The yoga was very eye opening and thought provoking. I was able to practice more flexibility. The whole entire day was awesome. From visiting the temple to the aura cleansing I was amazed. The monkey forest was the cherry on top of it all because it was a great ending to the day. My tour guide was amazing and filled with knowledge for sure. I am grateful to have had this as my first tour for my vacation. Definitely set the bar pretty high for what’s to come.

Booked a 10 hour guide for 2 consecutive days. We got to decide where to go. This was a real treat. Our guide, Jay was terrific: knowledgeable, congenial, accommodating. We saw countless sites in and around Bali with both his suggestions and my choices based on research. Very reasonable for the price

We had a great day with our guide Suri. As we had been to Bali several times before we had a very specific Agenda with a few things we hadn't seen before and he combined the wishlist to a fantastic route.

This was a good idea to have a seamless entry into Bali and to my hotel. Definitely did what needed to be done.

Great fun, well looked after park and friendly staff. Would reccomend
