Tour guide excellent but the bikes are dangerous
First the tour guide Supri was excellent. His English is fluent, comprehensive and with very little accent is totally easy to listen too. His knowledge is comprehensive and he delivers with enthusiasm and is a pleasure to listen to. Not only does he know his history but he answers questions about the Indonesian and Java culture, politics, religion, food and much more with his own personal examples. Top rate.
The tour was pretty good as well. Maybe a bit too long in the Bank Museum.

Second the negative. The bikes are totally inadequate and are positively dangerous. The bikes are, I believe from my observation, hired from some vendors who normally hire them to Indonesian tourists to cycle around a closed pedestrian square. They are 1950’s copy of the “bone shaker”. Very low non-adjustable seats, non-adjustable handle bars, one brake, and very difficult to ride and control. These are not appropriate for the roads especially the bad quality roads, pavements and other places ridden on this tour.
Come-on Mr Tour boss, do the right thing. Invest in 2 or 4 mid quality mountain bikes, adjustable seats and bars, good brakes and 5 gears. And while you’re at it get some riding helmets. Then, with your excellent tour guide, you would be really 5 out of 5.
With decent bikes you could extend the tour to include the Istiqlal mosque and monument, some typical Javanese street food for lunch and make it a whole day tour.

Summary- fantastic guide book him without the bikes until the boss buys some bikes that don’t put your safety at such high risk.

Exceptional cycling & walking tour with Supri!
My partner and I had an absolutely fantastic time with our guide, Supri, last week exploring Jakarta. He expertly helped us navigate the busy streets of Jakarta on foot and bike. At all times we felt safe and cared for, with Supri providing us with a bottle of water and shade from the sun as required. Supri speaks perfect English, and was happy to answer all the questions we had about Indonesia culture and history - both past and present. I highly recommend Supri for any tours in Jakarta.
