Tri Jaya Tour & Travel was founded in 1991 by Diana Pardamean, who previously worked as a Dutch and English speaking guide on Sumatra for Dutch, European and American guests. Since 1991, Diana Pardamean and her husband, the Dutch historian Dirk A. Buiskool, and their capable and enthusiastic Indonesian staff have developed their successful travel agency Tri Jaya Tour & Travel.
Hotel Deli River and Restaurant Omlandia
In 2006 we opened our Hotel Deli River with Restaurant Omlandia. Hotel Deli River and the restaurant are located outside of Medan in a quiet area. We have a beautiful garden where you can escape the busy Medan and enjoy nature, flowers, and birds. The concept of Hotel Deli River is a small-scale, environmentally friendly family hotel.
I was born in Padang Sidempuan in 1962 and spent my youth in the beautiful old harbor town of Sibolga, near the Indian Ocean. In 1968 we moved to Medan. In 1980, in the beginning of the emerging of American and European package tour tourism to Sumatra, I started working as a guide. I learned the Dutch language from Dutch missionaries and I also guided Dutch tourists. In 1991 we founded Tri Jaya Tour & Travel, specializing in individual custom-made programs for small groups.Diana Pardamean
I was born in 1957 in Hoogezand Sappemeer in the Netherlands. After studying history at the University of Groningen, in 1990 I started working as a lecturer in European history at the University of North Sumatra in Medan. In addition to the teaching position, I have founded Tri Jaya Tour & Travel together with Diana. For our guests we develop various custom travel programs through Sumatra, including historical tours. Especially for these historical tours we wrote the book “Through historic Medan and its Surroundings”.
