Sister tour was established in 11 November 2015 by us, Nina and Rini, two female local guides in Tanjung Puting National Park. We’ve worked for some local tour operators as freelance tour guide since 2010. Then, we decided to create our own company, Sister Tour, to organize trips to Tanjung Puting National Park and other areas around Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo).
Our company’s name, Sister, represents our hope to be your good sisters in organizing your trip to Tanjung Puting National Park (the homeland of orangutans in Borneo) as well as visiting Dayaknese tribe and other areas in Borneo. You may also get experience with local people’s life, culture and nature when taking a tour with us as we would like to be a good sister for local communities and neighbourhood, too.
Sister Tour has a vision to run a business based on ecotourism principles. We have a concern to conservation, community development, and education for children and woman groups. That’s why we allocate 5% of our profit to support various community programs, particularly that related to children and women empowerment.
It’s been nearly 5 years since our company started its first step. We have a better perspective of this business, recruit more new team members and get to understand millennials. We realize social media are really important nowadays for every business, especially ours. We focus on that without reducing value and responsibility to environment and social condition.
