Alice P. (06/10/2022)

Made, our driver, drove us during this wonderful day among several amazing places. He is very nice and shared with us the local customs with a lot of short stories. He also recommended us some nice spots to have lunch. Thank you so much!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Thanks a lot to Made with whom we’ve tasted a Bali Gulling! Super driver, I do recommend!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Pleasant visits

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Air-conditioned transport with a friendly driver!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Pleasant visit under the sun.

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Great experience, thanks to our guide for having brought us the Balinese breakfast on the boat, it was delicious!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Made took great care of us on this trip far from his home, stopping several times when we needed it.

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Amazing day under the sun, with a preference for Penglipuran. Thanks to Made for his daily good vibes!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

A huge thanks to Made who was able to understand our spiritual needs of purification at Tirta Sudama. Thanks to him we were able to do a ritual with a dedicated priest, what a fantastic experience!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Probably our best memory in Bali! Breath-taking landscapes and a friendly transport provided by Made.

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

A little bit disappointed about the size of the beaches and of the number of merchants who wanted to sell their products. However, great ambiance and transport provided by Made.

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

The cooking class was very interesting, we learned to cook some very nice food! Thanks a lot to Ketut, this cooking class was so fun!

Christophe M. (31/08/2022)

Wonderful places, especially Tanah Lot temple! Thanks a lot to Made for his kindness and his knowledge that made from this trip an unforgettable moment !

Luc P. (12/03/2020)

Ujung and Tirta Gangga were great!
The discovery of the salt makers (5min) and the Goa Gajah cave (10min) were super short and without any interest.
You should delete it from your activities.

Reply from Elisa,
Thank you for your comments! Most of the time, our clients are satisfied with the visit of the salt makers in Kusamba. The people who work there were probably busy and didn’t take the time to fully explain their work. Regarding Goa Gajah, the feeling when visiting this temple may be different depending on the ceremonies being held when you visit it.

Luc P. (12/03/2020)

Careful driver (Wayan) but not as caring as Made.
No water bottle available and the car was a bit small for 3 adults at the back.

Luc P. (12/03/2020)

A super great day thanks to our driver who took the initiative to reorganise our 2 days trip to avoid unnecessary travels.
It’s better to plan the mount Batur and the Batur lake on the same day.

Luc P. (12/03/2020)

We had a wonderful driver who drove us on a one-day trip to Jimbaran, a route from Jimbaran to Ubud and two days at Ubud.
He had a safe driving and overall, a great relationship. We learnt a lot on the Balinese’s culture, and he took care of us (offering us clean towels and drinks).
I can only recommend him and encourage you to put him forward on your website.

Luc P. (12/03/2020)

We have loved Tanah Lot and Uluwatu temples. However, Jimbaran and Balangan beaches were very dirty… it’s impossible to take a bath in and even to put a toe on the sand.
It’s to avoid.

Reply from Elisa,
Thank you for your feedback, Luc. We are very sorry that the conditions were bad to visit these beaches on that day. The monsoon may sometimes generate this kind of problems in Bali where waste management remains less effective than in Europe for instance.

Sophie V. (21/01/2020)

Very friendly driver listening to his passengers. Great day.

Marie B. (24/12/2019)

Komang was a super guide! Great experience

Aurélie H. (27/11/2019)

A great day to spend in family. We had Made as a driver who always had good advice to give us for the visit.

Aurélie H. (27/11/2019)

A very good day with our wonderful driver. Thanks again Made.

Karine B. (25/10/2019)

Really easy to book, we spent a wonderful day. Our guide Made was very nice and kind, shared with us the useful information to know about Bali’s lifestyle. He made us taking breaks whenever we wanted, and he even offered us to discover a coffee plantation and a wood carver.
I do recommend him.
Have a great trip

Virginie T. (14/10/2019)

We really enjoyed our day trip with Made. He is so kind, positive and helpful and very funny. He knows very well his country, traditions and culture. If we come back in Bali we will ask for Made as sure. A very pleasant and benevolent person. Thanks a lot Made for this day trip.

