About
Watching the sun rise behind the 72 bell-shaped stupas atop Borobudur is a signature Java experience. Enjoy this and more with the convenience of your own private driver, who’ll collect and drop off at most Yogyakarta locations. Besides Borobudur, admire two smaller temples—Pawon Temple and Mendut Temple—and race across the lava slopes of Mt. Merapi in a 4WD. Entrance fees and 4WD tickets are at your own expense.

Beautiful Borobudur

Special visit to watch the sun rise over Borobudur temple. Breakfast was included but not necessary Guide didn’t accompany us up the temple but was otherwise great ! Stopped for coffee afterwards — with civets choosing the beans. Guide was very accommodating

Flexible and caring
Dec 2019 • Solo
My driver Mega was very kind and caring plus fairly flexible. As I wasn't feeling well, I asked him to skip Merapi park's 4WD activity and he suggested me another off-beat place to go instead.
You might find a slightly cheaper driver in the city for similar tour but highly unlikely to be English- fluent one. I recommend this tour over taking risks for a penny.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent tour by Ardi in a comfortable new airconditioned car. It exceeded our expectations. Ardi was very articulate and knowledgable.The sunrise at Borobudur was awesome. There were extra surprises we enjoyed. The breakfast at the Borobudur function area was exceptional and made the admission price very good value. A visit to the Lewak (crap) coffee roaster shop at Pawon will provide bragging stories. It was personalised for our preferences. We were very privileged to experience all of this.

Best Experience with our Driver
Nov 2019
I highly recommend booking with this company.

My tour guide/driver Ardee was punctual, friendly, genuine and extremely knowledgeable. He showed up to my hotel at least 10-15 minutes before he was suppose to be there and patiently waited until me and my boyfriend were ready to go.

It was the little things he did that made our day so great! He asked us whether we had everything we needed like our passport before leaving. He also was very aware and could tell whether we wanted to chat or not. When we did chat, he was able to answer almost every single question we had about the temples, culture, modern day Indonesia, government, politics, etc.

One of the best things was he showed us local spots that were not on the itinerary when we asked, such as taking us to the most expensive coffee in the entire world. He was very flexible with the itinerary which made us feel at ease.

Overall, he was a safe driver, quick to answer our text messages, and he made our day so much easier and hassle-free.

Cannot recommend them enough!

Amazing Exerience
Oct 2019
The driver/guide, Ardi, was a very good english speaker and very knowleagable. I have learned alot about the local customs and religions. The only downside is that the temple fees are more expensive than the tour itself, so be prepared for that. Overall i recommend this tour, Borobudur is unique and the trip up to Merapi, 2nd most active volcano in the world, was mindblowing.

Awesome Experience
This was an awesome experience for all of us. Java Bali Trips takes good care of you. The itinerary is very flexible so no rush going through the site. Ardi is a professional tour guide and he speaks English very well. He describes everything about the temple. The jeep ride is a lot of fun, more so if you have children. I highly recommend booking this package.

Thanks for reviewing, we have two options different prices and inclusions. we are sure if you purchase the transport service only (private tour not sharing) with English speaking driver. This package is to whom would explore Borobudur temples etc. privately which is excluded entrance fee, and you manage your time visit in each spots. While, the other Borobudur sunrise tour is all inclusive with higher price. Thanks you so much to give a best review...

Sunrise at Borobudur
Aug 2019
The journey started at 3:30 am and we made it to the top on time for the sunrise. However, it was too misty and we could not see it. After the day got brighter, we spent time exploring the magnificent temple and then went down for breakfast, that was included in the tour. This tour includes the driver and breakfast only. Any tickets to temples are paid in addition.
After Borobudur, we went to see it from below, on the way back through some other small temples (also paid separately). Near one of them, we got to visit a place where they produce luwak coffee and we sat down to try it.
The tour also included going up to a mountain on a jeep (paid separately), but it was too misty for that, so we just headed back to the hotel for a rest.
Even though we did not see the sunrise from the postcards, the temple is still worth visiting.

Good Option for an organized tour/driver
Aug 2019 • Solo
As many people have already specified you are getting an English speaking driver, not a tour guide. He will pick you up at 3:30 am from your hotel and remind you about a pick up a day before via ‘what’s up’ if available. His English is pretty good comparing to others. After driving for about an hour, you will get to Borobudur to see the sunrise. He will collect your money and get you a ticket for 475,000 IDR or about 35 USD, so make sure you have plenty of cash on hands. Then, he will show you where to go, and you just follow the crowd... walk for about 15 minutes an you are in the temple... be prepared for lots of tourists just like you and be considerate, everyone is in the same boat. At 7pm, he will expect you back, you will have your breakfast at the ticket office. Then, you head to the other two small temples (underwhelming to my liking, but matter of preference). Then, you will drive for about an hour and a half to Merapi volcano... from the base you are one your one with the Jeep driver for which you have to pay separately - also about 450,000 IDR. I didn’t go because the day was very cloudy and one couldn’t see the volcano. Instead, we headed to Prambanan Temple for additional 150,000 IDR for driving me there. The temple was as amazing as Borobudur, totally worth the visit. The driver again collected my money for the entrance 350,000 IDR or about 25USD, and went to some shady office for an e-ticket (located a bit further from the temple) instead of getting the tickets at the official counter in Prambanan itself. The price seemed the same, but I don’t understand why stop somewhere else for the ticket and not getting it at the entrance, there were no lines or people at the entrance whatsoever. The he dropped me off at the hotel. What I didn’t like: I asked to stop at the money exchange if one is on the way, it’s seemed like there was nothing of that sort, instead the driver asked me how much money I want to change and what’s the rate I changed it before. I feel that it’s unprofessional to ask such things. Another thing, is the collecting money for the entrance in advance... if I’m going everywhere by myself anyways, why does he collect my money, instead of me buying the tickets on my own. I didn’t like that and found it suspicious. I liked that he did stop at the store to get me an electric plug that I needed after I saw the store that was on the way. Otherwise he would have probably forgotten as it was at the end of the tour. In town you can also get yourself a driver for a bit less but with worse English. But if you want to save yourself from the hassle, I would recommend this company.
