There is a meal served. Everything is fried in palm oil so enjoy your clogged arteries. They say that they have vegetarian options, but they do not. The village tour was interesting, so we were happy. Not very far from town, so the trip was not punishing like the poring springs.

A fun day out on the water. Riverbug were very professional. Communication transfers and safety talk were all good. Staff were friendly. Lunch was fine. Good changing facilities. This is a great Level 1-2 white water rafting experience and ideal for families or beginners, as it is not too hair-raising. There are a lot of stops to get out and have some fun in the water which is fairly shallow. We all had lots of laughs.…

We booked the Kuili white water rafting with RiverBug at the last moment for 29/12. Excellent organisation and management. Our raft captain DiDi was a great conversationalist and companion. So did Apao our transport lead. The lunch at the end of the course was decent at zip line Borneo site. So was the price of the excellent photos taken. Price @RM190 per pax was on the higher side as compared to other operators based on quotes received but did not mind it was it was last minute booking. Overall a 5 star of organisation and experience. …

Thumb up for Riverbug Perak at Kampar River. We have done the White Water Rafting at the Kampar River . It was a great and wonderful experience with the helpful and responsive staffs. We opt for the afternoon session that day. Unfortunately, when we reached the river , it was raining cats and dogs. So we can’t do on that Day. We were given the lunch since we have arrived. The lunch was sumptuous and good. The lunch area is just next to the river . So it is very interesting. The staff offer us to do the Rafting the next morning. They were so kind to offer to pick us up from our hotel . This is really much more than our expectation . The staffs were all friendly and they make us feel at home. Our guide picks us up from the hotel and get us ready to put on the gear . We have a briefing how to use the equipment and the safety measure . We have even a test run by our guide before we did the actual rafting. It was necessary for first timer and we have enjoyed the session. We would like to give credits to our guide , JAYZ who is very experienced. Jayz knows how much we can do and always encouraging. He always look out for us for any sudden changes of water and make sure we were safe. He always tried to make the journey enjoyable and fun . He is full of smile and positiveness. We witness 2 boats capsized and our boat is safe ( though we thought capsize the boat is fun ) . We became the recuse boat to recuse the people in the water and it was very fun. JAYZ not only a guide but also he tried to make Friend with us by sharing his experiences. Indeed , it was a good journey and experience. DOUBLE THUMB UP FOR JAYZ with Riverbug Perak .…
