Bisma was the best! If you can get a tour with him, try to. He was super personable and really just a sweet person for my boyfriend and I to share the day with. He allowed us to go through all of the different spots at our own pace which was really nice and he was super helpful in educating us about the magic of Bali. All of the temples are incredibly beautiful and worth seeing. Highly recommend this tour again.

Thank you Pande for a great trip! Since it was low season it was a private tour, so I got to stay at each place for a long time and soak in every location's beauty. Every temple has a great story and Pande was able to answer all of my questions. Pande was able to take some of the best pictures of myself that I've ever gotten! Would recommend.

I really can recommend this tour. I had such a great time and the tour guide Pande was really nice and friendly. He showed me everything and told me very interesting things about the religion and culture. All in one was really good and also very special, because it isn’t a big group, it was a private tour which was very unique.

We liked it very much. Recommendable. You should definitely take a sun hat with you. I had none and in the evening a mighty sunstroke with all the trimmings.

We had a great time and saw some beautiful temples. Our tour guide Pande was amazing - very knowledgable, and patient.
