We spent an entire week in Bali. Wayan is an extraordinary person, he is extremely knowledgeable and shared with us the beauty of the balinese culture and spirituality. Being a local he knows the history of the island perfectly well, the best places to go, to eat, to relax, and also shortcuts to avoid traffic that sometimes can be crazy. He invited us twice to his house where we had a chance to see how locals live and learn more about the culture and spirituality, our kids got to play with his farm animals and pets and also build and play with kites. He also offers cooking classes and has an incredible setup with new equipment and multiple stations. The speciality in Bali is suckling pig but if you want to have the best experience I highly recommend you eat it Wayan's house where his family cooks some of the best side dishes we had in Bali. Wayan was incredibly kind with my 3 and 5 year old children making the day trips fun and interesting even for the little ones. We booked Wayan for our entire stay and do not regret it at all. He made our trip in Bali unforgettable. We are already planning our next trip to Bali to visit the north part of the island with him.

My husband and I and our 2 children (8 & 10 years) spent the day touring Ubud and surrounds with Apple. We had the most fantastic day. We picked a couple of places we wanted to go (Monkey Forest and Rice Terraces) and he made some other suggestions as we went. He is a lovely person, very knowledgeable, good English, fantastic sense of humor and very trust worthy. My kids loved him. We paid approx $120 AUD for 8 hours. His vehicle is very spacious, clean and comfortable. We will definitely use his services when we return to Bali.

Mr.Wayan 'Apple' Susana the best person you can ever meet in Ubud. Without beating around the bush, let me tell you that he was very helpful from the day we first started mailing him till the day he arranged to drop us off at the airport. He first met us at Puri sunia resort and chalked out an itenary on place. He ensured that we don't get tired while drawing a personalized plan for us. It was a short stay at Ubud but he ensured that we get to see the best of the places and feel the Balinese culture. He is simple, excellent at communication and a very witty guy. He arranged for a tour guide for us who goes by the name Wayan Sudi, an amazingly simple and honest person who will guide you in the very right way and help you when other people or touts try to fleece you of your money. Highly recommend to book your trip via Wayan Tours and enjoy your stay in Bali. Would definitely visit Bali and tour with Wayan 'Apple' Susana and Wayan Sudi again. Tip: Book Wayan Tours well in advance to ensure a smooth and blissful tour.

Wayan introduced us to magical Bali. We had the honor of visiting areas where the Balinese people live and shop, including his own family. From our emails, he created the perfect itinerary. While visiting a local market we met his grandmother (see photo) and toured his home that has been in the family for 600 years. Our coffee break included products from their land including the incredible fruit and baked banana that his Aunt made especially for us. We saw the ancient rice terrace and fields, as well as Temples and Royal Palaces. We even convinced him to show us the local government area. He indulged our shopping at a Batik factory (only shopping we did in nearly a month of travels). Wayan is the perfect guide: his warmth, humor, intelligence and command of English. His car is large and clean he has preparations for any thing we may encounter. Best of all he insisted on taking photos of my husband and me to insure we had pictures of us together.
