In September 2011 we spent three weeks on Sumatra, Java and Bali. We planned and travelled through Sumatra and Bali on our own, but for Java we decided to look for some professional assistence to organize our trip there.
I had read a lot of positive comments about Borobudur Tours and Travel, therefore I got in contact with them. Wiedy helped us planning the tour. We just had to tell him what we were interested in, where we wanted to go, what to see, how the stay, how to get from one sight to another and so on. He organized everything for us (the car, the driver, the guides), he made the reservations (accomodation) and gave us millions of excellent tips and answered all our plentiful questions in detail and promptly. He provided invaluable help and worked very professional.
Borobudur Tours and Travel - highly recommended !!!

Wiedy and our driver was there to pick us up at the airport and we had a most wonderful time exploring old temples and the city. The tour is highly professional and are able to accommodate your needs and requirements. We wanted to spend more time visiting the old temples and the guide are able to suggest many interesting temples even those which are less frequented by most tourist. Another most visit place is mount meals and you will be able to see first hand the devastation it caused in the 2010 eruption. The spa that the tour company brought us to is excellent as well and comes with a cheap price for a Javanese massage at rp175.000 per person. The only complain is the accommodation which is not to our liking and not a value for money stay. Wished that we have asked for another place to stay.

We did two tours around Borobudur. One organised by our hotel and one with Borobudur Tours and Travel. Both were great and interesting. Both involved local tour guides who had grown up in the area and spoke great English. Both were interested in the effects of tourism on the local community

Wiedy seemed to be putting plans into action, developing the local community - and like all of the Indonesian toursim industry, anything was possible - he picked us up from our hotel, dropped us off at our next appointment and filled in the gap with coffee / tea and a visit to some local residents.

Check it out - this world heritage site is still a relative unknown. Wiedy's the fella to show you around it.

after 7 days in Bali and before going to see some friend in Singapore, we decided to see JAVA.
Our main interest was to see temples….
The guide was highly qualified and it has been a pleasure for us to discover JAVA like that.
He adjusted the tour to our needs ''in live''(like stop to eat on the street..instead to go to a restaurant, as we wanted to see/eat like locals…)

We highly recommend this company
Serious & safe & professional & friendly : 4 adjectives that describes them perfectly.

Nous recommandons fortement cet opérateur
Sérieux & sûr & professionnel & sympathique
