I arranged a tour of Central Java with the owner Wiedy Antara well in advance and this went well. It was a private 6 day tour starting with an airport pickup in Surabaya then driving to Malang, then Blitar, onto Yogyakarta, Dieng Plateau, Borobudur and visiting the main highlights of these places. Our disappointment was that our driver guide did... More

I always have reservations when faced with a choice of travelling with a tour operator. Sometimes you get the short end of the stick. However Pak Wiedy, Mr, Budy and the excellent guides they've arranged made this trip memorable. Prior to the trip there were numerous itinerary changes due to some friends dropping out of the trip. Pak Wiedy was... More

fabulous tour. Driver picked us up from hotel at 3:30 am. 45 minute drive to site. Met local guide, Fathah, there. He lives in local village and truly believes in Buddhist philosophy. He provided a great overview of the temple compound and communicated stories about carvings with wonderful k owl edge & creativity. Although there was significant cloudiness, we did... More

We visited Yogyakarta during December, so it was quite rainy and tourist attractions were busy due to the school holidays. However, we still had a great time visiting Borobodur and Prambanan, and we would highly recommend booking a tour with Wiedy at Borobodur Tours and Travel. Although it was a wet morning and the cloud spoilt the picturesque view of... More

Jl Balaputradewa no 72 Cawangsari Borobudur Magelang Wanting to visit Dieng Plateau after visiting Candi Borobudur we somehow ended up at this small agency located on the main drag as one approaches the ruins from Yogya. Our guide, Saiful, quoted us IRP700k for a full day of village hopping and drive up to Dieng. While I thought I could have... More

This was one of the best tours we took on our recent visit to Southeast Asia. Our tour guide was great. We learned so much about the Borobudur Temple and the culture of the area. Our guide and driver made sure that we went everywhere we wanted. Everything went smoothly making it a memorable day!

If you take the time to visit Borobudur, it would be a big miss if you do not get up at 5 am to see the sunrise. We stayed at the hotel Manohara, which allowed me to make multiple visits to Borobudur. The temple looks very different depending on the light at various times of the day, meaning hundreds more...

Weidy met us (3 adults) at the hotel at exactly the time we arranged. Everything was exactly as he had said it would be. The day was in our control and we could do what we liked. The vehicle was a comfortable 4X4. Our driver had an emergency at his house and politely asked if we could detour past his... More

I recently returned from a day long tour (as a solo traveler) to Borobudur.. and based on tripadvisor comments, I contacted Weidy to help organize my day... The price I paid for the entire package was less than trying to make the bookings myself!! Weidy picked me up at the airport, organized my entire tour, added a couple of attractions... More
