This is the second time we have booked through Eco Travel. They are easy to communicate with during the planning stage and flexible. We booked to go to Lake Toba and Samosir Island and once again the friendliness, professionalism and service was fantastic. We had a wonderful time and I felt comforted by the knowledge that we were in good... More

From everything we have seen in Indonesia, the Jungle Trekking with Adi & his team was the BEST! Everything was very good planned. We felt totally save during the trekking even when you thought sometimes "how am I ever going UP there??" We haven't seen any Orang-utans on the eating-plattform, so Adi & his guys where really caring to find... More

We just returned from a trip to Asia and I have reflecting on the absolutely wonderful time we had in Indonesia. I have completely fallen in love with the island of Sumatra and its people who may be the friendliest on earth & we will definitely return, for a longer time. The standout experience for us was our time in... More

We did the orangutan and elephant trip with Sumatra ecotravel and really enjoyed the experience. All the guides were really good but Darma, our guide for the orangutan trip/jungle trek, made it for us. He was really friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate about the importance of ecotravel in Sumatra to preserve the rainforest. Everything was very well organised and it... More

Since we were short on time, we booked everything in advance with eco travel. Everything was just about perfect and the eco travel lodge in Bukit Lawang is extrordinary. All transports were perfect and we never had to wait for anybody. Thanks to the whole team for an unforgetable vacation in sumatra. Even the most touristic thing as elephant riding... More

We have stayed with Kembar and the EcoTravel team in August 2014 and we completely loved this part of our trip. We have booked the "OrangUtans & Elephants" package and stayed in the wonderful new EcoTravel Cottages. Generally speaking every single part of our stay was perfectly planned by Ecotravel and they really thought of everything. One day we visited... More

We went on a 3D/2N jungle trek with Sumatra Eco Travel. They also helped arranging a trip to Lake Toba. The trekking wasn't as hard as I thought, but the sweat was pouring off us. We had great luck in seeing more than 15 orangutans the first day, but didn't see a single Monkey the second day. That is the... More

My life is diferent now thanks to you, EcoTravel! Oh-my-god! We did a 3days trekking... awesome!!!!!! People, nature, the food (they cook so well!), animals, the river... the trekking isn't easy, you really need to be healthy, and yes, if you do the trekking you will need a few days to relax your body... but is so rewarding..!!

We did the 2d jungle trek and stayed for 3 nights in the Ecotravel cottages in the Batak room. The room was simply fantastic and not a simple room at all. Very clean and no bedbugs, cockroaches although we were nearly in the jungle. Breakfast was great with direct river view. The jungle trek itself was quite fascinating. We saw... More

If you like a challenge, the rafting is highly recommended. We were beginners, but never felt unsafe at all. The crew of team BLJ gave us a fantastic day with opportunities for swimming, a visit to a hot spring, a delicious lunch and of course good rapids.
