I still remain in two minds about this experience. It does open your eyes to how people manage to survive with very little but still feels voyeuristic. Take lots of pencils and and writing pads to distribute to the small children who accompany you on tour. I think the organisers are genuine and the money paid does go to supporting... More

After starting the tour, the first stop is next to a railway line and I mean 1 meter away on one side and the river on the other side. Dark dingy smelly corridors lead you finally to an opening where children play and people live in small huts. The next stop is near the river, where in an area of... More

We had an amazing experience on this tour. We feel that it is very important to give back to the community, and Ronny and Anneke are doing an amazing job! We only wish we could have done more. Highly recommended for all!

After living in Jakarta for 18 months we found out about this tour. It was eye opening, interesting and sad, but a real journey into the life of the desperately poor people of Jakarta. It's hard to imagine why they smile but they do. The kids are happy following you around and demonstrating their English skills which were quite good.... More

In this tour, you will visit several slum areas of Jakarta. You get close to the people living there, get to talk with them and see how they live. The children are super excited to meet you! Local transport (bajaj, anjkot, becak and boat) is used between the different locations. The people living in the slums greeted the guides as... More

This tour is a must do if coming to Jakarta. Ronny & Anneke are passionate about helping the unseen in their city, a city with a huge divide between the rich or moderately rich, and the poor. It will shock you but all the people we met were generous with their time, gentle, kind & very resourceful.

We can surely recommend this tour. It is very interesting to see the site of Jakarta that you otherwise not wil see. With local transport, a nice part of the tour, you wil visit 3 parts of the city where the poor people live. It was nice to have contact with the children en visit the habitants. We had a... More

This tour was amazing. While not for everyone, those willing to see what life in poverty is really like will be blown away.

This is a must in Jakarta. Your heart will be tugged in several directions and in the end will give you a new perspective on many things. Fantastic guides and the most friendly people you will meet on your adventures.

Make no mistake, this tour is not for everyone. If you are used to cruise ships and nights at the finest clubs, you probably won't like this. But if you care about humanity and have some previous experience with those who live in the rest of the world, Ronnie and his guides will give you a true view of Jakarta's... More
