I have just returned from ten days in South Sulawesi and can highly recommend Yulius Pabiaran to help you with your itinerary. I normally don't use a guide, but am glad that I organised some things which saved me time and gave me an experience I will never forget. So much so, I want to move to Toraja. Yulius can assist with local transport options including your Pantai Bira - Sengkang - Rantepao trip, private car if you prefer, unique homestays that you won't find in a guide book or on Trip Advisor, accommodation, special interest itineraries and if you decide to use a guide, I can highly recommend him. He has worked as a guide for 20 years all over Indonesia and Toraja is his homeland. I learned so much about the culture and enjoyed many local experiences that a guide book would never allow me to do. December is rainy season, but I'm not sure anyone could tell you how much will come. It is a beautiful part of the world and if you want everything to go smoothly and have a real cultural experience, get in touch with Yulius on yus_par@yahoo.com and he can help with your transport and planning all over Sulawesi and the rest of Indonesia. It's a magic part of the world. Enjoy your trip as much as I did!

We have travelled through Sulawesi for 4 weeks and have met Yulius Pabiaran in Rantepao. He personally guided us 3 days through and around Rantepao, which was perfect for us. We can recommend him as a very good local guide and organizer throughout Sulawesi.

On the first day we visited one of the famous funeral ceremonies of the Torajan people. Yulius was always well informed because he was in contact with the local people there. He knew when to be at a certain place, so we did not miss anything.

Also he accompanied us on our 2-days trekking tour through the north of Toraja. Yulius guided us through rice field, bamboo forests and Torajan villages. It was really adventures and very special as we did not walk on big paths. It was definitely not touristic and that was what we were looking for. Yulius even cooked a typical Torajan ‘Bamboo menu’ for us, which was really delicious.

After we had left Rantepao, we travelled down to Makkassar and Bira. Still, Yulius Pabiaran was helping us organizing transportation and accommodation.

Thank you very much for that. You made our trip memorable and enjoyable.