Virginie T. (13/10/2019)

Made is an outstanding person, very caring and he always do its best to answer all your needs and make the trip pleasant. We also visited the most see places around Ubud with him during a daytrip and this will remain a unique memory. Made took the time to explain the local customs and made us laugh all along the day. We are delighted.

Anna C. (13/10/2019)

Punctual driver, he has prepared the itinerary in advance. He is discreet and drives well. Thanks to him.

Anna C. (11/10/2019)

Outstanding driver!
We did two trips with him:
 He drove smoothly without dangerous passing (we saw that a few times here)
 He has prepared the itinerary
 He has prepared sarongs for us when visiting temples
 small bottles of water were waiting for us
 as well as cold towels at the end of the day

He did explain us many things that were raising interest before. Pleasant and very kind, it was a pleasure to tour the island with him.
Thank you for the very good service!

Anna C. (04/10/2019)

Very kind and caring driver. A real pleasure to arrive in a country after a 20 hour flight and to completely rely on him to reach the opposite side of the island.
Thank you!

Dimitri F. (30/09/2019)

Tremendous day with Made.
Requested itinerary not possible due to the traffic on that day so Made offered us many other options but without pushing us.
Very kind, Made took good care of us during the whole day with various little touches (cold water, fresh towels...). He shared with us his passion for this beautiful island and knew how to help us when visiting magical places that were also off the beaten track.

Patricia B. (14/09/2019)

Fantastic service provided by Made, a very good guide with really good English and French skills but, above all, he is very welcoming, kind, funny and smart.
A big thanks to him.

Sylvie D. (07/09/2019)

This was truly an amazing day. The visits were fantastic, the timing is perfect and, last but not least: our guide, Made, has shared many information with us about the Balinese culture thanks to his excellent English skills and in French as well. We totally recommend this tour. And we can’t wait the next trip in one week with the same guide.

Sabrina B. (29/08/2019)

It’s hard to do better than this excursion where we have seen wonderful landscape. Juni is an excellent driver, very friendly and he knew how to answer all our questions and expectations.

Sylvie B. (26/08/2019)

The driver was very punctual, pleasant and had a good driving but the car wasn’t very confortable.

Sylvie B. (26/08/2019)

Very kind and punctual guide. Complete immersion into the local customs.

Nikolaos Z. (23/08/2019)

I love your website.
It’s straightforward, accurate/precise & good value for money!

Our trip to Bali was perfect, thanks to Komang!

We had a wonderful time!

Komang went over & beyond our expectations to satisfy us & provide us with a truly unique & unforgettable experience!
He was very welcoming & accommodating to our needs!

Komang treated us like family.
He is not just our driver to Bali, but a treasured friend to us as well!

I have to highlight that he is punctual, reliable, polite, informative, friendly, funny, respectful, considerate & genuine(not fake).

He really takes pride in his job & makes you feel special!
Komang really loves his job, meeting people from all over the world & sharing with them, the Balinese Culture, History, Festivals, Celebrations, Tradition & Cuisine!

He is really nice with children, very patient, thoughtful, understanding & helpful.

Komang is a very nice person, with a kind heart.
We are very lucky, that we have met Komang & to be our Driver/Friend in Bali!

Komang drove us to all the landmarks, that we wanted to see & he even introduced us to many other fantastic places, that they were not in our list & we are very grateful that we get to visit them.

All Komang’s suggestions, drive-route-planning & advice was amazing! We truly appreciate it!!

Komang is very experienced in his job & his communication skills were excellent!

Komang drove safely & provided us a top quality service.
The journey was very comfortable, smooth & enjoyable!
He even let other cars to pass through, that they were rushing, so that to let us enjoy our surroundings & to marvel the picturesque landscape views on the way to our destinations!

We will definitely recommend Komang, “Local Guides Network” & the “Bali Local Guide” website to all our family, relatives & friends!

All the best!

