My wife and I were captivated by the breathtaking views of Mount Bromo, the mesmerizing sunrise over the mountain, and the serene beauty of Madakaripura Waterfall. Each destination left us in awe, offering unique and unforgettable sights. Our trip was made all the more special by our outstanding tour guide, Faruk. From the moment we met him, Faruk was welcoming, kind, and exceptionally knowledgeable. He ensured our safety and comfort as he drove, allowing us to relax and fully enjoy the journey. Faruk's deep understanding of the attractions we visited significantly enhanced our experience, providing us with fascinating details and stories that brought the landscapes and history of Surabaya surroundings to life. Faruk's helpfulness and dedication were evident in every aspect of our trip. He assisted us with everything we needed and made sure our adventure was smooth and enjoyable. His enthusiasm and passion for the region were truly inspiring, making our journey even more memorable.

This was a fantastic tour by guide Rizky from Cheap Bromo. First they accommodated a change in date made necessary due to a canceled flight, with no hassle. We were picked up promptly at our hotel. Rizky knew exactly the right times and spots to go to see Mount Bromo in all of its glory. He had special knowledge of night sky photography and captured many jaw-dropping shots. Everything was very well planned and maximized the time we had. It was an unforgettable experience. Rizky and the driver also made great time delivering us to the airport so we could make our flight. Highly recommended all around!

The tour was nice overall. It is not the most comfortable trip but if you want to see a unique sunrise it is definitely recommended. Our tour guide Pram was very friendly and helpful in finding the best spot to view the beautiful spectacle. She took very good care of us and provided us with everything we needed. Highly recommended.

The guide was the best we’ve ever had on any tour. Thank you very much. Tom Dan and Charlie

Fani took great care of us and fulfilled our every wish.
