I enjoyed this tour. Watching the Kecak traditional Balinese dance performance was a unique experience and a must do in Bali. And the sunset views from the Uluwatu temple was breathtaking, just always keep your belongings close and out of reach from monkeys! My driver Agus is very professional, friendly, and accommodating. He showed up early to pick me up and knows all the shortcuts to avoid traffic. He also takes great photos! Dinner at Jimbarab Bay was optional but Agus took me to a nice place where I could try grilled fish and have dinner at the beach. Overall, going on this tour was a great way to spend my last night in Bali.

My driver Rudy made sure to play the music that I want to listen to. He was funny and told us about things we drove past and guided me nicely through the temple grounds and took pictures of me. He was also ready to chase monkeys away if they became too aggressive. Rudy found a really good spot for me at the Kesac show. The show was exciting and humorous. Unbelievable that the men who 'sang' could do it for a whole hour. I can recommend going on this trip.

Nyoman was a great guide. he picked up us at time. uluwatu temple was great and we felt safe with our guide from the monkeys :)) also for kecak dance we didnt wait on line to buy ticket, nyoman solved that for us. we just enjoyed our trip and time. i suggest everyone this tour
