Our driver Budi (from Tour Bali Driver) is a lovely, friendly and tactful person. He gave information to us and answered every question we had...and drove carefully. We visited different tourist attractions like the Hindu temple „Pura Puseh Desa Batuan“, Ubud monkey forest, Tegallalang Rice Terrace and the Tegenungan Waterfall. We also had a beautiful view on the vulcano „Gunung Batur“ and the lake. The included lunch was rich and tasty. There was a large buffet…with vegetarian food, too. It was fun to had a walk through the little coffee and spice plantation. We tried a different types of included tea and coffee in a very nice atmosphere. And we tasted also the Luwak coffee by surcharge. It was a special experience. The tour included more feasible sightseeing points (like goldsmith), but we skipped it out, because we wanted to have more time at the other tourist attractions. We saw a lot of different places of Bali….and the tour was not that expensive. We recommend Budis tour! ⭐️

We did the trip today with Antik as our guide and had a lovely day. It was a really easy way to get a good feel of Bali in such a short space of time. Antik gave us as much time as we required in at each stop and we never felt rushed or hurried in any way. At each stop there is essentially ‘add-ons’ which you can choose to do such as shops at the craft demonstrations or swings/zip lines at the rice terraces. These are all optional but can be a good place to pick up some presents should you choose. The lunch was nice but the view really makes it.

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.

This was an amazing tour. Our guide Joe was so helpful and informative the whole time. He even took photos for us. I would definitely recommend booking this experience and hopefully you also get Joe!

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!