Kind Regards,
Nikolaos Zeimpekis

Pamela K. (23/08/2019)

It was perfect
Made is really kind and has very good English skills
It was a pleasure to make this trip with him.
He is always smiling and makes everything for you
I will recommend him

Catherine B. (16/08/2019)

We have spent a wonderful day and our driver, Made, went out of his way to take good care of us. Not only he did drive us to each selected place but he also gave us a lot of info about his country and explained us many things about the history, the local customs and Bali’s religion. He was a real gentleman, really friendly and has very good English skills. He was simply perfect. We really enjoyed this day and we will recommend this website to our friends.

Sandrine F. (15/08/2019)

Very good service, used three times during our stay in Bali: friendly and punctual drivers with clean cars. Easy payment system. We are really satisfied and we strongly recommend using this website.

Christine C. (11/08/2019)

This time we left with Made, as expected. He has been taking good care of us all along the day with fresh water and even cold towels provided after every tiring stop. During the day we have also shared a lot about Balinese customs, the daily life, his personal life, the hindu religion and we learnt a lot about this country.
He also made stop, upon request, to visit the wood carvers. It was a great day made of sharing and communion. We asked him if he was available for another trip before we leave Bali on the next Friday, but unfortunately he was fully booked.
So we stopped making more bookings as we were afraid to be upset after our first trip with Gede (see my other comment).
Thank you so much Made for your friendliness and your knowledge.

Christine C. (11/08/2019)

We are really upset. Your website presents a marvellous day with Made but he has been switched with Gede 2 days before. We thought we would get at least some information for our very first trip in Bali, but nothing came. During some visits done after being dumped at the entrance of monuments without preliminary explanations, the worst part was the salt marshes. Gede tried to translate the salt maker who was trying to explain in Balinese or Indonesian. Gede stayed in his car and when we came back later he was lying on the backseat!! We shared with him how disappointed we were but he doesn’t felt really concerned. In short, we have booked with local Bali tours because of the good reviews but this doesn’t correspond to the description.
During our second tour with Made everything was perfect and I’ll tell it in my next review.

Reply from Elisa,
Dear Christine, your feedback is invaluable and we’re glad you informed us. As indicated in many places on our websites, we can’t ensure that the provider selected in your reservation request will be available. But the email that is sent to invite you to confirm a reservation always stipulates the name of the provider and spoken languages. Then you are free to confirm your reservation or not (for instance if the provider doesn’t speak your language).

You have decided to confirm your reservation even if you don’t speak English (and the driver doesn’t speak French). So it was complicated for him to give you a lot of explanations during the trip.

I also notice that during the second trip with Made everything was perfect because he can speak French.

I strongly suggest you to come back in Bali and make your reservation requests earlier (if you travel during the high season) so we can guarantee that French speaking providers will be available.

Jean-Baptiste G. (29/07/2019)

Cool excursion but from Ubud it’s a too long drive and the driver was not the best we had. Very kind but a rather exhausting way to drive with such a long itinerary.

Jean-Baptiste G. (29/07/2019)

Very good, in overall everything was perfect, including our driver with whom we had a very pleasant excursion.
Only the Tegenungan Waterfalls didn’t really convinced us as it feels a bit like "the perfect Instagram spot" with numerous bars with loud music setups on the way down. We don’t think this place worth the detour. According to the website it’s "A green haven, ideal for swimming"!! Well, when you see what is dumped in surrounding streams you won’t like to go for a swim.

Reply from Elisa,
Dear Jean-Baptiste, your feedback is invaluable and we’re glad you informed us. During the high season, the Tegenungan Waterfalls are now victims of their own success due to their convenient location (really close from Ubud). Nowadays we strongly recommand to our customers to get there by using a less touristic entrance called Blangsinga.

Jean-Baptiste G. (29/07/2019)

Very good, in overall everything was perfect, including our driver with whom we had a very pleasant excursion.
Only Goa Lawah didn’t convinced us. There is almost nothing to see, it feels a little bit like a tourist trap. Not a must-see according to us.

