Overview

Welcome to Laughing Buddha Bali Tours my name is Made and I am Balinese. I have been in tourism almost as long as I have been speaking. My first job was in the magical Sangeh Monkey Forest playing Bali traditional music "The Gambalan" to tourists when I was only 6 years old. My experience as a white river rafting guide is where I learnt to speak English and Japanese from the grateful tourists who would recommend my expert customer service & fun adventures. I previously worked in a Japanese restaurant for many years where I have met and became friends with people from all over the world. I have designed a range of tours which offer a unique experience. My tours are designed to show you the "real Bali" and I wish to share the magical side of my beautiful Island home. For your comfort Our Laughing Buddha Bali Tour Car is a 7 seater Toyota Avanza 2013 model with air conditioning, air bags stereo & all modern features We have a dedicated driver so he can concentrate on driving safely and I can dedicate my time to you 100 per cent.
