Great experience with our driver Made Ceng who picked us up from Bali and our amazing guide Fahmie!! The traffic from Bali to Ijen was heavy so we reached the base only around 3.30am. As the sun was almost out when we reached the top & the hike down to the blue flames was quite tough, we gave it a miss (sadly). The hike up was a little tough as it was steep but it was doable esp with our amazing guide Fahmie who also took great photos and videos! Thank you to Fahmie and Made Ceng for the amazing experience! (Would recommend to start the trip earlier esp if the traffic is going to be heavy)

Agus was the best guide ever, he has such a great energy that made us smile and laugh the entire trip, he gave us so many memories capturing photos and constant knowledge of the hike and attention to our needs. His positive attitude shown throughout and was even the highlight of the trip! He made the trip so wonderful and an unforgettable experience we will keep forever, ijen is an awe inspiring hike/location which gave us everything and more, I could not wish for a greater trip or guide, 10 stars

Agust and Fafa were absolutely amazing guides on our trip to Ijen! They were super funny and really accommodating to our needs. You know that you have a good guide when they help other people. I highly recommend this trip. Pick up and drop off was super smooth and we got to see the blue flames and sunrise. Thank you for such an amazing trip!

Great experience! The guides were extremely accommodating. It's great that we were able to change the route to leave from Surabaya instead of going back to Bali! I'd highly recommend this operator :D

Seeing sunrise from the top of Ijen and its crater is spectacular. The work that the miners do there is very hard. highly recommended experience
