I highly recommend Ari and Wayan. If you have found his Trip Advisor page, congratulations, you can book your holiday transport and tours with him and be confident that you are in safe hands.

Ari was quick to respond to all my questions and was patient and helpful as we tried to work out an itinerary that made the most of our short time on Bali before we moved on to the Gilis. We started on email but switched to WhatsApp as it is so much more accessible. Ari was totally reliable, always waiting for us in the morning and we felt safe and comfortable with him. He picked us up from the airport for our hotel transfer and then arranged for Wayan to collect my daughter from a later flight. One of my concerns had been where to change money safely - Ari stopped off at a reliable money changer on the way to our hotel for me. Don't forget though to use your own calculator and count the money.....

Driving around Bali always takes longer than you might think as nothing appears to be that far..... but there is a lot of traffic, something that Ari explained during our itinerary planning.

We enjoy an 'active' holiday so here is what we fitted in with Ari's help -

Day 1 we travelled north to the Blue lagoon, Aling Aling waterfall (5/10/15m jumps) and natural waterfall slide. We took the medium length trek. Finished the day with a pleasant visit to Ulun Danu Beratan (the 'floating' temple).

Day 2 early 2.30 am drive to Mt Batur. Ari had arranged the guide who was waiting to take us up to see the sunrise from the top of the volcano. We took the difficult route, but if you would like to do this and are not so mobile, he may have an alternative route for you. Afternoon to the Ayung river and Red Paddle for white water rafting.

Day 3 Wayan drove us to Jatiluwah Rice Terraces where we were almost the only people there (unlike the busy rice terrace closer to Ubud). Views were stunning and we had a lovely fresh coconut at a farmer's stall. When I mentioned that I would like to buy some Batik Wayan made a phone call to see where to take us. The shop had a great selection!

On our last day Ari was taken ill but arranged for Wayan to take us to Jatiluwah. Wayan was also a great driver and guide and we had a really enjoyable day with him.

So we highly recommend Ari and Wayan and will use them again if/when we get back to Bali which is the highest possible compliment. Thank you Ari and Wayan for making our stay on Bali so memorable and special.

We planned our trip to Bali months ago and one of the first things we did was arrange our pickup from the cruise terminal in Benoa coupled with a full day tour and transfer to the Four Seasons Bali Sayan. Ari immediately responded to my email (very professional)with a confirmation.
A month before our departure I sent another email just to confirm, his immediate response, I have your details I will see at the appointed time. Always wanting to be sure there is no misunderstanding, I emailed him again, 2 days before our arrival, not to worry he replied I will be there with your names on a sign. Right on time, he met us at the Benoa cruise terminal. He provided us with a full day of Bali sights and culture. Ari will help you fully understand the beautiful Bali culture and its people. After our initial full day tour, we arranged a half day tour of the volcano area, very beautiful. We also arranged a transfer to the airport at the end of our stay. Ari is trustworthy, knowledgable, very friendly, extremely reasonable, and most importantly he is a professional. At the end of our journey my wife and I both hugged him as we said good bye, as we felt we had made a new friend in a most beautiful part of the world

This was our first time visiting Bali...we initially planned to do all the travelling on our own however since we are not really the 'adventurous' type so we decided to get a private tour. Ari n Wayan really are like what people described...very helpful, easygoing, professional n most of all knowledgeable about their own culture... we enjoyed their company so much. double thumbs up for them😉

This is a great way to see Bali. For $30 a person (minumum 2 people) or $60 for one person...the driver will drive you around all day. The itinerary is flexible as long as its doable. I saw the royal temple complex, the temple at Lake Bratan, a coffee plantation, the rice terraces, the butterfly park...and any stops at shops or galleries along the way. The price does not include any entrance fees, or food. This is a great way to see many places and not have to be stressed out by driving yourself. The roads are often quite a mess...traffic-wise / conditions.

Several months before our trip, I contacted Ari on-line. I explained that I was looking for a guide for Ubud and surrounding areas as well an affordable hotel. Ari replied with several possible itineraries and a hotel; the Komanecka. Based on his recommendations, we requested a day of his time and reserved a room at the Komanecka. Ari gave us the "right" advice. The Komanecka was one of the best experiences that we have ever had at any hotel in the world. World class service that rivals the George V in Paris.

