My husband and I went to Bali for out 10th wedding anniversary and spent 4 days with Driver in Ubud. Before our trip I contacted Putu via email as I liked the reviews on trip adviser. As arranged we were picked up at the hotel by one of his drivers Komang who spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Komang took us to sights away from the normal tourist route, as well as the main tourist attractions – he seemed very good at reading what it was that we wanted. Despite some crazy traffic we always felt safe with Komang and enjoyed his company a lot. Nothing was too much trouble and we always felt relaxed. We felt that the price was very reasonable (our hotel was quoting twice as much) and recommend Komang’s services highly.

From Lee & Ana, UK

We hired a driver for our stay in Ubud in May 2012 to get knowledge and understanding of the city and culture in Bali. This was probably one of the best decisions we made before our trip, He took care of the itinerary and all we needed to do was relax and enjoy the tours. Thank you very much, He is an engaging guide and effortlessly provides best service. He made our trip the great holiday for us so far.

From : Andrew & Wife

We can’t say enough good things about Putu. He is an absolute jewel! He was the perfect guide to pair with our group, Putu was a huge reason why we all had such a great time in Bali – He was so accommodating and fun to interact with…touring with Putu made every day special. Once again thank you for organizing such a brilliant service for our holiday. We have had a great time mostly due to your excellent service.

From : Chanty

Thank you very much, i am happy to have Mr. Putu as my tour driver. He is very helpful, accommodating, punctual, professional and knowledgeable about his city,He showed us the countryside that we never could have seen without his help; what to look at, what to be wary of, and was priceless as an interpreter. especially the food treats like Ibu Oka and local seafood. I’ll to contact you if they want to visit Bali.

From Karen

Thank you so much Mr. Putu, Gede one of team from Putu. Our tour with Gede was one of the highlights of our 3-week trip around Bali. He is efficiency, friendliness and knowledge of Bali (Culture, history, local food ) made our trip unforgettable. He also knew how to take great photos so we had some amazing pictures from our trip. I wished we could stay longer as there were so many areas of Bali we could’ve visited with Gede.

Mr. Dewa was the driver/guide for us on July 30, 2011. We were exceptionally pleased with his service. Four of the six of us were in our 80’s. Dewa was very considerate of us. Bacause our hearing was not the best, he would stop at appropriate places, turn his head towards the back, and explain the historical significent points loud enough for all of us to hear. He answered all our questions, and took us to appropriate places for our ages. The restaurant he suggested was also appreciated–excellent food at a modest price. He is an excellent driver, knows the area very well, and was very efficient in finding short cuts to our destination.

We have just returned from a week in Bali staying at Ubud and South Kuta. I scanned the web before leaving Australia and organised five days of tours with driverinubud. I chose this company because they were totally flexible in mixing their experience with my suggestions of the sights I wanted to visit.
Our driver Nyoman was most helpful in ensuring a great five days. I would certainly recommend this company for tours on your visit to Bali. Thanks Putu we had a great time.

From Rio, malaysia

Should you need a trusted, knowledgeable, friendly, accomodating and patient tour guide in Bali find Putu.

What is so fascinating about Kutut who was assigned by Putu to attend to our tour is the fact that this 21-year old tour guide is a very unassuming, friendly, accomodating and patient guide compared to the other private tour guides my family retained in our trips abroad.

With Putu’s group and Kutut you will feel safe and conveniently at ease on your tour.

from Michael, USA

Spent two of the best days of our lives this July with Wayan of driverinubud. We have 40 stamps in our passports, probably ten times that many experiences with guides, and I would rate Wayan at the very top of the heap. Gracious, personable, knowledgeable, attractive, willing to go to great lengths to ensure our happiness. When he picked us up at 8:00 am on the first day we asked for a change in our already agreed-upon itinerary. He took it in stride, and our request added 2.5 hours onto the eight hour day we’d contracted. He didn’t add a single rupiah to his already reasonable price (we made up for it with our tip). We would not have the rich memories and beautiful photos we now have of Bali without Wayan, He was as interested in us (three Americans, two Australians) as we were in Bali. Best. Guide. Ever!!!!

from Jhon, AUS

Our driver was Putu. He knew all the ins and outs of scheduling visits to sites so that there was a minimal amount of wait. During our visit to Bali there was a police strike, and driving was difficult but Putu knew the “other ways” so we were able to see almost everything. Certainly an advantage to this type of tour is that he was able to gear the day to exactly what we wanted to see. Friendly, attentive, and gave details not given on regular tours. Could not have asked for a better day. This is the first time we used this type of service, were a little edgy, but when we got off our ship, saw the sign with our name, and Putu’s smiling face, we relaxed and had a memorable day. When we go back to Bali, we will certainly use driverinubud again

After the many positive reviews on TA we booked a full day trip. Our guide Putu is after all a very careful driver. You cannot praise that highly enough in the traffic madness of Bali. Apart from that he is genuinly friendly, polite and full of knowledge about his island. We’ve been to different temples, a coffee plantation, the volcano,..

We hired a private driver for half a day to help us to see these sites. The rice terraces are stunning and well worth visiting. From there we went to Bali Pulina where we tried Kopi Luwak. This is coffee that has been ingested by civets. It is renowned to be the most expensive coffee. Civets eat the coffee fruit… More

Our day spent with Putu covered many of the main sites (rice terraces, coffee plantation, largest temple, amazing lunch with a view). What we enjoyed best though was his willingness to share the local culture with us, including explaining religion, tradition and stories of his own family. Also prepped us very well for the harrowing walk through the largest temple… More

    We had putu for a day tour April 10 2013. He was courteous, funny, polite and informative and accommodating to all our needs. We would recommend him for anyone considering a day tour in Ubud.
