The temple was, well just like the other 20000 temples in Bali but much larger than most. Stopping off at arts and crafts manufacturers was good. The Luwak coffe and local coffee sampling was great. Rp 50000 for a cup of the worlds best coffee was a bargain for the coffee conesur.
We had a wonderful day. Recommend it to anyone. Certainly worth the money and we were really looked after.
Tour was fantastic and our extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommend
Great half day tour. On our trip we were the only couple so had our own private tour. It was great to learn about the culture from a local and expand our knowledge. Gus was a great tour guide and the locations visited were stunning.
What a great tour! We were six friends traveling together and Rody our guide was incredible!!! We went to the temple and the rice fields - we even had time to stop and meditate in the Pura Luhur Batukaru Temple - any time we wanted to stop and take pictures he was so accommodating. He took us to a really nice restaurant overlooking the rice fields and we thoroughly enjoyed out day. I would absolutely recommend Viator and this tour.
This quite an amazing tour. Bali is so beautiful. The tour guide was great, Radiawan is his name. He is such a pleasing person. He was on time at the hotel. The ride to the temple was beautiful. We saw all the rice terraces. The vegetation is so green and lively. We went to the temple Pura Luhur from the 11th century.
This temple is in the middle of the jungle. Not many toursit visit the temple, so you have a very peaceful tour.
There was only two other groups, so we had the temple for ourselves. You could listen the birds sing and it was full of butterflies. It was a very memorable tour. The tour guide, let us meditate and sit on the altar for 15 minutes. It was wonderful. Radi went out of his way to please us. It was such a rewarding experience. It is a beautiful ride
The tour guide Rodney and the driver Su were very helpful. This was probably the best tour of my long Asia Asia trip. The temple was unique in that the visit was all about the temple ( no hawking of.many trinkets by local vendors), meditation, enchanting history along with side trips to beautiful rice fields, fine lunch across the street from a major rice field, visiting an actively habitated lovely compound, visit to a batik factory and shop. Wonderful local flavor.
This was an excellent sightseeing, art and cultural tour. The guide was very knowledgeable.
Our tour of Bali was just wonderful. This was our first time using Viator tour service and we were quite please. They were on time for pick up and our guide Arya was very good, he spoke very good English and he did a super job explaining about the,people, culture and showing us around. We would use Viator again for our next trips anytime.
Unfortunately due to illness I was unable to take this tour, however I would like to thank Sandy, the guide for this trip, for his concern for my well being and I rate the tour 5 stars because of his genuine concern. It is my intention to book this tour again during my 2014 Bali trip.
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.
Great value for the money! Saw the real Bali, very special. Temples were breathtaking! Guide very good. Only wife and I on the trip, so very impressed.
Mandara (Tour Guide) was knowledgeable but was too serious throughout the trip. Driver was pleasant and the van was clean. Despite the rainy weather- we all enjoyed. Highlight was the stop in shopping area. The restaurant in the Rice Terrace served cold food and it didn't look too clean :(
