    If you want to experience the real Balinese food and family life I would recommend you book this activity with Putu. She is a fine guide and tells you everything about the traditional Balinese kitchen and family life. You get a warm welcome into her village and family home... It was a wonderful experience and we all enjoyed it very much.

    This was an outstanding experience and window into family life in Bali. Right from the moment of our hotel pick-up Putu & her husband Pastor displayed warm hospitality... If you are looking to experience true Bali, then this is an activity you should absolutely do. I give it 10/10! Big thanks to Putu and her whole extended family for making every moment from pick up to drop off enjoyable.

I promise you won’t regret it!
