What people are saying about Ulun Danu Bratan Temple

The trip was excellent, I really enjoyed the tour. The car was at my hotel exactly at 8:00 and I came back at 17:50 – perfect timing! Many thanks to our driver and guide Tawan: he told us lots of interesting things, provided us free time in the places, he was just fantastic driver during stormy weather conditions. And I strongly recommend you to follow the guide's advice to visit Tanah Lot temple first, because in the morning there are much less people there, while in the evening it could be no sunset at all due to the rain season. All the places in tour are amazing, I was very happy that I had chosen this particular program. Perfect combination of nature and cultural sights.

Yogi was brilliant. He had a trainee, Cynthie, with him and between the 2 of them, they provided an excellent, educating experience. There were 3 of us booked on the tour and we all had a lot of fun, whilst travelling between the sites. Having a common interest in K Pop between the 5 of us made the tour even more fun. The sites themselves were very beautiful. I can highly recommend Yogi, the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Small Group Tour, Trip Guru and Getyourguide. Excellent communication between all parties prior to pickup meant that we knew exactly when we were to be picked up.

The tour was all one could hope for! Arta even made sure the weather was perfect as long as the tour lasted ;) He was a great, secure driver that took us to amazing sights and experiences! Arta also shared cultural views and historical facts throughout the day. We can highly recommend this tour as you'll get your money's worth of "instagramable" experiences! Ask for Arta! :)

Very nice experience of walking in tropical garden (first time I saw cloves tree), swimming in pool lakes and sliding in waterfalls. The road itself is obviously exhausting.

There were a lot of dolphins! Definitely worth it to stand up to
