It was a great day. I could ask everything about the island, the spots where we were, could take my time at the spots and I’ve learned so much about Bali, the nature, the culture, the Hinduism, the vegetation, etc. I can really recommend this tour if you want to really get in touch with the balinese culture.

The trip was great and visited most of the places I wanted to see. Komang tri was a very good guide. He was knowledgeable about the places we visited and was also happy to share how the people of Ubud live including religion, festivals etc. He has a good sense of humour and and is also a good driver.

I had the pleasure of being with Arlan today for my trip around Ubud, and I had a wonderful time! He was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, and provided interesting information about Ubud’s culture. This trip is great to experience, especially if you have limited time in Ubud!

Anta was the perfect tour guide for our Bali trip. He show us very beautiful places and told us everything about Bali and the culture. We had a lot of fun on our trip. Thank you Anta:)

I applied for a honeymoon, but a tour guide called ARLAN guided me very kindly and I was able to experience a wonderful day. Especially with temples,
