Hello, my name is Agus and I have over 14 years of experience as a guide and driver around Yogyakarta, Java. I live in Imugiri, a district of Yogyakarta, together with my wifeand 3 kids: Jacky, Shakira and Hakim.I really enjoy meeting new people of different cultural backgrounds and learning more about their culture. I also love learning new languages and speak English, French, Spanish and Indonesian. I would love to be your guide when you are in Java.


My family and I spent the day with Agus, who took us to 2 historic temples in Indonesia. Agus was wonderful throughout the trip and accommodating to our specific interests. He was very knowledgeable, filling in many gaps that tour guides at the temples left out or could not answer. He was also very friendly as well as being very fluent and clear in English. We not only got to learn about the temples, but also about the way of life for Agus and his family in Indonesia. I wish that all of our tour guides could be as professional, knowledgeable, interesting, and friendly as Agus.

We booked the sunrise tour at the Borobodur temple, which was amazing! It's so worth getting up at 3 in the morning. Agus was a really nice guide during the day, which also showed us the countryside surrounding area, that offered lots of riceterraces, pepperfields and other vegetables and fruit fields. We could reccommand it to anyone who wants to see the Borobodur and Prambanan, but also likes the really local experiences! Agus thanks for a wonderfull day!

The day before our arrival in Yogyakarta we decided to find a way to go directly from the airport to Prambanan and Borobudur and then to the hotel. With so little time in advance, Sanne immediately answered our request and offered an easy solution with a closed price. Everything went well, on arrival at the airport in the early morning, we had a driver waiting for us and we directly started the tour. After a great and very comfortable day, he finally dropped us off at the hotel we had booked. It was a great experience that allowed us to enjoy these temples comfortably and without worries.

I was glad to find I Like Local online because we wanted a local tour guide that spoke English to show us around Yogyakarta. We were connected with Agus who provided us with a day we'll never forget! Agus developed a method of communication (WhatsApp) with us and provided options for us for our day with him. Agus was flexible and ended up picking us up at 3:30 am so we could visit Borobodur at sunrise. He knew exactly where to go, how much it cost, and the best way to pay. His car was spotless and he kindly offered to allow us to sleep while he drove us to the temple. His English was very good and easy to understand. After Borobodur, we weren't sure about the best way to see Merapi and Prambanan. Agus had wonderful suggestions, knew the locals, and helped navigate the perfect itinerary. He also made a lunch suggestion that was yummy and reasonably priced. We truly had wonderful day with Agus. I would highly recommend him as a private driver for anyone visiting Yogya.

We had a wonderful and interesting day together with Agus with visiting the temples of Yogyakarta. Furthermore Agus did help us a lot to learn more about the People and living in Java.

03 Mar 2018

Everything was perfect! He took us wherever we wanted to go and help us with a little “emergency” with the kids. We were so pleased with the visit and with Agus. Can definitely recommend him!

We had such a lovely experience with Agus' tour to the beautiful sunset at setumbu hill, the borobudur and the prambanan temple! We would recommend the tour to all of our friends and would love to see Agus again for one of his tours when one of us will be in Yogjakarta again. He is a very spontanious and friendly man who will bring you everywhere you wanted to be in the environment and who gives you a true local experience instead of the idea you are in a tour with a big touroperator or something. He told us a lot about the Indonesian culture and he had a friendly answer on all of our questions about it.
