I really enjoyed this tour which was a bit different than the normal tours you can book in Bali. My guide and host Karba John picked me up at Sidemen and from there we went to the different stopping points. He explained a few things about the sightseeing stops and the overal culture of Bali. He also made sure I could do the rafting in the afternoon and he dropped me off at my new stay in Ubud. It was a lovely, entertaining and learning day. I can definitely recommend this.

Booked a 10 hour guide for 2 consecutive days. We got to decide where to go. This was a real treat. Our guide, Jay was terrific: knowledgeable, congenial, accommodating. We saw countless sites in and around Bali with both his suggestions and my choices based on research. Very reasonable for the price

We had a great day with our guide Suri. As we had been to Bali several times before we had a very specific Agenda with a few things we hadn't seen before and he combined the wishlist to a fantastic route.

A great day exploring south Bali with a terrific guide, Jay! He was professional, courteous and friendly, and a wonderful driver in the crazy traffic. We’d request him again in a heartbeat.

Driver, Jay, was punctual and congenial. Spoke excellent English. Helped us choose sites to go to. Good pace.
