A Recent Review of this tour

This tour combines everything anyone would want to see in South Kalimantan. Burdan is a great coordinator, highly necessary for the dozens of contacts and hard to access launch points for some locations. Everywhere is a different style of river culture. Boat rides are a blast. Burdan is great at adjusting to the needs of the tour group especially when weather conditions don't cooperate. The whole Loksado area is a gem, great for families since the December additions to the waterfall trail and rafting.
