driver and guide, Komang, gave us the opportunity to experience real Bali for a day. We were completely free to choose any destination, and Komang fully understood our desire to see the real
Bali, away from the tourist destinations. We had the best day, including an impromptu visit to Komang's primary school, where we were greeted by the delightful children with waves, smiles and
cheeky "Hello's" This was followed by a visit to his garden and many exotic fruit trees, with an explanation of the cocoa to chocolate process. We ate the cocoa seeds, yum! Then to his family
temple and family house enclosure, whereupon his uncle hopped on his scooter and went off to buy us Balinese treats, and Komang made us Bali coffee which we enjoyed seated on a mat outside his
house. He explained and showed us his community Subak cultural rice field irrigation system, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Listing. We visited the Baturiti Agro tourism coffee plantation, and
tasted LUWAK coffee, the most expensive coffee in the world.
His car is modern with air conditioning and very comfortable. He is a safe and excellent driver, with a very good command of the English language, as well as a warm and personable nature, and
great sense of humour. His knowledge of all things Balinese is wonderful, how the spiritual and physical world are one.
The day out with Komang was amazing value for money, and definitely the highlight of our holiday in Bali, and we thoroughly recommend him to you.
