We had a great time with this agency, for our private tour! We chose the points of interest (Borobudur and Prambanan) and our guide Indra made us find it very well! he was very good at talking to us about Yogyakarta and the two temples we visited, then he made us try Luwak's coffee and a very good restaurant, for a total of more than 10 hours of tour. In the evening Indra accompanied us and made discover the beautiful center of Yogyakarta. We highly recommend this tour and especially the guide Indra !! Matteo & Francesca

Praja was a great guide! I told him i would like to see a few places then i had no idea where to go after. On the spot he came up with an amazing itinerary! Sultan’s palace, water temple, ancient volcano hike, kopi luwak (the infamous coffee), and finally some local Javanese food. Very knowledgeable about everything and answered any questions I had. I would recommend to request Praja to anyone looking to do a few things off the beaten path.

Our driver (Praja) is extremely accomodating and knowledgable as well. He also gives local tips about food and other places of attraction. Highly recommended.

great guide, good english, we were allowed to choose everything when and where & he was super knowledgeable

Punctual, helpful and professional Tour well thought out for the activities carried out
