Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s was beautiful show. Though in native language but their actions were so clear for us to understand. Great art work. Paper will be provided to understand the scenes.

The Barong and Keris Dance performance is a cultural Balinese dance performance of colorful costumed characters that tells a story of good versus evil. The music for this show is performed by live musicians using typical Indonesian instruments. The show is both interesting and funny with most of the comedy coming from a character wearing a monkey costume.
This show was a fun and interesting experience in a traditional Balinese cultural performance.

The story of good and evil and the fight between them. The Barong is a mythical creature (good) and it fights the Rangda a mythological creature. All done by dance and the dancers.

It is a great experience and they provide a sheet that will explain the story and makes it easier to follow. It is colourful and the dancers are great. You have to watch their fingers, arms, and eyes as they provide so much more.

Started at 9am with a pickup from our friend Agus with Sumberdana Travel. It was an amazing day of story and dance at the Barong and Kris Dance, 2 temple visits, food, coffee and tea tasting and a final rice terrace visit.

This traditional Balinese dance is one of many traditional dances in Bali. It is much cheeper to buy the tickets once you are there. This is like a short story stage drama and I wish the dialogue would have been in English so that the audience could understand the story better. Loved the dancing costumes and the dance. If you are in Bali this is one of the things you should do while you are there. Worth it.

This Barong & Kris Dance is basically showcasing Balinese culture through a story using wind & percussion instruments. The play will most of the time be depicted in Bahasa Indonesia so don't expect much. But then again, once you arrive, the staff would hand out an information sheet containing the flow of the story so you'll still be able to have an idea about what's going on. Personally, I really wanted to witness their culture of storytelling so I strived to watch the entire performance for more than an hour. But it would be just as fine if you miss this performance.

Dance is very boring and music is horrible basically noise, didn’t see any bits of culture in all this, waste of time and money.

Our taxi driver took us here, as part of our day out with him. Clearly he gets commission for this, and no doubt other places! Colourful costumes but the performance was dreadful, even with an explanation sheet in English. The ‘music’ throughout was repetitive and boring, as were the ‘dancers’. The audience started to leave after 20 minutes, we lasted 5 more!! Far too long a performance and an hour of our lives, we will never get back!
