Batavia Jakarta, Jakarta 13450, Indonesia
We had booked the tour with Pari and Ronnie ( the two guides ) because we wanted to see how the 'real' Jakarta people live. Actually the vast majority of citizens in Jakarta live in poverty and we wanted to meet these people and talk to them about their lives.During the tour we quickly found out this is organised really well, Ronnie and Pari know the people in the neighbourhoods, and the people there actually also like to talk and ask a lot of questions about our lives. There was a lot of interaction and mutual understanding/discovery going on. We had a lot of fun and learnt to view Jakarta in a completely new light.The tour was personal and respectful, which of course is also something you are responsible for yourself. I will certainly recommend this to everyone and feel free to ask questions in the comments!
This was the best trip I ever had in my entire life! If you want to see the reality in any given city, the hotel-organized trips will never show you. So, I contacted Jakarta Hidden Tours and shortly after Ronnie came to pick us up at the hotel. We were using public transportation in Jakarta, and that was already the experience of a lifetime! Ronnie showed us the old city and then took us into areas where no tourist would dare to go alone! We visited places of extreme poverty and yet those who live there welcomed us with smile and sincerity. The trip lasted 7 hours and what we paid for was worth every penny! I must admit, coming to Jakarta I wasn't sure I was going to experience something like that, but thanks to Ronnie, his wife and volunteers, we had an experience of a lifetime! In short, if you're in Jakarta, and want to see the truth as it really is, contact Jakarta Hidden Tours! You will not be disappointed!!
Be brave and experience Jakarta the way it is truly lived there! Ronny showed us the highs and lows of this vibrant city, using just about all the modes of public transportation available. The visit to the slums was a sobering but necessary experience, and I am so grateful to the people who live there for allowing us to walk through their cramped living spaces. This day spent with Ronny was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Indonesia. We recommend it highly to anyone visiting jakarta.
