We had a great day although our backs were a bit tired at the end of the day. Scenery was great. An extra special inclusion was the photos sent to us at the end of the day at no charge. Memories to cherish.

Well organised trip. Guides are three brothers and they have very good english. The kayaking is downstream so not challenging although you might get wet getting in and out or in the rapids. There is an opportunity to swim too. Would definitely recommend as a good morning/day activity in Kuching

I would highly recommend this tour. At all times the company guides were punctual, very kind, entertaining and extremely professional. My husband & I really enjoyed our visit to the Semenggoh Orangutan sanctuary in the morning ( We were fortunate to see at least nine including two babies). The sanctuary tour was informative and very interesting. The work they are doing to rehabilitate the orangutans back to their natural environment is remarkable.
We then spent a very pleasant leisurely 3-4 hours kayaking through limestone country, tropical rainforest and mountains. We are both 65 and this activity is suitable for young and old. The trip down river was broken by a fabulous lunch prepared by the guides family. Simply delicious and there was plenty for seconds & thirds. We recommended the family open a restaurant it so so flavoursome.
This tour is an absolute must if you are travelling to Kuching and certainly a highlight for us both.

If you fancy doing something a bit different this is a really great day out. We did Package B which was Semenggoh and Kayaking.

Don’t be put off by the Kayaking the guides are excellent and are always on hand the help you out

Also, as it was torrential rain in the morning and we didn’t see any Orangutangs they offered to drop us back off at the sanctuary on the way back so we could, which was really nice of them

Don’t get me wrong... it’s not a easy morning but the efforts and the aches are worth it

Hi! Really appreciate your review. Glad that you had time to go back to Semenggoh and able to see the Orang Utans. Assuming it didn't rain that afternoon. Hope you had a great time is Sarawak. Do tell friends about our state! :)

1. Photographs were taken from a camera with outdated technology, photo quality is way below average.

2. Could swear a trip to the waterfall was promised however there was not even a glimpse of it

3. The lunch was poor and made up of tasteless chicken, dessert and vegetables. The free durians from the rainforest made up for it, but hey, its free? What about quality local food?

4. It is obvious that no one wants to work on New Years' Eve.

We made this trip with our 9yo daughter, and had a great time. All of us agreed that this is certainly the highlight of our Sarawak trip! The kayaking spans 11km and took about 4 hours to complete (including lunch stop and a detour to a small waterfall). But since we are kayaking downstream, the paddling is fairly effortless. The river view is great, and the water is mostly very shallow. In any case, we are in safe hands as we are accompanied by two very friendly and helpful guides who took lots of photos for us. Definitely recommended!

The only shortcoming of the activity is that we should be more amply cautioned before the trip about how some of the areas that we stopped (for lunch and for trying the durians picked by the guides!) are full of mosquitoes and sandflies. As a result, we were badly bitten and are still suffering from the terrible itch a week after the trip. For those who read this, it is a good idea to spray a lot of insect repellent and possibly wear long pants (the type that could withstand wet condition) for the kayaking.

My partner and I had a day free in Kuching and wanted a kyaking activity. The Tourism info center recommended two tour companies and we chose Rucksack Kyaking.
We could not have been happier.....the guides and itinerary were fantastic. First we went to Semongoh to view the orang utans. We did not see any but were pre warned that there was no guarantee...the reason being as it was the fruiting season the orangs were less likely to be enticed to visit the feeding area. This was fine as it demonstrates a successful re introduction to the wild.
Next we visited a traditional longhouse. I have viewed a few long houses before but this one felt more authentic and an opportunity to support the locals in sustainable eco tourism although there was zero pressure to purchase.
The rest of the day was kyaking along one of the tributaries of the Sarawak river accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable guides. It was great to experience such a beautiful river so close to Kuching
I definitely recommend this company and experience

Last week, students from St Joseph International School had a day of firsts.

For many it was their first visit to a Bidayuh longhouse, Annah Rais. The knowledgeable guides opened their eyes to the traditional way of life and how this has been become part and parcel of the 21st century. But for many, their first kayaking trip down the left branch of the Sarawak River was the highlight.

Safety was paramount. The students learned how to paddle a kayak, get in and out of one, and how to get themselves to safety. At all times they wore life jackets. But, this did not stop the fun. Laughter lingered as the students learned how to paddle (and a couple of them kept heading into to the riverbanks), slid through the rapids, beached the kayaks on purpose and accidentally, splashed water and dunked into the cooling waters. To say that the trip was fun is the understatement of the century.

As the approximate four-hour trip came to a close, each person, in the party of 23, hoped to keep paddling past bend after bend.

We had previously done kayaking trip in Australia and when we saw this tour decided we must do it. We have a 12 and 10 year old. On the tour there were younger children. We all had a great time. It was one of our highlights in Kuching.

Unfortunately we didn’t see any orang utans when we went to the recreation center. But that’s ok as these animals live completely free and show up whenever they feel like.
Absolutely amazing kayaking tour! It was just magical going through the rainforest by kayak. It was pretty cloudy during our tour which made the forest look even more mythical. We’ve been a group of 12 PAX and 3 guides who ever very very friendly.
