Agung and his driver Yoyo were delightful guides on my first visit to Bali. They were able to tailor our trip based on the experiences and interests of myself and my partner on the morning. We had an easy taster of Balinese culture, history, and modern life. The workshops were lovely, though certainly designed for tourists, everyone we met was very friendly and excited to discuss their work and and talk with us. Be sure to ask about crispy duck for lunch...! I look forward to being back in Bali agin soon

Our day with Agung was a delight - every step/km of the way. His well rounded knowledge, experience , enthusiasm, and insights truly made our Bali experience SO memorable! His driver YoYo was equally adept at choosing the most scenic and "off the tourist" routes skillfully and safely. Nothing was too much bother - pointing out things we would never have seen on a solo or regular tour No rushing to the next stop and no problem extending the booked time! Excellent value! Thank you so much - we'll be back!
Agung is proud of his culture, heritage, and spirituality. He is very passionate, deeply spiritual and they showed in his explanations and descriptions, particularly the temples we visited. Although the preceding sentences may make him sound like a serious person, he is actually very funny. Lots of jokes, extremely friendly. As a guide, he also teaches what a Balinese is all about. Great knowledge. I would highly recommend him as a guide. One would learn a lot from a local!

Agung and Yoyo(our driver) made our Bali tour unforgettable and memorable! No wonder why tourists keep on coming back. It's because of the hospitality of Balinese people. ��

Agung was very flexible with our tour. When we mentioned that we were more interested in craft making, he was able to accommodate us on the whim. Very interesting tour overall!

Really good day tour experiencing a good selection of what Bali has to offer. I worked with Agung prior to the tour to change the standard tour to suit us more and he was great. On the day (although it rained a lot) we had a great day and Agung and the driver were really knowledgable and treated us very well! We would definitely recommend the tour and would further recommended altering it to suit your needs to make it even better.

Pak Agung was very informative, very friendly, and very considerate about what we wanted to do on our tour. He was very polite, and knowledgeable about Balinese culture and history. He was flexible with our daily plan, and allowed us to stop and see other sights at a moment's notice. This was a wonderful way to become more familiar with the Balinese culture and countryside, and we would highly recommend Pak Agung!

Was very kind. He made special accommodation to show us things we wanted to see and was very helpful to our ageing mother. We recommend him and would use him if we are ever in Bali again.

Agung was great as was the driver, another Agung. They took us to a lovely place for lunch overlooking rice paddies. We appreciated the back roads as the traffic is heavy, on all roads. Our tour ended in a real downpour, water everywhere, with lightning & heavy rain. Agung had to pay for the tickets for the Barong dance as we didn't have local currency. I suggest carrying US currency, not in $50 notes would help. Lots of forgeries in that denomination.
Wonderful guide who was able to take us to the lesser known locations as the coffee plantation and Bali Bird Park. Knowledgeable and able to speak great English. We really enjoyed this tour of Bali. Thank you for everything Agung and driver

This was our last day in Bali. He made us aware of volcano eruption and told us nothing to worry yet. As usual Agung and his team were right on time to pick us up. Made sure we see stick to our plans as departure time was right during rush hour. He made sure we see all the things which he had committed to show us. He promptly dropped us at airport 2 hours before our departure. Absolutely loved his hospitality and his guided tour.
Rajesh SolankiUnited States
Agung was promptly on time to receive us in traditional dress on airport. His team welcomed us with made us comfortable right away. His knowledge of culture is simply amazing. On first day we despite being tired enjoyed our itinerary and adjusted schedule as per our need. I will definitely take his services on my next trip :)

Agung was an excellent guide for our first time in Bali. We packed in a ton of activities into our 8 hour tour but it never felt rushed. At each location, Agung had lots of knowledge to impart. We learned a ton about the culture/traditions of Bali as well as the local, daily way of life. Would 100% recommend for anyone looking for a guide!
Ted WeissbergUnited States
Excellent tour guide has a great sense of humor! He is filled with lots of knowledge about Bali culture and customs and gives great explanations. Had a truly fantastic time!!!
Jean S.United States
We had a full day touring with Agung. Compared to other private tours, it was a better experience having a separate driver so our guide's attention was totally focused on us. We learned so much about Bali's history, daily life, its people and the diversity of culture. My husband really enjoyed his discussions with Agung, who was willing to answer any question. All in all, a wonderful day.

First time in Bali and Agung delivered a 5 star service! He was very knowledgeable, and helped us to better understand the local culture & religion and to maximize our time on the island. Thank you Agung!

We arrived in Bali three days early to see Bali before we were to board our cruise ship Insignia on Saturday. Agung R. was our tour guide, He meet us at the airport on arrival and took us to our hotel. He then made all arrangements for our two days of exploring Bali - two full days of exploration with many visits to interesting places and events. One of the most interesting for us was the visit to a traditional Balinese home, and his explanation of the way of life there. WELL DONE AGUNG!!
Both Agung and him driver when lovely. They even removed a spider from the van for me with out laughing at me screaming like a little girls. We made loads of stops and Agung helped me get lots of pictures too. Would definitely recommend booking this guide.

Very accommodating and eager to please. Informative and friendly. Spotless car and great driver. The traffic in Bali is part of the experience, and the team of Agung and Agung were capable and patient. Another great experience from Tours By Locals!

We booked tours with Agung for two days. He met us on time both days, just outside the port building, dressed in traditional Balinese sarong and hat. Highlights: a sacred water temple, a visit to a traditional Balinese house compound, and a music and dance performance. We were very happy with the tours that Agung provided. His English was very good. Our only complaint, which has nothing to do with Agung, was the traffic in Bali was horrible, so we were not able to see as much as we had hoped.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barbara, Thank you for the feedback and thank you for using my service in bali island. Looking forward to welcome you back in bali island in near future. GBU ! Note : hoping our goverment build more roads best regard, Agung R
Agung was an excellent guide. He asked what we wanted to see, made suggestions and was flexible as we toured during the day, changing some attractions for others. Time was well spent and well organised. We would request him again should we visit Bali in the future

Agung is very friendly and has a positive attitude. We told him everything we wanted to see and he did showed us everything we requested and more. He was concerned about my mother and he didn't rush her, and he was helpful in taking care of her. I would recommend him to anyone coming to Bali whether it's their first time or they are a repeat visitor.
