Very nice and interesting Tour. Small enthusiastic female guide whose name unfortunately we no longer know. The driver was also great ... managed to steer us through heavy traffic. She also knew a good restaurant for lunch. We find this tour a must for those who want to see Jakarta. Highlights were old China, the national museum and the historical museum.

Good but 4h instead of 7h the museums being closed

Very attentive and pleasant driver and guide. However, there was no real alternative to replace the closed museums.

An excellent tour. I was picked up on time and the guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Thank you!
