This was the best trip I ever had in my entire life! If you want to see the reality in any given city, the hotel-organized trips will never show you. So, I contacted Jakarta Hidden Tours and shortly after Ronnie came to pick us up at the hotel. We were using public transportation in Jakarta, and that was already the experience of a lifetime! Ronnie showed us the old city and then took us into areas where no tourist would dare to go alone! We visited places of extreme poverty and yet those who live there welcomed us with smile and sincerity. The trip lasted 7 hours and what we paid for was worth every penny! I must admit, coming to Jakarta I wasn't sure I was going to experience something like that, but thanks to Ronnie, his wife and volunteers, we had an experience of a lifetime! In short, if you're in Jakarta, and want to see the truth as it really is, contact Jakarta Hidden Tours! You will not be disappointed!!

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.

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.
