We had a wonderful trip with Atok. The guided tour to Borobudur was great. Then atok brought us to the nearest village around Borobudur temple. We took horsecart riding, it was fun. We meet with the locals and interact with them, what an amazing experience. We definitely would recommend this tour to everyone!

Clever combination. Excellent guide driver Dedi. He seamlessly picked us up from our hotel, and gave us so much a lot of interesting stories. Borobudur temple is worth to visit. Also the bike tour is fun, we love it! Worth every penny! Thank you Dedi for your hardwork.
