Jogja, is always a city that has something. It’s more than just a home to amazing temples and green natures, but its strong cultural foundation are reasons why people feel comfortable and keep coming back to stay.
There are bunch of amazing places to visit in Jogja, but we believe that the ‘real’ Jogja feeling can mostly be found in off-beaten track. That’s why we provide Jogja Walking Tour so that everyone can feel how it is to be Yogyakartans, and how beautiful the cultural foundation of the city.
In our Jogja Walking Tours, we will bring you to the areas that give the best sense to the city. We will explore old neighborhoods, walking through small alley, hidden old houses, and also the sights that has best stories to the city. Each tour has its own stories. The groups will be limited to only 15 participants per guide, in order to create a more interactive and intimate experience.
