We have just returned from beautiful Bali after spending 2 wonderful weeks touring.

Having been to Bali 12 years ago and spending most of our time in Kuta we wanted to venture further from the usual tourist attractions.

After researching many sites on the net for private guides it was a blessing to hire Nick to accompany us throughout Bali with our 2 young daughters. We travelled with Nick for 7 days visiting many sights which simply are not included in the standard package tours which offer no flexibility. Our "wish" list was long and covered all points of the island. Nick was excellent in arranging an itinerary whereby we had the opportunity to experience the "real" Bali.

Nick speaks english beautifully, the best you will find in Bali. He is highly educated and his knowledge of history and culture is outstanding. Our driver, Astra, was amazing and despite the somewhat chaotic driving conditions we always felt safe.

Nick's pride and love for Bali is reflected in his passion for his work. He was very accommodating with unscheduled stops for photo opportunities and always offered us the option to change our itinerary if we so wished. He also recommended several attractions that we were not aware of.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick to anyone wishing a friendly, personalised and cost effective service to show you the best Bali has to offer.

We are extremely grateful to you Nick for your wonderful efforts in making our holiday of a lifetime truly memorable. We hope to return to Bali in the future and we look forward to meeting with you again and have you join us for more fun and adventure.

Many thanks again our friend,

If you're looking for a tourist guide in Bali, Nick is the right choice and he will surely not disappoint you.
It's hard to write a testimonial as it seems that Nick is consistently providing good quality guiding services for tourists all over the world over the past years. Many testimonials here have already faithfully tell how good Nick is as a guide. But I think there's one thing missing. Besides fluent English communication, and wide range of knowledge of history and culture in Bali, what I think makes Nick outstanding is his heart to strive for the best travel experience and benefit for his clients.
I had hired Nick during 4.17-20, 2009 (4 days) as a guide and driver and here are some examples in my trip why I think that Nick has the heart that makes him the best:
In the first day when I went to Taman Ayun, it suddenly rainned cats and dogs, though unfortunately Nick didn't have umbrellas in his car that day, he went to buy for me and my Mum by his own money.
On the second day when we dined on the famous beach with lots of grilled seafood restaurants on it after visiting the Uluwatu, there were some misunderstandings between us and the staff on the price of the food, Nick was there to solve the problem!
Nick was also very patient in the whole trip. He took the initiative to ask if we would like to get off the car and take photos when we passed through a big, gorgeous rice field. Nearly everyday's trip had went over time and Nick did not seem to be in a hurry to leave. Even on the last day, after we reached the airport, Nick left only after seeing us queuing in the correct counter outside(as only passenger can enter the airport).
It's easy to get a guide who speaks fluent English and lots of local knowledge as he/she is trained for it, but it hard to get one like Nick that has the heart. I highly recommand him to everyone, and I will be using his service again in July!

We went to Bali for a weekend getaway. During our 2nd day of tour, on the way to our 1st stop, he proposed a different itinerary in lieu of our original customized itinerary. This was to allow us to experience and see more of Bali, hence maximizing our stay in Bali. All these changes will be at no extra charges. He was perfectly ok with our original itinerary if we decided not to take up his suggestions. But, we took up his suggestions and it proved to be fruitful!! We were able to see experience more about the culture and history of Bali.

We would strongly recommend Nick to anyone looking for a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide and incredible experience of Bali. We could not think of any words to describe how great we feel during the tour.

THANK YOU for the great time, Nick!

With sincere regards,

I highly recommend Nick if you are looking for a tour guide in Bali. Not only can he speak fluent English, but he goes out of his way to accomodate you. He has immense knowledge of the cultural and historical history of Bali. Nick was able to show us the "authentic" Bali and not just what a typical tour would show you. We had the opportunity to see how the locals truly live. Nick is a fabulous tour guide, and a wonderful kind human being, who I now consider a friend!

Nick is a very knowledgeable and consienctious tour guide.Every time he was part of our tour. He would share his knowledge with us about the Balinese culture and traditions that are unique to this beautiful country. Nick was always very helpful and went far beyond what expected of him to ensure our vacation was so enjoyable. He was especially helpful to me when I had the misfortune of losing my wallet in the Denpasar Airport. When he received word from our travel guide about my lost wallet, he immediately went to the airport and made contact with people he knew letting them know what he was looking for and that a reward would be offered. Within a short time, he had located my wallet and made sure the contents of it were returned to me in Canada. In his words, Nick felt he had a moral responsibility to find my wallet for me as he is very proud of his beautiful country and felt this incident may have a negative effect on the tourist industry. I would highly recommend Nick as a tour guide for anyone visiting Bali.

Sincerely,
