"I have been dreaming about doing the beer keeper tour for a long time - and finally in november 2017 the dream became true. The experience however was much better then I what I could have imagined. I travel to South East Asia every year since a few years - and this one of my best experiences ever", Tone

"It was a great day taking many photos, very rewarding. Before we left we were given a gift and all agreed it was great value for the experience, would highly recommend", Paul

"Best time ever!  I would love to come back! The people here are friendly and everything was great. i had a great and educational day here", Norliyana

"What an absolute must for nature loves. Don't be swayed by the cost - worth every dollar to support such an important cause. You will never get to have an experience with such a cute, playful, and endangered species as the sun bear. You do so much more than simply look at the bears - you learn about their biology, conservation status, and the names and unique behaviors of each rescued and orphaned bear", Jake
