Real Taxis to Medan are about 75 US$ one way but there are minibuses as well and we payed 25 $ for it, haggling is essential and also to fix the price in advance. Dont expect any comfort, no safety-belts nor anything else to get some hold in case of an accident. Drivers will speed even when it is just for a few meters and the side-door of these buses will always stay open.
For these 25 US$ we got a ride of 3 hours from Belawan (the next port, where our ship had docked) to Medan and back, including a citytour that was worth the trouble, BUT I guess the next time I would prefer a real taxi or to take the official bustour, offered by the ship.
Our Minibus had a driver who did not speak any english and an extra "tourguide" speaking a bit of english but giving no tourist-informations, just translating a bit and explaining to the driver where to go.
