What people are saying about Special Region of Yogyakarta

It was an excellent one-day trip in Yogjakarta. My guide Indra san, he was the best guide/driver I've ever had. He was so caring, flexible, and intelligent. As I was a solo traveler, I really enjoyed the conversation with him while driving. I learned many things about Indonesia and Jogyakarta from him. His suggestion for tour schedule was perfect, and I could enjoy Borobudur, Volcano, and Pranbanan in one day. Definitely recommended.

Our driver Basyir was very good and we definitely enjoyed our stay at jogja. He was accommodating to our tight schedule, and he made sure to get us to the major spots in fast fashion and maximise our time there. We really enjoyed his recommendation to try out kopi luwak and we would recommend anyone to try it as well. Overall, a very good experience and made our short stay enjoyable.