Jean-Baptiste G. (29/07/2019)

Very good, everything was perfect, including our driver with whom we had a very pleasant excursion.

Jean-Marc R. (14/07/2019)


Patrick V. (13/07/2019)

The day did not go as planned in the description.
The waterfalls are amazing and the most beautiful that we have ever seen. The guide gave us good indications on how to manipulate the drone and was very caring.
But Gede was not the one who accompanied us to the waterfalls (it was his brother). And we haven’t really visited the rice fields as we only saw them while passing over on the way to the waterfalls.
We did had a lunch but I was expecting rare products to taste, not only a Mir Goreng and a coconut.
If the program had been as described then the day would have been perfect.

Reply from Elisa,
Dear Patrick, your feedback is invaluable and we’re glad you informed us. After talking with Gede, it seems it’s not always easy for him to provide local products for tasting according to the season but he will do its best to solve this problem with future travellers. Regarding the rice fields, please note that in order to respect the labour of local workers the guide cannot let you walk inside the rice fields but only around them.

Patrick V. (13/07/2019)

Wayan is a good driver. Unfortunately it was a rainy and gloomy day.
I’m sorry to tell that but the restaurant recommended for lunch was nothing but a tourist trap.
Simply the worst we had during our stay.
Expensive and tasteless.
However I still recommend Wayan if you don’t let him choose the restaurant.

Patrick V. (13/07/2019)

Made is simply the best driver we had during our three weeks here.
Water and fresh towels regularly offered.
Very pleasant talks.
The only downside is the restaurant recommended for lunch (but it’s just to complain about something) which was a bit pricey but not too bad.
The day did start with a temple to enjoy it with less visitors and monkeys around early in the morning.
The beaches were beautiful.
I recommend.

Elisa B. (10/05/2019)

We have spent an amazing day to the encounter of Bali’s most authentic side. Gede has been an stunning guide. He accompanied us to explore the rice fields and the region’s waterfalls while sharing with us his knowledge of the area that saw him growing up, all with a positive attitude. What remains of this day is nothing but breathtaking sceneries and the true kindness of the locals that we were lucky to meet.

Elisa B. (10/05/2019)

Thanks to the customized tour we were able to visit the island with several stops. Our guide and driver, Made, gave us a lot of good advice and informed us about the history and customs of this fascinating island.

Elisa B. (10/05/2019)

We have spent a very nice day together with Made who allowed us to discover the wonders of East Bali. We particularly enjoyed the water palace of Ujung which is less touristic but as beautiful as Tirta Gangga. Also meeting a salt maker has been really interesting.

Ludovic A. (06/05/2019)

We have spent a really good time with Made. He carefully welcomed us, did teach us a lot of things and was a very good guide. However, we haven’t visited the traditional Balinese house and we had to pay the parking fee at Tirta Sudamala and the lockers but these fees were normally included. Otherwise it was a real pleasure and a very good experience!

Héloïse B. (03/05/2019)

Our trip in Bali has been intense. Intense because of the excursions as the island is full of activities, intense thanks to the beauty of the sceneries and intense in feelings after we met our driver, Made. We had the pleasure to enjoy his services during 6 days. Made is an extremely kind man. Always smiling, always on time, always taking care of us and giving good advice. Made taught us a lot about the local way of life and the Balinese customs and traditions. We had some very beautiful moments of sharing that will remain in our heart forever and will be part of our very best memories. We greatly attached to him, he became a friend and it was a pain to say goodbye. A big thanks to Elisa as well as she always answered to each of our questions quickly and accurately. She has been very helpful for planning our trip. It’s a pity you don’t provide the same services with more destinations.

Valeria P. (02/04/2019)

We thank you for the great service. Madé is a special person, we have been more than satisfied.

Valeria P. (29/03/2019)

Excellent service, helpful and very kind staff, easy and safe reservations. Thank you, we’ll recommend.

