Tour from ship docked at Semarang - for Borobudur Borobudur Well worth seeing, in VG condition. Traffic is horrendous, so you will need a police escort to guarantee getting back to the ship in time. My husband thought the police escort was the highlight of the trip. A well organised tour with very knowledgeable guide. Lunch was smorgasbord with very... More

I was very pleased with my stay in Java. And, my thanks go to the owner of BT&T, Wiedy who made it all possible. Both tour guides were excellent. I learned a lot about the temples. Watching sunrise over Borobudur with the two volcanoes in the background cannot be missed. I had booked a hotel at Borobudur but Wiedy suggested... More

It was our first time to Borobudur and we notice that the price offered was a bit steep but to experience great Sunrise view experience we decided to use their service. When we reached Jogyakarta, we realised that locals and foreigners ticketing prices are so much different when we visited Prambanan (another Candi). So we realised that travel agent must... More

Our driver and guide picked us up in a comfortable A/C vehicle in the morning when we got off the ship. We were supposed to be off earlier but did not get clearance to leave until 9:30 AM. The company did not ask for an advance deposit, even though their guide and driver had to drive over 2 hours from... More

Visited Yogyakarta for 3D2N and signed up a private tour package with JavaIndah-Tours.com. I did a Borobudur sunrise tour followed by a visit to Dieng plateau on my first day, it was simply breathtaking! Dieng plateau is a place that is not often visited my foreigners outside of Indonesia, and it is strongly recommended despite the long journey up the... More

A must-visit cultural heritage. Waking up as early as 3am was the right thing to do. It was an amazing experience.

This place is worth to be one of the world heritages. Can't believe that it was built by human, the structure was so complex and beautiful, which required very skillful artisans. From the peak of Borobudur, I can see the forest, mountains and attraction far away. It will be quite hard to explore the meaningful of Borobudur if you don't... More

We booked a retour fly from Denpasar to Jogjakarta with Garuda Indonesia and we contacted Java Indah Tour & Travel Yogyakarta for the tour.

Not everyone has a chance in their life to do business in the middle of Java. But if you do, take an extra day at the beginning or end to visit the Temple on the Hill at Borobudur. It is an extraordinary temple site, built with skill handcraftmanship. It is worth taking a tour, as there is allot that you... More

"Boro" means temple and "budur" means hill. Which means "the temple on a hill". It a well maintained world heritage site compared to Angkor Wat. The latest entrance fee is IDR280,000. Price has increased by another IDR30,000 from last month. Before it was IDR230,000. Local only pay IDR30,000 to visit here. Is unfair but no choice. We did not go... More
