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

The website stated 35 Euros for the one day trek but when I asked, it was 45 Euros. He said that 35 Euros was without tubing on the way back. The prices could have been clearer. The tone in the email was not friendly. Thomas is a very rich man, he has 8 inns and many tourists on his tours... More

Loved everything about it from the amazing overnight trek with up close meetings with orangutans to the chilled out environment of the lodging. Staff are brilliant and food is great. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend visiting. Thanks again Thomas and staff From Tom (small eating), Pete and Isaac!

It is a nice place really friendly staff Only the water pressure is really low and no hot water what they promise on the website And the owner Thomas is very rude to the guests I recan he want to have more money out his guest and push them to order meals and book longer trips

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
