It was a last minute planned getaway for me and my family of 7 on last Christmas. I chanced upon Tri Jaya Tours and liaise with Diana ; whom was super friendly and understood my family needs. I travelled with my niece (3 yo and my in laws who were about 70 yrs old) She gave me some useful insights on Medan which was extremely helpful. On the day of arrival ; we were greeted by our awesome driver ; Dedi who was undoubtedly knowledgeable , kind and accomodating. We wanted to taste Medan's local cuisine as soon as we landed and he brought us to a fancy restaurant with a good spread which was a reasonable pricing. Afterwards, our journey commence to Lake Toba and the journey was undeniably enervating and long but Dedi humoured us with his local folklore and was also kind enough to make stop pits for us at any time... + Lake Toba was serene and gorgeous. The journey was worth it ♥️ 2 days afterwards, me and my two teenage daughters aged 11 and 13 climbed up Mount Sibayak to catch the morning sunrise. We had engaged Tri Jaya services again for the outing and of course with Dedi again as our driver. He picked us up punctually at 2.30am local time at the hotel lobby as promised. Though it was very much pre dawn, Dedi's driving skills did not falter. He was careful and was very much alert. Fast forward, we were half dead after our ascend up Mount Sibayak ( but again definitely worth the sweat and pain 😄) - Dedi brought us to a small quaint eatery for lunch. Pretty! The day lead on with our trip to the local fruit market and we ate yellow tasty local durians. Yummy! In a nutshell, if you intend to visit Medan save yourself the trouble and book yourself with Tri Jaya Tours. Look for Diana (she's the boss!) and ask for Dedi 😄😄

Really interesting day trip from Medan, lots to see and experience in the surrounding countryside. Great views of the volcanos and Lake Toma, and fascinating to see something of village life. Mr Erwan was an excellent, safe, driver and guide.

It’s some risk of booking a tour package online but Tri-Jaya did not disappoint us. We like their choice of hotels especially Tabo Cottage at Lake Toba and Deli River in Medan. 4 of us travelled comfortably in the 7-seater car driven by Nasih, taking so many photos during this 5D4N trip. Looking forward to revisiting Sumatra with Tri-Jaya!!

We enjoyed a 7 day tour from Medan to Lake Toba , berestagi and Bukit lawang. Our driver mr. Yoel was exceptional, he catered for our travelling needs, stopping when we asked, making sure we were ok as we travelled. The booking process was great and we had regular communication with the company to ensure all our arrangements were right for our arrival. I highly recommend Trijaya Tours to all travellers.

I booked this tour for my girlfriend and I when we travelled from Malaysia to Medan in August 2019.

Before the trip:
I contacted Tri Jaya day tours and two other vendors in regards to a day trip to Lake Toba. Diana from Tri Jaya day tours promptly attended to me and gave me all the detailed information and pricing I needed. For my small requests that I had in regards to adjustment of timing and food this was all accommodated by Diana. The other two vendors did not offer a day tour of the Lake Toba area and were not flexible in their offerings so I ended up booking under Tri Jaya paying an initial deposit.

During the trip:
My girlfriend and I were picked up from our hotel in the morning by a driver named Pandi who spoke acceptable english. Our itinerary consisted of Lumbini Buddhist temple, Gundaling Hills to view the volcanos, Brastagi fruit and vegetable market, Lake Toba observation deck and Sipiso waterfall observation deck. The most memorable being scenic views of the two active volcanoes from Gundaling Hill, breathtaking views of Lake Toba as well Brastagi market which has the most fresh colourful fruit and vegetables I have ever seen. It was a lot of things to do in one day and we ended up reaching back to our hotel around 8pm.

If you are planning on a trip to Lake Toba I would recommend you to spend at least 1 night near the lake area. This tour just provides just the views of the Lake (which is still great) but you don't actually get to go all the way down due to time constraints.

Other than this, it was a very well planned day trip from Tri Jaya. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone else who was in Medan for one day and would recommend you choose to book a tour through Tri Jaya for their professionalism and service.

My wife and I both had a great experience with Tri Jaya tours. Our tour organiser, Dina was very accommodating with our needs and was easy to work with. Our private driver, Pandi was very professional, drove safely, did not smoke in the car and always made sure we had what we needed with a smile on his face. Overall, a very positive experience. I would recommend Tri Jaya to anyone interested in experiencing the culture of Sumatra and the Batak people.

We decided to use Trijaya as our private Medan / Lake Toba / Brestagi tour, after read number of good review from Tripadvisor.
My group have a great 5 days private tour and thing get well arranged.
The most impressed me is the last day farewell dinner which arrange at Deli River Hotel and they serve us delicious traditional Indonesia food dinner.
We love to stay at Deli River Hotel too. This cottage hotel is surrounded by wonderful tropical garden, pond and provide relaxing atmosphere.

I deliberately chose Travel Agency Tri Jaya for their knowledge of both colonial and touristical Sumatra and I was in no way disappointed. The journey was a good mix of recognising old places and experiëncing new ones. Hotels were all comfortable and clean with very good breakfasts. The Tri Jaya hotel Deli River is a little paradise in the hectic city of Medan.
We had a fantastic driver/guide Deddi. English speaking, driving safely, knowing lots of interesting things about the places we visited and very friendly and helpful.
