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!
