Bello was a really wonderful guide for our day tour. All the attractions were lovely to visit and Bello was super helpful along the way. He offered a unique insight and perspective on some of the locations as well as explaining some local balinese traditions. It felt like we were getting the inside scoop at all the places, he also knew the best photo opportunity spots and he timed the different activities in a way that we would encounter less tourists. These spots are all typical tourist spots but Bello made it feel special!

Picked up from hotel as scheduled. Arrived in good time for the boat trip to the island. Very comfortable crossing. Picked up and transferred to Lembongan water sports who organised us into our groups very efficiently. There were about 20 in our bleat which was fine. Visited 3 snorkelling sites. No mantas at the first but then amazing corals and fish at the other 2. Best snorkelling I’ve ever done. Then back for a nice lunch before kayaking through the mangroves before the trip back to Bali. Excellent day out

The experience was great for us. We actually simply needed to move hotels from Ubud to Nusa Dua, with a diversion to spend enough time in Tanah Lot. Our driver was great, very kind, friendly and with positive attitude. Great English too. He accompanied us and also offered to take photos of us. During the trip, he was happy to discuss and share information about the Balinese culture. Generally we spent an enjoyful half-day. Would book again.

We had a great time with Nyoman. The snorkeling and canyoning was great. He recommended a very nice restaurant to have lunch. We had a wonderful time. He is friendly and took care of us. Thank you for a great experience!

Great tour guide/driver, fun filled day. Would highly recommend
