“Great guide and driver”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Wayan was our private tour guide for three days. His English and his knowledge of the area is excellent. He is a Bali native. He adjusted his schedule to fit our start time wishes. We never felt rushed at any site; and we departed when we were ready. We avoided the tour bus tourist traps, ate lunch at memorable places, and stopped at interesting roadside fruit stands. We stopped and walked in the rice fields and at the beach. Due to expected heavy traffic during a major celebration at one temple, he recommended that we changed our tour itinerary for the third day. As a result he accommodated our request to shorten our stay at his guest house so we could stay in Ubud and minimize our travel time. He drove the extra time from Canggu to Ubud alone for our benefit.

“Great driver/photographer”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Me and my wife had the pleasure of having Wayan as our driver in Bali.
He was very professional and kind with us while showing us the beautiful spots of the island.

We had agreed to have also his photo coverage, which was of great quality!

He as a very good command of English language (better than mine), so it will ease any communication or agreement that you are willing to make.

Wayan will also provide you with the informative introductions that you may need to better understand Bali spots!

Concluding: I do recommend Wayan to anyone looking for a driver (and eventually a photographer) to visit Bali island.

“Great day with Wayan seeing Bali”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

We have just come back from a great time in Bali, including a day spent seeing Bali with Wayan. Agree with all the other reviews and definitely recommend this as the best way to see Bali. Wayan is so friendly, has excellent English and very intuitive as a guide.

We had our three children with us, aged 5 and under, and Wayan was fantastic with them both in interaction and also knowing when to modify activities or timing based on how tired or enthusiastic there were. We had a great day going through the Monkey Forest, rice terrace and Kintamani and the best part of all is the photos we have to remember the trip by. As with other reviews, Wayan really is a gifted photographer and knows the best parts of Bali to capture really special memories. With a family of 5, we have few decent family pictures and this is now no longer the case.

One final note - Wayan is incredibly patient. After a big day, he was so calm and pleasant on our drive back, despite the volume created by small children in the back for over an hour. Many other people (us included!) would well and truly lost it at the commotion but he didn't mind in the slightest.

Wayan also assisted us in arranging an airport transfer on arrival and his very patient associate was a very welcome face when we emerged after a few hours with one less bag than expected!

“Amazing Photographer for our Post Wedding (Honeymoon in Bali)”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We hired Wayan as a driver and photographer to take us around Bali for one day. We wanted to have nice photos of us in the beautiful landscapes of Bali for our honeymoon. This day was actually one of the nicest gifts from our wedding. Wayan's work made us very happy and several members of our friends and families were very impressed by the quality of the photographs. Wayan is a very humble, patient and friendly English speaking photographer but also a driver and a tour guide.
