Both guide and driver have done a proper job showing my husband and myself what they believe is worthwhile and moreover what we feel is worth spending our time with as they understood the 8 days should be tailorfit to our wishes\ideas. Once more, we had a great time with both and I can believe we have become friends in a way. Wish Mario and Guino the best. Keep up the good work! Best wishes also from my husband.

Mario is absolutely adorable and extremely knowledgeable about all the mysteries and delights of Northern Sulawesi and Manado in particular. We had a discvery drive around together (a taste of Durian ice-cream) and a short treck on a volcano (+ the visit of the geological office on Gunung Mahawu). That was very short but thanks to Mario, we had a fantastic experience around Manado and all was perfectly organized. Do not hesitate to contact him for tours, he's a very wise choice ;o)

Tour: #45067, Trip to Lihaga Island, Likupang, Sulawesi Utara, Indonesia    view tour
Date: Aug 21/13

This has been one of the best experience in my life! A wonderful island with white sands and beautiful sunsets. We were two couples alone in the island with tents for camping: our guide has always been careful to our necessities and provided for us everything (even cookies and pasta). Such a lovely guy! Moreover at the end of the day we spent the evening singing Italian and Indonesian songs, playing all togheter, reading books and relaxing!!!! Try it!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Stefania, Grazie per il tuo commento geniale. I, myself enjoyed so much what we did in Lihaga, the hidden paradise as people called it. There were many good surprises when we were there. Ghino, Mr. Amang and Mrs. Mieke pretty much enjoyed your visits as well. I suppose Lipo too. Will always remember the songs we sing together, the simple games with bottles and tooth picks and so on. Thank you very much for your visit and using the service of Tours By Local. Molto grazie per tutto!
