We hired Kadek on Saturday to drive us around a few sights in Bali. Can't recommend him enough. Such a really nice guy, who is a excellent host. I have hired other drivers in the past and they don't even come close to the service and quality provided by Kadek Sutisna. Can't wait till next time."

10/10 Superstar Driver - BEST IN BALI !!
"Don't hesitate and just book him.
He is a top driver,
He is friendly,
He is a 10/10 person,
He has a clean car and a great attitude,
Always on time,
Fantastic with children.
He is hands down the best driver I have ever had in Bali and I have hired many.
Don't waste your time with anyone else and hire these guys they are the best in Bali !!
You are a superstar Kadek !!!"
"We found Kadek through his website and arranged for him to organise tours of places that our wives wished to visit. Kadek organised all we wanted to see and sent his driver Nyoman to be our driver for our tours.
What a wonderfully patient and knowledgeable man he was. My daughter had her baby with her and he accommodated so well and did a little reorganising due to time constraints.
I cannot speak highly enough of Nyoman and I was disappointed we never caught up with Kadek but I am sure he is as competent as Nyoman and I cannot recommend his service more highly. His service is the best!"
"Kadek is a really wonderful driver, both technically capable and friendly and pleasant to be around.
My husband, I, and my parents toured (most of!) Bali over five days. The days were long - most around 8 hours - but never felt it. Everyone had a great time. Kadek and I had arranged things we would like to see via his comprehensive resource sheets, and I left the arrangement of the day to his road and traffic expertise. As such, we saw everything we would have liked to see, and had a really joyful time with Kadek as he assisted us into and out of, each drop-off location.
Communication was always kind and quick. Messaging, emails, and texts were always prompt and pleasant. The vehicle was nice, clean, roomy, and reliable - easy enough to get in and out of for four adults.
I would definitely recommend Kadek as a driver during your stay in Bali. I'm sure it will make your experience all the more wonderful, as it did ours."
"Kadek was already booked on one of the days we had requested so his partner, Gede, looked after us. His car was clean and he drove safely. He did suggest places to visit that's on our way to our hotel but he's not the type to force you to go to places you would not want to. But the rain was pouring anyway and with a kid in tow, we just headed straight to our hotel and waited for the rain to stop. Our trip was short but uneventful and comfy.
We were able to book Kadek on a different day. Kadek is a trustworthy chap who always wears a smile. Not a dull moment with him. His vehicle was very clean, AC was cool and as a bonus - has 2 tv screens, perfect for entertaining the little one on our travels (he carries a bunch of dvds with him). He accompanied us at Tegalalang and shared some insights about the place. A safe driver, I can't recommend him enough.
Thanks for a lovely time Kadek, we'll see you again when we come back. =)

"Kadek became so close to me, my husband and my son that he was more like a family to us...
His driving is comfortable, amazing patience, car condition is great, good English.
Being a local is a great advantage. He suggested with choice of hotels to book beforehand, while in India. His email response is quick. And we went with his suggested hotels n places... And it was awesome.
His car is equipped with small TV behind the seats, comes with stroller, baby car seat and umbrella and all in great condition.
We suggest him for your Bali bookings. Completely reliable and awesome guide. He knows Bali in and out.
Loved the time we all had with you in those 8 days Kadek.
Good luck and God bless you!"

"We have just returned from a trip to different locations in Bali and spent most of our time there being looked after by Kadek. He was smiling as he waited for us at the airport and stopped to allow us to exchange money on our drive to Ubud.
We spent a day touring close to Ubud and then after some free time Kadek was there to pick us up from our hotel and drive us to Lovina, Pemuteran, back to Lovina and finally to Sanur. He had arranged certain tours for us e.g. dolphin watching from Lovina and snorkelling to Menjangan Island which we paid for at the time but knew all costs upfront and were picked up from our hotel and returned there as well.
Kadek was a fountain of knowledge on Bali life and the different areas we visited and was also interested in discussing how our life in Australia differed from life in Bali. I travelled with my 7-year old son and Kadek had a child booster seat in the car at all times and even arranged a proper life-jacket for him.
Kadek added to our experiences during our holidays and I would highly recommend taking him up on the offer to show you 'his' part of Bali as well as the better known southern locations. You will feel that you have a friend in Bali.
Thank you Kadek!"
"On an 11 day trip through Bali, we (2 ladies) found Kadek via TripAdvisor as he was recommended by other travellers. And indeed he was ! Very responsive (always within 30 mins) whether is was by email or WhatsApp, reliable (he drove us through most of the country), a safe driver (we went though mountains in heavy traffic and pouring rain), honest in his prices, good spoken English and very friendly (without bringing us to places we didn't want to go).
When he could not make it, he sent his colleague (but that never happened as he managed to free himself up). His car is well maintained and clean. He always prepared the trips, making sure he checked the route before setting off (some of the places he had never been to) and always on time (if not early).
Definitely someone to recommend, we will be asking for his services on our next visit for sure!"

