Next, visit one of the few places in Bali that can compete at the Gunung Kawi Temple. Learn about how it's one of the island’s oldest monuments, a must to experience the history and culture of Indonesia.

Bali: Archeological Museum & UNESCO Temples Private Tour

Head north from Ubud on this private full-day trip to Tukad Pakerisan in Tampak Siring, listed as one of UNESCO World Heritage sites. The city was the former capital of the Ancient Bali Kingdom.

Hear long-lost tales of forgotten Balinese kings who lived in an obscure but important period of Balinese history. The temples are believed to be constructed in the 11th century. Next head south to Yeh Pulu, one of several fascinating archaeological sites that you can visit in the central Bali highland village of Bedulu. Admire an impressive 25m-long display of carvings etched into a rock face, depicting mythological characters, Hindu gods, as well as people going about normal village life. Continue to Pura Samuan Tiga, a 10th century temple in the village of Bedulu in Gianyar. The temple dates back to the Warmadewa dynasty. The old temple is a great place to see ancient Balinese temple architecture up close. It features ornate sandstone carvings and majestic temple gates. The visit ends at the Bali Gedong Arca, or Bali Archeological Museum, which is an archaeological museum located in Tampak Siring Village. Tour the museum's collection of heritage objects collected over the centuries.

Were 1 week in Ubud, from here we were able to book many tours without having a long journey. Traffic in Bali can be very tiring, even if you don't drive yourself. We were picked up on time. Our group of 4 plus driver was super comfortable. Our tour guide Bello had approached the spots anti-cyclically, so that we could look at the waterfalls and temples in peace without a bus with 40 people wanting to go to the same spots. The waterfalls were gorgeous and we had the opportunity to swim in them - a dream. We continued to the hidden water gorges and that was a mega highlight for us! You could choose a tour of 1 hour or 2 hours. Here it is very important to take a swimming suit with you & we were so glad that we took our swimming shoes with us, because you had to climb in some places & the way to the gorges led through a brook with small stones. All in all great tour!

Komang has an exceptional character. He is patient and kind and has a wealth of knowledge and information about Balinese culture and history. A born guide and one of the best guides me and my bf have had in our travels. He’s not only a guide but also a great photographer. We really enjoyed the trip with Komang and would definitely recommend to a friend. The above led us to plan another trip with him.

Komang good was an awesome guide for this trip! The first stop in the hidden canyon was physically challenging but really fun. The rest of the stops were sites to walk through. Komang had a lot of knowledge about the places and I learned a lot about Balinese culture from him. Highly recommend!

Excellent tour operated by trip guru and Bello who is my driver cum guide is exceptional. he even took excellent photos of mine. thank you trip guru management Bali and Guide Yogi

Everything perfectly organized I can only recommend to everyone
