This was a nice experience. My cousin chose this tour and I was expecting bit to enjoy it but I did. It wasn’t the nicest day out, kind of gloomy and very hot, but nonetheless I thought the sights were nice. The tour said it was 8 hours, however it probably ended up being half that time (which honestly I enjoyed because I was very tired by the end of it).

This tour was great! Our guide, Bisma, was lovely - he was very punctual and couldn’t do enough to make sure we had a fantastic day. We wanted to find out more about the rice fields so he came with us and showed us the rice in its different stages, taking the time to explain it all to us. The waterfall was great, loved the temples, and had lunch in a really relaxing setting. We felt like we spent the right amount of time in each place. Thanks Bisma for a wonderful tour!

We wanted to see some of the cultural aspects of Bali and this tour really gave us an introduction to village life, local arts and crafts and the more mountainous regions of Bali. Ubud is still very tourist friendly, but we learnt a lot about hinduism, wood carving, and the art of growing rice! Our tour guide Sarwa was funny, kind and very knowledgeable, and he shared so much with us about rice growing, kite flying, and Hinduism. His information was the best part of our tour and we would recommend him to everyone for a good time and to really get to know Bali!
