Tourist Office in Solo

I would strongly recommend anyone going to Java to go to Solo and then directly to the tourist office in this city. It is run by a Patrick Orlando and if he is not too busy he drives clients to the two far off Candy Sikh and the other temple on the hill - all 50 kms away. He is an excellent driver, very kind and I got to meet his family. This was a true highlight of my stay in Java. It can all be done in half a day and so one can start early in the morning by the fast train from Yogyakarta and return on the train around 8 o'clock.

Dear WidgeParis,

please be reminded that ADVERTISING of any kind is prohibited on TA forums.

This is not even the official tourist office!

It seems to be the official tourist office, near Danar Hadi and the Wayang Orang shows. They are only open in the morning on weekdays, but have a nice map, helpful staff and yes..Patrick Orlando is still there and is a wonderful guide and driver.
