It was a rainy windy day but Kevin and Emmanuel brought their own sunshine. Emmanuel is very knowledgeable and an unbelievable resource. Kevin handles a 50 passenger bus like it was a mini van. The dynamic duo entertained and enlightened us all day. If the weather was nicer we would have ventured out more but we definitely got our moneys worth regardless. We’ll be back.

This trip was super exciting, Millie was not only knowledgeable about the places we visited but also passionate about what she was doing that made us enjoyed the tour with her. For Indonesian: BAGUS BGT TOUR nya!!!!

Emmanuel was our tour guide and the tour was AMAZING. 100% worth the money, a lovely day out, and good stops to sight-see in 4 out of 5 boroughs!
