About Laughing Buddha Bali Tours
Welcome to Laughing Buddha Bali Tours my name is Made and I am Balinese. I have been in tourism almost as long as I have been speaking. My first job was in the magical Sangeh Monkey Forest playing Bali traditional music "The Gambalan" to tourists when I was only 6 years old. My experience as a white river rafting guide is where I learnt to speak English and Japanese from the grateful tourists who would recommend my expert customer service & fun adventures. I previously worked in a Japanese restaurant for many years where I have met and became friends with people from all over the world. I have designed a range of tours which offer a unique experience. My tours are designed to show you the "real Bali" and I wish to share the magical side of my beautiful Island home. For your comfort Our Laughing Buddha Bali Tour Car is a 7 seater Toyota Avanza 2013 model with air conditioning, air bags stereo & all modern features We have a dedicated driver so he can concentrate on driving safely and I can dedicate my time to you 100 per cent.

I went on an amazing personalized tour with Made! We started the day out with the Holy purification tour! Made was AMAZING at explaining everything and making sure I got the best and most customized experience. At the coffee plantation he explained the process and many other questions I asked. We continued on to the tellegelang rice fields, another temple and then to the Monkey Forest. Made continually explained everything and made me super comfortable throughout the day! We ended the day where he took me to a gorgeous waterfall where no one else was, and I got to swim in it! Seriously the best tour I have ever been on! Made makes sure the tour is what you want and that you are happy! I recommend everyone to book a tour with Laughing Buddha Bali Tours!

Wow what a fantastic day we had with Made. We highly recommend you choose Made as your tour guide through Ubud and all its highlights. Made is such a wealth of local knowledge & tried his uptmost to ensure we beat the crowds and had a great experience. Made paid the water temple true homage and carefully showed us through the cleansing process in the most respectful way. A truly insightful experience into Hindu religion. The coffee plantation was a great experience and a must for coffee lovers set in the most beautiful scenic surrounds. The ad hoc stop in to the talented guru of sculpting Maestro I Made Ada was a must see. Bali swing- what a rush! Swinging above the rice terraces and again Made did his best to try to ensure wait times were minimal. The monkey forest was hilarious and accompanied by a guide to make sure they behaved. A safe environment to observe and interact with our primate friends. Waterfall was beautiful and not too onerous a walk to get there. We nearly interrupted a proposal - oops ! But what a wonderful place to do so. Thank you Made and to Sharon for your well thought out organised day that ticked all of our boxes. We both highly recommend Made and keep laughing!

In my opinion, Laughing Buddha Bali Tours is the ONLY tour company you should use or will need in Bali. We booked a “Cleansing Ritual Tour” with Made. He carefully walked us through the process of the cleansing ritual. Made is respectful, honest, thoughtful, and funny. He is a wonderful guide! After our ritual, we also visited a coffee plantation. We were so happy with our tour that we booked another one for the following week! Made picked us up at our hotel in Ubud, showed us a few spots where Eat, Pray, Love was filmed and talked a little bit about what it was like to live in Bali during the filming. He then took us to the Sangeh Monkey Forest. We had already been to the Ubud Monkey Forest, but this one was WAY better. Made grew up here and really understands the culture and history of the area. He also took TONS of pictures of us. Made’s tours are always low on other tourists, or at a time before tourists arrive. No long lines or waiting around! I could go on and on about our amazing time with Made. I highly recommend his tours and will be recommending him to everyone I know.

We went with Laughing Buddha to the cleansing water temple in Ubud and it was a very nice experience. Made picked us pearly to avian the heat and the crowds and brought everything we needed for the ceremony. He explained the meaning of the different parts of the process and give us instructions on how to be respectful and proper in this holy place.

We recently had the pleasure of experiencing one of Made's tours. From the moment Made picked us up from our villa, we were confident that we were in the hands of someone who had a great knowledge of the Ubud region. We were taken to out of the way places, far removed from the tourist traps. Our tour consisted of approximately 8 hours and included visiting the Holy Water Temple, the monkey forest and to wonderful scenic areas overlooking rice fields. Made is a wonderful guide and our experience was incredibly personal and enjoyable.
