Private Ubud Full-Day Tour
USD 15.00
Overview

Immerse yourself in the beauty, culture, art, and history of Bali on a full-day private tour of Ubud and surrounding areas with a local guide to help you navigate cultural norms and customs respectfully. Experience spiritual purification at an 11th-century Hindu temple and  visit lush green  rice fields where you learn about the traditional cooperative irrigation systems used across the island. Skip tourist traps and the worry of navigating, adn leave the details to your guide.

What to Expect
You will be picked up from your accommodation by your driver around 9am for the drive to your first stop, Batuan Temple, where you'll arrive in about one hour.

This Hindu temple is looked after by the villagers of the Batuan countryside and features Balinese ornamentation with a roof made from the fiber of chromatic black palm trees. Then visit Tegenungan Waterfall, one of the few waterfalls in Bali that isn’t situated in the highlands or mountains. It's only about 50 feet high (15 meters), so you can jump right into the waterfall if you wish (only after paying for insurance). Tegenungan is known for its lush green surroundings and heavy water flow, perfect for swimming and cooling off.

Next, head to the Tegalalang Rice Fields near Ubud, where subak (a traditional Balinese cooperative irrigation system) is practiced. According to local history, subak was passed down by a revered holy man named Rsi Markandeya in the eighth century. Admire the view from here that spreads out to the rice terraces on the slopes across the valley.

After this, proceed to a coffee, cocoa, and tea plantation in Ubud, where Luwak coffee is made from the beans of coffee berries that have been eaten by the Asian palm civet, a cat-like animal, and passed through its digestive tract, where fermentation occurs. After the civet excretes the berries, they are collected by farmers from the forest floor for cleaning, roasting, and grinding, just like any other coffee. You will be shown the process of making this coffee and can enjoy a tasting of the plantation's coffee, tea, and cocoa drinks (included, except for the Luwak, which you can purchase).

Continue your day trip to the Ubud art villages to learn about the fine arts produced here. Balinese art and crafts have been classified into several groups and styles in Ubud. Mas focuses on the art of woodcarving; Celuk is the place to see patient Balinese artists make silver jewelry, and Tohpati is known as the center of batik weaving.

Your day trip ends with the return to your hotel for the drop-off in the evening. Have a great journey on the island and be sure you attain what is referred to as quintessential tropical joy.

Following the motto “Excellent holiday creating once in a lifetime experiences every time.“

The driver I had was more than happy to stop at any point along the trip. Although he recommended getting something to eat at a restaurant at the elephant cave (which was part of the tour). Hope this answers your question!
