A great and unforgetable memories in Bali.I did a 16 days tour of Bali and the guide was a wonderful Balinese man whose name was "Ariana". He is a college graduation, for 16 days this man showed us a wonderful country and a tremendous attitude and a constant positive outlook on everything. He had a tremendous knowledge of the island,culture and the history, his English was perfect, and he really made the trip for all of us! He imparted his love of Bali and helped us to know and love the country as well,and it is because of Ariana that everyone there had a wonderful time. His email address is email@example.com and he checks it every day.His mobile is +6281 999 613 110.You can tell him I sent you to him for we still correspond. I would use him again when I go back next year--he is a delight and makes the trip better because he is there. I hope you will be lucky enough to get him.
FOR A LONGER OR MORE COMPLICATED TRIP OR TOUR RATHER THAN USE A TAXI WE HIRE A DRIVER. YOU CAN USUALLY HIRE THEM FOR A FULL OR HALF DAY RATE. IN NOV 2007 WE MET A NEW DRIVER HIS NAME WAS MUDITA. WE DISCOVERED HIM OUTSIDE THE MECURE HOTEL SANUR AS WE WERE WALKING TO FIND A MONEY CHANGER. FOR THE COST OF A TAXI HE DROVE US TO THE MONEY CHANGER . AS WE WERE PLANNING A FEW TRIPS & HE HAD A BRAND NEW PEOPLE CARRIER ( A KIJANG- VERY POPULAR IN BALI WITH THE DRIVERS AS IT TAKES AT LEAST 6 OR 7 PEOPLE.) WE EXCHANGED MOBILE PHONE NUMBERS. THAT IS HOW EASY IT WAS & WE USED MUDITA TO GO SHOPPING TO KUTA & VISIT THE BALI SAFARI MARINE PARK .
IN NOV 2007 FULL DAY RATE WAS 400,000 RP ($50 AUD)
HALF DAY WAS 250,00 RP ( $31 AUD)
A QUICK AND CONVENIENT WAY TO GET AROUND SANUR IS BY TAXI. OUR FAMILY ALWAYS USES THE BLUEBIRD BRAND. WE FIND THEY USE THE METERS AND THE RATE IS SUPER CHEAP COMPARED TO ANY OTHER TAXI SERVICES IN THE WORLD. WE USE THEM TO GET TO RESTAURANTS, TO DROP US AT THE SUPERMARKET. WE EVEN USE THEM FOR THE TRIP INTO KUTA IF WE ARE ONLY GOING TO ONE PLACE & BACK. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF OTHER BRANDS OF TAXI'S STRANGELY ENOUGH ALSO BLUE IN COLOUR BUT A COUPLE OF TIMES WHEN WE HAVE USED THEM THEY TRY TO TAKE THE LONG WAY AROUND AND ALSO THEY TRY TO NOT USE THEIR METER'S.
HAVING A PERSONAL DRIVER IS SUPER!! !!AND GETTING TO GO TO PLACES THAT YOU NEED TO IS THE JOY OF WHAT ..DEAN AND PUTU ARE GREAT AT DOING...ACTUALLY THERE ARE FOUR OF THESE GUYS THAT ARE SUPER AT GETTING YOU AROUND THE ISLAND...... THEY ARE THE BEST!!!IF YOU EVER WANT TO ENJOY BALI. ..GIVE THESE GUYS A CALL!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE CALLED " DRIVER WITH DISTINCTION"....
