Bello was a really wonderful guide for our day tour. All the attractions were lovely to visit and Bello was super helpful along the way. He offered a unique insight and perspective on some of the locations as well as explaining some local balinese traditions. It felt like we were getting the inside scoop at all the places, he also knew the best photo opportunity spots and he timed the different activities in a way that we would encounter less tourists. These spots are all typical tourist spots but Bello made it feel special!

Picked up from hotel as scheduled. Arrived in good time for the boat trip to the island. Very comfortable crossing. Picked up and transferred to Lembongan water sports who organised us into our groups very efficiently. There were about 20 in our bleat which was fine. Visited 3 snorkelling sites. No mantas at the first but then amazing corals and fish at the other 2. Best snorkelling I’ve ever done. Then back for a nice lunch before kayaking through the mangroves before the trip back to Bali. Excellent day out

Very flexible and accommodating guide as we added two people on short notice. Knowledgeable and friendly. We all enjoyed our experience with Andina!

We had a great experience. The driver was early and we made it to the airport on time.

Pick up was on time, boarding efficient, arrived in 2.5 hours without problems.
