    A wonderful, and memorable, day from start to finish. We were picked up by Sherif, who was so lovely and chatted to us the whole day whilst driving us around. He answered all of our questions and we learnt so many interesting things. He walked us around the local market which was so lovely to experience, and offered to stop along the way into the village to take photographs. He was fantastic. Once we arrived at the village, we couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. We were welcomed into the village, and then into the family home of Sumi. Sumi and his wife were such good hosts. So welcoming and appreciative of our company for the day. They showed us around their home, welcomed us with coffee, and made us feel like part of the family. This experience was definitely one that I’ll remember. It was really special getting to share the day with a family as wonderful as they were; getting to know them as people and learning about their way of life. Left feeling so humbled. Thank you :)

    Amazing day to discover balinese culture. The cooking class was very interesting, I will do the recipes again in my country. It was also very nice to meet children at school and go to waterfall. Wayan is an amazing guide, he speaks with passion of Bali. Thank you for this day!

    Absolutely wonderful

    We were picked up at our hotel right on time and were first taken to the local market where we bought some ingredients to make our lunch.we then visited a local school who were all very friendly and happily to see us. We then carried on to our guides home and met his beautiful wife and family who made us a drink and showed us their house and explained all about living in this village and how it works ,after a long leisurely lunch we visited the bamboo forest where my wife and I had a lovely walk.Then on to a coffee plantation which was fascinating all about different teas and coffees and meeting the little animals who’s poo makes the dearest coffee in the world then on to the rice terraces this was very busy but loads to look at with a lot of fun activity going on here as well zip wires and high swings etc. We really had the best day and we were asked was there anything else we wanted to see before we returned back to our hotel and thanked our guide for making our most memorable day
