First, you absolutely need a driver in Bali - someone reliable; someone you can count on; someone who can communicate; and someone who charges a fair price. There are LOTS of drivers in Bali. There is only one Gusti Made.

What sets Made apart from all the other drivers is:

1) Complete dedication his clients. It is very evident that he is passionate and dedicated to his purpose.
2) A level of knowledge and understanding about Bali that distinguishes him as a true guide, and not just a driver.
3) He is willing to go out of his way and introduce you to local Balinese people that travellers would normally never get to meet. For example, Made introduced us to a highly respected Balinese healer and we got to take part in a sacred purification ceremony that was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. We were the only non-Balinese people there and this was all thanks to Made. He has 'friends in high places' and everyone loves and respects him. I have had a few of the most amazing experiences of my life, thanks to Made.
4) He takes initiative and has many suggestions about where to go and what to do.
5) He is incredibly flexible with his time. We had multiple days where a 2 hour venture turned into an all day journey. Made was always smiling and happy and accommodating.
6) His English is brilliant - the best of any guide I have met in Bali.
7) He is proactive and engaged - there are many places in Bali, like Seminyak, Canggu and Ubud, where parking can be a challenge so the driver needs to drop you off and then figure out a plan to find you later. Made had the most uncanny way of knowing where we were. As soon as we would think that we need to go find him, his smiling face would appear before us, no matter how far we had gone from the original drop off place.

Our last visit to Bali was for 2 weeks, and we had Made for the majority of our time there. He was able to suggest the best restaurants and cafes that we never would have found without him; he was able to help us decide between different options. He has had clients who are professional photographers; food critics; adventurers; doctors - people from all walks of life with varied interests and so, his accumulation of knowledge over the past years is very apparent. He is unquestionably one of the best drivers and guides in Bali.

Gusti Komang made our Bali trip an amazing experience! Komang was our driver and he took great care in showing us around and making us feel comfortable. From his driving skills, protecting us from monkeys, recommending places to eat, making sure we got tickets to popular shows, and providing us historical information. Thank you Komang for a memorable trip. We will be back one day and will definitely get in touch with you again. Highly Recommended!!

We have had two 1-day tours (9-10 hours) with professional and friendly driver (Mr. Komang) from Gusti made Bali. He got us to the best places in Bali and was very flexible to meet our needs. He is proficient in communication, on-time and speaks English fluently. We were very happy with the service and will recommend to everyone. Thanks Komang to make Bali a special trip for us. :)

This was our second time to Bali and also our second time using Gusti. The man knows Bali! Day trips, to sunset dinners to quad biking, this guy knows exactly where to go and who to see. Definitely recommend and will continue to use him each time we travel to Bali.
Thanks Gusti, you made our trip stress free!

If you want to tour Bali with a very polite respectful guide Gusti Bali tours is the one to take....Nothing is too much trouble with this very experienced English speaking driver.
I have recomended Gusti to my family and friends and have only had good reports.
Try them...... you wont go to anyone else once you do.
