A Perfect Day with Tisen Upon our first trip to Bali, we had Tisen, our driver take us to the icon sites such as the rice fields, waterfall, monkey forest, and the Bali zoo. We had a full day planned because we were only here for 1 day. Tisen did an excellent job planning this day perfectly and also included a wonderful lunch stop, local coffee and wood carving demonstrate, and other local, hidden wonders of Bali. He is an excellent driver, knowledgeable, friendly, and well spoken (English). I highly recommend Tisen for an eventful trip and beautiful memories.

My husband and I went to Bali for the first time and I booked our Bali full-day customized tour through Getyourguide. Klau was our driver and guide. We were picked up at our hotel, were asked what we would like to see and then off we went. We were taken to all the places on our wishlist and even places Klau felt we must see. We sat back and relax while Klau answered our questions and gave us lots of information. The tour ended back at our hotel.

Excellent driver/tour guide. Jay was on time, very polite, knowledgeable and helpful. We chose to go around Ubud, gave Jay the list of places that we wanted to see (he also gave suggestions) and planned the trip so that we could cover all of them within the time frame that we had. He patiently and expertly took our photos and provided a lot of information about the places we visited and of Bali in general.

Had the BEST day with our awesome driver Jay! Explored Northern Bali with a self-curated itinerary to Aling-Aling Waterfall, Ulun Danu Temple, Jati Wangi Coffee and a stop for rambutans and an overlook of the Jatilwuh Rice Terraces.
