    Lots of hours in the car but absolutely worth it. Everything is well organized, you don't need to worry about anything. I even got a warm jacket and gloves as I haven't brought some to my summer holidays. Our guide Eppy was always caring for us and made jokes to make the time fly by in the car. He also brought as to the best viewpoint on the King Kong Hill we could have asked for. All in all, I don't want to miss out on this special experience and adventure.

    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.

    This tour... just wow! Our driver Boby and guide Fahmi were absolute legends. Great fun to hang out with for a couple of days. Now the hikes... Bromo is moderate level - not overly difficult, just a couple of steep sections. It's great that Bromo is split into two hikes with breakfast in between. Ijen is hard work - but well worth it. The day I climbed was a bit rainy, but it was still a very enjoyable experience. The blue flames were stunning! Both Boby and Fahmi made this trip extra-awesome with their easy going and fun attitudes. 5 stars for both these gents. The only criticism I have is when I chatted get your guide and asked about the accommodation arrangements and was told we would get our own rooms. This didn't occur and I had to share a room with my mate both nights. This is not a reflection of the activity or the amazing gents that facilitated it though. Get ready for some long days of driving - it's the only downside of the activity but well worth it.

We had a wonderful time. Our guides Fami and Argi were amazing and extremely friendly. They went above and beyond to look after us. There is a lot of long days driving and very early starts which we knew before we booked this tour so this was not a problem for us. The li g days and early starts are worth it Mt Bromo and Ijen crater were out of this world a must for any one who likes adventure, the walking is not hard to the crater, but take good hiking shoes, we did and was easy I took my trekking poles awesome idea. Hotels and food were great. Our overall experience was incredibly awesome and lots of fun. I highly recommend this tour and the company get your guide Thank you so much Fami and Argi

The tour was great! It was more than we expected. Our guide Widi told us a lot about the country and the people and also showed us. Through him we were able to sip tea with the locals and see places we would not otherwise have come. He was extremely committed and was able to provide us with everything in excellent English. Many thanks dear Widi! The tour has a lot to offer, so be prepared for the cold temperatures at Bromo! We would recommend the tour at any time!
