One of a kind experience to witness the kecak ritual dance. Mesmerising and entertaining at the same time. Our driver Putu kupit is also very accommodating to our request when we want to rush on some things along the way. He is doing his best to make the tour more informative by describing and explaining different buildings that we passed thru along the way.. I would definitely recommend him to be the tour guide for this activity.