"We had a great time with Kadek.
Communication was very good in advance, he answers his Mails quickly and has very good english. He was very punctual as well, when he took us.
We enjoyed the beauty of Bali while we didn’t have to worry for our luggage which we left with him in the car. While driving, he told us many interesting things about Balinese life and culture.
We spontaneously decided to book with him also for our return trip a few days later and he organised one of his partners to take us. Also Komang was a great driver and we can only recommend both of them!"

We just got back from Bali and had the most amazing driver I had to share it. He has kids seats (Australian approved) which are fitted perfectly, he came 15 mins early to our resort. Then we got into his immaculate car with a huge huge boot and our kids went nuts as there was dvd players in the back of the headrests - perfect for the long drives often in Bali. The car was air conditioned beautifully, and he was super accommodating. We changed our itinerary a couple of times and he stopped for toilets stops for our 2 yr old. He was lovely and helpful with the kids and I have nothing bad at all to say about him - he was amazing. He was so good that we want to book him before we book the flights next time to make sure he is available! His name is Kadek and if you go to Bali, seriously consider contacting him - you'll love that you did! (especially if you have kids and want them in car seats!)
"My wife and I are very very happy that we had the joy and privilege to visit Bali for three days with Kadek. He helped us decide where to go, suggested many places we had not thought of, is a safe driver, funny and polite, an excellent companion and personalizes the Bali cultural and hospitality experience. Choose Kadek and you will appreciate your Bali trip even more than you can imagine.
Thank you my friend for this beautiful time in Bali ;o)

"My friend and I travelled over to Bali for 5 nights on the 2nd of October 2014, I thought it would be best to book someone to show us around Ubud and the surroundings for the day before we left, so I found Kadek on trip advisor and read all the comments and thought I'd email.
From the first email I knew he was the right driver for us!!! So prompt and happy to answer any question. So we arranged to be picked up at 8.30. He was there early waiting to open the doors for us with a wonderful greeting and smile!! He showed us around so many wonderful places in 1 day, and taught us so much about Bali. The vehicle was great aswell, he always made sure we were comfortable!! I can HIGHLY recommended Kadek to ANY traveller!!! Thanks Kadek!!!! We had a amazing day with you!!

"Dear fellow travellers,
I had the pleasure to be driven around Bali by Kadek Sutisna in June 2014 and I would like to share my experience with you.
I knew very early during the driver selection process that Kadek would be my first choice by the way he handled our email correspondence. His response time was diligent, he would answer all questions to the best of his abilities, and his written English was very clear and polite.
When I met Kadek in person these impressions were confirmed. Kadek was punctual, kind, patient, flexible and honest. He had good knowledge of his country and spoke good English. The car was clean, comfortable, spacious, and Kadek drove safely. It was a pleasure to ride with a smiling person who was always in a good mood.
For all these reasons I warmly recommend Kadek’s services especially to single woman traveler like me on this trip.

"Thank you Kadek for making our first trip to Bali a total success! We truly appreciate the high level of service we received, and have already begun recommending you to our friends.
Our main priority for our family holiday was to find a driver that was trust worthy (we would not put our children in a car with someone we did not trust), had great English skills, non smoker, punctual, large car, experienced personal driver, knowledge of both touristy and amazing out of the way locations, and a safe driver - you were all of these :) AND you had car seats for our three children (4yrs, 2.5yrs and 9mths).
We saw many of the breath-taking sites Bali had to offer, and look forward to one day returning and seeing more of the island. The children still say their favourite part of the holiday was "riding in Kadek's car to the zoo and the beach".
Thank you once again, having you as our personal driver really meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday.

"Thank you Kadek for taking such good care of me and showing me so much of your lovely country.
Travelling solo has never been so much fun. You are even great at getting out of tight parking spots!

