Benny is an exceptionally good guide. He was on time, knowledgeable and fun. He brought us to the best places and cleverly customized the tour to our requirements. He is totally fluent in English, having worked at the American Embassy for many years. We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone and feel ourselves lucky to have found him. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Jakarta and will certainly ask him to show us more. He took us to 2 outstanding restaurants.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you Jonathan for your kind commend and rating, looking forward to see you again in Jakarta and Bali, send my best regards to ibu Murni Yours sincerely Benny J

Benny was a wonderful guide. Due to my circumstances, we had to do some workarounds and he was great at making it all work. The fishing village and old pier are wonderful sites - I got some great pictures and some wonderful history about the Dutch and French in Jakarta over the years. Thanks, Benny!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you Sir for your very kind comment, hope for your successful event on this Saturday and a wonderful fly home on this Sunday. Thanks again Benny J
Benny was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The tour itself was great and I was able to learn a lot about the historical, political and cultural aspects of Jakarta. Benny was also very flexible with the itinerary, catering to my interests and limited time available. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe having Benny as a guide. I would definitely recommend Benny to anyone thinking of hiring a local guide in Jakarta! Thanks so much Benny!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you Maggie for your very kind comment, I also enjoyed the tour and learned a lot from you, stay in touch, stay in touch

We spent a very enjoyable day with Benny who was very cheerful, knowledgeable, and accommodating.He arrived at 8am at our airport hotel and drove us around Jakarta stopping for photos at iconic spots. We only had one day in Jakarta and we felt that we saw and learned a lot, not just about the city but also about the government and the way of life. Fortunately it was Sunday and also Ramadan so the traffic was light. We stopped in the main square for a delicious lunch with live music. Perfect day out.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks you for having me as your guide and write a kind comment, have an enjoyable holuday and wonderful flight trip :)

Benny provided a good tour of very interesting visit to fishing and traditional ports which were a stunning contrast to the city area.Weather turned bad so we had a very good lunch of Indonesian style foods.His informative narrative of Indonesia and its heritage was most enjoyable.

Willard StridUnited States
our day with Benny was excellent. when booking the tour i provided input for some changes to his standard tour, all of which he incorporated. due to severe weather conditions in Hong Kong our arrival flight was delayed by 7 hours which required us to change our start time. again Benny adjusted our tour to start and end later in the day. his personality and knowledge of Jakarta made for a most pleasant day. highly recommend him to show you around.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the wonderful comment and having me me as your tour guide, I was also enjoy very much the tour, thanks again
Walter OshiroUnited States
I highly recommend Benny as a tour guide - see my review for my Bandung tour with Benny. For this photography tour, Benny let me set the pace - lingering at some sites and moving along at other sites. He had previous dealings with many individuals at the tour sites and this helped make the visit go smoothly. Even though I was the only foreigner at many of the sites, I felt comfortable with Benny at my side. I had a lot of great photo ops and a better appreciation of daily life in Jakarta.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Walters for a kind respond, I saw your pictures in FB, they are really good
Yet another great day with Benny on this wonderful tour! We saw so much of the 'behind the scenes' of Jakarta. So many great pictures! The fishing village where locals dry their fish was very special and so was the port. Thank you Benny!
Constance GirodaySurrey, BC, Canada
Benny is extremely intelligent, very gentle and kind. He is very patient and goes with the flow. I felt very safe and well taken care of by both Benny and our driver. Benny went out of his way to accommodate my requests. He was very punctual each day. I would recommend Benny as a Jakarta specialist. Thank you for making Jakarta and the outer side trips so great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Constance, very kindd of you recommending me as Jakarta specialist I also enjoyed to do the tour with. I unfortunately have a sad news that the 300 years old Chinese temple that we visited was burned down last week I hope iy will be built again immediately
