We added a trip to Tangkoko to the end of our dive holiday. We are fairly casual birders, tacking on days here and there when we are in bird locals. Previously, we had never gone anywhere specifically to bird. We planned to see two birds of paradise in Waigeo, Raja Ampat, and thought as we were in the "neighborhood" we... More

We did the day tour to Tangkoko National Park with Safari Manado tours as we didn't have time for overnight tour. We are not usually tour people but were so impressed with this company. It was high quality and very well organised. Firstly they organised the private tour with less than a day notice which was much appreciated. We were... More

The boat was operated smoothly and the guides had good judgment in choosing the location and seeing the current. I could enjoy snorkeling at 2 points and the scene... More

It is really hard coordinating a perfect vacation to a place literally across the world. A place you have never been to, a different time zone, a different language, etc etc. I spent SO much time trying to research on my own on all the various travel forums.
