A terriffic full itinerary for people short on time - Nurul and Didot felt like old friends after 10 minutes. Comfortable car with a safe driver, lots of refreshments and fascinating sites introduced by locals who are very proud, and rightfully so, of their multi cultural history. Thanks again for a fabulous sensory overload day!

We love Nurul. She showed us temples, museums, and taught us to appreciate Yogyakarta. All of the confusing information we had been given during our month in Indonesia began to come together. She is bright and loves to learn. She has a wonderful humor and shared some of her family lifestyle. A remarkable guide and young woman.

Nurul is an excellent guide, talks very good english and shares a lot of historical facts in visiting the temples. Pleasant company and spent time with each member of the family Very easy in communications with whatsapp which makes things efficient over and above email etc Spent a full day and went perfect. Would highly recommend Nurul to other families

Great tour!! On time, very complete, flexible in agenda.... totally worth it!
Didot is an excellent guide. Experience, knowledgeable, gentle and patient especially to my elderly parent. The trip definitely worth it.
We spent 2 fantastic days with Nurul and Didot. They took us to all the major sites in Yogja. They were very informative and friendly. They made sure that our needs we were well looked after. They took us to local restaurants for lunch. The food was delicious. This is my first tour with ToursByLocals. If this is my experience then I will certainly use them again. I highly recommend Nurul and Didot.
I have started this trip with "no idea" related with Yogyakarta but luckily I have found Nurul and Didot . Both of them are amazing. Honestly, they have reshaped my point of view completely about Indonesia and Indonesian. They know what they are doing well. It is great trip, much more than I expected, and worth visiting. All the sites are so beautiful. On top of that, with all stories from them, they make my trip absolutely memorable.

Our guide Nurul was the greatest! She arrived at our hotel on time 3:30AM to start our all day tour. She knows her history and special facts of all our sights we visited. The sunrise and sunset was good, but cloudy--Mother Nature. The breakfast, fruit market and lunch stops were perfect. She allowed us (2 guests) a couple of extra stops--very kind of her. I highly recommend Nurul as your tour guide!!
Nurul was better than our highest expectations. We loved every minute we spent in Yogya, because of her. She is a very knowledgeable guide and a kind, friendly and fun person at the same time. In two days she managed to fit everything we asked for. She answered every question we had and she gave us so much inside for the culture and the people of Yogya. She even went out of her way to arrange an issue we had with overweight luggage. We are so greatful we met her and we really hope to meet again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Andreas and Marios for everything and choose Yogyakarta for your holiday in Indonesia. I can't say more but both of you are the greatest person ever. I am also grateful to have chances to introduce my culture to you. See you again guys!! let's still keep in touch. Best regards, Nurul

They new all the best views and we had a great time. Also they are a fun, lovely couple--the type of people everyone enjoys hanging out with. We laughed a lot and had a memorable experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Shuli. It is our honour to show you around. We were lucky as well for getting a lovely sunrise and sunset. See you again someday... A warm hug from us, Nurul and Didot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Sammy for the chance to giving you and Jihane your first hiking and volcano experience. it was so much fun to have the tour with both of you. See you next time for another adventure to catch the top and the sunrise. Best regards Didot and Nurul
We warmly recommend this tour. Nurul is helpful, friendly and pays attention to details. We enjoyed every part of the tour. If you travel with children they should also enjoy the day. It is the best way to discover Yogjakarta's surroundings. Nurul makes you feel like a local! Thank you so much!

Nurul was a fun and enthusiastic tour guide, she is knowledgeable and happy to answer endless questions and is flexible with itinerary requests - provided delicious suggestions for local food far from the usual tourist spots with pitstops for amazing coffee! We were accompanied by her cousin as driver, who entertained our teens with their mutual love of music! Would highly recommend booking the 2 day tour with Nurul!

5 star tour of Jogjakarta with Nurul as guide and Didot as driver. They are enthusiastic and knowledgeable young people, and their positive energy adds greatly to the experience. We particularly enjoyed the village tour and some interesting restaurants as well as the beautiful temples. We thank them for being our guide and driver for 4 days.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We are always greatfull that this path we took as a travel guide bring us to meet great and nice people like you guys. You are the one that make your holiday here memorable because with happy and nice people like you make us want to show more, do more, smile more and share more happiness. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Wish you all the best from Jogjakarta
Two days yogyakarta tour by Nurul and Didot was amazing! They both have a lot of knowledge about the temples, religion and local customs so we could learn a lot from the sightseeing. Also the restaurants they took as to were super delicious and we could experience the real local food. One of the best memories for me would be chilling out in a hidden cafe during rain, talking and eating the best pisang goreng I've ever tried. Couldn't imagine a better yogyakarta tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure for us to show you and Shigeru our tradition and nature. But some how the nature made us change our plan and ended up in traditional house cafe with great conversation. Thanks for your kindness and friendship, hope all the best for the years to come and see you again soon. Didot and Nurul
Thank you to Nurul & Didot for a memorable time during our visit to Jogja. Helpful, friendly and very nice. We had a great time during our two days tour with them. Highly recommended to those looking for tour guide. Thumbs up and keep up the good work.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you guys also for enjoying our companion. And I'm personally say sorry for being absent in the last day. Can't wait for you to come back and explore more :)

Nurul and her husband Didot were wonderful. They worked with us to plan our visit and were very flexible throughout. We saw the important temples but they also took us to local markets, favorite restaurants and national parks. We even had a cooking class at their home. I don't think we could have had a better window into Yogyakarta than to be guided by them. We highly recommend them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review for us, we really appreciate it. So much fun days we spent together and thanks for all the sharing, conversation and of course for being amazing guests Best regards Grass Root Didot and Nurul
We had a great day with Nurul and Didot. From irst contact their service etc. was 1st class, as was their knowledge and passion for Jogja/Indonesia and all of the sites we visited over the course of the day. The itinerary makes for a long day, but they manage the pace and are flexible and great hosts - they are packing a lot in but you get a lot out of it. Super value all round also. Great company for the day, we got out of the car with big smiles and wish them well but hope to be in touch again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martin, we also had an amazing day with you and your wife. Great guests like you always make the trip much better for all of us. We are glad that the "packing a lot in but you get a lot out" is still sticks in your mind hahaha... thank you again for choosing us as your travel buddy in Yogyakarta and especially for the nice review. we hope both of you are fine there in Singapore, and see you soon there or here again :D
