Come admire a stunning sunrise and a beautiful sunset in a private tour!

Are you curious to see how beautiful the sunrise looks from the inside of the biggest Buddhist temple in the world and how exotic the sunset looks from the highest Hindu temple in Indonesia? This private tour will show you just that.

Your tour will start at the crack of dawn but it will truly be an unforgettable experience. After visiting Borobudur for the sunrise, we will continue our journey to Mendut Temple, and Ulensentalu Museum - The best Museum in Indonesia about tradition and history. Then we will visit Plaosan Temple, the twin temple that is surrounded by rice fields and was a gift for the marriage of Hindu and Buddhist Dynasty.

We will spend the rest of the day in Prambanan and Sewu temples. Prambanan is the most beautiful Hindu temple in South Asia. We will see a stunning view of the sunset in this temple and come back to the hotel at around 17. 30.

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour covered a lot of ground and it definitely helped to have an extraordinary team leading the way. Every detail was so well thought out and planned. I was never wondering what to do, The settings of the temples at sunrise and sunset were magical and it was even more enriching to gain the rich knowledge of tour guide Didot. He was so passionate about his country and it really showed. I love the market stop, lunch and ability to customize the day somewhat to my interests. Highly recommended!
