MEET THE REAL BALI
Please give us a review on how your experience with ‘Meet the real Bali’ was.
We really enjoyed the activities during our stay in Bali with Komang, Yogi and their sweet and kind family. They drove us to various places on Bali and were always very flexible with the pick up time. They showed us places we wouldn’t have seen without their help. For example the ceremony at the watertemple in Songan was very special and interesting. The waterfall they showed us in Lovina was the best we’ve ever seen and no other tourists around! But most of all eating together with them and learning about their culture and Hindu traditions really made our trip to Bali unforgettable. If we’re ever going back we’ll visit them for sure! Thanks to all of you:-) much love from Amsterdam
Hi Komang and Yogi. I truly hope you will be able to touch many many more tourists like us. Every word is true we ‘Met the real Bali’! Our expirience just wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t meet you guys. Terimakasi banjak!!
My best friend and I had the pleasure of having komang as our guide for the sunrise mt batur trek yesterday.
I’ve done the trek before and wasn’t expecting to experience anything different than usual but komang made it so special for us and actually took us down a separate way than everyone else on the volcano where we got to see the black lava field and take some amazing photos with no one else in sight.
By the end of the hike he really felt like a friend to us and we learnt that his son also worked as a guide on my batur as well.
I recommend anyone in the area to get in touch with these amazing people and support their family in any way. They really do deserve the best and I hope that yogi will one day be able to go to school so that he can get the job he truly wants in the future.

In November 2016 I visited the volcani and met Komang. I was travelling with another three ladies and it was a challenge for me to climb, but I made it halfway, and the others went on to the top for breakfast. We were so impressed with the care and help we received. So much fun, and so rewarding.
Komang encouraged us to go beyond what we thought was possible, and we are richer for the experience
We will never forget that day

In the end of November 2016 we had a great pleasure to meet Yogi and his marvellous family. Yogi was our leader during volcano climbing. I’m not a climber but thanks to him the trip was the best experience during our
whole stay in Bali. Yogi found for us the best spot on the peak so we could enjoy the sunrise with no crowds around. After drinking the most memorable coffee on the top and eating eggs boiled on volcano steam we have visited Yogis family house and have a great opportunity to be the part of Bali true life. Thanks to the people like this wonderful family traveling becomes exploring. Thank you so much! Weronika & Lucas
My husband and I went to Bali in December 2016 for our honeymoon and had the pleasure of meeting Yogi through the Mount Batur Sunrise Hike. Yogi was an awesome guide! Although the hike was fairly challenging for me, he helped make it a great experience. Also, the day of our hike was my husband’s birthday and Yogi + the rest of our hiking companions helped made it a memorable one by singing happy birthday for him at the peak of our hike.
Komang is the best!!! I have so much fun while doing my hiking at bali.. He is very attentive and caring while assisting me to conquered Mt. Batur… Strongly recommended!!!
Thanks Komang, we found a friend in Bali. You showed us the real Bali. Thanks to you, we have discovered beautiful secret Places and it has been so much fun to discover the Island with you. You have certainly driven us everywhere, no matter how far away. You showed us delicious Food and nice Places and we have made many new Experiences. Thank you for that! I hope to see you again and we can get to know Bali and your family even better!
What an incredible experience!! Everything was perfect from the get go. Yogi was extremely flexible with the times and very informative about everything. The hike up Mt. Batur was fantastic and he helped me the whole way! Brilliant!!
Komang was our guide on the trek up Mt Batur and despite not seeing the sunrise at the top because of the fog, we had an enjoyable day. Luckily as the fog cleared on the way down we had a fantastic view of the lake and crater. In fact we got on so well with Komang that we asked if he would take us on a tour a few days later. He is passionate about Bali, the people and culture and he wants tourists to get to know more about the real Bali.
Komang picked us up early to get to Lovina before sunrise to see the dolphins. We went on an outrigger fishing boat and as the sun rose were amongst a school of dolphins. On the way back we also did some snorkelling surrounded by tropical fish. The other side of Bali around Lovina is so different from the crowded surf beaches of Kuta and Seminyak – peaceful and uncommercialised.
On to the Sacred Hot Springs of Banjar for a relaxing soak, then a change up to the beautiful Aling Aling waterfalls with the added excitement of sliding and jumping into the deep pools below.
Other highlights of the day were eating local food together while looking down at the view of the lakes; the picturesque temple Pura Ulan Danu on the shore of Lake Bratan and the amazing scenery on the drive.
Our experiences with Komang have left us with many great memories of Bali and the people. He is genuine and friendly with a great sense of humour (and loved taking photos for us and answering all of our questions). When we return to Bali we will definiteley contact Komang to show us more, and we also recommend him to others.

Two days we enjoyed the hospitality of Komang and we can say that he’s the best guide of Bali! Komang brings everything together, not only information about what you see, but also the traditions, history and romance behind it. He speaks very good english and knows the answers on all of your Balinese questions. We have enjoyed his experiences during the climbing of the Batur Vulcano and during a whole day when he was our guide (and driver) in a trip from Ubud to Lovina. Thanks again Komang for the wonderful time we did spend with you. We would recommend you to all our friends who will come and visit Bali!
We had a fantastic trip to Bali and enjoyed having Komang as our guide. He took us to places that we would not have seen. I would advise anyone to travel to the north of Bali; Komang will show you some beautiful areas in the less touristy north.
