I had Cepot as my driver and he was just fantastic!! He was really funny and shared lots of great information about Balinese culture and history. I was doing this solo and really appreciate the great photos he took of me! This is probably one of the best tours you can ask for. You get picked up at your hotel and are driven to all the locations. You get a lot done in one day and get to knock out a lot of the popular destinations. The owners/workers at the stops we made were extremely informative and very obviously have a passion for what they do. Recommend for people who like learning or ones that aren’t spending a lot of time in Bali and want to see a lot; (and for everyone else too)!

our guide wayan rauh was extremely helpful and brought us to many locations during the tour! he was very flexible and brought us to additional workshops and locations upon our request, and helped to make reservations for our meals and workshops. we made many memories and enjoyed today thoroughly! would highly recommend this tour for a unique and self-paced style

Anta was my guide and driver and did the job expertly. I was amazed we saw so much in one day. He was very knowledgeable about Bali and I learnt a lot both about the things we were seeing and also many other things about Bali life. Anta is a very friendly person and as a solo traveller this made a lot of difference.

Everything was great. Dewa was friendly, helpful and punctual. He didn’t rush us for anything and we had plenty of time to enjoy all stops. The waterfall is gorgeous, the coffee plantation is peaceful and the tour covered all the Ubud highlights. Recommended.

We had a really good driver, Adi, who was very informative and helpful. He helped us with locals when they tried to make us buy offerings to the temples which we didn’t need. I would recommend this tour.
