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

Did a two day trekking, pretty tough but very worthwhile! Guides are very knowlegable and take very good care of you. Spending the night in the jungle was a great experience. And i'd recommend taking the tube back down the river! Thank you Thomas.

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
