As local, it is surprising to know information like, there is an underground tunnel that connects Kalisosok prison to Police Office in Jl. Veteran. It's free. Cool bus. Good guide. and while waiting for the departure, you can visit the museum or have... More

Our tour visited the independence museum (5000 RPh) . Tours leave several times a day and each is different (9am and 1pm when we visited). We could not book in... More

Surabaya Heritage Trail tours are free tours run by the local Surabaya City Government, who created the tour as a means to highlight and educate visitors regarding Surabaya's history and architecture and "cultural reserves". The tours start outside House of Samporna and are usually full so you might need to book a few hours ahead. Several different tours are offered.... More

Each day the museum offers at least 3 diffrent routes of tour - with different timing. Do check in advance which interest you! The old town of Surabaya always will bring you back in time,... More

Though this tour is free of charge, everything is well managed. The driver & the tour guide are friendly. The route is passing through some crowded areas, but the cozy situation in the bus makes passengers enjoy this tour. Highly recommended

This is a free bus tour which is run from the House of Sampoerna. The bus travels through "old" Surabaya as the guide on board explains (in Bahasa and English) the significance of various buildings and places. http://houseofsampoerna.museum/e_sht_main.htm
