I did a three-day jungle trek with Jungle Edie's company and it was the highlight of my trip to Northern Sumatra. Edie answered all of my questions promptly in the months before my trip and his driver was there to pick me up at my hotel near the airport to drive me to Bukit Lawang. I did my trek with Adhi, who was great. All he cared about was making my time in the jungle as good as it could possibly be. By the time I left town a few days later, it felt like I was leaving an old friend. The trekking in the jungle is tough and it's hot, but the payoff is great. Seeing the orangutans up close made it all worth it.

I came as a volunteer to Bukit Lawang and booked a trekking with Jungle Eddie. Unfortunately, he suddenly told me the day before we planned to do it, that he would still need to confirm it, which he then did not do and when I asked my money back in the evening, he got really childish and didn't want to reason at all what was going on and just went his way. So at the end I was just left there without any trekking and no time anymore to organise something new.

My husband and I are senior citizens. I could not have booked a nicer or more knowledgeable guide. Jungle Edie is caring and an expert in the nature of the ecosystem and its relationship to man. We saw the jungle and the animals as promised, however I gained more insight on the culture of the country and the community. He is easy to find on Facebook and had a web page. He booked our transportation, hotel and personal tour of Medan. His wife even prepared our jungle lunch. (Which a silly monkey helped me eat). We met many guides on the trails. It is obvious that he is respected by all. He also teach s English to local school children.

My boyfriend and I booked a 2 day 1 night trek and had Adhi as our guide. We were the only people on the tour which was great as we didn't want to be a big group crowding around the orangutan, and Jungle Edie were super understanding of this. The whole thing was so easy to arrange via email - they were quick to respond and also picked us up from and dropped us back to the airport, with our driver Ucho (unsure of spelling, but such a nice man, who helped us with ATM trouble) taking us somewhere good for dinner on the drive. The whole experience was incredible from start to finish. Adhi was super friendly, informative and very respectful of the jungle and all it's inhabitants (we even saw Adhi clean up after other tourists/trekkers - this man seriously respects the jungle). Thanks to Adhi we saw several orangutan, big tail macaque, toucan and punky monkey. Adhi got us as close to the animals as possible whilst also ensuring our safety and making sure we weren't upsetting any of them. Adhi also taught us so much about different natural remedies the jungle has to offer - we were amazed. The tour also provided us with amazing food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We spent the evening by a river in the jungle which was refreshing to swim in after a long day trekking. Our tent had already been set up for us to sleep in. We played some cards and chatted and laughed hard whilst watching stars before sleep. After the tour we took a rubber ring and floated down the river back to our accommodation, guided safely by Adhi and another very nice man (whose name I can’t remember, but he cooked us amazing food!) Adhi then also offered to take us to his favourite place to eat for dinner later that evening and also a few local bars playing live music - Adhi said at the beginning of the trek that we were not tourists, but family, and he truly treated us as such. We feel so privileged to have experienced the Sumatran jungle in Jungle Edie’s safe hands - thank you not only to Adhi but also the whole team who helped to make our adventure so great. We hope we will be back!!

Adhi was our guide from jungle Edie company and he was amazing! He was patient enough to take us and see orangutans, macacos, white handed monkey and the one we named Neimar monkey!!! He also explained us about birds, their voices and even found a Tucán for us to see it (from far but saw it!). The 4 days trekking we did the food was amazing, Enid our cook did an amazing job! And for finishing tubing in the river!!! Just tons of fun!! They were aware of our safety all the time and we had the opportunity to talk about the social projects the company runs(support a school, teach kids about the jungle) For sure we will be back!!!
