Highly recommend this trip with our tour guide Nam and driver Mr Fait. Only change would have been to go on this trip on a weekday instead (Mountains were much busier on weekend and entry tickets more expensive on Sundays).

We did a 3D2N trip from Malang to Ubud covering Madakaripura Waterfall (Was an additional price), Mount Bromo, Mount Ijen. Included in the price of 3.4m RP was tour guide and driver, accommodation and transport along the way from Malang to your stay in Bali. Additional prices were entry tickets to Mount Bromo, Mount Ijen and waterfall.
Accommodation in the homestays were lovely and included breakfast.
The sunrise trips to the mountains were a bit tiring but more than worth it. If possible go on weekday to avoid crowds.
Nam was an excellent tour guide who was able to adapt to changes in availability of transport and weather and Mr Fait was an efficient driver.

Again would recommend this unique experience!

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful 4d3n with our tour guide, Ari and our driver, Wahyu.

Ari speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable about Indonesia, providing many interesting insights and explaining to us a lot of things such as the phenomenon of the craters, blue fire, and about the sulfur miners, porters etc.

While we were on the road, he would also point things out to us we would have otherwise missed (teak trees, cassava plants, cabbage plantations, the different mountains, traditional wedding events etc).

He ensured our safety during our hike with constant check ins and allowed us ample time to catch our breath. He was very patient as we snap tons of pictures and had many photo requests which we appreciate a lot. He also recommended the best spots for pictures!

Due to the challenging weather conditions, Ari also helped us to constantly monitor the weather throughout the night (sacrificing his sleep!!) and gave us multiple updates on whether we could still go with plan.

Wahyu on the other hand, was very friendly too and has really good driving skills which made the few hours long journey so smooth that we could rest in the car.

There turned out to be many changes in our itinerary and both of them were very flexible such that they were on standby almost 24hr and were ready to leave to anywhere at anytime.

Despite the gloomy and rainy season, we still managed to have lots of fun thanks to Ari and Wahyu. We couldn’t ask for any better, we highly recommend the both of them :)

We are two ladies and covered Madakaripura Waterfall, Mount Bromo and Ijen crater. Andrean was our guide and Adi was our driver. They were both very punctual in picking us from the airport and knew their way around to bring us to the attractions despite unforeseen road blocks.

The Madakaripura Waterfall was really majestic. Andrean and the local guide brought us around to the good spots for photo-taking and ensured we were safe.

Mount Bromo was also beautiful. Although it rained and the weather was cloudy to see the sunrise, Andrean and Adi took us to other spots to still catch the beauty of the volcano.

Finally, the hike up Ijen Crater was intense but Andrean allowed us to go at our own pace and took care of our safety, always looking out for wind directions for the sulphur gas and informing us.

Overall, Andrean took many beautiful photographs and videos for us and captured many memories which we can look back to reminisce on. He also shared alot of information with us on the attractions and the country. Adi was also a very alert driver who made sure we got safely to our destinations. It was a very pleasant experience and I would highly recommend to embark on your travels with them!

I had planned this trip before the pandemic several years ago as part of a group but that didn’t go ahead, nevertheless I have made up my mind that this was a trip that I wanted to do whether as a group or on an invisible basis.

At first I was cautious and felt the cost was too high, but in the end I have no regrets and the trip was worth every penny paid.

Ari and Dino were excellent guides, they went beyond their call of duty to make sure that everything went seamless from carrying my camera back up Mount Ijen, and that is no easy task to giving their poncho to protect my camera kit from the waterfall leaving themselves unprotected and consequently getting totally soaked.

I have no hesitation in recommending Java Adventure Trail, they made sure from the time I arrived at Malang Airport to my pickup in Bali ferry port to the hotel went to schedule and totally seamless

Not least where the various drivers who onsite or the challenging roads and traffic, they made sure we were all safe.

Thanks guys

We had a great tour to Mount Bromo and Ijen Crater with our guide Andrean. The guys picked us up at our hostel in Malang and took us to the Bromo area. At night we got up to begin our trip and see the beautiful sunrise with view on the vulcano. Since there were a lot of tourists visiting that day, Andrean decided to spontaneously change the view spot for seeing the sunrise to avoid the masses of people and traffic jam on the way, which we appreciated a lot.
After the sunrise, we visited the Crater, had breakfast and then continued our ride to the Ijen area. Since we wanted to see the blue fire, we got up in the middle of the night again to start our tour. Even though the hike up the hill was pretty exhausting, it was totally worth it. Seeing the blue fire was impressive but especially the sunrise after was spectacular. It was one of the most beautiful things we've seen so far! After breakfast the guys dropped us off at the ferry to Bali and on the other side a really kind driver already waited for us to bring us to our hotel in Ubud.

