What people are saying about Java

Our Guide Cokey and our driver for the day Brother Bud have made sure we had an excellent day. In Bandung city center our guides arrived perfectly on time and brought us to the White Volcano. Cokey is a real entertainer and told us many stories about the area, the volcano and the lake. But you can also ask any question you will have. He has an answer on everything. After the volcano we stopped at the Deer Station, the Lake, and the tea planatation. Then a real nice lunch at an exvellent restaurant. We learned from cokey how to eat rice in the real indonesian way. In all an excellent day. Thank you Cokey and Bud!

Cokey was a great guide, had a lot to tell and a good sense of humor, very open person with whom it is easy to bond. The crater lake was truly an experience to remember as was the small crater with the steam baths. Deer resarvation was also nice but a bit of a tourist trap. In addition, the tea fields were beautiful

We were a group of two adults and two small children, 5 & 8. Our guide/driver Ahmad was very patient, quick to enjoy the moments with us and very knowledgeable. He helped make this a very special day. Please ask for him!

Great experience thanks to our friendly and responsive coordinator and driver! Everything went very smoothly, the vehicle was comfortable, and we would gladly book with them again in the future.

great guide, good english, we were allowed to choose everything when and where & he was super knowledgeable
