The overall experience was wonderful. The pick-up was easy and prompt and they even took us to the market and while not all places were open, given it was the PM, it was interesting to see. The class was very informative, the set-up progressional and the food incredible. So many different dishes. They were very accommodating of allergies and vegetarian option was available. They also welcomed us to view their amazing family template.

We were picked up on time by one of the owners who gave us lots of info on Ubud. Very gracious teachers who stepped in where needed without taking over. Nice snacks, clean bathroom and wonderful art collective to see. Great experience and well worth the money.

What a great tour. Glad that our guide Edi warned us about the mean monkeys in Uluwatu so we were prepared! The Kecak Fire dance is outstanding and it was nice to have the guides expertise and insight to local Bali culture while we explored the temple.
