Wonderful tour - reliable, enjoyable and knowledgable

As a veteran traveler who spend 8 months on the road a year, I tend to be critical on tours. Yet I have to at this tour meets my expectations- Ivan, the tour guide, definitely earns his credit. First of all, Ivan speaks excellent English, thus being able to give me good info. He knows where to go, especially in the mountain region in Central Java. He is a safe driver which, forgive me saying this, makes him a minority in a country with “exotic traffic conditions”. Besides, he also shared with me places where I should buy or where I should NOT buy. This is what a tour guide’s value comes from - and I think that’s why I have high regards on this Ivan and this tour as a whole. As a tourist, I am looking for good local knowledge and hassle-free vacation. This one, as I say, I would have no reservations giving an excellent comment. Thanks a lot!

My 3rd thour in 3 days, today also with the lovely guide Ivan! First we went to Solo City to visit the sultans palace there and a batik museum. Didn‘t know that it takes so much time to finish ONE piece of batik if its handmade and costs this amount of money! Then we went to Cetho and Sukuh, 2 hindu temples. The ride over there is a bit extreme, but you have a great view of the landscape there! My guide Ivan follows me also into this temples and explain everything. After that we had lunch at a nice restaurant. If your guide is Ivan, please invite him to something sweet, esp chocolate . Ivan is such a great guide! Highly recommend this tour as well!

Excellent tour certainly recommended on the first day of stay in the city as it will provide you with many indications about the City.

Fantastic experience. I recommend it to anyone who loves special historical sites.

Good schedule and services.

My tour guide is caring and knowledgeable. Enjoy a lot!
