Tanah Lot was the highlight of the tour. Our guide, who was friendly and informative, made sure that we arrived in time for the sunset, which was spectacular.
The Monkey Forest was not what we had expected. Guided by local women, we were expected to buy from their stall after we had been rushed through the monkey experience.
The tour was interesting and the guide very knowledgeable and informative! We had many opportunities to feed monkey and take photos with them. Mengwi Temple is great, glad I saw it! But we were unfortunate to see rice paddies without rice. Also we had not walked around Tahan Lot, only looked at it from a hill. Sunset was not that majestic, but at some moment sun beaming from behind the clouds made a funny face shape and that was a delight! The only minus is that we spent a lot of time in the car - traffic was bad ...
I should mention that water bottle was not provided as initially said, but we were given drinks while testing tapioca.
We found the guide to be informative and friendly. The tour provided an excellent overview of the rice harvesting process as well as the Indonesian/Balinese culture and spirituality. But the highlight for me was the Monkey's. We were able to get up close and personal and (thanks to the advice of the guide) without being attacked.
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.
Got to see the sites, but seemed rushed. OK tour for price. Better to take private tour for this kind of thing, so can explore more intimately and not have to put up with people constantly going to the toilet.
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
