Of course. No matter what your wishes and requirements for your Sumatra tours are, let us know and we will organize it for you.
We strongly advise not to do so. The traffic is very chaotic and the roads are bad. It is very convenient on Sumatra to hire a private driver for certain routes or a number of days. Especially if you are travelling as a couple or in a group, the cost per person is very reasonable. We are happy to organize a private driver on Sumatra for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
We recommend that you book at least one month in advance so that we can prepare everything. However, we do our best to accept enquiries at short notice. Simply contact us.
A deposit of 30% of the total price is required to confirm the booking. We need this deposit as we have to pay it in advance in order to secure the booking. The deposit must be paid in Euro via PayPal or bank transfer. You will receive an invoice.
Booking confirmation and outstanding payment
Once the deposit has been received, we will send you a booking confirmation and the updated itinerary. Here you will also find the balance to be paid in cash in Indonesian Rupiah upon arrival in Bukit Lawang. Alternatively, you can pay the balance by PayPal or bank transfer up to 1 week prior to departure.
We accept payments by Paypal and bank transfer.
Here's a breakdown of the costs for 2 people for a 2 day trek (90 Euro/person):
Permit: 20 Euros
HPI fee: 4 Euros
Food: 16 Euros
Guide: 50 Euros
Assistant guide: 20 Euros
Cook/camp/rafting: 70 Euros
Here you see that there are many people involved and everybody gets a decent salary for Indonesian conditions. When you negotiate the price, you are not only agreeing to a bad payment, but you also reduce the quality and even safety of your experience. Everybody looses. So if a guide offers you a big discount, be cautious.
