There are loads of bali drivers that can drive, and among them many speak perfect English. But not all can be a good travel companion to hang out with for 10+ hours a day. We traveled with Mr. Wayan Wijana for two full days, I can confidently say he really made our trip.

Reasons I'd recommend him to friends/family :

- Perfect communication in English. He also speaks Japanese.
- Punctual, responsible, reliable. Never late, always kept his word.
- Client-oriented conscious driving. Thoughtful driving on bumpy/zigzag roads, smooth stops etc.
- Super smart, knowledgable. Had great conversations on topics ranging from culture, sports, politics, religion etc. Devoted to Bali customs and culture, eager to share.
- Passionate and hard working. We'd see most drivers wait around in parking lots. Wayan would make the extra effort to accompany us to answer questions, take photos, save us from monkeys.
- Genuinely a good person, enjoyed getting to know him.

Would for sure contact him on our next Bali trip, would highly recommend anyone we know to do so. We'll think of him every time we think of Bali.

We first chose Bali Made Tours because they we very knowledgeable, helpful and quick to respond to our questions. After our first experience with our driver Gede we were keen to use them for the rest of our stay in Bali.

Our driver Gede was awesome for many reasons, he was:

1. Highly flexible
2. Value for money
3. A great driver
4. On time
5. Has a passion to help
6. Has great knowledge of Bali
7. Has good English

For us, Gede was not just our tour guide and driver, but he became a friend. He was compassionate, funny, interesting and generous. We also had the great privilege of meeting the owner (Made) which gave us a better idea of what the company was about and what it stood for. Bali Made Tours is a company that is good to it's staff and provides outstanding service to their customers because they genuinely care about your needs and experience.

So if you want a great experience I'd highly recommend you tour with them!

I had contacted 4 or 5 tour operators in Bali by email before arriving, with requests for their help in planning a day tour to include some of my list of cultural and tourist sites to visit. There were too many on my list and too wide apart, (about 12), but they all came up with various adapted versions. One company suggested making it into 3 day-trips (!!!), another with a 2 day-trip, and the rest with similar ideas. But it was Made Bali Tours that gave firstly, the best itinerary (6 places), and secondly, their price came within budget. For value, it’s a no-brainer – a car+driver+fuel for 10+ hours at an incredible price.

Our driver for the day was Nyoman Miasa, who picked us up at our hotel (Grand Mirage in Tanjung Benoa) at 8.45am. We set of on a route through the city of Denpasar and out to see the sights we had planned. I do wish we’d asked how many kilometres we had covered that day – we didn’t get back until 7.45pm that evening – 11 hours was more than a full day trip!

We had reservations that the day might be a little awkward with conversation. Nyoman was more than a driver. He was very informative, courteous, and was more than a tour-guide too. He allowed us space and time to wander around the sites ourselves, never rushing us, and was always on hand to give us detailed information and advice.

Having experienced the day with him, I’m glad we didn’t think of using an expensive coach tour, or even self-drive. Some traffic and roads are not for the faint-hearted! He was always observant of vehicles around him, and gave us the confidence we needed.

As for the other places we didn’t get to see, we’ll need to do them on our next visit, and after the day we had, we’d certainly use Bali Made again.

We used the services of Bali Made Tour for 6 days in July 2014. After that I can clearly recommend the company to anybody willing to explore Bali on his own.

A few months before our arrival I contacted Bali Made to agree the itinerary of our trip. The company was very flexible and helpful plus they added a few things to the agenda that I was not aware of. Generally the communication is a very strong point of the company. They respond quickly, their English is just fine. Also during our stay in Bali, if there was a change of a driver or any other issue, we were always emailed a day before.

During our visit we had a chance to be assisted by 4 different drivers. Only one we liked less, the remaining 3 were just excellent. Very helpful, informative and friendly people as well as timely and safe drivers. I can particularly recommend Yansu and Gede.

On a separate subject - the daily trip to Elephant Safari and River Rafting that was arranged by Bali Made was probably one of the best days of our holiday. Just perfect!!!

I gladly recommend Bali Made Tours as a professional company with excellent staff!!!

Yansu is an excellent driver and speaks very good english (and Korean it turns out!). He is very easy going and also very polite and professional. Car was excellent too. Yansu shares his knowledge openly about every attraction and he was very happy to answer our hundreds of questions about Bali and Bali life. Highly recommend.
