    Highly recommend and ask for Ma-de! Winding down after a few weeks in SE Asia we decided to spend a few days in UBUD and added in this tour to break free of the busy downtown UBUD streets. Although our hotel, Westin Element, offered a free shuttle to the monkey sanctuary, having this as part of the package - made for a perfect start of the day. This wasn’t’ initially on the top of my list but turned out to be a wonderful experience - the monkeys are well taken care of and roam free, yet I never felt as if they were a threat to our young child. From there, Ma-de bought us to a less visited temple, then a wonderful stop for lunch, followed by a stop over at a interactive coffee plantation - another highlight. After a full sampling and a nice dose of caffeine, we visited the Pura Tirta Empul (lots of tourists wanting to be cleansed - well, at least for their Instagrams -but worth the stop), and then onward to a beautiful rice field viewing. For me, the key to these tours is having an interactive driver to help explain the history of the sites along with adding in local knowledge while in transit. Ma-de helped to create the perfect day! Thanks!

    My guide, Mr BENIK, was so awesome. He is friendly, calm, knowledgeable for Bali culture and history, safe driving and punctual for time and flexible. With his hospitality and kindness, I could really enjoy one day solo tour in the Ubud area and I additionally ordered another day tour for him. I truly recommend him for everyone.

    My driver and guide was Hendra and he was perfect. He provided me with useful information about the places we visited, eg Temple and waterfall. At a glance it was a relaxing day with a lot of information.

    Informative, kind. Makes you feel taken care of. Why are surveys a must and so annoying? The tour guide was great! The survey is bad

    Fantastic experience visiting the best attractions in ubud. Strong emotions at the monkey forest. A special thanks goes to Yande, very friendly and precise guide in the explanations. He made me feel at ease and told me many anecdotes. I recommend this tour and I recommend Yande!

    We spent the day with Sakha today and he was amazing! Cannot recommend both this tour, and this guide more, he showed us so much of Bali and took the worries of travel on the busy roads away. 10/10, ask for Sakha, you won’t regret it.

    Amazing day out! Great to see the temples and rice terraces and also just to see a different part of Bali on the drive. Our guide was lovely, so cheerful and great to hear his insights about Bali and his religion.

    HBD arranged 3 days of tours for us. We advised Wayan where we would like to go and see, and he did the rest and arranged the tours for us. Excellent value for money! Our driver / host for all our tours was the fantastic Agus. Such a lovely, kind, generous, man > he was absolutely fantastic as our guide and could not have been more hospitable during the days he accompanied us. A first class service was provided every step of the way - we could not have asked any more, always making sure and going out of his way to ensure that we got the most out of our days, and he's a very good photographer! Would highly recommend HBD!
