I arranged a tour to fly into Malang. Pepe's driver picked us up the next morning and we drove toward Mt. Bromo. We stopped at the Madakaripuri waterfalls for a short hike. It was huge and we got soaked. It was so much fun. Our driver gave us a plastic cover to walk through the wall of water and then we dropped to our swim suits to play in the water and take photos. Then we drove to stay at the Jiwi Jawa near Mt. Bromo. We got up at 3am to go see the sunrise then hike the crater. It was great. A must see in Indonesia. After breakfast back at the hotel we drove 7 hours to a hotel near Banguwangi - the Jiwi Jawa Ijen. The next morning (middle of the night) we were picked up at 1am and set out to hike up to Mt. Ijen to see the blue fire and the sulphur miners. The hike was 14km total and it was all worth it! Pepe had local guides for each volcano area and they were both excellent. Our driver didn't speak great English but it was ok for us to get around. Pepe was really attentive, flexible, and helpful. I would highly recommend his company. We flew to Malang on a Monday, started our tour Tuesday am and flew back to Jakarta on the Friday - so 4 nights and 5 days. It was tiring but doable. Lots of driving between places so hard to squeeze too tight together. It is possible to do in two different weekends if you are close.

My boyfriend and I booked a tour with Rouf to Mount Ijen and we totally enjoyed this trip! Rouf was a great guide who accompanied us even down the crater, showed us the best paths and ways to go and helped us to take awesome pictures of the blue flames. He was also able to answer all of our questions in good English and we really enjoyed our trip!
