Full description
There’s much to see in Yogyakarta – a large city with limited public transportation options for visitors. Hire a private vehicle and experience all the city has to offer. The driver-as-guide will pick you up at your accommodation and take you wherever you’d like to go on this 10-hour program. Check out the ancient Hindu temples of Prambanan that look like hand-drizzled sand castles or explore the Sultan's palace which is reminiscent of a gilded music box filled with jewels. The city is also well known for its arts and handicrafts, a nerve center for traditional and modern puppetry. Your driver-as-guide will take you to your favorite spots, explain everything you need to know about the attractions, and will wait for you. If you love having freedom of choice and having fun at your own pace, this is the best way to discover Yogyakarta.

An extremely polite, experienced and good English-speaking guide drove me around the area around Yoghakarta according to my wishes and told a lot of interesting things (without being pushy with the stories). Perfect day: Borobudur, then Buddhist monastery, a volcano tour (extra cost, unfortunately there was no visibility, but still an experience), Prambanan. Recommended.

While I had some issues with the initial scheduling (the company never contacted me about when pickup was supposed to be and I ended up having to contact them instead), the rest of the experience was extremely pleasant. I had the wonderful opportunity of having Yuni has my driver and immediately, I knew it was going to be pleasant journey within the first minutes of talking to him as he's an extremely fun person to converse with while he professionally drives down the streets of Yogyakarta. Not only is he just a driver though, he's able to give recommendations on where to go: I had some extra time for the day and Yuni took me to a temple I had never had even heard of but enjoyed very much. At some of the stops, he even accompanied me into the place because he wanted to see it as well and he was more than happy to also take photos of me in addition to providing a bit of explanation as well. Even on the drive back, I learned so much about Indonesian culture just chatting with him.

I wanted to visit Borobudur and Prambanan, but didn’t need a guide into the sites. It seemed cheaper to hire a driver since I had to pay the entry myself anyways, and just needed to get from my hotel to the temples. The tours were all over $100 plus entry fees, but hiring a driver and car was only $45. Ivan was fantastic, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a driver. He was very friendly, and spoke fantastic English. When I told him what I wanted to do in my one day in Yogyakarta, he said I would have more time to add another activity and recommended a Jeep tour of the volcano. It was a great recommendation and I had a great day. Definitely ask him for any recommendations he has.
