Hello, my name is Tinton Arya Sasmita. I am a local resident and able to speak English well. I have experience for more than 2 years in this field. It will be my pleasure to give you unforgettable experiences. I’d like to invite you to see the wonderful sunrise of Borobudur Temple, the biggest Buddhist Temple in the world.

I happened to be in Indonesia for work, during covid times. I was lucky enough to find Tinton experience on Airbnb. He was very friendly, knew a lot of history and the curious facts of all the places we visited. Some of the places were closed, so he proposed additional activities we could do, which made even more special. He knew the area very well, and I always felt safe. He even made me try coffee although I don't drink it, haha but again it was one if a lifetime experience. Although we could not see the sunrise in the temple, he told me from the beginning and suggested other options. I highly recommend Tinton for your travels in Yogyakarta, he will always make you laugh, will have a story to tell, and he is open to improvising, which for me was a big plus!

The day began at 3.30 and Tinton was already waiting for us at our hotel. We made it to Borobudur for sunrise, got to try civet cat coffee while hearing Tinton's fascinating stories about its history, and then were given a free choice of activity for the rest of the morning (we chose the Merapi volcano). Tinton then brought us to a fantastic nasi campur place which had so many Javanese classics. All in all, fantastic morning. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to hit two birds with one stone by combining multiple out-station stops in a half-day programme.

Tinton is a nice guy who will make sure to drive you around and give you nice tips. However if you expect a more personalized experience and want to know more about the sights he will take you to, make sure to get a guide (extra cost) that can share with you some interesting information about the spots you will visit!

We had a great time with Tinton! He was knowledgeable and professional, and picked us up right on time. The 3:30 am departure may seem early but it’s worth it to see the sunrise at Borobudur temple. It’s simply magical! And he made sure we had the perfect spot to take great photos. He is also flexible after the temple visit. He will give you some great options. We recommend the waterfall!

At first I was a bit hesitant because of the price but the entrance fee alone for the temple is 50CDN $. After the temple and coffee tour he took us to kedungkayang waterfall which was amazing!! Overall I had an amazing experience and i learned a lot about Indonesian culture. Tinton is super knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Don’t hesitate just book your tour :)

Had a great experience going on the Borobudur tour with Tinton’s partner Wahyu! After the sunrise at Borobudur, made some batik, went for coffee, visited an old lady who makes palm sugar and went to the Prambanan temple afterwards, as we could pick what we did after Borobudur! Highly recommend this private tour to anyone.
