I'm so excited! End of July we'll fly to indonesia and it will be awesome! (I hope)
I'm still planning things out for the trip (aka as procrastinating), so I was wondering whether anyone can recommend a tour operator that does tours to Mt Bromo (relatively flexible still from where, but I'm thinking Malang might be good)? I know there're a lot of offers on the internet, but I'd really like to go by recommendations for such a one-in-a-lifetime experience.
Hope to hear from you

Why do you need a tour to get there? Yo should be able to make your own way there without too much trouble. I did it fairly easily 18 years ago coming across from Bali so I'm sure you would be able to swing it now. I caught a public bus from Gilamanuk (Bali) to Probolingo, and from there, it was very easy to catch a bemo or minivan to the top of Bromo. Once you're up there - you can make your own way around the volcano or to the scenic platform.
Things could have dramatically changed of course - but if anything, I would imagine there are MORE options for doing it yourself rather than less.
A friend of mine recently visited and said 98% of people take tours, but there is no need. You can get up there yourself. Even if it means getting a car and driver to take you up for sunrise, it'd be better than being with a bunch of other people on a tour I think.
You're probably right about this, the question is only, where do I organize a car and a driver?
Especially at 3 am in the morning?

Aaah, I see. Are there towns you'd recommend for staying at?
