I was alone, but I was able to feel free to participate. Participants are three people, a family with parents and children, and myself. Traveling to Penida Island is dangerous because bike rental is narrow, so if you are new to Penida Island, we recommend that you take a tour. You can efficiently go around View Point, which is suitable for posting on beautiful Instagram. The organizer, Topan, was very kind to the guide and I was saved. There are many diving points on Penida Island, so I would like to go there again.

I had an amazing day with Edi! He drove me around to the most famous spots on the island. I got to go snorkeling, check out a beautiful waterfall, trekked through canyons and ate lunch in the rice fields! Can’t thank Edi enough for making it such a wonderful experience!

It was a fantastic trip. The guides were super sweet and very professional. Everything was planned to the letter, and everything was in order, which meant that you could enjoy the experiences even more. I would definitely recommend this trip!

Was a great lesson. Great teacher, and I was able to start surfing after the third attempt. Due to low tourism here in Bali, I got the lesson privately which was very helpful as well!

The rafting was so much fun! What an amazing way to see Bali. Our guide Yan was amazing, so friendly and helpful, couldn’t recommend more highly!
