Some recommendation found on Trip Advisor…

Dear Putu, I just want to say how delighted I was with your service as part of our national conference. Even though our key note speaker accidentally supplied the wrong flight number and wrong time, you had the initiative to look up his website to see what he looked like and then chose to wait at the airport for at least an hour until you found him. I was truly amazed that you did manage to find him and was really impressed when you also took him on a tour of the conference venue upon his arrival. Your service was exceptional and your price very competitive. I would highly recommend your services to any other organisation wanting to transfer their special clients from one destination to another in Bali. Thanks again! Daniel Tab

Your Bali Driver Private Tour

I was lucky to meet a nice couple who introduced me this driver guide.His name is Dewa. He speaks good English.My bf and I hired him for one day for water rafting and sunset at Tanah lot temple. Tour started from 11am-6pm. I’v checked most tour leaflets for such tour which costed you pretty much the same price. Hence,I might pay bit more compared to all the other local tours.It’s def worth it for a private tour. Still,do’t get the high price idea may just hire him to drive you around at certain price.You may find it even cheaper to hire him rather than other group tour, if you are in group of 4-6people. You may be offered similar service by random cab drivers at the same price. To me,he’s quite honest and professional.I would recommend you to go for him.

If anyone is heading to Bali and looking for a great guide, we just used Putu and he was fantastic. Was very knowledgeable and helpful in setting our itinerary for a day trip, but was also flexible and adapted plans according to our interests and stamina. His english is good, and his rates are very competitive so worth giving him a shot. His web page is and can also reach him at, ph: +62 081 856 2867.

Just returned from a very enjoyable first time trip. With TA guidance, we chose Putu Sudiana from the driver section of the “Before You Go” header and couldn’t have been happier. We had set up our daily itineraries beforehand, but ended up making many adjustments as we went along dictated by our mood and interests at the moment. Putu was very accomodating, upbeat and most importantly: trustworthy. We over-shopped and he even arranged separate pick-up of our purchases and consolidation for shipment homeward. We highly recommend this knowledgable young man to anyone who seeks ultimate schedule flexibility at very reasonable prices (USD$40/10 hour day or $4.00/hour). Contact information:; You won’t be disappointed.

PUTU SUDIANA when looking for your Bali Driver

Jan 21, 2009
We cruised to Bali last week and spent the day with Putu Sudiana. I would highly recommend Putu. We had the most wonderful day. He was right on time, a careful driver and an excellent guide. Very proud of his island home and took us to unique places. Thanks to Putu, our day on Bali will remain with us forever. I wish him every success for his future and hope to see him again one day.

I too used Putu Sudiana for a few days at the end of February and agree with the other posts.
I only had 3 days in Bali and wanted to see as much as possible. Putu suggested an itinerary which I enjoyed very much. Even had some Cafe Lewak.

Putu was our driver for 5 days in Bali. From Ubud, we explored all wind directions. Putu was a very safe and courteous driver. He was timely, flexible and made good enhancements to our proposed itineraries taking into account our preferences. He is very competitive and I can strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest and hard working driver in Bali.

My wife and I had an amazing 5-day trip to Bali. We hired Putu Sudiana as our personal driver for all our excursions after checking a number of websites and reviews, such as Trip Advisor. Putu was always on time if not early for all our excursions. He is very knowledgeable of the island as he is a local Balinese. Most of all, Putu is honest, friendly, hardworking, and a very safe driver. His car is clean, has leather seating, comfortable, and air-conditioned. When it rained, he had an umbrella for us. Water was also provided, and we even got to connect our iPod to the stereo system in the SUV. We changed our itinerary a few times, but that wasn’t a problem. Putu was very flexible with us and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our trip. On our last day after a full day out, we asked Putu to recommend a place to get a massage so we could shower afterwards before our evening flight. He brought us to a local Balinese place so we could get the best price before dropping us off personally to the airport. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and much of this was due to having a great driver. You can contact Putu at or visit his website
Thank you Putu for all your help. We wish you and your family all the best and hope to see you again next time we’re in Bali.

We booked Putu before coming to Bali. It was such a relief to meet him & know instantly that we had done the right thing. He took care of everything. Having Putu for 3 days, just took all the worry out of travelling. He was immaculate himself & had a clean comfortable airconditioned car. His warm personality & knowledge of Bali meant that we relaxed & made the most of our holiday. Sometimes we told him our itinerary for the day, other times he made suggestions which were all brilliant. He was absolutely honest & fun to be with. We can highly recommend Putu to anyone visiting Bali. He will take care of you.

