The tour itself, tour guide Ali and driver were so nice, just there’s a sudden campaign was held due to election, so the traffic was reeaaallly bad in Jakarta. However Ali and driver made an adaptable change to the schedule so that avoiding some time wasting in jam. Overall it was a great time-killing schedule to look around in Jakarta in an comfortable air-con van.

Well organized trip especially with the rain and of course the long holiday traffic, our guide Bryan and the driver were quick to make adjustments. He is friends with most of the locals there so we were well taken care off. We only walked around the hot spring, no one wanted to go in the pool you’ll see why.

There was lots of traffic due to a presidential rally and our team made sure we made it back to the ship on time. Great guide who was fluent in English. We had an enjoyable time!

My first guided tour. Guess I was very lucky, cause Vincent is an amazing guide, and the tour itself was very interesting and fun. I'm as happy as I can be.

It was a long but fun day. Our guide Jose and driver Mami did the best to allow us enjoying the trip.
