“A must for any vistor to Jakarta!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Be brave and experience Jakarta the way it is truly lived there! Ronny showed us the highs and lows of this vibrant city, using just about all the modes of public transportation available. The visit to the slums was a sobering but necessary experience, and I am so grateful to the people who live there for allowing us to walk through their cramped living spaces. This day spent with Ronny was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Indonesia. We recommend it highly to anyone visiting jakarta.

“Only if you are really interested to get aware of the poor of Jakarta”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Ronny & Anneke, the hosts and organizers of these tours but mainly the people at the origin of this social initiative to help the poorest in this city. They want to give opportunity to come close to awful life conditions and do this in wonderful respect of the people they support. Don't go there on the search for good photos, you'll do them wrong.
I hope that they will find the way to get more people to support them in order to structure more their support and make their great work more efficient and get to touching the right people.
There is some sightseeing around, but beside the great mosque, this is not the most valuable part.
