Booking by emailing was very easy, prompt reply from Li, answering all the questions very well. Met our guide Rahman on the airport on D1, best tour guide ever. Passionate about his job, polite, wonderful knowledge of the attractions (and the best photo taking spots), and seriously one of the best photographers. Ijen on D1, then Bromo sunrise and hike up Bromo and then Madakaripura waterfalls before heading to Surabaya. Well planned, we had a wonderful time and will always remember this wonderful trip!

Explorindo was recommended by a friend who had been on the same tour and had good reviews about it. The trip was well planned, and our guide rahman was awesome.

The car was comfortable for me to take restful naps during the long journeys from place to place and the driver was very kind to start up the engine/ aircon in the car a few mins ahead of time so that we would not feel too hot in the car.

Our guide rahman was the best! He spoke fluent english and was well versed in the history and geography of the places we visited. He knew all the best photo taking spots and he himself has a hidden talent for photography (he takes great panoramas). He was even directing the driver where to stop the car so that we could get great photos with the jeep and scenery in the background.

We stayed in ketapang indah hotel (ijen) and bromo terrace hotel (bromo), and we were pleasantly surprised by the good service and clean facilities.

I would definitely recommend this tour agency if you are planning a trip to ijen/bromo!

We took a 1D/1N tour to Kawah Ijen. The place is awesome and the blue fires too. However, the company should notice people that is a hard activity. The descend to the crater is really exhausting (add the cold, the gas mask, the lack of sleep and the previous hike up to the crater). We even saw people who had to lay down during the descent. It's a great activity and we really enjoyed it, but I would improve the comunication.

Really enjoyed our trip to Mt Ijen and Mt Bromo organised through Explorindo Ijenesia. Booking process via email was easy and always responsive to our questions and requests. Our guide Rahman and the driver met us at Surabaya airport and they were always helpful as well as insightful throughout the trip.

Definitely recommend to use this company for any trips in this region.

I chose Explorindo Ijenesia based on great reviews in Tripadvisor and indeed it has lived up to its reputation.

We took a 4d3n package. Apart from Mt Ijen and Bromo, our itinerary included sunrise at Papuma Beach, white water rafting and a visit to the zoo.

Booking was easy, Li was quick to respond to my requests and enquiries. There were no hidden charges. Our guide Rahman was very helpful esp going down the difficult terrain in Ijen. He's a very good photographer too. Chendy was a good driver and we felt safe during the long car rides.

The itinerary was very well planned and everything went smoothly. Although tired from all the hiking and long journey, we truly enjoyed ourselves.
