We (high school buddy and I) took the street food walking tour with Ms. Eti in October and it was great. She took us to a variety of places (covered malls, sidewalk stalls, regular restaurant) and her English explanations were impeccable. We ended up at a Sumatra restaurant for our final dish and we liked it so much we went back the next night. Highly recommended!

While traveling with my nine year old son, we toured Jakarta with Ms. Eti for 2 days, and she did an amazing job of introducing us to her city, to Indonesian culture, and, of course, to the amazing cuisine of her nation. Our visit was enriched in a wonderful way... it wouldn't have been in any way the same without it. She gave us deeper insights, and a local experience that was unavailable to us as foreigners. All with kindness, patience, and good cheer. We loved our time with her. We are grateful that we chose her company, and highly recommend their service.

It was a really nice tour. Our tour guide, Ms. Eti, is very knowledgeable about the local food. She took the three of us to food courts, street food stalls, and restaurants to try the delicious local cuisine. She introduced the ingredients and history of the foods she recommended, and they were all yummy. We also discussed the different food cultures of Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, China, and Colombia. As a Chinese person, I was happy to discover that some local foods are influenced by Chinese cuisine. I even tried a Bajaj (a three-wheeled vehicle in Jakarta), which I had never had the confidence to try before. Now, I also feel more confident about trying local street food.

This walking tour is not cheap but the reviews were good. We wanted a private tour so we booked it. It's certainly worth the money. The price includes lots of extras (boat ride, museum entry, drink, trying herbal teas, visit to wayang puppet master). We had a very knowledgeable guide and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the old town and harbour.

This was a fantastic way to see many different parts of Jakarta in one day - there's no way I would have been able to do this on my own. Eti was very knowledgable, as well as being really fun to spend the day with. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to discover more of the city but doesn't have a lot of time.

Best food tour in Jakarta It’s one of the best experience in Jakarta. The team is responsive and our food tour guide, Eti is very friendly and explains well the diverse of Indonesian’s food. We tried street food, nice cafe and local restaurants that we couldn’t find by myself. It’s worth it. It was my pleasure to meet Eti. Hilghly recommend the tour if you are looking for meeting nice local people and experience the culture.

Worth it I had a few hours in Jakarta so I decided to use them in a productive way. A food tour is one of the availabilities for an afternoon. The tour was very good. Eti picked me from the hotel and was very punctual. Went to eat in several places and besides the food, got a cultural description of Jakarta and Indonesia in general I very much recommend this tour if you have several hours to spend

Eat like a local If you are in Jakarta, this food tour is a must to know the food culture there. It covered street food vendors, really local restaurants, which I never could go by myself. You will have a good culture shock experience! The tour fee could be a bit high if you do not eat much.

3 Day Customised Tour Eti was highly informative. Did a 3 day tour with her covering Jakarta's history, famous spots, culinary scenes, and chinatown. I felt I grasped Jakarta's essence through the tour and would recommend it for anyone trying to do the same. Keep up the great work! Muhammad Fakhr

Great Tour I had 2 days with Etti which gave me better aspects and a better view regarding Jakarta, the tythem of the city, the culture, the food and the people. Etti was very professional and took me to all main attractions in Jakarta. The second day was a half day tour in Jakarta China Town. Once i come again to Jakarta i will definately hire Jakarta walking tour again to see more of Jakarta and also outside the metropolin. Thank you
