We had a great tour with our guide, karma, who took us through the unesco heritage sites of Bali. Our guide Karma also took us to a traditional marketplace after the tour as we were interested in local fruits that we are unable to get at home. We greatly appreciated the chats in the car on the way to the various locations as Karma shared his experiences and knowledge of local culture as well as social and political structures which provided a much needed glimpse into the daily life of the Balinese from a multi-faceted perspective that you usually don’t get as a tourist. 10/10!

Sekumpul is most breathtaking waterfall on island. If you connect it with many great landscape views, climatic temples and friendly guide with who you can debate for most of the trip about culture, religion and mannier differences and who will make that rainy weather will not destroy your trip - its a plan for one of the best days on Bali.

We had a great time and our tour guide was fantastic. He was very friendly and helpful and offers to take loads of pictures for us. The temples and waterfall were both fantastic, a must see
