Chickenfeet Travels was started before we even knew it.  Here are reviews from customers and references from friends who have traveled with us or have done recon trips on our behalf.

Sibayak and Lake Toba 4 days 3 nights
May 2018

Lake Toba was unexpected, you wouldn't think a place like this was found in Indonesia.  The weather was cool and perfect, everything was so green and clean.  We did a one day boat trip to a waterfall and that was one of the best afternoons I have had.  And then we did a culinary tour which started at the markets and ended with us eating what we prepped and cooked for lunch.  Everything was fresh and delicious. 
I recommend travelling with Chickenfeet as they incorporate stops along the way to make the drive seem shorter. Sipisopiso and Sibayak were great additions.  Thanks, looking forward to my next trip.

Jogja, Bali, Lombok, Flores | 3 weeks
May 2018

Chickenfeet planned out my family's visit perfectly.  Jin was so flexible about where we wanted to go and suggested better routes for us as well.  We loved all the local guides that we had in each place.  Flores was beautiful, Bajawa and Kelimutu were unexpected and stunning.  My family and I learned so much about the different cultures in every single location, we hiked to panorama views and villages, we dived and saw a manta and relaxed in some of the nicest local hotels.  Unforgettable.

Chickenfeet travels made our weekend adventure incredible. They showed immense flexibility in helping us with logistics & ensured that we were happy throughout the trip. The company used to guide us were experienced & professional; willing & able to accommodate the groups varied needs. 

Rinjani was tough! A once in a lifetime experience however we will definitely use Chickenfeet again.

Mar-Dec 2016

I was sent to Singapore for 9 months and I knew I wanted to make the most of my work placement with as much weekend exploration as possible and two bigger trips when my sister and boyfriend visited.  Chickenfeet was great.  Jin laid out all the options I had, what she thought would be the most spectacular and memorable, and I just had to pick from the few.  I chose to trek with orangutans, bathe with elephants, zipline in the jungle, dive with mantas, go way off the beaten path and see Flores, and visit Hoi An and more.  These were some of the best holidays I have ever done.  Everything was affordable, everything was perfectly planned, and I would recommend anyone to travel Chickenfeet if they just want the best of the best.

Bukit Lawang 3 days 2 nights

An easy, exciting, and great weekend away from Singapore.


Rainbow from Hong kong@mythary
north and South Lombok 4 days 3 nights

Northeast Lombok is nothing like the Lombok you see in any travel sites.  Island hopping with world class white powdery sand beaches, strawberry picking on the mountain and having the most extraordinary view of the plantation on Rinjani is just a perfect long weekend getaway.  Those Gilis are some of my favourite beaches in all of Southeast Asia.

Sri Lanka 2017

We can safely say that Chickenfeet made our holiday. We had a set itinerary in place, and after two days, the wonderful driver that Chickenfeet organised for us, suggested some changes having learnt a little more about us. Even though it meant more hours behind the wheel, and a change in several bookings, we didn't have to pay a cent more, and every recommendation was a hit. Chickenfeet made us feel genuinely cared for.  


Gerald from UK
Pulau weh and Banda Aceh 4 days 4 nights

I had heard good things about Pulau Weh from other divers but arranging the trip myself was a big hassle. Fortunately, I found Chickenfeet who were great - they organised all aspects of the trip and made what would otherwise be an complicated transit, very simple. Their 24 hour support was invaluable as traveling in remote Indonesia is not always straightforward.


Ben from UK
Bukit LAwang and Bali 2 weeks +

We really had a super time in Indonesia and would very much love to go back some day!  For us, the highlights were Jungle Trekking and meeting the orangutans in Bukit Lawang, snorkelling with manta rays just off Nusa Penida, finding our own private beach on Nusa Penida and exploring around Ubud by scooter (we found an off the beaten track waterfall which we had to ourselves too!).  It was a real pleasure to meet Yande, Gede, Thomas and his guides.

Once again a GIANT THANKS for helping us make sense of all the things we wanted to do on this trip and for your part in putting it all together, we really appreciate your time and effort!

I cannot speak highly enough about Chickenfeet Travels.  Chickenfeet truly made our trip to Indonesia one of a kind and absolutely epic.  Everything was so well planned out and our itinerary completely maximized our two weeks there.  Junxiu did an excellent job connecting us with local vendors on the ground so that all of our transports, internal flights and accommodations went smoothly; and beyond that, all of the guides we worked with along the way were extremely friendly and knowledgeable.  During our trip we got to experience everything from hiking in the mountains of Java, where we took in breathtaking sunrises, to snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Nusa Lembongan and relaxing with cocktails on the beach.  My favorite stop was a three day stay in Tunjung Puting National Park where we were able to see critically endangered orangutans in the wild; I would have never known where or how to make that booking without Junxiu's recommendation.  Chickenfeet Travels uses their expert knowledge of the area to handcraft an unforgettable trip tailored to your interests with just the right balance of adventure and relaxation.  They take the stress and worry of planning a vacation and make it fun and easy to explore new places abroad...I can't wait to book my next holiday!


Andrea from USA (ca)
Bali and Chiang Mai 1 week +

I had to visit Singapore for work and I wanted to see what Southeast Asia had to offer.  I reached out to Chickenfeet and they helped me pick and plan my week perfectly.  I experienced Thai and Balinese culture, ate so much good food, and met some of the nicest people on my trip.  I would have been so lost without Chickenfeet, they really helped make the most of my week of travelling.
