Travel the off beaten path in Bali and go white water rafting down the Telaga Waja River. Despite being in a quiet and secluded area, white water rafting is a wild (albeit safe) water sport that's perfectly suited for nature lovers and adrenaline junkies alike. You'll be assisted by a professional team, so there's nothing to worry about at all. Throughout the 14 kilometer course, you'll get to see beautiful panoramas of mountains, waterfalls, rice fields, and stone cliffs. Around Rendang Village, you'll be greeted by fresh mountain air and (if you're lucky) wild exotic birds. A delicious chef-prepared Indonesian buffet lunch will be waiting for you at the finish point.
Discover the temples and villages that make up the quieter eastern side of Bali. Visit Kusamba, a local fishing village, to see the people mining salt the traditional way.

The village is famous for its unique textile with intricate motifs. Here you'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to Karangasem Royal Palace, built by the first King of Karangasem. Nearby Taman Ujung Sukasada was used as a guesthouse of noble families and foreign official guests of the Karangasem Kingdom.

It was such a very good tour for me. I especially wanna say big thank to Mr.Wira.
His religion is Balinese Hinduism, apparently he can help me to know well about Bali culture. Even he was very kind to buy a Bali grapefruit for me to taste :D
Also Wira is an awesome photographer, will help you to have beautiful photos during the trip. Last but not least, Wira is a gentleman guy ;)
Once again, thank you so much for the trip.
I had a wonderful time with this package tour I got on Klook.
My guide, Madi, was very friendly and helpful. He picked me up on my hotel on-time and he drove all throughout the day very carefully. He was very very kind to take pictures of me on all the places we went to - this was a plus point as I was travelling alone. I did not need to tale selfies anymore tee hee.
The places included on this package were mainly for Bali culture exploration such as what to experience on the water temple and the Bali heritage monument and museum as well as the markets. Foodies will enjoy the Jimbaran beach sunset dinner as the seafood dinner was great - including of course the spectacular view while eating.
Overall, I highly recommend this package for people who want to explore the Bali culture and have a taste of their food as well.
i enjoyed this tour so much. i was the only tourist but enjoyed strolling and taking photos with my tour guide Ms Arie while the driver waited for us. Miss Arie took most of my beautiful photos which am very thankful. This tour is great for any traveler solo, couple or group especially for first time Bali visitor. Thankfully the queue to take photo at the heaven's gate was not very long. was expecting 2 to 3 hrs queue, we only queued for an hour. and the photos were amazing!
Fabulous trip to east Bali with guide Made Rai on 14/1/2020. We saw Goa Lawah temple with bat cave, Tirta Gangga water palace and Lempuyang temple with the Gate of Heaven. Made told us about Bali, about his culture and we had a few laughs along the way. Stopped at Candidasa beach for a quick swim before heading back to our hotel. Highly recommend this tour and our guide Made.
Best experience I had in Bali. They started the tour on time. Comfortable car. Nice driver. Sir Eka was a very nice and knowleadgeable tour guide. He patiently waited for me during the long queue at Lempuyang Temple, carry my bag, he also took nice photos. I was the only traveler who joined the tour but Sir Eka made sure it was a fun experience for me. Highly recommended!
We waited for close to 4 hours before it's our turn. After that, we went to Tirta Gangga Temple which is nice, but didn't spend much time followed by Candidasa Beach, which isn't your Kuta expectation kind of beach, but nonetheless, it has its own beauty. We weren't able to do the full tour as we spent a long time at Lempuyang Temple. At the end of the day, I wouldn't say it is imperative do this tour in Bali, but if updating your Facebook or Instagram feed with a stunning photo from the Gates of Heaven is absolute in your itinerary, you shouldn't give this tour a miss.
