Although it's raining, it's more enjoyable to sit on the rooftop than in lower deck. The highlight of the cruise is a cultural dance. We were also served with orange cordial drink and finger size kueh lapis. The children loved the performance but got a shock when the guy suddenly stomped his feet and shouted as part of the dance.

Enjoyable way to end the day. Relaxed with a nice breeze. Seeing the sights along the river. Nice to be able to have a cool beer along the way

Nice, relaxing and breezy trip along the Sarawak River on the cruise. There was a tour guide to introduce the landmarks by the river, too. Enjoyed the view with a complementary cup of drink and layer cakes. Ended the cruise with a performance of the local traditional dance. Worth the 2 hour ride!

I went to the cheaper boat ride. Not the bigger boat but the smaller boat, sampan-like. This ticket counter is further down the waterfront path. 19RM per person for one hour. We went from 530 to 630 pm. If you've road a boat in other SEA countries, this would be boring for you. Nothing new to see. But the breeze... More

Great commentary along the tour on this spacious open boat. Not too many passengers and it felt like a luxurious tour. The price is also very high (includes orange juice and cake). I did not care about the traditional dance show on the way back. The sunset was beautiful!

It was nice weather with clear skies when we started the cruise, we managed to get good seats on the open deck. The boat is big and clean, they provide a drink (with free refills) plus 2 small slices of layered cake (this could be further improved as it was not tasty). The cruise was informative with good commentary. Great... More

this river cruise is too ordinary.. while conducted in English its content just fall short..ther isn't much along this river..also my trip was marred with audio problems and the performance was cancelled as a result without a sincere word of apology..this shouldn't happened if they have a backup,, solve this to save the cruise

It was a wonderful experience using Mr.Rusic 014-8868059 of Kampung Santubong boat for river- ruise and satang island snorkeling........ They will pick you up either by van or boat from you hotel, it is a free transfer.....really a thoughtful arrangement giving tourist peace in mind by not worrying about the reaching jetty of the boat. With experienced boatman, you will... More
