Excellent driver and even more excellent guide

This is an extremely long activity, they picked my partner and I up at 7:30 pm and we didn't get home till 5 pm the next day so plan your trip accordingly. Mount Ijen is very cold in the morning so wear layers. The guide we had was amazing, I have difficulties seeing at night and my guide was very helpful and patience with me especially going down to where the blue lava is. My suggestion is to leave 4 or 5pm instead because the blue lava is only active in the early morning(I would aim being there by 3-4 am). Otherwise if you miss it, it's still a neat view with the sulfur smoke and the surrounding area. This is a tough hike once you get up there so make sure you're up for the task! Otherwise I'm very happy with the activity overall!

Magnificent trip to two vulcanoes with a wonderful guide

First things first: the trip requires a lot of time in the car and wake up times out of the ordinary but it is worth the wake and the drive. The two vulcanoes are stunning, especially the Ijen. The sunrise at Mount Bromo is beautiful and the trip to the top not that hard. The Ijen trip on the other hand is more difficult and takes more time as you have to go up to the mountain and down to the crater. The guide (Famy) was fantastic. He is very funny and always keeps you up to date. If you have any questions or needs he will gladly help you. We felt safe and in good hands with him the whole time.

Great guide, amazing scenes & adventuring

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip from Bali to Java, the guide was good and very entertaining, and the driver was also friendly and made sure we got places on time. Whilst there was a lot of travelling involved to get to these 2 Ijen & Bromo, these long days were definitely worth it. Ijen was cool, but my favorite was going to the Mt Bromo crater, it was so amazing staring into the smoking crater.

Fantastic experience with excellent guides

We could not have enjoyed this trip more! Our guide was so interesting and really gave us great insight into the Mountain and the Sulphur mining industry. Our driver was so friendly, driving very safely and providing great company on both legs of the journey. I couldn't recommend this tour more!!!

Perfect organisation, simpatic staff, vulcano just amazing!

This adventure is to do in Your life! Amazing views, incredible flames and night walking on the vulcano - wow. Thank You.
