We really enjoyed our trip with Blue Flame Tour, although my boyfriend got sick the second day and couldn‘t do the Ijen Trek.
Booking the trip went really smoothly, Mr. Tony always responded quickly, answered all our questions and adapted the trip to our needs, since we didn‘t want to go to Bali afterwards. He was also available via whatsapp at all times during the trip.

We were picked up by our very nice driver Mirza right on time in Malang and he drove us savely, first to see the waterfall and then to the first accomodation next to Mount Bromo. We always had a good time with him in the car, since he was funny and spoke enough English to have a conversation.

The first accommodation (Istana Petani Homestay) was ok, but don‘t expect to much. The building is quite old, everything was a little bit humid because of the rain and the bathroom was very basic. We were the only guests, the staff doesn‘t really speak English and we ended up having Pop Mie for dinner. This being said: the accomodation did not really bother us, since we were leaving for Mount Bromo during the night anyway.

The guide for Mount Bromo was nice and we had a great view of the crater. Unfortunately, Bromo is very crowded and going there in one of the hundreds of Jeeps was quite an experience. But everything was well organized, we had tea and fried banana there and also could go up to the crater rim.

After breakfast, Mirza drove us to Banyuwangi. We took some breaks along the way, had coffee and he took really good care of us, which was nice, since my boyfriend wasn‘t feeling well.

The second accomodation (1911 Guest House) was very nice, we stayed in a little bungalow. Everything was really clean, the bed was comfortable and the food was good.

The highlight of the trip was going to Mount Ijen. Since my boyfriend was still sick, I went alone, but felt very safe at all times. My guide, the ex-miner Arief was really really great!!! He knows so much about the vulcano, told me about his work as a miner and we had a really good time, also laughing a lot. He is very experienced and showed me the best spots of the volcano. The trek itself wasn‘t really hard and I could see the blue fire. The view from the rim was great.

Back down, he and Mirza drove me back to the hotel, we had breakfast and they brought us to the hotel we had booked for the following nights. We also got a cake as a présent, which was very nice. Mr. Tony even organized our transport to
the train station for some days after the trip.

We highly recommend doing the 3D2N-Trip with this company, especially since their staff is so great!

Matur nuwun, Arief and Mirza :)

Fantastic tour with our guide denish.

Communication was perfect we knew exactly what to expect and you always surpassed our expectations at every part of the tour. He brought us free fantastic Indonesian cake; he brought us to the best viewpoints, he took absolutely fantastic pictures we can use for social media and Instagram.

He voluntarily following our wish to the 201 and a half hours longer than it was actually planned we were among the last ones to actually leave the volcano because we wanted to stay on top and continue enjoying the sunrise he was very fine with that.

Also Denish had great stories to share and we had a day full of laughter

He fulfilled all our wishes and he and the team habe my fill recommendation.

Also, the orga team around johanes helped to find safe parking spot and free pickup at gilimanuk harbours so that I did not have to park my scooter overnight in the public space. Else, very punctual, reliable, safe driving. Everything correct and perfect. Thanks Denish and ali (driver)

What a wonderful experience this was! We went to the Madakaripura waterfall, Bromo vulcano and Ijen. Perfect order as well, as tour gets more special each day!

Blue Flame tours had arranged everything for us. Places to sleep, a ferry ticket to Bali at the end of the tour, a driver for 3 days and 3 lovely guides for the 3 different places we visited. We even got tea and friend banana on top of the vulcanos when we arrived while it was only 10 degrees celcius outside. The only thing we had to arrange ourselves was lunch and diner. Blue Flame was one of the cheaper organisations who offered this tour, and it did not dissapoint. The homestays were clean with lovely staff, good breakfast (for when you came back from the vulcano adventures at night around 8 in the morning haha), and nice beds.
It was a crazy adventure and in our opinion is a tour like this a MUST DO if you visit the region. One of a kind experience.

Matur nuwun/terima kasih/thank you!

We had a wonderful experience in our 4D3N trip! Our driver Mr. Mali is very nice and patient. Even there is a long drive, he had no complain. And our guide in Bromo Wawan is very experienced and he would like to guide us to the best sunrise viewpoint. Even though we had a hard time climbing up to the viewpoint because of the slippery mountain road and fallen down again and again, he was always on the side of us and helping us. Mr. Tulus is our guide in Ijen. He is very friendly, fluent in English and shared with us about many stories. He always encouraged us and helped us to climb the dangerous crater. Even though there are some pities in the trip due to the bad weather, it is still an unforgettable experience. Will recommend our friends for sure!!

