“Amazing volcano trip”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We traveled out to Anak Krakatoa from Jakarta over a recent weekend and had a fantastic time The tour was organized by Samsul, www.krakatau-ecotour.com, and he did a great job. His prices were more affordable than other guides we had contacted. We took the boat out, about 1.5-2 hours depending on the weather conditions, had a nice lunch on a beach followed by a jungle hike, went snorkeling, and then set up camp at a beach across from the volcano. We had beautiful sunset views and could see some of the activity at Krakatoa after dark. Next day we went to the volcano, climbed up to level 1, and then took the boat back to Jakarta. Everything was provided by Sam and his team, though I recommend you bring your own sleeping bag and pad. Day trip options are also available.

“Fantastic trip, courtesy of Apud from www.krakatauujungkulontours.com”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Back in 2010 me and five friends spent four days in and around Krakatau with Apud as out tour guide. We went to the Ujung Kulong national park and Krakatau volcano. The whole trip was beautifully arranged by Apud and his team, they took fantastic care of us and provided us with spectacular views and great food. Apud is the nicest guy, he even invited us in to his personal home for dinner. I cannot say enough nice things about this trip, just go!
