Does anyone have experience of Trans Niugini Tours

Hi! I am wondering whether to book highland tour from travel agency called Trans Niugini Tours. I can't find any reviews of the agency so I would like to know if anyone have travelled with this travel agency? 😊

1. Re: Does anyone have experience of Trans Niugini Tours

there are a number of companies with similar names

is it this company ?

https://www.papuanewguinea.travel/business/trans-niugini-tours

https://www.pngtours.com

they are very established with their own lodges for accommodation, their own planes as well as cars trucks etc - they even have their own boat of the Sepik river

you can read many reviews of their lodges most of which are from people on one of their tours

eg

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g7645160-d2337373-Reviews-Karawari_Lodge-Kundiman_Momase_Region.html

they operate at the high end with prices to match - you can find a/c, white sheets and chilled wine - if you want to see something of PNG and dislike risk and discomfort and can afford it as a once in a lifetime experience then they can be a good choice

There are a number of other tour companies offering package tours in the Highlands at more budget/midrange levels of pricing and inclusions. You can find the reputable companies listed on the PNG Tourism Promotion Authority website http://www.papuanewguinea.travel or send me a personal message for more information.

Hi! Yes this is the operator I ment. I have read that PNG is not very safe county so I am looking for operation which has good reputation. This on had actually cheapest prices I found. But please give other recommendations if you have? And btw, do I need malaria medication if visiting hinglads of PNG?

We had a spectacular tour organized by them. From the Goroka festival to the mini bus tour through the highlands. Very educational and well organized. We’d definitely use them again.
