TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nadya and Ryan. It was also a great pleasure for me to show you around. Take care!
His knowlegde of Yogyakarta teached me much more then I already know about my javanese culture. He is a friendly and calm guide. Also flexible when you want to do something else instead of the planned trip. I had a good experience with him. Thank you for the good service and taking good care of me.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, it was a great surprise for me to know that we share the same culture. I thank you for helping me understood more of what has been a story I heard about diaspora. Take care and hope that our paths will cross again, someday.
Our temple tour with Gagat was amazing. He was very professional and knowledgeable and took care of everything for us. The tour exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this tour with Gagat to anyone who doesn't mind a very long day with lots of stair climbing and would rate it 5 star.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, I appreciate very much that you taking the time to post a fantastic 5 star rating and complimentary review of our tour at Borobudur. I am delighted you had enjoyed the experience as it was really a great day for me, as well. Take care, always.

My tour with Gagat was perfect! At Borobudur, he shared extensive knowledge of its history and meaning. Then a fun day exploring busy Yogya, with visits to Mendut, Sultan's Palace, Water Castle, and Prambanan. With only one day to spend, he showed me the best of Yogya. He is an excellent guide and driver, very friendly, patient, and a wealth of interesting information. His car was comfy, clean, & cool. As a solo traveler, I felt safe and well guided at all times. I highly recommend touring with Gagat!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi, thank you for your kind appreciation. It was really a great time for me, as you also share some of the knowledge that I was looking for. Take care and be happy, always
We really enjoyed our wonderful excursion to most of Yogyakarta's main sights. Gagat was brilliant, very kind, full of info but also very patient and unobtrusive if needed for what was a long but enthralling day for us. On top of that, his English was great. A real must to help us make sense of a great city. Thanks!!! Rob, Pam, Sasha.

Our day with Gagat was the highlight of our trip to Indonesia. Gagat was prompt (early actually!), extremely knowledgable, and such a pleasure to spend a day with. Given the schedule that he's come up with, we had plenty of time to really take in all of the amazing temples, especially Borobudur, which was one of the most incredible places I've seen. All of the little things were great too- he had water for us, mobile wi-fi, and his car was really comfortable. Can't recommend this tour highly enough!
I booked a customised tour with Gagat. He arrived on time at the hotel, and provided information throughout the drive (his car was very clean, with water provided). He was knowledgeable and also gave us time to wander through Borobodor and Mendut. We we drove to our lunch destination (Pulen Kopi Ponti) the weather became inclement (torrential downpoor). We re-arranged another time with Gagat to visit Prambanan and Ratu Boko and again we had the same level of excellent service.
Gagat was the best guide you could imagine to explore Yogyakarta and its surroundings! Friendly, on time, explained everything very well and in an interesting way (I've never been into religious stuff - but the way Gagat explained the story of Buddha at one of the big temples made the story interesting!) Would highly recommend his tour(s). Booking was smooth as silk and communication before and during our trips via WhatsApp made things much easier! Be sure to have an (iced) coffee with him! ;D
Gregorius was a wonderful guide. He was on time, had bottles of water ready, brought us to a local resto with cheap but delicious food, helped us save some money for the entrance fees in Prambanan temple (one of my kids didn't bring a school ID nor a copy of her passport but he managed to talk to the ticket counter to give us a discount). He was very thorough in his explanations and even called us by our first names (we were a group of 6), which made it more personalised. Highly recommended!
Gagat was the best guide I've ever worked with. He has a great knowledge on the places where we visited; while we were visiting Borobudur, Prambanan and Plaosan he explained every little detail about the temples, sculptures etc. He made our tour unforgettable. Besides his knowledge, he was a very kind and helpful person. I strongly recommend him to everyone. He is one of the best guides and also friends you can ever find. Thanks a lot! Mehmet
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Mehmet and Cagla, Thank you for your kind appreciation. I am very happy that I have the opportunity to meet with you, in your honeymoon trip. It was a blessing. Best wishes on the wonderful journey, as you build your new lives together.

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! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Charlotte, Thank you very much for your kind appreciation to my service, and also to the beauty of the culture and the people of Yogyakarta/Indonesia. Take care....
