We, mom with three adult sons, had a great trip at the end of December with a great guide! We had a 5 days 4 nights trip starting from Balikpapan and went to the wooden village at the first day. We had a little tour on the Mahakam river and had some great views. Then we went to the village. There we stayed at a real cozy guesthouse. It was better than we expected it to be. Electricity WiFi and an AC! After sightseeing in the village we had a beautiful trip over the river the next day. We spotted multiple animals while going to the other village with a traditional dance performance. The third day we had to travel from the village to the jungle, Kutai National Park, where we did a night trekking and celebrated new years eve. Next day we had a morning, afternoon and a night trekking and saw multiple animals. Most importantly we saw orangutans in their natural habitat!
The next day, three of us stayed in bed in the morning until breakfast, but one went for an early morning trekking before breakfast. After that we went back to Balikpapan.
Our guide was a good English speaking guide who had lots of humor and was keen on helping us having the best time we could. Also Kalimantan Tour Guide arranged cars to travel in which were really comfortable and no problem to travel in for a long time.
We had a blast,
Thanks for everything!
We want to give you a good feedback !
We remember us on your nice and friendly tour to the Mangroves and to the Orang Utans ! It was a pleasure for us to have you as our guide !
It was the best tour for us in Borneo ! So we send our best regards to the friendliest Tour Guide we’ve ever had !
We will book you again if we come back to Balikpapan!
Thank you Pak Kiswono for such a brilliant experience with the Orangutans of Kalimantan. My 3 year old son is still talking about it ... although i think the highlight for him was steering the boat! Simple, comfortable accommodations on board, tasty food, a brilliant guide and a lifetime memory being so close to the Orangutans.
We even had time to plant a tree to help revegetate the National Park Forest.

It was so amazing trip ever!
Kenapa saya bisa mengatakan seperti itu? Semuanya bermula ketika saya diajak oleh teman-teman saya untuk sejenak bersantai dari kondisi rumah yang cukup membosankan. I do monologue with my self "you need break time from daily activities".
Ok, singkat cerita saya menyetujui ajakan salah satu teman saya. Kami percayakan perjalanan kami kepada salah satu teman kami yaitu Mbak Nila yang merupakan seorang Tour Guide dan dia sangat profesional dibidang ini!
Review at Trip Advisor
From the moment Nila met us at the airport, our tour worked perfectly. She's really understood what we wanted, the limitations of older travelers and our budget. Our visit to Samboja Lodge to see the orang outangs and sun bears, then up the Mahakam river to explore the backwaters and Dayak villages by motorized canoe, staying in village guesthouses was a real adventure, finished perfectly by the return downstream on the public houseboat. Our guide was perfect, informative, understanding and made us laugh..
