Testimony for The Good Guide (3)

From : Jason Chin (Hong Kong)

Tour Date : Apr 19, 2014

What he said:

Farid is the most genuine guide in Jakarta that you could meet. He was knowledgeable, amiable and courteous throughout. Bird’s nest was on our shopping list, and we appreciated Farid’s recommendation of a specialist store where we bought the delicacy. Surprisingly, Farid politely declined my offer of a tip (in thanks for a wonderful tour); he clearly enjoys meeting new people and getting to know them, whilst taking pride in sharing his home city. Thanks very much, Farid!

What she said :

Farid and his driver and friend Candha picked us up at Jakarta Airport early in the morning, and were most enjoyable company visiting the signature sights of Jakarta, including the Old Town and working port, Batavia and the history museum, MONAS and the Grand Mosque. We really enjoyed talking with them. Farid is charming, speaks English perfectly and it was fun learning about his life in Jakarta and work as a radio announcer. Both of these young men are ideal ambassadors for Jakarta.
