Testimonial

In July 2015 we visited the beautiful island of Flores. I would like to thank you for assigning Peter Liwu as our guide during our 8 days trip by minivan from east to west. Peter has a thorough knowledge of the culture, the different tribes and nature of Flores, speaks English very well, and on top of that is a very nice person.
