Do not miss it if you are visiting Indonesia This tour is one of the best experiences you can do while visiting Indonesia. The tour guides will take through the hidden places of Yogyakarta, places that you could not find in a guide or any app even some locals do not know about them. Moana staff will share with you more about the culture and life style within the city, having the opportunity to interact with locals and build some unforgettable memories. Don’t miss the chance to join once you visit jogja.

See the real Yogyakarta Had a great afternoon bike rode along the river getting a real insight into local people. The mountain bikes are very high quality and easy to ride. Life by the river and the history of the volcano and how it affected this part of town is amazing. So many smiling people, adults and children, all eager to say hi and shake your hand, I feel privileged to have met them. Time flew by and then I was treated to a local band practicing Indonesian traditional music at the university..... super special. I admire the guys who have set up this initiative to show tourists a piece of local which is insightful and very interesting and I feel humble to have attended and help them to help the local people. I would highly recommend this tou, you will not regret it.

Excellent service and responsiveness Anita was willing to do a tour on the morning of January 1st on very short notice, and responded to our inquiries instantly. We also loved the fact that she made a very well edited short video of our tour to be shared with friends. Finally, her idea to provide small gifts to people we encountered, and to generally include a social purpose makes her enterprise more attractive. Congratulations to this woman entrepreneur in Yogya, highly recommended!

Memorable I've done a few cycling tours with MOANA and I enjoyed every bit of it. Anita and Alfad are the sweetest and it's so nice to have a look at Jogjakarta from a different perspective with some great locals. I'm living in Jogja for 10 months now, but during the tours I felt like I was in completely different world.. Loved it!! Besides all this, I've also learned a lot about the history of the places we crossed. I will definitely join again!!
