First some tips: We thought the Lonely Planet exaggerates with the amount of visitors this temple gets - but by far not. Hence: If you intend to take pictures without people in it really do come exactly at 6 am and then head straight for the top, as by 6:30 already the place will be crammed (this was on a... More

We went to Yogyakarta on a guys trip to ascend Gunung Merapi and visit Borobudur and Prambanan temples. Wiedy arranged for our driver and guides for this trip and they were all friendly, punctual and spoke excellent English. Our driver, Yono, was always early and waited for us at the hotel lobby whenever he was picking us up. Ditto when... More

My friend who lives in Jakarta had recommended Wiedy's company for transport and tour. We are so happy that we went with his agency. Budhi was our driver and I wasn't expecting him to know much English just to be our driver. He was a wealth of knowledge. We had only booked the drive from Yojakarta and the sunset tour... More

I have just returned from a half hour loop around Dagi Hill, behind Borobodur. I loved it - my guide was charming, and I had an elephant with ENORMOUS tusks which was pretty cool. As we climbed Dagi Hill there were wonderful (distant) views of Borobodur and across to the smoking volcano. Even with the swaying of the elephant I... More

Just this week I did the tour with Wiety's driver and guide - and it was absolutely perfect. I did the sunrise tour for Borobudur, went back to Yogya hotel and in the afternoon went to Prambanan. My driver Budi (hopefully spelled correct) was in time, spoke good English - and so kind! Always caring if everything was alright. At... More

I spent a day visiting Borobudur and Prambanan with Wiedy, who delivered me to local guides at each stop. The guides were very experienced in handling tourists (getting the best photos), but also provided detailed explanations of each temple complex in English while still maintaining a distinctly local feel. I've used guides all over the world, and my experience with... More

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
