    We had an amazing time with Iwayan Kar. He picked us up from our hotel to show us around a local market. He took us to his home, where we learned how to make coconut oil in the presence of his family. We then prepared a curry-based meal which we enjoyed together. It was a wonderful time and the best meal of our entire trip. We left with our coconut oil. It's an incredible moment, not to be missed!

    I was picked up on time and taken first to a market where the host bought some ingredients, then to the hosts home. His mother served me some breakfast which was nice. With his family we made coconut oil of course, but also a vegetarian curry dish which I really enjoyed. We eneded right on time, and he brought me back to my hotel. thank you for the amazing experience.

    On this tour I was with Iwayan Kar. After a very punctual pick up we went to a traditional market and then continued to his place of residence where the class took place. It was very interesting to watch the process of making coconut oil. At the same time, a green curry was prepared, which we later ate together. My guide and his family were very friendly. At the end you get the coconut oil you have made to take home with you. I, for myself, can say that I had a good time and got a glimpse into the life of the Lakal's. When I was traveling the weather was a bit unstable, so it made sense to book a tour that broadened the horizon a little and was independent of the weather. I've done a lot of tours in Bali and have been very disappointed (tourist rip-off). I highly recommend this tour!!!
