I had Cepot as my driver and he was just fantastic!! He was really funny and shared lots of great information about Balinese culture and history. I was doing this solo and really appreciate the great photos he took of me! This is probably one of the best tours you can ask for. You get picked up at your hotel and are driven to all the locations. You get a lot done in one day and get to knock out a lot of the popular destinations. The owners/workers at the stops we made were extremely informative and very obviously have a passion for what they do. Recommend for people who like learning or ones that aren’t spending a lot of time in Bali and want to see a lot; (and for everyone else too)!

Our guide Jo Jo was absolutely amazing! Not only was he friendly but he was funny, obliging, knowledgeable about everything Bali and it’s culture and enjoyable to spend the day with. Nothing was too much trouble and I have recommended him to all my family and friends in Australia. Having visited Bali many times, our tour was by far the most enjoyable. Love being back in Bali!!

Anta was my guide and driver and did the job expertly. I was amazed we saw so much in one day. He was very knowledgeable about Bali and I learnt a lot both about the things we were seeing and also many other things about Bali life. Anta is a very friendly person and as a solo traveller this made a lot of difference.

the trip was great. Our guide Wayan was very positive and excellent, he offered to take us to extra places on the way that were outside the plan. The car very comfortable too!

The driver / guide Anta is really helpful, always friendly and polite, with big smile, and takes care of everything and share stories. Highly recommended.
