I am an officially licensed guide by the government from 1989 (beware of the drivers pretending to be a guide; they charge you cheaper but they don’t know to guide you inside of the tourist objects and the government tourist police will fine people without official license escorting tourist).
I love my job as a tour guide and thanks to my job; I have been in 26 Indonesian islands (out of 13.466).
