Wow. What a trip. Fikar, our guide with Lite 'N' Easy Tour, gave us a three week trip of a lifetime. He knew the best local guides --- to find orangutans; we saw a huge male up close, and multiple females and babies. To discover a blooming giant rafflesia flower hidden deep in the jungle up a steep hillside. To find unique fumaroles and sulfur deposits hidden on the volcanoes. Those things alone would make for a memorable trip. But even more, he led us into the culture. We didn't just walk through Christian churches, Hindu temples, and Islamic Masjids - Fikar helped us experience their unique Sumatran versions. He took us to a wedding in a small village where, surprisingly, we were welcomed warmly, even getting a photo with the bride and groom. He knew the dates and locations of local events, such as mud cow racing (check YouTube). Plus truly local foods, exploring local markets in detail, wandering back roads, seeing secret local viewpoints, spending time with people from many clans, and so much more. Can't recommend them highly enough!

It was drizzling and it's low season, I was tired from the transit flights but Fikar (Zulfikar) is beyond professional, he knows his stuff. An all-in-one English communicating guide/driver/historian all in all and a generous, kind man. We talked about history, Dutch colonization, the origin of those Minangkabau roof tops that completely amazes me. From start to finish Fikar shows up ahead of time, picked me up on the hotel, asks me for those addicting coffe breaks (I tasted every coffee as we stopped and they were delicious) I just had 6 days but it feels magical, one-with-nature and maybe I just saw 15%, not the entire West Sumatra but the overwhelming happiness I FELT of what the true nature can be without (us) humans destroying it is beyond 100% so thank you for the memory and generous coffee breaks and friendship Mr. Zulfikar this trip goes to the top of my list YOU ROCK!

We went 2 weeks in Sumatra. Lite 'N' Easy Tour organized everything for us, we just had to tell them what we wanted to visit. Fikar picked us up from the airport and drove us everywhere; he planned everything perfectly fine so that we could do the visits in the best time of the day and all was well thought. Moreover, he was really kind and funny and took care of us very well (and he knows so much interesting things about Indonesia and Sumatra!!) ! It's very a good point to have someone from the island because he showed us some things that you would never find by yourself. The trip was nothing but interesting, funny and smooth.

Lite ‘n Easy managed to arrange a hike up to Mapari mountain for us in just a few hours. We contacted them in the evening and the next day at 6am they picked us up! We did a beautifull walk up the mountain with a very good guide who spoke excellent English. He brought enough water, snacks and a good lunch. Would book a tour with them again!

I have nothing but great things to say about Fikar and his company. During a family medical emergency at the beginning of our 8 day tour through Sumatra, he was extremely helpful and caring in his support. Throughout the trip, he never hesitated to support us in anything we needed and he was flexible in any changes to the itinerary.

A genuine company. Highly recommended for any travel in Sumatra.
