May I start with the fact it was amazing, we saw a turtle and coffee plantation was wonderful, and so was our guide. But honestly I’m worried about what effect we have over the ocean there, me and my boyfriend gathered a bag of trash during our snorkle. And there is a lot more to go. I hope more people will do that, as it doesn’t cost much and it does a great deal for the fish who were trying to eat it, thinking it’s food. Why not admire the nature instead of destroying it? After all, we all live in it too.

We had an absolutely fantastic day with our driver and guide, Jay. He was polite, funny, spoke excellent English and shared so much knowledge about Balinese culture, history and religion. He had wonderful recommendations for the best places to swim and sites to see. He is also a great photographer! Knew all the best photo opps. The car was comfortable, clean and had fantastic air-con. We can't recommend Jay more highly. We will definitely choose him as our guide for our next trip to Bali.

Such a great day! All 3 stops were beautiful and well organised! My driver Gede was incredible! He spent the whole day explaining all about the culture and sights of Bali and was so caring and accomodating to make sure I had an excellent day! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an action packed adventure in Bali!

Our driver Putu Dibya was great! He was very friendly and looked after us the whole day! He took us to some lovely places for food and he is an awesome driver! Thank you!

Mardi was excellent. His knowledge and hospitality was second to none.