Wow! We did the 3 day 2 night ijen/bromo tour. We had an amazing time. Right from the beginning when I sent a message to Johanes the experience was organized, seamless, and pleasant. I received a detailed itinerary and he answered all of my questions thoroughly. They had a driver pick us up in Ubud and from there everything was taken care of. Our accommodation, travel and food was very well organized and even better than expected.

The tour itself exceeded expectations. Arief, our tour guide, is an ex-miner and was incredibly knowledgeable about both ijen crater and bromo. He was also a lovely person and made us feel like close friends right from the start. We ended up losing a member of our group (our fault but we found him!) who was carrying all of our gear on the ijen crater hike and Arief generously gave my brother his mask and had a spare for me. I was impressed how much he really cared about our safety the whole tour! He also taught us bits of the local language and took us to a delicious local food spot which was a bonus. 11/10 when it comes to tour guides. :) thanks Arief!

Our driver, Hendrik, was also a pleasure to spend our time with! He went well and beyond his duty as driver; he always greeted us with a smile and made sure we were having a good time. On our last day he made sure we were fed and happy. Thank you Hendrik for keeping us safe and happy throughout the whole journey!

Overall I would recommend blue fire tours to anyone who wants to explore this beautiful area of East Java.

Monggo Johanes, Arif and Hendrick!! :)

We had an amazing 3 days with Arief (ex miner) and our driver Hendrik. We visited Ijen, Madakaripura Waterfall & Bromo.

They were very professional and we had lots of laughs and learnt a lot. Arief is very knowledgeable about all of the spots, especially Ijen as he is an ex miner.

I would recommend this company for your tour, they have a competitive rate and provide great accommodation in the multi-day package.

Monngo Arief!

An amazing experience with our guide Arief and Agus the driver. We travelled to Java from Ubud and the company made sure our journey was well organised and stress-free.

Arief picked us up in Java, gave us tips on trekking up the volcano and made sure that the challenging descent to the crater was safe for us. As an ex-miner he provided a lot of information about the life of the miners and the area. He was very attentive, acommodating and happy to take lots of pics of us.

The volcano itself is unbelievably beautiful, it feels like you are on a different planet. Definitely recommend this experience.

Monggo and Matur Nuwun Johanes Tony, Arief and Agus 🌋🙏

So happy and glad that I chose Blueflame tour for our trip to Mt. Ijen. Johanes was so prompt with the booking and we had a great experience all along - we were picked up on time from our place in Ubud, dropped all the way till the ferry and picked up by our awesome guide Tulus from the Java ferry station. Tulus got us googles to keep our eyes safe from the smoke, helped my wife descend the crater safely - he went above and beyond what we expected. At the end of the trip, Johanes had some amazing brownies waiting for us.

If you’re looking to do the Ijen trek, Blueflame tour is the best option there is.

As we were looking for a Ijen Tour guide, we've contacted three agencies. Blueflame Tour was by far the most expensive. But they acted also by far most professional and offered addional bonuses and experiences which others don't. The communication is outstanding, you get always a very quick and very informational reply on your request. So we decided to invest in a great experience and have choosen them, even when we paid double then the two other agencies. We realized quickly, it was the right choice. We expected to join a group tour, but we had our very own guide and rider. Tulus and Hendrik, woderful team! We've met at the basecamp another guide of the same agencie with his customers, took a last drink and got a great tour. What's also unique, Blueflame Tour is the ONLY agnecy which offers also safety goggles, so your eyes get not sick of the strong smoke on the crater. We have not seen any other people having them and we were more than happy to also protect our eyes from the smoke. After the hike we went to see a coffee platantion and visited a wonderfull waterfall. Our guide also recommended us a very nice local meal and where we can eat it. Rujak Soto, woow! 🥰👌 thank you so much for this great morning! 😍

I arranged a trip to Ijen with Johannes by email. A driver came to our hotel in Ubud, who drove us to the port of Gilimanuk in 3.5 hours at night, another guide took us to the ship (1 hour of sailing) and we were picked up by 2 nice boys - driver Kiki and guide Theo. They took us to the first starting point to Ijen from where we set off on foot from Theo. The night trip with Theo to the top was great, we felt very well with him. I don't know if we've seen the popular Blueflame Tour Arif but all the guides in Ijen are in very good touch and in the best moods. We saw blue flames and the work of miners whom we have respect for, everything went great. On the way back, the same driver took us to the hotel without any problems. So the whole organization and the people did a great job, which is why I highly recommend Blueflame Tour (they have other trips in the area on offer) and I will recommend to my friends. Theo, Kiki, Johannes, Mr. Samson and two ship assistants - thank you! You are the best!
