Incredible experience to be so close to the amazing creatures. The maintenance and upkeep of the camp and the habitat is not easy task. A memorable must do when you get the chance!

Me and my husband absolutely loved our day on the boat! All the staff were incredibly lovely and so considerate. They constantly went above and beyond and were always smiling too :-) They cooked us up the most fantastic feast! Some of the best food we'd had in Indonesia. They were all so knowledgeable on the wildlife in Borneo. Which was great for us, as we had lots of questions :-) We got so lucky on our trip. Not only did we get to see the incredible Orangutans, we also saw Proboscis Monkeys and 2 Saltwater Crocodiles!! Plus tons of beautiful birds and butterflies. If you are a fan of nature then this is definitely the tour for you! We absolutely loved it! :-) Thank you all again, so much!

Jennie Subaru was recommended by a friend and all the communication was very clear by email and WhatsApp. We ended up not going to Borneo for personal reasons but we will book with Jenie for sure the next time we come.

I have no words. Just wow! I had high expectations because of the great reviews here, but oh boy the real deal exceeded all my expectations far and beyond! We were lucky we found this beautiful small organization Local Guides on local-guides.org. They just completely smashed it. Fantastic guys out there, with an incredibly big heart for their nature and community. Our tour was so stunning all because of these passionate and super friendly organization that only wanted us to have an unforgettable journey (as we did!) and help their community and fight palm oil! Palm oil is a big issue in Kalimantan in general and I was so inspired by Local Guides commitment in this fight and their effort to increase awareness (without being intrusive at all) about just how much palm we – as unaware consumers – use on a daily basis! The boat fantastic! Super clean! Very charming! Simple shower and toilet (both in western style / so no squatting in the toilet fortunately!). Our guide was absolutely amazing. He knew so much about every ranger station and the park in general, and was an extremely fun person just to hang out with. And then there is the food. Yam yam PERFECT! DELICIOUS! Best food we had in Indonesia, and we had a lot of great food! Initially we were a bit concerned that this place would be just like any other touristic place where you have to constantly negotiate prices down and have to be suspicious that nobody is taking advantage of my ignorance about the area. But with local-guides I never had this feeling. Sal was always so honest with us, and on the spot they helped us arrange taxis and accommodations for a discount and never asked for any service fee. And while the tours always finish in the morning and our flight was in the late afternoon, they got us a free city tour and paid for our lunch because they insisted that we our just their guests and they want us to leave with beautiful memories. Well, we did! What a beaitufl place and what a fantastic people! Tip: Go with local-guides before they are "found"!

We booked through Fardi, orangutanhouseboattour.com, for the 3 day, 2 night tour into Tanjung Puting. It was a once in a lifetime experience. The perfect balance of activity and relaxing. The perfect mix of pampering and nature. Fardi was really responsive to emails and easy to work with. Ryan was our guide - very knowledgeable and helpful throughout. We had a full crew - guide, captain, assistant captain, and cook. The food was DELICIOUS. Price for the entire trip was really reasonable. The boat was great - well prepared for the heavy rain (a system of tarps to keep the water out). Shower and electricity on the boat. We fly into PKN and went straight to the boat and got on our way. The last day, we went straight from the boat to the airport. Would have been happy with a 4th day but didn't feel rushed with only 3 days. We saw 8 semi-wild orangutans. It was incredible. Also saw some probiscus monkeys, lots of unique birds, learned a ton about the rainforest. Recommend reading Dr. Galdikas's Reflections of Eden while you are out there to fully immerse yourself!
