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

Wow!! Absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend going with Thomas. Really well thought out trip, the guest house is very pretty and very clean, the food is all absolutely fantastic, the guides were really great, very knowledgeable and very personable, the actual trip into the jungle was great fun, although tough physically! 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

We booked an overnight jungle tour through Thomas' Jungle Tours. With a group of 6 tourists (American, Dutch, German, and English) and 2 guides we saw many orangutan, ate well, and arrived at the jungle camp tired but happy. The hike was challenging. 2 more guys waited at camp to cook and visit with us during the evening. I can't... More

I'm ashamed that it's taken me this long to write a review (I went on a trek with Thomas in May 2014), so unfortunately, I won't be including many details. The bottom line is: don't hesitate to go on a trek with Thomas. He and his staff/friends are the best and the other guides were so helpful and friendly. I... More

The jungle tour was a great experience. The guide was friendly and funny. Unfortunately it rained a lot but still is was a experience of lifetime. The food was delicious, the tour was exhausting but to see the Orang Utans that near was special. The tubing back to Bukit Lawang is great and a lot of fun. Thomas Guesthouse is... More

We spent 3 nights 4 days on a trek with Thomas Jungle Tours, we were picked up from the airport without any hassle and spent the night before at the retreat (as well as the following night after the trek). Despite us both being a young couple 25 and 28 and consider ourselves physically fit, the trek is tough and... More

Awesome time with Thomas and his team in bukit lawang. If you want a real experience in the jungle this is definitely the place to be. The jungle is very wild and protected. The path are not always easy. But the guides are really helpful and adaptable to your speed. So no need to be shy. There is no road... More

We were with a group of 11 students, currently doing an internship in KL, and booked the 3D2N package with Thomas. We were picked up at the airport by two of his crew and they drove us to Bukit Lawang (3 hour drive, 4 hour with traffic). We slept the first night in a hostel provided by Thomas. The next... More