"We visited Bali in March, 2014 and Kadek was recommended to us as a driver. I emailed him to organise our pickup from the airport and he replied within the hour. He asked if we needed any car seats or DVD players for the kids which was great as we did a couple of day tours and the kids were happy watching their movies on the drive. We found Kadek to be a soft natured man, speaks good English, has a fabulous sense of humour and is a safe/cautious driver.
We would highly recommend him to anyone, especially families with children.

"Dear Kadek, thank you so much for your friendly service the past 2 days. My mum & I have enjoyed our holiday in Bali very much.
All the best to you & your family.

"I just want to thank you for looking after myself and my family so wonderfully on our recent trip to Bali.You definitely went above and beyond to ensure that our holiday was both enjoyable and safe.
Your knowledge and willingness to help us was fantastic, especially when you stood and helped my mum with those pesky monkeys in Uluwatu on their final day. I have already recommended you to one of my colleagues, even though i’ve only been back in work a day and a half, and will continue to do so to anyone who speaks about bali drivers, both personally and on trip advisor.
I am looking forward to getting back to Bali again and when I do you will be the first person I contact.

"We loved having Kadek as our personal driver while on holiday in Bali. He was so hospitable, doing his best to ensure we enjoyed every moment.
We loved going around local markets etc looking and buying produce, it felt like so much more of a cultural experience than just the ' usual tourist route'. I certainly believe having Kadek's local knowledge allowed us to get much more out of our holiday than if we'd done it on our own. I'd recommend his service to anyone heading to Bali, the price was very affordable also.

"A big thank you for taking care of me during my recent birthday trip. The 5 day trip spent with you was very enjoyable and unforgettable. I am so surprised with your kindness and politeness towards me.
Your courtesy and driving skills to make sure safety is number one priority during touring the whole day. I also want to thank you for recommending me to stay at Rambutan Lovina Hotel and Pajar House. I am totally amazed by the picturesque scenery and culture of your country. This trip was a truly awesome experience that I ever had.
I will definitely come back to visit Bali and hope to see you again! Thank you so much for your great service throughout the journey.

“For 7 days, Kadek showed me the beauty of Bali and her people. He was always patient, helpful with friendly advice, and smiling.
Together, we marvelled at the magic of Gitgit Waterfalls, Uluwatu, Tanah Lot, Lovina, Mt. Kintamani and Lake Batur, amused ourselves at Monkey Forest, walked through bustling Sukhawati Market in search of cloth and buttons to tailor-make my baju, a Balinese style shirt, and had delicious nasi campur at the warungs for lunch.
The highlights of the trip were meeting Kadek's sisters and brother along the way and visiting his home and family temple at Singaraja, where he introduced me to his lovely wife and two young sons. We had a nice time at Banjar Hot Springs that day.
I love Bali and my Balinese friends. Om Swasti Astu.

"Prior to our trip to Bali, I Googled and found Kadek, with a string of good recommendations from his customers.Interested, I emailed him and we discussed about our itinerary before we went Bali. The initiative taken by Kadek to discuss the itinerary over emails was good as it helps to save time discussing itinerary when we met up with Kadek. It also helped very much that Kadek was very prompt in replying and suggested alot of places that we can visit.
When we first saw Kadek on our first day, he came and pick us up from our hotel and he was really punctual, and always arriving ten minutes earlier before our appointment time. Though we were always late in meeting him, but Kadek is always punctual,patient and friendly!
Having been to Bali before, I decided to seek his help in suggesting other places of interest and good food places. Kadek brought us to some of the most awesome places for food, that are both affordable and fantastic such as Made Warang! The Jimbaran seafood dinner that he recommended was also fantastic.
Kadek also makes an effort to ensure that you are comfortable in his ride. He ensures that the air-conditioning is just right for you, and he even does some commentary of the places that we drive past. And the plus point is, his car is really clean and comfortable! Being a rather spontaneous person, I always have last minute places to visit, and Kadek is always very flexible in adding them in, which we were really glad and thankful for his service.
Kadek is the sort of driver that is responsible, punctual, patient, professional and flexible. He goes the extra mile to ensure that your trip to Bali is definitely an awesome one! My partner and I really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves as we just left our tour plans to Kadek.
If you are looking for a personal driver in Bali, Kadek is someone you would definitely want to hire!
