This one day tour will take you on a journey to some of the beauty of East Java close to Surabaya, including Purwodadi Botanical Gardens, Wonosari Tea Plantation, Taman Safari open zoo, Kaliandra Sejati Foundation, Candi Jawi temple, a scenic drive through terraced rice paddies in the foothills of Mount Penanggunang, and Candi Jolotundo Hindu baths.

Our tours are led by me, an English-speaking expat, who has a thorough knowledge of Java and Madura, having lived in Indonesia for 25 years, and my co-organizer, Samsul, who comes from East Java. With our outstanding network of local contacts we really know Java. I have written numerous articles on Indonesia for magazines, both in Indonesia and internationally. I was a contributor to the most recent edition of the Rough Guide to Indonesia, and my photographs of Indonesia have been published in a variety of magazines. The tours take you to the real Java beyond the obvious tourist spots providing an opportunity for you to explore at first hand the local culture and the hidden beauty of Java.
