I really enjoyed this tour. One of the highlights was Nusa Dua Beach, which was not overcrowded and was heavenly beautiful!!! Personally, I don't find the GWK monument as beautiful as, for example, the statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro, but that's a matter of taste. The GWK site is super interesting and beautifully designed. Overall the day was great and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone vacationing in Bali.

We had a wonderful day experiencing Ubud with our thoughtful and helpful tour guide Wahyu Pinatih. Wahyu was very informative during the elephant cave tour, shown us a scenic restaurant for lunch, and guided us through the temple. The Kekak dance wqs amazing and is a must see event! We throughly enjoyed sight seeing and hopefully will be revisiting ubud to explore more! Thank you Wahyu !!

Wonderful experience from start to finish Putu was my guide and I highly recommend him, he knew all the spots for great photo opportunities, explained the history, extremely polite and knowledgeable.

An amazing and immersive experience. We booked the first evening performance and were able to watch the sunset at the same time as the performance. I can only recommend to everyone.

I was one of the tour participants, but I am grateful that they guided me carefully. Although the guide was in English, I was able to speak in broken Japanese, so it was fun.
