An orientation drive through the historical sections of Semarang begins this truly pleasant day of touring. Ride a nostalgic steam train though charming scenery and visit a coffee plantation where you’ll be treated to a traditional buffet style lunch.
Leaving the city behind, you'll head through the lush tropical landscape of rural central Java as you make your way to Ambarawa Village, home of the Ambarawa Railway Museum and where you will board your antique steam train. Before getting underway, you’ll visit the train museum which is set around the grounds of the old railway station. Here, you'll find a substantial collection of well-restored classic locomotives, with the oldest dating back to 1891.
Boarding an original passenger coach complete with vintage wooden benches, your picturesque train journey begins. From either side of your train car, you'll enjoy scenic vistas of tiny villages, rice paddies and small creeks, all set against the backdrop of Java's green hills and majestic mountains. At the Tuntang Village station, your train will reverse direction and travel back to Ambarawa Village where you'll rejoin your coach for the drive to a local coffee plantation.
Arriving at the plantation which has been modernized to accommodate tourists, you'll have an opportunity to see Javanese coffee plants with beans at different stages of ripening. Your hosts at the plantation are happy to share with you their knowledge of coffee and the process of how the beans are grown and made into the final coffee product. A buffet lunch will be served along with the opportunity to try a cup of freshly brewed coffee before it's time to board your coach for the relaxing drive back to the pier.
