MALA Tours provided us a feeling of safety and security in a remote area of Indonesia. My husband and I just came home after an 8 day 7 night fun dive and culture appreciation trip. Melissa, whom we met at Deep Indonesia, provided us all the right info when we inquired about our holiday at the beginning, especially as we wanted to brng all our diving equipment. She arranged everything for us, and helped us when our flight from Kupang to Alor got cancelled. Although we missed one dive due to some boat technical problems, we experienced 11 awesome dives with Thomas on his large boat which we had all to ourselves throughout the trip. We also had great homecooked Alorese food, prepared by the amazing Mika! Melissa also arranged for us to meet the playful and friendly Dugong, Mawar – a one in a lifetime experience. Through Melissa, we met quite a few special individuals of the Alor community like Pak O Ne, Ibu Sariat and Pak Abner -and we felt so at home with them due to them opening their way of living, their culture and homes to us. It will not be a trip that we will soon forget, thanks to the friendly and caring Melissa of MALA Tours.
