What people are saying about Ubud
We received contact information from Kirana Tour the night before our booking. This had the name of our driver/guide, Mr. Turah, as well as his phone number. He arrived on time and we sat down to discuss where we wanted to go. He looked up all the distances to see which route would be best. Mr. Turah drove a comfortable van and spoke fairly good English. We loved the lunch spot he chose for us, with scenic views of a rice paddy. The food was good, too. This was a good value for the money. We decided to stop about 2 hours early because we were hot and tired. We were able to see the highlights, but I will say that we did not get much guidance. In hindsight, we would definitely skip the commercialized Tegalalang Rice Terrace and go to the further, more authentic one instead. Wish we had known how "Disney-like" it was. Would also do the swing at Gunung Kawi instead of at the rice terrace. Overall, a good experience.
I loved the day. I had an amazing tour guide. He was punctual, respectful and an over joy to be with throughout the day. I had the opportunity to visit two healers - one in the morning and one in the evening, visit fountains where I cleansed myself and then break for lunch. Dwipa - tour guide took me to the best place I have ever had lunch. The view was spectacular. I had lunch on a bridge in a forest. Dwipa (tour guide) let me change my afternoon plan so I could go see a second healer and then visit a beautiful rice field. I even had the opportunity to go on the famous swing in the rice field. All together a fabulous day. Dwipa was the best tour guide I have encountered. I do travel extensively.
This is a MUST DO experience if you are in this area of Bali. Our guide was AMAZING. He knew locals, off the beaten track sights and was really informative and engaging throughout. Depending on where you may be located this can be an early start but it's completely worth it for the things you get to see and do. The temple, jungle rope swing and cave waterfall moments will stay with me forever. Really good value for money.
Our guide Bisma was amazing. He was very knowledgable and took the time to explain everything and was also interested in us and was very keen to learn. His English was excellent. He went out if his way to make sure we had a great day and took us to p on aces away from the crowds which you wouldn’t know about
The Lempuyang's Gates were stunning and fortunately for me the wait for a picture was very short due to there not being many tourists, I can imagine that the queue can be staggering at times and the wait a long one but there are shaded area to wait in
