We travelled to the Philippines and Flores before moving on to our adventure in Sumatra. We'd booked with Sumatra Adventure Holidays and Sue was absolutely fantastic with all of the communication. We had a 12 hour delay in Denpasar but were able to re-arrange the pick-up time with Amin (our brilliant guide) so as could get a few hours sleep! Amin was superb throughout and treated us as family.
The trip was exactly what we wanted to do, trekking in the jungle (and overnight stay) away from the other tourists. Washing the elephants - which we thought may be a bit tacky, but was great fun. Other treks up a volcano - all was very professional. We finished up with 3 days R & R at Lake Toba which was very nice. Very very pleased we chose to book with this company - would highly recommend