Hi Putu,

I came by your website after some recommendations from TripAdvisor.

I am looking for a tour guide for a couple of hours on 17th June 2011 (next Friday) to bring 4 people (including myself) to Uluwatu for a sunset view and the fire dance.

We will be landing at the airport at 2.50pm and would proceed to the hotel (Kuta Seaview Resort) straight after that.

So, we should be looking at starting the tour about 4pm or so..head to Uluwatu which takes about an hour from Kuta (am I correct?), view the sunset and firedance.

Please respond the soonest.

Ivory Chan.

Putu was more than just a driver, he became a friend. He was ALWAYS on time, he NEVER worried if we ran longer than anticipated, and he was quick to make excellent suggestions when we asked. Like China, Bali driving is pretty crazy and you’ll want someone both very safe and expedient. Putu is both and he receives my highest recommendation.
For a little less than $6 USD per hour on the days you need him, you can have a professional driver and new friend… this is a great investment!

My name is Jutatip. I am going to bali sometime on October with my son ( two of us ). We are interested to visit : 1. Tohpati 2. Celuk 3. Mas (woodcarving village) 4. Kintamani (active volcano and lake batur) 5.Tegenungan (waterfall) 6.Tegallalang (best rice terrace) 7.Ubud (lokal market, saren place) 8.Mengwi (royal famili temple of taman ayun) 9. Tanah Lot. How much for the price? What is it included such as driver, petrol,….?

Hi Putu,
Are you available on January 12th? I will be visiting Bali for a week. There will be a total of 4 adults. We definitely want to have a full day tour on the 12th and most likely several other days as well. Hope you are available.

Same as what I wrote on Tripadvisor:

Putu is wonderful! He was highly recommended by a colleague who used his services. I can see why! I first contacted Putu by email and he replied promptly stating that he was available to be our driver during our stay in Bali.

THERE ARE MANY COMPANIES/DRIVERS PRETENDING TO BE PUTU SUDIANA! They are ripping him off and using HIS reviews! PLEASE only contact him through Tripadvisor or his website. Make sure the link goes to “”, anything else is basically an attempt to leverage his reviews. Some people have already posted nice reviews (thinking they were posting it for Putu) on other forums praising Putu, but when you click on the link on that page, it will take you to some other driver or site.

Putu’s email address is
His website is
**Please make sure you land at the information above if you are trying to contact Putu.

During our stay in Bali, I would just email him and let him know our plans for the next day.
We were in Bali for 6 days and used him everyday we needed a driver (4 days).

Reasons you should use Putu:
1. He is punctual (usually early).
2. He is a gentleman! He always asked my wife and I if everything was ok and made sure we were having a good time.
3. He knows where to go and will always advise you with your best interest in mind. We wanted to go rafting and he drove to us to a company near the Ayung River. Our raft guide was excellent and rafting was SO much fun. My wife only did rafting because I wanted to, but in the middle of it, she was singing along with our raft guide and even jumped into the water to cool off and totally loved it! Big thanks to Putu for bringing us to a great, safe, fun rafting company!
4. He will tailor your itinerary to YOUR needs. We told him we wanted to do x, y, and z, and he knew how long each would take and figured out all the logistics for us.
5. He works hard so he can send his son to school- which he doesn’t stop talking about 🙂
6. His rate is very reasonable.
7. His car (really an SUV) and air-conditioning work VERY WELL! I get motion sickness sometimes, and his SUV is smooth and as cool as needed. When you put his AC on ‘low’, it’s the same as ‘high’ in other cabs in Bali. This helped keep us cool and helped beat the Bali heat.
8. He helps you bargain! Always bargain in Bali!! I would bargain, and then call him over, to make sure I’m getting a good deal, sometimes he even bargained for us!
9. He will show you the REAL Bali! He took us through the back roads of Bali- A MUST!! He really enjoyed it with us.

Ask him to take you to the coffee plantation if you like coffee. The coffee is a bit pricey (if you decide to buy that is), but it was very cool/pretty/fun. They let you sample about 8 coffees for free!

Thanks Putu!

