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

We were in Bali for two days and were fortunate to have Kadek be our guide. What a wonderful, funny, helpful, knowledgeable, sweet and brilliant young man! Kadek had the daunting task of trying to find things that would interest both my 19 year old son and me. He not only found things we both loved, he kept us laughing... More
