Tours from Cruise ship

We are on a cruise and visiting Semarang/Surabaya/Probolinggo on consecutive days in early December.

We would appreciate ideas and contacts for local tours of approximately half a day in each port.

I have posted this question on all 3 Semarang/Surabaya/Probolinggo forums.

Thanking you in anticipation

Kind regards

Deborah

For tour out of Semarang, you'll have the option of having a Semarang city tour. The city has few great historical buildings which one can explore; including the temples among others.

Another popular trip out of Semarang is to visit Borobudur temple. This would involve a long drive as it's located in different city altogether. I recommend to join the tour organized by the ship - if any - for a better time coordination.

Hi Deborah,

Your query is scattered in 3 different forums so it's hard to answer it comprehensively. For Semarang, if you want to go out of the city then you can go to Ambarawa and Salatiga area. Visit Gedong Songo temple, then to Rawa Pening, Banaran Coffee Plantation and then back to Semarang.

Some cruises docking at Semarang offer a steam train ride from Ambarawa.

If yours does, I recommend you take it: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tt/b7e5c/

Theo, how can I forget about the train museum and the steam train ride! Definitely the most interesting thing to see and do in Ambarawa.

commodora, please start your own post for that topic. One post is enough to discuss similar matters, please don't litter the forum by scattering your posts everywhere.

I posted on many sites so that others might see it somewhere on tripadvisor and not get scammed. I see it as a service, not scattering.It should stay on this forum because the topic is directly connected. Please return the tour scam article here.
