I had an excellent tour! Everything was very well organized by the tour company and the very reliable and knowledgeable driver and guide. All the sites we visited were fabulous, starting from the Buddhist and Hindu temples around Yogjakarta to the impressive volcanoes in East Java. Yogjakarta has a lot to offer and I feel I could have spent a day or two more there. Consider arriving a few days before starting the tour to explore the city. The way from Yogjakarta to the volcanoes is quite long, but it gives you a chance to sit back in the car, observe local life and learn about the country and its culture from the local guide.
The guide and driver were very flexible and accommodating. The driver often stopped en route for me to take photos of the surroundings. They both explained quite a bit about local customs and lore en route. The guide was very knowledgeable about the places we visited (Keraton, Taman Siri, Prambanan and Ratu Boko) and adapted to my pace, and also found a restaurant near Prambanan (Kali Opak) with good food. It was the guide who suggested waiting for the sunset at Ratu Boko when we were finished at Ratu Boko almost an hour early, even though it was still a long drive back as my hotel was close to Borobudur.
Thabk tou Widi for a wonderful day. I highly recommend this option to all travelers who want to see Borobodur and Prambanan in one day. Widi was not only an experienced driver but also very knowledgeable about all the sights.
My driver and tour guide was exceptionally helpful. I left my charger in his car and he was kind enough to drive back return it to me.
Teddy was very accommodating and friendly. Will definitely recommend to my friends who plans to visit Jogja...
