Nyoman picked us up in time and adjusting to our personal requirements. Snorkling experience was amazing. The driver also acted as your guide. He was curtious and knowledgable of the local areas. Due to weather he gave us other options instead of Canyoning. He waited patiently to our schedule. The lunch place at warrung was really good.

Great day out, adult kids went off to do all the rides while I relaxed in close proximity to the swim up pool bar and enjoyed the sunshine. if you can book a cabana around the big pool number 7-11 great spot to be and full on shade. highly recommend day out at Waterbom

The whole tour was amazing! Definitely worth it. Our Guide ‘Bello’ was amazing and shared so much about the culture and area. He was also an amazing photographer and made sure we made the most amazing memories!

Gusti was a great guide - had a lovely day visiting some of Ubud’s top destinations. Thank you
