Full description

After being picked up from your hotel and head to Setumbu Hill to witness the breathtaking Borobudur sunrise. When the air is fresh and as the mist begins to lift, the sun will surround the volcanoes and terraced fields. After sunrise, you have the option to explore the UNESCO-listed Borobudur Temple, the single largest Buddhist structure on earth. Be the first of the day to enter the gates as they open. This is one of the world's greatest ancient monuments. Continue your tour on board a jeep to the Merapi volcano, one of the most popular volcanoes in the country. Snap your own momentous memories over the picturesque spots of the volcano. Finish the tour with a visit to one of the most beautiful Hindu temples, Prambanan. Built-in the tenth century, this is the largest temple compound dedicated to Shiva in Indonesia. See the three temples decorated with reliefs illustrating the epic of the Ramayana, dedicated to the three great Hindu divinities (Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma) and the animals who serve them. Once your tour is finished, sit back and relax while your driver escorts you back to your accommodation.

All the three places are worth visiting but I would suggest to make Borobudur and Merapi to go in one day, Pramanan can do in a separate day bundle with another activity. It is too tiring to do all the three locations within a day especially so the trip starting at 4am.

The tour itself was amazing! Our driver Anang was great, very attentive, very punctual and very sweet. The experience itself it is absolutely worth it but it should be explained better. As the tour package was not exactly as described we ended up frustrated from the bad communication beforehand. It was nowhere mentioned that the tour is shared and considering the price we were quite surprised. The pick up time was not as announced at 4:00, it was even earlier at 03:30, which we did not expect either. But the views in Setumbu Hill with the sunrise were the best! The tour guide is more a driver and even though he gave us some valuable knowledge regarding tradition and culture, we still needed a guide in the different attractions. However Anang was very sweet and arranged for us a complimentary guide at the Borobudur temple. The Jeep ride itself is a very small part and it is only to go around the 3 points of interest in Merapi. The rest of the ride is with a different car.

Our guide Arif picked us up at the hotel on time in the morning. During the drive we had a good chat, a very nice guy. During the trips to the individual sights, we made several unscheduled stops. We are a backyard in a cafe with bamboo patio and beautiful garden. A real insider tip! In addition, our guide Arif got us snakefruits out of his own pocket, which we have never seen or eaten before. We were accompanied everywhere to the entrance and you have all the time in the world. Nice tour, thanks to Arif!
