Jakarta Timur, Jakarta, Indonesia

Travelling, art and photography are always my great passion.

I therefore would like to share the fascinating friendliness, life style, entertainment, culinary and history of Jakarta to our guests. Jakarta is a fast growing multicultural city where a variety traditional and modern culture have flourished amazingly.

A Recent Review of this guide

Benny got in contact a few days before our tour to suggest an itinerary. He followed this but took the opportunity to show me areas which happened to have something special today. His local knowledge enabled us to visit areas I would never have gone to alone and I have a great collection of photos. I feel I have really seen Jakarta on the tour! Benny is able to talk about anything having had a varied career over the years. His car was comfortable and driving excellent. Thank you for a wonderful full day.
