We booked two day tours with Kadek Asta, our driver. It was a stunning experience because while driving he explained us everything about their culture: from family life to marriage, jobs available to balinese, religion and hindu cast divisions. The day tours are exceptional as their are made in such a way that you tend to arrive to arrive early... More

Firstly, thank you to other TripAdvisors for posting positive reviews which made this our first choice for a private tour. With two days' notice, we were accommodated. For our tour around Bali, they suggested an itinerary, which we tailored to our own requirements. The driver had excellent English comprehension and a lovely accent (the word "barking" was a particular favourite... More

I have no words to explain how FANTASTIC Bali Essential Tours. I stumbled upon it thanks to Tripadvisor and after reading so many positive reviews I was convinced that I must write to Kadek- the name provided in the Bali essential tours website for details and costs. I wrote an email to Kadek at midnight India time and by the... More

I wanted to look around Bali and see some sites, given I'm female and was travelling on my own I was cautious with what and who I went with. I chose Bali essential tours based on the reviews that had previously been posted. I wasn't disappointed. I was picked up on time by Adi and he tailored the trip to... More

Bali: enganging, interesting, entertaining and beautiful. Kadek: intersting, engaging, extremely entertaining but no so beautiful. The full day we spent in the compnay of our driver and tour guide Kadek was so enjoyable that we booked him 2 subsequent times. Always on time, always smiling, always talkative and entertaining - as well as contuinualy educatuing us in the wonders of... More

Thanks to Adi for a great day- can't believe how much we fit in - Balinese music and Dance, monkey mountain, lunch overlooking the Rice terraces,art gallery, temple and beautiful views of the Volcano! You were a great guide, very knowledgeable and sharing with first class English! Would recommend highly a well deserved number 1 spot on Trip advisor!
