Our guide Gusde was fantastic. Very nice and helpful. And so patient when we took the photos. Hey also had a lot of information about the tour spots and about Bali in general. To the tour: the different spots where amazing and beautiful! We can really recommend it. At the waterfall are many stairs so you should better wear comfortable clothes and shoes. And in front of the waterpalace is a wild-animal-shop where you can take photos with the animals… it was a bit scary because there was also a big python-snake (free, no cage!).

We had the best day yesterday doing the full day Instagram highlights tour with our tour guide Joni. Honestly, Joni was the best tour guide. He picked us up on time and took us to the most amazing places. He took so many amazing photos for us that we will both treasure forever. Thank you so much to Joni for being the best tour guide. I would recommend asking for Joni when you book this trip as he is so knowledgeable about the local area and we have both learned such amazing things about Bali. Thanks again.

Iwayan kar was brilliant, very informative, he taught us loads about temples, about Hinduism and he showed us the entire rice growing process at the fields (which are massive, and a really good experience). Brilliant tour guide, would recommend 100%

Wayan was the most amazing tour guide and took us to everything we wanted to see on the tour list. The monkey forest, the rice terraces, waterfall and craft village were all amazing! The perfect half day experience!

Excellent trip to the main attractions of bali. Amazing and accommodating guide Karba John.
