Super good and complete tour. Our guide was very nice and good, but his English could be better as it could be difficult to ask him questions. The hotel was also a little worn, and we had a visit from a lizard in the room, and you definitely have to be careful if you get seasick because it rocks wildly when someone passes the footbridge. A super cool experience and worth all the money and we would do it again

It was a wonderful trip, which was not least thanks to our wonderful and lovely Wan! Her German is really very good and she put a lot of effort into making this experience unforgettable for us. Thank you very much for that! Absolute recommendation.

extremely kind, attentive, attentive guide, private excursion for 3 to the lake, exceptional safari and hiking with lots of animals. We are very satisfied with this 2 day excursion.. I recommend it.

Ding was an excellent guide and safe driver. We were able to observe wild monitor lizards, snakes, lemurs and monkeys and learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the tropical rainforest.

Excellent guide, a great tour in a private setting
