In sum the whole trip was great and very well organised. First we visited Lake Bratan & the famous Handara Gate. It was really interesting to explore the north part of Bali, as it is quite different from the more touristic areas. I enjoyed the view of the lake and mountains, also later the Waterfall, which was an unforgettable experience. Even though it was raining on that day, it didn't got in my way to enjoy the nature around the Waterfall. I took a lot of amazing pictures, also thanks to my guide Suker, who took most of them. Suker is super kind, polite and a well informed guide who is always eager to make you feel most comfortable. I really appreciate the whole trip and can definitely recommend it, especially when you travel solo.

Timmy was an amazing guide! Not only was he very knowledgeable about the history and culture here in Bali, he was also very friendly and happy. My husband and I really enjoyed spending our day with him as our tour guide. Also, one of the attractions that were listed on our tour was unfortunately closed due to the pandemic, but he brainstormed a couple attractions that he thought we may enjoy and it ended up being one of our favourite activities of the day! Highly recommend Timmy (also his photography skills are great!!)

Strawberry was a great guide! He was knowledgeable, funny, answered all my questions great and spoke English very well! The tour was jam packed, we saw the temple on Bratan lake, the twin waterfalls, Handara Gate and we went to the lake viewpoint which was beautiful. He also took the most amazing pictures for me which was really appreciated as a solo traveller. Highly recommend this tour and will definitely book with Strawberry again in the future!

I had a tremendous trip. Putu and Wayan were tremendous driver/guides - very friendly and informative. As I was a solo traveller they allowed me to determine my itinerary. They were very helpful at all my stops, helping me take pictures and allowing me to determine how long I wanted to stay before moving on. They were just excellent and we had so much fun in our travels.

It was absolutely amazing, I would definitely recommend it to everyone whom wants to do this as a once in a lifetime experience
