Really would like a recommendation for a reliable driver and car, we will be staying at the Conrad Bali and would like to do some sightseeing. 3/4 days methinks. All help much appreciated.thanks
I used a wonderful , reliable and very nice driver for 3 1/2 weeks.
Driving is not his only job but he loves to drive and has a very good car, a Kijang Innova (spacious and good airco). Good English.
He lives iin Denpasar so would be perfect :

you could try Made Sukarma. His website has some tours on it for information for you as well.
He will not take you where you do not want to go, he will give suggestions and you make the decisions on where to go and what to see
He is a licenced guide and his vehicle is registered for tours and insured as well, a lot of the drivers do not have this list of registrations
He was on the trip advisor recommended drivers list....a list that was created by the administrators only of a few drivers who have proven themselves to be trustworthy.
List was removed due to some nasty personal attacks to the caretaker of the list.
I used Buda (pronounced like Buddha), based on recommendations here. He was great and we would definitely use him again. Very friendly, very professional, kid friendly, reliable. Listed on Facebook under Nyoman Budayasa.
I have just got back from Bali & over the last couple of trips have used a number of drivers some recommended on trip advisor the one I would recommend over all I have used is Made Chepot he has a new car only a couple of months old big enough to comfortably take 7 passengers. He was absolutely amazing so personable & funny with excellent english He is a husband & father with 3 daughters & I now class him as a friend. His prices are
250,000RP for 1/2 day & 400,000RP for a full day.

He is 46, works for Taksu Spa in Ubud and got a University Degree last year. Serious but very reliable and nice man.
Here in Bali at the present time, remember reading your post back home and needing a driver. Emailed Made Chepot late last night received prompt response. He picked us up at 4.00pm from Legian today drove us to Tanlot then onto Jimbaran bay for dinner and returned us to our hotel. What a delightful man with such a great sense of humour. He had us all in stitches. Great service, terrific comfortable car an safe driver. Will be using him again.

Came across your post whilst checking out Benoa. My wife and I are visiting during a cruise in Oct 14 so based n your recommendaton and his web site we are going to book him.