Michael D. (04/03/2019)

Wonderful experience thanks to our guide Made and local guide network organisation. Notification, guide experience , car, everything was perfect. I do recommend to organise your discover of Bali through local guide network.

Camille C. (04/02/2019)

We have spent a pleasant day together with Made, we enjoyed his professionalism, his kindness and all the advice on how to optimize the tour program.
Thank again.
Last but not least, the booking system is very easy and talking with the team through Whatsapp is convenient.

Yvan L. (03/12/2018)

Perfect from A to Z, exactly as described on the website. Not a single bad surprise... everything was faultless!

Very good excursions.

Frédéric M. (04/11/2018)

Beautiful experience! Rewarding day-trip.

Claudine B. (29/10/2018)

We’ve used your services for our stay in Bali. Airport shuttle and day-trips. We are really satisfied.

Hoyt W. (15/10/2018)

It was a fabulous hike through the rice paddies. Nyoman was an excellent guide and shared a wealth of information on farming along the way. The hike over to Virgin Beach was nice. Sadly, we didn’t wear/bring swimwear. It would have been great to play in the surf. We settled for a foot massage instead.

Georges S. (14/10/2018)

Made is a great guide, a good teacher and he makes stops so we can take pictures when needed. He doesn’t rush you during the visits and you can manage your time by yourself... Congrats Made, we’ll miss you.

Georges S. (13/10/2018)

Hi, Made is a great guide, always listening, very calm and smiling. Always on time, I recommend him. Congrats Made, frankly.

Alain G. (13/10/2018)

Amazing experience! Temples, rice paddy fields, fruit plantation, good recommendation for where to have lunch... we have spent a splendid day and discover stunningly different landscapes, ambiances and people. Made, our driver, knows everything about the Balinese culture even if he’s not an official guide. He is also incredibly friendly and always listening to our needs. He condenses all the things we truly enjoyed in Bali.
We highly recommend him.
We are still keeping in touch with him and we even remotely met his family. I think one can say we became friends now.
Suksema teman kita (thank you my friend).

Hélène T. (04/10/2018)

We have spent very good times with Made. He loves what he is doing and the island, which he knows perfectly. He is full of kindness, a real gentleman a took very good care of us during the excursions.
Thank you Made for showing us your island and we hope to see you again! Luc and Helene.

Lisa B. (04/10/2018)

We had the pleasure to travel with Made. It was really pleasant, comfortable and he is a real professionnal.

Tina D. (02/10/2018)

Everything was perfect: easy booking procedure, clear informations, on time pick up, very friendly and helpful Driver, new car.
I appreciate payment directly to Driver (except small fee for agency) - very smart Prices!!
Thank you to Local Guides! Great Service!

Georges S. (30/09/2018)

Hi, nothing to complain about. Made is great, congrats.

Amandine V. (24/09/2018)

It was great!

Valentine G. (20/09/2018)

Wonderful places whose we sadly did not enjoy at the fullest because of the bad weather during that day. But even with the rain and fog, we were able to detect the true beauty and mystery hidden in these amazing temples and rice fields.
The company of our guide, Made, as well as his kindness and enthusiasm gave back this day a little bit of sunlight thanks to his numerous anecdotes and sense of humour. Thank you so much to Made, he is a outstanding guide and a honourable person!!

Valentine G. (20/09/2018)

In our judgement it’s the best tour offered by Local Guides (among the 4 complementary trips that we’ve done). Each place was even more impressive and beautiful compared with the previous one. What an amazing day!!
Always the same pleasure to be guided by Made whose kindness and company are a real plus for this day trip.

Valentine G. (20/09/2018)

A fabulous day with various activities (cultural show, natural wonders, temples, monkeys). We highly recommend as it gives an immediate overview of what Bali has to offer. Made, our guide, is a wonderful and really caring companion, he knows everything about the island et gives precious information.

