Had a great dive trip here. Parented booked easy enough. Paid up in full on arrival. We go lucky and had a private diving trip in the end just us and a dive master. LocTed in the south east of the island. Easy access I’d your local. We had to drive 45-1 hour via moped from Ubud. Then 1 hour they drove us to the Mir north western coast port to start the dive. Headed off in a small boat. Every is set up for us, as it’s how locals earn pocket, so that was very kind. I felt bad for being lazy. Two dives on a gorgeous day. Dive master gave us a quick briefing before each dive. The view was clear and beautiful, for to see some lovely sites. Saw reef sharks which was fun. We both had. A great time and it was well organised by our guide. A spot do lunch at a set restaurant, which had a very limited menu, BUT the food was great so no complaints: cheeky beer before heading back to the dive site. We’ll worth it, and a must do in Bali. For me, the only reason to go to Bali is dive! Do it!

Amazing day! Review of Hire Bali Driver Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile we had an amazing day on this trip! Our tour guide was Gede and he was the best!!! He picked us up from our hotel and on the way to Ubud he told us about the plan for the day and asked if there was anything else that we’d like to do additionally. He took us to a jewellery village where I got myself a beautiful, handmade silver ring. Wherever we went throughout the day, he was always very knowledgeable, was telling us a lot about the history of the places and always had answers to our questions. He had a great sense of humour, was telling jokes and kept us entertained even when we were getting tired. He took loads of amazing pictures of us in the best spots! We felt like travelling with a friend, not a guide - we were always taken care of and supported. I would recommend this trip with Gede to anybody, whether a solo traveller, a family or a group of friends! Thank you Gede!

Loved this whole experience. Pick up advice was excellent and accurate was on time. Walk/climb up Mt Batur was hard work and worth doing but is not for anyone not with an above average fitness. I was lucky to get a trail bike ride half way up to the top (an extra A$35) or I would not have made it. Be warned :-) Hot springs were fun and stop at the coffee "shop" was good bit would like tio have been able to buy a coffee to drink. Tour Guide (Mr Boring :-)) was wonderful and very helpful and informative.

Though it was more expensive than I had thought, it was a good choice to go around Yogyakarta including Borobudur and Prambanan! An airport pick-up was really appreciated and the driver was good.

Comfortable air conditioned car with very good guide.
