From Bali: Private Yogyakarta Day-Trip with Flight Option

1. From Bali: Private Yogyakarta Day-Trip with Flight Option

Get picked up from your hotel, head to the airport and hop on a plane for a full-day adventure in Yogyakarta on Java Island. Once landed, you will meet your professional guide and head to Indonesia's largest and most beautiful Hindu temple, Prambanan. Learn about the history and folklore of the ninth-century temple before going to the Sultan Palace Kraton. Built in 1790, the Sultan Palace Keraton remains a center of the walled city with shops, markets, schools, mosques and the city’s batik dyeing and silver industries. Your next destination is the world's largest Buddhist Temple and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Borobudur Temple. An example of Indonesia’s classic art and architecture, the temple consists of three monuments, which together represent the phases in the attainment of nirvana. Upon arrival back in Bali, you will be picked up and brought back to your hotel. This is a perfect tour if you have only one day for exploring the Yogyakarta area and want to see its most famous sites.

This activity was excellent!! Ivan was my driver, and he is such a nice person who was very knowledgeable about the region and was just great to talk with. He was able to help set me up with tour guides at Borobudur and Prambanan as well as a driver who spoke English for the Jeep excursion. After we finished at Prambanan, he offered to take me to Kota Gede, the area where silver is made, since it was on the way back to my hotel. He was very accommodating and I would highly recommend anyone request him if you are doing this activity. The only issue I had was that although I was told I would receive an email or call the day before the activity, I received neither. Thankfully Ivan was there on time, but I would have appreciated receiving some type of confirmation from the company as had been stated on the initial booking email I received.

The driver was on time and friendly And driving safely!! He hooked us up with a guide to the first temple that was funny and knowledgeable made the whole experience even better, showed us where to take really nice pictures. We will never forget it. The jeep trip was beautiful and everybody were so nice and by the time we got to the second temple we were tired so our driver suggested that we take a bike to look around and that was a great suggestion we did that and we had so much fun. Great tour I would highly recommend it

It was a great adventure!!! What we saw was amazing, but even more impressive was the logistics behind our travel. Our trip was flawless. Our local guide, Widi, was on time and extremely friendly. He was wonderfully knowledgeable, and he made our trip special. We highly recommend this tour to everyone!!!

Sunrise at The temple was just amazing!!! We definitely suggest to take a local guide there. Entire trip well organised time-wise and very friendly driver and people we met. Adam
