I had a wonderful time on my tour to Uluwatu. I really enjoyed the beaches we visited and the wonderful nature alongside the shore of Uluwatu and Nusa Dua. Because of the virus, I was the only person on the trip, but my guide Yogi was wonderful, so I had a great last day in Bali. He explained a lot about the culture and religion of Bali, he was very professional and always gave me as much time as I needed on my own to explore the sights and beaches, so I had a relaxing, yet educational day. I can highly recommend this tour anyone enjoying a mixture of cultural sights, nature and beaches.

One of a kind experience to witness the kecak ritual dance. Mesmerising and entertaining at the same time. Our driver Putu kupit is also very accommodating to our request when we want to rush on some things along the way. He is doing his best to make the tour more informative by describing and explaining different buildings that we passed thru along the way.. I would definitely recommend him to be the tour guide for this activity.

Tour was perfect for us and got us to many places in a day. The guide was great, prompt, a very careful driver, and worked out our intinerary. We loved the 1 mile Campuhsn Ridge Walk, rice fields, and Bird Park. We should have had a little bit of Indonesian $ to pay some small entrance fees, but our wonderful guide covered it and we repaid him in Dollars. Great Day!!

Our experience was phenomenal. Bali is a beautiful place but what made our trip memorable was our tour guide. He was friendly, informative, helpful as well as a great photographer! Thanks to our guide we couldn’t have had a better trip.

Putu & Agus were great guides! They were friendly and informative! They went above and beyond, giving recommendations and being prompt. I would highly recommend them as guides for any visit to Bali.
