Cycling Tour with MOANA I knew MOANA Sustainable Bicycle Tour from IG and i asked my friends to follow IG account to see further activities they have. At first, we are so impressed with photos and videos. Then, we started to searched for the suitable packages and made a booking by whatsapp. The admin was so kind and informative. We made several changes at first due to train and airplaine schedule but the MOANA team still gave us the best possible package they have to meet with our needs. They tried to answer all questions and highlight our request such as size of bike, colour preferences and route. On the day of the tour, we came a little bit late but the schedule was still be arranged based on our request. The leader, Mas AlFath, was very welcome and communicative, trying to explain the activities while greeting all of the guests with correct names. That's awesome! Well done, Mas Alfath! Also, as they knew we bring child under 7 years old, he brought us with a bubble toy! Abyan loves it so much. Thanks again for that. Overall, it was a great experience to see traditional rice field while listening to short stories about Kulon Progo, Bukit Menoreh, and other places around Nanggulan. We also had a chance to taste the great traditional cuisine, Jamu and Geblek, which were one of the best food we had so far in Jogja. At last, we would like to say thank you for delivering the best service and hope to see you again in the future. Good Luck, MOANA!…

Friendly and Supportive Moana Team Our experience with Moana was satisfying. The team was very accommodative as I'm cycling with wide range of age from high school to 50s, they always ask participants condition to ensure that everyone is okay. Next time will definitely try for the customized route

Unforgettable cycling adventure in Jogja Great experience with Moana. I was joined the Nanggulan Fun Cycling Activities. The trip were kids friendly, the guide was very interactive and helpful during the cycling activities. The route was designed with easy to medium cycling skill, and so the bike is well maintained. Somehow the cycling activities was showing the mutualism between the moana, the participant, and local communities. Also, it introduced the local heritage food from Kulon Progo such as tempe benguk, tahu kulon progo, geblek, and a refreshing jamu. For me personally, it brings back the memory from my childhood when cycling in the middle of rice paddy fields and irrigation was a daily ritual. And i would like to bring the same experience to my kid and children. Just a little suggestion, maybe Moana have some thought to bring the Family Cycling activity (by providing bike with child seat) into the Royal Route. 🙂 Can’t wait to join another trip with Moana.…
