If you like animals this was a fun tour. Bought bananas to feed the monkeys. Monkeys throughout the forest vying to be fed a banana. Great opportunities for photo taking. Temple was interesting.

Tour guide and accommodations were great. As there were only three of us on the tour, the attention we received made the tour even better. I also appreciated this tour because it took us to the less populated Monkey Forest Sanctuary - as there are two of them - where we received a private guide that allowed us to closely interact with the monkeys.

Fantastic! Also included stops to a jewelry studio, coffee plantation, and a local rice plantation that served us fried tapioca and sweet potatoes. The guide went above and beyond, I learned so much about Bali. Thank you!

Our guide was out of this world fantastic. We went on a sunday, which we didn't realize wasn't the best day for the guides as there are religious obligations in the morning. That said, we were the only ones on the tour and i don't know if our guide took us at all off the beaten path, but we thought he may have taken us to some extra spots. It was an absolute blast. First stop was a local thread factory, where you have time to shop although this will be the priciest shopping probably in all of Bali, then a jewelry village also very expensive but you can negotiate to an extent. After that it was a bit of a longer drive to Mengwi Temple, which is just gorgeous. Then a local rice farm/coffee shop before Tanah Lot. if you don't want to get stuck in hours of traffic, ask your guide to time it right where you see the sun beginning to set at Tanah lot but don't stay for the whole duration as it is insanely crowded. I definitely recommend this day! The scenery even during the drive was amazing. It was a fun-filled day completely full of culture. Highly recommend!
