Putu Artana is a great teacher, proud to tell you all about life in his village, religion, growing rice, etc. After the tour his wife Ria had prepared us a wonderful meal, restaurant quality.

This was a fantastic experience. I was visiting Bali just for the weekend and staying near Denpasar airport. I was travelling on my own so decided to go on this organised trip. Artana was very helpful organising a driver to pick me up and drop me back at my hotel. Altogether this was a full day with about 2.5 hours... More

We did the 3.5 hour tour through parts of Mayong, the forrest and rice paddies. Artana very knowledgeable on the various forrest plants, pointing out medicinal plants,... More

I was happy from the first time I emailed about the one day trek. The instructions were easy to understand and gave us plenty of heads up about what we might experience for the day. The walk itself was incredible, we got to see some of the 'real bali' and not the tourist bali side of things which is exactly... More

We actually booked this tour according to the good reviews here on Trip Adviser and wanted to have a private tour for the 4 of us with Artana. When we arrived there (no easy to find) there were about 15 people (some elderly). Since we were already there we still made it. Puto Artana is still a good guide and... More
