What a fantastic day we just had with Asta our guide. 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

The car was very comfortable and had good AC! We were very grateful for the advice about where to stop for lunch and Adi didn't try to push... More

We booked Kadek for a full 1 day tour and had a really great time! We emailed him a month or so in advance and he responded quickly. He was immediately very flexible to our needs and requests to skip some of the places and replace them with others according to our interests. Kadek is humble, easy going and lots... More

That was our first stay in Bali and as we were short of time we were looking for a private tour that could us bring us to places we had short listed. Kadek was very quick to answer and the price offered was outstanding. Given the very good rating his company gets on Tripadvisor, we went ahead and confirmed the... More

It was our first time in Bali so we decided to contact a private driver/tour guide to assist us. Among all the drivers I emailed, Kadek was one of the fastest to respond and he gave us a more reasonable price compared to others. We requested an airport pickup then we went straight to a half day tour in ULUWATU... More

He answered all of our questions about the culture and things we saw along the way. He also tailored the day to what we wanted to see but... More

We arrived in Bali by cruise ship. I had arranged prior to the trip for Kadek to pick us up at the pier. He was there on time with a smile on his face. After dropping off our luggage we were off for a day of adventure! My request of Kadek was to take us to non touristy places. This... More
