Success for a first-time hiker
Genevieve_N, Apr 2023
It was a superb experience. My guide was Bangun and the driver was Tico. Tico was on time to pick me up at my hotel in Medan, then we made our 2 hour drive to Berastagi to meet our guide and begin the activities. Bangun was very helpful throughout the hike and friendly too. He was insightful and could answer any questions we asked. He also told us some history of Indonesia. The hike itself is doable for first timers (I was a first time hiker) despite it being challenging initially. Our driver Tico was friendly too and punctual. The activities were well-timed and interesting. Overall a pleasant experience and commendable guide/driver.
A lot of experience

It’s wonderful tour. I had a lot of new experiences. Some dogs especially one puppy followed our hike. That was really cute. Unfortunately, was not able to see sunrise due to foggy, but it was stunning view, and had really good time at hot springs and beautiful fruit market. I really appreciate about my guides. They picked me up at 2am despite they worked for previous customers until 10 pm. Next time, I would definitely stay at Berastagi. That would be convenient for this tour. Anyway, thanks so much!
Once in a lifetime experience- so exciting!

I have hiked all over the world. This is one of my most memorable hiking experiences. Nothing can prepare you for the sound of the hot gases escaping through the vents. It is very loud and incredible. The hike up was slippery and rocky, but it was 100% worth it. Being inside the caldera and seeing the boiling water and yellow sulfur was just crazy. If that wasn’t enough, the day was filled with other sightseeing activities. Seeing the waterfall and Lake Toba was amazing. We also stopped at a long house and saw some monkeys in another spot. I asked if the guide would show me his house and we stopped there and had some soup. That was very special to me that I was able to see how Indonesian people live. The guide was very knowledgeable and told me a lot about Indonesia during the journey. All told it was a 13 hour day from my hotel. Highly recommended that you book this excursion !!!! I tried to upload photos twice but kept getting an error
Adventure Hike with Awesome Guide
David_L, Feb 2020
My guide, Hendra, called me a day in advance to make sure we were all set...this was a wonderful foreshadowing of a most excellent day hiking adventure. We met at my Medan hotel in the morning and made the 2-hour drive to the Berstagi village for some sighseeing and shopping for mango, banana and snake fruit to enjoy at the close of our hike. The volcano hike itself was great with various landscapes and terrific views. I wore hiking shoes and that was a good thing. Afterwards, we went for beers at the bottom of the mountain and then headed back to Berstagi for famous Sumatra coffees and Nasi Goreng. After that, it was off to Lake Tago and the famous waterfalls. On our way back to town, we stopped to see some of the famous native Karo artchitectures...not on our tour but as we expressed interest, Hendra was sure to stop for us. Hendra is an adventurist and has great knowledge of the area. What's more, he has a terrific personality and made the tour so enjoyable.
