Meet up with your tour group at the Harmoni Central Busway Station, then travel by wagon to the first stop of the day, Jakarta Cathedral.

Climb up to the top of of the monument for a great view of your surrounding area, then check out the museum at the base of the monument, where you'll learn about significance of the monument to the Indonesian independence movement.
Jeff wed the best tour guide! Although we could't find the meeting point, he still found us. He explained the history, culture, people, food and what should we do in Indonesia. He totally made our trip a wonderful memory. Would definitely come again next time. I really recommend Jeffry! The detailed guide commentary not only learns a lot of knowledge, but also enriches this trip, it is worth the cost!
it was an amazing tour. jeffry my tour guide was an awesome person. I was the only person for the tour on that day so I was a bit apprehensive of how to the tour will go. but Jeffrey was so cool and made the touring experience a memorable one.jeff showed up at the appointment time with the klook cap which made it easier for me to identify him. his english is average but his knowledge of jakarta and the history of the landmark locations is exhaustive. I loved the way he explained the entire Indonesian freedom struggle history in the monas museum. I loved the jakarta cathedral very much. he even bought me street food and gave suggestions for what food to eat. I eat only vegetarian food on that day, and Jeff was kind enough to choose the best vegetarian street foods for me. when we went to the mosque we met a couple of Chinese tourists who had come to visit the mosque but did not have Indonesian currency or a tour guide. jeffry was kind enough to ask them to join with us and explained everything in detail to all of us. I would recommend this tour for all them who visit jakarta and don't forget to get Jeff number
A very must tour if its your first time in Indonesia. Jeff is very smart honest, nice, helpful, informative, friendly, responsible etc. When we first met it seems like we have known him before.
The tour itself is a gist of Indonesia's rich culture which I believe jeff have mastered already. :)
Just a tip when you book. Get Jeff's number.
We will surely try other tours with jeff the time we go back to Indonesia.
