What people are saying about East Java

Tour Amazing worthwhile 4 day tour Pros: All activities are a must in Java - all guides were knowledgeable, good English, considerate which was great & reassuring as I was a solo female traveller. Bromo was an absolute highlight - breath taking Ijen was incredible - face masks provided & an absolute must! Sunrise at Borobudur was disappointing but only due to the weather Accommodation in Yogyakarta was nice. Cons: There is a lot of driving between locations which is tiring but the only way to see all of these locations in the timeframe. Very early starts (2am) which is fine if you’re a morning person Accommodation at Bromo - below average best location for view of Bromo & the early start. Driver: My driver for the whole trip was called Anang. He was polite, accommodating & considerate noting that I was happy to try local food he stopped along the routes to try new foods. He also helped arrange local taxis when I returned to Bali. Good English - highly recommend!

The tour was very well organised. Our driver picked Sopleg picked us up well on time. The drive to the starting point including the ferry crossing was long but passed quickly. Sopleg gave us a lot detail about the area and was able to answer all questions we had about Balinese culture. At the starting point we were met by Anton our guide for the hike. The hike up was about 2 hours on a easy path with a few steep sections. Anton then led us into the crater, which is more challenging to climb. He provided a lot background information about Ijen and the sulphur mining. We had plenty of time to see the blue flames and the acidic lake. After the easier descend in daylight we had breakfast at a relaxed restaurant. Overall the trip was very exhausting due to the lack of sleep, but our guides and drivers tried to make it as pleasant as they could. If I had more time I would potentially do the longer trip with Bromo from the same provider.

This was one of the highlights of my first visit to Indonesia. This hike is very challenging. Take your time. The blue fire, sulfur, and midnight sky are amazing to to see this lifetime. Our drivers were very accomdating to our time concerns since we had to be back earlier. Our hiking leader assisted much of the hike down the crater. The views at the mountain tops are amazing. WEAR PROPER HIKING SHOES PLEASE.

impeccable organization, the pick-up took place directly at the hotel in yogya and everything went smoothly until the arrival at the port of ketapang. The volcanoes offer breathtaking landscapes, just a little too touristy. the experience was really made perfect thanks to our driver, Bagus, professional and friendly, he made us live local experiences (we stopped in a Durian Farm to taste the strange fruit).

Fami and Made Cheng were great guides! We were able to see the blue fire, sulfur mines, and watch the sun rise over the blue lake and mountainous background. We ended with a local Indonesian breakfast. Would recommend this to anyone active who is looking for a unique adventure during their time in Indonesia
