I took a Holland America cruise Volendam and it stopped at Semarang for the day. A group of us i. Our "private tour" was cheaper, and in my opinion better than any tour that the ship sold. If you are doing a day trip to Borobudur off a cruise ship, two pieces of advice: 1 don't try it on your own, and 2 don't do it without a police escort. Due to the traffic having the police escort was invaluable. Our van was able to use both sides and the middle for that matter of the road and went right through the traffic lights - no matter the color.
With the police escort we made the usual 3 hour trip in just under 2 hours each way. The ship used a police escort for their busses too. The van that they used was very comfortable and actually had 18 or 19 seats, i. Also, the tour guide was very good. The Borobudur Temple is all that it is cracked up to be. Maybe it is not one of the "One of the Seven Wonders of the World"; however, it is just as impressive as some of the actual "7 Wonders" etc.
You can climb on the temple there's lots of steps ; which wouldn't be considered "handicapped accessible". To visit this big temple needs more than 2 hours if you want to see and experience all carvings and inscription. During day time the temperature quite warm so it is recommended to bring your hat or umbrella.
Make sure to visit in the early morning so that you can experience the mesmerising sunrise! A good idea is to stay in the adjoining hotel Manohara resort with an own entrance to the Borobudur complex.
Went there april 4, from yogyakarta using the local bus 2A to Jombor bus station,then a local bus to borobudur bus station, walked about 2 blocks to the entrance. Very easy access. No AC on the local bus to borobudur, but was cool enough with the windows opened. Arrived at am, decided to have an early lunch before entering the site and bought water. AC in the entry building with clean rest room.
