When is the best time to visit Manado, Sulawesi ?
You can visit Sulawesi all the year around, but as you've probably known that there is a rainy season and a dry season in Indonesia. The dry season is between Mid March and end of November. The rainy season is between December and March. This doesn't mean that you can't visit Sulawesi during the rainy season ! The chance is higher to get rain in the rainy season. In the highland of Tomohon you might get some rain showers in the late afternoon. In the worst case it will rain half a day. If you travel to the south-coastal area of the island, the chance of getting rain becomes higher. In the center of the island, it might rain all day or even a whole week in January and February

Do you stop for shopping?
Unlike some tour companies, we will not force you to visit any shops (where it is common for the drivers to receive a commission for your purchases). We do visit a local market on each tour, which is a fascinating way to observe traditional Manado culture. (And maybe even purchase a local item). We also are happy to take you to any shop you may wish to visit and can provide recommended areas to shop; such as traditional crafts, teak furniture, bamboo furniture and culinary.

What are the Accommodations used in your Package Tour ?
You have a wide variety of choices. We always provide your accommodation with Fine hotel or 4 star hotel Swiss Bellhotel, Arya Duta Hotel, Aston Hotel, Quality Hotel and more Just let us know. And if you take our hard-adventure tours like, Shore Tour & Rafting or any trekking that goes into the remote regions of Sulawesi, then you will not find better comfort accommodation than staying in the Camp or local people houses or at a very clear simple homestay.
