The entire Timor Unearthed team were exceptional - all capable,  friendly professionals who enhanced our Timor experience with their warmth, good-humoured communication skills and insider Knowledge. It was clear that they all cared deeply about Timor and giving us the best experience possible. I loved the fact that they supported social enterprises and took us to the all the best places to dine and purchase lovely handicrafts and art. Highly recommend Timor Unearthed!
