Our tour (Borobudur) with Gagat was great. Communication was very good prior to tour. Gagat and his driver met us at the terminal. Clean car, plenty water on board. Very good English. The long drive was made interesting with a short stop in Semarang and a Lovely, tasty Indonesian lunch before we reached our goal. Thanks to Gagat's planning, we avoided the bus crowd and had a very interesting and informative tour. Great, calm driver safely navigated through chaotic traffic. Thanks for a wonderful day!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catharina, Arnold and Joseph. It has been a great day for me too, to have you as my dear honored guests. I hope you stay happy and healthy always. Thank you, again

This was amount the best "Tours By Locals" guides ive ever had. Such a well-informed, pleasant, and enthusiastic guide. Gagat met me precisely on time, made me feel welcomed, and introduced me to our amazing driver. The entire day was spent in delightful conversation and by the end of the tour I felt as though I'd made a real friend. Thank you, Gagat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for choosing me to be your guide, Glenn. I cherish our time: on journey from Semarang Port to Borobudur vice versa; sharing about beliefs when we were at Borobudur Temple; enjoying the lunch at Sekar Kedhaton... and all the moments in between. I look forward to welcoming you and your wife in your next visit to the wonderful Indonesia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the appreciation, Paul. Stay healthy!

Gagat was very knowledge able about the temple and Buddhist religion. He was fun and thoughtful. He had great music for us to listen to and also provided wifi in the car! He went out of his way to make us comfortable. He even gave me one of his avocados to take back on the ship and treated us to delicious fried casava (sp). He varied our route back to the ship to make the drive more interesting. I can not recommend him enough
All four of us really enjoyed the tour to Borobudur with Gagat. He took extra time to help us buy local fruit and coffee. He introduced us to salak, a fruit we had never before tasted. That always enriches our experience. I have one suggestion: it would have been helpful if Gagat had provided us some written information, maybe a pamphlet, so that we could have read about Borobudur on the long drive there. It would also have come in handy as reference material later. It's so hard to retain info in the heat
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was really a fun time for me as well. And I am so very happy to know that you like our local fruits and coffee. I thank you for your kind suggestions, I will prepare it for the guests.
