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)!

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.

Excellent tour. You will able to see most beautiful sights in Bali. Our guide, Agung Oka was the best in the world, super friendly, really kind, very patient, and he knows really good about Indonesian history and he is able to explain to you about the real history of his country.

Thank you so much pasek for an amazing day and being so much fun with my son and I! We are exhausted but happy after such a brilliant day explore

Excellent tour led by an attentive and friendly guide - sherif. 5 stars!
