We had such an unforgettable day! We booked the private tour and wow was it worth it. Our guide Pande was absolutely the best! He was so friendly, kind and patient, explained and described everything and even shared with us his experiences. Would definitely recommend and do this tour again!

Great activity! We were very well received by our guide, Gede Susila. He made the visits really interesting by explaining a lot to us about the Hindu religion and the rice fields. We also visited a silver jewelry factory, a painting workshop and a woodcarving workshop. I highly recommend this activity and thanks to Gede.

were so friendly and helpful but abdi was next level! Funny, chatty, made us feel safe and he has an amazing singing voice if you ask him nicely :) he took us to the water temple, the rice fields, the bali swing, the coffee plantation and the elephant cave. All of which is a must see in ubud! We cannot pick a favourite but the water temple (tirta empul) feels most like real bali! Amazing!
