It was our good opportunity to book with Bail Essential tours on our first trip to Bali and be looked after by such a friendly and welcoming guide as Kadek.From the moment we were picked up at the airport, we felt safe and secure . Kadek recommended some great trips to the volcano, stopping at a traditional balinese village,we a lot of thing,if you are request, he will provide cold drinks, beer or sof drink, a small bar, we round with 4 friends, all very comfortable, plenty of humor ,
is a chance will meet again, we promise,,
successful

“Excellent service- highly recommended”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We (party of two adults) decided to book tour with Kadek seeing many recommendations on TA. That's all true! Very nice young man (pretty good english, which is not obvious in Bali), spotless car and efficient customer oriented service. After excellent full day excursion, we also asked him to transfer us from our hotel to the airport on very last day. This cost us half of the price offered by hotel, with much friendler service! Beeing very attracted by Bali, we'll be back with friends later this year, and definitely will arrange all tours with Kadek.

“Great customer service”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Arranged a private day tour with Kadek. Unfortunately, our cruise ship had to change the itinerary last minute so Kadek was not available but he arranged for his brother in law, Adi, to drive. He was very pleasant if not shy and his English was excellent. He was helpful and informative but needed some coaxing and questioning first. Bali is very different than expected. It has beautiful scenery, including rice terraces, but there is so much driving involved, as the roads are fairly primitive. Adi even took us to his home to show a traditional Balinese way of life, which was so interesting. Prior to the tour, Kadek was first rate regarding communication, as he was so prompt and helpful in all of the arrangements. I would definitely use his services again, but I would want him as our guide next time.

“BEST DRIVER AND TOUR GUIDE IN BALI”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Kadek picked us off our cruise boat and gave us a wonderful tour . Not only is he a delightful young man also a very safe careful driver who always aims to please.
We are going to bali again and can wait to use his services for a longer time and use his local knowlege to see more sights of Bali.
