We were lucky to arrive in Tanggwisham (upper Sepik) the day of a new festival and... More

I had initially been keen to go to the Mount Hargan sing sing, but the more I read the blogs, the more I thought the middle to upper Sepik area was a better match for my interests. I wanted to go somewhere that was culturally rich, but with fewer tourists and closer interaction with locals. I chose to go with... More

My wife and I went to the Sepik River last spring (2015). It has been one of the best trips we have done so far. The Sepik River is a remote part of Papua New Guinea where you can observe nature and have cultural encounters hardly found elsewhere. Even considering the huge amount of money it cost to visit the Sepik... More

Dear Travelers, Please be informed that a guide from Papua New Guinea named Caspar Dama is a Scammer! He organized a tour for our family in August 2015. He always lied to us, behaved absolutely unprofessionally, took a lot of money but gave the least possible service, often refused to give accommodation, services and food already paid for. Thus we,... More

We initially discovered this tour operator through previous reviews on Trip Advisor. My wife and I just returned from a trip up the Sepik River with this company, followed by a brief hiatus at the Wewak Boutique Hotel; and then on to Mt. Hagen for the big Cultural Show/Sing-Sing. The latter was handled by Paiya Tours, and I wrote a... More

As a single female traveller, I was looking for a guide who could organize my transport from Wewak to Sepik and around the Sepik River. I checked with a few guides including Mathew Alois who is recommeded by Lonely Planet. The price... More
