10/10 trip, 10/10 tour guide, Edi. Everyone we worked with was so accommodating and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. At one point, Edi threw in an extra stop on the tour just for an added Balinese experience. His stories and friendliness were unmatched and the tours themselves… stunning. The hidden canyon is one of the best experiences of our lives, although you should be mobile individuals (climbing, swimming, jumping). Highly highly recommend this day tour, can’t say enough.

Amazing day with Edi as a guide! Snorkling was great, we were lucky enough to see a few sea turtles and countless other species. After the waterfall, Edi brought us to an amazing place to have lunch in the middle of the rice fields. Finally, we went to the hidden canyon. Great experience but expect a lot of difficulty for non-sporty people! Amazing as a whole!

I had an amazing day with Edi! He drove me around to the most famous spots on the island. I got to go snorkeling, check out a beautiful waterfall, trekked through canyons and ate lunch in the rice fields! Can’t thank Edi enough for making it such a wonderful experience!

It was a fantastic trip. The guides were super sweet and very professional. Everything was planned to the letter, and everything was in order, which meant that you could enjoy the experiences even more. I would definitely recommend this trip!

The tour was great, very nice spots and good length of activities. Since we were alone on the tour there was a lot of flexibility. Our guide Topan was very helpful and answered all our questions, it was very informative!