We booked Putu for 9 full days out of our 17 days stay in Bali. Unfortunately he was busy so he sent his brother Gede Adi to be our driver. To our surprised Adi was very friendly and polite, and extremely punctual(always on time and even showed up early most of the time). Not only did Adi show us the life style of Bali, but he is also very knowledgable. We got a chance to stop at many different local restuarants and taste the favourites dishes of Bali. There was a time when we hiked Mount Batur’s volcano, he managed to used his spare time to go fishing and cooked up a big lunch with the fishes he caught that morning. A warn and generosity personality like Adi is rare to find for a driver in Bali. Once, we were literally scammed by one of the park’s tour guide who claimed that we must pay extra $150,000.00 Rupiah if we want to hike to the summit of Batur’s volcano from the Sunrise area which we already paid for. Hence big THANK YOU to Putu for going out of his way to file a complaint to the National Park Department in order to bring fareness to his guests and got our scammed money returned.

Overall, Bali was a memorable vacation for us and we are glad to meet honest and dependable people like Putu and Adi whom made our vacation even more relaxed and enjoyable!!! We can highly recommend Putu and Adi to anyone visiting Bali and need personal transportation and guides.


I will arrive in Bali on 21st and will stay there for a few days. What is the best price if we hire you for four full days? Only 2 persons.


Having been to Bali many times, I wasn’t looking forward to haggling tour prices on the street. Finding Putu’s website reduced that stress. My two adult daughters & myself enjoyed Putu’s company on Tuesday 24th March 2012. After visiting Ubud markets we changed our tour plans & Putu was very accomodating & flexible when we asked him to take us to other places. He is friendly & professional & I would recommend his service to everyone.His vehicle is very comfortable,roomy,clean & new. As an experienced traveller to many parts of Asia it was a welcomed relief to find such a nice person who looked after us while in his company.Thank you very much Putu. See you next time.Kay

Hi Putu, I’m arriving on 29th May and there are 4 of us. Could we inquire the price of a half day tour on 29th May (including a drop off at our hotel at Mengwi – Balam Bali Villa) as well as 4 to 5 days tour from 30th May onwards. Thanks

I had made a reservation with Nyoman through internet before arrival at Bali. Unfortunately, Nyoman is busy and Gede Adi (also Putu brother) turns up in the airport and become our driver during the whole trip at Bali. First impression is we felt so sorry to let him wait for us in the airport holding signboard with my name on it for two hours due to the flight delay and long queue in the custom clearance. Luckily, he didn’t abandon us as the information given to him is very least through the mail.

We have a good shopping time at a few famous painting and jewelers shops with good quality and reasonable price under his good recommendation. Also, he provides advice on what to be aware during the temple visit as well as the fantastic Balinese culture sharing along the journey.

Sincere thanks for a job well-done and your patience throughout the whole trip at Bali. Our impression of the whole trip is memorable and perfect. Your professionalism is most appreciated by us all. Will definitely recommend you to my friends if they coming to Bali for a leisure trip 😀

Once again, our heartfelt thanks to you Gedi!

We had contacted Putu for our recent trip to Bali. Putu’s responsiveness on email queries was extremely quick and professional. Since he was not available on all the days , he sent us his brother Gede to act as the driver and guide for our trip.

Right from the time Gede picked us up at the airport , it was an very enjoyable experience. He is a safe and patient driver . He was also flexible wrt the itinerary and made some good suggestions for our consideration. He was always on time and cheerful in spite of some long drives. He was also quite knowledgeable wrt Bali – the various sites, eating places and shopping. On the last day , Putu was with us and showed the same kind of professionalism and punctuality.

Their professionalism , patience , humility & knowledge of Bali was very impressive and we really appreciate this. Thank You – Putu and Gede !

I have no hesitation in recommending Putu transport for anyone’s needs in Bali. We will certainly recommend him to our friends when they visit Bali.

Called up Putu after finding a review of him on tripadvisor. Very patient and accommodating with our group being able to work with all our request. He always wanted to make sure we were satisfied and had good recommendations of places to see and services to try out. His brother Nyoman also took us out for a day. Nyoman is a very fun loving guy and there was hardly a dull moment with him. Both brothers are great drivers and tour guides. They know a lot about Bali and we would use their services again when we come back.

We had a wonderful holiday in Bali during the 13th to the 17th of June 2012. Gede was our driver since Putu unfortunately had an appointment during our visit. He arrived at our hotel on time and was always wearing a friendly smile. Although he is young, his skills and safe driving always makes us feel comfortable. He was very patient when there were traffic jams. Furthermore, Gede was a great photographer and took many professional photos. He has many interests such as hiking (volcanoes!), fishing and even deep-sea diving. We will be sure to ask for his services when we visit Bali again and will definitely recommend him to our friends if they go to Bali.
Thank You Gede!!

