I use Smailings which is one of the biggest and best known. I don't know that I'd call ANY travel agent in Jakarta reliable, though. You really have to check everything.

What do you need a travel agent for? You can book almost anything on your own.

We are the big group of friends who intend to visit Jakarta ad Bali. So I think to book some services through a local reliable travel agent will be better. We will have not to take care of everything.

I have a family memeber that is a travel agent in California who specializes in travel to Indonesia. She is Indonesian so she knows Indonesia very well.

Here is her email. Her name is Bunnie Usman
[email protected]

Just tell her her Uncle Billfrom Houston referred you. Good luck! let me know if she was able to help you.

I usually use Bayu Buana which has branches in every major city in Indonesia, including Jakarta (several) and Denpasar (one next to the big Carrefour).

HI T_Hana. Bayu Buana website is http://www.bayubuanatravel.com/ They have several branch offices in Jakarta but the one I like is in Kemang. You can email them and see what they say...Jakarta is hard to get around in due to bad traffic so best to work with them by email and if necessary they can messenger tickets or whatnot to you..

We have used Floressa Tours in Bali, (send an email to Paul) He has helped us with hotels, tours, driver. They were excellent, we have been back 4 times in the last 5 years.

Glad you contacted Floressa Tours, we were totally happy wtih them and will continue to use them. Say hello to Paul for us, (John and Barbara) and when you use a driver ask for Merta.
We are going back in March.
