My partner and I arranged a jungle trek with Thomas before arriving in Bukit Lawang, do not be put off by Thomas' emails or relaxed nature in confirming details as his spoken English is perfect and is a very friendly guy! From pick up at the airport to drop off everything went smoothly and we had a great time. We... More

My boyfriend and I did a 2days/1night trip to the Jungle with Thomas Jungle tours. Upfront, we have to say "thank you" to Thomas for being very flexible when we had to change the initial tour on very short notice as my boyfriend got very sick and wasn't able to do the planned 3days/2 nights trip. The tour itself was... More

Thomas is a great tour guide and is passionate about saving what is left of a shrinking jungle. There is no guarantee that you will meet any animals on your trek but we were fortunate enough to come across a number thanks to the way Thomas and his team and the other guides communicate. Please if you go pay attention... More

We did the three days two nights tour here. We got a little bit scared because of Thomas badly written emails but it turned out he speaks it much better. Our guides knew a lot of the Jungle and we saw a lot of orangutans and other cool animals. The first day the trekking was not that difficult, we had... More

One of my favorite bars in KL A nice bar with good music.Not as big as clubs such as Zouk etc. Nice place to get in touch with people and the music isn't too loud so you can still have conversations. Nice staff en drinks. We were with a group of 11 students, currently doing an internship in KL, and... More

Sing that to the tune of "Jingle Bells," and that's pretty much our theme song during our 2 day trek! While Thomas himself wasn't there because he had been leading another, longer jungle trek, he was extremely professional and directed us to his friend, Erwin, who gave us all the information we needed. We decided to do the 2 day... More

Thomas and his staff are really helpful, friendly, charming and most of all, entertaining. They made my trip memorable and I would definitely recommend others go with Thomas. He was always looking out for us and he knows what people want to do and he spares nothing in making sure you enjoy.