Putu replied to my queries quite promptly but it was his brother, Gede Adi who became our guide and driver during our stay in Bali. Even though we had not expected Gede Adi, everything had still turned out well and good. He is a safe and steady driver and we like his soft-spoken and sweet mannerism. We can also see that he is committed to making our stay in Bali an enjoyable and happy one. Even though I have not taken many photos on this trip, almost all the photos have turned out more beautiful than I have expected. Each stop we made – Pura Trita Empul, Gunung Kawi, Lovina, Lake Buyan, Lake Tamblingan, Lake Bratan, Mount Batur, Kintamani, Ketut Liyer!! – was a memorable experience. I will certainly recommend that you request for Gede to be your driver!

We hired Putu Sudiana as our driver in Bali.
Putu is not just a driver but a friend and very experienced quide which show us very beautiful places in Bali. Putu show us the best restaurants in Bali especially grilled fish next to volcano. If anybody want to have driver in Bali do not hesitate to choose Putu.
I really think that Putu Sudiana is the best driver in Bali. When we will go next time to Bali I am pretty sure that we will contact him again.

Danubia & Andrew

Im staying at four seasons Jimbaran and looking for a driver this Thursday to see a few temples and Ubud. Please let me know if you can accommodate me.

hi, I would like to say thank you to your good service during my holiday at Bali. Our driver Mr .Gede , he is very friendly & kindness . He making our stay in bali a stress free and most memorable one ! We very satisfied with his service. He take care of all our needs ,recommends good places to go and eat.

We surely appreciated and will recommend to all my friend and others who going to bali.

From : Ms Toh soo fong & family ( Malaysia)

Found Putu’s email from Tripadvisor. When we arrived Bali, it was Putu’s Brother, Gede Adi. Quite a quiet and shy guy initially, but he was patient and good through-out the journey. Everything turns out good during our days there and went to places he introduced like the Volcanoes. We like the pressured chicken he recommend and would introduce more friends to use their service.

My two kids and I used Putu’s services on our recent visit to Bali. We had the pleasure of having Gede Ada as our driver for two days. Gede was very punctual, friendly and informative. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and was at our service for the entire day and always wore a friendly smile. Gede showed us how to deal with monkeys, hidden viewing spots of attractions, explained customs, helped us barter at markets for the right prices and took us to great “non tourist” restaurants. His air conditioned car was spotless each day and we felt safe at all times. Towards the end of our first day with Gede my son said “Can Gede come with us tomorrow? I like him, he’s cool!” I highly recommend Gede and he comes at an amazing price. Do not visit Bali without using this service – at about $45 for a day it’s a steal!

Dear Putu,

I will be in Bali from 29 to 1 Aug and would like to engage your service on 30 July to the below locations. Would appreciate if you can get back to me soon.

1) Uluwatu Temple
2) Kintamani Volcano
3) Tegalalang Rice Terrace
4) Taman Ayun Temple
5) Tenah Lot Temple
6) Sunset at Jimbaran

I came across Putu’s website while planning for my Bali trip recently. I gave him a call just before I flew into Bali & hired him to bring my wife & I around. We had Gede to be our driver & guide for two days. As we didn’t plan out our itinerary, he gave us great recommendations on sights to see, places to visit, nice & inexpensive restaurants to eat in. He was also always early with his well kept MPV. He was like a friend to us. We really appreciate his service & will definitely use him again the next time we visit Bali.

Hi Putu,
We, family of 4 visiting Bali from 2nd to 4th September 2013.We would like to engage your service. Will arrive in DPS airport on 2nd sept at 13.00 hrs (RI 835) and depart on 4th sept at 18.50 hrs. We require half day service on 2nd & 4th sept and full day on 3rd sept.
Please quote us the price. Thank you and awaiting for your reply as soon as possible.

