We went with Anto and Kakao and had such a great time. We saw many orang utans, even holding hands with them. We saw many lizzards, monkeys, birds and waterfalls. Nature was astonishing, the walk was quiet hard but super fun. The rafting was really cool and totally safe. The two had a lot to offer and to show. When necessary they were professionall when we were hanging around we ve been like friends. They also introduced us to the other locals. We spent the following days with them and we were singing, playing the guitar etc.

The jungle trekking was a great expereience and a little adventure. Spotting the Orang Utans was the highlight. We saw many of them and got very close. Very unfogetable! But the nature is faszinating as well. We saw several animals like monkeys, peacocks and chameleon. I also liked very much that we showered in the river (Tip from me: bring eco-friendly shampoo) and slepet surrounded by the sound of the jungle. But what made this not only a good but an awesome experience: our guides! They took very good care of us. It was amazing! Lunchbreak in the middle of the jungle with great food and fresh fruits, teaching us a lot about the jungle and just having fun with us! Thank you very much Evo, James, Igal, Adjat, Hendrik. At night we played cards with them and back from the jungle track we spend one more night making musik together (they are very good musicians! Playing the guitarre and singing!) Thank you Anto for the perfect organization! He also helped us by organizing our time after Bukit Lawang. I wouldn't miss this experience. Tim & Julia

I highly recommend doing a tour with Anto and his team. We did a 3D2N with them in the jungle and enjoyed every second! The guides handled every Orang-Utan encounter properly so we could get very close to these amazing creatures without feeling unsafe.

We had a 1-day trekking tour and it was awesom. We saw many orang-utans from whom we took wonderful fotos and videos. We had encountered other wild animals too and the nature was stunning. We have been provided with a unforgetable experience.

First: Thanks for the awesome jungle track! Everything was pretty good arranged. Anto, one of the organisators, did a really really good Job. Airport transport to Bukit Lawang, Transport to the Hotel, really good food, nice Hotel and still an amazing 3 days Trip. The guide carried everything you need (food, water, cigarettes, ...). Reeeeally good. Friend of mine and I booked a 3 days Track. Best decision ever! Asked for Amin and Ibo. The best guides in Bukit Lawang. You will see! I hope I see you soon guys, Michael.
