We love every minute of the tour with Thomas! We also stayed at his retreat and were impressed by not only the clean and well presented facilities but the kind and genuine helpfulness of his staff. After arriving, Thomas came and personally greeted us and then sat down and told us about the trek the next day. Within 20 minutes... More

My boyfriend and I were on the 2-day jungle trip with Thomas and his team in December 2014 as part of our short 3-night trip to Sumatra. I decided to book the tour with Thomas after reading all the good reviews on the Internet. I was not disappointed; it was even better than I expected. Thomas was very prompt in... More

Literally one of the best days I've ever had - we all agreed. The guides were absolutely fantastic, teaching you about the jungle every step of the way. We saw so many orangutans and the guides were very respectful of them by the way they organised themselves - if they felt like we were disturbing the orangutans too much, we... More

Very hospitable guides. With lots of fun, humor and explanation they take you on a trip into jungle. Delicious food and good basic amenities. There is a surprisingly nice evening program! Definitely a must when visiting in Sumatra. We were surprised beyond expectation.

I had my issues with Thomas: a lack of clarity & detail over the prices and content of the pickup, guesthouse and day tour, but I take some of the blame for not pressing by e-mail and I put this down as a one off. The shower didn't work properly in my room either but frankly I got by -... More

I don't like guided tours, but what I loved about this one was that the guides were not overbearing or unnaturally enthusiastic. They let me take things at my own pace, enjoy the scenery, take a breath when I wanted and more. The camping was great, food wonderful, facilities fine, outdoor toilet nothing less than what I expected, and evening... More

We went into the jungle with Thomas on the 2 days-1 night-tour and it was the most amazing experience. We saw many Orang Utans from far, some came very close because they know Thomas and the other guides and we also saw other kinds of monkeys. The night in the jungle was a lot of fun and the food we... More
