Reviewed 30 September 2018 via mobile

During our stay in Bali we've planned 3 day trips. Two in Ubud area and one in Sanur. All of them with Agung and his team. It was the best choice we made. He gave us really useful and also very interesting information about culture, history, sightseeings. He also showed us really good and safe places for eating. You just cannot find something better in Bali than Ubud area tours. Thank you Agung for become our friend!

Best driver ever… the end!

Before we even got to Bali, we emailed back and forth with Agunk. He helped us fix our itinerary to make it even better, and made it possible for us visit to all the sites we wanted to. We arranged for him to pick us up from DPS airport to Sanur.. just as a way to meet with him before our full day tours. Why grab a taxi when you could get to meet with the driver as soon as you arrive??

- We went from Sanur to Ubud with Ubud Local tours.

- We visited West Bali attractions (Jatiluwih, Ulun Danu Beratan… ) all with Ubud Local tours.

- We visited East Bali attractions (Pura Lempuyang, Tirta Gangga…) all with Ubud Local tours.

- We visited Ubud area attractions, all with Agunk and Ubud local tours!

If you need a driver, a tour guide, a lift from one part of Bali to the other… I’d definitely recommend Ubud Local tours. The drivers are friendly and local!! The cars are all comfy and well maintained and we were never hot or thirsty! We learned about the local Balinese people, their traditions and the Hindu faith, all from our drivers! Why not trust a local to carry you around? We were beyond happy with our choice.. we never expected to get so much value for our money. We left with friends and we’d definitely do Bali again, all because of what we learned from Ubud local tours. The sights and attractions are nice, but they are filled with tourist… if it wasn’t for our drivers, we would have simply left with a picture instead of a deeper understanding!

Thanks for everything Ubud Local tours… words cannot explain how much we valued our time with you all!

We got in contact with Agung about a week before our visit in Bali and he was very responsive, always answering our questions fast.
Initially we book him for 2 days in the Ubud area. Whatever I say for him it will be an understatement, he was simply amazing! Not only a very good and careful driver, but also a guide!
He kept asking for us if we have need of something or if we have any questions.
During the drives between the sights we had long discussion about the hindu religion and many more different topics.

We just couldn't have asked for a better person to show us Bali during our holiday.

After our stay in Ubud we had a stay in Sanur and again booked Agung to do trip of the southern parts of the island. We spend more than 12 hours for the whole trip!

If you are coming to Bali, look no further! Agung and his team (Ubud Area Tours) are the best choice!

Researching things to do in the Ubud area, I learned of Ubud Area Tours on the Trip Advisor forum. Since I would be traveling in the area with my teenage daughter, I wanted to reserve with a tour company I would feel safe with. I contacted the owner, Agunk Torres, in advance of our trip and inquired about availability and costs. Agunk was always very responsive in communicating with me and answered my questions about the tours, so I booked him for two full day tours, and we confirmed the tours upon our arrival in Bali.

Agunk arrived at our hotel on time (a bit early even). He was friendly, informative, spoke English well and was a safe driver. He offered lots of information about Bali and the culture, and answered all of our questions. The two day itinerary was jam packed with many sights around Bali including: numerous temples, a coffee plantation, a traditional Balinese village, a primary school, two rice terraces, Kintamani lookout, and twin lakes lookout. We spent full days with him and enjoyed our time. When we stopped at sites to walk around or for a bite to eat, we never felt rushed. Overall, it was a great two days and we would book him again if our travels take us back to Bali.

On our transit day, he transported us very early to the airport for a very reasonable rate. He knew we were trying to find the luggage storage facility at the airport, and he made sure we knew where it was located prior to dropping us off at the domestic terminal.

If going to Bali and looking to see some of the local sights, I would highly recommend contacting Agunk Torres of Ubud Area Tours. It will be worthwhile!

A friend recommended Agunk to us, and we organised a spiritual tour with him prior to our trip. He took us in a lovely, clean car to the water temple, then to the coffee plantation, and finally to a spiritual healer.

Throughout all of this, Agunk was very informative, friendly and professional. He told us many interesting things about the area and the culture - both traditional and modern, and was happy to answer any questions. He also helped us avoid any social or cultural faux pas.

We enjoyed our time with him so much that we booked another private tour with him a few days later - from our hotel in Ubud to the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces and then up to Tanah Lot temple for the sunset, finally dropping us off at our hotel in Canggu. This tour was not part of our initial plan, but Agunk made it sound so lovely we couldn't resist.

It was even better than expected, and ended up being our favourite day in Bali! We saw so much, but never felt rushed - the itinerary was perfect. He knew exactly when to go where, and gave us tips for avoiding the crowds.

Thanks so much Agunk - you made our trip very special. We hope to see you and your lucky car the next time we're in Bali!
