A very relaxing afternoon/sunset. All questions about the island of Bali and the temple could be answered and currently there is little going on in the evenings, considering that there are hundreds of seats available, but only a few "front seats". I'm totally satisfied!

Dewa was awesome, one of the kindest people I've met, he will do anything for you and accommodates whatever you ask. Very knowledgeable on the temples we saw. Would definitely book him again. All round great bloke.

Excellent tour. Our guide Bello was excellent and showed us all the best sites and gave us really good insight into balian culture. I highly recommend this tour.

Nice tour with impressive places to visit, with excellent company Ketut Artawa, very professional and excellent driver Recommended

Great opportunity to experience Balinese spirituality and have some time for introspection!
