Our driver Julee/Joolee who we nick named baby driver was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was very chatty and gave us so much information about many things in Bali. Highly recommend going with Bali Sun tours and doing this amazing trip. Thank you again Baby Driver for an amazing day.
Our driver was courteous and apologised that his English was not good however it wasn't bad he had to think about a few words but overall he spoke good English.He picked us up at 8.30am which was as stated on our voucher which means it was impossible to be at Tanah Lot for sunset as we had to be back at the hotel by 16.30 to cover the 8 hour tour.Sunset was at around 18.30 and then the drive back to the hotel would have meant a lot longer day. This was a bit of a disappointment as the description gives the impression you are at Tanah Lot for sunset but you are actually there in the afternoon. We had a good day but it could have been better
The tour was interesting. After an initial snag the driver had been informed we were on another tour, which was quickly sorted out, our driver, Yoga, took us through the proper itinerary, which included a number of stops: a look at the beautiful terraced rice fields in the outskirts of Ubud wood carving, batik, jewelry disinterested local guide and painting. Then came a visit to the luwak producing centre where the numerous other teas and coffees we tasted were more interesting than the luwak itself, which is pretty much so-so - and this one you have to pay for. The local guides were wonderful. Then we stopped for lunch - much too late at about 2 p.m.. Finally, we went to see the beautiful Tanah Lot temple, which we admired from outside no entry except on festive occasions - as is the case with many temples in Bali. Then the longish drive home. Yoga's English, while not fluent, was adequate and his demeanor friendly throughout.
After reading numerous feedbacks from different tourists and seeing that Made is the highly recommended guide, I was so happy Made Aldo actually turned out to be our guide for the day. He speaks very good English, friendly and chatty. We hardly had a quiet session throughout our trip. He made our trip very enjoyable by giving a lot of information and stories about Ubud and even suggested places that weren't on our planned itinerary so that we could experience more of his hometown. Although our trip was short but we felt that we had covered a lot. Made Aldo is definitely the guy to hire.
