Fascinating eastern Java

This is an example of a roundtrip along the highlights in and around Yogyakarta as well as the major highlights of eastern Java. Of course you can completely customize the trip to your own requirements. You can omit certain parts and/or add other components. If desired I’m pleased to help you with this. This also applies to the accommodations. You can arrange this yourself, but if you prefer it, I’m also pleased to arrange this for you. The choice is entirely yours.
