What people are saying about Yogyakarta

This was my third tour of the day, as I’d done the Borobudur Sunrise tour in the morning and had already been to Prambanan itself immediately prior to the Ramayana show. Widi, my guide for all 3, was really great - he had loads of useful information about Java, about the temples and about Ramayana, so everything I did and saw always bad genuine context around it. The ballet itself was entertaining and interesting - there was a screen showing a summary of what was happening in the story as well - it was a real spectacle and really good value.

Guide was prompt and friendly. The Ballet was a good rendition of the story of Ram and Sri Lanka. I thought it might get boring after a while, but it actually was pretty good teh whole way through. The projection of the story on the wall was a good addition.

Trekking in real bush with inches of a volcano awesome

Yoga was a great guide, fairly easy trail but lots of thick bush wear long clothes (arms/legs). Got a good glimpse of the very active volcano. We enjoyed the peace and exercise as a whole.

An experience, really fantastic.

It is a pity that the gate opens at 6 am, so that I had missed the sunrise. Got up early for nothing.

The driver was punctual and looked after us very well for the evening.
