My name is Suprapto, but many people choose to call me Supy. It is much easier to pronounce for many visitors to my country.
From humble beginnings growing up in a very isolated village in East Java, I moved to Bali to sell ice creams on the beach. Thanks to a lucky break, I was able to move to Yogyakarta after a few years to study English at university for five years.
For the last few years, I have been conducting tours of Yogyakarta, I am based at Tugu Railway Station in Yogyakarta, and I have really enjoyed meeting travelers from all over the world and have made some great friends

Discover Yogya Tours - Introduction
Yogyakarta ( also sometimes known as Yogya ), is located in the heart of Java, is where tradition, culture and modernity collide, making it a must-visit destination on Indonesian travel itineraries.
From quiet alleyways where life is unhurried to the bustling main street of Jalan Malioboro, every aspect of Yogyakarta is a treat to the senses.
While many travelers choose to see the wonders of Yogyakarta independently, I offer unique tours of Yogyakarta that can be tailored to the needs of individuals.
Some people travel to Indonesia for the food, sun and beaches and others travel to this diverse country to see first-hand aspects of its rich and lengthy history. While these things are easy to find, I help tourists see the things that most people miss.
Explore Java from the grassroots level, and learn what this country is really about. Along the way, you decide what form of transport you would like to take -- be it a comfortable car, a local bus, or on the back of a motorcycle. I can also introduce you to the culinary delights of Indonesia. The best food is usually cooked in the most simple of kitchens in a Warung, or roadside stall, but many visitors are reluctant to indulge in the unknown. Let me show you everything that is wonderful about the country I love.
