We organised our tours by email before our arrival in Bali. For the first, half-day, tour we had Adi. Friendly and polite, with good English, Adi gave us the best tour possible in the terrible weather -- heavy rain -- and then safely delivered us to our accommodation in Nusa Dua. After a mix-up that had nothing to do with... More

I booked with Bali Essentials through e-mail and communicated with them through WhatsApp once i got there. The day of the tour Kadek messages me that someone else will pick us up at 8:30 at St. Regis where we were staying. We met Asta who took us everywhere that we had on the list, the rice terraces, the sacred monkey... More

What a wonderful experience. I had a private all day tour visiting Ubud, The Monkey forest, rice paddy terraces and more. Kadek saved the best for last, a visit to his home to meet his family. This was the highlight of my 17 day cruise. I brought small gifts from the US and they shared their home with me. If... More

He also added in the waterfall next on the way to ubud as I asked him if we could go see it. The... More

I found Bali Essential Tours on Tripadvisor and was drawn in by the great reviews. Having done a lot of research about Bali before our April 2016 trip, I knew there were a ton of things my group of 5 needed to see. I emailed Kadek a list of all the places/things we wanted to do and he emailed me... More

What an amazing tour. From the service to the best restaurants in town. Loved the sites and our water sports experience. One of the best trips we have had. What made it even more amazing is the wifi in the car (cherrie on top!!).

We were met at the ship dock promptly by our driver, Adi, who as amazing, good driver, knowledgeable, entertaining and confident. We had a great day and one couple on the dock waiting for their driver who did not turn up accompanied us for the same price...no additional charge which is unusual in this day and age. Thanks to Bali... More
