Walk Indies is a tour operator that offers both regular tour packages (Day tours & overland tours) and some interesting walking tours. The price starts from Rp. 250,000/ tour of some popular Jakarta destinations such as the Batavia (old town) tour, Chinatown, and Gambir. These tours are also historically rich and will provide insights about the city, both for tourists or even those that have lived in Jakarta for all their lives.
6. Real Jakarta Tour
If you want to see the real Jakarta, this is the walking tour for you. If the guidebooks and the glossy magazines recommend you the glitzy parts of Jakarta, this ‘hidden jakarta’ tour takes you to the nooks and crannies of the city, the kampongs and even slum, where many still live under poverty line. Fifty percent of the surpluses of the fee-donation will be shared to their foundation for emergency, education, and empowerment activities.
