Registered on December 20, 2022

Hey Adventurers! My name is Kenya! I'm originally from Indonesia, born in Kenya, and seasoned in Morocco for a whole decade. I'm fluent in English, French, and Indonesian: I'm your language ninja:). Growing up abroad gifted me a passport full of friendships and a love for the diverse beauty of countries and cultures. Now back in Indonesia, I've embraced the backpacker hostel life—meeting fascinating people from all walks of life and happily trading knowledge. Being part of these hostel encounters has sparked my desire to showcase my incredible city. Make people discovering cultures stemming from thousands of ethnic groups, savoring cuisines from various corners of Indonesia, and immersing ourselves in its one-of-a-kind traditions. However, some folks might say new travelers to "get out of Jakarta as fast as you can", but I'm here to prove them wrong! Jakarta is my playground, and I'm eager to showcase its lively, vibrant, and downright charming side. So, buckle up for a tour filled with laughter, delightful culinary surprises, and the warmest smiles Jakarta has to offer. I'm not just a guide; I'm your humorous, friendly, and ever-helpful companion. Let's make your Jakarta adventure unforgettable! 😄🌍🍜

It was really fun to hang out with Kenya and try lots of different food, but you have to pace yourself because there is so much! Be sure to have a light lunch and no snacks that day.

Kenya ist eine faszinierende Person. Sie erzählt einem auf eine sehr angenehme und spannende Art viele interessante Fakten und Dinge über ihre Stadt Jakarta und Indonesien. Gleichzeitig ist sehr neugierig und an ihren Gästen interessiert. Das ist genau die Kombination, die es für einen guten Tour Guide braucht. Sie war auch bereit (unaufgefordert) mehr als geplant zu unternehmen und noch etwas street Food zu organisieren. Insgesamt eine sehr gute Tour. Danke Kenya!

Kenya‘s Tour was great. She gave us a lot of insights into Jakarta‘s food culture, showed us many delicious spots & overall it was a lot of fun to spend the evening with her & the group! Also the next day Kenya invited us to cook Indonesian lunch together so we not only learned how the Indonesian street food tastes but also how to prepare some dishes on our own at home. Thank you for this great experience!
