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.

What an amazing crew !!. They made our life so comfortable – and contributed so much to the shoot – we were talking amongst the crew about giving our guide a producer credit on the show that’s how on it he was, and knowing of what we needed to have for a successful shoot in Irian Jaya after the first day on the job – it’s hard to find that sometimes in LA.
Overall i would give your outfit a 10 out of 10, can’t say enough about how well we were all taken care of and the knowledge of the area we traveled was unbelievable. Your guys turned out to be some of our best assets on the team out there.
The episode airs in november on the travel channel. I’ll send you a copy of the show when we finish cutting it and there is going to be an article in the october issue of outside magazine based on the expedition – will include some of those as well
Thanks again for all of your help

I represent a wildlife television series for Animal Planet and Discovery Communications called :”The Jeff Corwin Experience.” In February and March 2003, I had the pleasure of planning a filming trip to Jakarta and Kalimantan, Indonesia with the tour operator Adventure Indonesia.
I initially contacted several companies to organize the logistics of our trip and it became evident very early on in the process that Adventure Indonesia team were superior to the rest. Their patience and attention to detail when faced with seemingly countless requests and questions really made a difference in allowing the process to run smoothly. Further to that, the nature of our shooting schedule required that we alter our travel plans throughout our shoot, and with each change Adventure Indonesia made quick and high quality arrangements as necessary.
Among the services Adventure Indonesia arranged for us were ground transportation hire, domestic flights, accommodations, local liaising with wildlife experts, and satellite phone rental — all at times in very remote locales. Their far-reaching network of associates helped them to provide an excellent level of service at the most reasonable price.
Adventure Indonesia proved itself to be a very professional and resourceful organization who repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our shoot was successful. I would highly recommend them as a facilitator for recreational and professional trips alike.

I wanted to thank you for your amazing assistance in Indonesia during the Orangutan and Komodo Dragon filming of our documentary series, Kratt Brothers Be the Creature, for the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC channel.
It’s always difficult producing programmes where the location is so far away from home base, but the professionalism of Adventure Indonesia made it incredibly easy. You and your colleagues provided amazing logistical services before, during and after our filming.Every time we needed something done, there was never a question of it not being possible. My confidence in you was complete.
I would recommend Adventure Indonesia highly to anyone who needed assistance when traveling to Indonesia. Whether you were dealing with the intricacies of filming permissions or just arranging travel, all the work done was at the higher level. I give you a 5 star rating..!!!
Once again, many thanks for everything you and Adventure Indonesia did for us. It was wonderful.
