Just writing to say how very grateful I am to have your service available! Went to Bali for the first time in February and it was so overwhelming trying to book somewhere nice in a good area without knowing what to do! Finding your page was a godsend! You are so helpful and knowledgeable it’s great to find someone we could trust so our experience was made even better! Thank you for all you do to help people have a great experience in Bali! Kind regards Amanda

I was in Bali with my two kids who were 17 and 14 at the time. We were also holidaying with my friend and her three kids. All of us have been to Bali before and have used Bali Buddy on numerous occasions for booking airport transfers, activities and trips around Bali. This particular trip could have turned into a nightmare. We were waiting for my friends son to come back from the tattoo shop all packed up and ready to go home, Bali Buddy drivers were waiting for us and the time was ticking down for us to get to the airport to catch a plane home. My friend said to to just let the Bali drivers go and we would get a cab but I said no we would just wait. Everyone was anxious. My friends son turned up and we were happily on our way to the airport. Throughout our trip in Bali we had a backpack that had all our important things in like cash and our passports. When we were in the car on the way to the airport I passed the backpack into the back seat, thinking nothing of it. On the way to the airport we were talking with the Bali Buddy driver as he told us that it was his anniversary and was really looking forward to seeing his wife. We arrived at the airport and were lining up and my daughter asked “where is the backpack”. We looked for it and no one had it. I thought crap, we are already late, this is over, I had hope though. I called Nikki through Bali Buddy and she called the driver who was on his way home to see his beautiful wife. The driver turned around and brought the back pack back with all of our passports and cash. Imagine if we ended up getting a cab!! I’m still so thankful to this day for the honesty of Bali Buddy drivers. When we travel to Bali we always use Bali Buddy, Wayan (friend on facebook) they are amazing!!

I have used The Bali Buddy on numerous occasions for accommodation and transport. Highly recommended and praise Niki for all her help finding the ideal accommodation. The boys from the Transport team are extremely professional and knowledgable. One of the most admirable things about Niki and the Bali Buddy team is that they ,in their own time run Charity fundraising for disadvantage people of their country. Giving back in gratitude for having jobs.
If you need to know anything Bali you cannot go past The Bali Buddy

Thanks Bali Buddy! from Michelle Hill & Family (Newcastle, Australia)
My family of 5 (kids aged 9, 12 & 15) have just returned from 2 amazing weeks in beautiful Bali and Nusa Lembongan. Whilst there we used the advice and services of Niki’s team at The Bali Buddy! So lovely having a knowledgeable Australian Bali guru to direct us.
The first of our highlights included our fantastic Bike Baik Tour booked through Bali Buddy. We were picked up around 8am from our hotel in Kuta in a small van by a local guide named Gidday and his friendly driver Wayan. They transferred us to Ubud where we had a local breakfast in a family compound and then headed off on our bike tour. Super safe and well maintained bikes and 3 staff escorting 7 of us. What an amazing experience for our kids. We visited a school, passed through quiet local and rural villages, ran through the rice paddies, stopped off at a coffee plantation, wandered through a traditional family compound and finished off our tour with a superb local lunch of 9 delicious dishes. Gidday was brilliant – expert knowledge, great English, and beautiful Balinese manner. At our request and for an extra few dollars, Wayan took us to visit the township of Ubud before returning us to our hotel around 4pm. What a day!
Another highlight was the majestic sunset at Jimbaran Bay. We used another of Bali Buddy’s drivers, also named Wayan, for this seafood sensation. What a character he was! The most authentic advice and wonderful sense of humour. He picked us up around 5pm and transferred us to a fabulous family Warung (restaurant) on Jimbaran Bay Beach. Here we ate freshly cooked seafood & drank a few cold Bintangs, barefoot at tables on the beach whilst the kids swam until sunset. And what a Sunset it was! Wayan transferred us home safely (whenever we were ready) and entertained us with his conversation along the way. A fabulous night!
We also arranged another driver through Bali Buddy on one of our last few days. Maddy, the world’s safest driver (slow and steady), picked us up at 10.30am and took us to visit some of the surf wear factory outlets. We then headed out towards Ulu Watu with a stop at Dream Beach, the Monkey Temple and Padang Padang Beach. My son caught a few waves at Padang Padang before we headed to Single Fin, an amazing bar that hangs on the clifftops of Ulu Watu. After a few bevies, a well-priced and delicious healthy meal and the most wonderful Ulu Watu sunset you could ever imagine, it was time to head back to Kuta. A bit slow going in the traffic but worth it for the fabulous day out that we had. Maddy was so patient, happy for us to take as long as we needed…we only found out it was his wife’s birthday that day on our way back…he was joining her for a late dinner – we felt bad to hold him up, but again, in true Balinese hospitality, he was totally fine about it. Oh what magnificent people they are!
So, would I recommend Bali Baddy….absolutely!!! But not just because they offer great services and great staff, but also because they love the people they work with. It’s like a family. All of our Bali Buddy drivers were attending a Charity event after we departed, something Bali Buddy organises regularly for some of the poorest local Balinese people. Giving back to the locals. What a company! We’ll be back Bali Buddy. X
