Guide Bio

This is to inform you that I have been doing tours since 1992; I am originally from Flores Indonesia so I know a lot about my culture. I do offer some unique trips for travelers who are interested in learning our local culture. We have a designed tour package for joining ritual ceremony for planting and harvest where every one of you will be involved in the ritual process. This unique trip is going to be offered during the month of December, April and August every year.

    On the 3rd of September 2014 my wife and I and my little daughter were in Bali – Indonesia. We did our tour in Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Bali for three weeks. Since we still have another two weeks of vocation in Indonesia, we then decided to travel to Flores. We read a lot about Flores from home before, the Swiss Contact’s media has promoted Flores as one of the best tourist destination in Indonesia. Basically our first plan was to visit Flores but my daughter wanted to see more places in Indonesia so we three decided to start our tour from Java all the way up to Borneo and then to Flores. In the beginning it was difficult to find travel organization in Flores so we went to a book store in Ibud and finally found out a lovely Travel Guide Book that we could use for our trip reference. Back to the hotel and searched for a guide and or a company in Flores, apparently because we had the flight to Maumere on the 5th of September so we decided to start our tour from Maumere and end it up in Labuanbajo. There were a few travel companies we contacted but nobody gave us the response so we tried to call Peter Liwu, the owner of local tour organizer called PELANGI FLORES TOUR in Maumere. Fortunately Peter gave us a very quick response by email, he said that he was on a boat trip to Komodo island with his own clients so we had to postponed our flight till the next day. Peter was very kind and helpful, he offered us a very interesting itinerary where we could spend the night together with local community, learning a lot about their cultures and way of life, the most unforgottable moment was to participate the the cultural rites at Belaraghi village (my daughter was crying and did not want to see the chief slaughtered the chicken for ritual ceremony, the symbol of purification, we were all purified with the blood of chicken….wow…this is something very special for us). At another day was the trekking to Wae Rebo village, it is a terribly remote village situated on the mountain, pure of natural environment and culturally rich with their building architecture is so exciting. Our memorable trip with our tour guide Peter Liwu finish in Labuanbajo, after a day trip to Rinca island. We had a great great trip with PELANGI FLORES TOUR and Peter Liwu is a professional ESG we ever had. I don’t know how to say thank you to Peter but we always hope that there will be more people to come to Flores to see the real life of the animist culture and its wonderful nature. Good Luck Peter….
