happy!

We picked Package A just the kayaking. We were picked up by Jackson and met up with the rest of our group who had visited the Semengoh Orang Utan centre. There were 8 of us in total just a nice number. Don't forget hats, sunglasses, shoes that can get wet not flip flops as well as suntan lotion and a... More

Booked via email prior to travelling which was a very simple experience, we set out on tour B, as mentioned in previous and recent reviews no orang utans due to fruiting season, but a pleasant hour at the Semongoh wildlife centre, bird and squirrel spotting. Kayaking was certainly the highlight of the day, we were part of a small group... More

We had a very good day at the river. The guides are excellent and the lunch provided was very good. The drive from Kuching to the river should take about an hour. In our case the driver picked us up and we had to drive an additional hour to pick up more guests from a homestay. The homestay was far... More

We did choose package C which includes visit to the Oerang Oetans and visit to a longhouse village. Picked up at 8.00 am in the hotel in time. Unfortunatly we did not see the oerang oetans in the morning during feeding time due to the season. The jungle has now enough fruits to feed the 27 oerang oetans so very... More

We were collected promptly from our hotel in the morning and escorted by Jackson, the company's owner, to meet with some other guests who had visited the Orang utans. He was great company and very informative, making the journey enjoyable. We continued on to Kayaking and were looked after by our guides well - they explained what the day's activities... More

I had a great experience kayaking and attempting to visit the Orang Utans in July. The tour is well-run and staffed, with transport, lunch, and any park fees included. The equipment worked great and the lunch was plentiful. We started and ended at the Orang Utan park to watch a feeding, but since it is fruiting season the Orang Utans... More
