What people are saying about Mount Semeru

This tour... just wow! Our driver Boby and guide Fahmi were absolute legends. Great fun to hang out with for a couple of days. Now the hikes... Bromo is moderate level - not overly difficult, just a couple of steep sections. It's great that Bromo is split into two hikes with breakfast in between. Ijen is hard work - but well worth it. The day I climbed was a bit rainy, but it was still a very enjoyable experience. The blue flames were stunning! Both Boby and Fahmi made this trip extra-awesome with their easy going and fun attitudes. 5 stars for both these gents. The only criticism I have is when I chatted get your guide and asked about the accommodation arrangements and was told we would get our own rooms. This didn't occur and I had to share a room with my mate both nights. This is not a reflection of the activity or the amazing gents that facilitated it though. Get ready for some long days of driving - it's the only downside of the activity but well worth it.

Excellent activity over 3 days with superb landscapes! Don't be afraid, this is an activity that is easily accessible physically. The guide on site is extraordinary, helpful, available, friendly and above all very funny. This is the bonus of this stay. Go for it!

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.

Great experience! The guides were extremely accommodating. It's great that we were able to change the route to leave from Surabaya instead of going back to Bali! I'd highly recommend this operator :D

Recommended. Both the guide and the driver were very good at organizing the tour. We had a great time.
