Mount Bromo

Mount Bromo (Indonesian: Gunung Bromo), is an active volcano and part of the Tengger massif, in East Java, Indonesia. At 2,329 metres (7,641 ft) it is not the highest peak of the massif, but is the most well known. The massif area is one of the most visited tourist attractions in East Java, Indonesia. The volcano belongs to the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The name of Bromo derived from Javanese pronunciation of Brahma, the Hindu creator god. (Wikipedia)

Mount Ijen

The Ijen volcano complex is a group of composite volcanoes in the Banyuwangi Regency of East Java, Indonesia.
It is inside a larger caldera Ijen, which is about 20 kilometres wide. The Gunung Merapi stratovolcano is the highest point of that complex. The name “Gunung Merapi” means “mountain of fire” in the Indonesian language (api being “fire”); Mount Merapi in central Java and Marapi in Sumatra have the same etymology. (Wikipedia)

    Elizabeth Tan

    I went on the tour on the 1st -3rd April. I find this a very fast and convenient way to visit the 2 volcanoes. The drawback was that I had to pay for the entrance tickets and I find it difficult to be able to money exchangers along the way.

    Nonetheless, the price is competitive and is definitely sufficient for a weekend trip.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5

    Gabriel Lim

    We went on this trip over last weekend. We weren’t able to get an accommodation because it was a long weekend but Alex planned and upgraded us to a relatively nice hotel in Surabaya. Even though, it was different from our plan , we appreciate the added service that the company gave to us so we can continue the journey.

    Will recommend the tour to my friends.

    Ryan Teo

    I find the prices on this website very competitive. However, I feel the homestay option could be improved. I was wondering if there is somewhere in between the resort and the homestay option.

    Racheal

    Went on this trip ion 14th-16th May 2017. It is pretty good and I really enjoyed the trip. The homestay wasn’t very ideal but is bearable if you have the expectation of travelling to a village.

    It wasn’t a very tiring trip. Ideal for friends and backpacking.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    Melinda

    The agent (& Alex): At the start we were a little hesitate with online agent to Bromo as many of them may be fake but once I read the reviews & blog with the help of Alex’s efficient services in answering my queries, it certainly helped us decide if we should go ahead. No regrets.

    The trip: 03-05 January 2018.

    The driver: Mr Richard was really nice; helpful & his English is really great.

    The hotel: We stayed at Bromo Terrace Hotel and El Royale Hotel. The hotels were great but you only stay for few hours as the tours start very early in the morning.
    Feedback for El Royale Hotel~ The hotel is new and they are still building another wing so make sure to request a room that is far from the construction sites because the construction goes till 10pm and you can hear them banging & drilling. When you need to sleep for an early start, banging & drilling is just silly.

    Tour start & finish time: Bromo ~ Be prepared to start very early in the morning (12-1am start).

    Driving time: Surabaya Airport to Bromo is about 3-4 hours. From Bromo to Banyuwangi (Ijen) is approximately 6-7 hours.

    The physical rating: Bromo is easy (with 240 stairs to go to the top), but make sure you are fit to do a steep hike for 3km to Ijen, these sites are AMAZING!

    Recommendation: If you have some spare $$, book a flight back from Banyuwangi to Surabaya. The flight only takes about 50mins, compare to if you drive back to Surabaya which is about 9 hours. You may not want to sit in the car for 9 hours, after 12am start & steep 3km hike to Ijen on the same day.
