What people are saying about History Tours in Jakarta
The tour covers the major tourist attractions in Jakarta. it’s a private tour with air-conditioned coach and free pick up from and to our hotel. The tourist guide was friendly and professional, he gave much information on the historical background of Indonesia. We felt fruitful and the tour price was valuable.
I had a great time with my tour. Miss Cherry was my tour guide. She’s very nice and friendly. We were able to go to the top of the National Museum and she took me to a puppet workshop which was really amazing. For 1 day I was able to know about Jakarta History.
Comment with the Klook - i wish they’ll allow to book for 1 person. You can’t book for a single person.
But tour was worth it. :)
It was super great tour, learned a lot about history of indonesia and all.. i would recommend Ms. Nathalie if you will be your tour guide.. most best for first time traveller.. Maybe the klook can have an option for solo traveller so cannot pay twice because there is no option for one tourist, it must be two..
