Both guide and driver were good. The best part was the Monkey Forest and the visit of Mengwi Temple.

I really enjoyed this afternoon trip, the monkeys are a must see!
Although I could have paid less by waiting until I got to Bali to book this tour, I am very happy I did this tour. Monkey forest was great since that one was where the well mannered monkeys were. Tanah Lot was amazing, and watching the sunset there was great.
Enjoyed all three places and all very different, monkeys a bit scary when food around but good advice from the guide, Tanah Lot is very beautiful and a special place even though there are hundreds of tourists there, unfortunately arrived too early for sunset but still beautiful and drank some holy water with a blessing from the priests. Again good guides made it a trip to remember.
We had a wonderful time. The guide was on time and he was knowledgeable and kind to answer all questions. We visited 3 itinerary that should not be included... Batik factory, wood carving- (waste of time) and Luwak that we missed to see the Mengwi temple. that didn't matter.. Tanahlot was amazin
Was raining all day when we went so that dampered things a bit. Was only 4 people in the group which was nice more time in each place. LOVED the Monkey Forest the best the monkeys were so cute you get to feed them peanuts but watch oput cause they really really want their peanuts and will jump all over you to get them, but your local guide makes sure they dont get to aggressive.
With the fact that it rained all ady it was too cloudy too see Sunset at Tanah Lot but it is still an amazing temple too see!
Fantastic trip. The guide was very good although, too many craft stops along the way where you can feel very pressured to buy something at every stop! The guides at the monkey forest were particularly pushy.

Tanah Lot had to be the best of the lot. Mengwi Temple was frankly quite disappointing as there wasn't much to see. We couldn't even go in, you had to walk around and look in from the outside. The monkey forest was so-so, nothing spectacular. The guide did not say much. The stop at the jewellery making outlet was unspeakably boring. The tour is worth doing if only to see Tanah Lot, the monkeys and also more of Bali.
The worst of the three tours I had in Bali with Viator. If you can do only one tour do the "Singaraja and Bedugul North Coast Bali Mountain Tour" It is the best of the lot.
Pushy local guide at the Monkey temple, cloudy and drizzling so no sunset view at Tanah Lot
Not a very good experience. The guide in the Monkey Forrest ( not the whole tour guide) after giving a tour took us to the vendors, literally Forced us to buy something after seeing the monkey "for good luck"- we could not get rid of this woman and had no choice ,but to buy something useless.
Unfortunately the guides are more bothered about getting you into demonstrations of local arts and culture which always ends in a hard sell. We ended up traipsing on small stepping stones to cross a rice field to start. Its as if they are trying to spread the tour out. We got 20 mins in the monkey
I have to say that I was slightly disappointed by this tour. It may have been partly due to the fact that I was the only tourist...my guide and driver were both very friendly and did try to explain a lot. But take care that this tour doesn't necessarily take you to the monkey forest in Ubud ( I thought it did...) the one I visited was not that big and one is emotionally guilt-tripped into buying something in the local tourist shop of your assigned guide ( so somebody else who is not employed by the tour operator).
I found Tanah Lot too busy for my liking, but I think that is a personal opinion. I think that in all I just had the bad luck of being all on my own and i just missed a bit of interaction with others....
The Monkey Forest was nice but too short a time, and our arrival at Tanah Lot was much too early to experience the sunset as described.
