Bali Must do!! Our guide Bello was out of this world. Always happy to help and snap some pics getting all the angles. Was very knowledgeable about any questions we asked or even just giving us information and history through the journey. He knew where to go at what times to make sure we got the most out of our time and made sure to keep us in the loop. Would totally recommend to anyone that’s wanting to get a bunch of things done in one day. Even though it was a lot of things nothing was rushed and Bello made sure of that. Would highly recommend. Especially Bello.