Valentine G. (20/09/2018)

Really interesting day, wonderful places and a beautiful meeting with the locals (when visiting the salt makers but also with worshippers at Goa Lawah).
Our guide, Made, knows everything about Balinese culture and history and taught us many interesting things all along the way. Thank you for your commitment, your passion and your great kindness.

Julie L. (10/09/2018)

Very nice day. Our guide was taking good care of us. The day-trip is well organized and we had all necessary time to enjoy every visit without having to rush.

Julie L. (09/09/2018)

Our guide gave us very good advice and explained everything all along the way. It was a great experience and a good way to see the real local way of life.

Eric B. (28/08/2018)

Wonderful day made of visits. The program has been respected even if longer than 10 hours. Thank you Gede.

Eric B. (29/08/2018)

The initial program has beed shortened because of a lack of alternatives from the driver. Organization of visits should be reviewed.

Monique M. (27/08/2018)

All in all a good guide.
Driving was sometimes rather risky (narrow roads, a lot of traffic...) but managing a cellphone to send text messages was not necessary!

The 1st guide we had (during a shuttle on Aug 21st) gave us more advice to avoid being scammed! This time, I didn’t felt the same good intentions, which is a pity!

Reply from Elisa,
Dear Monique, your feedback is invaluable and we’re glad you alerted us. We decided to put an end to our partnership with this driver. Customer satisfaction and safety are of the utmost importance to us. Other local providers are faultless, so we want to preserve their reputation by excluding those who could suddenly lack of professionalism.

Eric B. (26/08/2018)

Tirta Gangga is not reasonably accessible from Ubud during a one-day trip. Made did his best to suggest another suitable itinerary.

Eric B. (25/08/2018)

Splendid day with Made. Everything was perfect.

Eric B. (25/08/2018)

Made has been perfect. However visiting Tanah Lot requires a lot of patience due to traffic jams. This impacts the interest of visiting this place.

Monique M. (25/08/2018)

The guide was taking my requests into account. He was giving advice before each visit (tickets, possible scams...).
Safe driving.

Magali G. (23/08/2018)

Really good service.
The driver, Made, took good care of us.
Always listening us.
Sarongs and cold drinks were ready.
Very kind and interesting guide, a lot of discussions, very good English skills and he even spoke French with us.
A perfect day.

Eric B. (19/08/2018)

Some problems to meet each other at the airport.

Christelle C. (19/08/2018)

Splendid excursion. The driver and the guide were friendly. Some efforts are required to climb the steps on the way back but it’s doable!

Christelle C. (19/08/2018)

The transfer hasn’t been executed. The driver first informed us that he was late. Then 30 minutes later, he called us back to tell us that his car was heating up too much. The hotel did find another driver who freely decided the price and we left with a sixty minutes late. We managed to reach the boat in time.

Reply from Elisa,
Dear Christelle, thank you so much for your feedback. Please note that this kind of technical problem is REALLY rare. Komang, your driver for that trip, felt that your safety was too important for taking any risk. Some drivers are not so serious about safety!

Christelle C. (16/08/2018)

Perfect. Made, the driver, is very friendly and is sharing a lot. Smooth driving.

Christelle C. (16/08/2018)

The driver offered us to stop for having lunch and then we had to argue to make sure he slows down. (excessive speed and overtakings) He was driving another customer to the airport after our trip. Rather poorly maintained vehicle. Very upset after our very good experience with Made.

Reply from Elisa,

Christelle C. (16/08/2018)

We had a bad feeling with the driver. We were so afraid yesterday because of his sporty driving that we decided to skip some excursions. Lack of discussions. After enjoying our day with Made (another driver), it was disappointing. He was always discussing on his phone or checking some emails.

I’m very satisfied with the service. It permitted me to organise my trip by following your itineraries.
One suggestion to improve: display again important elements for each places, as indicated on your website, in the confirmation email sent a few days before.

Melina M. (02/08/2018)

Very good service. Came on time. Very friendly. Many info about the island.

Nathalie V. (31/07/2018)

Made came at the time indicated and has been a great driver and guide. We have learnt a lot about his country and its customs. Many thanks.

