Your local guide will pick you up at your hotel in Denpasar. Begin your half-day sightseeing tour at Puputan Square, an attractive open square located in the city center. This classic urban park draws many locals and is a great place to learn about Balis colonial history. Youll find a monument depicting a heroic Balinese family in the square, which commemorates the suicidal battle of the rajas of Badung against the invading Dutch militia in 1906.

Next, head to the Bali Museum, located near the former royal palace of Denpasar. Spend 30-40 minutes exploring its collection that ranges from prehistoric finds to early 20th-century art. Four main buildings inside the museum showcases Indonesias rich history and cultural heritage. View displays of theatrical masks, musical instruments, sculptures, paintings and textiles. Youll see scale models depicting ritualistic Balinese tooth filling, marriage and cremation ceremonies, which your guide will explain.

  • Very interesting and insightful

  • Really good, knowledgeable guide who clearly loved the city and wanted to show it off, explained loads on the way round, didn't take us anywhere to try and get us to buy from favoured vendors, even going round the traditional market which was an incredible sight, there was no unwanted sales approaches. 4 out of 5 simply because it was a bit strange to finish at a shopping centre, would have preferred more sight seeing.

  • Another great day out. Our guide was excellent and very informative. Traffic is an issue and the heat and humidity had us running back to the tour bus to recover in the air conditioning. June to Aug would be the best time of year to visit Bali as this is the dry season.

  • The basics of the capital with museums. Bonus is that my guide could explain everything in the museums.

  • I was the only guest for the tour. We managed our time to see more than what was indicated in the itinerary. Instead of a half day, we extended up to 3pm, of course, with additional fee but it was worth it! Great tour.
