A Recent Review of this tour

Ratih was prompt and a great guide for our Bogor Countryside Tour. She provided lots of interesting g information without being overbearing. She was always friendly, helpful, and flexible. We were stuck with a very rainy day for our tour but Ratih maintained a positive attitude throughout the day that helped us have a great time nonetheless.
