The 'Eat Pray' tour was a lovely, enjoyable and soulful experience. We started with a stroll, seeing the green and mountains of Ubud. Then to yoga, a lovely way to initiate the day. A beautiful flowing class with teacher Sandy. The studio overlooked green hills which nicely added to the morning practice. The Hindu water temple was an extraordinary experience, I felt cleaned inside and out. I am really grateful for the experience.☺️ Finally, the session with the fortune teller/ healer. He and his spouse were warm, lovely people and like a true guide otherwise, healer he sought out meaning. It was an exchange rather than just a fortune reading. My guide Mr. Iwayan Kar was kind, chivalrous and professional. He kindly shared information about Hindu and Balinese culture. His passion and pride in his culture was lovely to see. Every location we went to he was able to impart knowledge about. Mr. Kar was also a safe, good driver that was familiar with scenic, less crowded routes.

Was a great experience from start to finish, only a 15/20 ride from the centre of Ubud it was the perfect activity to do if visiting the area. You were involved in the process from start to finish with help from the experts at the studio. Had the choice of a ring, necklace pendant or earrings. Would without a doubt recommend.

He will do maybe most of the work, so be prepared to sit and watch a lot! But in my opinion it's to your benefit because the carving comes out much better than you could have done it, my side was clearly done by me. Left class with a piece made by myself and a local balinese artisan, satisfied.

This tour was so great and relaxing My guide Awajan Kan was so helpfull and kind! I would recommend this tour if you want to feel spiritual side of Bali and to totally relax! I am so greatfull for this experience

We prepared a delicious meal in a beautiful setting
