What people are saying about East Java

Our experience was amazing! Both of our tour guides were so friendly and kind! Cheng was an amazing driver and very helpful! Anton was so kind and knowledgeable about the volcanoes and went above and beyond with our tour! He was able to take us to unique areas because he grew up and was a miner in the town we toured! It made the tour very special and unique. 10/10 would recommend anyone to do. One of the coolest experiences I’ve ever done!

We had a great trip. The activities were great fun and we really saw and experienced a lot. Our driver (Made Ceng) and our guide (Agus) were really great! They took great care of us and were always in a great mood! We can only say positive things about the two. The only criticism was the food in the two restaurants in the hotels. Expensive for Indonesia and very bad quality. Thank you and we are happy to recommend this tour.

The trip went really well, we saw incredible landscapes! The team is punctual and super well organized, we enjoyed every moment. Our driver Komang Mexico was really great, we did 3 super nice days on the road with him, in safety and in a good mood! An absolutely must-do trip! Thanks a lot

We highly reccomend this experience. Our driver, Fafa, was very friendly, drove safely, and took great care of us. Our guides, August and Spiki, were great. We certainly reccomend having guides and a driver for this experience, it is not something to do alone.

The tour was very well arranged and both Bromo and Ijen are extremely beautifull to visit. Furthermore, our driver Fafa and tour guide Fami were both very nice and did everything to make it a perfect trip. So would definately recommend going on this trip!
