Do not hesitate to book! The name of my tour guide was Nuri and he was excellent. At almost any important site, he was quick enough to provide me with accurate statistical and historical facts. Due to unprecedented conditions, I was unable to enter the temples, but that did not stop Nuri from making this day trip memorable. He was kind enough to take me to other touristy spots and offered to take pictures at every moment. If anyone gets the chance to meet this guide or simply book with this tour company just know you are in for a wonderful experience.

I booked a private tour, and I'm so glad I did. Pasek was amazing!!! from the time he picked me up, he had a warm smile and took his time to explain the history of each site we visited. I was made to feel extremely comfortable, which is a bonus when travelling solo.. The day was amazing, and I enjoyed every part of the trip, including the amazing photos he was able to capture. I would highly recommend this company, and if you can request Pasek as your tour guide, we then you should. He's the best!

Amazing trip! Best guide I ever had, Anta was very funny, polite and helpful in every moment, explaining not only about the places visitited but as well about anything else along the way. Even more, he gives advices about local live and customs and very useful recomendations. A very good day experience exploring the outskirts of Ubud, in a a very comfortable ac car. I reccomend 100% if you want to visit Ubud and have a glimpse of the area and traditions. Thank you, Anta!
