Kadek helped us pick which activities were worthwhile doing and he organized everything! We spent one day touring around Bali, taking in the sites and getting the cultural experience. Kadek then organized everything for the day in which we... More

We went on a tour yesterday. It was a really interesting and fun packed day. Our driver was Kadek. He is a lovely chap with an infectious laugh. He told us lots of information about Bali and the people and the Balinese culture. We saw a Barong dance, monkey reserve, rice terraces, Ubud, volcano, a wood factory, silver jewellery makers,...

We wanted something different that wasn't the standard touring as well as being pushed for time. Having contacted the company, Asta then took us on a fantastic half day to see many sights, some standard and some that were not so standard. Asta was very informative, gave us a run down of the transitions of Bali and was very attentive.... More

We booked a full day trip with only a couple of days notice and Kadek was able to accommodate for us! We had Popol as our driver, he was great and knew all the best spots for views and to take photos! We saw several temples, waterfalls, went to the Monkey forest of Sangeh, the hot springs, rice fields and... More

We had a wonderful day trip. We saw the traditional Balinese dance, visited the rice terraces and the volcano, stopped over at an wood factory and an art gallery, visited a coffee plantation and finally had time to see the springs temple. Our driver, Adi, was excellent, polite and answered all our questions. I do recommend this company.

While in Bali, we wished to see a little bit more of this lovely Island but I hadn't booked anything in advance. I looked up tour operators on trip advisor and found Bali Essential Tours and the reviews were good. I emailed Kadek at approx.11.30pm and was surprised to get an answer straight away and arranged a driver and car... More

First of all our tour was spontaneous, I did not plan in advance and Kadek got back to me immediately with suggestions and ideas, he was very flexible and the schedule. We settled in our itinerary, Asta collected us punctually and was welcoming and friendly. We felt very safe... More

We booked on a full day tour and received excellent advice from Kedak the organiser about where to go. Our tour guide Adi was very pleasant and answered all of our questions.
