We initially booked the tour to the Dieng Plateau without great expectations. However, our guide Youss made sure that we had a truly unique experience. Great conversations, very friendly and a good, safe driver. Our highlight was the beautiful sunrise and the thick cloud cover on the Sikunir! Definitely recommend it! Thank you Youss for this great day! :)

We really enjoyed our trip to Dieng Plateau. It was a bit busy at some of the sights, especially the Arjuna Temple. But the sunrise at Sunikir Hill was beautiful. Our driver Bram was one of the best drivers we've had during our holiday! He was very kind and spoke English well.

Our driver Dwi Purnomo was very kind. He told us everything about indonesia and in particular about Dieng. He also suggested us places to visit e gave us some advices. Very recommended. Loved him and the trip.

Magnificent landscapes, very good timing of the guide to make the most of it!

Very beautiful surroundings and definitely worth it.
