“Absolutely perfect day!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We first met Wayan while we were staying in Kuta. He was so kind, patient and interesting. His price was really good too. He had made the long drive in traffic from Ubud and was still charging less than some drivers we found right in Kuta. We went to Tanah Lot, he offered us the history of the temple and waited very patiently as we were off taking pictures for a pretty long time.

A week later while we were in Ubud and we had no doubt that we wanted Wayan to show us around again. We e-mailed him what we wanted to see and left it in his capable hands to organize our day. He gave us a fixed price, no time limits and filled the day with all the locations we wanted to see (Goa Gajah, Kintamani, Tirta Empul....) He even invited us in his home to have the most delicious lunch ever prepared by his wife and daughter.

The day was absolutely perfect, and it was all thanks to Wayan and his lovely family.

“Thank you for a wonderful day in Bali, Mr Wayan.”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had Mr Wayan Rida as our driver and tour guide for our first trip to Ubud. He was a kind and accomodating guide, incorporating our list of things to see with his own knowledge of the attractions in the area.He was a quietly funny guy who opened up to us more as the day progressed and we had plenty of interesting conversations about Bali and Ubud as well as plenty of laughs. He is a careful driver and my partner and I felt completely safe in his vehicle. While we were lunching, he went out of his way to buy a takeout of a dish that I was hoping to try in Bali out of his own pocket (of course I made sure he was reimbursed). He showed us his family's orange plantation as well as his beautiful Balinese home on the way back. Most drivers have a limit on the hours that they would work, however, Wayan was extremely flexible and at no time did we feel rushed. After a long day, he got us back to our accomodation safe and sound. I will be looking him up everytime we go back to Bali and I strongly recommend him for anyone who is looking for a driver, tour guide and friend. He made us feel like we had seen and experienced the real Bali which lies in the beautiful countryside and in the hospitality of its people. Thank you again Wayan.

“A very kind and helpful driver/ A wonderful experience in Bali”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I went to Bali with my girlfriend on the 7th May 2013 and we spend 5 days there. In these 5 days, Wayan was our tour guide and he took us to many attractions that make our trip more plenitude and interesting. Wayan was a very good narrator, whenever we passed by a place or before we reach the attraction, he will told us the history and the background of the places, this help us a lot in understanding the culture of Bali. In the other hand, Wayan was also a very warm-hearted person, he would rather sacrifice his time to meet his customer's need. He made good arrangement on the route therefore we can save a lot of time to go for more attractions. His service was really awesome and made our journey wonderful. I was very happy to have a friend in Bali and hope to visit there soon. =)

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I have booked Wayan as my driver during my Bai Trip from 7 Oct - 10 Oct 2012, and it has been a wonderful experience! He brought us to the places that we would like to go, as well as suggesting us to new places. He is accomodating to our schedules, and would often go the extra mile to note our requirements and needs. Additionally, he is fluent in English and would provide history backdrop to the places that we have been to. His modest character, jovial character and accomodation has made it a very pleasant trip for us.

I went back to Bali again in April 2013 and has requested for him to be our driver as well. While his wife fell ill, he continued to make contingency plans for us, i.e. by getting his brother to bring us around for the days that we were there, which thus, impressed us so.

A wonderful driver indeed!

“A Most Caring/Careful Driver/Guide”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were in Bali for two days in February 2013 during a cruise stop over. Wayan Rida was our driver who toured us on the island. He has very good knowledge of Balinese culture, the sights and most of all the roads and traffic. This is most important if you have to get back to ship through Indonesian traffic before all- boarding time.
Not only was he courteous and considerate, he was most kind-hearted. At one of the stops, he asked us for permission to help push start a farmer's car. (I have a video).
He was very accommodating and stopped for us when we tried to photograph some scenes. However, safety was always first on his mind, and he only stopped when it was absolutely safe and looked out for traffic for us when we were out of the van.
He treated us like family and even made a brief stop to see his family when we drove by his home. His 9 years old daughter is very accomplished at Balinese ceremonial dance.
He knows the Ubud/Tegalalang area where he lives like the palm of his own hand, but is also very knowledgeable all over the island.
