What You Can Expect

Experience Bali: Private Craft, Food and Massage Tour

Experience Bali: Private Craft, Food and Massage Tour

Your private guide and driver will pick you up by private car at your hotel. Relax on the short drive to Mas Village, located just 3 to 6 miles (10 to 15 km) from Ubud and known for its woodcarving tradition. After your guide introduces you to the art of traditional wood crafts that are unique to Bali, you’ll receive a blessing by a pedanda, a traditional Balinese priest. You'll also meet a local astrologer, who uses ancient methods handed down from generation to generation to read your fortune.
Next, enjoy a savory culinary experience as you learn about local cooking methods and the fresh produce, herbs and spices used in Balinese cuisine. While a local family prepares a typical dish such as sate lilit, your private guide accompanies you on a walk around the village compound, where you’ll gain insight into the local architecture and the layout of rural villages. After immersing yourself in Balinese village life, return to the house and dine on your tasty lunch!
Your memorable tour isn’t complete without a 1-hour Balinese massage, and your state of bliss comes in two phases. First, plunge into a swimming pool that overlooks the rice fields, allowing your body and mind to slowly relax. Then, let the trained masseuse work those muscles and send you into a state of calm and peace. Using a combination of techniques drawn from Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine, including acupressure and aromatherapy with essential oils, your practitioner brings your whole body into balance by kneading muscles and folding skin to promote blood flow and energy. Divine!
After this amazing experience, your guide will transport you by private car back to your hotel in the early evening.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

I was VERY disappointed in this trip. The guide flat out lied to us trying to be funny. It was very cheesy. It was obvious that the guide knew the priest and they were making comments about us that were not very kind. It appeared that it was thrown together. We had to keep reminding the guide about what we expected to receive. I would not recommend this trip.
