Gagat showed us during 2 days the very beautifull monuments in Yogyakarta region like the Borobudur at sunrise and the Prambanan. Also the Sultans Kraton, Waterpalace, village Candirejo and coffee plantation was visited. Gagat is very flexible as we arranged this custom made tour, 1 week upfront. We were very happy with Gagat knowledge, expertise and explanations. Also his kindness and attention on details was great!! Gagat thanks again for unforgettable days in Java!!
