          A very memorable tour with little kids
          We did a full day tour visiting sacred monkey forest, ubud City centre as well as Garuda Wishnu. It was a really memorable experience- specially because we were traveling with little kids. The pick up arrived promptly at the scheduled time in the morning and Our guide Sudi was very informative and helpful. Thanks a lot!

          Much better than touring with strangers!
          I decided to book this private tour because 1. I didn't want to visit any temples 2. I couldn't find any tour packages that included ALL the places I wanted to go to 3. It was slightly pricier than normal tours, but having the leisure to go at your own pace was worth it. I spent 3 hours at one location, and 15 minutes at another... The freedom to walk away and have a driver waiting is such a luxury. Shout out to our driver/tour guide Dastra, who was punctual and knowledgeable. I appreciated that he didn't chat with us all the time, so even though the drive was quiet at times, I really liked that! He also gave suggestions as we adjusted our itinerary based on the time spent at each location. The SUV was clean, and each of us had a free bottle of water.

          Fun trip exploring Ubud!
          My wife and I had a great time exploring Ubud with the help of our driver and guide, Yasmika. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about all of the places that we wanted to visit. We really appreciated his flexibility as well since there was some traffic and we had to rearrange our schedule a bit to maximize what we could see. Highly recommend Yasmika as your driver and guide, he will be sure to help give you a great experience here in Bali!

          The driver, Yasmika, was amazing. He advised us on what to see and explained about Balinese culture and costumes. We were able to see everything we wanted to and had overall a great experience. I truly recommend making this trip and Yasmika.

          Exceptional Tour of Bali's Temples and Waterfalls with an Incredibly Knowledgeable Driver
          We had an incredible experience exploring some of Bali's stunning temples and breathtaking waterfalls, all thanks to our amazing driver and tour guide Ardi! Not only was the journey comfortable, but the wealth of knowledge shared by our driver made every moment truly enriching. The explanations about the cultural significance and history of the places we visited were enlightening and added so much depth to our experience. We are immensely grateful for the thoughtful guidance and professional service. Highly recommend this unforgettable tour to anyone wishing to delve deeper into the beauty of Bali! Thank you Ardi!

          Our Guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour involved a lot of riding around but worth it. The buffet lunch at the volcano was excellent and included.

        This best of Ubud trip was spoiled by the horrendous Bali traffic and our guide allocating way too much time for us to shop, then rushing us at the temple and rice terraces. We never got to see the waterfall as we run out of time, we barely made it in time for the Monkey Forest, and the entire trip took around 11 hours! Needless to say, by the time we got to the hotel we were exhausted. Our guide, who is more of a driver than a guide, gave us around half an hour max at each site, with the exception of the monkey forest. I wish we had more time at the temple to admire the architecture and learn about its history. We did, however, have plenty of time to shop. You are ushered into extremely overpriced tourist-trap shops that use high-pressure sales tactics to sell you stuff ie the guide telling you this is a family or friend's woodcarving shop. This makes you feel obligated to buy something. You must haggle and haggle hard as the prices for the silver and woodcarvings are astronomical. We were taken to a silver jewelry shop, a woodcarving shop, a batik fabric shop, and a coffee/tea shop that sells different Balinese coffees and teas. I bought some nice things, but the shopping was exhausting, with salespeople following our every more. You cannot have a single minute to browse freely, especially at the jewelry and woodcarving shops. In retrospect I should have hired a private driver for the day and tell him exactly where I want to go. That would have been a much better experience. Also- no water is provided on this trip, you must bring your own or ask your guide to stop so you can buy some. A microscopic bottle of water given to you by a salesperson hoping you will buy something is not enough water for the day!

        Highly recommend doing this tour if you want to see the highlights of Ubud. It was fabulous having a private tour and we absolutely loved our guide, Yasmika. He has so much knowledge and taught us so much about the culture here in Bali. He personalized the tour based on what he thought we’d like and it didn’t disappoint. Our favorite part was the coffee plantation which wasn’t even on the original itinerary for the day. And he was an expert picture taker!

