Best free walking tour so far! He showed us the house he grew up in, some beautiful quarters away from main stream tourism, told us a lot about his experience growing up/living in Malang and was happy to answer all of our many questions. The tour was the highlight of our stay in Malang, we can absolutely recommend this to anyone!
