We aren't staying in Kuching for very long time, but we want to do the jungle trip either trekking or by kayaking and at least see the long house. We got the Rucksack leaflet from the tourist information in Kuching Airport and find the tour interesting than the other tours. We just called to reserve the tour and somebody came... More

I booked package B with only a basic idea of what we would be doing. After being picked up on time, I was whisked away with my fellow day-trippers to the orangutan sanctuary for feeding time, where we were lucky enough to see 4 orangutans and a baby. After this brief (~30 mins) stop, we headed for the river where... More

I did the one day kayak tour; 11km kayak down the Kuching River, lunch at local village and tour of village's spice and herb gardens. Rucksack seemed to be the only tour company to offer the village tour and lunch in addition to the Kayaking. Lunch was delicious and locally made, including homemade curry puffs and coconut treats. I had... More

The kayaking tour was great although a bit too lo g (11km is not nothing!)! But the guides and the driver especially were very friendly and made the day special. The tour was combined with the visit of the semenggoh orang utan reserve were more than one, namely 6, orang utans were seen!

They picked us up at our hotel, took photographs on the water during the trip, arranged lunch and made sure we could focus on enjoying the wonderful surroundings of... More

We went on the orangutang and kayaktrip in April with our two kids 3 and 8 years old. Everything on this trip was just perfect. We saw four orangutangs and had a fantastic day on the river. Beautiful scenery, fascinating noises from the forest, delicious lunch and our two fabulous guides gave us interesting facts about the tribes, the river... More

The scenery and view of the rainforest was amazing! We were provided a Malay lunch and our guide took piccies with his underwater camera, which we are now... More
