I took the sunset tour of Prambanan (same day as I did sunrise at Borobudur). My guide Widi picked me up from my hotel mid-afternoon and we took the relatively short journey to the temple. Widi was really helpful, giving plenty of background on the history of the temple and the story its carvings told, plus plenty of background on Java and Indonesia. Prambanan itself is nothing short of stunning, and the light at sunset was beautiful. For me, here and Borobudur are on a par with any man-made sight I’ve seen - huge, awe-inspiring and beautiful. I stayed on for the Ramayana ballet afterwards, so Widi drove me to a local restaurant inbetween the two tours, where I got some great fish. Highly recommended tour and Widi is a highly recommended guide.

Widi is the best guide I've ever had, anywhere. His English is great, and his manner open and friendly. I also walk with a cane when covering long distances. Indonesia is not a very handicapped friendly place, but Widi helped me get around and enjoy the sites to the best of my ability. Truly a 5 out of 5 star guide!

Mr Yuni made this trip enjoyable. Highly recommended driver

He loves what he does and just an all around good driver. Just tell him if u dont want to talk and he will leave you alone without feeling guilt on your part. He asks you. The tour itself is amazing he took a photo of me in the front with the sign. And I asked if we can stop by to buy water and he did.
