We hired David Metcalf as a photographic guide on several trips. This was our first tour with him, and WOW, was it a winner! What you are able to see may vary from what we saw, based on dates and available activities. (We went during the Festival Budaya Isen Mulang in late May, which I highly recommend). However, it is clear that David keeps your schedule full, with full flexibility if you decide to sit one out (I was too exhausted and did skip one event). You will not be wishing for more though, I assure you !

We did research in Palangka Raya and Yun was our tour guide. She along with the Central Borneo Guide prepared our trip very well. Yun is very communicative and able to convey information very clearly, especially about wildlife in Borneo and Dayak culture. With Yun, we feel the warmth and local wisdom of the people. We highly recommend Yun and Central Borneo Guide to arrange your journey to explore the island of Borneo.

All the last minute planning can only happen with the help of Yun and the BCG team!!! We went to Tanjung Puting National Park for a two-night trip on a very comfortable 'klotok' with a very skilled captain. This is probably one of the most relaxing yet very informational trip I've ever been too. I have learned so much from Yun—not only about Kalimantan but also how to travel more respectfully and consciously. Can't wait to plan my next trip and see more of Kalimantan with BCG!!!

Yun, her family and his team form a winning match. I stayed in November 2019 and Yun and his collaborator Juli organized my photo-reportage in Central Kalimantan. I can only recommend them. I felt at home, I was able to eat with them and explore incredible places. In a nutshell, I can't wait to go back!

In this trip we learnt a lot about being respectful and enjoying travel consciously. We saw quite a lot of orang utan in Pulau Kaja from our 'klotok' boat, we don't have to touch them and we shouldn't, because the orang utan in Pulau Kaja is being in 'school' (rehabilitation) to become wild again as they were tamed by humans before. The Sebangau National Park trip is also very recommended. You will go through 'black river' aka clean peat water. We were able to discover the real forest, and the guide is very open to share his knowledge on the species we can find inside there. Our CBG guide Juli was very friendly and cheerful, she taught us so many things about Central Kalimantan, her homeland. Thanks CBG!
