Pie is great old man, with good sense of humour. He took us down the river with great deal of care, advice and fun! Then shared a lunch at his place with the skippers and family. Great pictures and videos! Teens loved it. If you plan todo call him and ask for the water he knows when best moment.

Outstanding experience for rafting. Professional and a bonus of solid food. Good English used as well, which was a plus. We use them with our Duke of Edinburgh groups and they love it.
Just be sure to let them know in advance if you are ok getting dumped in the water or not, as it is standard for the industry here to do so.
Goodjob pie & team.. had lots of fun! Instruction is clear and food provided is delicious. Thank you for the experience. Surely will repeat.
Was there 2 weeks ago with bunch of friends & my eldest son. The rafting trails are marvelous. Pie & his boys are all well trained in any situation during ride. I'll be back as I've hurt myself during this trip but it's purely an incident as I do not hold tight enough during the 1st waterfall drop & my back landed on the person behind me knees! Through out the rest of the falls our boat have been given safe route priority due to my injuries. Thank you so much for both Pie boys that guide us out the trails safely & fun.
Mr.Pie is a seasoned rafter. It was a nice experience rafting with experienced people. They are safe and the food after is amazing!
Amazing experience by Mr. Pie and team! Lunch was good too. Definitely worth a try!
It was the school holidays and we decided to visit this place. Although the water that day was quite shallow, we still had lots of fun. It was a challenging but very memorable family adventure. Mr Pie was very helpful and was uptight about our safety. The safety briefing was easily understandable. Although it was our first time white water rafting, we listened to their instructions and never toppled even once. The rapids kept us laughing and smiling with happiness. We recommend everyone to visit and have an awesome blast there.
Really experienced guides, great customer service from Mr Pie and his team. Lunch provided was delicious too! Will be back again n soon.
I first got to know Pierose through one of those experience gifting companies and it was our first time white water rafting so we didn't know what to expect. It was the best adventure ever, full 4 hours of avoiding water (at first), avoiding getting wet (at least for me), lots of laughter and screaming and paying attention to the safety instructions. We felt very safe and very comfortable with the entire Pierose team. Their equipment and instruments are of very high quality. They know the river like the back of their hands. Pie goes above and beyond to take photographs of you, believe me, he does not miss a single shot of your face as you plunge into the river. We went back again about half a year later and Pie actually remembered me! Overall, great experience, if you are thinking to raft for the first time, Pierose is the one to look for, highly highly recommended.
All around this was a great experience. The guides know the river, and it's complications well, and are seasoned at navigating. Mr. Pie is safety minded and looks out for all his patrons, experienced or not. His instructions are clear. Moreover, a day spent with these guys is made more fun with their sense of humor and genuine enjoyment of their work. The passion for the river and the sport is clear. As is their passion for food - Lunch at the end was some of the best food I've had in Malaysia, and it is clear that they bring the same passion for cooking as rafting! I would do this again anytime I have the opportunity.
I went for KKB Waterrafting with Pierose.
Place : +40minute from Kuala Lumpur (by car/taxi)
Amount : MYR 180 (Kuala Kubu Bharu)
Duration : 4 hours
Distance : 4-6 km of river stream with Level 1-4
If you never try it and feel a little bit fright, no worry just try.
It will be fun and chill.
I joined one of their rafting event last 3 years. As I remember, it was fun!challenging! and get your adrenaline rushing!
With RM180, you will get 1. Fun filled, drenching wet and thrilling white water rafting. From Downstream of KKB Dam to KKB town. 2. 2 meals which is snack during the break time and lunch 3. Safe parking and showering facility. 4. Photos of your action!
They are usually available on every weekend. Confirmation and reservation can be made via jomoutdoor on facebook. And guess what, after 3 years, the price is still RM180... :-)
Please dont expect much on the shower facility.
This was a fantastic experience. We had a great time. Make sure to give them lots of notice - and try to be flexible. The Selangor River is the best but the water level depends on how much water is released by the dam that day. Pie won't know that until the morning. So it's good to be flexible.
I've been rafting with Pie and his team many times over the years in Kuala Kubu Bharu (and sometimes Slim River), and I've never been disappointed. I've been back with them with many different groups of friends because I'm comfortable with their attention to safety, detailed safety instructions, and generally great attitude.
One would usually leave KL at 7am, and be back by 4.30pm. They provide water, lunch and snacks, and a place to clean up. It's recommended that you wear sandals with a strap/covered shoes.
While they can't control water conditions, they will always look to give you a great rafting experience regardless. If one river doesn't offer great conditions, they will bring you elsewhere.
My only issue is that they sometimes book too many groups. This doesn't present a safety issue because of their safety-oriented practices, but it does get a bit lengthy because you'll have to wait for other rafts to clear certain points before moving on.
Regardless, I always come back to them because I trust that they will show me a great way to experience nature, and will get me and my friends home safe.
Book with Mr Pie +6013-3613991, It's RM180, no GST charged. The journey from town to Kuala Bharu Bharu Post Office meeting point is around 1 - 1.5 hours journey. Mr Pie is the person in charged at Selangor River and he gave a very loud and clear guidance to the newcomer and rafters. His team of boat guide are amazing people too! there are also local foods been provided after the who rafting journey! I met a german & canadian couple there, they said they have been to water rafting in thailand and bali, but the selangor river experience is so far the best experience ever.
Mr Pie, the owner of this company, is the man to be with. Me and my wife felt safe with his detailed explanations prior, during and post whitewater rafting. We went down Ulu Slim river which was a blast. Both the team captains were experienced. I am a seasoned white water rafter and at the end of the day this is what you need, experienced staff. Safety is always top priority.