My trip to Bali in July 2013 was amazing simply because of Gede Adi, Putu’s younger brother. Gede has brought my family to very interesting local places. We always felt at home. Thank you so much for the experience. We will definitely visit Bali again 🙂

My wife and I booked 3, 10 hour days with as well as to and from the airport to the Cande Dasa area. Putu was busy with other people so he put us in touch with Gede, another driver. I can’t say enough good things about Gede. He met us at the airport with our name held up so we could identify him. For 3 days we toured around the island to most of the attractions, temples, and scenic places. Since we aren’t the physical type in our 60’s, we mostly did a lot of sightseeing. He took us to ride elephants, sit with the monkey’s, the rice field landscapes, the volcano, and white and black sandy beaches. We finished off our 3 days with a sunset dinner on the beach on the west side of the island. He then met us at our hotel and returned us to the airport. We were thankful to have him as our driver because I don’t think I would have had as good of a time trying to maneuver our car as I watched for traffic and those pesky scooters! Gede was always on time, spoke good conversational English, new the island very well, took pictures for us, and pointed out things that we would have missed if we were on our own. He drove a very nice air-conditioned clean car and was a very safe driver. We would highly recommend Gede from and won’t hesitate booking him again if we should ever return.

i’ve been to wonderful Bali with friends and it wouldn’t be that enjoyable trip without the help and company of our driver/tour guide, Gede and his bli (brother^^). We flew to Bali in three groups, thus they had to fetch us from the airport three times. Kudos to their patience and understanding, esp when they had to wait for us as our arrival was delayed. Maybe it’s in their Bali culture but their extraordinary friendliness and hospitality – carrying our luggage, asking our status, asking if we’re hungry/thirsty, establishing rapport, dealing with hotel reception – made us feel warmly welcomed. Gede is always on time and keeps his appointment, even suggesting how to spend our vacation well. He is also keen on extending his help esp on picture-taking; indeed, he has the hands of a photographer^^.

i strongly commend and recommend Gede’s (and his brunt’s) services to all people planning to visit Bali. you will surely not regret your stay in this island paradise.

i will always treasure those momentous times you made me feel special^^ thanks for tying the yellow cloth for me, for waiting for me (well, i’m always preoccupied and amazed with the beautiful scenery and am engrossed taking pictures eh), for taking photos of me and my friends, for that breakfast, for the cutie bear, and for inviting me back, hahaha….

more blessings!

Excellent Service. Gede is the man! i liked him a lot.
He will help you with everything always with a smile on his face.
Let me say that Gede is very professional, we were late to catch the plane and he made it with no problems, always willing to help and to provide a good service!

five stars service, thank you Gede 🙂

We got Mr. Putu details from my friend who had used his services and we happened to use their services from 24th Dec-28th Dec 2013 when I was in Bali. The drivers who accompanied us were Gede and Mr. Putu small brother. Actually we gave them the entire list of places and activities which we needed to do and Gede had planned our entire itenary and made sure that the trip was full of enjoyment and thrilling moments. I would highly recommend to use their services if you need to have a full feel of bali with good combination of places and activities maybe of any duration. You can contact them on and they are very fast to reply on the email.

Gede and Small Putu- Hope to see you again.

Hi, I’ve received a wonderful services from Nyoman Sudiana on 27th March 2014. Thank you for his friendly and helpful service. We’ll use his service again for our next Bali trip. Also, we would like to recommend to use his excellent services. Can contact him through

My girlfriend and I booked putu’s services last month and the service was exemplary! He truly knew the good places to go around bali. And also had a very friendly demeanor that made us feel comfortable and relaxed. His recommendations to restaurants and attractions should definitely be taken. He came highly recommended by two of my friends, and I could definitely see why now. Will be using his services again whenever I come to bali

On a recent trip to Bali I had the good sense to book YourBaliDriver for the entire week. I asked to be shown all around Bali and shown importantly cultural areas and the itinerary be left in their hands.

I had my new best friend Gede show me everything. I recommend him highly. He is the best driver and most handsome man in Bali. I know that because he told me. He has promised to name his next child, if it is a boy, after me.

Thanks Gede you were great.

Hi, how much do you charge for airport transfer from Seminyak area to airport?
Are u available on 6 May? At around 10+11 am.
Thank you.

Two girls exploring #bali with the help of!

Thank you Putu for the kind arrangement of his staff Komang to fetch us from the airport on 17 May 2014. Due to flight delayed and long queue at the immigration custom of about 1-2hours, we afraid the driver might have leave us due to long waited of our arrival. Thankful that we found the driver at the arrival gate after making phone call to Putu.

