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.

The tour company was great, 10 stars.

Completely organized everything for us from Medan to Bukit Lawang.
All employees arrived before the agreed time, had great knowledge and were really helpful and friendly. They could create a great environment in the group.
During the Jungle Trek, as the hike was a bit challenging, they were helping us all the way until the final destination, even carrying younger ones.

I want to give a special thanks to Desiree that is one of the most customer-obsessed person I have ever met. She really cared to understand our needs and to find solutions for us, regardless if that would benefit her company or not. Perfect english and constant availability to provide information and help.

Also a thank you message to Lely, our Jungle-trek’s guide, that had a great knowledge of the jungle and its perks as well as had a great sense of humor and companionship.

See you soon!

Did a 2-day jungle trek with Rio and Seto and it was amazing! Rio tells a lot about the jungle and the aminals and really makes you feel like you're part of his jungle family. He is such a fun and positive guide, who really knows his way around the jungle, so I strongly recommend doing the trek with him and his friends/family.
We were in a group with one other couple, so we got a very personal treatment with four people and two guides. Along the way you get fruit and lunch and at the campsite "jungle cook" Jo made us an amazing meal. At night we played games together and had a great relaxing sleep in an open cabin with musquito net.
We managed to see five orang utans on the trek, and another one whilst tubing back to Bukit Lawang. We also saw black gibbons and a lot of monkeys. If you're visiting Sumatra, you have to go on this adventure!

We did a 3-day jungle trek with our amazing guide Lely. If you want to do a Jungle trek, you have to do it with Lely. He is a fantastic guy, very knowledgeable and a great sense of humour.
From the beginning he not only made sure that we felt save all the time, he also explained a lot about the animals and plants of the jungle. Without him, we wouldn't have seen many of the animals, like orang utans or black gibbons.
Also we had Lely's assistant guide Dika with us and our own cook Am. We never knew that food in the jungle could be so delicious and plenty.
Our rafting tour back was the perfect fun ending to a great jungle adventure.
Thanks Lely and thanks Bukit Lawang Adventure!

We are group of 6 people.
My friend recommended this place to me.
The tour company was great, 10 stars for them.
Completely organized everything for us from Medan to Bukit Lawang to their accommodation. Highly recommended Gino’s Place. Lodges were clean, beds comfortable, air-con and WiFi all good. Short distance to Bukit Lawang for Orangutan and monkey spotting.
Food was excellent and the hosts and all the staff made our group very welcome and we felt like home. Our stay was the highlight of our holiday to Sumatra. Special for ibu Nani who is take care of our food at Gino’s Place i love your chicken curry and sweet and sour chicken the best food that i ever tested. Really big thanks from us.

Also a thank you Adi and Setto, our Jungle-trek’s guides, that had a great knowledge of the jungle and its perks as well as had a great sense of humor and companionship.

See you soon!

We had the most incredible trip and the organisation of the tour was great and well communicated. Jack was the most amazing guide, he was very informative, entertaining and really cares for the nature and animals. Setto was also great! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to do a jungle trek to see the orangutans, we saw so many including King Louie.

We had an amazong experience with Jack ans Setto in the jungle. Jack was extremely knowledgeable about the monkeys and the jungle in general. We saw loads of monkeys, including orangutans. Jack is a part-time comedian and entertained us with his witty humor. He also played his guitar and sang songs with us the night before we were leaving.

Would 100% recommend!

We were with the two of us and did a jungle trek of 3N4D. Actually three people were needed but because of the low season it was okay to just go with the two of us! So already nice that that was possible. The tour was really nice arranged, got information at our hostel the night before, the guide was good enough in English to explain everything about the jungle, the food was amazing and enough every time.
We saw a lot of different animals in which we were lucky ofcourse. Our guides where paying a lot of attention to the surroundings to spot as much animals as possible. We where definitely not allowed to feed them or leave food behind because they promote to keep the jungle as it is (not influenced by humans). It is nice to be fit for the trek, but you get enough rest and also as much time as you want when you spot animals. We had a really good time!

We went for a 2-day tour with Jakha who made our experience unforgettable. We learned a lot about the plants and animals in the jungle and spotted orangutans, monkeys and even a black gibon. The whole team was incredible. Jakha is a star! He was the best guide we could wish for - knowledgable and passionate 🤩 The food was also really tasty and the whole team took a great care of us! Communication via Whatsapp was really easy. We highly recommend trek with Bukit Lawang Adventure.

We are doing the 8-day tour with Bukit Lawang Adventure.
So far everything has been great. It’s an amazing way to visit Sumatra without any worries of planning everything out yourself.

Our two day jungle trek with guide Jack was the absolute best!! He knows so much about the jungle and tells you about it with passion. There was never a dull moment: evenings were filled with games, stories, music and laughter.
We had so much fun and feel lucky to have been able to do the tour with him!
