Excellent experience!! Once you get there, the first line moves very quickly but it is the entrance to the temple itself which costs 50,000 IDR per adult. Then, you enter the temple area which you can walk around beforehand if you get there early! I walked around in the dark after the show but it seemed like it would have been cool to explore before the show in the daylight. LOTS of monkeys around the temple - be aware! Take off your glasses! The Sunday I went had 2 shows: I purchased tickets for the 6pm showing but there was also a 7:15 show. The sun was shining at first and it was hot but it set pretty quickly. The performance was very cool and engaging and fun to watch. Definitely worthwhile!! They even give you a paper with information about the show's story and origin.

It was a nice trip we enjoyed all if it. Our driver Gusde provided us with the historical information about all the places, explained a lot about the Balinese culture and replied to all our questions patiently:) We loved our tour with him he made it really useful and educational with fun. Unfortunately it was very crowded we couldn’t long in the beach, but the Uluwata temple worth the waiting.

Easy and efficient communication and I was able to visit all the places I wished to go to. I was able to see so much of beautiful Bali after getting picked up in Ubud, visiting Tanah Lot, Uluwatu Temple, Jimbaran Bay and then getting dropped off in Canggu (per my request). A long but wonderful day!

Good organization, nice and friendly guide, overall a very pleasant short trip

Comfortable air conditioned car with very good guide.