Désiré W. (22/07/2018)

Our driver was Komang.. He is an extremely kind men and a real gentleman. His knowledge of Bali allowed us to discover and enjoy all the treasures of the island. He also permitted us to skip a few mistakes along the trip by giving us good advice.. Thank you Komang for this beautiful friendliness..!

Jerome B. (11/07/2018)

Very friendly driver that went out of his way for us! Fantastic! We have spent a outstanding day!

Jerome B. (11/07/2018)

Transportation to Ubud with a friendly driver!

Amalia K. (03/07/2018)

Nous have spent our first day in Bali (Ubud) together with Made and it was a great day. Made is awesome, always smiling and caring, he speaks English very well and also speaks French rather well.
In the morning the starting time was fixed at 9:00 and Made was here 30 minutes before so you quickly now how serious he is.
Thanks again, I’ll do it again and recommend him without hesitation.

Annabelle C. (19/06/2018)

Very punctual, crystal-clean car and careful driving.

Annabelle C. (19/06/2018)

Very good day spent with Gede. He drove us to all the wished places. It was really good.

Annabelle C. (19/06/2018)

A day spent together with Gede who has been brilliant.
He shared with us his daily life and the activities done with him were great and surrounded by nature.
The landscapes were amazing. We were blown away.
Everything was perfect and we have spent a great day.

Caroline S. (15/05/2018)

Pleasant driver with good knowledge of his country. Very good driving. I fully recommend your services!

We really enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Made, showed us his "own" Bali with a very correct spoken French. We even got a stop which was not planned in the program to see the rice fields. Made is an excellent guide with a kind heart. We recommend him without hesitation, no matter if you speak English or French. Thanks Made.

Very good service and friendly driver.

Aurelia H. (19/03/2018)

Made was an excellent driver & guide. We had met him for 2 others tours and he is the very best. Kind, attentive, and always share his knowledge. It was a pleasure booking a tour with him.

Aurelia H. (10/03/2018)

We book a free itinerary tour and it was a great experience. We got to see exactly what we wanted. Made our driver was an amazing guide. He shared a lot of informations about Bali culture, traditions etc.
At each stop he made sure that we had everything needed (sarong, water). He was very helping and always told us to take our time while visited places. We never felt rushed.
It was a wonderful experience.

Michael C. (24/10/2017)

Made is very caring and welcoming.
I recommend him.

Vincent M. (23/09/2017)


Perfect as usual.

From a general point of view, we would like to thank MADE pour his kindliness and professionalism during our travel. We’ve had all tours and shuttles with him.

Moreover, he has good French skills. A big thanks to him and to Bali local guide.

Stéphanie E. (16/09/2017)

Very good service, amazing driver, very kind, smiling, caring and on time! Very good communication as well. I highly recommend.

Isabel R.R. (11/09/2017)

This shuttle was perfect. The car is comfortable and quite recent. My driver, Komang, speaks fluently English and can inform you about so many things in Bali: things to see, places to go, the culture... He was really helpful and helped me get some money changed at a decent rate, and helped me get a local sim card. I highly recommend Local Guide for your shuttle. It is very professional and humane.

Vincent M. (08/09/2017)

Just perfect. We’ve got a message from Made to tell us where he was waiting for us. Very good point as dozens of drivers are waiting in front the airport’s arrivals. Very good quality-of-service and gentle driver. Last but not least: Made speaks French.

Yannick B. (31/08/2017)

Prices are in the standards. The driver contacts you with Whatsapp to make sure about the place and meeting time. Special thanks to our driver Mondok, he was really kind and flexible. We talked with him all along the road and we have learnt a lot about the country.
I recommend this service.

Yannick B. (31/08/2017)

The driver was on time, serious and very kind. He contacted us with Whatsapp before to check the meeting time. The price is ok and similar to what you can find when you’re in Bali (at best you can save IDR 50,000 so about EUR 3). Minus the pain and hassles of searching during your holidays. Therefore, it’s a good deal!

