Reliable, friendly and protective

Me and my wife have been with Mr. Dadang in Yoyakarta (three days) and everything was fine. He was really helpful, when – at the arrival – we were out of cash due to a withdrawal problem with my Card. He even anticipated the money we needed for our first small expenses. Punctual as a Swiss watch… Safe but smart with its drive-style. When still inYoyakarta, we asked him to arrange a visit to Mt Bromo: 1) car & driver pick up in Surabaya Airport 2) switch to a 4wd jeep in Cemoro Lawang 3) drop off in Malang. Every segment has been perfectly combined. Mr Dadang was able to successfully connect with his correspondents. Actually, we met him just in Yoyakarta but …we “felt” his presence/surveillance in Bromo and also in Ubud (Bali), the third segment of our vacation. Another guy, another car, but everything sounds like we had just one service counterpart. WhatsApp did the rest. Small program adjustments were easily negotiated. What about the payment? No surprises at all. 

Please consider on TripAdvisor, I’ve rank-ticked only “four dots” (not five) just to avoid not being believed (sorry Mr Dadang). In fact he was excellent!”

A great driver

“We came in contact with Pardi through his own website. Together with Pardi we have filled in our itinerary: with a luxurious and always clean car from Bogor to Yogyakarta in ten days, with a lot of interesting stops. From the first moment we felt very familiar with Pardi. He is a very friendly and above all nice man who does not shy away from a joke. Moreover, and not unimportantly, he is a great driver with a wide driving experience. He can tell a lot about the local culture, knows where to find beautiful places and can also tell a lot about what grows and blossoms at the side of the road. Also Unggul, Pardi’s colleague driver, who drove us around Yoyjakarta for two days, is a great driver with humor: his great laugh is still deep in our memory. Pardi and Unggul: It was fantastic!”

Martin Hagenaar from the Netherlands (May 2018)


Very sympathetic, helpful and a safe driver

“We met Pardi on our 4-day trip on the island of Java. Pardi, I can confirm, is very sympathetic, helpful, and is a good and safe driver. I highly recommend him!”

Pardi, a great guy!!

rental car with driver indonesiaOur son and daughter-in-law did a trip with Pardi before and were very pleased about it. It turned out the same for us. My wife and I visited the biological mother and brother of our daughter-in-law in Central Java. Thanks to Pardi, this was a great experience.

The family lives in a very simple house, they have hardly any income, so the circumstances are rather disturbing. Pardi advised us to bring some groceries, basic necessities such as rice, oil, detergent, soap, toothpaste and brush. After arriving Pardi organised and took care of the communication, since we do speak the language. With Pardi as a translator, we had good contact. Mother and son turned out to sleep on shelves, so we went with Pardi to a bed store and bought a mattrass. The farewell was emotional, we hope to be able to return to them soon.

The other day we drove from Yogyakarta to the North of Central Java. Pardi drove calm and in full control through the traffic, on a bad road. In the meantime, telling us interesting facts about the area, and stopped if necessary; like at a livestock market with lots of cows. Very nice to experience. After a ride of about 7 hours we said goodbye to a great guy, good driver and a good man. Next time Pardi will be our driver!”

Peter from the Netherlands/Spain (April 2018) 


Great driver and host

“Pardi was the ultimate host, he showed us around, gave great suggestions, was a great companion during the inadvertent traffic jams we encountered. He suggested alternate hotels when the ones we had booked didn’t work out. We can recommend him to any of you who wish to visit Java. He made our vacation a wonderful experience.”

Leonora Brooke from Germany (January 2018)


Excellent and sympathetic driver who knows his country very well

“Dadang Supardi accompanied us as our driver and guide for more than 15 days during our trip on Java and Bali. He is a very careful driver and he has a thorough knowledge of his country. He made us discover some places outside the usual circuits. He is very friendly, smiling and punctual; we can only recommend him! He is fluent in English and has a very comfortable car. Dadang remains a beautiful encouter that marked our trip. We advise you to contact him.”

Bernadel from Belgium (December 2017)


Fantastic good driver, guide and also a very sympathetic man

“Pardi travelled with us on Java for more than two weeks and this was a great success in all areas. We were looking for very specific places from our family history. Thanks to Pardi’s expertise and his search talent, we were able to find all these locations. Next to this, he was very sensitive to our wishes in terms of restaurants and interests. Pardi is a very sympathetic man, with a wide range of interests, a good conversation and above all, he is an excellent and safe driver. We encourage everyone to use Dadang Supardi’s services!”

Familie Schneider from the Netherlands (December 2017)


Good driver, who doesn’t take any risks

“Pardi was our driver during our days on Java and Bali. He is very friendly, knows what to tell about the culture and is a good driver, who doesn’t take any risks. His English is more than sufficient. We discussed our itinerary with him by e-mail. He advises on the itinerary as well, but left the final choice of the route to us. We recommand him if you are looking for a private driver.”

Ellen from the Netherlands (October 2017)


Beautiful view over Yogyakarta

“Me and my girlfriend have done a tour together with Pardi and we could fill this in to our wishes, also with additions of Pardi; nice places with beautiful view over Yogyakarta; all in all a great day!”

A great time with Pardi on Lombok, Bali and Java

Dadang Supardi (Pardi) your driver and guide on Java

“We went on holiday to Lombok, Bali and Java for ten days. A friend told us about Pardi en we got in touch through Whatsapp. We discussed our plans with him and he gave us some good suggestions. He arranged a local guide and negotiated the price for us. We soon learned that he knows his way and the people and the places to be, in Java. He brought us where we wanted, when we wanted to. Pardi is very nice and great to chat with, for us as well as for our teenage daughters. He could answer almost all of our questions about Indonesia’s nature, traditions, people, cities, social structure, etc.. Pardi was really flexible, when sometimes we decided to alter our plans, he always tried to find the best way to fulfill our wishes. In short, we had a great time travelling with Pardi!”
