Having the bike tour through Kintamani and Ubud leaded by the knowledge of Putuk was amazing. He deepens you through the rainforest, rice terraces and home temples of the city. Is the best way to experience Bali’s culture!

Hi '33anthony2016' >> In our view, having also rafted previously with SOBEK in past years, the word you have used "SAFE" is highly subjective. For there is no such thing as a SAFE white water river in the world, let alone in... More
