Dina Fatharani

I am an Indonesian and raised practicing my culture (Javanese). I learned the language, the music, the dance, the history and even recipes directly from my grandparents.

I know exactly what it takes to make an original, tailor-made trip. I started my journey as a freelance city tour guide in Jakarta. I decided to be an expert in hospitality and travel industry since I graduated from university.

I moved to Lombok and worked as a licensed tour operator. I used to work for young travelers coming to the island seeking adventure. But I also enjoyed planning honeymoon and family trips.

Now in Bali, I continue creating smiles on satisfied travelers.

How did you get involved in travel?

"I first bought my ticket to Bangkok after I finished my study in Criminology. Later I discover my passion towards traveling and decided to get certified as a Tour Operator. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My first trip to Bangkok was pretty much unplanned. It was my first time traveling solo and I did my best to come out of my shell. It was special to me because I ended up doing things that the old me would never do. "
