    Amazing tour, everything exceeded my expectations. The 3 hour drive to Bukit Lawang was long, but the driver was very skilled in trying to get out of the morning traffic jam of Medan, after that it was full speed ahead. The tour guides Ucok and Tondi were excellent, they were very knowledgeable about everything in the jungle and also things outside of it. From differentiating between male and female Giant Ants, to the different types of plants and trees, and of course, the lovely orangutans and Thomas Langurs. They work well in a team, with Ucok going on ahead to find the orangutans while Tondi lead my friend and I through the jungle while giving facts about interesting things he sees. Ucok and Tondi were also very friendly, social and hilarious, making it feel like we're just trekking with our friends. I'm not the most fit person, but the trek didn't feel tiring and it was a good balance between walking and taking a break. We had plenty of time to watch the Orangutans; the guides were very chill and let us enjoy the nature at our pace. There was a lot to see, do and enjoy. Lunch was in the jungle and it was very delightful, with pineapple and passion fruit for dessert. After the trek we headed to the river and we were able to dip into the river and have a swim. After the long trek, it was very refreshing to have all the sweat washed away by the river. A great ending to the day!

    We hadden een 1- dag trip geboekt vanuit Medan. Veel dieren gezien: 2 moeders met baby Oerang Oetans en een mannetje, Withandgibbon, Thomas Leaf apen, grote Argus fazant. Ucok en zijn broer waren erg enthousiaste gidsen! Zeer aan te raden

    Our day started with our driver picking us up at our hotel in Medan. It was 3 hour drive to Bukit Lawang. When we got out of the car, our guide Ucok was waiting for us. We picked up his brother Tondy on our way to the border of Gunung Leuser National Park. Within 10 minutes we saw our first orangutans. A female with a baby. In total we spotted 8 different orangutans during the trekking!!! It was such a lovely and exciting day. Ucok and Tondy are really passionate and have a lot of knowledge about the jungle. They can tell you all about the animals and the trees. We can really recommend booking with Ucok and Tondy. We had a great time and the lunch/fresh fruits and rafting was amazing! The rafting is a fun and easy ride with beautiful sights of the jungle. The fruits were actually so good, that a orangutan came to steal our pineapple. We were definitely a bit scared, since we didn’t see her coming, but our guides made sure we were safe! During the trekking, the climbs and heat can be challenging. So make sure you wear good shoes and bring enough water. Also don’t forget mosquito spray! There are a lot of mosquitoes once you enter the national park. Book this trip and have an amazing jungle experience! 🦧🌴

    Excellent one day trip with Ucok into the forests at Bukit Lawang. Ucok had amazing insights into the wildlife and the jungle he has grown up in. I highly recommend trekking with him if you are looking to explore the jungles in Northern Sumatera. I will definitely be doing this trip again for more days.

    Pickup and drop off from hotel in Medan (bear in mind its a 3+ hours drive). Car was clean and comfortable. Guides were very friendly, spoke very good English. Felt safe at all times. Got to see a few Orangutans up close, as well as other animals. Worth the price. Highly recommended.

    Wir haben im „Thomas Retreat“ gewohnt und eine Tagestour durch den Dschungel unternommen. Ren, der Guide, ist sehr kompetent, weiss vieles über Flora und Fauna und weiss, wo die Orang Utans sind! Sehr empfehlenswert!

    Met een gids de eendaagse trekking gedaan. Wat een ervaring vooral als je de Oerang Oetangs weet te vinden. Hebben een Mannetje gezien en later een Moeder met een kleine bij zich. Moeder houdt alles goed in de gaten. Sommige mensen zien de Orang Oetangs niet de andere apen wel.. Gids past zich goed aan de mogelijkheden van de groep. Wij waren de oudste 74 jaar maar zeker niet de zwaksten. Groep bestond ook uit 40 jarigen die moesten er soms hard aan trekken. Een goede conditie is een vereiste. Ook op de dag trekking bij een meerdaagse terkking hebt je het zeker nodig.

    It was a gruelling trek for two senior citizens, one with a knee replacement.Ucok and Memet held my hand supported me all the way, otherwise I could not have made it.They explained about all the various trees in the Jungle.We got to see 3 Orang Utans and some Tomas Monkeys. The tube rafting at the end of it was exhilarating.I wish I had done it earlier when my knees were stronger!

    Excellent. The trek is very hard work but worth it in the end. Ucok was an excellent guide and looked after me. Everyone should take the rapid trip to finish. Overall 5 stars.
