Your tour begins with pickup at your Yogyakarta hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle equipped with Wi-Fi. During the journey to Borobudur, your guide provides a historical overview of one of the largest Buddhist monuments in the world.

On arrival at the UNESCO-listed temple, marvel at a sea of bells and Buddha statues as you clamber to Borobudur’s summit and enjoy panoramic vistas of the surrounding nature.

Then, proceed to the Pawon and Mendut temples, important pilgrimage sites that attract thousands of Buddhists every year. Hear of their rich history before arriving at Mt Merapi, the most active volcano in Indonesia.

Here, you’ll board a 4x4 vehicle and conquer the rugged terrain of Mt. Merapi’s lower slopes. Marvel at its smoking summit. Please note, the jeep ride is at your own expense.

When hunger strikes, you’ll have the option to revitalize with lunch before your final stop — Prambanan. As you stroll among spectacular Hindu temples, witness an enchanting sunset that enhances the beauty of the UNESCO-listed site.

A great tour but really pricey
, Oct 2019
This is an excellent tour provided by a very professional travel agency. Our driver was punctual in meeting us, friendly and attentive. Unfortunately his English was not very good and we didn't always understood what he was saying at the minor sights. Do note that the fee does not include a guide at Borobudur or Prambanan. But you can engage one for RP150,000 per hour at both places. Given how inexpensive things are in Yogjarkarta, I found what I paid for the tour to be pricey and I suspect that one can find much cheaper alternatives.

We had a wonderful trip and our guide from Java Bali Trips, Mr. Bambang was well versed with the tour locations. He was also very accommodating and professional. Will definitely vouch for him if we do plan a return there. Also special mention to the local guide in Borubudur, Mr. Latif who impressed us with his deep knowledge on the history of this ancient site. The only downside was one our encounter with one of the street peddlers who sold us the mini replica of the stupa purportedly made from lava rock. He sold the item to us for Rp250,000, however later we found out that the item cost Rp100,000 or less. Mr, Bambang was also very concerned about this advise us to write in this review as well so that he could report to the relevant authorities. But overall it was professional arrangement which made our trip worthwhile. A big thank you to Viator and Java Bali Trips.
