Eco-friendly Wantok Tours is in fact a brand name for a local tour guide who operates solely as a freelancer and commissioner with his local network based in Madang. Theodore Baworo is a former graduate of Divine Word University, who holds a Bachelor in Tourism & Hospitality Management and has extensive knowledge and experience in organizing inbound local tours with village experience within Madang province.

He has worked casually for several tour companies and latest with Ecotourism Melanesia as a tour coordinator and currently receives contracts from Ecotourism Melanesia (Tour Wholesaler) based in Port Moresby in escorting and providing guide for the international tourists. Theo’… has broad experience and extensive knowledge in planning tours with village experience within Madang province as well as other selected provinces in Papua New Guinea.

In addition, Theodore has had different opportunity to travel and experience different living conditions in countries abroad with his overseas education background and has had experience in coordinating holydays for MGS scholars during his time at Melbourne Grammar.

His main objective is to market simple village tourism projects (natural attractions, cultural experience, historical sites, guesthouses or village home-stay and life-style, arts & craft, myths & legends, etc) to both overseas tourists and domestic holyday-makers  within PNG; so that locals can generate income for themselves and become self-reliant within the informal sector of the tourism industry. By doing so with his conservative ideology, is to protect and preserve PNG’s natural environment and its habitat and the indigenous cultures.
