This was an action packed tour, giving a flavour of what Bali has to offer. Starting with the Monkey Forest which is well worth going to as it opens, as it was very quiet, just the monkeys for company…..besides my attentive guide, Anta! Anta even made sure I had a “selfie” with a monkey! After this, we visited an Art Gallery and then we went on to Bantuan Temple. The next stop was a Silversmiths with accompanying shop and then on to see a Batik workshop, ( I was disappointed that there wasn’t anyone there to demonstrate this skill due to the Kuningan Festival). Then it was the impressive Tegenungan waterfall. After a very busy morning, we had a buffet lunch at Batur Sari, not really to my taste but offers a fantastic view of the Volcano, Mount Batur. Our visit to the coffee plantation at Manakuya was really informative and I enjoyed the tasting session of all the coffees and teas that are available to buy. The final stop was the Paddy Fields at Kedisan.

We had an awesome day! Our tour guide Antik made all the difference. He was so kind, knowledgeable, experienced, and he spoke great English. He picked us up at 0830 and we first had an amazing time going from seeing how they make the sarong, then we went to see how they make jewelry with the silver, then to see paintings and a temple. We then went to see the monkey forest which was so much fun. We ate lunch with an amazing view of Mt. Batur. We then stopped at a coffee plantation and learned a lot of how they make coffee in Bali. They had 14 different tastings for us, which were all delicious. Lastly, we went to a waterfall for amazing views and swimming. Our tour guide was awesome and made the trip that much better! 10/10 would do it again!

I did the tour alone today and Anta was a great guide. After being on the coast, this tour is a good opportunity to learn more about Bali’s culture and traditions. Anta was very knowledgeable and explained lots of interesting facts about Bali, how people live and Hinduism. It was very nice to see the temples, local craft and beautiful landscapes. Anta is also a great driver in the crazy traffic here and I always felt safe. He was always caring about what I preferred and let me choose how much time I want to spend in every spot without having a strict schedule. Since I was alone, he also helped taking lots of pictures. I truly recommend this tour if you are in Bali.

I had a great half day tour with Ardika exploring local crafts, coffee, the monkey forest, and temples, all despite booking very last minute. He was so welcoming and informative and we had a great conversation throughout the tour. As a lone female traveler I would really recommend. A great photographer too ! I will definitely be booking with him again when I’m next in Bali. Thank you Ardika ! See you soon, Harriet

10/10 experience. What a wonderful day. Loads of beautiful places to experience, and a well spoken guide, Dwipa, that made sure we understood the history behind the temples, etc. He was also very helpful with taking pictures :) We had the bigger package, which we did not regret for one moment. The extra space in the big car was wonderful.
