Dito is an excellent guide. Very friendly, lots of interesting information, perfect pace for our group, beautiful background pictures from earlier times, very relevant for our interests and accommodating our needs (traveling with a child). We also visited places in Malang that we would otherwise have missed and even got good recommendations for restaurants and future tours around Malang. We highly recommend taking a walking tour with Tido.

**Wow, what an experience!** Our guide truly went above and beyond to show us all facets of Malang. She delved into the city's history, discussing colonization, the school system, and the architecture. We got a glimpse of both the beautiful and less beautiful parts of the city, experiencing real life as well as the more touristy spots. We visited the bird market, the fish market, a typical suburb, and a local bakery. Her recommendations for places to visit afterwards were spot on, and she patiently answered all of our questions. She was a powerful, intelligent guide with perfectly understandable English. This tour was the highlight of my time in Malang!
