I spent a weekend in Borobudur in the very capable and accommodating hands of Mr, Wiedy Antara and They were very professional, exact and helpful. Brought us to the touristic sites and along the way We had to do it in one day and wished we could have followed the advice in the tour books to go early to avoid both the midday heat and crowds. You have to climb up about ten levels to reach the top. There are so many impressive carvings along the way that make the climb in scorching midday heat and humidity more tolerable.
This is the most impressive sight in Java. We fascinated to learn that the temple is almost exactly in the centre of Java and wondered how anyone could have figured out that location so long ago without divine guidance. Our ship arranged for 7 large tours buses complete with a Police escort to ensure we could make the best of notoriously dense traffic. This was the most popular tour on our cruise. Chasing behind a speeding Police Car in a huge tours bus is a lot more fun that being chased by one.
I contacted Wiedy Antara after checking out all the good reviews of him. On the day of our arrival, his employee, Mr Budi picked us up at the cruise port in Semarang and send us to Borobudur in a private MPV.
Budi is a humorous guide and he really knows Borobudur very well as he lives a stone's throw away from the temple! He also know all the best spots to take great pictures. My family thoroughly enjoyed this trip! We contacted Wiedy due to the reviews we came across on Tripadvisor.
And when we met him, we were at ease. He was prompt in his reply and we manage to book a tour with him for the very next afternoon. He was forthcoming and shared his views for not suggesting the sunset or a visit to Merapi simply because the weather was cloudy. We went and returned.
