This was my second trip with TripGuru. Komang was a great guide and driver! The cliff top views from the temple were stunning, especially for sunset, and the fire dance was good, albeit touristy as opposed to ceremonial. As long as you go into expecting a piece of theatre, then you’ll enjoy it! Be aware of the macaques around the temple, three people had their glasses stolen off their faces whilst I was there, and one macaque tried to run off with a woman’s handbag. I’d recommend leaving everything in the car before entering!

Very enjoyable afternoon, the show was really good. lovely views around the temple. Our guide Nick was lovely. Just be aware of the monkeys, they take sunglasses/hats/bags. We saw one today who swiped the sunglasses off the top of a woman's head as she was walking up some stairs. Very clever. Don't let that out you off the show though!

Very nice experience, the temple is located on a cliff and you look out over the sea. The dance takes place at sunset. We do think that a lot of people were crammed into such a small stage, keep this in mind. Otherwise a super friendly guide, explained everything well. Tip: watch out for the monkeys around the temple, they can easily snatch things from your hands (phone) or from your head (sunglasses/cap/etc).
