From the start, Maria was very efficiency in replying any emails and queries that my friends and I had and furthermore, she is very understanding and patience in asking all of our queries. When we reached Surabaya Airport, we were greeted by Maria and Alvin and started our tour. The food that served in the rest area that they brought us were very delicious and at the last day we were introduced to a dish call 'fried duck rice' which was very nice and unique. Be sure to ask them to take you the restaurant when you joined them on their tour next time!

The sunrise experience in Ijen and Bromo was one of a kind experience and it was definitely something worth sacrificing sleeping time and aching legs for. Also, the another great experience was during the waterfall trip where we get to see the natural waterfall and took many great pictures there.

Overall, my friends and I were happy and had fantastic 4d3n experience in Surabaya. The entire trip was not rushing at all as we already had enough time for all of our activities. Maria and Alvin were very professional and friendly.

I would strongly recommend anyone who wants to experience Surabaya with friends rather than tour guide to join Maria and Alvin tour! Definitely a 5 stars rating and experience for them!

We were very happy with the sunrise tour of Bromo. Maria was very helpful over email and tailored the trip to suit our tight schedule. We were picked up at Surabaya airport and took a car to Cemoro Lawang to stay the night. After a 3 AM wake up we took a jeep to the Bromo lookout point for sunrise before heading down to the sea of sand and walking up to the crater rim. It was a great experience and one we will never forget.

Fantastic tour, perfect organisation

Tour Joined: 3D2N Bromo-Ijen

From 15 to 17 September, we did a 3D 2N Bromo-Ijen Tour with Maria and Alvin.

Everything was perfect, from the communcation (via e-mail) beforehand to the drop off at the Ketapang harbour.

Maria responded very quickly to my (many) questions beforehand with clear information. Based on her responses alone, we were confident we made the right decision to book with them.

They picked us up at the Surabaya train station and from there a wonderful tour began.

Everything was perfectly organised (they let you take the time you want, but somehow manage to get everything done in time) and - as promised - there were no hidden costs.

During the many hours we spent together, we loved their food recommendations, their stories and background information about Indonesia, ...

They really are the perfect guides !

If we go back to Indonesia and want to do another tour, we would not hesitate to book with them again 🙂

Thanks again for the fantastic tour !

We did a 3D/2N trip to Bromo and Ijen with Maria and Alvin in June 2016. The trip was fantastic and absolutely delightful. Starting from Maria's professional planning and email communication to the actual trip together on Java and Bali where they dropped us off after the trip. We got a lot of insight about Indonesia. The car, the accommodation, just everything went really well. It was a fantastic experience and we feel lucky to have found them to spend a few days with such professional and lovely individuals. We would strongly recommend them to anyone planning trips on Java, Bali or other in parts of Indonesia. ?

BTW: Alvin is a great driver, we always felt very save on the busy streets of Java and Bali

Visiting Java was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever been lucky enough to experience and it was made all the more special thanks to Maria and Alvin. They were a fantastic team and made the tour really special with lots of little personal touches along the way.

Communication with Maria leading up to the tour was excellent, she was really helpful and flexible. She gave us lots of good advice to make sure that our trip was tailored just for us.

They took us to a range of different places to eat which gave us a real authentic feel (dont fall for eating the Dorian fruit!).

We really had such a fantastic few days with Maria and ALvin and couldnt recommend using them more highly.

We will never forget our wonderful trip. Thank you for everything xxx

We had a great tour during 5 days! From the first emails with Maria, we knew we contacted the right company. Good communication, very friendly, open for changes of the tour,...

Alvin was our guide and driver, we felt very comfortable and safe with him. Everything was really good organised with some local guides for the specific visite. We werd quite tierd at the end but it was worth it! We saw awesome things and locations. We really recomand this tour with these great people 🙂 you won't be dissapointed!

16 days Hidden Java
Country: Australia
Tour Joined: 16 days Hidden Java

Thank you Maria and Alvin. Our 16 day holiday was well organized and enjoyable . You handled the hick ups of a cancelled ferry and itinerary changes with out fuss , keeping it stress free. The only changes I would have made would be to hotel location in Yogyakarta . It would have been better to have stayed nearer the sites and restaurants.

We saw some fantastic sites and sunrises and enjoyed the culture. Your local knowledge took us to some great restaurants across Java

Wonderful experience

Alvin and Maria were so wonderful, warm, and experienced. The entire trip was very comfortable, the food was great, and everything was done without any hassle. Alvin and Maria also have very respectful and good working relationships with many other Indonesians we met on the tour, which was really great for us. We were able to cover a lot of ground and different experiences in a short amount of time. I highly recommend The Private Tour!

Dear all,

This company is highly recommended.

Communication was fast, efficient and nothing was a problem during the organisation. On the tour itself, it truly was a private tour where we could stop where we wanted, whenever we wanted and nothing was too much trouble. We had a super time.

Thanks Alvin and Maria for an awesome service and we wish you all the best.
