This is a great way to spend a day messing about on the Sarawak River in Borneo. We took our kids (7+6) who contributed enthusiastically (though not that helpfully) to our paddling. There are frequent stops to ensure that little ones don't get bored and all of the kayaking is down stream so not very difficult. The trips goes over just one set of Grade One rapids which, as complete kayaking novices, we were able to navigate without too many difficulties. The guides were cheerful chapmwhonwere armed with waterproof cameras as well as oars. A souvenir CD was produced for us of the pictures form our trip within 24 hours and at no extra cost.
Having said all of that, a little bit more guidance would have been appreciated. The principles of kayaking are not exactly difficult, but maybe 5 minutes in the water (above all demonstrating braking) before the group set off would have been helpful. There were a couple of times when one of our kayaks ploughed into the back of another one. If the kayak had hit a person rather that the other kayak the results could have been pretty painful. The risk of this would easily be removed with just a short amount of instruction.
Finally, some advice on footwear (which was lacking for us until it was too late). You ideally need waterproof shoes with decent grips. To reach the waterfall (well worth doing) you need to walk up a stream which is pretty treacherous in bare feet.
Still, a great day out and easy to believe these are the best operators on the river...still possible though for them to up their game just a little bit more and not take any new clients for granted.
