Yakob was a great host and knowledgeable guide, I stayed at his guest house, Wisma Papa Tia Toraja. He also provide excellent local meals with home grow vegetable at a very reasonable price. He took me to a noble funeral and to the spectacular buffalo market. Highly recommend to stay and get Yakob as a guide when you are in Toraja.

I did a guided one day tour with yacob and he showed as so many interesting places and shared his huge knowledge about the rituals and the history of tana toraja and its people with us. Yacob is very friendly, always smiling and willing to help with everything. He is doing his job professionally but still makes you feel like a friend. I can highly recommend his tours :)

Yacob is very friendly and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Tana Toraja. He showed us the market place and several very interesting and beautiful burial sites. He also took us to a funeral ceremony that we'll never forget!