Komang had been a great driver who make our 4D3N a safe and fun experience in Bali! Due to first time in bali, I prebooked everything online and everything turned out to be an unpleasant moment, thank you Komang for bringing me to his recommendation place last minute changes such as elephant ride, shopping places and sunset dinner by the beach which is so beautiful. Most important he did not left the two girls all alone, in fact he walked with us around and waited for us to finish our shopping and make sure we are safe. I would highly recommend Komang to 1st timer visitor to bali especially if you are going alone as a girl or in twos.

Do look for Komang and Putu if you need a personal driver to drive you around in bali, bali traffic are heavy and dangerous, have a driver around will be more safe and easy accessible. If you need Komang direct contact you may email me for it and you may book him 1-2weeks before your arrival. He will bring you for local foods, shopping and watersports activities. Everything at his recommendations will be safe!

Thank you Putu once again for your recommendation of Komang, I will see you soon in August! 🙂

My family and I had recently returned from our Bali vacation. Before coming to Bali I had contacted Putu via email and he replied promptly and confirmed that his service will be available during the dates given. I was very relieved to see Nyoman (Putu’s cousin) waiting for us at the arrival terminal although our flight has been delayed for over an hour. We had Nyoman to drive us for the next five days, the car is new, clean and the air conditioning is working. Nyoman is always early to pick us up, and flexible with the plannings (I have my elderly parents with me, so on certain days they are not keen to walk too far), knowledgeable with the places of interests and he even brought us to a local shop, Wulan Busana at my mom’s request. In short, we had had a pleasant time there in Bali, thanks to Putu and Nyoman, you guys are FAB!!!

Wayan was a great driver. Very trustworthy, always early, accommodating and fun. We would tell him what we wanted to see and he would plan the route for us adding things like markets and restaurants in as we drove around site seeing. All around great experience we would suggest this driving service 100%!!! Thanks Wayan 🙂 and Putu family

Thanks to Gede our holiday in bali was filled with expert advice on where and what to do on our holiday I highly recommend Gede and the rest of his team if you need a driver to make your holiday a great experience .

Thank you so much we will be back and will be defently booking yo guys

I am so glad to have engaged a driver from Putu and Family for my family’s bali trip. We are also very thankful that we have Komang as our driver whom was so accommodating to us during the entire five days. He was always punctual and never hesitates to say yes to all of our requests. He also drives safely, so you will definitely be in good hands if you have him as your driver. We would definitely book Komang again if we are coming back to Bali. Thank you so much to Komang and Putu Family. 🙂

I visited Bali in Feb-14 and we availed service from Putu. I must say It was awesome. Very reasonable, flexible and always available. WYAN is awesome guy. He helped us in understanding Balinese culture, Bali.

Actually we gave them the entire list of places and activities which we needed to do and Gede had planned our entire itenary and made sure that the trip was full of enjoyment and thrilling moments. I would highly recommend to use their services if you need to have a full feel of bali with good combination of places and activities maybe of any duration. You can contact them on and they are very fast to reply on the email.

I was in bali for one week from 22nd september 2014….before travelling to bali i had searched for best english speaking driver and came accross to the website of Putu family drivers….the name of my driver was Mr. Komang and was very nice and freindly…he was very informative and good english speaking ….very polite and would take me to best places…Also i wanted Halal food so mr. Komang used to search out for me the best restaurant…really had fun with him..he is also a good photogropher as he took many good pics for me and my wife together…thanks Mr. KOMANG…highly recommended for safety and security also….

Gede was our driver and we liked him a lot! He was very helpful, always smiling. He helped us arrange the trip, thanks to him we learned about many interesting habits of balinese people. As much as I like taking photographs, he was always ready to take a picture of me and my husband, and thanks to him I have a lot of beautiful pictures. All in all, Gede provided an excellent service and I would definitely recommend him as a taxi driver.

My wife and I had Nyoman Sudiana as our driver. He is a very good driver and a kind and helpful person.
Thank you very much. It was great!

Thanks to Putu and his arranged driver, Mr Nyoman for me and my partner for the 4 days wonderful experience in Bali! Good recommendations given by Mr Nyoman to complete the wonderful trip! We really appreciate the help that he arranged with all the phone contact to ensure hotel and spa bookings! Thanks once again and will hire them again if we return to Bali one day!

We visited Bali on August 2014 and our experience with your driving service was magnificent.

We made the reservation from the web being already in Bali and the answer was quick, efficient and polite.

