    Great tour, really good seeing some of the lesser known temples. This is a LONG day however with many hours travelling in the car. We felt it was worth it. But just be aware of that.

    One of the BEST tours. The tour guide and driver is amazing. The 2 temples are yet fully 'discovered' by tourist and we really get to enjoy the temple and the views. Ride to the temple was amazing......do note both temples were on top of the mountains. We drove by tea plantations and it was very very scenic and fresh air. A MUST visit if you are intending to visit Yogyakarta.
