We had a wonderful trip and our guide from Java Bali Trips, Mr. Bambang was well versed with the tour locations. He was also very accommodating and professional. Will definitely vouch for him if we do plan a return there.
Also special mention to the local guide in Borubudur, Mr. Latif who impressed us with his deep knowledge on the history of this ancient site.
The only downside was one our encounter with one of the street peddlers who sold us the mini replica of the stupa purportedly made from lava rock. He sold the item to us for Rp250,000, however later we found out that the item cost Rp100,000 or less. Mr, Bambang was also very concerned about this advise us to write in this review as well so that he could report to the relevant authorities.

But overall it was professional arrangement which made our trip worthwhile. A big thank you to Viator and Java Bali Trips.
