We booked two full-day tours with Kadek, and they were great. Kadek's English was great, and knew everything about Bali. We were uncertain about where to go, and Kadek took us exactly where we were interested. He was patient, humorous, and warm-hearted. He answered every question my cousin asked, it is great to know about Balinese culture. You would never... More

We have contacted Mr Kadek (I guess the responsible person) upon our arrival in Bali/Nusa Dua based on positive comments on Trip Advisor. The same evening Mr Adi, one of the drivers, met us in a restaurant in order to plan a full day tour and from that moment we were sure that we made a good choice. He prepared... More

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
