Ijen Crater is one of the most amazing volcanoes in East Java that you must visit when you are in Indonesia. Ijen Crater has an amazing with the huge sulfur lake which has 0,5 Ph of acidity. So it’s quite dangerous for visitors being close to the lake. So, the local people who work in this park are highly recommended us to not close or touching the water from the lake. But the view from the top of the crater is so amazing, especially when the sun rises from the eastern part of Ijen Crater. You will start the activity from Banyuwangi, the guide will pick you up from your hotel in Banyuwangi early in the morning

We spent 5 perfect days with our guide Faruq and professional driver Erpan. The organization from start to end was pricise and everything went as expected. We did the Bromo, Kalibaru, Sukamade, Ijen tour. Sukamade is a unique and must have to see place.

Our first time to Indonesia and We’re so glad that we joined their 3D2N tour to Bromo and Ijen! Thanks to Sofyan who is very responsive and answered our queries helpfully. Our guide, Arie, and our driver were always on time and took good care of us. Arie is a cheerful man and he took us to the best spots for taking pictures of Bromo at sunrise and blue flames at Ijen. We definitely had a great experience! Would love to join their other tours when we visit Indonesia again!

Amazing tour . Myself and my friends did the three day tour from malang to waterfalls, Bromo and ijen and were driven to Bali. The whole trip was very well organised and great value for money. Having Andre as our tour guide was brilliant , he organized everything for us and had lots of information about the places we went to. All of our drivers including Wendy were also great and very friendly . Would highly recommend the tour to anyone

A very well organised trip from the beginning until the end. To start the trip from Ubud requires a nearly 5 hours journey to reach mount Ijen, but the drivers and contact persons where on point every time - massive compliment. The trip up to the top and down to the mine allows you to what the workers there do every night - to see that was quite breathtaking and just unbelievable. Our guide Ahmad made an icredible job. He explained and presented everything very well and became more a friend than a guide during the trip. It was just fun with him. He took care very well of us. At every point he asked about our preferences and what we wanted to see - he made this trip an unforgetable experience. We can just recommend this trip to everybody who wants to experience the same. Many thanks for the memory and best regards to Ahmad from Sina and Fabian
