Putu was everything we could have asked for! He has a wealth of knowledge about the island, it's history, and the people. He loves Bali and it shows. He was flexible, helpful, and fun to be around! When we come back, or recommend friends to visit Bali, we will only think of Putu as the guide everyone needs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katie Thank you very much for the 5* rating and great review. It has been honor to meet you and your husband. I look forward to meeting you again in near future. Thank you Best regards Putu K.

Putu was an excellent tour guide under very trying conditions. It poured rain for two days--so much so on the second day that we cancelled the tour. The first day we managed to see some magnificent temples and the UNESCO heritage site of the great-rice terraces. We lunched at a restaurant overlooking the terraces--beautiful. Putu provided interesting commentary along the way and made a nice unscheduled stop at a coffee/tea plantation. Nice ending to a trip to Bali.

He was extremely knowledgeable and courteous and willing to add or subtract sights or stop on the way at something that we decided was interesting. His SUV had ample room for the 6 of us and was clean. We booked this off of a ship and he returned us to the ship in plenty of time .

This was my second tour with Putu and it was wonderful! My chef friend and I happened to be back in Bali for an additional day and Putu was able to accommodate us on very short notice spending another fantastic day with us! Putu added his personal touches to the tour, recommending fantastic food stops along the way (as he knew we are voracious foodies).... We enjoyed, absorbed and immersed ourselves in the fabulous culture of Bali. What a great time!

Excellent. Putu took us around Bali for a day. Travelled as family of four - two daughters aged 10 and 12. He was punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and the car was very comfortable. Allowed us to customise our day as we went - saw traditional dancing (felt like local as 5% Western tourists which was great), local market (again non-touristy), Batik artists, lunch with rice paddy view, cat-pu-cino coffee (!), and a beautiful 1000 year old temple. Great day all round. Lots of uncontrollable traffic though.

Was very disappointed with the tour as so much time was spent in traffic which should have been explained at the start by the guide so we could have decided to alter our arrangements. Also very pricy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr/s. Pond we truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that the tour did not meet your expectations. The common issue we face when we have clients from any cruise visiting Bali is the delay of the arrival time, length of the visit which is very short, and unexpected traffic conditions.Thus,we have to adjust the tour program by skipping the visit to one or two of the place we agreed in order to be back at the port on time. Thank you very much for touring with us. Regards Putu

Putu was an excellent guide - showing us the Bali we wanted to see with his customised tour for us. Rice terraces, the countryside, small quiet villages, a kite making and silver shop. He was punctual, very pleasant to spend 6 hours with and very knowledgeable. He was very open telling us about Hindu customs and festivals and we appreciated learning more of this religion (at our asking)Our family of 6 aged 7 to 70 has a wonderful day and especially the children got a better perspective of Bali life.

Putu met our group of four (wearing traditional Indonesian clothing) promptly at the cruise ship pier, and wisked us away in his comfortable, air-conditioned SUV. We visited wood carvers, batik factories, and interesting gemstone creations. We also visited the rice fields around Ubek, and visited the market.

Our second time doing a tour with Putu and excellent service all round. He went out of his way to be sure that our group was happy -- we needed to split the group due to time constraints and he made that happen. Part of the group rafted the Telaga river (awesome!) and part of the group did tours of Tanah Lot and the royal temple. Absolutely recommend both parts of the tour. We did the Ayung river the first time -- both rivers are good fun.

As this 8-hour tour was the second day we spent with Putu, since our ship in Benoa was docked overnight, my wife decided that she wanted to spend more time shopping than sightseeing. Putu took us to several nice shopping venues, including jewelry, art, mask and figure carving, and the indoor/outdoor market in Ubud. He was very helpful in guiding us to high-quality vendors.

Sites were awesome, cultural experiences could not be beat as we ventured off the beaten path to visit the real Bali. I would recommend Putu for your next visit to Bali.

GREAT tour! When I asked Putu to put together this tour for me; he acknowledged that this would be his first visit to Ijen. What a fantastic trip! A local driver took us in a 4 wheel jeep up to the trail head & a local miner/guide met us there. We left hotel at about midnight, in order to see the blue lights & sunrise over the lake. It was really worth it. Please realize this is an arduous hike in the dark at high elevations: hydrate & wear proper gear. We then visited coffee plantation. Great guide-GO!!!

Putu was very accommodating as I asked him to "personalize" this tour for me. He was very helpful and prompt with his emails. He had great insight and was patient and knowledgeable. Putu took me to his relatives home, where I met his Grandmother and really saw how locals live. Just ask and you shall receive...Putu is happy to make you happy! BTW... Driving in Bali can be a bit "hair-raising"-be prepared. Touring with Putu is like being with a friend who makes sure you experience the real Bali!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tina, thank you very much for your great commend. It was so much fun to meet you and share our custom. Thank you

We were fortunate to have booked Putu for 3 days--2 starting in Benoa and 1 starting in Celan Bawang. Putu is very knowledgable, reliable, flexible and accommodating. His local contacts and driving skills were excellent. Whether hiking to waterfalls, enjoying religious sites, parks, rice fields, or local culture he was an excellent source of information and a joy to be with. We recommend time with Putu wholeheartedly. You will have a great diversity of experiences tailored to fit your preferences.

Putu was terrific. We were with him for 3 days. This particular tour to Ubud was excellent. Whatever the venue Putu was reliable, accommodating, friendly and a treasure trove of information about local religion, customs, family, flora and fauna etc. etc. In view of some of the congestion and travel conditions his vehicle and driving skills were a welcome bonus. His car works well with 2 or 4 people. We had a great time.

Putu did our first day with us as a customized tour starting in Celan Bawang. He arranged to drive across Bali to meet us at the Port. We had a great day. While not his primary guiding area Putu arranged a very interesting day combining some gentle hiking to a waterfall with a variety of cultural, religious and other sites. He explanations and knowledge base are excellent. The 4 of us had a great day. We met up again 2 days later in Benoa and enjoyed additional tours with Putu. We recommend him highly.

I recently travelled to Bali for a short visit on my way to Australia. With so little time available to explore the island, I decided to hire a private tour guide. There were some specific places I wanted to see, but I didn't have time to research. Based on my preferences, Putu put together a fantastic personalized tour that covered everything, and more than I could possibly cover by myself. He was punctual, flexible with the itinerary, insightful and informative! A very memorable trip! Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie, Thank you for your ratting and great feed back of the tour. Hope to see you again in near future! Regards Putu

We felt we had an accurate and rewarding tour of Bali. We were keen to have an understanding of what has made Bali unique and we felt Putu was able to deliver the experience we asked for over our two days with him. He was very pleasant and engaging and had a flexible attitude about our wishes and was able to accommodate to our tastes very nicely. At the end of our time we felt we had some insight into the Balinese ways of life and had made a friend. He was completely forthcoming in his responses.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frank, Thank you for your great comment and rating. It was great to met great Teacher like you and your wife! Best regards from Bali

My passengers said Putu is a great guide. Based on their comments, I would use him again on any trips to Indonesia. It was a shame there was sickness on the ship, some of them could not make the tour. A big thank you to Putu for looking after my passengers, so sorry we didn't make the trip either due to illness. I have had only good tours with Tours by locals. Cathy Roberts Acadia Travel

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating and comment. It is my honor to have your passengers on board and show them beautiful Bali. Look forward for more passengers of you. once again Thank you! Regards Putu