Additionally, Ari was an incredible guide and advocate for Ubud. His ability to effectively communicate goes beyond simple concepts into the abstract and complex. As we visited various temples and shrines, Ari enabled us to understand Hinduism and importance in people's lives. He shared his beliefs with us.

Our one day with Ari, extended to three days. He allowed us to gain an understanding of Bali from temples and shrines, the Green School, elephant retreat (wonderful experience that makes everyone smile) to a romantic dinner on the beach. Ari made it all happen. He figured out our likes and created opportunities for us. At the end of our week in Ubud, I believe that Ari is a friend that will be part of our life forever.

Hands down Ari would be difficult to exceed as a driver/ tour guide. He was
friendly, fun and likable.We used Ari for 2 full days of touring in Ubud and another day for transfer to Nusa Dua with a stop along the way. Ari is a fountain of local knowledge and speaks incredible English. He was at the Viceroy exactly to the minute each day. We gave Ari a list of all the sights prior to our arrival of what we wanted to accomplish on our visit to Ubud. We saw real Bali.He planned the itineraries perfectly and arranged for us to have lunch each day which were incredible meals. He is very very affordable. He was a joy to be with for 8 hours each day. He had a great sense of humor. My wife and I can not recommend Ari high enough. He is truly a wonderful gentleman and made our Ubud visit special All the Best. Ed and Mary Jo

I booked two tours via Ubud Driver - one was with Ari and the next was with his brother Wayan. From the outset, Ari was always quick to respond to my emails and was very helpful when booking the tours. The days out themselves were excellent - both Ari and Wayan were very informative and answered all my questions about Bali, their culture and the places we were visiting. They were willing to stop at nice view points for photos and Wayan took me to an amazing warung for authentic suckling pig for lunch - delicious! All in all, as a solo traveller, they were an excellent choice as tour guides and when I'm next in Bali I'd book them again without hesitation.

We booked Ari for 2 days after reading reviews on tripadvisor and he did not let us down. A very safe and competent driver with extensive knowledge about Bali generally, the countryside we were driving through and the places we visited. He was very punctual on both occasions. Very friendly and willing to stop anywhere for photos of the lovely Bali countryside. Cannot recommend him highly enough.

Choosing the right private driver could eventually prove a hassle except that choosing Ari is like hitting the jackpot. Right off the bat the communication with him was flawless, we emailed several times to confirm the booking with him. We booked him for a full day tour and airport pick up/drop off, which was spot on. We decided on the Bedegul tour, which he tailored additionally to our needs including the Monkey Forest in Ubud and stopped anywhere we wanted to snap photos or just take a break. Besides his charm, he proved to be very knowledgeable and passionate about explaining all the cultural, traditional, and religious aspects of Bali that took representation in its many temples. We felt like Hindu graduates at the end if the day. We joked and laughed the whole way, and there was something absolutely not intrusive but rather intuitive and tactful in his approach to our needs. He is not just driver but also an amazing and talented photographer, he took many cool photos of us. In general he is one amazing human being that because of him we were able to enjoy such awesome experience and were able to gain an insight of Bali that otherwise most likely we wouldn't!

We decided to go along with a private driver the day before and just found UbudDriver on the Internet. We messaged Ari on Whatsapp and he responded very quickly and booked us for the next day. We gave him some places we wanted to see and he arranged a route in which we could see all the things we wanted. First we went to the Monkey Forrest where he accompanied us through the park and gave us a lot of very interesting informations. After we drove to the Bali Swing which we could see and enjoy for ourselves while he was waiting outside for us. Then, in the afternoon, we drove to Tegalalang where we visited a coffee plantage and the beautiful rice fields. The whole trip took around 8 hours and the price was worth the money.

Ari is a very nice guy who does this tours for 15 years and his English is very good. He answers every question and fulfills your wishes (e.g. if u are hungry or need something from the supermarket he drives you there). Can recommend him a lot!
