Superb tour!
Mar. 2020 • Solo
Today I had a private tour with Dewas, a very friendly and good driver. The tour was outstanding and completely flexibly fit to my wishes. I can highly recommend this tour if you want a full day of interesting sightseeing at all ease. Dewas is very knowledgeable of the area. Nice lunch included and even a visit to a local silver factory with nice jewellery.

Beautiful scenery and safe tour
My driver was Eka, he picked me up promptly and let me go at my own pace. This meant that we spent less time in the rice field and monkey forest and I enjoyed more time in the temples. Eka's explanations were good and he took lots of photos and videos when I was doing the sacred water rituals at Tirta Empul. I ended up checking out the coffee stop but I wouldn't recommend it if you expect seeing coffee and tea plantations, they are much further away and the Ubud stop is more about down info about process, trying and buying products. You can also see a couple of caged animals, which I'm not comfortable with. But that's got nothing to do with Eka's good service. I definitely recommend particularly as a solo traveller as it's a safe and easy way to travel.

Incredible Experience!
Our guide Lewer was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, gave us lots of time at each place, answered our many questions and made sure we had an all around good experience. The views were breathtaking. The drive around the island allowed us to take in so much of the culture through the small villages on top of the listed stops. We were lucky enough to hit it on a day when celebrations were happening so we got to take in a little extra. Well worth it!

Great Private Tour!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
The tour of the Temples and Rice Terrace was amazing. Ma-de was a great driver and tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and gave us nice background info on each stop. He went out of his way to even find a pharmacy for us since one of us had a cold and needed medicine. Definitely would recommend this company!

Monkey forest and temples
Jan. 2020 • Couples
The tour was fantastic including the food. Our guide/driver Mardana was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well, he even got a monkey to sit on our shoulders (without breaking the rules of the sacred monkey forest). The 2 temples were amazing and Mardana allowed us to take our time to get a blessing in the water and take photos for us. We also were taken to a silver jewellery shop along the way which broke up the long drive nicely.
