What people are saying about Sightseeing in Yogyakarta
Yogyakarta Jomblang Cave and river tubing experience at Pindul Cave were indescribable experience , you have to feel it by yourself . Jomblang Cave gave the true experience when you hike a cave wearing all the boots and equipment. You can use your phone torchlight or bring a torchlight separately. Pindul Cave you are recommended to bring waterproof camera or you can hire a camera man there who provide unlimited photos and few videos. Swimming 1km plus at the river was fun and tiring .
Driver was punctual and notify us time to pick up. Was worried before I book this trip as I stay in Borobudur where it says pick up at Yogyakarta area. Glad I decided to book and the driver pick us up with no additional charges. Sunrise is based on luck though and if you stay in Yogyakarta, prepare to get up early or skip your sleep.
Private visits to Borobudur and Prambanan with English speaking guides at both temples were truly amazing and best of my stay in Yogyakarta. I considered sunrise tour as well, but I really wanted to see the temples structures and buildings (which you cannot do in the darkness) and also wanted to take time to walk around in my pace, so I arranged a private tour in a day time starting from the hotel in Yogyakarta at 8 am and I was back by the hotel before 17:00, which was perfect! I highly recommend to add guides in both temples with KLOOK, which makes the entrance process very smooth and you don’t loose time and they do give you very good experienced guides. Transportation with very clean car with AC, and English speaking driver was very comfortable as well. I will
Driver texted us a day before to ensure all info given is correct. I was picked up on time at 3am and soon joining others to the site. It was a bit cold and lucky to have it with me. The stupa site itself is absolutely amazing and very instagrammable! Breakfast were served through the end of the tour. Nothing to complain! This is a must tour when visit Yogyakarta!
It was such a wonderful experience and definitely a highlight in my whole Yogyakarta trip! The driver was nice, I could watch wonderful sunrise. Tip! If you want to experience the temple without large crowd, leave the top of the temple earlier than others. When I went there it was little bit cloudy so we couldn't see see the clear sunrise view. So i left the top of the temple earlier, and it turned out to be a great choice since I could experience the whole place without big crowd.
One of the highlights of my Yogyakarta trip. Driver arrived on time for pick-up. Just make sure that the hotel you are staying in is within their designated pick-up points. If not, they will contact you and will need to have an agreement where is the best pick-up location for you that is within their pick-up point. The van is air-conditioned and very comfortable. Seeing sunrise from Borobudur Temple is such a wonderful experience. Breakfast is included after spending an hour or two at the temple.
