Jeff jenkins, United States

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 what we needed to have for a successful shoot 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 Jeff jenkins Executive Producer - OUTSIDE TELEVISION Read more

Ken & Melanie Adamson, Canada

I just wanted to send you a note to share our thoughts with you about our Indonesia trip. We are very happy to have travelled with Adventure Indonesia. Your guides throughout the various places we visited, were prompt, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to spend our time with. Most of them went out of their way to let us experience the "real" happenings that go on in the different regions and provinces in Indonesia. Papua was a really difficult trek compared to what we are used to. We would like to say that we will be recommending Adventure Indonesia to our regular travel agent, and to anybody that asks our advice if they are considering a trip to your country. All the best to everybody. Read more
