A Recent Review of this tour

We had an excellent day with Ajib, his English is very good and we had a good conversation about life in Indonesia, I feel I have a better understanding of life in a Muslim country now. The two places we visited were interesting and we got a lot of exercise hiking around the temples, I can now have two donuts in the morning.
