We had a wonderful day. Bowo picked us up on time and took us first to the Prambanan and when we were done there he brought us to the Borobudur. He got us our tickets, so we wouldn't have to wait in line. We could contact him all the time on WhatsApp that was very nice of him. The car rides were very fun, he played good music and we chatted. Overall we had a great day and we thank Bowo so much for it! :)

I got a solo car as I was the only one who'd booked for that day. The temples are grand & spectacular. The guide (Mr Koko?) at Prambanan was very knowledgable and explained the history & restoration process with passion. Overall, it was an enriching experience. Be prepared for heat though as the Yogja sun does get quite hot as you walk around in Prambanan grounds.

Loved this experience. Very friendly staff who are full-time batik artists themselves. They have multiple strategies to ensure your painting turns out well. Took a little longer (7hrs) than I expected but that depends on my own skill level & complexity of what I choose to make.

Great experience with amazing guides. We really enjoyed the enthusiasm of guide Yovi and had great conversations with our driver Bima from which we learned a lot about Indonesia. Both amazing people so would definitely recommend. Temples were also nice btw ;)

He is really kind and help us to make our tour great!
