Great way to see and explore the temples round Jogja! Driver Andi was fantastic and got a great spot at the top of the hill to watch Borobudur emerge from the mist at sunrise. Car was a good 4x4 suitable for some of the bumpier roads. Clear and easy communication on the day and beforehand. Special thanks for Seek Sophie and Mega for double checking all post-Covid tour changes/accessibility of the temples and for coordinating with Ayla Tours. Would definitely recommend and use Seek Sophie again for future trips!