We felt really secure and well taken care of the whole trip. Sofyan's team did a great job, showed us the most beautiful spots and Andrean made sure he took a lot of photos of us to remember this beautiful experience. We definetly recommend this tour :)

We had a very fantastic tour with the Java Adventure Trail, they took us from Surabaya `` Hotel Majapahit '' to Ijen crater and mount bromo. Our tour tour leaders in Surabaya Pak Ari Suherman were tremendous. He showed genuine concern and did his utmost to assist my family. My husband, who is quite big (130kgs) with the support of Pak Ari, He managed to hike all the way to the top of Kawah Ijen and Mount Bromo. Our Tour guides at Yogyakarta Pak Adam are also very responsive. He took us to taste the local food and it was very tasty. So our sincere thanks to both of them and the driver in Surabaya. We always felt safe and comfortable along the way.I really recommend this Travel Agent for those who are looking forward to exploring Indonesia.

We went for a 5D4N trip covering Mt Ijen, Sukamade Beach, Mount Bromo and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide Arie was marvellous. We had 3 kids with us, 11, 10 & 7 and he adjusted accordingly to their needs. The vehicles and drivers procured for us were very spacious too. One of my child had multiple food allergies and Arie was very careful with our food as well.

Mt Ijen - Arie knows this mountain like the back of his hands. He was able to tell us where the climb would be ok, when will it be steep etc and he guided us from all the touters extremely well. My kids were able to go up the mountains all by themselves. I am so proud of them.

Sukamade Beach - if you are ok with no amenities like aircon and hot water and abysmal lodgings, this is a good place to go and connect with nature. We actually saw giant sea turtles leaving the beach and this was actually spotted by Arie. Without him, we would not be able to witness this marvelous instance.

Mt Bromo - same like Mt Ijen, Arie also knows this mountain like the back of his hands. He secured the best spot for us to view the sunrise.

All in all, we had a very enjoyable time with Arie. His english was good and there were no issues at all with communications. In fact when we wanted a pitstop to buy some of their amazing sweet mangoes, Arie was the one who negotiated for us. My kids and us are so blessed to have Arie in this amazing journey.

Wow, awesome tour! We wanted to find a tour that included everything we wanted to do in East Java and this tour packs full of adventures. Everything was handled from accommodation to suggestions for where to eat, and even helped coordinate our ferry & taxi to Canggu after the trip. Only thing I would suggest is just adding the price of tickets and entrance fees into the overall price. Since atms don’t allow you to get much more than a million out at a time ($65usd) we had to hit multiple in our trip just so we could afford the entrance fees, dinner along the way and enough for a tip at the end. Both our tour guide Faruq & driver Wahyu were super great, always had a smile on and very energetic, setting a great tone for the trip! Faruq was always on the adventures with us and very patient when we wanted time for photos. Wahyu was a very safe driver. Highly suggest this tour if you want a grand tour of East Java.

There were eight of us on this customized trip that took us to Mt Igen and Mt Bromo and to two waterfalls - Madakaripura and Tumpak Sewu. It was a wonderful trip and we all had an enjoyable time. Most of all, being the weakest physically, climbing the volcanoes was very challenging for me and I was always the slowest. However, we had a very caring and responsible guide in Ari who made sure that I did not lose out on reaching our goals and at the same time he also ensured the safety of everyone else in the group. Getting to experience the spectacular view of Tumpak Sewu Waterfall was something that I had almost given up on but Ari encouraged and helped me to get to it safely just as he ensured that the rest of the group did so. No doubt, sightseeing and beautiful views are the most important part of any trip but it is the guide and the driver who can make a big difference to whether the trip was enjoyable and meaningful. For this trip, it was Ari who took care of all of our needs meticulously and our skillful driver Yono who made sure that we got everywhere on time. Thank you Java Adventure Trail and Ari and Yono for giving us such good memories of our trip.

We recently ventured through East Java’s awe-inspiring landscapes, visiting Ijen, Bromo, and Tumpak Sewu. This was made all the more memorable by our guide, Theo, and driver, Bams.

Theo is incredibly accommodating, providing a pace that never felt rushed. His wealth of knowledge about the area made each location come alive, enriching our overall experience.

Bams, our driver, delivered excellent service. His attention to detail is unmatched—from ensuring no sudden braking to keeping the car immaculate even after our muddy hikes in Ijen. Cold water bottles were always within arm’s reach, a small but crucial touch.

Both Theo and Bams exhibited excellent manners—polite, respectful, and always opening the door for us.

We had a fantastic time exploring East Java’s natural wonders. The whole trip was seamless, thanks to Theo and Bams. We highly recommend this experience and look forward to adventuring with them again in the future.

Would rate 5/5, without a doubt.
