Balinese Greeting -



My name is Nyoman...

Balinese Greeting -



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 :-)

had an awesome trip with a superfriendly, great driver (komang)! could choose where ever I wanted to stop, totally flexible 👌🏼 was also able to take as much time for each stop as I wanted, so I can absolutely recommend it if you wanna do an individual day-tour through this incredibly beautiful town called Ubud. :) 🙏🏽

We followed a set itinerary on day one and asked him to surprise us on day two. Both days were wonderful and we very much enjoyed the time we spent touring... More

Astawa is such a friendly and knowledgeable driver - so willing to make our day as easy and pleasant as possible! We would reccomend Astawa as a driver for anyone needing transport in Bali. Astawa went above and beyond what we expected to create such a memorable day. His lunch restaurant suggestion in Ubud was amazing...... thank you Astawa!

Nyoman was the best guide anyone could ask for. He changed plans according to the weather conditions, he negotiated in our behalf in water sports activities and was a great Ubud Host overall. Thank you, Nyoman, hope to come back soon!

We left our plans quite late but were still lucky enough to book a half day tour with Ubud Friendly Driver. Our driver was so lovely. He was punctual and courteous and very knowledgeable. He freely talked about his family which was great to get perspective from a local about life in Ubud. Nothing was a problem for him and... More
