This Bromo-Ijen Photography Tour has got to be the most unforgettable trips of my life. I had an absolutely fabulous time, thanks to all the wonderful people who turned this dream trip into a reality. The attractions did not disappoint at all, but what really impressed me was the way Go Adventure went all out to make sure that we got what we came for. Raining heavily on the first evening of our arrival in Probolinggo? Planned sunset shot out of the question? No problem. Our efficient guide Fiqi brought us to a wooden hut in the middle of an onion field, introduced us to the two ladies living there. I was embarrassed at leaving wet shoe prints all over their floor. They not only offered their home as shelter from the storm, but allowed us to take photographs as well as posed for us. And then there were those uphill motorbike rides across the narrow, unpaved jungle trails to catch a Bromo sunrise from the top of a cliff; driving in a 4WD across an unending Sea of Sand surrounded by mountains and foothills from all sides, as well as walking in clear, ankle-deep water in a cavern to...

It’s also unlikely that the chance to sit with complete strangers round a coal stove on a cold, dark October evening lit only by stars from the Milky Way will come my way again.

A heartfelt thanks to everyone involved who went beyond their call of duty and displayed great professionalism and dedication to make this photo trip a very enjoyable, memorable and safe one for us.

Special mention goes to Fiqi who made all this possible and Antonio, who kept me focused and motivated throughout the hike up Ijen Crater with “Just 200 metres more to go. You can do it!”

My trip to Bromo and Ijen by Go Adventure was everything I could wish for and more. I would like to say a special thanks to our guide, Fiqi, who made this trip and experience possible. I had the time of my life. Not only did he make sure that we went to the less touristy spots to capture the stunning Bromo landscape at various times of the day, but the journey itself to the various places were first-time unique experiences to remember and cherish. In addition, it was great to get the chance to meet and interact with so many friendly and hospitable inhabitants in that area - something you don't get to do if you're in a tour bus. Fiqi's friendly disposition, his English skills, in-depth knowledge of the area and its people, his love for the job and commitment towards the enjoyment and safety of his clients, makes him a great guide for your adventure travel. A special mention also to our driver, Bambang, who was always punctual and reliable in making sure that we got to our destinations on time. My grateful thanks also goes to Antonio for his never-say-die attitude in motivating me to make... Read More

My grateful thanks also goes to Antonio for his never-say-die attitude in motivating me to make the 3 km hike up the Ijen Crater, down the rocky steps to see the Blue Flame and back up and down the volcano safely. “Don’t worry. You are in my home” was his frequent catchphrase to me.

I would definitely recommend Go Adventure if you want to experience something a little different and add a spark to your travels. Things are never the same again after you come home and you will view humanity from a new perspective.

Excellent service, knowledgeable, helpful and good photographer, he is our guide, Randy Highly recommended. We are a family with two young kids (aged 15 and 11) just came back from Lombok Island last week. Our main goal on this trip was hiking Mount Rinjani, 3726m second highest volcano mountain in Indonesia. Mount Rinjani is always in my wish list but I never really dare to plan it until Randy contacted me through messenger about 8 months ago. He used to be our tour guide when we were in Mt Ijen and Mt Bromo in Dec 2015. Randy is a very kind, patience guy and always answered my queries on time prior to the trip and make sure our safety and needs are taking care throughout entire trip. Truly appreciate and thank you for his good service and help. Not forgetful special thanks to Ipan (guide) and all the porters with us in Mount Rinjani trek. Without their guidance and care, we might not able to make it to the summit. This is the most difficult mountain that we had conquered so far. YESSSS..... we are proudly to say that we MAKE IT TO THE SUMMIT OF MOUNT RINJANI !!!! Lastly our heartfelt thanks... Read More

Excellent outfit, great guide up to Ijen and elsewhere around Banyuwangi & beyond. Highly recommended. These guys are serious. I've been traveling Indonesia for 40+ years and know the crack. Also you are not shafted price wise. Try a fly by night outfit and see for yourself. You would be much better off with guys like these.....a professional outfit....

It was brilliant! I was with a group of friends that went to the Ijen Crater and Mt Bromo tour. Our extraordinary guide was active, always in a friendly, caring and positive way. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The itinerary was well planned - a mark of a quality company. The pace of the tour and hotel choices could not be any better. I had a wonderful time and am happily recommending you to my friends.
