FAQ

Yes. We can customise the itinerary if you wish to add or remove any attractions in our pre-made itinerary. You can also inform our guide on the day of your tour if you decide not to visit a certain attraction.

A passport with a minimum of 6 months validity and travel insurance are a must. For other essentials, we will send you a packing list after you book your tour with us. 

The nearest international airport to Mount Bromo is Juanda International Airport in Surabaya. You can also start the tour from Bali or Yogyakarta.

A 2-way airport transfer service is included in all our tour packages. On Day 1, we will pick you up at Surabaya airport at your arrival time. If you are already in Surabaya, we will pick you up at your hotel at 9am instead. On the last day, we will drop you off at the airport.

Yes. You can request for the optional Milky Way tour. We’ll pick you up at 10pm from your lodge to Cemoro Lawang. You will then head to nearby peaks such as Mount Penanjakan, Mentigen Hill, Kingkong Hill or Seruni Point and the Sea of Sand where you can view the Milky Way. Avid photographers should bring suitable camera equipment as well. You would then continue with the standard itinerary to view the sunrise at Mount Bromo. This will cost an additional of SGD 50/pax, on top of your current tour package.

Entrance fees have various pricing for locals, foreigner and peak periods. It also gives you more flexibility as you can choose not to go to the attraction when you are on the tour and reduces the hassle for refund afterwards.

A round trip costs around 200,000 – 250,000 IDR (from the Sea of Sand to the rim of Bromo crater and back). Do note that the horse ride ends near the start of the stairs to the Mount Bromo crater. You will still have to climb about 250 flight of stairs up to the crater. The horse ride is entirely optional and you can choose to walk across the sea of sand, which most visitors do. Do negotiate with the horsemen to get a better deal.

Generally, our tours are all inclusive except for entrance fees, lunch and dinner during the tour.

For lunch and dinner expenses, you can budget it at around 70,000 IDR/meal (about SGD 6). However, this amount greatly depends on what you order and where you dine.

No. Mount Bromo is very dark and cold in the night. We do not allow our customers to hike solely on foot for safety concerns, unless you’ve reached the entrance of the sunrise viewpoint. 

Sunglasses and sunblock lotion are highly recommended – the sun rays can be harsh and at high altitude, it is easy to get sunburnt even though the surrounding temperature is cold. The terrain is very sandy – wearing a face mask is also recommended for protection (akin to walking in a desert). If you are visiting the waterfalls, please bring along wet gears such as swim suits with t-shirt and shorts, water booties/covered sandals, spectacle hooks, waterproof cover for your phone/camera which can be secured to your body, change of clothes and towel.

Our vehicle will first drop you at the parking lot of Madakaripura Waterfalls, where you will hop to a motorbike (Ojek) for a short 5 minutes ride to the entrance. Then, you need to do a trek of around 30 minutes (2km) to reach the waterfalls.

Swimming is no longer allowed at the waterfalls since 2018 but you will still get drenched. For footwear, we highly recommend covered rubber shoes or sandals.
