Superb trip. Highly enthusiastic team gave a lasting memory that we will cherish forever
Confirmation for the tour came down to the last day which was stressful. Was meant to include beach picnic but didnt. Asked tour guide and he had no idea what I was talking about. Viator offered a small refund after several weeks. Unlikely to use them again.
Very good tour! Nice and helpful guide and nice spots to visit
A must-see for anyone visiting Java. Outstanding value-for-money considering the extent of the trip, as it starts real early to beat the crowds. My driver, Mega, was very kind and considerate given it took up his whole day, and was willing to join me for dinner and take me to the airport afterwards!
Early rising was worth it. Great guide, fantastic tour, saw everything, did everything and more. Sun may not have appeared at the temple due to cloud but still worth going. Temples were great and if you like Kopi Luwak, tell the guide. There's a Kopi Luwak shop with civets in the backyard!! Best coffee I have ever tasted!!! And the Mt Merapi volcano and museum were a highlight. Love volcanos!!! Thank you heaps :
Great tour, really good seeing some of the lesser known temples. This is a LONG day however with many hours travelling in the car. We felt it was worth it. But just be aware of that.
Tour guide was very friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. Spoke very good English.
The private tour started early in the morning in a very clean air conditioned car. We were picked up from our hotel in Yogyakarta and taken directly to Borobudur temple with plentiful time to get to the top of the temple and see sunrise. Our guide gave us time to enjoy the sunrise, then walked us around the temple pointing out the most interesting and pertinent carvings. Although witnessing a spectacular sunrise is weather condition dependent, it is well worth paying more to enter Borobudur early in the morning before the big crowds arrive and queues build to get in. Ensure good foot wear and prepare to climb lots of steep steps. There was some spare time to enjoy the complimentary coffee and snack that came with the entrance fee to the temple.
We were then driven to a local authentic market. Top tips were given by our tour guide and explanations to features of the market. We then drove to two other Buddhist temples via a coffee roasting enterprise. It was insightful learning about the Luwak coffee and seeing the animals involved in the coffee making process. There was no pressure to buy the coffee or try it, although it is very much worth a cup to try! remember - it is the most expensive coffee in the world so expect prices to reflect that.
The two Buddhist temples were much quieter and smaller compared to Borobudur, but very calm and beautiful. One entrance fee covers both temples.
The afternoon involved driving approximately 60 minutes to the base camp of Merapi volcano. A jeep ride around the volcano and points of interest from eruption destruction is approximately 90 minutes, and very insightful. The cost of this is not included. There are minimal facilities and viewing points otherwise on Merapi, so a jeep ride is the only interesting thing to do.
We were then given the option to visit Prambanan temple Hindu for an additional cost of 150,000Rdp. However, we opted out as we were tired! We were driven directly back to our hotel.
All these activities and sights involve additional fees but well worth it for an action packed memorable day. Remember your camera and be prepared for locals to try and sell you their wares pestering tourists!
All in all, very good value for money. Thank you Bambang!
Highly highly recommended!! they event prepared cool tower and cold bottled water throughout the trip. The guide was knowledgable and tried to make the experience quite personal.
Only note is that this is private tour, meaning that if they are setting up a private tour for your booking.
Our guide was very friendly and funny...Did the tour as we asked. The car was in perfect condition and very comfortable. They were 2 full days with excellent attention..I recommend 100
