Wondered what to do, see or what to be aware of. Dropped a Whatapp message to Jenny Tours and got tons of useful information within minutes, including which tours are availabe for the next days. Went to Brownsberg day tour (super nice, lots of hiking). Since there was no other tours for the following days (because of COVID related issues) I asked if there is a possibility to hire a personal guide; again within minutes, the guide was arranged. Very pleasent communication.

I was not looking for a standard tour. I just wanted to go fishing and was by myself not a group. Jan at Jenny's tours help me get in contact with the best captain in Suriname. I had a great time would recommend them to anyone.

Review of: Cultural Markets
We took a taxi($3) 3.5 km north from our Downtown Oasis Guesthouse to the Saoena Zondagmarkt. This large Indonesian Market is 150 m from the 'Sanya Budaya' Cultural Center where the tall 1990 Javanese Immigration Monument celebrates 100 years since the 33,000 contract workers came from Java in 1890. This weekly gathering is a festival for the descendants, a flea market, has produce, ready to eat food, music, a bit of everything. Family friendly and enjoyable.

The good thing of Jenny tours is that they can organize a two-day tour to Galibi on a daily basis. No waiting for other people to make the tour possible. The communication with Piet of Jenny Tours was quite quick and clear. The actual tour was highly interesting and reasonably well organised including plenty bio-breaks and food breaks. The logistics did appear to involve a lot of improvisation and also some waiting on our behalf - maybe this was because we were just a party of two and had to join other groups now and then for a particular boat or taxi trip. The boat trip from Albina to Galibi (and back) was enjoyable although there was a good chance to get wet from spray and/or rain. Albina turned out to be a slightly rough edged bustling river harbour town which was interesting to see; Galibi is a small paradise with simple but adequate lodging. Guide Imro, a native from Galibi, did a great job including cooking dinner and breakfast for us at the pleasant Kadaru lodge in Galibi. we also spent about 1 hour in Saint Laurent (French Guyana) on the way back - rather a quiet town on a Monday. We did manage to see the green Turtle - although when we arrived by boat at 10:40 PM on a beach in the neighbourhood of Galibi, she was already done with the job of laying her eggs and crawled back to the sea about 15 minutes after our arrival. I still wonder why we did not go earlier that evening ... maybe the tides made it impossible. On the other hand we did not have to stay for 3 hours on that beach which was perhaps an advantage. There was that evening also a party until 10 PM in the Galibi village, which one of us attended, it was quite fun.

I recently visited Suriname during Xmas holidays. I contacted Jenny's tour before I arrived through whatsapp and Jan was extremely helpful and responsive. He went out of his way to make the tours I wanted happen during my short stay in Suriname. I ended up doing 3 day tours with them and all went great. The guides Daniel and Gio were both excellent. Highly recommend!
