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.

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

If you have access to running water, internet, heating, or the ability to pay the $50USD to take this tour you will leave it a changed person. We took a 3 hour tour that takes you to the absolute grit of the city and you see things and get there by means you would never see without an unconventional tour... More
