What an experience
Nila is a fantastic guide we started the tour and it lasted all day. She took are of all our needs and provided a memorable day. Her passion towards the Orangutans and sun bears is inspiring. She speaks very good English, the car is clean and roomy and Didi is a very good and safe driver. Very family friendly.
A must do excursion if you visit Indonesia. Thank you Nila for a fantastic and educational day see you next year for another tour.

We have done a tour for 8 days on the Mahakam river and Kutai National Park. On the river (5 days) we have spotted wild life (different monkeys, birds, dolphins etc.) and the daily life of the people near the river. We met local people and even spent the night with a tribe (Kutai). The tribe had prepared a dance ceremony for us. This was very special for us and we will never forget. At Kutai park we have spotted wild life (Orang utans, monkeys, insects etc.) and spent 2 nights in the camp.
Nila, you had made a tour which fitted our wishes. And the guide Jumree was 24/7 with us. He has made our trip worthwhile with his translation (not so many people can speak English), knowledge about the area, his enthusiasm and flexibility. We have done the things which were mentioned at the tour scheme but there was also space for spontaneous things. Like visiting a Budha temple in Samarinda and discussing with the local people about, for example the Dutch influences on the region in 1946-1951 (we are Dutch, so for us that was interesting).
In total we were for 2 weeks in Kalimantan and had not seen another tourist. We had a lot of positive attention; everybody smiled, said 'He mister!' (even to me as female) and the locals wanted to take a photo of us. We never felt unsafe or being scammed. We certainly recommend this region and your agency! Good luck!

Dear Nila and colleagues,
We are still talking about our boat trip up Mahakam river which you arranged for us last September. My brother and his wife, who visited us all the way from Denmark, Arul and I all had a fantastic experience – an experience for life.
The people we met, the places we saw, the natural beauty of the river and the river banks, the rainforest – it all was wonderful. And the crew on our houseboat and the guide treated us like their own family.
The trip was a complete success thanks to your planning and guidance and we just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this wonderful experience.
We can’t wait to book another tour with you!
With our best regards,
Mona, Ib, Arul and Kjeld
