    Waterfall was amazing as there was heavy rain at night, rise fields were just harvested so looked miserable. There was also a visit to coffee farm which I liked and a restaurant with a view which I liked even more. While every attraction was really nice I didn’t have anything “wow” that’s why 4 stars. Maybe taking part in temple ceremony would have given me some spiritual experience. Driver was very helpful.

    I loved the day. I had an amazing tour guide. He was punctual, respectful and an over joy to be with throughout the day. I had the opportunity to visit two healers - one in the morning and one in the evening, visit fountains where I cleansed myself and then break for lunch. Dwipa - tour guide took me to the best place I have ever had lunch. The view was spectacular. I had lunch on a bridge in a forest. Dwipa (tour guide) let me change my afternoon plan so I could go see a second healer and then visit a beautiful rice field. I even had the opportunity to go on the famous swing in the rice field. All together a fabulous day. Dwipa was the best tour guide I have encountered. I do travel extensively.

We were completely immersed in Balinese culture and spirituality. Karma, our guide, took us to a temple where there was no tourist and showed us all the stages of purification and meditation of the Balinese. The meeting with the Shaman was very interesting and beyond our expectations. This day was perfect. A huge thank you to our guide, Karma, who displayed a big smile throughout the day and shared with us his big knowledge of Balinese culture. He answered all of our questions and made many recommendations to us. He is really the best guide we have ever known. Thanks to Karma and GetYourGuide for this experience!

Was a magical experience. The Yoga was in the most breathtaking setting and the guide Iwayan had so much knowledge from the moment I got into the car. The temple was an experience you will never forget!

Dharma was an exceptional guide, I was on the tour on my own and he made me feel comfortable and was very knowledgeable and professional.

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