I just got back to New York today after our wonderful trip. I will soon gather photos to send to you for use on your website. We had two professional photographers so lots of great pictures!
What follows are some comments, suggestions and observations:
Olfied was an exceptional guide: smart, funny, fluent, a good cook. We think he was the best part of our trip! He handled things so well (calm, professional, and thoughtful) when we had to change the entire trekking plan, he put us at ease in tense situations, and took care of even the smallest detail. He is truly top notch and one of the best guides I have had in my many years of travels. The team he assembled was also excellent. He's an absolute treasure!
The northern valley trek is lovely and well suited to older visitors and those who don't want a difficult hike every day. I think it is worth promoting the north given the conflict in the southern valley--maybe worth considering a few villages even further north. We'll send pictures of the campsites as well--they were both clean and attractive. I think even when possible, the southern trek isn't for everyone.
You can recommend to clients that they buy rubber boots in Wamena ($8). And if they want to bring something for the villages they visit, they should bring eye drops, antibiotic ointment, and bandages of all sizes. These are much needed in all villages and are inexpensive and lightweight to bring along.
You might encourage some guests to consider the Baliem Valley Resort given the tensions in Wamena and the fact that more treks will be from that area north of town.
Thank you again for all of your help in planning our trip---and I promise pictures soon!
I hope you are well.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help organizing our recent tour. We had a fantastic time and your assistance with booking it make like very easy and straightforward.
I also want to let you know that our tour guide Bowo and our driver Sukir were amazing. Bowo is a very knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly guide. Sukir was also a very good driver. He was comfortable and safe and made the long journeys easy. My husband and have quite a lot of experience with international tour guides and drivers and these two are definitely among the best.
Thanks again and best wishes,Annie.
Good morning, Andri!

Borneo travel was beyond expectation - very comfortable boat, nice staff and lovely guide, who made my dreams to see orangutangs from close come true.
Flores is jewel in the crown of Indonesia! We could never imagine that there are so many things to see there. It was so unexpected marvelous, simply above all standards. Especially we would like to thank for guide in Flores - Fidel. That man is a treasure, he is worth his weight in gold. Hire him for lifetime and longer, give him double salary, make him teacher of young guides (he is good at that!) - he is worth of everything. He showed us so many interesting, with such a fantasy! made our visit to Flores the best part of all Indonesia visit. I would recommend him to all my friends. He is simply the best!
Thank you so much again. Thanks to you memory about Indonesia will stay with us forever.
