after 7 days in Bali and before going to see some friend in Singapore, we decided to see JAVA.
Our main interest was to see temples….
The guide was highly qualified and it has been a pleasure for us to discover JAVA like that.
He adjusted the tour to our needs ''in live''(like stop to eat on the street..instead to go to a restaurant, as we wanted to see/eat like locals…)

We highly recommend this company
Serious & safe & professional & friendly : 4 adjectives that describes them perfectly.

We found this company on the internet and had 4 nights stay in the area.
We had contact through Wiedy, told him what we would like to see (which was not on a standard tour) he made suggestions, allowed us to alter what we wished and came up with an itinery that was perfect for us.
It all worked out very smoothly and though I have no other quotes to compare this to it was very good value for us.
I would recommend this company to anyone and the Borobudur area as well worth a visit.

I travelled to Java with three of my friends in July 2010. There are so many tour companies advertising trips through Java but I chose to book with Borobudur Tour and Travel after reading a good review on Trip Advisor. We were restricted with our dates but Ms. Trie designed an itinerary which suited our needs perfectly. We began our trip in Jogjakarta where we met Wiedy, our excellent tour guide and Prie our driver. We were all delighted with the personalised service provided by Borobudur Tour and Travel. The sights we saw along the way were truly amazing. If you are thinking of visiting Java -contact this company!

I should have mentioned that the tour guide/driver we arranged through borobudurtravelandtours made the the days in Central Java as great as they were. He knew we wanted to get off the beaten path and boy did we do so. It is amazing how a good guide can make or break a trip. I did find out he was a little more expensive than other firms but with his knowledge and command of the English language and engaging personality when you are spending thousands of dollars on a trpo an extra $100USD for 4-5 days is a "drop in the bucket", in my opinion.
