    hi..just like to much the taxi rate can i get from mr.husaini from polonia to berastagi only? Planning to visit berastagi-toba-medan may 2011.Thanks!

  2. nooneknow2009 01-10-10 14:59


    Actually you can either send him an email or sms him directly. He is very kind to reply your mail with detail information as you like.

    Last time we got request him to quote us some package like the one below for 1 million Rp (RM 360).

    Parapat to Berastagi
    Berastagi to Medan

    For your case i guess will charge you around RM 150 just from Airport to Berastagi. To confirm the price i will suggest you to email him because the price may change.

  3. inascully 01-10-10 19:44

    hi again..on d way from parapat to berastagi,can he stop by in case we’d like to visit interesting places along d way?thanks!

  4. nooneknow2009 02-10-10 09:58

    Yes, you can but you need to inform the driver because there are two directions to reach Berastagi.

    You just need to inform the driver where is the place you would like to go or ask for suggestion(because every time the driver is different, so when you meet the driver only inform him will do) then he will arrange for it but the price may be different (extra charge).

    You can plan to go Sipiso-piso waterfall, that is a very nice place to take photo.

    Hi, just read ur info. Is vy useful for me.
    I plan to have a trip at Lake Toba and Berastagi, but is hard to find a budget hotel. Can i get the email or contact no for Wisma Sibayak Guest House? I really need ur help, thanks….^^

  12. nooneknow2009 28-07-11 09:45

    Really sorry…I couldn’t find the contact no.

    I think it shouldn’t be any problem if walk-in because we also do that way without any plan for the schedule change. If really unlucky there is no available room, perhaps you can get help from the driver like what we did last time.

  13. YenYen 30-07-11 19:21

    ok….thanks ya…..^^u are so kind…^^

  14. Jarett 23-11-11 10:52

    I will have a 6 day trip to Medan, Berastagi dan Toba. But I got problem with the transport, may I ask how the driver? is that he will come and pick-up on the date we want or all along the trip? I plan to go from airport to Toba dan 2 night there before going to Besrastagi and 1 night there and 2 nights in Medan.Thanks in advance.

  15. nooneknow2009 23-11-11 12:59

    No worries!

    Once you have confirmed the trip with Husaini , on the date u arrive he and the driver will wait u at the Airport. After that the driver will fetch u to the destination then the driver will leave. Every trip may be different driver and that depend on the company arrangement.

    Basically, u just need to let Husaini know the date and time for the trip and he will arrange the driver to pick u up and inform u where to wait for the driver.

    I may suggest u to purchase a local simcard for contact between u and Husaini for the transport arrangement.

    Hi, i will be travelling to Medan with my bf this coming March. I wonder if i get taxi service like yours, how do we travel in the town/ village itself? We cant cycle or ride a motorbike. Are all walking distance or we need to call a tut-tut or taxi along our visit? Thanks

  17. nooneknow2009 22-02-12 12:06

    I don’t know which town you are referring to? Berastagi or Toba?

    Berestagi – Yes, you can walk around.
    Toba – No, but you can hire someone to carry you to the destination. The price may be expensive as you need to pay for the rider.
