We had one of the best times of our lives on our two day trek. Because it was low season, my boyfriend and I were the only ones on the trek, with our two wonderful, knowledgable, patient and funny guides- Antonio Banderas and Indra. We saw several orangutans from afar, and then a mother and her baby up close, which... More

I had a night in the jungle, and it was phenomenal. Good guides, good English skills, and extremely good wildlife-spotting opportunities. We saw monkeys, orangutans, snakes, large lizards, a small crocodile, birds, interesting insects... On my first day, the guide took me to a bat cave too, for free, and we saw a load of bats! I spent 4 days... More

The guides are very friendly and they speak good english. At the whole trip even at night at the jungle camp they entertain you with short games and you... More

My wife and I took the 2 day jungle trek. Everything was very well organized, from the airport pick-up until the drop off. The ecotravel cottage at bukit lawang was amazing, and the trekking itself was absolutely great. We had an amazing guide ( Antonio Banderas) and amazing staff with him, who helped the group in every aspect possible! The... More

From our arrival at Kualanamu Airport, everything seemed really well organised. We stayed at the Riverside Guesthouse since the Ecotravel cottages were full. The guesthouse was nice, but incomparable it seems to the cottages. The overnight trek was great, an experience of a lifetime and I really do recommend it! Our guides were very helpful and the food was very... More

Did the 2 day trek and was lucky enough to see 5 orangutans and gibbons! Plus lots of other wildlife! The lodge by the river is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Only criticisism about the room given was that it was located on the lower ground where everything was going on so it sometimes felt like... More

I cannot say enough about this tour. Firstly, the guides and hosts were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Then you had their travel lodge. Considering the location I had low expectations for the standards of rooms. However the rooms were modern, exceptionally clean, well equipped and very comfortable. And in the morning you will be given the most amazing breakfast -... More
