    Not very hard to get to waterfall that's not far out of Ubud or Gianyar. Good viewing platform above to get photos before going down to the base of the waterfall. Not very busy when we were there so it made it a bit more enjoyable.

    Climbed Mt Batur for sunrise. Got picked up at 2:30 AM. They provided breakfast at small restaurant before we started. They provided second breakfast at the top with coffee, eggs, toast, fresh fruit (not the normal banana pineapple papaya - but some more unique - mangosteen, and a couple things I can’t remember). Then we stopped at a restaurant for third breakfast - which was a huge buffet. Totally unexpected - or at least I don’t remember being told about it.

    On the hike, our guide - Kadek - explained local history, different plants, the recent volcanic activity and was generally a thoughtful and helpful guy.

    Then we went to the hot springs near Mt Batur which were great. Nice and clean. Other ones on the island not so much.

    As a bonus, on the way home we saw the rice terraces at Teggallalung. They were outstanding. Then as a second bonus, we went to a coffee plantation for the tour and tasting of about 12 different coffee and teas. We maybe got the two add ones cause we didn’t spend a lot of time at the hot springs.

    Kadek is a very professional driver and the best driver we had so far in Bali!
    He really took great care of us during our trip from Ubud to Pemuteran.
    We have visited many places on our way to Pemuteran and his suggestions for more sightseeing while on the trip were tailored to what we were looking for.
    Caring, good listener, kind and happy to answer all the questions we had about Balinese traditions and culture, his English is very good.
    He always gave us precise information and he answered very fast through WhatsApp.
    The car is roomy, clean and has good air con.
    We definitely recommend 100% his transportation services 😊

    Soma was the best tour guide! Took many photos for us and provides alot of information and history of Bali! You can ask him where to shop and he also lets you know if your getting ripped off by locals when purchasing things

    Totally recommend! We spend one day together on trip to Lempuyang Temple (gate of heaven), Tirta Gangga, Tukad Cepung waterfall. Everything was perfect, on time. We got cold water and cold towels after every stop to cool down.
    It was so easy to sightseeing when Artana knows all the places and the best stop for pictures. He is helpful and patient, happy to take you extra pictures.
    Also he can answer hundred questions about island, culture, living in Bali, what is very cool! :)

    Hands down the best tour guide in Bali. I've lived here 3 years and Bedu made my family's experience unforgettable.

    The E-bike made the trip so easy.
    Combination of roads, village streets, laneways & tracks thru rice padi's.
    A fair amount of uphill grades for the first half with the E-bike this was effortless, then came the easy downhill coasting for the finish run.
    The guides are very knowledgeable & made great conversation.
    The inclusive lunch at a local warung gave me the best Gado Gado! Usually a dish served at room temperature, but this version was freshly cooked, served hot...... yum, yum, yum.
    But, back to the goodtime on an E-bike....
    DO IT!!!

    I recently visited Bali for the 1st time and had a fantastic experience exploring the local sites with Nengah from Glamorous Bali Tours. Nengah recommended local attractions in the areas we were visiting which meant I saw so much more than I expected. Fantastic service and highly recommended!

    We had a 2 day tour with Joe as our private guide. Joe was amazing. He took the time to explain and show us true authentic Balinese culture, and the Hindu religion that underpins it all. It was great education foe my children as well as my wife and I

    We had many experiences with Joe but some of the highlights were helping locals in the rice fields, visiting a local home and local markets, seeing Mount Batur and the volcanic rocks, going to the Holy Spring Temple and understanding which fountains to use when there

    Joe also has a secret waterfall spot that is easily the equal of any I had seen in Bali and guess what - no one was there!

    Joe is a safe driver, excellent photographer, and very easy to get along with. We never felt rushed

    For me, Joe made our Bali holiday so very special and I cannot recommend him highly enough. 5 stars!

    Bali is a jewel to visit. Ketut provided the best way to see all the sites we wanted, with security and peace of mind during our honeymoon. Nothing was too difficult or too out of the way. Whilst providing safe personal transportation, he was all too happy to converse about his culture, customs and the natural surroundings. Ketut goes out of his way to make you feel like family.

    Our friends recommended Oli and his agency for our first time on Bali and we were not disapointed. Oli was such a great host and we very soon did not feel like we are with a guide but a friend. He organized day trips for us which were suitable for our family (parants and 7year old child). We felt great and cannot wait to come again and meet Oli and visit other landmarks that we didnt have time to visit this time.

    JJ took me from Canggu to Ubud and he was so attentive and helpful.
    He took detoura and added extra sites to see at no added cost.
    As a solo traveler he made sure I felt safe.

    Even after his tour with me was over he helped me with multiple things like booking the boat to Gili T and a ride to Praya airport at no benefit of his own.

    Would highly recommend to book him when you are in Bali.

    Made delivers way more than what I expected! I contacted him to hire his service as a driver, but in the end our group got more than what we bargained for: a knowledgeable tour guide with good English; he even bring Balinese snack for our breakfast and invited us for dinner at his beautiful family compound to show the real Balinese daily lifestyle.

    Made answers all of our curious question about Bali's culture/belief and sightseeing objects. As a driver, he's always alert and drives carefully but efficiently. He always shows up on-time, good communication, fairly priced. Made's hospitality is second to none.
