Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Tomok village is the area where you can find a market for tourists, the Batak Museum, and the Tomb of the Sidabutar Kings. It also has a local market area and several cafes and restaurants. It's a pleasant place to take a stroll.

A village filled with historic story and heritage. Fun time strolling the village, sight seeing, taking pictures because it was rare to see how the whole community work and how close they are.

"OLD TOMB OF KING SADABUTAR"
This is a Batak traditional village. In this village laid the ancient tomb of King Sidabutar who is the first man ever set his feet on Samosir Island. Around this place has a market that sell food, souvenirs and others. Not to difficult to find this place because its located a little uphill from main road that through the market. Its good for us to know about traditional of Batak's people when come to Samosir Island.

Tomok is a 5 km walk from Tuktuk and it provides a few attractions such as the museum, Sigale-gale, and many souvenir shops, as well as the King's stone chair. All are in the same area.

The village itself is a short walk from where we parked the car. The tour of the tombs was interesting, On the way back, you can shop for souvenirs and traditional outfits, but always remember to bargain as they have the tendency to hike their prices for tourists.

Went to Tomok Village and also the marketplace. The whole stretch consists of souvenir shops ranging to keychains, handicrafts to traditional apparels.

About 150 meters from the main entrance you will be greeted with The Batak Traditional Performance and Dance. We just observe from afar though a curtain will cover the performance area once the show begins.

Another 50 meters walk ahead will lead you to The Batak King Tomb. No entrance fee but tipping is encouraged.

Another 50 meters ahead will lead you to Batak Museum. A historical and Cultural Museum which explains about the Batak Tribe of Toba. Entrance fee is 5000 rupiah per person.

It is a must visit place in Samosir Island on your Lake Toba trip. I first visit Tomok in 1995 when no souvenir shop around. It is now well-known, more visitors then the “mushrooms” of souvenir shop growing along the path.

This village famous with Tomok Batak Traditional House, Sigale gale, King Sidabutar Tomb, and Tomok Batak Museum (5k entrance fee, ticket seller will act as tour guide to explain and solve your inquiries). They are a lot of souvenir vendor along the road, this the only place I found the Samosir kacang rondam, where we think are the best groundnut.

Enjoy the site and ignore the long array of souvenir shops unless you are in the market for some souvenirs. Bargain hard and spent some time although it is easier to spent money.
