Full description
Explore the city with a friendly local who is passionate about his/ her city and eager to share all the tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighborhood, find out about the best places to eat and buy groceries, the easiest ways to get around and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel more comfortable in navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Once your booking is received, the local tour operator will get in touch with you to confirm all the details for the tour such as the meeting place and time, language and your contact information and also to ask you some questions to get to know you better. Then, the right local will be handpicked for you based on your interests. Each tour will be completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer (minimum: 2-hours). During the walking tour, you will have the option of taking public transportation or taxi to get around the city (at your expense). The local guides are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travelers and share what they love about their city. They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city. Through conversations with your local guide, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in the city, learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.

A very nice young woman showed me her city. Of course, two hours is far too short, but the goal of getting a first impression of a very lively city was still achieved. The round we did was excellent for immersing yourself in the city's attitude towards life. I would not have been able to do this alone. I highly recommend it!

It was fantastic to meet Cecelia. We had a really interesting time and she took me to the real Jakarta that the normal tourist tours would not cover. She was very interesting and great fun to spend time with. I would recommend this type of afternoon to anyone who has a few spare hours to kill whilst in the city.
