We had a very beautiful trip with Guide Kiswono and are still thinking about the nice memories we made in Kalimantan during the tour. Kiswono did a super job as our guide and we have learned a lot about Kalimantan. We too still look at the pictures and remember this special tour.
Our thoughts are with you and your family.
Love from all of us.

We have done a tour for 8 days on the Mahakam river and Kutai 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!

Nila, thank you for everything ! We loved being in Kutai National Park during 3 days! We were lucky and saw orangutans, gibbons, macaques,... We will tell other people about our great experience back at home.
TERIMA KASIH !! 😊😊😊
Nila was a very nice guide to us. She is a kind and merry woman. Extremely helpful to fulfill our wishes. She put herself to the trouble of finding the home where I lived as a baby. By her accompany we really have seen it and made a nice contact with the present residents.
She showed us hospitals and schools. One school was built on the spot where the hospital stood in which I was born. Another school was situated on the spot where the former ELS-school stood where my brother and sister where going to school. She even take us to an exhibition in the library where we found a photograph of the former hospital in which I was born. Every time she fetched us from the hotel and brought us to interesting things and to different nice places to eat. She did even her utmost to help us in finding the desired souvenirs (what is a very hard thing in Balikpapan). She brought us to the Mahakam boat and also back to the hotel afterwards.
She met us at the airport at the beginning and she brought us back to it at the end. We enjoyed being with her and we clasped her to our hearts.
