As a solo travellar that rarely uses guides, what a pleasure it was to spend 1.5 days with Rony, my Mala guide in Alor.
This company walks the talk and I have nothing but the highest praise for them.
It is meeting the locals at their best, which includes a DUGONG that did everything but get in the boat and shake hands !!!!
The money and benifits DOES get back to the locals and they are some of the most genuine people you could meet.
Go to Alor and use Mala , and experience the real deal.
