Know More about this tour

You are brought to the most spectacular and world’s biggest Buddhist monument complex, Borobudur, built around 800 A.D. Looming out of a patchwork of bottle-green paddies and swaying palm tops, this colossal Buddhist relic is one of the continent’s marvels. After the decline of Buddhism and the shift of power to East Java, the monument was abandoned soon after its completion. For centuries the complex lay forgotten, buried under layers of volcanic ash.

Climb up to the top, level by level to appease all skill levels, and enjoy a wonderful view on the Menoreh Mountains. Enough time is given to stroll around the complex and to discover its beauty. Afterwards,we continue to visit the nearby located temples such as Pawon Temple and Mendut Temple. Drive to Prambanan village to visit the Prambanan Temple. The Hindu temple of the “slender virgin”, also known as a complex of Lorojongrang, was erected in the 9th century while Java was ruled by the Hindu Sanjayas of Old Mataram in the north.

It consists of three major temples and shrines in the main area dedicated to respected Hindu’s God Trinity such as Candi Shiva Mahadeva, Candi Brahma & Candi Vishnu. Enough time is given to walk around and observe the beautiful carvings and the neighborhood shrines such as the Candi Palosan and the Candi Sewu. The Ramayana story is carved into the walls of the temples.

  • Was great to see both a Muslim and Hindu monument. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The tour included everything we needed, included lots of water for a hot day outside. Visiting the palace was nice but could have excluded it and spent more time exploring the temples. Civet coffee experience was fascinating and a nice addition after a long day.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We got to see what we wanted and, with a great guide Eddy was able to appreciate the features and differences between the Buddhist and Hindi temples. Our only advice to visitors is to try to avoid summer weekends as you compete with local school and company excursions, which is the only dent in our tour!

    Even our off-package lunch near Prambanan was good choice by our guide. The driver was very good as well..

  • We arranged this on short notice, just three days ahead, yet the tour company was able to provide an experienced guide whose English was excellent. She proposed we first visit Prambanan Temple and the Sultan's Palace before lunch, which turned out to be smart, though on our own we'd have probably gone straight to Borobudur. But as it happened, she had saved the best for last - even though our earlier stops had been satisfying, visiting Borobudur has to have been one of the all-time wonderful things we've done. We also were taken to an excellent restaurant for lunch, and introduced to the obligatory craftsmen and shops along the way - high-quality wares being shown, though we didn't purchase anything. An excellent day, wonderful main guide plus two different local guides included, highly competent driver. No complaints!
