What people are saying about 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

I had an amazing morning with Yuni and Boim. Yuni is so funny and fun to hang out with, and I learned a lot about Merapi and Yogyakarta. Boim was a great guide around the volcano, I learned a lot about the 2010 eruption, and riding in the jeep was so much fun. Perfect way to start 2023

We had a great time. Yuni (driver from Jogja) and Nur (jeep driver) explained us a lot about Mount Merapi, culture, tradition and spiritual connection between people and mountain. It was our pleasure to meet them. We highly recommend booking this tour :)

Though it was more expensive than I had thought, it was a good choice to go around Yogyakarta including Borobudur and Prambanan! An airport pick-up was really appreciated and the driver was good.

The experience was indeed very good and smooth. Anang is a great guide. Very enthusiastic and helpful.
