Balinese Greeting - OM SWASTI ASTU WELCOME TO BALI! My name is Nyoman Astawa but you may call me Astawa. I've always lived in beautiful Bali and have been a professional English Tour guide for the last 5 years. I have had the chance to meet clients from all over the world - mainly from: Australia, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, USA, China and UK. I am always interested in meeting people from new countries and to learn about their culture while showing them the Balinese one. My tours cover different types of activities, I will customize every tour based on the preferences of each group/couple or family. Some experiences I've organized before include: Cultural, Food Discovery, Outdoor Activities, Sightseeing, Spiritual, Music and Dance and finally Shopping. We can mix and match from all the above based on your duration of stay in Bali and your plans. I can host groups of up to 7 people (in my 8-seater car) or can accommodate bigger groups in multiple cars with my trusted team. To help you enjoy exploring Bali the following services are complimentary to all my clients: Cold Bottled Water, Refreshing Towels, Wifi Hotspot, Umbrellas and Sarongs for visiting the temples. All of my tours are well-priced and I am happy to provide you with more details by email. Please check the reviews of my previous clients below and if you are interested in hiring my services, send me an email with additional details and I will reply to you at the earliest possibility. Looking forward to meeting you in Bali soon :-) Best,regards Nyoman Astawa

We connected with an agency by what’supp , specified your preferences and the route was made up by them easily . Everything was great , Bayu is very intelligent and interesting guy , he told a lot of Bali people culture, like reeeeally a lot ,we were happy to know more about culture , he answered about literally each question that we had about Bali people habits and history , and trip itself was comfortable Main idea is that during your private trip they try to introduce you these unique culture ! Thank you very much !

During our trip, we asked thousands of questions, such as the economy and political issues of Indonesia, education life, religion...he answered all our questions without being bored, even gave extra information. he even gave us names according to the Balinese language😂😂 Our only regret, why we did not take pictures with him. Next time, we will. thanks again for unforgettable memories.

Booked a driver from Ubud to Lovina (2.5hr trip) after contacting several services for a quote. Ubud Friendly Driver was far more reasonable in pricing and we had a very pleasant trip. Highly recommended.

We are a family of 4 with two young children age 8 & 6 and we wanted to get to see as much as possible in one day. Our driver ‘ Made ‘was excellent , super friendly and knowledgable. The day started with him picking us up on time 8.30am and he asked us what would we like to see, we decided let him plan the day which was brilliant. He is from Ubud , lives in one of the local villages and he knew everything which we needed to know. I ask a lot of questions and I don’t remember one question which he couldn’t answer. Even the kids chipped in with , why are some coconuts different In size & colour ? We went to Ubud monkey park , A Temple , Tegenungan Waterfall , Rice terraces , and Lukak coffee plant . And we also had time to squeeze in lunch at an amazing organic rice field Restaurant . What was great about Made was he was very relaxed so you didn’t feel pressurised or rushed at all so you can just go at your own pace and he will adapt the schedule as accordingly. Guides also get free entry everywhere so don’t worry about having to pay for them . This was the first time we’ve ever had a driver for the day on any of our family holidays but I think in Ubud this is the best way to get to see everything so I would highly recommend it. These guys ( ‘ Made’ in particular ) are great . Just WhatsApp them and they will get back to you straight away .

My friend and I were travelling around Bali and when we came to Ubud we wanted to hire a private driver to take us around for the day. When I googled some drivers I came across Ubud friendly driver and I am so glad I did. We had a driver called Bayu who was really friendly and took us everywhere we wanted to go. He also recomennded other places he thought we would enjoy (which were great!!) We learnt so much about Ubud that day and its history and had fun whilst doing it. Couldn't recommend Ubud Friendly Driver enough- especially Bayu who ensured we had a great day and who was so nice! Thanks again! Morgan & Dakota
