    The tour gave me an excellent insight in Indonesia: it's culture, food, people, nature, religions and beliefs. The best of all was having a local tourguide, who was able to teach us so much about his country.

    Having everything organised for you by a warm, friendly and funny CEO is an invaluable asset, especially when navigating a completely different country, culture and language.

    I had an amazing trip and there was something to do for everyone. It is also easy if you want to see a lot but don't have a lot of time to planning

    Great trip, but a lot of extras trips should be included and the groups should be smaller.

    It's not the first time I've used this site for 3 very good reasons. It's easier to navigate than most of the individual companies websites, it's a one stop shop (all the tours from the different companies are in one place) and to top it off its often cheaper than going direct
