Great Private Tour

The private tour with Didi was great. We had a great conversation with the tour guide to and from our hotel. On our way home he asked us if we wanted to go the same way home or go via the scenic route with rice fields which we took. He also asked if he wanted to get some kopi luwak which we were talking about on the way there. So we stopped for a cup on the way home. There are other tours/options to visit the Borobudur Temple but this one was worth it.

Highly recommended

Wery good option for a half day. Mr. Yuni is an excellent driver and guide and nice person. The VIP option is well worth the extra money, not only to skip the line, you are brought to a different entrance that is much closer to the temple. Visited two small temples on the way back, and a very nice monastry.

Geweldig! VIP entree is een aanrader

We hebben een halve dag privé tour naar de Borobudur geboekt inclusief VIP entree (optie). Dat was super! Op slechts 3 minuten lopen vanaf een speciale VIP parkeerplaats bereik je de Borobudur. Inbegrepen is een hapje en een drankje op het overdekte terras nabij de Borobudur, parkeerkosten en entreeticket. Je hoeft dan niet in de rij te staan voor een ticket en bespaart een tocht van ca. 1,5 km lopen. Ter plaatse kun je nog een gids huren. Onze chauffeur (Praja) was erg vriendelijk, reed veilig, had een nette auto en vertelde veel over Indonesië. Onze reis vanaf ons hotel in YogYakarta ging ook door het binnenland en dat was erg mooi. Na afloop werden we keurig op tijd bij ons hotel afgezet (want we moesten nog een vlucht halen). Zeer de moeite waard!
