*** END OF SERVICE ***
Dear Jeffri and Ferdinand,
I would like to say a big thank you to you and all your staff for the organisation and effort that was put into organising our expedition professional and friendly. I appreciated having Mambung, Heru and Chandra.
It was a pleasure to work alongside Joshua who was immensely good at organising and leading the group, I could not have asked for a better guide.
The group had a wonderful experience, it was definitely a challenge, but also the addition of visiting temples and museums made it culturally rich, a well rounded pleasurable learning experience. .
Overall the students thoroughly enjoyed their Java experience!
