Surabaya Heritage Trail tours are free tours run by the local Surabaya City Government, who created the tour as a means to highlight and educate visitors regarding Surabaya's history and architecture and "cultural reserves". The tours start outside House of Samporna and are usually full so you might need to book a few hours ahead. Several different tours are offered. Some focus on "Surabaya - The Heroes City" (including a visit to the Heroes Monument), others on "Surabaya - The Trading City" (with stops at Hok Ang Kiong Temple and Escompto Bank). Another explores "Surabaya during The Dutch Occupation" (Kebonrojo Post Office - Kepanjen Church - Ex. De Javasche Bank). Longer versions of each tour are run on the weekend. As we visited in February, just after the Chinese New Year, our tour was a special "Lunar tour" featuring "Pagodas of Surabaya" and around Surabaya's Chinatown. We visited two temples: Klenteng Boen Bio - an incredibly old temple intricately wrapped up in Surabaya's local Chinese community's history, dedicated to Confucius - and Hok An Kiong Chinese Temple (Klenteng Jalan Coklat), the oldest Chinese Temple in Surabaya. We enjoyed the tour and would definitely try another one on a return trip to Surabaya :)
