We planned the trek with Thomas 7 months before. We were picked up at the airport by Harry, that was a great investment as we arrived at night. The next day we headed into the jungle for 3D trek. The guides Sunny and Anwar had a great knowledge of the jungle and ensured we were safe in trekking through some... More

We (6 adults, 2 kids) had a 2 day trekking trip organised by Jungle Thomas which was exceeding our expectations. The airport pickup was efficient for good value. Our 1st night accommodation was new (only 6m old room, no hot shower) and the restaurant's food options were very affordable and tasty. The day of the trek was very well organised,... More

I contacted Thomas several months prior to my arrival to arrange a 3 days/2 nights hike in Bukit Lawang. As a solo traveler, he was the only one available to pair me with a group during my requested dates. On arrival to the retreat at almost midnight, I was informed of some last minute changes with the people in my... More

Amazing weekend with Thomas in the jungle. We took a 2D package and it was a pleasure to discover the Bukit Lawang jungle: from the orang outan to the explanation of the nature but also for the human experience. Thomas really takes care of his guest: best condition for the night under tents near the river, very good food during... More

What an experience seeing orang-utans in Sumatra. And Thomas did everything to make it even more memorable. He's a really nice guy (with strange sense of humour, but we actually loved it) who, in our opinions, will do a lot to make your trip memorable. The trek in the jungle was great, the camp was great and the food he... More

The website stated 35 Euros for the one day trek but when I asked, it was 45 Euros. He said that 35 Euros was without tubing on the way back. The prices could have been clearer. The tone in the email was not friendly. Thomas is a very rich man, he has 8 inns and many tourists on his tours... More

Loved everything about it from the amazing overnight trek with up close meetings with orangutans to the chilled out environment of the lodging. Staff are brilliant and food is great. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend visiting. Thanks again Thomas and staff From Tom (small eating), Pete and Isaac!
