I am an official tour guide licensed and certified by the Jakarta Capital City Governance of Tourism for more than five years. I graduated from university with major international relations.
I love traveling, cooking, and I like to meet with new people from all over the world. I like to learn and know more about the world from my travelers, and I love to introduce my country of Indonesia to the world through my job.
I am originally from Banten, but I have been living in Jakarta for more than 12 years. And Jakarta has already become my home. This city symbolizes the Indonesian motto, bhinneka tunggal Ika, "unity in diversity". This city is multi cultural, with people coming from different back grounds and ethnic groups, religion, traditions, but we are part of Indonesia, and the most important, we all respect each other. in addition to the people, in my city also we have a lot of things to share. On the north coast of Jakarta we have 110 small islands, we called that part "thousand islands administrative area" where you can find a lot of beautiful beaches. And inside the city of Jakarta, you can find a lot of things as well. The centre of Jakarta symbolizes the modernity of Jakarta with the high buildings. And the north part of Jakarta symbolizes the old past of Jakarta with the dutch colonial buildings. And, there are also a lot of museums in this city. You will love this city.
From all of this, I want my travelers to have a wonderful impression about Jakarta,
Indonesia. For the nature, the people, the culture, the tradition, the way of life and more of Indonesia. And I like to make travelers feel special when they come here, so they can feel composed, comfortable, and be part of Indonesia.
So if you have plan to visit Indonesia, especially Jakarta, don't hesitate to contact me. Whether it be for a business trip, conference, special interest of tour, one day tour, java Bali overland, and more, I'm ready to be your guide and companion, and give my best service as a tour guide for you.
A Recent Review of this guide
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour today, Ratih and the driver were very pleasant, polite and experienced. The SUV was roomy and comfortable. Ratih was very accommodating to our interests, being from Hawaii we wanted to see where Obama went to school and the area he used to live. We also wanted to see the Java Man at the National Museum as well as spent some time in Chinatown, Ratih made it all possible despite the rain and the usual traffic jams on the road. Thank you Ratih!
