We spent 2 weeks in Bali and had Kadek Poniel at Bali essential tours drive us around. Kadek went out of his way to take us to places we may not have had the chance to see and his prices were the best in Bali. Kadek is a really happy funny guy and we also invited him to have a... More

I have been to Bali many time and this is the first time I have used a tour guide booked prior to arriving from the Internet. I cannot speak highly enough of his knowledge and he just laughs all the time. Makes you feel comfortable even when driving over one way roads and back roads. I have had experiences this... More

Kedak was by far the best tour guide I have ever had, he had a great, friendly and positive attitude and kept us laughing the whole day. His driving style was speedy but also relaxed. he made sure to ensure we were always comfortable; and even stopped so we could grab some groceries. If you are booking any trips while... More

We have been to Bali many times and have used Kadek as our tour guide and driver for the past couple of holidays. (We wish we had heard about him earlier as we would have been using Bali Essential Tours on our previous trips) We find Kadek to be an exceptional tour guide who certainly knows his way around Bali...

We were extremely fortunate that Kadek was available to show us around Bali during our 2.5 day visit here. Not only is he very knowledgeable but he is a very safe driver. Kadek is extremely pleasant and was very accommodating to all our wishes. We were a group of nine, and it is not easy to make nine individuals happy... More

Just wrapped up an awesome day with Kadek on the Kintamani tour. All of the attractions were great but the experience was way more than just a tour. We learnt so much from Kadek, and laughed a lot during the day. It was just such a pleasure. I can't recommend Kadek highly enough. Just go with the flow, put in... More

We used Bali Essential tours for a 3 days for transportation for our party of 10. We had Adi for 2 days and Adi and Popol for one day. They are on time, polite and very good drivers. However, we felt that we didn't really get much information or suggestions from them. We only did one typical tour wich was... More

We had Adi as our driver, he's a lovely and knowledgable tour guide (and photographer). He provided us great flexibility - taking us to the places where we wanted to go and not making us stick to the designated route. Despite some terrible weather he ensured that we got to see parts of the real Bali as well as the... More
