A Recent Review of this tour

Out of all the tour guides we had along our trip in Indonesia, Gagat was by far the best. With his knowledge of the temples and the city, as well as his friendliness, he really made the experience worthwhile. His English is also great, which really helped us understand the culture and history of the different things we saw. Definitely recommend Gagat's tour to anyone who wants to see Yogyakarta's beautiful sites! :)
