I had an excellent tour! Everything was very well organized by the tour company and the very reliable and knowledgeable driver and guide. All the sites we visited were fabulous, starting from the Buddhist and Hindu temples around Yogjakarta to the impressive volcanoes in East Java. Yogjakarta has a lot to offer and I feel I could have spent a day or two more there. Consider arriving a few days before starting the tour to explore the city. The way from Yogjakarta to the volcanoes is quite long, but it gives you a chance to sit back in the car, observe local life and learn about the country and its culture from the local guide.
Our driver Fariz was really nice. On our way to the Borobodur he told us about the Indonesian culture and different kinds of fruit. He even stopped to let us taste some fruit and showed us the fruit trees. The communication was very clear and Fariz always told us where he was and if we needed something. At the Kalibri parc we forgot our money downstairs in the car and he even lend us some money. On the way back to our hostel, Fariz even gave us some advice for our next destinations in Indonesia. Thank you Fariz for this amazing day and experience. We recommend Fariz to everyone!
The tour was great! It was more than we expected. Our guide Widi told us a lot about the country and the people and also showed us. Through him we were able to sip tea with the locals and see places we would not otherwise have come. He was extremely committed and was able to provide us with everything in excellent English. Many thanks dear Widi! The tour has a lot to offer, so be prepared for the cold temperatures at Bromo! We would recommend the tour at any time!
We visited Borobodur temple and the Kalibiru National Park with our driver Yuni. But Yuni was more than our driver. It was fun with him on the way to the sights and after some time he seemed like a friend. On the way back we stopped several times for fruits and dinner at a local restaurant, the food there was awesome. He showed us even more of the culture than we expected. We really recommend to ask for Yuni as your driver.
Beautiful and serene tour which recharges your body, mind and soul. Our driver Taufan is a safe and smooth driver. He is friendly and honest. He shows us the local way of life and tell us what to watch out for. He is sensitive to our needs and considerate. We feel safe with him throughout the trip.
