Meet your local guide


Gagat loves Indonesian culture and has a great passion of showing his beautiful people and country. He will be more than happy to share some secrets of the places of interest one might never hear before, making your trip as interesting as possible. Having studied law and great attention to the current issues, he enjoys discussion with various topics over coffee in the afternoon, while also having a great passion in trains and planes. Gagat enjoys listening to almost all music genres and sometimes trying to sing at almost the right tune... no worries, he will only be guiding and not singing :)"

This was my second tour with Gagat and it was equally interesting as the first, but this time with much better video quality, so even more enjoyable. Gagat is a fantastic guide who seems very happy to share these beautiful places with us here at VirtualTours. Join him! Thank you Gagat!
