Highly recommended 

We contacted Pardi and his team with the request for a private driver, who would take us on a Java to Bali road trip, starting from Yogyakarta. Knowing very little about Java/Bali, we asked for a proposition for a trip, which we received shortly after by office assistant Tika. We were free to adapt the proposal so that it fit our wishes perfectly. Because we wanted to stay in some specific hotels, Pardi’s team had no problem with us booking the hotels ourselves and just taking care of the driver and tour. All communication went through Tika and was fast and very well organized. In Yogyakarta, my wife took a cooking class with Pardi’s lovely wife Dwi, so we were very lucky to meet with Pardi and Dwi personally. Our assigned driver was Ferry and from the first encounter in Yogyakarta airport on, we hit it off perfectly. Ferry took care of all our special requests, like for example eating in a restaurant among the local people instead of a restaurant for tourists, or finding a coffee dealer where we could do a tasting and buy specific coffee brands. Ferry really squirmed his way through the hectic Indonesian traffic like it was an art-form. We never once felt unsafe. In the beginning, Ferry called me “pak” (mister) and by the end of the trip, I asked him to call me “mas” (bro). We really considered him more as a friend than just our driver. If you need a driver in Indonesia, never doubt for a second to get in touch with Pardi and his team, we highly recommend them.”

A top-notch experience

“As a family we wanted to visit Central Java and thought about hiring a car as we had enjoyed driving in Thailand previously. It makes no sense for anyone to try to hire their own car and drive in Indonesia when your price is so reasonable.
We flew into Semarang and wanted to fill four days exploring Central Java before flying out of Yogyakarta. Having contacted Pardi’s team we hatched a plan to visit the Dieng Plateau, Merapi, Borobudur and Yogyakarta using their excellent driver, Amri. The price was no more than hiring a car ourself but we were driven in total comfort by someone with incredible local knowledge and expertise. Make no mistake, Indonesian roads and traffic are not for the faint-hearted and having someone seamlessly get us into attractions and translate at restaurants was invaluable. Plus you’ve got a guide that can tell you anything you need to know about the scenery, the flora and fauna, the culture, the cuisine etc..
Whilst Dieng is not a very pretty town itself, the scenery going up was breathtaking! In fact all of Central Java was more beaten than we expected!
The whole experience was top-notch and made Central Java an even more wonderful place to explore. Highly recommended.”

Highly Recommended

“It was a really nice trip, with a nice driver. We visited Prambanan, Kraton, batik shop, silver shop and after a good lunch at a very nice restaurant we went to visit Borobudur. Everything was well arranged by these very nice people. Would highly recommend, also for their cycling tour and cooking class”

I really have to say thank you Pardi

“We had three tour days starting from Airport pick-up in Yogyakarta. We had a lot of activities that we had agreed before booking and I really have to say thank you to Pardi because he was so patient with all my requests and he managed to fit all in the time we had. Other than the”must see” in the area, the cooking class and the dinner we had with his wife was unforgettable, as well as the batik course (we really made our batik from scratch experiencing different techniques).
He also organized the long transfer to Malang.
All went smoothly.”

Excellent

Dadang Supardi Tours is great to work with. I had very specific interests to pursue in Central Java, and Pardi and his team did the research and legwork in advance of my travels to make sure that I could visit the places and meet the people I hoped to. Amri is an excellent driver and great company, with a friendly and flexible approach. Thank you very much!

Best Indonesian guide and driver

“We visited Indonesia during October / November 2022 and our trip started immediately when Mister Pardi picked us up from the airport in Yogyakarta. Mister Pardi is an excellent driver. My wife is always sick in the car but was never sick in the car when Mister Pardi was driving. Mister Pardi is always on time (always 15 min earlier than agreed).

We went with Mister Pardi from West Java to East Java and Bali. He knows the best places to visit in Java and he can tell you a lot of background about some beautifull places in Indonesia. We had a trip of our life and if you are going to visit Indonesia you need to have Mister Pardi on your side! Thanks for the wonderfull trip.”

Great personal drivers in Indonesia

“Pardi organised us two drivers for 9 days who were absolutely fantastic. They were very friendly, good drivers and helped us whenever they could. I would recommend this service to everyone who plans to travel to Indonesia.”

Top guidance and service

Dadang Supardi (Pardi) your driver and guide on Java

“We booked Mr Pardi in advance from Belgium and we have no complains whatsoever. No need for an all-in arranged tour through an external travel agency. Pardi takes you where ever you want and also arranges all the excursions to eg. Bromo and Ijen.

Our driver Kamto took us from Jakarta all the way to Jatiliuweh during 10 days. The driver’s knowledge of the country is amazing. In advance we had a specific route in mind but the Kamto was flexible enough to make adjustments here and there – some at his own suggestion.
In Yogya, Mr Pardi accompanied us during a bicycle tour in a neighboring kampung – where we received a very warm welcome. In addition, we also took cooking class: Kamto took us to the vegetable market and then we were cooking at the house of mr Pardi.
A great experience!”

A great trip which you can easily let Pardi organise for you

“We had asked Pardi to organise part of our trip
Our Dutch speaking driver Kamto picked us up in Ujung Kulon. We still had to pay for our stay there, but there was no ATM anywhere to be found. After Kamto had consulted with Pardi, Pardi lend us the money and transferred the amount to the hotel. Super neatly arranged.
Kamto speaks excellent Dutch but you shouldn’t make it too complicated. He told us intersesting things about the various plantations that we came across. We had a great trip! Which you can easily let Pardi organise for you. Because of Pardi we also saw things that we would have missed otherwise, such as a music performance in Bandung and a dance performance in Yogyakarta.”
Marjan from the Netherlands (July 2022) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Amazing and Fulfilling

A great experience spent with an even better guide!
During the first few days of our trip, most of the conversations were based on toursitique questions. However, by the end, we were joking around with him. This was a very furfilling trip.

Friendly, caring and discreet driver in Java

We travelled through part of Java with Pardi in a very comfortable van. His driving always felt safe. He is a friendly, caring and discreet person who adapted to what we wanted to see and do. He is full of excellent advice and showed us some unforgettable places and experiences. I would strongly recommend Pardi!