Besides that, enjoy the fun bumpy ride to the river and good moderate food. Be prepared to get wet and really wild!
I decide to join this water rafting at last minutes decision and it totally worth it. Me and two of my friends meet at KKB and Pie bring us to the starting point near the KKB dam. The rafting took about 2 hours plus along the 7km sungai selangor. The water was good at the time starting rafting and Pie was hilarious. We join another team to balance the raft and it was so thrilled
5 of us guys from Kuala Lumpur decided to go river rafting on a sat (26/7/14) and my friend Wong came across Mr Pie and his crew. Most of the reviews below have thoroughly explained the procedures and the experience of rafting in the Hulu Selangor river in Kuala Kubu Bahru. As a avid outdoorsmen who has been up mount KK and diving in the west coast to depths of 20m, white water rafting i can safely guarantee is ranked up there with one of the best adventures i have had. Basically, you do not have to do any paddling at all as the guides actually do all the work for you (navigating, paddling, steering and scouting ahead). You just have to sit back and enjoy the ride with rapids from class 1-4 to give you tons of adrenalin and fun. My friend Wong even fell into the river at the first class 3 rapid, but was fine and we laughed it off. The guides really put safety above everything else and will give you the most informative knowledge you would like to know about the humidity, pressure and water levels of the river if you ask. An interesting story of how they got the name PieRose, Pie is the name of the operator and Rose is the name of his Wife and they also have a son (forgot his name) but he is a wee bit plum guy but extremely funny and entertaining throughout our journey. Price is also alright which is RM 180. This family business is extremely good and i really encouraged people to try river rafting in Malaysia with them.
My friend and I had a really fun time rafting the Slim River with Pie. This is a family run business with someone who is a pioneer in whitewater rafting in Malaysia. Pie's crew is well-trained and know the river well. We were the only Westerners on the day we went (with about a dozen other people) and felt very welcome. The spirits of everyone was very positive and fun-loving. We met up at the post office in KKB and set out for the river as a group. The equipment is all as up-to-date as when I have been rafting in the US and Canada. The training was quick but thorough. The river was lovely; we stopped for swimming and snacks and finished up with a home make lunch by Pie's wife. We had a good chat with Pie (who has a great sense of humor and a deep love for the environment) and others at lunch. All-in-all a wonderful day we will always remember. Note that we were there during dry season. If you are too and Pie warns the river is low, take his word for it. You may want to reconsider going if you are averse to getting stuck on rocks! We had fun despite that.

I have come out stronger from this great outdoor rafting. Certainly great for bonding with your team mates and the river is just fascinating. Half way down u come across a small water fall for refreshment. In all a 4hr down fast rapid. Go for it.
Pie picked us up from the train station, sorted us a hotel overnight (cheap and clean - very good) and even took us for a tour round the town to make sure we knew which places were good to eat!
He then picked us up from our hotel and took us to the rafting (all this service he did for nothing!) which he runs. There were around 40 people who seemed to be mostly Malaysian. Pie was fantastic and integrated the whole group well, the rafting was exciting and fun and then a huge tasty lunch was provided at the end. Pie was going to give us a lift to the train station too! but a Malaysian couple offered us a lift back to KL.
Would highly recommend - Pie is a generous, hilarious guy who made the whole experience that much better. My girlfriend and I were gutted to say goodbye as we found him too funny!
I went for this water rafting trip on 23rd Feb.. It was wonderful.. We went through three huge rapids, 1st canyon... chicken drop and 2nd canyon...and few small drops... simply love it! The shower room and toilet a bit run down..but hey! we are in KKB to shower dont we?
A colleague arranged for 12 of us to go whitewater rafting one weekend, and we went with Pierose Swiftwater.
There are two sites they operate: Slim River, Perak, and Sungai Selangor in Kuala Kubu Bahru (KKB). We were initially scheduled to go to Slim River, but the morning of the trip, Pierose called us and directed us to KKB instead, as the water levels were better. Despite the last minute change, we were quite happy with the level of clear communication Pierose maintained with us throughout the morning.
Upon arrival at KKB, we found the crew all ready and waiting for us. We had a short breakfast at a nearby mamak, then was directed to the river site. There was a short briefing on the schedule for the day, then those drivers of cars who drove up to KKB were led to park their cars at the end point (where a jeep would then ferry them back to the river site) while the other participants made a half-km trek upriver for some basic practise on how to float with the life-jackets. It was great fun floating a ways down the river to the original start point!
Once the drivers had rejoined the group, we were given a safety briefing. Pierose was quite good at that, giving amusing instruction whilst still maintaining clarity & ensured everyone understood (almost all the participants that day were first timers). Briefings were conducted in English (very good command of it) and sometimes lapsed into Bahasa, but if you didn't get anything then all you had to do was ask.
The crew then pushed the rafts into the water and the groups were divided up fairly quickly. Two guides then got into each raft and off we went!
All in all, I was very happy with the experience, despite some nervousness and not knowing what to expect. The crew were very capable, knowledgeable and professional. Good sports, too! Spotters were stationed at key points of the rivers, and rescue for those flung overboard was fairly quick.
All in all, the excursion lasted about 4 hours: 1hr for gathering & briefing, 3hrs for the actual rafting. Pierose ended the trip with a delicious lunch for all participants, as well as showering facilities (at the KKB site, anyway).
Be sure to bring sunblock, a towel and dry change of clothes!
