Bali Eat Pray Love Private Tour

1. Bali Eat Pray Love Private Tour

Bali has a deep-seated and singular sense of spirituality that is instantly palpable to all who arrive here. On this special adventure, experience Bali from the eyes of Elizabeth Gilbert, who came to the island at the end of a year-long journey to search for balance and love in her life. Your journey starts with a walk through some of Ubud's tranquil and scenic rice paddy fields with your tour guide. This walk will let you enjoy the cool fresh air and the most gorgeous hillside views in the region. Then visit Intuitive Flow, one of the most beautiful yoga studios with a breathtaking view of the mountains and trees, here take a 1.5-hour yoga class. See the sun rising above Mt Agung in the morning classes and feeling it burn while saluting it, is pure magic. The class is also limited to a small group of 20 participants, giving you a more relaxing and peaceful feeling. Visit one of Bali's most sacred spots and bathe in the holy waters at Tirta Empul. Here, be guided through a spiritual cleansing ceremony by your experienced guide. After finishing the cleansing ritual, visit one of the most famous Ubud-based fortune tellers to complete your spiritual experience and have your life's questions answered. Your journey will not be complete without experiencing the wonderful life of plant-based wonders. There is no better place to have all this healthy, hearty and simply delicious raw and vegan comfort food in Bali. If you happen to take this tour on Sunday, you will also have a chance to visit Ubud Organic Market where you can meet the organic farmers that showcase their finest products ranging from vegetables, fruits jams, soy milks, nuts and chemical free beauty products.

It was an amazing and very unique experience. I am travelling alone, and this trip was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate the warm welcome and friendly hospitality of my tour guide Suker throughout the trip. He is very polite, knowledgable and shared a lot of interesting information about the culture and traditions in Bali. I enjoyed every bit of this tour starting with the Yoga session in the morning, meeting a fortune teller to the temple visit and rice terraces. I strongly recommend this tour, especially if you travel solo. It will be a memorable experience! Thank you so much:)

One of the best things I did in Bali, while traveling solo. What to expect: a day long learning experience filled with culture, traditions and the beautiful scenery of Bali. If you enjoy this type of travel, then you should take this tour. I was able to take part in a purification ceremony and I think it’s just something you should experience for yourself. Spiritual yogi people would for sure enjoy this. My guide was Iwayan Kar, he was great. Full of knowledge, recommendations and advice. To me, none of this felt touristy except for the coffee plantation. Enjoy!

Had a great experience on the Eat Pray Love Tour with my guide, Sumi! Friendly communication prior to the day of the tour with prompt pick-up from my hotel the day-of. Had a great early morning yoga session in a beautiful yoga studio in Ubud (get ready to sweat!), followed by viewing and learning about the rice fields in Bali. Meeting with the "fortune teller" was a great experience and left feeling enlightened. I finished with a wonderful massage and great spa (which I would recommend).

We had a very sweet and relaxed guide named uncle Sumi. We were very curious about the culture and he was able to give us a lot of information. We found the Tour itself impressive and very nice to have experienced once!

LOVED this tour, the palm reading -cleansing -rice fields and guide were awesome. Absolutely recommend.
