I booked driver in Kuta for three days when I traveled to Bali. His service was excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else.

His English was perfect, and he was very flexible in recommending places to visit around various areas of Bali. He was also very flexible in staying on longer past our booked time to drive us around with very little notice and was very patient and waited for us at every attraction.


My group of friends and I were in Bali for a bachelorette trip. As there were six of us girls, it was hard to travel by taxis as we would either be separated or be charged ridiculously by the taxi drivers. The car arranged by them was clean, spacious and comfortable with very reasonable rates too! The drivers Jes (although sick) and Made were friendly folks. Jes (our primary driver) was helpful and recommended us places to go. I would give them a thumbs up for the experience I had.


First and foremost, i have to say i am really lucky to be able to book Putu on a last min notice to him since he has so many good reviews online and he must be a very busy man, not to mention a hardworking and patient one…

Thanks to the many positive feedbacks here on him, we manage to find a very good and non pushy driver. He is accommodative and doesn’t mind us changing our itinerary on the spot.

We didn’t do as much touring as it wasnt my first time to Bali, it was more of a relaxing trip for me and my boyfriend, and Putu has helped made it better for us.


I cannot recommend Putu enough, we booked him initially for a day but we were so happy that we spent 3 days with him. The ideas he comes up with based on what you enjoy are perfect and he is not over bearing. He leaves you to get on with it but is also very helpful at explain gall about Bali in very good English. He arranged a day trip to Gili T and we had to give him a lot of money up front for the boat ride as he had to pay for it. We totally trusted him to book the tickets and he didn’t let us down. Would definitely recommend,

    I went to Bali with my partner for 8 days. We found Putu on Internet a decided to contact him. He replied quickly and I gave him all the places we wanted to visit. Due to time and limitation, we wanted to make the most of our trip and wanted to hire someone professional to take you to all the places. Putu organised all the trip in such a way we could see everything in one route. In other words, if we were going north we could visit all the places on our list that were on the north and so on. This gave us heaps of time to enjoy the places we wanted to visit, plus cool places suggested by him and free time for us. Putu was great because he was not only driving but also talking to us about balinese culture, interesting facts, funny stories and balinese words which we could practice. He was always on time, very patient and spoke great English. Putu is amazing and we fully recommend him to any type of travel. He is a very reliable, professional and great person . 🙂 Tri ma ka sii!!!(Thank you for everything) Putu 🙂

    We were highly impressed by the excellent arrangements by Putu, starting from airport and during tours. Binni is very humble guy. He was able to advise us on best route for itinerary plan. He had been very helpful through out the trip. His guidance and knowledge for Bali, Balinese culture and knowledge of English helped us enjoying our holidays.

    We had our Bali trip in second week of December 2014 and we are great to have Putu as or tour guide/driver. Putu was very helpful to recommend places and activities which are suitable for family travel with kids, in facts he had recommended some places that we did not manage to find out via online search. We choose to use Putu’s service based on EXCELLENT review in Tripadvisor, and we are totally satisfied with his tour service. Highly recommended!!

  6. Thank you Putu for making our Bali trip very memorable. Thank you for your prompt response to my emails and whatsapp messages. Mr. Kutuk our driver was very professional, honest and punctual. His English was good and he recommended really great places to shop, eat and visit. We will highly recommend you to everyone looking to hire a private driver in Bali.

    Thank you for making our trip to Bali a memorable one.

    I travelled to Bali alone and booked a driver with Putu two times. Can only recommend it, they really know the area and they design the tour after your personal preference.
    Kadek Tosa was very friendly and talkative and the cars are well maintained and with good air conditioning, which is really convenient in Bali.

    Me and my husband highly recommend Putu.
    We found out about Putu on TripAdvisor. There were plenty of recommendations there and we contacted Putu, which answered very quickly.
    The car was in a very good shape, air conditioners, comfortable, etc.
    Our driver was Sudiartha and we were happy, happy together:
    – he drove us whatever we wanted – we had only 2 days, but we saw so many things in a such sort time
    – he waited for us as long as we needed
    – he negotiated for us the prices with the local people when we wanted to buy something
    – he recommended us many wonderful places /sightseeings
    – he told us many things about local culture

    We had an awesome time together.

    Thank you for everything, Sudiartha!

    I traveled to Bali for the weekend while studying abroad in Singapore with 5 of my friends. John was an amazing driver and we had the most amazing day exploring Bali. John definitely exceeded our expectations. Not only did he take us to the destinations we requested, but along the way he offered multiple options for activities he thought we would enjoy such as a gorgeous restaurant on the beach to watch the sunset. We left the day feeling immersed in culture and like we had fully experienced the island. Would definitely recommend Putu driver service and highly recommend John the driver! Can’t wait to come back to Bali!!

    My wife and I would like to thank Ketut for an amazing trip. We were only in Bali for 2 days and were scared we would not be able to see everything . Not only did Ketut take us to everything we wanted but he took us to other places as well and we could not be happier with everything. He made our trip very memorable and we couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you!!

    I contacted PUTU after reading reviews in Trip Advisor and I got an answer immediately. We booked one day before by e-Mail. Our driver KETUT was perfect in time to pick us up at the Hotel and had a lot of Ideas to spend the day. He was very informative and allowed us to spend as much time as we needed at each sight. He was always on time in the spot. Important thing he was safe driver. Overall it was a pleasant and lovely experience. They are very flexible and they help you make the most of your trip/tour by making other suggestions of places to visit when you still have plenty of time to spare. Affordable, reliable and sincere, Next time i will recommend to my friend also KETUT as driver.

    We took a private tour in Bali and it was excellent. Kadek Tosa was our driver and he was great. He picked us up and was very knowledgeable about Bali. He taught us about its culture, religion and took us to many interesting and beautiful places. He was very polite, and an excellent and very safe driver. He was very accomodating and enjoyed showing us a good time. We enjoyed seeing Mt Batur, the Sekumpal waterfall and many other places around Bali. He was very patient with me as I was very slow on the stairs down to the waterfall. Kadek went above and beyond to make sure we had a good day, and I can’t recommend him more highly.

    Our Tour Guide Ray and Driver Ways was the best Team ever. Had a great time from the start and the end. No boring places we went to. We were both in awe at the rich history of Bali and the local trades from silver making, wood carving, Barong dance, Monkey forest etc…think of keeping this 2 the next few days even on a next trip.

    We booked a tour to go trekking up Mount Batur. Our driver, Eka picked us up at 1:30am and drove us to our destination. He was punctual, polite and patient. He knew exactly where he was going so we felt at ease. On the way back to our hotel he stopped at different points so that we could take photos of the beautiful view. I would highly recommend booking Eka to drive you around. Great work Eka 👌


  16. rawouah says:

    My friend and I booked a tour to Mount Batur. Our driver Eka, was punctual, polite and friendly. He knew the area very well so we felt at ease and comfortable with him. I would highly recommend you book Eka as your driver. Great work! Thank you Eka👌
    I will be recommending Eka to all my friends.

    We used this service for 5 days during our holiday in Bali. Our driver Dodik drove us all over the island with his colleague Hery and became our guide, giving us usefull information and suggesting us what to do and what to avoid. Given that we spent many hours in the car with them, we got to know each other and we had a very god time together. A vey good price for a super good service! I would absolutely recommend it!
