I booked this without doing a lot of research, mainly because I was planning a trip to Indonesia and I saw the word "orangutans" in the description. In hindsight I should have done some research on other companies that operate in this area, but frankly I couldn't have made a better choice if I had. I feel like we got extremely fortunate. Our boat was clean, comfortable, and had everything we wanted plus some (we could even charge our camera batteries on board!). Our crew was friendly, accommodating, and did everything they could to make sure we felt like kings. And our guide Alan (better known as "Alanconda") felt like family by the end of the trip. He picked up on my son's interest in animals and planned extra activities for him that he thought he would like. HE DID! We have this ritual we do at the end of every trip where everyone shares their top 3 moments of the entire trip. All 3 of my son's were with Alan. I will say that the company needs to work on their upfront communication. Coming from the other side of the world and being a first-time visitor, I would have love to have a lot more direction (where do we fly into? how do we get to the harbor from the airport? when exactly does the tour begin and end, and do we need hotel accommodations on either end?). But once we established communication those details got worked out, and I really do feel like they bent over backwards to make this a memorable experience for us. I literally cried when saying goodbye to and thanking the crew. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us, and it couldn't have been better.
