We had a fantastic time. Our guide and his family made us feel so welcomed, and the food we made was excellent. Our guide told us a lot about bali culture and he even drove us to Ubud on the way back, so we could stop at a coffee- and tea plantation. We can highly recommend this guide.

Nachdem mich der Ehemann von meinem Hotel abgeholt hat sind wir direkt zu einem großen Markt gefahren. Dort konnte ich mich in Ruhe umsehen und er hat mir geduldig alle meine Fragen beantwortet. Danach sind wir dann zu seinem Haus gefahren. Dort habe ich dann seine Ehefrau, seine Mutter und einen seiner Brüder kennengelernt. Wir haben zusammen das Essen vorbereitet und dann gemeinsam gekocht. Es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und hat unglaublich lecker geschmeckt. Mir wurde viel über die Traditionen und Gewohnheiten auf Bali erzählt. Wir haben uns gut unterhalten und sehr viel Spaß gehabt. Es war eine tolle Erfahrung und definitiv eines meiner Highlights während meines Urlaub hier auf Bali.

An incredible authentic experience. Our guide, Sumi, was very welcoming to his village. He gave us a brief tour before welcoming us into his home. His wife greeted us with coffee and some local delicacies. The menu and processes were explained to us before we began cooking. Sumi gave great demonstrations before allowing us to try the process ourselves. The private class was perfect as we were able to cook each dish ourselves. The food was delicious and at a perfect spice level for us, as Sumi was conscious not too add too much chilly. A fantastic meal, shared with his family in the most incredible setting. I highly recommend this experience.
