My Review

We did this tour NYE. The guide was on time and very nice/informative. We went to the Chinese markets before the show and it was great - our type of shopping - bargaining etc. Our guide did warn us before about the inflated prices and that we should start bargaining about 70% lower than what they asked plus they were all genuine rip offs :) We didn't find this stop long enough so we went back the next night and continued shopping. The dance and dinner was great - my husband finds traditional dancing a tad boring but because this dance was from all cultures and kept moving he found it entertaining. Dinner is buffet style and was extensive however if you can't eat curries/spicy food (like me) then your choices are limited. We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it.

My Review

We had done a tour similiar to this one the last time we came to Phuket. The only reason we did it again was to show the mother-in-law the gypsy village. We had bought her some trinkets from there last time and she broke them so she was desperate to buy them again. Our guide was the highlight of the tour - he had been doing it for twenty years and was still in awe of the beauty of the limestone cliffs/islands dotted around the bay. I suppose James Bond Island is worth seeing the first time but not the second. The markets on the island mainly sell pearls and the ladies are a bit pushy. Lunch at the gypsy village is good - you have to try the chicken, yum! We spent most of the time looking around the village - it is huge! The beach at the end of the tour is alright - it was quite and not many people around as we were first there. I didn't swim as the water was not clear. There are better places to swim. All in all it is a good tour and if it's your first time sure why not do it. This tour does not do the canoes so if you want that then there is another one similar which we had done on a previous trip.

My Review
This is definitely worth doing. The monkeys were fantastic and well behaved - they do jump on you, but they're very friendly. We did see the sunset at Tanah Lot. I know alot of people haven't who have done this tour but our guide waited until the sun set, which was very beautiful. We cannot speak highly enough of our guides for all our trips using Viator. They have been very friendly and informative.

My Review
We had an absolutely fantastic time. We saw and experienced the Balinese culture. The Barong Dance was spectacular, and well worth seeing. The view of the volcanoes and lakes and surrounding mountains are breathtaking. Who made it great were the guides. We cannot speak highly enough of them. They were very informative and friendly and took the time to answer all our questions. This trip is well worth doing if you want to see the real Bali.
