The guide has been accommodating so far. We enjoyed the trip overall and we definitely enjoyed the food. Just a few feed back in terms of trip. The guide should have told us in terms what time do we need to start climb Ijen. We thought we had ample time hence why we had our breakfast and went to the toilet before we started climbing – there were no urgency. We very much enjoyed our time in Ijen View – very nice hotel and very nice facilities – but we felt that the location was a bit far from Ijen. Just felt that it could be closer. Not a big problem.
Overall it was a fun trip! We enjoyed everything! And we want to thank all of you for making our time here memorable. We would like to recommend Galuh to any visitors coming your way. He was pleasant to be with and we were comfortable with him!!
