Conquering Mt. Rinjani

A spontaneous decision to take on Mt. Rinjani, I embarked my climbing journey with the perfect tour guide (Kiddo) who customised, planned and arranged our whole trekking itinerary. He accompanied us all the way from start point till we scaled the highest point and back down to base camp, constantly encouraging us not to give up and most importantly ensured our safety the whole time!

My experience with Trail Indonesia and Kiddo has been the best, making our adventure at Mt. Rinjani one of my most memorable accomplishment. I am inspired to do more hikes in Indonesia, and I will definitely return to Trail Indonesia/Kiddo for their services again.

Mt Ijen and Mt Bromo

I had a fun and enjoyable trip to Ijen and Mt Bromo with Rizky as my guide few years back. He was fun, flexible and reliable. I would recommend him to those single traveller too. Though I was travelling alone and but I don’t feel bored and felt safe with him around.

Gunung Gede

We had a great trip with Kido. We enjoyed his guidance and company a lot, as well as the equipment, transfer and food provided. The view from the top of eh volcano is stunning and we woud definitely come back, if Indonesia wasnt so far away from our German home.

Had the pleasure of meeting

Had the pleasure of meeting kiddo in 2014 when I joined a group of friends for a hike at mount semeru. It was my first time trekking and I was lagged behind from the group. Feeling discouraged and wanting to give up with every single step I take. However, Kiddo was very patient and was by my side encourging me all the way. We became friends and chatted along the way, unknowingly I have reached the summit.
In 2018, I took some time off my hectic schedule and made arrangement with kiddo for a solo trip to mount bromo. We had no plans and everything was free and easy. This trip feels more like I am traveling with a friend than with a guide. That’s how genuine and welcoming kiddo makes me feel. I would definitely plan another trip with him in the upcoming future!

Semeru Summit, Top of Semeru


Been to Semeru and Merbabu with Trail Indonesia. Both were amazing journeys. Riki knows what to do and make sure we have all we need. The best thing was, I don’t have to ask all the time because he already prepared even the small request. I feel safe and comfy during those trips. Surely will go again on the next trip. Keep the good work Trail Indonesia!

Mount Merbabu

Mt Merapi and Mt Rinjani

Had the pleasure of travelling with Trail Indonesia (and Kiddo) for both trips to Mt Merapi and Mt Rinjani. We really did not know what to expect at first but Kiddo patiently guided us throughout the journey, right from the airport up to the peak and back again.

But what impressed even more than Kiddo’s professionalism was that he genuinely cared for the entire team, and was constantly looking out for their safety and well-being. He patiently encouraged everyone and made sure no one was left behind. If I were to do another hike in Indonesia, I would not hesitate to return to Trail Indonesia (Kiddo) because the peace of mind that you get with them is priceless.

JOGIA-Aug 2019

My friends and I really had a fun trip to JOGIA under Kiddo’s guide. He planned well our itinerary and provided good advices. He even told us what to prepare and bring for the trip. We visited JOMBLANG & PINDUL Cave. It’s quite a challenge for us to move on the slippery and thick muddy ground in JOMBLANG and Kiddo never failed to see and ensure we were safe.
A very responsive & caring guide and not only that, he always amused us with his good sense of humors.

I will definitely engage service again if I am going to explore other part of Indonesia.

Mount Bromo & Mount Ijen

My son Lazlo and I went on a 2 volcano tour with Kiddo at Trail Indonesia and we had the best time! I would recommend this tour for adults or even families with relatively young children (9 years onwards) as it’s a unique and unforgettable experience.
