Dear Joan,

We are back home again with beautiful memories of Indonesia. Thank you so much for organizing everything for us, it was perfect. Everything worked out perfectly well, you are a very reliable agency and we are very happy about having been given the opportunity to discover your wonderful islands and volcanos. The hikes were stunning, wonderful people and delicious food. The guides and cooks made the best vegetarian meals for us, it was lovely. 

If we travel again to Indonesia in the future we will for sure come back to you. There is still so much to discover.

Also, if you are asked for references for future bookings I would be happy to reply.

All the best from sunny Zurich.

Cornelia and Cedric

Dear Joan,

We had a great trip, except for when I had stomach problems on Rinjani. But we made all of our peaks, and visited Borobodur, and spent beach time on Lombok. It was a good trip.

We especially liked working with Mr. Derun. We might even plan another trip to Java just because he is such a good guide, even though we’ve done the peaks we wanted most to do there.

Thank you for the excellent work you did in setting up this trip. I was afraid that Karen would find the hikes were too hard, or the conditions were a bit “primitive” for her taste – but she expresses her overall enjoyment of and happiness with the trip. She's even thinking about whether she would want to do more peaks on Java with me.

Thank you.


Mr. Franz Burgold

Special thanks to Joan, without her very friendly, informative, and detailed email answer, I wouldn’t have booked this tour (in a far away country with a company I’ve never heard before)!!

She also managed all my problems with shifting start and end points for my trip, so thanks so very very much, Joan.
The guide also very helpful and friendly the whole time. Showed best track to the summit, brought myself savely up and down the volacano. Made all my request become possible.

​Hi Joan,

We were very happy with all the aspects. While accommodation was simple, we understood this would be the case, so there were no surprises, even at the beach.

Dany was great and the drivers, Rian for our bus and Johnny for the van, were very good. Rian, was very careful and kept the bus very clean. 

Meals were very good local style, and Dany was able to find places that suited our interests and tastes. We had made suggestion to improve the picnic lunches by having hot water for coffee/tea.

Meeting weavers and dyers was definitely a highlight of the journey and having Dany explain the stories was perfect.

We discussed our program for 2018, and we will be combining Sumba with Flores. Arrives Sumba, travel to Waingapu. Fly to Flores, then back to Denpasar.
