This is a MUST DO experience if you are in this area of Bali. Our guide was AMAZING. He knew locals, off the beaten track sights and was really informative and engaging throughout. Depending on where you may be located this can be an early start but it's completely worth it for the things you get to see and do. The temple, jungle rope swing and cave waterfall moments will stay with me forever. Really good value for money.

Undoubtedly the best of the tour, your guide Eka Juli, in the car journeys he explained us not only what we were seeing but about his culture, customs and others. We learned a lot.

that was the best and funniest tour ever. Our guide not only supplied us with information, but also with his funny anecdotes. Thanks for the tears of joy.

We had Juni as our guide. Honestly he was so much fun and did extra effort with us. Showed us the local fruits and much more. Best guide we had on Bali.

I had a great day with local tour guide Subi - definitely worth the money.
