Thanks for organising our 2 days. I regret not having used your services on our last day as well...
We had a pick up at the airport and full day in Yogyakarta organised by them with drop off in our Hotel in Borobudur at night.
The driver Harry was really amazing! Very kind and careful on the road. Answers from the agency where quick and clear.
The guide at Prabanan temple was very knowledgeable and resourceful to engage our tired 4yrs old!
Guides in the Suktan palace and water palace were nice, but English a little limited but since we were with a kid and could not go into lengthy explanations it was ok.
Sunrise at Boribudour was done as requested and gave good advise to arrive earlier so to get a nice spot! Thanks!!!!

The Javanava team are experienced and knowledgeable, and also great communicators and troubleshooters. Happy to adapt and accommodate, they are enthusiastic ambassadors for the vibrant culture of Java. Best of all they are a really likeable group who endeavor to provide fun and enriching experiences. We had three great days in their company and left eager to go back to work with them again exploring more of Java. Highly recommend!

We are a group of 5 adults (mom, brother, 2 aunts and myself) went to Yogyakarta for a packed 2 day trip. Our main objective was really to see borobudur sunrise and See the sunset at prambanan. Nanang was so accommodating especially in the planning stage. He would always make sure he would reply to all of my questions and was transparent about the costs involved. I really like our driver, imam, he was very honest and he was punctual in fetching us and was always alert and patiently waited for us. My family was really happy with the service we received. I found it really easy to book with Javanava and I definitely recommend them!
My only comment for improvement was the tour guide at prambanan but they were in house tour guides- I would suggest that you get those more expensive tour guides who will give more detail and story about the temple

Day1: arrival at airport-merapi lava tour- lunch- hotel
Day 2: borobudur sunrise-hotel check out- (you could do the sultan village but we opted not to)-2 more temples(smaller)- prambanan sunset- dinner (gudeg)- travel to airport

Many visitors associate Indonesia with the beaches of Bali and, while there's surely much to be said for them, the heart and soul of Indonesia can be found in Central Java. On a recent trip to Yogyakarta and Borobudur, we visited sights in Yogyakarta on our own, but it wasn't until we put ourselves in the expert, caring, and reliable hands of Nanang, Andri, and Tomo at Javanava Travelcafe that we truly were welcomed into this beautiful culture. In their company, we toured Surakarta (Solo), Prambanan, and the temple and surroundings of Borobudur. Not to be missed are trekking in the Menoreh Hills with Nanang and witnessing everyday life in the village of Borobudur on bicycle. To be with Nanang and Andri is to experience this amazing corner of the world through the eyes of Javanese for whom the nature and people of this area are not just beautiful but always to be treasured.

Regardless of what you seek from your travels, Javanava Travel Cafe can help with transportation and housing, touring, and any other needs, all at a very reasonable cost. They are not only excellent travel planners, they are wonderful companions who love showing visitors all the wonders of central Java.

We are happy to hear that you really saw our beautiful Java and touched its hospitality that we love so much.
It was wonderful 4 days with you for us too!

Sadly, Java is not famous yet as a travel destination even there are so many places where are worth to come.
Please tell what you saw/experienced here to your families & friends.
Your mouth will be a bigger ad than anything else.

Java still has many beautiful places!
So please visit to Java again in the future!

On our arrivl date we missed our plane and they have resent a modify program to adapt to the situation. We have been followed during our stay by Mayo our driver who has always been on time and as always accomodate our needs. I was a great experience to discover Java and with them it has been very easy and comfortable.
We hav never queued anywhere, they have provided advise and made sure we were lacking nothing
