Helen's review for another Bamba Experience tour
4 - Very Good
“The trip is well organized. Transportation is good and clean, driver friendly and good experienced. Although I thought we would go first to Bonampak as described, we went first to Yaxchilan. We stopped on the way to have local breakfast. Clean place, clean toilets. Arriving at the river we took the boat to the site, possibility to get an experienced guide which I would recommend. After that we went for lunch which was ready for us. No waiting as we ordered what we want before leaving to Yaxchilan. (very efficient)
Continued to Bonampak, where we arrived at 4.00 pm. The murals closes at 4.30 pm and the site at 5.00 pm. So not so much time to visit. The guide was in a rush everything had to be quick and the rooms where the murals are, the guard pointed every time at his watch that we needed to look quick. No time to get in a second time or take more time to have a good look at the murals. That was a bit disappointing of the last part of this tour. I would have liked tot stay a bit longer in Bonampak.”
Gabor's review for another Bamba Experience tour
5 - Excellent
“Our day started very early, but it worth it! We were able to see the old Maya city before the crowds, and were able to take great pictures too. It is a really interesting place, especially if you like history. It is one of the few very important historical sites to visit like Siem Reap, Giza or Rome... Our guide; Marco knew every little details about the place and the Maya culture and made our trip even more exciting.”

“We didn't have to start the day super early and I really liked that they picked us up at our Airbnb place.”
On Day 1 you will be picked up at your accommodation in Padang and transferred by ferry to Siberut Island, where you will hike and canoe to Rorogot. Experience a day in the life of a Mentawai native on Day 2 before trekking to Badosak on Day 3. Trek to Kulukubuk on Day 4 and swim in a refreshing waterfall before spending more time with the Mentawai people. Return to Muara Siberut on Day 5 on foot and by motorized canoe, where you will take a fast ferry back to Padang. End your adventure with a Padang accommodation drop-off.  
You will be picked up at your Padang accommodation early in the morning and transferred to the harbor to catch a 7:00am fast boat to Muara Siberut, home of the Mentawai people. This ferry will stop at Sikabaluan and continue to Siberut, arriving around 1:00pm. Here you will meet your guide and head into the jungle on foot to reach the river, where you will take a motorized canoe to Bat Rorogot. Stay the night in an Uma, a Mentawai traditional house with a thin mattress and mosquito net.
This morning you will wake up for a bath in the river. After having a local breakfast, we will experience the daily activities of the native Mentawai Tribe, such as hunting, fishing, and making sago flour (the main food of the Mentawai). If you are lucky, you may even have chance to see the traditional dances of the Mentawai people in an evening ceremony. Overnight in an Uma in Rorogot.
After breakfast, we will embark on a 2-3 hour trek through the forest to Badosak. Explore Badosak, another mentawai town where you can immerse yourself in local traditions and practices and get to know this culturally rich ethnic minority. Observe the activities of the Mentawai such as hunting, fishing in the river, making sago, making traditional medicine, making poison arrows and other activities. Overnight in an Uma in Badosak.
After breakfast, we will trek to Kulukubuk, where we can enjoy a refreshing swim in a stunning waterfall. With some luck, you may have another chance to see the traditional dances of Mentawai during the ceremonies in an evening ceremony. Overnight at a Kulukubuk Uma.
After breakfast, we will hike and boat back to Muara Siberut, a journey of about 4 to 6 hours. Arrive in Malepet in Muara Siberut, where you will catch the Fast Ferry to Padang, arriving in the late afternoon. You will be dropped off at your chosen accommodation, where your adventure will come to an end.
