We were allocated an excellent guide ANTON from http://www.volcanotoursbanyuwangi.com Anton went out of his way to accommodate to our different needs. He definitely knew the area and could partial routes away from the masses of tourists. (It was also extremely enjoyable to be amongst the lovely lively good-humoured Indonesian tourists at 4am in the morning!) Seeing Bromo was magical. Thank you ANTON

The experience was amazing! Worth the early start. Colder than we thought before sunrise, around 8 deg C so bring hat and layers. Our driver Bagus was great, good local knowledge, told us the best spot to stand for sunrise, comfortable journey and he made it such an amazing day out. Also to mention he takes amazing photos!

It was a once in a lifetime experience watching natural beauty and nature in harmony amidst luscious surroundings. Our guide was very attentive and flexible. He was also a great photographer. Would highly recommend.

Great trip, the various drivers and guides that I could have been super friendly, we laughed a lot. The scenery and the view are just magnificent, it's something to do once in your life.

Our guide, Fahmi was excellent! Very personable and knowledgeable about the areas we were visiting. It was a pleasure spending 3 days with him. Thank you! -Ashlyn & Ginter
