Dear Mr Tham, Lynette, and Neil.

On behalf of the Wesener's we would just like to show our appreciation for this life changing experience. Since our return home, we now have a far better understanding of our past war-time heros. From the organisation all the way to knowledge and insight far exceeded our expectations. This trek has changed our lives and we all so glad we had this opportunity to complete this trek. The three of us, will always be keen on coming back and visiting again.

Thankyou for everything,
Myles Wesener

Thank you Mr Tham, Lynette and Neil for giving me the opportunity to experience such an emotional journey. I realise I was very lucky to be part of the first group of students to complete the trek. I now have a better understanding of what my Grand Uncle Stanley and the other POW'S endured. I was proud to march in their footsteps. I enjoyed every part of my journey and will return one day.

Hi Tham,

Have just looked at the photos on your website – what a great selection - well done.

Eventhough it has only been a few weeks back at work we are really missing the whole experience that the group had on/off the trek. The combination of all your effort, happy & helpful guides was an adventure that we will be remembering for many years. Have already mentioned your website to a number of friends that are keen to travel and explore Borneo so hopefully more bookings for you. We were hoping to lose some weight whilst walking around in your heat however the food was just too good!!

A special mention must go to Lynette & Neil Silver for their passion towards such an event and their endless selfishness to create an opportunity for others to experience – very special people.

Many thanks from two very satisfied travellers

Tham, Lynette, Neil and Cat,

Thank you for another memorable experience . When I attended the opening of "The Last Camp Memorial" in 2009 I came home with many unforgettable memories. This year is no different. You are surrounded by a wonderful team who make every moment special.

Thank you also for giving those of us who cannot complete the entire trek (the 'non-trekkers) the opportunity to experience the highlights of the journey.

I know our students now understand the suffering of the POW's and will treasure the memories of this trek forever.

Finally, on a personal note; Stanley's spirit has now been brought out of the jungle- thank you Nigel and Alice.

We will see you again,

Dear Tham,

Madam Lynette was right; the photos are excellent. I will inform the students and other members of the group that they are available and will also suggest to them to write a comment.

Following is the comment that I would like up loaded onto the web page.

Thank you Tham for your thoughtfulness, your kindness and the respect that underpins all that you do. A group of children came with me to Borneo to walk a part of the Death March. I returned home in the company of young adults. Thanks to you, Lynette, Neil and the rest of your team, their lives have been changed for the better and what they experienced will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
