Bali Reef Cruise and Lembongan Island Day Trip

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Firstly, you are not on an island. You are on a pontoon anchored in the bay. It still goes up and down slightly with the waves. If you are into water sports, this is a perfect tour; food is fab, facilities are great! Underwater viewing and submarine trips excellent for fish/coral fanatics. Culture trip to island comprehensive and interesting. But if you aren't a real fanatic about water or fish, let your partner go, and you do something else. Otherwise, absolutely worth it!

Bali Monkey Forest, Mengwi Temple and Tanah Lot Afternoon Tour

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Mengwi temple is lavish, and so worth seeing! Lotus flowers in moat around temple, one of the largest I saw in Bali. Taken to silversmith on way - truly excellent, much better than the silversmith of the Kintamani volcano trip. High quality items at prices you can't pass up. You only get half an hour with the monkeys, which is a pity but that is how the monkey forest is set up - not the tour's fault. Well worth it and not to be missed. Monkeys very placid and safe to be with. One caught my skirt - I was thrilled! Tanah Lot is a temple built on a rock jutting into the ocean, exquisite by sunset. Go!

Bali Kecak Dance, Fire Dance and Sanghyang Dance Evening Tour

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour lets you glimpse Bali's spirit. The Kecak ("Ke-chak") dance is beautiful and moving, danced not to music but to the sound of 100 men's voices. The effect is breathtaking. The Sanghyang dance is done by two young girls, and the Fire dance is certainly something to experience. It started to rain during the Kecak dance - they just stopped at a good spot, picked up and moved everyone to the inside stage and area, and continued! Priceless!

Bali Pura Luhur Batukaru Temple and Cultural Small Group Tour

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The rice terraces are lovely, and if you are taken to a coffee and spice plantation be sure to try the coffees and teas, they are out of this world! You can't bring coffee or black tea into Australia, but green tea, cocoa and spices are fine. The chocolate is to die for. The temples start to blur together after a while, but are always interesting. The guides will always try to accommodate any special request you may have - they are fantastic! Courteous, knowledgeable, and approachable, and they take care to ensure your comfort and safety.

Bali Kintamani Volcano, Ubud and Barong Dance Full-Day Tour

Bali, Indonesia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
If you are well-off, this is an excellent first tour. If you aren't, do it a bit later in your stay and promise your credit card you will be good. :D As well as the volcano, you are taken to a batik store where you can see batiks being made by hand, then a silversmith, then a wood carving store, all with the most exquisite top quality goods. Remember to bargain; you lose face (and money) if you don't. I was encouraged to bargain by the shop assistants! All my wood was passed by customs, no problems. The volcano was very picturesque, and the restaurant buffet stunningly good at a very low price. The Barong dance was excellent, and the musicians were something to watch - watch the drummer! He takes the lead role in the 'orchestra' and is an absolute virtuoso! Don't expect to be able to follow what is happening in the dance, even with the description they give you, but it's still incredible to see. The guides encourage (but not push) you to buy, they were very pleased to see me come out of every store with a bag. The art gallery IS worth seeing; there are many different artists and styles and you are likely to find something beautiful and affordable. If you can only go on one tour, choose this one.
