What an excellent day!Widi my guide was an absolute gem,he picked me up early in the morning as we discussed.I was lucky enough to be the only person to guide so have me a huge amount of information about the places I was planning to visit. Borobudur was amazing although I wasn’t be able to climb up atop due to covid restrictions. Nevertheless,the whole trip was amazing and all I can say if you are planning to do any of these packages,tray and request Widi!
