About
My name is Kadek Sutisna and I would be honoured to drive you safely around my beautiful island. We are all so excited to be welcoming guests back to Bali. While some tourist places, restaurants and hotels have closed, many remain in operation and of course the cultural and scenic side of Bali is always there to enjoy. I previously worked for 8 years at the Graha Cakra Hotel in Denpasar as a driver and have been a freelance driver for 11 years. I am licensed and insured and my car is always kept in excellent condition. I am Hindu and can help explain all the customs and life in Bali. My family is from the North but I drive all over Bali, doing half-day, full-day and long tours involving overnight stays. Safety is number one and I offer, at no charge, Australian approved baby and booster seats and a rear facing baby seat. I also have a stroller at no charge. I am also vaccinated for Covid-19.

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.

We hired Kadek as a tour guide/driver for our stay in Ubud, as well as for our cruise ship stop in Celukan Bawang. He was punctual, responsive and a very safe driver. Above all, he was friendly, a joy to talk to and was very sweet to our four-year-old daughter. I really enjoyed spending those two days with him and learning about his culture and Bali. He's an amazing tour guide and I wholly recommend him. He helped to make our time in Bali very memorable and I'll definitely hire him again if we return to Bali.

Kadek was wonderful and always made our family feel welcome and safe! He was very punctual, accommodating and spoke English very well. He was happy to answer any of our questions and shared information about his culture and places on the island with us. My children adored Kadek and he has such a lovely nature when talking with children as well as adults. We highly recommend Kadek Sutisna as we now see him as family!

Kadek is Bali’s best driver and tour guide. He is so nice and kind and helpful and super knowledgeable about all places in Bali. I highly recommend using Kadek and his team when in Bali.

We were recommended to use Kadek by a friend while we were on Honeymoon in Bali and it was a great decision. Kadek was always early to pick us up at agreed times and he was completely flexible with our itinerary, always accommodating any changes we’d make. Kadek’s knowledge about Bali and all the different places we visited really helped us to get a deeper understanding of the culture, he was always happy to talk to us while he was driving and answered all of our questions to the best of his knowledge. His knowledge of all the roads was also very impressive, he rarely used maps while driving as he knew the best routes to take to get to most places in Bali! Over the 9 days we got to know Kadek well and his happy demeanour made him a joy to be around. We hope to keep in touch with Kadek as a friend and would not hesitate to use him again and recommend him to friends and family if they visit Bali.

Our driver, Kadek Sutisna, was just wonderful. He was always ready and waiting before we arrived at any appointed meeting spot, and he alerted us to his arrival via WhatsApp. He was always quick to assist with luggage or anything else we needed. His friendly conversation was winning, and he happily offered suggestions about possible sites to see. Kadek is a practicing Hindu, and he shared information about how the temples were used and his beliefs and practices. This made our visits richer knowing the use of the structures. His knowledge of how to get to all the places we visited was great, and his driving while getting there was very comfortable for us as passengers despite the often crazy traffic conditions. When weather conditions forced plans to be changed, he was flexible and suggested good alternatives. We were sorry to have to part from a person we felt had become a good friend. Obviously, we highly recommend Kadek if you need someone to take you around Bali.

Kadek showed us around Bali during our 4 days trip. It was an excellent journey with him. He shared with us a lot about the people and culture in Bali.

Additionally, he was also mindful about our requirements and timings (ensuring we not be late to reach places). Kadek is very friendly and every journey will not be bored. We will definitely look for him again for our next Bali trip.

Hi. We just finished a 6-days tour with Made Buchan, +62 819-3610-1957. The experience was exactly what we looked for: feeling comfortable, flexibility, knowledge, efficiency, humor but professional. We can highly recommand Made for a private tour of a couple of days, without having to wake up early, buy still seeing and experiencing a lot. And... he knows the best snorkeling places in the east. Thanks a lot.

Thanks TripAdvisor for recommending Kadek Sutsina. He is a gem of a person.

Hired him for 2 days for taking us around Bali. His English is excellent and we chatted for hours during the driving part of the trip on anything and everything under the sun. He suggested great places to go, and good places to eat. Moreover, whenever we visited a specific spot, he gives us a full summary of what to expect and things to look out for. This is really helpful in certain temple visit spots in Bali where locals can be a bit pushy for selling Sarongs etc which is anyway included with tickets. He always drops us off and takes us right to the ticket counter. He will take pics for you too if ask him to tag along. He was always very punctual for pickup. Never had an issue with him. He has a personal website you can contact him at balipersonaldriver[dot]com or ping him directly on WhatsApp at +62 819-1630-5884.
I am not mentioning his daily rates here as they would vary based on the time of year, gas prices, how long your daily trip is etc. But you can rest assured that he will give you a reasonable rate.
Do ping him in advance as you usually gets booked out. I will wholeheartedly book him for my next trip to Bali.
