Galih Adi took us on a 3.5 h tour around the old center of Malang. Starting from the train station, we visited i.a. both town squares, the heritage neighbourhood Kajoetangan, and an animal/plant market. Galih Adi was very knowledgeable about the history and present of the places we visited. One thing in particular that I found a good addition was that Galih Adi brought a booklet with old pictures of the places that we visited. Overall I can highly recommend a guided tour with Galih Adi!

This tour was so good! I didn't know anything about malang so started my trip with this tour and it was so worth it! Dino showed us the most interesting places and explained their history as well as less touristy places that I probably wouldn't have been to. 10/10 recommend!

The tour was absolutely amazing. He showed us the architectural highlights of Malang but also gave us an insight in it's history as well as showing us some of the more residential areas and the market. He answered all of our questions and spent a long time with us. It is clear that there is a passion for his hometown combined with a lot of knowledge that he is happy to share. Would absolutely go again!
