This activity was excellent!! Ivan was my driver, and he is such a nice person who was very knowledgeable about the region and was just great to talk with. He was able to help set me up with tour guides at Borobudur and Prambanan as well as a driver who spoke English for the Jeep excursion. After we finished at Prambanan, he offered to take me to Kota Gede, the area where silver is made, since it was on the way back to my hotel. He was very accommodating and I would highly recommend anyone request him if you are doing this activity. The only issue I had was that although I was told I would receive an email or call the day before the activity, I received neither. Thankfully Ivan was there on time, but I would have appreciated receiving some type of confirmation from the company as had been stated on the initial booking email I received.

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.

Yogyakarta: Prambanan Temple Sunset Tour Reviewed by

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.

The driver was on time and friendly And driving safely!! He hooked us up with a guide to the first temple that was funny and knowledgeable made the whole experience even better, showed us where to take really nice pictures. We will never forget it. The jeep trip was beautiful and everybody were so nice and by the time we got to the second temple we were tired so our driver suggested that we take a bike to look around and that was a great suggestion we did that and we had so much fun. Great tour I would highly recommend it

Beautiful area about a scenic 2 hours drive from Yogyakarta. Locals are friendly and have installed paths and viewing platforms for visitors from the entry funds. Consider giving an extra donation for them to continue the great work. The temple itself is small but this tour is about the amazing views along the 30 minute hike up to the temple from the village. The walk is steep and slippery in some parts so have good hiking shoes. My guide was very knowledgeable and had good relationships with the locals villagers.
