We spent 3 nights 4 days on a trek with Thomas Jungle Tours, we were picked up from the airport without any hassle and spent the night before at the retreat (as well as the following night after the trek). Despite us both being a young couple 25 and 28 and consider ourselves physically fit, the trek is tough and... More

Awesome time with Thomas and his team in bukit lawang. If you want a real experience in the jungle this is definitely the place to be. The jungle is very wild and protected. The path are not always easy. But the guides are really helpful and adaptable to your speed. So no need to be shy. There is no road... More

We were with a group of 11 students, currently doing an internship in KL, and booked the 3D2N package with Thomas. We were picked up at the airport by two of his crew and they drove us to Bukit Lawang (3 hour drive, 4 hour with traffic). We slept the first night in a hostel provided by Thomas. The next... More

The hike was great! My husband and I got to see 4 different types of monkeys, the orangutans, and even a tarantula (eeks!). Thomas has lived his whole life in the jungle and he and his team were incredibly knowledgeable about the jungle. The food was fantastic, and the experience of sleeping in the jungle was unmatched by anything else... More

I lt was a fantastic experience! Beautiful jungle, amazing orangutans, we saw quite a lot (mostly in the threes), and we feed them. Thomas team was very nice and entertaining. The first night stay was confortable. Night on the jungle unforgettable. Of course it's very rustic but this wild life :) We had a great evening in the jungle, playing... More

We planned the trek with Thomas 7 months before. We were picked up at the airport by Harry, that was a great investment as we arrived at night. The next day we headed into the jungle for 3D trek. The guides Sunny and Anwar had a great knowledge of the jungle and ensured we were safe in trekking through some... More

We (6 adults, 2 kids) had a 2 day trekking trip organised by Jungle Thomas which was exceeding our expectations. The airport pickup was efficient for good value. Our 1st night accommodation was new (only 6m old room, no hot shower) and the restaurant's food options were very affordable and tasty. The day of the trek was very well organised,... More

I contacted Thomas several months prior to my arrival to arrange a 3 days/2 nights hike in Bukit Lawang. As a solo traveler, he was the only one available to pair me with a group during my requested dates. On arrival to the retreat at almost midnight, I was informed of some last minute changes with the people in my... More

Amazing weekend with Thomas in the jungle. We took a 2D package and it was a pleasure to discover the Bukit Lawang jungle: from the orang outan to the explanation of the nature but also for the human experience. Thomas really takes care of his guest: best condition for the night under tents near the river, very good food during... More

What an experience seeing orang-utans in Sumatra. And Thomas did everything to make it even more memorable. He's a really nice guy (with strange sense of humour, but we actually loved it) who, in our opinions, will do a lot to make your trip memorable. The trek in the jungle was great, the camp was great and the food he... More
