How would you describe your vacation in a few words or in 1 word?
A perfect cocktail of everything Suriname has to offer!
Can you tell us something about the accommodations during this trip?
The accommodations were excellent. Good variation and something of everything. First, the capital Paramaribo with hotel comfort (ideal as first and last night), the hammock experience during the canoe trip was really fantastic, then in the Semoisi village with the foster family (kind of homestay), the Blanche Marie Falls in the middle of nowhere with guides who are really good cooks as well. Then Bigi Pan, also excellent! If you pick a less excellent location, it may be Apoera, but this place was a stop-over and I think that there are not many possibilities in that village. Even with children, the accommodations were perfect.
Can you tell us something about the excursions you did?
What do you think of the organization of the trip?
That is a difficult question. What will we say......What was promised/agreed to in advance has been ‘executed’ completely. We knew what to expect. No ‘hidden’ costs. Perfect guidance with a change of chauffeurs/guides which surely makes it unique! The guides were also good with the kids! Being able to make a round trip was a kind of ‘must’ for us.
Which trips from your round trip would the children recommend to other kids and why? What did the children like most?
Nice trip for our kids! In fact, they found everything nice. The advantage, of course, was the language. The things the children liked most: to mention a few points: contact with kids in Semoisi, the guides who involved the children in many matters, experiencing the flora and fauna...
What do you think of Suriname as a family destination?
As a family holiday, it is excellent. We prefer to travel as a family, not in a group. The continuous round trip was added value to us (not the trips whereby you often have to go back to the city).

"A nice relaxed and care-free vacation organized very well. I am very satisfied with the program, especially as a single traveler! The vacation in Suriname was a mix of culture, nature, and action."
"We have enjoyed everything from the beginning till the end: from Pengel to Pengel! Everything was arranged splendidly and we really felt like their guests. The vacation in Suriname surpassed all our expectations!"
"A very special experience in splendid surroundings."
"Everything was arranged very well. We were serviced completely during the trip and so we could enjoy everything we saw. The guides and chauffeurs were friendly, helpful and informative especially with our kids."
"The tour was impressive, interesting and magnificent. (I did not think before that it would be so amazing). The guides were Superb!"
"The tour was Excellent. The depth of experiences was phenomenal and I still think of Suriname almost every day - even though it's been months since I returned home. The guides were all very impressive in their knowledge of natural and cultural history and showed a true passion for sharing that knowledge. Very resourceful in the face of problems. Patient with our many questions. Willing to share their own lives/perspectives. Great humor. A genuine interest in their guests. Worked hard to understand our expectations and to meet or exceed those expectations. The dug-out canoe was very adventurous. It was nice to travel the way the locals do, rather than on purpose-made tourist boats."
"Suriname has many facets. Friendly and helpful people. Luckily Suriname is not yet overcrowded with tourist, it has its charm and is very original. Despite different origins, people get on well with each other."
"It was super fun! As a Surinamese, I enjoyed all the beautiful things in Suriname, my home country! Such as Blanche Marie Falls, the locals in village Semoisie and last but not least Kabalebo".
