We did the the Borneo ancien Karst and Orangutans in family in January 2020, and this was really an excellent Adventure ! Before the tour itself, Adie from Borneo eco Adventure team, was really reactive during our emails exchange and answered all my questions with clarity and kindness. He suggested also places to go on Maratua Island alter the tour. The tour itself was really great, perfectly organized, and as per the planned program. We have seen all the animals we dreamt to see, orangutans, probiscis monkeys, hornbill, tarentulas,... But what made the tour so brilliant was our guide and driver, Yansa and Ossay. They were really friendly, competent, safe and great cooks ! They took care of us perfectly, and always with a smile! Yansa has become a friend to the whole family and we thank him a lot for this great adventure ! Our kids of 10, 8 and 6 were really pleased with the jungle treks, duration and effort. The accommodations and meals were fine, specially the night in tent next to the Nyadeng lake ! The only drawback was sometimes the duration of the car transfer between the sites, but this gives the opportunity to see a lot of Kalimantan. I would highly recommend this tour and the team at Borneo Eco Adventure !

We booked the “Cross Borneo Trekking”. I had found them on the internet but there where no reviews about this trekking. I found some but they where more then 10 years old. So we finally just booked because the owner was so kind and answered al my questions almost imedeately and we where looking for a trip off the beaten track.We had an English speaking guide who picked us up at the airport. The next day we flew to Putussibau where we met the rest of the crew. The next day we left by boat with two guides (one who spoke English, one who knew the route) and a crew of two boatmen and 4 porters. After 2 days on the river we started the real trekking. The 2 boatmen left, took the boat back (against the current) and we had to carry our stuff in our backpacks for the next days. Luckily some of the porters took some heavy things from our backpacks. Every night we stoped at about 4 o’clock to build the next camp. The porters and guids made a fire place and cooked the best meals, some days we had fresh fish from the river. We crossed the river a lot of times and sometimes the current was very strong so we had to build a human chain to cross savely. Unfortunately we had very bad weather almost all day it rained very heavily so the rivers where strong and deep. Luckily we bought some simple rubber shoes on the market in Putussibau because our expensive water shoes were way to slippery.Becaus of the weather we needed an extra day to reach the destination and after a quiet scary last trip we reached this lovely little town. We met some people who where on a business trip, my boyfriend talked to them and they where leaving with a super fast boat to the next bigger city from where some car took us to the airport just in time to take a shower in the Hotel sleep 2 hours and catch the plane home. The whole trekking trip we really did not meet other people. It was extremely heavy and you really need some experience. But if you dare, JUST DO IT!The crew was great and some of them sometimes send pictures, still now after 1,5 years. I would not do it again but it absolutely is a trip I will never forget and we are proud we did this.Our trip was in August of 2017.

Hello, Thank you for your review about your experience in Borneo. Congratulation, you accomplished the Borneo toughest Adventure. The Cross Borneo Trekking is a world-class adventure, it is the most challenging trip of Borneo. I am sorry to hear about the difficulties on the trekking, the nature is really wild up there. Yes, the rubber shoes are really recommended for this trekking but the problem is the sizes of the shoes are mostly fit to the locals only. Anyway, without those challenges, the trip would not be unforgettable experience. Best wishes, Adi

We booked the 5days Kutai National Park Tour via Borneo Eco Adventures and we were more than happy. Our assigned guide Nurul perfectly guided us through the whole tour although being sick herself! She is such a friendly happy and inspiring person! Adie from Borneo Eco Adventure made sure no wishes were left open for us. He even considered our wish to have a vegetarian diet (which is not always easy in Borneo) and frequently talked to our guide about the progress of our tour! We felt save all the time and they really took great care of us! Exactly what we were hoping for a good price! You get what you book so don‘t expect any luxury, but this wasn’t anything we were seeking for. Adie was prior to our trip in permanent contact with us answering patiently and always friendly all our major and minor questions (and we had a loooot). Communication with this agency was great! We happily recommend them! If you want to see wild Orangutans, Prosbiotic Monkeys, Crocodiles and a bunch of nighttime Insects go for them!