        Mudana our driver was very informative and accommodating. We took the Ubud day tour but the stops weren’t ‘locked in stone’ we didn’t want to go to the monkey forest so Mudana had other suggestions which turned out to be great.
        The only downside was that at the art and wood carving stops there was a lot of pressure to buy from the site hosts (nothing to do with Bali 4U Tours) so be prepared to stand firm. We would have purchased at the wood carving stop but the host didn’t leave us alone to look, we eventually got frustrated and left because of it.
        Lots of great crafts in Ubud on the way to the rice terraces so keep that in mind if you want to shop for something different.
        We also recommend stopping for crispy duck lunch along the way

        I was based in Seminyak but was keen to experience some of the sites of Ubud.

        Jumped online the night before and was picked up at my hotel the next morning by my guide Sudi and a driver Krishna. Both did a great job throughout the day.

        I was a solo traveler and Sudi offered to take plenty of photos at the various sites.

        Sudi was a tremendous guide and very insightful on all the locations, he answered all the questions I had about Balinese culture and Bali and Ubud itself.

        I highly recommend this tour as its an extremely affordable day out and you get to see some of the best parts of Ubud in a stress-free day.

        Tour of best of Ubud, was certainly well worth it and our guide Rio was very informative every step of the way, we started off with Arts villages and got to see how silver jewellery making is carried out and also got to buy some unique pieces. This was followed on by the Batuan temple, which was very nice. Again Rio gave us a good understanding of all the traditions. The waterfall was beautiful and a good workout, make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes, a lot of walking. This was followed by the Rice Terrace and then some time in the Ubud centre. All in all I would highly recommend this tour with Bali 4 U tours and especially with Rio, who was energetic throughout the day despite it being a long one! Will definitely use them for other day tours!!

        Highly recommended, and have already told our family and friends what a great tour we had with Juli, our tour guide.

        The booking process was safe and easy. As we’re travelling with our four year old, we decided to take private tour to discover as much of Ubud as possible. Juli was fantastic with our little chatter box who was so excited she talked most of the car trip.

        We saw amazing temples and sites that Juli was able to explain and answer queries, especially at the temple. At the monkey forest, Juli helped us navigate the paths and took many family photos. After the monkey forest, Juli found a nice restaurant where we could try some Balinese food and some chicken fingers for our little one. Lastly, we wanted to go on a rope swing over the rice paddie, however the line was quite long, so Juli took us to another place that was less crowded.

        All in all a fantastic tour and highly recommended. Thank you again Juli for an amazing experience.

        Incredible experience ⭐️ Darma was so kind, so helpful, patient and he taught me the history of each place we went to in an interesting way ( I still remember everything ). Darma was very accommodant too when I wanted to spend more time in a place than another. We saw amazing landscapes and went to waterfall, art villages , temples, rice terrace, monkey forest and ubud center… I recommend a 100% 🙏🏽

        We had a great, busy, fun but relaxed day around Ubud. We first visited the monkey forest temple, Rio our guide thankfully made us all feel safe and comfortable around the monkeys he had lots of facts about them and the temple there. We then went to Puseh Batuan temple, our guide shared about the celebrations they have there and information about the statues. Next we went to the coffee plantation and tried all different coffees and teas! Coconut coffee is a must try! Rio then took us to a lovely restaurant where we had lunch overlooking the rice fields. After lunch we stopped at the Waterfall and had a swim, which was beautiful but quite touristy (Rio had warned us about this already)and lots of steps to get there. Finally we stopped at the rice terrace fields and took in the amazing views, learning about the old techniques still used by the locals. It was a jam packed day but Rio worked around us and we could spend less or more time at whichever places we preferred. He was very fun and chatty and was more than happy to answer any questions we had, he truly made our day as special as it was. As we had already seen the art villages we swapped it out for the coffee plantation when booking and the company were really flexible with this.

        We had a great day out with Raka. We have done a few of these types of day tours in various Asian countries and Raka was really good tour guide. He is a safe and smooth driver, he also has a great sense of humour, speaks English well, and adjusted the tour itinerary as the day played out to suit our interests.

        Very nice tour with punctual pickup, good suggested itinerary with enough flexibility built in. We ended up doing the coffee tour which was worth it, along with the temple, batik village, rice terraces, monkey village, etc. we declined their suggested lunch in favor of our own find (Wedja) which was very very nice. Comfortable car, good aircon- 5/5 stars! Thanks Gede!!!!! Great day seeing everything we wanted to see in Ubud.
