Amazing 8 hours in Jakarta

I thoroughly enjoyed my walking tour of Jakarta with Vera. I was able to carve out 8 hours to see the City and she filled it full of authentic experiences. We explored several open markets, sampled street food and fruits I have never seen before, the Museum Bank of Indonesia, Jakarta Old Town Square, the Grand Mosque, Catholic Cathedral and National Monument Park. Vera took the time to answer my many questions and also provided details I couldn't have anticipated about Indonesia's history, hybrid culture and religions. Vera personified the vibe I got from Indonesia; friendly, open minded, hardworking and culturally cosmopolitan.

Awesome Tour

Had a great time on our food tour at China town. Vera was great with both my my elderly mom at 74 and youngest son at 5! We had a blast and we enjoy every moment of it. Food was great, chat and sharing was fantastic. Is a must try guys!

Aussie Guests

Vera took my family for two half day guided tours of Jakarta, to help us get to know interesting aspects of our new home. She did a wonderful job and the tours were really interesting for our whole group, and lots of fun too. Vera was incredibly thoughtful and even bought special gifts for my kids which was a lovely gesture. We'll definitely arrange another tour with Vera again when we have visitors to Jakarta.

Visting Professor from USA

I was in Jakarta as a visiting professor. I was new to the city and as a female traveling alone it was great to find this tour group. Vera was awesome in exploring Jakarta with me and I have so many wonderful pictures and information to take back to my students. She geared the entire day toward my interests. Vera knows the city, has great stories and information, and is just an awesome and fun person. She is willing to reach out to others thoughout your walk; indeed we ran into another USA researcher during our walks and ended up having coffee together and chatting. She has a set tour as we saw mosque, cathedral etc., but it is such that you can take advantage of what happens to be in the city on the day of your walk. At the National Monument we stopped to watch the practing for the Independence holiday and stopped for a marching band. Thank you Vera for a wonderful and fun experience of the people and places in Jakarta.

Vera is great!

Vera is a wonderful tour guide. I had one of my friends come and visit me from the U.S., and even though I live in Jakarta she took us to many sights I had not heard of. I highly recommend these tours.

Martabak, martabak, martabak!

Remember that word. What is it you ask? It is a concoction of pure deliciousness that you can customize to your liking (sweet, savory, or somewhere in between). Had we not gone on the food tour with Vera, we never would have discovered this pancake/cake/heavenly treat, as well as numerous other goodies to eat.
My husband and I had never been to Indonesia, and we are so so happy that we decided to do this tour with Vera. We arrived just when the holy month of Ramadan was just starting, so nobody was eating anything during the day (fasting). We did the cultural part of the tour, visiting the gigantic mosque and other local parks/neighborhoods, during the day. At night is when the fun truly began, because that's when everyone came out to eat!
Walking along the narrow sidewalks, uncountable motorcycles zipping by, smelling all the different food vendors wares - it was quite an experience. We sampled meatballs, soups, sesame-coated sweets, beef and chicken satay (meat on a stick), vegetables in peanut sauce, fruits we had never seen before, and of course the martabak. We loved the martabak so much we are actually in the process of trying to track down an Indonesian cook who lives in our city so that he can make the martabak for us!
We did a 3-island trip of Indonesia, and Jakarta was our first stop. Overall, the tour was great and I don't have anything negative to say about it. I couldn't imagine experiencing Indonesia without this tour, because it really set the tone for the rest of the trip and was a great introduction to Indonesian culture. As others have said, go hungry and don't be afraid to try something whose name you can't pronounce - you won't regret it! Vera will answer any question you have about the culture and the food, and will customize the experience for you based on your preferences so that you will not be disappointed. Absolutely recommended.

A charming guide to a major urban landscape

Vera is a skilled and charming courier with whom to visit Jakarta. The tour is well-paced, and Vera is quick to adapt to the challenges which Jakarta presents: congested traffic and demonstrations, for example! She pays attention to Indonesia's history, which is enlightening, and provides a context for the places visited. It must be said that Jakarta does not have a lot of historical monuments but they are now working to make what exists more available and better presented to tourists. That said, Vera is probably the best and most enjoyable companion with whom to see Jakarta and learn about its colonial and recent history.

We spent the day with Vera walking through the real Jakarta and it was amazing!

Excellent Tour and guide definitely worth it

I went on both a City tour (Vera was our tour guide) and a food tour (Eti was the guide).  I enjoyed both tours very much.  Both guides were kind enough to modify the tour(s) to accommodate our interests.  I also really appreciated the excellent communication that occurred between Tahu and myself before the tour.  Each email was quickly responded to.

My friend and her son really enjoyed Vera and the city walking tour; especially meeting the puppet master. On the food tour Eti was very knowledgeable and encouraged us to try things we might not have tried. I DEFINITELY recommend this company to anyone who wants to take a tour of Jakarta with a friendly, knowledgeable guide. Thanks again!

Heartfelt Experience

If you're looking for an honest & heartfelt JKT experience, do not hesitate to engage Vera's services. I brought home with me memories of taking the Commuter Train with the locals, savouring that humble yet mouth-watering Pempek dish in Chinatown, time travelling to the Dutch banking era & even boarding a TransJakarta bus packed like sardines. Vera was not just informative but sincere & helpful in more ways than one.
