Airport transfer was great

I had Komang for my airport transfer yesterday and he was fantastic, thank you so much. He was so kind ad helped me stop for snacks on the way to canggu. Because I'm travelling by myself I felt so much safe than taking a taxi, especially after the stories i've heard. Great service!

Putu is awesome!

Thanks Michael. Your driver booking service is outstanding value and such amazing service!! Putu took us to Aling-Aling and gitgit and then the floaring temple and tanah lot temple...what a MAGIC DAY!! He's great. Thanks again.

Great advice!

This really has helped me plan my family's holiday so much Michael. I used to just change traveller's cheques or cash at the hotels I stayed at and I knew it was expensive but I didn't trust using money changers or ATMS. Now I know! I'm sending this to all my friends. Thank you again, it really is a wonderful resource.

Thank you!!!

I know about 3 of these but 2 are new for me. My boyfriend and I went to Sari Organik yesterday after walking through the rice fields and it was amazing!!! Thank you for making great recommendations!!!

Loving your recommendations!

Thanks for all your recommendations Michael. We haven't just followed your guides on money and booked a tour through you but we just booked 2 of the restaurants on this list to treat ourselves while here in Bali. Thanks!!

I’m sending this to all my friends!!

You are better than our travel agent back at home Michael. Thank you so much for listing all the attractions and making the guide map. Seriously we had no idea where some of these were so for a planning tool it's awesome!!! We picked out 4 days worth of day tours and made a list of which attractions to see on each day and it made it sooo easy. Thank you so much ?

Great confidence builder!

I was always too scared to get taxis until now. Been here a few times but just reading this everything makes sense. I now take a private driver for longer trips and make sure the meter is on in a bluebird taxi on shorter trips before letting him get going. And I always tip the Grab guys to make up for the dirt cheap price!

Seriously great waterfall guide!

My boyfriend and I have been ticking off as many waterfalls on your list as possible and absolutely having a ball in Bali!! Big thank you from Christina and Marcus!!

Great advice, very practical

Hi Michael. Love your writing and how practical you explain everything. Especially the locations of the best ATMS in Seminyak. Really gives us the confidence to use them because we have heard many horror stories from friends who had their card skimmed.

Being polite in temples

I've been to Bali before and planning another trip with my wife and kids. Your knowledge about how to be polite at temples is really useful stuff. I've seen people with phones going off before and it was horrible, but some of the other points I didn't know about. Great confidence builder. Thanks Michael!

The best travel advice about money ever!!

I went to Bali last year and had my card swallowed and now I know why!! About to go on my second trip with the girls and you have the best travel advice about money ever!! I always thought some of those ATMs were dodgy but now I know it's ok to get money from the airport or from one at a bank.

The perfect start to our holiday!!

We were so thankful we planned ahead and booked your driver. Immigration took ages and we were hot and sweaty and the kids were getting tired when we got through, so it was such a welcome relief that we saw Putu exactly where you instructed us to meet him. So many taxi drivers yelling for our attention!!! If we didn't have your advice arriving would have been a disaster. Thank you so much Michael. You're the best!!!

Truly amazing!

Thank you Michael for providing such an amazing service and advice. The driver you reserved for us (Putu) is truly amazing! He took great care of us on all the days we booked and took us to places we never even knew about!! He was really cool about waiting for us when we went over time at some places and clearly knows all your secret trails. We had such a wonderful time and was the highlight of our trip to Bali. We are already booking our next trip!!!
