About the tour

To support the newly independent country of Indonesia, in 1945, the Sultan of Yogyakarta kingdom decided to join Indonesia as one of its states (provinces). In the appreciation to this kind support, the Indonesian government later granted a special status of this province where the reigning Sultan will become the Governor of the province as one of its privileges. Come and join me in this tour, where you will see the pavilions inside the palace center-ground where the royal family lives, learn about batik making and its philosophy, as well as the rich cultures and ceremonies of Javanese society.

Meet Gagat


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 :)"