Sébastien R. (28/08/2017)

Fantastic tour, especially the trekking in the rice fields on the way to the waterfalls (with postcard like landscapes). A big thanks to Gede for all the information, his kindliness and communicative joy. Thanks to Anne-Laure as well for her responsiveness.

With the help of Bali local guide, our trip in Bali was a real enchantment. We were guided by a Balinese driver which also became like a friend because not only he guided us all over his country, but he also talked about its history. So, here’s my advice: do book a driver to visit the country as this is both a touristic adventure and a human adventure to the encounter of lovely inhabitants.

Have a good trip.

A cooking class starting with a tour of the local market: this is mandatory when in a foreign country and with so many unfamiliar products. And so begins the real tasting!

Then, the cooking class. Products are fresh, everything smells good, the staff is very welcoming and fully takes care of you with a divine patience. Very friendly atmosphere with other participants and this is even more true when it’s time to eat our meal. We were proud and almost motivated for opening our own Balinese restaurant when back in our home country. Thank you for this beautiful experience. I totally recommend.

Marie-Hélène P. (04/08/2017)

The staff is excellent, both in France and abroad.

From France, everything is smooth: quick replies, email to summarize your needs…

When abroad: Made was lovely. He is a real gentleman, always on time, he expresses himself distinctively and gives numerous advice and information about his wonderful island.

Finally, the tour was great! Amazing beaches and plenty of time to fully enjoy each of them.

I recommend it

Pamela T. (26/06/2017)

It was great! We have spent an amazing day with Made, our driver. The car was comfortable and equipped with aircon. Made was on time, always smiling, responsive and took good care of us. We had bottles of water at our disposal, fresh towels and sarongs to enter the temples. Made was not only respecting our own-made itinerary but he also gave us advise about other very interesting places that we were not aware of. During the trip he talked about Bali’s history, culture and customs. We have learnt a lot from him. We really had a good time. Made’s smile and kindliness really moved us and this remains one of the best memories of the whole trip. It was not just a normal day tour but instead a real sharing. I highly recommend. Very good value for the price, excellent quality-of-service and uncommon flexibility.

Pamela T. (26/06/2017)

Very satisfied about the service we’ve had. The trip was pleasant, the car was equipped with aircon, bottles of water were at our disposal and Made, our driver, was always taking care of us. During the trip he talked about Balinese customs and culture. We also had a stop in a Ralph Lauren outlet. It was wonderful, I highly recommend Bali local guide, not only for the good value but also for the very good quality-of-service.

Dominique B. (25/05/2017)

Made showed us his island with professionalism and kindliness. Made speaks English and has very good skills in French as well. We highly recommend him…

Suzette L. (22/05/2017)

We were guided by Made during the tours.

Thanks to him we have discovered the wonders of the island and his kindness is overwhelming. We will keep very good memories about our trip and we truly recommend this guide, you won’t be disappointed.

Tita B. (14/03/2017)

It was a fantastic day! I was looking exactly for the trip that you gave to me.

Made, the driver, was great with us, he contacted us days before the day, he was waiting for us on time and nice driving, nice car and perfect trip.

Gede, our guide during the trekking was great. He show us all the rice lands, who do they live there, gave us local food (really great taste), drive us to the incredible waterfalls and very very nice. Food at the end of the trekking was also great.

I would like to come back soon and repeat the trip, exactly with the same guides, of course!

De perdidos al rio!

Thanks a lot for a perfect organization.

Steeve A. (17/01/2017)

During my trip in Bali, I have called upon LOCAL GUIDE NETWORK for several services and I’m glad I did as they were very responsive and experienced.

I’m used to travel in Asia and I’m always scared of being ripped off by travel agencies providing tours and I can insure you that Local Guides Network is not the kind of agency who try to get as much money as possible from you.

Their goal is customer satisfaction and authenticity.

I really recommend!! I had a really good time thanks to them.
