    Hey,

    i just booked the tour 3 days and 2 night for Bromo and the Ijen. I just pay the driver and that was fine. But in the evening they asked for 1 person 350,000 entree for the bromo. I thought okey so it was 700,000 for 2 persons but then I spoke to other people about it and the other tourguide and he sayd just 220,000 voor the bromo per person. So that means that we payd 130,000 more per person.. I don’t understand it and i think it is really not fair. But I can’t prove it so that is pitty! But I really wanna let you know.

    So I hope I can still have the money back for me and my travelmate.

    Kind regards,
    Anke Claessens

      Hi,

      You put the comment in the wrong article/post.
      You should put it in here:
      http://www.yogya-backpacker.com/transport-to-bromo/
      Anyway, i will reply your comment.

      What happened to you was happened to my friend too.
      She is Spanish and she booked the tour at Tourist Information Centre in Malioboro street.
      Then, what happened to her was quiet similar like your.
      But more worst, the driver get crazy and angry.
      Even threatened her and other traveler who didn’t want to pay.
      After she text me about what happened to her,
      i report that “case” to Tourist Information Centre in Malioboro.
      But, the officer just give some words without action or any solutions.
      It was out of their authority, since it was happened in other province.
      They can not do anything.
      Also, Bromo come under National park of Bromo, Tengger & Semeru.
      Managed by forestry department.
      It was not managed by Tourism department.
      So, they can not do anything to fix it.
      After that, i didn’t want to debate to the officer in Tourist Information Centre.

      Well, Indonesia is developing country.
      We still fighting to eliminate corruption and mafia in here.
      Those crimes is happened in whole structure, level and department in Indonesia.
      I hope you to be able to receive and understand what and why it was happened to you.
      As Indonesian and in the name of nation, please forgive us.
      I believe someday we can be better and be a great nations.

      Regards
