We had chosen "Bali Safest Driver" because out of the 3 companies I reached out to, Panji responded first & fast! I had read about how great Panji was, and had hoped he would also end up being our driver. Delightfully, he was the one to pick us up at our hotel in Legian. He was right on time too! I told him we were going to Ubud but we wanted to stop at Tanah Lot first and anywhere else he suggested.
The entire trip Panji informed us of Balinese culture, Hindu culture and everything else having to do with Bali. It was the perfect educational session on our way to our next destination. When we arrived at Tanah Lot, Panji offered to take many pictures of us which was great! He also explained the history of many of the structures at Tanah Lot.
When we got back on the road, Panji took us to a beautiful art gallery of a very famous Balinese painter. The gallery was in the man's house and it was un-like anything we had ever seen! Panji even told us that we did not need to buy anything, just look. This was refreshing as many drivers will take you places just so you buy stuff and they get a cut. Not Panji, he's a very honest man!
We also found out that he sets up tours in all the surrounding areas. He ended up booking us a white water rapids tour for half the price which included everything. Even when we paid at the tour place, they singled us out so no one would know how much we got the deal for!
I would HIGHLY recommend Panji if you need a safe, affordable, reliable & knowledgeable driver. It was great to hear all his stories and even better to get a discounted activity out of it! He was definitely a highlight for our vacation. Thanks Panji!!!
