I had the pleasure of meeting Mul and his family during my stay at a local farm in Bayan, Lombok. Not only was Mul friendly, he was accommodating to my travel schedule and we were able to book multiple excursions. Although I've driven a motorbike in the past, I did not feel comfortable riding on Lombok. Lots of people + animals cross the road at unexpected times; the roads are not lit nor are they clearly marked for an unfamiliar eye; the roads are not well-maintained and can be dangerous due to potholes and dirt. Since I did not feel comfortable riding my rented motorbike, Mul and I took off together on his bike. Mul was a very safe and cautious driver. Because Mul drove, I was able to enjoy the view and relax. Mul provided background information on the day to day life of people in the local villages, the agriculture, the language as well as historical information. It was comforting to have a guide who spoke English, who was a good driver, who was knowledgeable, who had a great sense of humor, and who was well-known in the area. As an added bonus, Mul was my personal photographer at the sites that we visited together. I would encourage travelers who are seeking an authentic experience to reach out to Mul. When I return, Mul and I will trek up Mt. Rinjani! In the meantime, for those who are looking for a guide for a trek up Mt. Rinjani, Mul is your guy! Safe travels!

Muliadi was our amazing guide during our 2 days/1 night tour of Mt. Rinjani, Lombok, Indonesia. He hosted us in his house the night before the hike and he and his family had been very nice. During the hiking we were accompanied by Muliadi and two super strong porters (Agus & Mar) who carried our tends and food to the top. We are not expert in hiking mountains and Muliadi is very helpful in any kind, not only about the food pace and breakes during our way up. He gave us information about Rinjani, about Lombok traditions. Beside the amazing experience of walking on the rain forest and the beutiful view from the top, we strongly reccomend a tour to Rinjani with Muliadi because of the kind person he is and how he contributed to enjoy the experience which in several point had been hard. Cheers, Marghe (Italy) & Mulya (Indonesia)

We had the pleasure of hiking the Rinjani until the crater under the guidance of Muliadi. We did it in a group of 4 friends, Muliadi and 2 porters, Riwaji and Agus. We enjoyed an amazing experience with them and felt completely safe throughout the entire hike. Muliadi is super friendly and made us laugh with his village stories. I especially appreciated his honesty around the Rinjani "industry", how the porters were doing, the price we paid and their wages etc. Also very flexible, I felt he did anything to make the trip for us pleasant as possible. He has his own favourite lunch spots, allowing us to chill and recover quietly instead of sitting with the 100 other tourists on the road. He also kindly lent me a jacket since I didn't have one. Last but not least, his price is from far the best we have heard around us. Can't go wrong with him as a guide!!

We were fortunate enough to have Muliadi as our guide in Northern Lombok. We met Muliadi through our home-stay at Saifana organic farm. We did not come prepared with an initinery, however, Muliadi suggested many possible outings. We never felt pressured to accept, rather he presented each option objectively. He allowed us to choose the option that suited us best. He was very patient and flexiable. Muliadi took us on a beautiful, soft hike to the waterfalls and then the rice fields. On the hike, Muliadi was talkative and personable. He continuously engaged in interesting conversation with us. His English is strong and it is easy to get along with him. We felt as though we had another friend on our journey. After our outing, Muliadi invited us into his home. He shared personal stories about his family and insight about Indonesian culture. We felt welcomed and enriched by the authentic experience he offered to us. We highly recommend booking Muliadi as a guide for any experiences in northern Lombok. He is incredibly reliable, knowledgeable, and friendly. We wish him much success in the future!

We did the 3 days/2 nights Rinjani trek to the summit and the lake with Muliadi and his team, it was absolutely amazing ! They were very nice and helping, the food was incredibly good, the new equipment (tent, sleeping bags, floor mats) was great. Mul was very funny and caring. He offered us a really good price. You can book with him beyond doubt, he will do everything he can to make you comfortable. Thanks a lot to everyone, we will never forget that trek !
