I had a great time on this trip and it was all thanks to my guide, Nata. He knew exactly when we needed to leave in the morning so we didn’t have to wait long at the gates of heaven. He also helped me take great pictures and gave me interesting insight into the places we visited.

Our driver today for the East Bali Tour, Gede Susila was amazing. He made us feel so safe and had a great knowledge of all areas visited. He also went out of his way to allow me to have a coffee and took us to a lovely restaurant for food. He remained so polite and respectful the entire time and had such patience with traffic and queues. Would definitely recommend you having Gede as a driver any tour. :)

Nata was a great guide. He helped me find an atm as I had only recently arrived in Bali, he explained the significance of everywhere we went, and made sure my time wasn't wasted by arriving early to Lempuyang. The trip was seamless and relaxing. Thank you!
