Value for money in my opinion! My partner and I have just done the 7 day 'sumatra highlights' tour with eco travel. We truly had an amazing time and would be happy to recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their time in Sumatra. We only had one week so it was perfect to maximise... More

Eco Travel organised a 15-day trip on northern Sumatra for us and to summarise, we were very happy with what we got. We spent 4 nights in Bukit Lawang including one night in the jungle. We were then transferred to Danau Toba where we spent 3 nights. After a "transit" night in Medan, our last stop was Pulau Weh in... More

We recently put together our own package with the help of this company and could not fault their prompt responses and ease of dealing. They have connections with a number of hotels and all were very good, and we stayed at Deli River, Jungle inn and Tabo Cottages. All drivers and guides used were safe and considerate. We did find...

Remeber to book in advance since its a popular tour operator. The whole experience was perfect, well worth the money. Guides where very professional and respected the nature as it should be. If you want to experience the orangutangs and other wildlife in Bukit lawang area this is your best bet. I recommend going with your own posse so you... More

Eco Travel has really pulled it off, and concerning value for money, this is a far better option than equal experiences in sabah, malaysia. Christina had arranged everything perfectly, as i rushed through my itinerary and was a little lost in all the choices. Kembar and his team really made our 2 day trek memorable..though I would have liked spending... More

We saw an abundance of wildlife, orang... More

Eco Lodge in Bukit Lawang was a lovely place to stay, well kept and clean. The two-day trekking in the jungle was excellent organized and become a lifetime memory. We saw many orangutangs, lizards, turtles and birds. Food was very tasty and beautifully serverd. I really recommend this tour if you love nature and enjoy using your body instead of... More

With our children (6 and 4), we had a great overnight trek in the jungle with Kembar from Eco Travel, and his team (in particular Tono and Herman) in May 2013. They were very nice companions for our boys who enjoyed the orang-outangs encounter, the splashes in the river, the excellent food, the little turtles in the creek, the big... More
