We were happy to share our experience on the Ubud tour on nov.30, 2018. We had a late flight out of Bali, and booked with Ketut A. Ketut accommodated our logistic, and loaded four of us and luggage (24" each) to pick up from the cruise port, touring Ubud, then dropped us to the airport, on time within the six hour time frame. Ketut is friendly, easygoing, pleasant, and fluent in English. He is knowledgeable in the Bali religion and cultures, and explained to the point. Suggest WhatsApp for contact.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Raymond and Friends, It was a pleasure having you, touring with me into Ubud and surrounding. Thank you for the review, I personally highly appreciate it. Hoping you had a memorable short time frame touring Bali, until next visit. All the best, Ketut A.
Ketut Artawa has been a great host for us in Bali today. He accommodated all our needs and requests, and made us feel comfortable and welcome. He provided us with several cultural information about Bali lifestyle and traditions, giving an added value to the tour. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank a lot, Paola and Michela. It was a great pleasure touring with you today. Will be waiting for your contact on your next visit. Have a great time. All the best, Ketut A.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Emilie & Roxy, Thank you so much for the rating. Was a pleasure touring with you.. Until next time. All the best, Ketut

We spent a wonderfull day with Ketut, who was flexible in the program we made due to weather conditions, and gave us a lot of explanation in very good english on Bali history and things to know. Ketut knows well Bali but as a traveler himself can connect well with Europeans. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Kasper & Family, Thank you so much for the review. Highly appreciate it. Hope you are back home safe and sound. Thank you for being flexible too. If only the weather was better. Let's save it for the next trip. Be sure to keep in touch. Until next time. Hello to everyone. Sincerely, Ketut
Great overview of Balinese culture and some of the agricultural highlights. Ketut is very knowledgeable and speaks amazing English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ashley and Family, Thank you very much for the review. Hope the rest of your stay in Bali was memorable. Until we see again next visit. All the best, Ketut

What a marvelous tour! My husband and I agreed we learned more about the people and culture of Bali from Ketut in one day than from any tour we have ever taken. We are experienced travelers and have had many private tours. Ketut rates up there with the best. He was a kind, thoughtful and very knowledgable guide. We highly recommend Tours by Locals and Ketut!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Sally & Ben, Thanks a lot for submitting the rating. Highly appreciate it. I was so happy too, to be with good people like you. I am so looking forward to show you more. With my best wishes, Ketut
This tour was very nice. Ketut was knowledgeable about the area we visited and provided history on Hinduism as well as Balinese culture. During the drive and walking tour of Uluwatu he was ingormative and answered questions. For the beach we stopped at and for the kecak performance he left us to experience it on our own. This was a good approach for me.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Danielle, Thank you so much for reviewing. Highly appreciate it. Hope we will meet again oneday, for another day tours. Hello to Sara. Best wishes, Ketut

it was a beautifully spent time in bali! ketut was effective in giving me a general orientation of the place, its culture, religious practices and life in general. true to its being a private tour, the day was tailored to my pace and interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Father Phillipp, Thank you for touring with me and being such a good, generous, patient person. I am so happy to know you too ? Will wait for your next visit and show you more of the island your way. God Jesus Bless, Ketut

Ketut is a good guide. We did the half day Heritage tour which included two temples and rice terraces. The temples were interesting but we did not find the rice terraces worth the drive. Next time we'll have Ketut show us some of the beautiful beach resorts.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Noreen, How are you ? Thank you for writing and giving the review. Highly appreciate it. If only we had more times, we could have done more. Please do let me know when you plan on coming again. Would be very happy to take you to places that interest you. Sincerely, Ketut
Ketut is a star. We needed to get to our hotel in the north west (long drive!) and couldn't have asked for a better way to get there from the airport. Ketut had planned a route including coffee testing, temple on the lake, beautiful views of the twin lakes and a scenic route through the mountains. Conversations with Ketut are entertaining and enlightening, he is pleasant company and generous with his knowledge. Our Bali experience wouldn't have been the same without him. Thanks Ketut!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Krista & Kattis, Thank you for the 2nd booking. I also enjoyed being with you both. Hope you also enjoyed the Tofu Cafe, a simple place to eat. Thank you again, for the feedback. Wish you all the best, Ketut
We had a 7h stopover in Bali and decided to see if it was possible to spend it seeing something worthwhile rather than stay at the airport. Upon our query, we received a very fast answer from Ketut suggesting a setup for Uluwatu and the temple. It took us long to get through security, which cut the trip a bit short, but Ketut was super helpful, friendly and flexible, and even managed to take us to a restaurant prior to our flight. Definitely the most worthwhile stopover we've had :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Krista Highly appreciate you send us your positive feedback. Will always do my best and see you on your next visit. All the best, Ketut A.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Jacques and friends, Thank you for the Rating. Hope you enjoyed the tours with me and consider to book me again when you plan on coming back. All the best, Ketut A.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Jacques, Thanks a lot for the excellent rating. You all are excellent too. Good people, good heart. Sincerely, Ketut
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Jacques, Thank you so much for the rating. I am happy that you are happy. See you next time. All the best, Ketut A.
Mr. Ketut was excellent. I have used tour guides in many places, and he is one of the best: knowledgeable, flexible, punctual and polite. Most importantly he is very trustworthy and honest: No pushing shopping on us (very common among cheaper guides) and even refunded some fees for attractions we did not attend (by our choice). All in all, highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest James, I sincerely thanking you, for the nice review. Highly appreciate it. Will do my best to be better, from time to time. Meanwhile, hoping you have a great relaxing time at hotel. Also found the trip to Ijen a memorable one. Stay in touch, and let me know on anything i could do for you. All the best, Ketut A.
