We had a great trip with Ari, who was a really good driver. He drives safe and well and it is clear that he knows the places. He was really friendly, smiling and very welcoming and a really good guide. In addition to telling about the places we visited, he also told many things about Indonesia - both historically, culturally and religiously. There was a really relaxed and good vibe throughout the trip, and all the places - from waterfalls to rice fields - were lovely. And yes, Bali is a beautiful country and absolutely magical when you enter the jungle on this trip. We can only give our best recommendations to Ari

This was a great experience from start to finish. The locations were very well chosen and our tour guide was knowledgeable on all topics a part of the tour. My partner and I had a wonderful time and it was a pleasure to see and learn more about balinese culture. I definitely would recommend this to anyone interested!

We had such a blast on our tour with Yusa! Yusa was so friendly and easy going, and was super amendable during our tour, especially considering I’m terrified of monkeys but still wanted to experience the sacred monkey forest, lol! Thanks for everything! Totally recommend!

Wonderful experience! Our driver and guide Darma was excellent. He was prompt and very kind. He shared lots of interesting information and we went to a lot of beautiful places. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone in the area!
