Miss Su has a wonderful way about conducting the walk through the rice paddies of Penestanan, close to Ubud. There were just 3 of us guests, and we saw over 21 of the local birds, and Su was able to identify every one of them. The walk was all on flat ground, no hills to climb, and much of it... More

Best tour in Bali. This was my fifth time doing this tour over many years and I have loved it each time. If you love nature you'll love this tour. We saw kingfishers, butterflies, lizards, frogs and all sorts of other birds, plants and insects. Su has an incredible enthusiastic knowledge of Balinese flora and fauna and knows undiscovered peaceful... More

For a couple that loves the outdoors and nature this was a great experience. Informative. yes! Interesting, yes! Most of all you see Ubud in a different and better light. It is had to pick out a highlight as it is much more than just bird life. Drinking fresh coconut opened on the spot was a pleasant surprise and meandering... More

Sumadi is very knowledgeable and pointed out many lizards, big and small, butterflies and of course birds. We saw a peregrine falcon catch a bird mid flight. Also saw three different types of kingfishers which was very special! You do need to be fit and be able to handle walking across the small paths of the paddy fields which are... More

This provided the best chance of meeting the local environment, seeing the people work the rice padis, and be introduced to the local birds, insects and plants. Su, who guided this walk has an impressive depth of local knowledge. She is a local with a life-time of experience in this area of Ubud. It was the highlight of our trip.

This walk was heaps of fun and a great introduction to life around Ubud. Beautiful scenery. Su is amazing - so passionate and knowledgable - her joy is infectious. We were not birders but loved this so much, I'd be really keen to do more. We also met some really lovely people on this tour and shared a delicious lunch... More

We aren't bird watchers, but this tour was really interesting and a fun way to spend the morning. Our guide Su took us on a walk through the rice fields around Ubud. She is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide and pointed out many birds and other animals to us that we wouldn't have been able to spot on our... More

The walk with Su was our favourite Ubud experience. Su's knowledge of birds and other creatures we spotted on the walk is extraordinary, and we learned so much more from her about the environment and the lifestyle and concerns of the local rice farming families. We began to understand the impact of the rapid development of this gorgeous area. Su... More

I was very impressed with Su's knowledge and passion for birds, butterflies and nature. Informative, funny and enthusiastic, Su shares her knowledge of the fauna along with lessons about rice production. We were driven from Ubud to Penestanan, and walked back. Be prepared for heat and sun; wear a hat and bring sunscreen. The walk ended with a lovely lunch... More

It is a great chance not only for quality and friendly birdwatching, but also an approach to current and traditional life in Bali. Su, the guide, could not be more enthusiastic and passionate. Great experiencie, do not miss it!!! Fernando (Spain)
