Siti is amazing. Very easy and fast communication via Whatsapp. She organized everything so we didn't have to worry about anything. We got a pickup from the airport. She brought us to our hotel and picked us up the next day to start the tour. On our way to the boat we stopped at an authentic typical Dayak house. After that we went to the boat and met the crew. They were great! Our guide Iyul was the nicest guy and we talked a lot during our 4 day tour. The chef made us amazing food everyday and the captian and the assistent made sure we got to all our stops in a save way and on time. Really not negative to say about Siti ans this tour. If you want to go to Borneo and see the Orangutan Monkeys, go with Siti!!

This was a fabulous trip - sleeping on the upper deck of the klotok, accompanied by an excellent guide, an able captain and a delicious cook ! I loved watching the forest glide by as we visited the national park. We saw lots of orangutans at the feeding stations and some from the river, as well as lots of birds and monkeys. I can highly recommend Siti’s tours and the knowledge, fluent English and spotting skills of my guide - Iyul😎

From the first contact until the last, our experience with Siti´s Tanjung Puting Orangutan Tours was excellent. Siti delivered everything she promised: on time, professionally and in a friendly manner. When our search for a tour operator began, we had no idea of the quality on offer in the Kumai area. However, Siti´s extremely prompt, courteous and informative replies instilled enough confidence in us to select her business. Thereafter, all aspects of our journey matched that same level of professionalism, mixed of course with the type of local characteristics that you would (naturally and sensibly) assume an operator in this part of Borneo might have. My wife and I did the standard 3D/2N trip and we had the klotok to ourselves. I would recommend this for couples. Our guide, Iyul, was first class and the knowledge he imparted to us about orangutans helped immensely in our understanding of what we were witnessing. That said, the journey up the river is about much more than simply seeing orangutans. It´s a wildlife adventure certainly, but it also gives a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the local people. Overall, highly recommended

We are so happy that we chose Siti for our trip to Tanjung Puting. We reached out to a few tour operators, all offered similar itineraries, and Siti was quick to respond with all of the information that we were looking for. We went with the 3D/2N orangutan tour, and we saw so much! Siti put together a crew that took great care of us during our time -- from the boat drivers to the cook to our awesome tour guide. We had so much fun with them (and with Siti!). Despite his 30+ years of experience, our guide (Andi) was humble and kind. He knew the best timing on arriving to the feedings to get around the crowds, and he was a pro at spotting orangutans in the wild. Booking a tour through Siti allows you to support locals through and through. Siti herself is a guide, and she also rents the klotok boat from local boat owners. The klotok boat is no-frills, which we liked -- it gave us a full-on authentic experience in Tanjung Puting. Siti and her team know what they are doing and will give you a very memorable trip to Central Borneo. Further, Siti is an incredibly joyful and kind person. We are so happy to have met her and encourage others to support her business!

Booked direct with Siti for a 3D/2N tour, very good communication throughout and easy to do business with. Picked up at the hotel by the guide and taken to the Klotok. Didn't know quite what to expect but it was a good boat. The capt, Mr Sabri, Chef maria and Uji the boat boy were superb but most of all the guide Iyul made the trip very enjoyable. Much is written about the Tanjung experience but we felt that we saw more orangutans in the wild than at the feeding stations which were a bit hit or miss whether any came and you spent quite a while waiting for that to happen. Ijul is a bit of an eco warrior so we did not moor at night with the other boats on the river which was wonderful: Tree frogs, monkeys etc all chattering then it all goes quiet. Very relaxing. We would recommend Siti and try to get Iyul whose English is good (he spent 17 years in the UK) and Mr Sabri's klotok - perfect for 2 people and Ok for 4.
