I booked on line and this was easy. The Driver collected us with a clear sign. The accommodation is excellent. All staff are excellent especially Olo who made us all crippled from laughing. Restaurant staff are wonderful, tramping guides are personable and considerate and knowedgable. The jungle, the orangutans, Thomas leaf monkeys, macaque, tortoise, centipede, lizards were Really There! We... More

Jungle Trek was great and again all the staff (guide, porters, cook) were awesome and entirely focused on delivering a quality experience (great food on the trek and pretty comfortable mattresses at the jungle camp).

The natural environment is the draw card here- it's great walking through the jungle. Look out for all the ridges, there can be a lot of ups and downs involved. You need to be physically fit for it, but a good guide will gauge their guests and adjust accordingly.

We stayed four days in bukit lawang with some friends and we did the two days trek in the jungle and had such a great time! Thanks again for the hospitality, the jokes, the profesionnalism, the music ! Next time we like to stay longer !

Arrived after 12 hours travelling to be told that we could no longer do the 3 day 2 night trek , we had to do the 2 day 1 night trek despite email confirmation for the 3 day. The actual trek itself was brilliant- if strenuous!- but we wouldn't have come all that way for essentially a 1 day trek... More

Thomas is great on email. He is the owner/booker who used to trek but now manages. Easy to deal with Batak man who is quick witted and funny. The accommodation was great, the red bean and tomato soup staple diet for us with cold Anker beers. Bering your own coffee and milk if you can't live without it like me.... More

This jungle tour was certainly one of the highlights of my 5 months in asia. I cannot speak highly enough of Thomas and his entire group in bukit lawang. The jungle tour was awesome, Thomas was our guide of course and he made it very lighthearted, enjoyable and interactive! I was a solo traveller joining a group of 6 and... More

The camp site in the jungle was really... More

We took a 2-day trekking into the jungle to see the orangutans (and we saw quite a few). Thomas is a very friendly, funny and helpful guide. Speaks English very well and jokes all the time. The camp in the jungle is ok, located by the river so there is a place to wash off the whole day of trekking.... More
