HISTORY and culture Tours
JDN Tour Guides offer half-day tours and full-day tours including:
Half day tours are three hours in length and cost $21.00/person plus $7.00/person for transport. Group tours by private transport include snack and drinks and cost $30.00/person. Full day tours are organised and costed on request.
JDN History and Culture Tours were created as an initiative to address the problem of youth unemployment and lack of income. The tours are led by young Timorese Tour Guides who give visitors an insight into our history and cultural practices through our eyes and experience. We show visitors how to use publicly availably transport, i.e. microlets and taxis.
Visitors learn about our country and our lives as young people when you take a tour with us. As Tour Guides we encourage visitors to ask us about where we are from, what we are doing now and what we plan to do in the future. It is a great opportunity for us to learn about other countries from the people who live in or visit Timor-Leste.
Book a tour
For the Dili History Tour we will meet you on the steps of the Motael Church.
For the Women of Timor-Leste Tour we meet under the trees and red umbrellas at the front of Hotel Timor.
For group tours and customised tours we will pick you up wherever you wish.
Morning tours generally start at 9am and afternoon tours at 2pm.
Our feedback is consistently positive, as Clancy said in June 2019: It was such a pleasure to learn about history, local culture and more from such engaged, generous young Timorese professionals.
