I did this tour in October 2013. Ronnie is an excellent guide who is doing a fantastic job of educating foreign travelers and helping those most in need in Jakarta. I did this tour as a solo female traveler and would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in meeting the warm and friendly residents of Jakarta's impoverished areas.
As a comment to those who mentioned that they did not receive prompt replies to emails, I had a similar experience when looking to book the tour. Only once I took the tour did I realise how strained their resources are. In addition to giving tours, they are very busy helping the impoverished people that tourists may meet on the tour. I would encourage those looking to book this tour to be patient when waiting for a reply. I believe that Jakarta Hidden Tours are really doing their best to raise awareness and funding through the tours and help those in need.
I HIGHLY recommend this tour.
