This is a long day trip out of Jakarta but well worth it. Our guide Thomas was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the entire trip. Our driver Dona also did an excellent job of navigating both the highways and mountain roads. We had a perfect day at the volcano and an overall great trip. My wife and I booked this as a private tour and had no worries about COVID, as both our driver and guide maintained all of the protocols required while showing us the sites. I highly recommend them.
