Really nice tour. Stopped at a silver / gold maker and definitely made a purchase. The Barong Dance was quite fun and the costumes were amazing!
Best tour we took. Our guides were great, and we really enjoyed our time with them!! We felt like we saw the "real" Bali on this tour, and are so thankful for it! FABULOUS!!
Doing what: Private Bike Tour of Bongkasa Village
I enjoyed this trip - if like me you've been to Bali a few times and are looking for something different, this covers a large part of the centre of the island.
Was very exciting, the tour package and guide was great, a must see
We saw a great deal of Bali. The guide was very good. He knew almost everything and his english was nearly perfect. A recommendable tour to see Bali.
What a great Christmas Day,we enjoyed this Tour.So much information.Driver and Tourguide where flawless.
Tour East did a good job of organizing this tour. The tour itself is a nice view of the island for a day trip. It is family friendly as we were traveling with a 7 yr old. The lunch buffet was average and priced for the scenery (i.e., expensive for Bali standards but good view of the volcano summit - we did see people order ala carte so this may be an option).
All in all a positive experience, but some possible downsides to be prepared for - the tour has stops and, at all these stops, you will be approached to buy things (sort of like "exit through the gift shop"). Don't feel pressured, if you like something by all means haggle a bit and get it, we found some interesting pieces along the way (don't forget extra rupiah although many places take credit cards for an additional 3% fee)...you have to understand that this is a living for many of the people and they rely on tourists for wages. However, we did not buy things on every stop and found a polite but audible "no thank you" did the trick. Also, if you go during a busy time in Bali, be prepared for some traffic especially in the evening return to your hotel.
On a positive note, if you can request tour guide Kana, by all means do so. He will make sure you are well taken care of and is full of great info on the island. Great job Kana!
Well, you only see the volcano from distance, not even close. No lava, no steams. All you get is sitting in a restaurant and watch from the window.
Lost day. From the vulkano - you will see only nice landscape (of course not so close like on viator picture).
Wonderful guide and driver. Bud at its best. Well worth to he money.
Highly recommended day tour of Bali.
Loved the entire day!
The highlights for me were:-
1. Ubud. Found the rice fields AMAZING!
2. The food at the restraunt at the volacanoe look out was probably the best I had in Bali.
3. Buying the art! Loved the paint shop.
Would do it all over again :)
I have done quite a few trips with Viator and find them very reliable. The Guide (Mr. Windra) was very knowledgeable. A nice trip but a lot of visits to shops / factories (not pushy though). The Barong dance was a bit too long. There were no a-la-carte options for the lunch - only a buffet (a bad idea for a tiny eater like me). Next, a visit to a temple with magical springs. The temple was very interesting and being a Hindu I could easily identify with it.
I had a wonderful time on this tour. My guide Suka was so knowledgeable and explained everything so fully. I would highly recommend this tour and hopefully you are lucky enough to get Suka as your guide. I have used Viator in Vietnam, Paris and now Bali and can highly recommend them. Their service is top quality.
Best way of seeing Bali outside the tourist strips.
Culture, crafts and scenery all in a day.
Tour guide adjusted the stops and time spent at stops to suit the group - excellent!
