For Yuni. Although alot of both these temples had limited access Yuni covered alot of the history behind it. Both temples were not very busy and plus it was raining hard. Overall a great day, however wish access to these historical sites would open up more if the entrance fees stay the same. As a call out the drive between temples is far (Over 1.5 hrs). We made some great conversations with Yuni and he gave us some recommendations as well as some background of Java and Yogikarta. Very much appreciated.

This was one of my favorite days I’ve spent in Indonesia. Timang beach was so beautiful, and I got to see a lot of sea turtles swimming in the water and the views are magical. Indra was a wonderful guide he did an amazing job navigating all the different locations and is so knowledgeable, I learned so much and had a such a fun day. Definitely book this tour if you’re visiting Yogyakarta.

We had a great time Our guide Anang Nasir wijaya was fabulous Picked us up from the airport at 7 am took us to the temples and dropped us off at our Airbnb The next day was a 3.30 am pick to get to the sunrise hike followed by the jam long caves That trip was easily the best trip we had ever had! Highly recommend Anang for his courteousness , energy and charming personality

Good mix of the three locations: Nice viewpoint in the morning followed by peaceful Pine Forest and adventurous Timang Beach. The road to the beach is pretty bumpy, otherwise it should be a place that many more tourists would like to go.

Had a brilliant time visiting many places around. Yogyakarta.
