          Well run tour agency--the turtle tour at night is great
          They don't run the tours, they are just an agent, but they were well organized and helpful. They have an office right in front of the Torarica Hotel in the center of town and they have a good website (don't know if I'm allowed to post it) with pictures and good thorough descriptions. I showed up at 4:00 to sign up for the turtle tour that I thought left at 7:00 PM, but I had misunderstood and it left at 5:00 PM. They were very good at getting me signed up quickly, explaining everything, and getting me a cheap ride to the dock in time. The tour to see giant leatherback turtles lay their eggs was a great experience. Nice boat ride from town, decent meal on the boat after arriving, then walking the beach at night to view the turtles with a nature expert (he had a PhD). We tracked a turtle with his night vision goggles and then he turned on a red light (other colors blind the turtles) so we could watch her lay and cover her eggs. Everyone I was with liked the experience. Not everyone had signed up with them, so there are other options, but they are a good one.

          Excellent turtle watching tours
          The turtle watching tour (with dolphins and scarlet ibises on the way) was excellent -- well-run, we did see turtles in action, good light dinner provided, clear communication when booking

          Fun group tour
          Wonderful mix of history, architecture, and lots of wood! Tour guide was very friendly and kept it highly interactive. Mix of bus tour and a small portion of on-site walking. Appreciated little hints on the side, such as pointing out good restaurants along the tour.

          We did the city tour and the Peperpot tour with Elton Sweedo. He is the best guide ever! Very knowledgeable about history and the flora and fauna of Suriname. Definitely ask for him when booking your tour.

          Suriname Trips with Orange
          we made the marron cultural trip in suriname and also the dolphin day trip organized wih orange . both trips were wonderfull, the dolphin trip with Elton was very great, and we were happy to see lots of dolphins (lucky day). Elton was a very nice and funny guy, we liked his behaviour a lot, thanks a lot. Our marron cultural trip goes for 5 days. our guide Randy was the world best guide (Randy you are really the best!!! Thanks soooooo much!) We had the luck to be the only guests on this tour. The tour was really impressiv! It was a long way to Kumalu island, but a really great trip, much better with the "normal" Travel boat, then with an extra Shuttle. Why, you discovered the real life on the river with this journey. The Lodges were simple, but very nice. During the five days we had three different Lodges, every with different fittings, all were nice. But it was not a high class trip, you need to like the lower life, it*s not a high level lodge trip. For us it was perfect! Really exciting and wonderfull, to see the Life at the river, the villages, the djungel. Great, Thanks a lot. But the very best was our guide Randy, so friendly, good informed, great cooker, and never too much a guide. He felt when we needed our time. Randy, that was a really great job on our trip in November 2022, thank you sooo much! Our bookings with Orange were perfect, if we go to Surianme once again and looking for a trip, we are going to Orange, sure! (You find it near the Torarica Hotel!) Thanks to all the staff of Orange, Thanks a lot, it was great! Warmly regards Inken and Jens from Germany

          Straordinary
          We came to Greece in Hernossisos and we found a wonderful sea, but that's not all, the Orange Travel agency, proposed a day cruise to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it is called Laguna Balos and it seemed to be in Paradise, never seen a more beautiful sea, colors ranging from turquoise to green to blue, a beautiful place, I recommend it. The Orange Travel agency put at our disposal a multilingual guide, Maria, a sunny, competent and professional person, she assisted us, pampered us and we were really happy to have found also and above all a formidable human side, thanks Maria and thanks Orange Travel!

          Highly recommended
          We booked the Frederiksdorp, Dan Paati and the Peperpot tour with Orange Travel. They were very helpful with anything from explaining to us what kind of taxi to take to where to change money. They answered all our questions even months before we arrived and took excellent care of us once we were there. I highly recommend them and would definitely use their services when I return to Surinam. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

          One m ore time in Suriname
          I got to plan for a musical group to play in Suriname. So I made a fan club to come along. Group consistent of 29 total. We had a great time there. We did some tours also. Will return again for sure.

          Bigi Pan Tour and Car Rental - Responsive and Accurate - Almost a bit too fussy
          We booked a tour to Bigi Pan (Stephanie's Lodge) and small SUV rental via Orange Travel. Communication was quick and accurate. Payment can be made to a Dutch bank account which is handy for Dutch travellers and avoids money transfer fees. The car rental was executed by Dcars in the Frederik Derbystraat. We found this out fairly late and it was a bit far from our hotel, in hindsight it would have been better to know this earlier. Orange Travel obsessed a lot about the car return on early Sunday morning when we were coming from Groningen - we would have to do this at an hotel with a 24x7 reception. In practice however Dcars allowed us to park the car at their premises and drop the key in a box. Knowing this in advance would have saved us a small concern. Otherwise, the trip to Bigi Pan went as expected (fabulous) and the small SUV we rented, a Pajero, was very old but in quite good shape and served us well. Overall we can recommend Orange Travel.

