Our visit to Bali was wonderful. We selected Agung at www.bali-agung-tours.com from his web-site. When selecting guide service on the Internet one always has a bit of concern; however, for anyone reading this, please feel confident you have made an excellent choice in hiring Agung to be your driver and guide. The web-site was very nice and adequately covered the many places of interest on Bali. Another aspect important to us is the guides vehicle and his is very well mainted - it looked like a new car. Agung is also an excellent driver. We would not have wanted to rent a car in Bali traffic. The high-light of our first day was the stop at the salt making place and learning how the old way is still very much a way for locals to make a living. We also stopped for some delicious fresh fruit. We visited a couple temples and learned a bit about Hinduism. We enjoyed the stop to learn how the special fabric is made and see some beautiful woven pieces. The second day friends joined us and we had another very enjoyable day. The highlight of day two was our lunch overlooking the beautiful rice terraces in Ubud. In addition to lunch we visited a wood carving place where we purchased a beautiful mask.
A note to Agung - we wish you continued success and if we're ever back in Bali we will certainly contact you.
