Had a fantastic day with my wife, our Driver Jay was so helpful, looked after us & nothing was a problem to him. We gave him a list of what we wanted to do & he fit it in all in one day & lots of extra stops, doing other things we didn’t even know about. Cannot praise Jay enough , he kept us safe in the Bali Traffic & had a fantastic day seeing the island. The day was like being out with a friend. If you want to see the sights & spend time with a lovely man you cannot do better than book a trip with Jay ❤️

I really enjoyed this tour which was a bit different than the normal tours you can book in Bali. My guide and host Karba John picked me up at Sidemen and from there we went to the different stopping points. He explained a few things about the sightseeing stops and the overal culture of Bali. He also made sure I could do the rafting in the afternoon and he dropped me off at my new stay in Ubud. It was a lovely, entertaining and learning day. I can definitely recommend this.

I had Jay as my driver / tour guide the entire day. I did not have a specific plan in mind, but really wanted to explore Ubud. Jay completely customized my whole day for me and it was amazing. We got so much done in 11 hours. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave me great culture lessons. I can't recommend Jay enough. When I go back to Bali I know who to call!

This tour took the best part of the day and was really enjoyable. I was my own on the tour and was accompanied by a really friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. We stopped by lots of really interesting places. It was refreshing to not see too many other tourists and to be in places that felt really local and special. I highly recommend this tour

A great day exploring south Bali with a terrific guide, Jay! He was professional, courteous and friendly, and a wonderful driver in the crazy traffic. We’d request him again in a heartbeat.
