I requested for an English speaking guide and he was punctual (waited for us at the hotel lobby) and he shared with us many history and explain patiently throughout the journey. The driver can’t speak much English but he was nice and smiley. He made us felt safe in his car as the roads were a little bumpy and winding when we went up to Taman Simalem. Do wear lots of sunscreen and bring a scarf if you are afraid of cold. Be prepared for scattered showers, so happened we encountered when we were there. Enjoyed the itinerary:)
