Really enjoyed this tour, the dance place in a beautiful temple, and you got even buy a Bintang! Very good dance, and good information given on the history of it. The fire dance section was particularly exciting. They also took us to a coffee plantation which is next door to the dance and that was interesting.
This was full of interest, energy and color. It was a good choice for an evening of entertainment and I love my pictures. We were able to have our picture taken on stage afterward with the leading actor. I'll see it again some day. Se sure to read your program as you go along to follow the story.
Really enjoyed it, it was a perfect representation of their culture and history.
This tour was excellent. I was picked up on time by the guide and driver as arranged and taken to the theatre. En route, we stopped at a traditional Balinese house. The show was very well done, the dances varied, each with their own style. i had attended dance shows in Bali before but it was good to see three different ones in a single performance. I would certainly recommend this tour.
We all really enjoyed this tour. Worth every cent. Traditional dance is a great I site into cultural heritage.
Very well organized, We were informed early regarding the change in pick-up time, The guide was very informative, and helpful. Everything was on time and correct.
Great food and show.....must see.....worth paying for great service....
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!
Although the hotel transfer situation with this tour is a little awkward there is an extra charge to get collected from Ubud and certain hotels require an additional fee once we had actually started the tour was lovely. Our driver and tour guide picked us up early and took us to local markets as it was our last day in Bali, to get last minute gifts. The show itself is very exciting. It's not quite like anything you've seen before and there's the option to have pictures taken with the cast at the end of the show. A tad overpriced I think as it is possible to get tickets quite a bit cheaper from the counter but this doesn't include transfer so see what works for you!

Definitely a 'touristy' event but a good introduction to Balinese culture.
The show was fantastic, especially the Fire Dance, he literally picked up fire with his bare hands! The show wasn't as long as I thought it would be which suited me fine. The stage is outside, so be careful of Mosquito's biting as the sun goes down.
Was very good however you get picked up to early. I got picked up at 4 and it didn't start til 6! They took us to places to try and get us to buy things other than that it was good,
good trip with very nice dance performance - later found that it was a little expensive ( private exclusive taxi costs usd 32 for to and fro trip with waiting and ticket for dance was usd 8 + 8 ( 2 persons) , so this trip could have been done at cheaper price ourselves at usd 48 whereas we paid usd 72. anyway, a good experience.

It was a very entertaining evening performance. the Tour company was great. They ran the tour with only me on the tour. I was glad I wasn't dancing in the fire!

This was a great evening. Our guide collected us early from our resort and showed us some nice little "extra" places of interest. Well worth the effort.
My husband and I were the only ones booked on this tour and our guide had us at the venue early so as to secure front row seating for us!! The dances gave us an insight into the culture and religious stories of the people of Bali and the performers were obviously loving what they were doing. Very entertaining and enjoyable night out.

I didn't end up going on this tour. I cancelled because my daughter and I were exhausted plus we had experienced a number of traditional dance performances at other venues during our holiday. I would have liked to see the fire dance but it was not to be this time. I would recommend it to others though because I believe it would be worthwhile and enjoyable.
