Next, check out the Kota Intan Drawbridge, the last of its kind in Jakarta. It offers a glimpse into the stylish 17th-century residential neighborhood along the Ciliwung River. Then, head over to the Museum Bahari Jakarta in the historic Sunda Kelapa harbor. It showcases Indonesia’s maritime heritage with exhibits in 17th-century Dutch warehouses. You can enjoy panoramic harbor views from the museum's tower. Next, check out the Fatahillah Museum in the old town hall of Batavia. It's got maps, antiques, and porcelain that tell the story of Dutch rule in Indonesia. Just a heads-up: the museum is closed on Mondays and public holidays.

It was a very interesting day, learning about the history of Indonesia. I liked that way the Tour started at the beginning of time and worked through the ages. Seeing the puppets was fun, though we missed the show, it was good seeing how they were made. The museums were good, with well laid out displays (a lot of labels were in english) The old port (with working boats) were particularly good to see, plus the drawbridge and the Dutch buildings. Take some water with you as well, the guide did buy water, I found it wasn't quite enough. The guide and driver were excellent - and they were very accomodating. When I booked online, the website said I wasn't able to be picked up from the hotel, that was incorrect and I have fed that back to the company.

A lovely tour of old town, chinatown and the old harbour. Museums are very interesting. Wayang puppet museum was impressive, even if or because it was a one man show. Magical. There was an extra option for going around (20 minutes) in a little wooden motor boat out in the old harbour and with lookout to Java Sea. If you have the chance, go for it! We even saw iguanas/ big lizards.

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!

Sony was an excellent guide, with a good attitude, cheerful and attentive. Transportation was comfortable. We liked the restaurant they took us to for lunch.

Tour guide was polite and friendly but could have engaged with us more
