Free City Tour of Yogyakarta

Registered on May 10, 2021

Hello and Good Day! My name is Gagat, living in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I have been guiding since 2009. Since I was young, I have a great interest in hospitality industry. My experiences in this industry started with a post at a travel agency as their tour planner, then became an instructor at tourism school, guiding and leading a group tour. I also had a blessing when I worked for an international organization, that was an eye-opener for me. From my interactions with colleagues from all over the world, I learned a lot. Not only developed my English, but also gain a better understanding about respect and commitment. I like having ice coffee and chat over various topics. Above all, I love to share the beauty of my people and country with you. Ah ya... I am a train and plane spotter. So, if during our journey, I automatically look up to the sky when I hear the roaring engines, or waiting at the train crossing excitedly, please forgive me for that :) Let's live our dreams... one journey at a time

My husband and I did a walking tour with Gagat in Yogykarta, and had a really great experience. He was very easy to communicate with, professional and very knowledgable. We learned a lot about the history of Yogykarta and Javanese culture and food. We even tried several popular street foods such as charcoal coffee and pastries. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Yogykarta.
