We only had one day in Bali while traveling to Wakatobi, so booked a tour with I Wayan (Apple). Apple was the perfect tour guide. He is passionate about his life and his country and was willing to share with us. We saw all the main site, which were wonderful. But, none could compare to the tour of his home. We were able to meet his family and see how he lives, which was so amazing! Thank you Apple! We have taken a handful of Tour By Local tours and have really enjoyed each one.

Tour: #8772, Shore Excursion "Ground handling cruise ship or cruise liner passenger docking at Bali Port", Celukan Bawang, Bali, Indonesia    view tour
Date: Jan 21/19

Wayan was excellent! His website promises are true. Our cruise ship docked at Celukan Bawang in north Bali which effectively limited the number of sites we could visit in the short time that we had. We chose two: Bedugul and the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces. Wayan arranged an itinerary for these 2 sites with a few interesting stops along the way and made sure that we returned to the ship in plenty of time. He is friendly, knows a lot about Bali, and has a wicked sense of humor. Treated us to some local snacks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William Wolodko, Lucky the nature are love us, that's way every where we go the weather is good and less people. I am happy you like Bali. Will see you soon in Bali :) Regards Wayan S

Wayan was absolutely amazing! He is knowledgeable, kind, and a lot of fun. He knows his way around, so that when traffic is bad, he takes the backroads. He took us to all the places we wanted to see, and more, and made suggestions for the time we weren't with him. He has a wonderful sense of humor, is extremely concerned about the environment, and actively working on improving it. He was such a pleasure to be around. I would love to return to Bali, and arrange at least a week seeing the country with Wayan

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debra Estrin, I am happy you like and love Bali, I wish you can comeback soon to Bali. And we will see more :) Regards Wayan S

We toured 2 days with Wayan as he introduced us to the magical Bali. From our emails, he created the perfect itinerary where we saw how the local people live including visiting a local market and touring a home that has been in the family for 600 years. Our coffee was from their land as was the incredible fruit and baked banana wth coconut. We saw the ancient rice terrace and fields, as well as Temples and Royal Palaces. Wayan is the perfect guide.

Besides great tours, he always meets us at the airport, this time even though it was late in the evening and our plane was several hours late. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Where to begin...Wayan planned our day perfectly! We saw all the sights of Bali in a relaxed and interesting way. We received so much information about the city, the culture, his family, that we cannot imagine having done this any other way! We even saw Wayan's family compound and met some of his family. The vehicle was comfortable and easy to get in/out of. There was water, umbrellas (which we needed), and snacks. Thank you, Wayan! We look forward to returning to Bali!

We had an amazing day in Bali with Wayan. We learnt a lot about Balinese life, he is passionate about his culture and the Balinese way of living. We enjoyed a customised tour, Wayan was very accommodating and drove us to a beautiful waterfall our daughters wanted to visit. His car is very comfortable and he is a great driver. We also enjoyed a delicious meal in a beautiful restaurant he recommended. An amazing day. Thanks Wayan
