Everything was right on schedule and very organized. Both drivers, Tutde and Jik Dolah, were very punctual, professional and patient. They drove me around all day and were very nice. We couldn’t go to Manta Bay because it had rained the day before, but they took us to another snorkeling spot. We went to the main attractions and view points on the island and they were all very beautiful, also very crowded. I liked the tour but I felt it was a bit rushed, although the drivers waited patiently for me at each stop.

My partner and I really enjoyed our trip and the views on Nusa Penida were incredible! Our guide Tom was so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and drove very carefully around the island (even on the bumpy roads - which there are quite a few of). He is also amazing at taking pictures and making sure everyone is happy and comfortable throughout the day - we would definitely recommend!

The trip is awesome! Ridic Kadek was a great professional, he had a great approach to all of us and his concern for our safety was amazing! We had a trip with photos from a professional. Maximum satisfaction. The trip is definitely worth it!

Ras was a wonderful guide with a lot of knowledge not only about the food but also about Indonesia. I absolutely enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anybody who wants to dip into Indonesian culture.

i loved it! i’ve never did an yoga class before but i just had to book this one! the crew and yoga teacher were just amazing. lovely people, lovely puppies and good atmosphere. i would do it again <3
