Sumadi delivers! This walk provides around four hours commentary on an extensive range of birds, snakes (the harmless kind), butterflies, insects, plants, skinks, lizards, frogs and other Balinese flora and fauna. Sumadi met us at Murni's Warung near Campuan Bridge Ubud and quickly sprang into guide mode, steering us around various birds and butterflies throughout the ravine that backs onto... More

My husband and I met Wayan Sumadi (Su) by Murni’s Warung (Restaurant) just before 9 am. There was one other client, an avid birder, making it a group of four. We went inside the restaurant where we had a great view of a gorge. She provided binoculars and we observed many birds flying by. From there we went on a... More

I did the basic bird walk which takes about 3-1/2 hours. Su is a ball of energy and knowledge. She introduces you to local birds, bugs of all sorts, plant life (edible, medicinal etc.), the subak system in some detail and much more. You meet rice farmers, drink fresh coconut water, snack on Bali sweets and fruits. The trek is... More

Su, the guide is amazing - so knowledgable whether birds, butterflies, flowers or local customs with boundless enthusiasm which never wavers during the whole 4 hour walk. It's not just for serious twitchers but anyone who has an interest in nature and wants to get out and about in the beautiful Ubud countryside. A delicious lunch at Murni's rounds off... More

Su is really very enthusiastic and kind lady. The rice fields is scenic but you see birds fm afar with binoculars and see normal butterflies/spiders which is quite common. Price is quite steep - not value for the things you see. Its very hot. So not suitable for young kids and older folks.

We were a group of 4 and our compliments go to Su for making our day truly memorable. As other reviewers have mentioned Su's indomitable spirit and astounding knowledge of not only birds, insects and flora, but all things Bali make this an extremely rewarding day. The walk ends with a lunch at Murnies with Su. Thanks Su for making... More

A grear way to spend a morning is to wlk through the rice fields with Su explaining the flora and fauna. You will see things you've never seen before. She's a real expert.

Of the many highlights of our visit to Ubud, this was a standout. In 4 hours of walking, we saw birds, insects, lizards, snakes, flowers, more birds etc etc. Sumadi could identify everything! It was hot and humid, but we had a refreshing stop to drink water out of coconuts -- freshly hacked into with a large knife -- served... More

This was the best experience we had in Ubud. Sue was amazing, her knowledge, passion and environmental awareness were boundless. I did this trip because it interested my husband but I was so glad I did it with him. It is a 4 hour walk through rice fields and natural jungle. It is not only bird watching but includes insects,...
