“Tours catered to what you want to see and do”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I chose to book with this company after seeing all of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and we're both so glad that we did. We provided Panji with a list of places we wanted to visit spread across two days and he created a rough itinerary for us and provided us with a driver with only 24 hours notice. The driver we had was called Dwija (but we were told to call him Made - pronounced "Mada") and he was so accommodating and friendly + spoke excellent English. He took us to as many places that we wanted to go as possible, throwing in little extras here and there such as stops for food, a visit to a jewellery factory and a wood carving facility etc. Unfortunately I was violently ill at the end of the first day (reason unknown) and he was so considerate and showed genuine concern. This did not stop me from enjoying both days to the full and I'd definitely recommend this company to others and would use them myself in the future.

“Great Drivers and Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

We used Bali Safest Driver for 2 days while we were in Bali at the end of January 2014. I contacted Panji the night before, based on the positive Tripadvisor reviews and was able to get Uncle Nyoman for the next day on extremely short notice. Nyoman was punctual and took us to the places we wanted to visit. He was flexible and did not pressure us to go to places we did not want to visit.

The next day we had Panji. Panji was great. He told us some funny stories and taught us a lot about Bali culture. He was very accommodating and was able to pick us up at 3pm and take us to Uluwatu for the sunset and to Jimbaran for a nice seafood dinner on the beach.

Thanks to Nyoman and Panji for providing a great experience and we would recommend Bali Safest Driver to anyone wanting to hire a private driver while in Bali.

“Hands down the most enjoyable part of our trip to Bali!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Two friends and I traveled to Bali for the first time in mid-January 2014, for 6 days. Dealing with Bali Safest Driver/Panji was smooth throughout the entire process.

Booking was easy and fast (he responded quickly to emails, which was especially important while we were there because of spotty hotel wi-fi and we appreciated not having to wait around at the hotel forever to receive confirmation that we had plans the same/next day).

Panji arrived promptly at the designated meeting time and place with a very comfortable, clean, air-conditioned vehicle. Most importantly, he was friendly, relaxed, knowledgeable, and flexible as our driver. He was happy to take us to the places we had requested ahead of time, and the small talk in the car was friendly and funny and *comfortable*. (We had a different driver from a different company previously where we definitely felt more like a customer/walking ATM rather than a friend.) There was no awkwardness or feeling like we were being subjected to a day-long sales pitch. Panji told us stories about his childhood adventures with his siblings and cousins, talked about his wife & son's quirks, and tried to trick us sometimes with things on the roads, haha

At the spots we stopped at, he didn't just leave us to our own devices while he waited in the car; in fact, he went with us to show us the back paths/secret picture spots and took pictures for us as he suggested some funny poses. We have some GREAT pictures because of this!

He also made some excellent recommendations for meals and we were thoroughly satisfied with the places we ate at. He even pulled over at a roadside durian vendor because my friends wanted to eat durian while we were there, and tried to say something to the vendor when he definitely overcharged us as foreigners. Finally, he gave us the name of a good restaurant near our hotel for the next day and gave us advice on how much the taxi should cost to get there, etc. This restaurant served local/Indonesian food for an inexpensive price and was DELICIOUS, totally fitting the bill of what we were looking for in terms of food. The green chili duck fried rice was so good that we ordered two more orders to go so that we could eat it for dinner that same day.

My friends and I still talk about our awesome day with Panji, it was definitely the highlight of our trip to Bali. Keep up the great work Panji, we hope to visit you again in the future!
