The tour included the Orangutan sanctuary (we saw one. Sometimes you see none), kayaking (11km of wild river and forest, with some hot heavy rain), the visit of a village (cocoa bean tasting, fresh peppers) a good homemade meal, friendly guides (3 brothers) and the visit of a longhouse (the only disappointing part of the adventure: a shabby and dirty...

It was a great experiences to try kayaking for the first time and see how the indigenous dayak people live at first hand. The whole longhouse and kayaking trip was very educational, thanks to the knowledgeable guide who was born and lived in the local village.

Our goal was to escape the city so we wanted to spend as much time in nature as possible. As a result, we opted for the overnight homestay in a Long House. We were very pleased with our complete experience, the kayaking, the homestay and of course the visit to the orangutan sanctuary. While not an inexpensive tour, all was... More

Package C First off to the Orangutans at the Semmengoh Wildlife Centre. The number of orangutans you see will depend mostly on your luck during feeding time. My second visit here saw 3 mothers with their babies. You wait in the mostly cool rainforest. Ideally bring some repellent and prepare for wet weather just in case. Next to the village... More

It was our first time in Kuching and we really enjoyed the tour provided by The Rucksack. The tour started with a visit to Semmengoh Wildlife Centre, where we saw 4 Orang Utans coming out from the forest during feeding time. Next, we proceeded to the Rainforest Kayaking, which is my favourite part of the tour. We started off by... More

We had a really great trip with Rucksack Rainforest Kayaking. The guides were punctual, organised and informative. Be aware that the river can flow quite fast, so you will get wet, and might become sunburnt if you are not careful. i would also not recommend if you have no kayaking experience at all. The trip down the river was remarkable... More

Option A was a great family day trip, including a four year old. The booking and pick up was very efficient, the scenery is lovely (even on the drive out to the start), and the kayaking is gentle but fun, just right for young kids. I only drop one star because the guides were a little distant on the river.... More
