I booked the 3-day tour from Surabaya and we visited Mt. Bromo, Tumpak Sewu Falls and Kwah Ijen. First we visited Tumpak Sewu Falls. It was a great experience but be prepared that you will be completely wet at the end of the tour as you will climb and walk in the water and under the falls (have another set of clothes with you to change after the tour). Our driver Bagus then took us closer to Mt. Bromo where we stayed for the first night. During the three days Bagus told us a lot about Indonesia and its culture and I must say he was a great driver and guide. For Mt. Bromo sunrise we departed in the middle of the night from our hotel. The weather was misty and rainy at times but we still managed to see the sunrise. On the other hand, we did see blue fire in Kwah Ijen but since there was fog all around us we did not see the lake from the top of Ijen as it was a rainy season - if you can choose then take this tour in a dry season. Overall it was a great tour.

The tour was excellent organized and the driver was very kind and friendly and made sure that although the weather was not so pleasant that it was a remarkable experience. I got a chance to see mount bromo and the driver was speaking perfectly English which made me feel very comfortable and safe during the whole trip. I kind highly recommend this tour. It was really a beautiful and remarkable experience.

It was easy to install, just needed to scan the QRcode from the ticket. It worked well most of the time, with a good connection. Very good-value pricing.

An active trip that was well organized and efficiently supported by the knowledgable and friendly drivers and guides

Easy to sort out. Really helpful when travelling around Bali. Recommend.
