Our Guide Cokey and our driver for the day Brother Bud have made sure we had an excellent day. In Bandung city center our guides arrived perfectly on time and brought us to the White Volcano. Cokey is a real entertainer and told us many stories about the area, the volcano and the lake. But you can also ask any question you will have. He has an answer on everything. After the volcano we stopped at the Deer Station, the Lake, and the tea planatation. Then a real nice lunch at an exvellent restaurant. We learned from cokey how to eat rice in the real indonesian way. In all an excellent day. Thank you Cokey and Bud!

Our driver Steven tailored the tour to our liking (destination south of Bandung). We had enough time for our desired sightseeing and also enough breaks for eating and drinking. We particularly liked the fact that our driver really took the entire 10 hours for us and even did a small city tour through the center of Bandung at the great end. Thanks again Steven for the nice day.

Cokey was a great guide, had a lot to tell and a good sense of humor, very open person with whom it is easy to bond. The crater lake was truly an experience to remember as was the small crater with the steam baths. Deer resarvation was also nice but a bit of a tourist trap. In addition, the tea fields were beautiful

We spent an extraordinary day with our great driver Chawqui who gave very good advice for the organization of the day. What a good surprise for us who had made the reservation very late the night before!

Our driver was great and we had a great day with him! Many thanks.
