        Great Experience
        We participated in this class our first full day in Bali and it set very high expectations for our trip. Tommy, our chef/instructor was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and animated. Would 100% recommend this experience. The food was absolutely incredible. Being non-cookers, we had no idea we were even capable of making such delicious food!

        Absolutely worth doing
        Myself and 2 friends did this and it was an absolute highlight of ubud. And also probably the best food we ate in our bali trip even if we cooked it ourselves. Really well run and excutued for cooking each part of the dishes we made. Plus there were monkeys climbing in the trees in the trees in the distance!

        With some reservations as to the cost of the entrance ticket
        Aqua Planet Jeju is definitely one of the biggest aquariums in the world. A good number of mostly sea creatures are on display. The regular "Magical Starlight Blue Seatopia" show is interesting (with a lot of dancing and diving involved). Services are good and the location is really scenic (overlooking the famous tuff cone of Seongsan Ilchubong). However, I've been to many aquariums all over the world and I find the cost of the entrance ticket quite expensive. The "Magical Starlight Blue Seatopia" show is good but not that impressive. All the dialogues are in Korean with no English translation. Lastly, it's quite far from Jeju City proper and traveling to the place can be a bit expensive. I also hope that they would improve the food selection at the food court as well as the items for sale at the souvenir shop (perhaps with t-shirts and keychains with "Jeju Island" written on them).

        Worth a visit
        It was a lovely trip to the mountains in the west of Java. Very calming and fantastic scenery. The lunch afterwards was also delicious in a traditional setting.

        Delicious and fun
        We created such a delicious banquet of authentic Indonesian food under the guidance of our entertaining chef and teacher Tommy. A great way to spend the morning and lots of fun. Highly recommend!

        A must do for wild animal viewing!
        Ana our guide at Tangkoko was amazing. We saw 5 of 7 of the must sees in 4 hours. Easy pace which was good as it was rainy season so wear good trekking hikers. Chaguar was our guide from Manado and he is most excellent with lots of history about the area to share during the one plus hour ride to Tangkoko. Highly recommend this trip.

        Incredible value. Great fun but not for serious cooks
        I had a great time doing this cooking class! For $A32 I was transported to and from the beautiful location, given a guided wander around a small food market, helped to cook Balinese food and fed an enormous tasty lunch! Great value! I have a serious celebrity crush on Puspa, the charismatic lady who runs this tightly-organised experience. She is a ray of sunshine, honey! While I loved the hours I spent making many dishes, this class would not be for everyone. If you are a serious cook, this probably isn’t for you as much of the food prep is done for you by Puspa’s lovely assistants. The actual cooking you do is pretty basic stuff so don’t expect your Balinese MasterChef experience. This class is pitched at non-cooks….. no skills needed. That said, I fancy myself as a cook and I still loved it. I loved seeing Puspa’s stunning family home. I loved interacting with people from all over the world. I loved the delicious banquet we devoured. I loved Puspa!

        Fantastic atmosphere and food. It stimulates all your senses. Especially the crispy pancake, the "Martabak" of Wardani and Gatra. Great!

        Fabulous cooking course, highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
        Fabulous cooking experience, starting with a market walk soaking up the sights and smells of Bali and then putting all of those spices into action with the chopping and grinding to make the paste as a base for some fabulous fish, meat and veg dishes. Everybody gets a work station and is fully involved all the way through. And then you get to eat the feast at the end! Would highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
