What people are saying about Yogyakarta

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.

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!

Thabk tou Widi for a wonderful day. I highly recommend this option to all travelers who want to see Borobodur and Prambanan in one day. Widi was not only an experienced driver but also very knowledgeable about all the sights.

Great driver / guide who spoke excellent English and knew a lot. The local guide in Borobudur was also good and very involved.

Speaking excellent English and very kind driver Mr.Uni, thanjs to him
