I booked spontaneously one evening before and DEKWAN wrote me a few minutes later regarding the meeting place for the next morning. He picked me up on time and the day was a complete success. He made an effort to explain everything to me and i had enough time at each attraction to explore everything. Especially the "bathing" in the holy water of the Tirta Empul Temple was my personal highlight. Dekwan explained to me how to do this ritual and it felt great. This trip is perfect if you don't spend so many days in Ubud and you want to see a lot of things! Thank you Dekwan, for this beautiful day - it was really nice to meet you :)

I booked a private tour, and I'm so glad I did. Pasek was amazing!!! from the time he picked me up, he had a warm smile and took his time to explain the history of each site we visited. I was made to feel extremely comfortable, which is a bonus when travelling solo.. The day was amazing, and I enjoyed every part of the trip, including the amazing photos he was able to capture. I would highly recommend this company, and if you can request Pasek as your tour guide, we then you should. He's the best!

Everything was incredible! We recommend not just the tour but also our amazing guide Nata. He explained everything in detail, took stunning photos (a girl asked us if he was a professional photographer lol), and was very kind. Thank you Nata for an incredible day!
