Very Good



Awesome day with our driver Rus at locations we got to choose!

This is advertised as a tour for cruise ship passengers, but I was able to book it anyway and arrange pick up at our Ubud homestay. Prior to the trip, Wayan and I had a good discussion about the various places that I was looking to see on the tour and we were able to work out a good customized tour easily. Rus picked us up nice and early and we had a great day going to the Elephant Cave, up to Bedugul to see the beautiful Ulun Danu Beratan temple, over to the Jatuwileh Rice Terraces, and then finally Pura Luhur Batukaru temple. A tropical rainstorm came in towards the end of our Jatuwileh trek, but Rus was prepared with umbrellas for the two of us and himself. He was patient, accommodating, and made the trip fun. Terima kasih Rus!

We always research private tours and drivers when we are going on a cruise. We don't like the ship offered tours and excursions as they are crowded and expensive. We came across Hire Bali Driver via Trip Adviser reviews and emailed them about a customised day tour. Excellent communication and touring information was offered and we booked a tour that included Port pick up and drop off, all entrance fees, a buffet lunch and a busy day of sightseeing visiting the rice terraces combined with a Luwak coffee experience, seeing the volcano at Mt Batur with a buffet lunch stop, and the Kehen temple complex. We avoided the main tourist crowds and a very enjoyable day was had. Our driver was extremely informative and courteous and come highly recommended. The local experience and negating of the traffic was awesome and we felt safe at all times. We arrived back at the port at the designated time and never worried once about meeting timeframes. We paid US$50 per head all inclusive paid on the day at the end of the tour - the corresponding ship tour was A$150pp! We would much rather give a nice tip to the driver than line the purses of the cruise companies. We have done private shore tours over 90% of the time over the past 15 years and have always had a great result. Hire Bali Driver / Wayan phone number is +62 81933 116036

Ubud Tour

Excellent tour and excellent guide Yudi...definitely recommended and we have booked a second tour with the same driver 😊



A perfect day

Our trip startet at 9 o'clock in the morning and our driver and guide Sakha welcomes us to the Tour. He explain us a lot of bali, the culture and the places we have seen. Sakha always asked us if the next stop is okay or if we like to something other. He teils us at every Station where people sell things that we can bye something but we don't have to. Also the people at this Stations was really nice and they was not attack us to buy something. We See a lot of thinks and enjoy the day with Sakha.

Dewa treated us like family.

We had an amazing day with our driver, Dewa. He picked us up promptly at 9 am and took us to the Ubud Monkey Sanctuary. On the way there, Dewa patiently answered our many questions about Ubud, Bali, languages, and a variety of other topics. The Monkey Sanctuary is a special place. The whole concept of “forest bathing” is very real in the Sanctuary. The monkeys were extremely entertaining. Dewa had to “save” us from a few who wanted to ride along on our backpacks, which made for funny videos. After the Sanctuary, Dewa drove us to the Mason Elephant Lodge. Our 13 year old, who is a typical, YouTube-watching, seen-that-before, cynical teenager actually teared up when she saw the elephants because she was so moved. She lovingly washed an older female elephant, and got to ride and swim with a beautiful male elephant named Arun. “Best day of her life,” she said. Our last stop was at the Jungle Swing, which was basically a great place for a photo shoot. The beautiful backdrop and the clothes you can rent for your own personal photo shoot made it a lot of fun. On the way back to the hotel, Dewa taught us a lot about Hinduism and it’s importance in Balinese culture. The whole day was magical. Spending it with Dewa was like reuniting with a long lost relative. The three very special stops we made around Bali were icing on an exceptional day to remember.