          Turtle tour
          We went and did the turtle tour with orange tours. Of course there is no guarantee of seeing turtles and that is not the issue. The people working in the office that only twice had they taken a tour group there and they hadn’t seen any turtles. They made out as if it was only 2 times EVER with no turtles... when in fact the 2 tours had been in the same week we went in. Very unprofessional, and we definitely would have heavily considered going if we had been told the truth seeing as the tour costs €65

          There are other agencies!
          We took the tour from Paramaribo to an ecolodge in . It includes zip lines, kayak and a hike. They did not pick us up and had us go to a meet up point in the middle of the city at 6am, which was ok. However, we later realized that the bus actually takes some of the employees going to the lodge. It would stop every so often to pick up employees. We had asked some other tourists that took a different agency and they got picked up at 8am. I can see how it took us an additional 2 hours picking up the employees that were heading there too. I have no problem sharing the ride with employees but if you charge me a ridiculous amount of money (almost $100 dlls it is a lot on Surinam) and put me in a bus that makes +8 stops and have me be two hours early just to save another trip. I have a problem. The employees are to be picked up everyday anyways. We pretty much paid for everyone's transportation for a couple of days. Moreover, when we arrived there the reception girls were both super rude. The people actually operating the kayaks and zip lines were awesome, but the reception ladies are just angry. We were done a little early and were told we couldn't leave until the bus came back to pick up all the employees for the day.....I don't ever recall a tour where we picked up half of the staff and made so many stops to get to the place. I am just saying please shop around!

          So responsive for city tour
          There were a group of 6 of us in the city for business. We ended up with the last afternoon free and really wanted to see and get to know the city better. Our hotel reached out to Orange for us and voila and afternoon tour was created. Many attractions close in the afternoon but Vijaita (who is amazing and fun) made sure we had the best experience, answered our unending questions and power walked us through the last 20 minutes the fort was open and took us to areas she knew would interest us. I'll definitely look into further tours with Orange on further trips. My only recommendation would be the ensure they get seat belts in the bus repaired.

          Reserveration at Houttuyn Wellness Resort
          I booked a last minute spa package at Houttuyn Wellness Resort via Orange Travel. They handled my reservation very professional, quick and in a friendly manner. After I finished my spa day the employee of Orange Travel asked me if I was satisfied with my experience at Houttuyn Wellness Resort. Great service!

          City tour with Orange Travel Suriname
          Last week I was in Paramaribo and had a morning free. So I booked this City tour with Orange Travel. First things first, they were on time! I've learned and seen so much of Paramaribo. I had a female guide, she was very professional and knows a lot. They even had a timeline from the beginning of Suriname until now, very nice. I would recommend this Tour with Orange travel

          Efficient
          I booked one of my trips from the. Netherlands. orange travel was the one that gave me the most clear information including prices. I could pay from the Netherlands, which was convenient. Got my voucher throug email. Decided to book another trip with time when I was in French Guyana. Equitely convenient. To be quite honest: never saw them, never visited (one of) their offices. Everything went perfect.

        Whereas this travel agency is rather recommanded, we had a very bad experience with it. We planed to go to Brownsberg with them. They picked up us on time in a small, old coach with no air conditionning and slick tires. We asked to the manager weither it was necessary to bring food for lunch. He answered that it was up to us as there was a restaurant in the park where lunch was possible and he provided us with the expected price for the meal. We decided not to bring sandwiches with us as we were just arriving in Paramaribo and had no time to prepare lunch. Unfortunately, once arrived in Brownsberg, the retaurant was closed apparently for a long time what has been confirmed to us by a surinamese friend that we questioned afterwards. The trail to very small and disappointing falls (dry season) was stoned, difficult and tiring and we had to walk on it durin 2 hours with no food but snacks brought by the guide.
        Same story the day after during a cruise on the river for dolphin seeing: lunch was not organized and restaurant closed.
        This agency is not professional. No clear and fair information is provided to the clients. To be avoided

        Dear Visitor, I already discussed this with you on Whatsapp. We were not informed that the restaurant was going to be closed that day, lack of communication between Brownsberg en all travel agents. It is common that we can buy lunch there. The dry season is an act of nature, we can not always know in advance if there will be allot of water at the falls. We weekly organise Brownsberg tours and now the restaurant is open again. About the bus: since the Covid pendamic, not all transport companies want to drive with airconditioning, just for fresh air and when we are climbing up with the bus we never turn on the ac because it makes it easier to climh up to mountain plateau. On the other hand you could have ask the driver or guide to turn it on and if all guests in the bus agree we do turn it on when we are on the normal roads. During the river cruise we can always buy lunch at Frederiksdorp and if Frederiskdorp is fully booked or if there is a private event, we buy this at the planation nearby. We will take your feedback by heart and will improve our service that this will not be repeated. On the other hand we received allot of positive feedback lately on our social media. So I am sorry again that you had to experienced this.We are by far 1 of the most wellknown tour agents in Suriname and we will always try to satisfy our customers. Customers are very important to us. We would like to know how we can make things right with you? Kind Regards, Orange Travel
