"Wild orangutan tours"

This is a much overdue review. We travelled as a family with 2kids then aged 8 and 11 in 2016. I m writing this now as I m planning another holiday and realise how much I rely on tripadvisor reviews...

"Three days, two nights - absolutely fantastic"

Just to add a few lines to reinforce what's already been said by other reviewers. I booked a three day two night tour with Wild Orangutan Tours and if I had the time and money I'd do it all again...