Our driver was Deni and we are totally satisfied with his guide services:

– He made our itinerary according to our demands
– Kindly solved any incident happened to us
– Always maintaned his sympathy and good manners (even the longest days of the tour)
– Provided us a strong security (was our first time in Bali) taking care all times
– Timely and professional

So I reccomend Putu services to anyone, especially by the team worker, prices and good service.

Thank you all for helping make our trip a unique experience!!

Best regards / Borja & Julia

We visited Bali for few days during our travels through Indonesia. We were afraid to ride a scooter so we were looking for another possibility how to reach all the places we wanted to see. We found Putu Sudiana on the internet by chance, so we were very happy when we met our driver Deni who took us everywhere we wanted! We visited 5 places in one day and Dani helped us to create such an itinerary that we had enough time to take photos, see everything, enjoy the places and he just waited for us until we were ready – no arragements in advance….he even took us to the hot springs, wonderful! I strongly recommend Putu Sudianu and his driver Deni – they are reliable and for a good price!

Visited Bali for the first time last Nov 8 2014. From the airport back again for departure, Bim, our driver has been very helpful and greeted us with a warm welcome. All throughout our 4 day stay, he’s been an informative and accommodating tour guide. He is honest and told us what we need to know and does not deceive us into overly priced things like other places do. He kept on telling us historical and cultural background to the places we have been giving it more wow appeal. He was very assisting and hands on. We had a closer look at Bali and enjoyed our stay because of his assistance. We are thankful that we have chosen this tour service. We will definitely recommend Bim and your services. Thank you and see you again.


Hi Putu,

Just wanted to say that I had a great time touring kintamani and tanah lot with Gede!!

I like how professional Gede is and he listens to our requests although it was a last minute change but he didn’t mind taking us to the place where we wanted 🙂

I’m definitely gonna book Gede for my next trip to Bali, thanks Gede for making us feel safe and most importantly enjoyable!

During our recent 3 days visit to Bali we used Putu’s company as our private driver. We had Mr Agung and he was funny, professional, friendly, punctual and best of all he is super fluent in English (he lived in Poland for 4 years).

My partner and I planned most of our trip ourselves – places to eat, massages, places to visit, etc. So we didn’t require a tour guide (so we thought). Agung never tried to sell us anything and always answered our questions very professionally. On our last day we ended up cancelling all our restaurant reservations and asked Agung to take us to where locals eat. It was the BEST DAY spent in Bali so far. I think next time I’m just going to ask Agung to run the show and take us where he would normally go – to play, eat, and drink like a local 🙂 I would put 100% trust in his hands.

I would recommend anyone travelling to Bali to ask for Agung! THANK YOU PUTU & TEAM!! I will be back!!


We came to Bali in november this year and we loved our trip. We knew this agency by a friend who recommended it to us.
We spend few days with Denis which is a very nice person, we learn a lot of things about Bali, its culture and local people with him. Moreover he adapts our tour to our needs.

We recommend this driver company for all people who want to go to Bali and visit a lot of wonderfull places.

Thank you very much ! If we come back to Bali be sure that we will call you !

My name is Margaret. We got Andre as our driver started on Feb 5th 2015 evening.
We all enjoyed Andre as our driver. He is always on time, cheerful, careful driver and take us to the nice and beautiful places timely manner as per our itinerary.
He is really pleasant. We ask for the street food and he took us there. Andre shows us the best of Bali and we really enjoy the places that he shows us around.
I just want to say that I recommend Putu services (Andre) to anyone who visit to Bali

During our recent 15 days visit to Bali we used Putu’s company for the whole trip.
Nyoman was our driver and showed us around the island. Nyoman was very professional and very friendly. On some days we did not have anything planned and Nyoman came up with some great recommendations.

Overall we had an amazing time, and would recommend this company to anyone looking for a private driver service!

Thank you again Nyoman for these good times.

Found out about Putu Sudiana from my brother who visited Bali last year and decided to try his services. This was our first trip to the island and we booked a 3 days private tour with Putu Sudiana. Made was the driver assigned to us, he is very punctual, approachable and friendly. We feel safe and enjoy throughout this private tour, fully trust on Made. We always chat about Bali culture, history, places of interest and recommendation. Thanks to these days’ arrangements, he provides excellent services throughout the private tours. We did enjoy every moments in Bali and highly recommend anyone whoever visit Bali to use Made.

We will definitely come back to Bali with our kids and families and will definitely hire Made again. Hope to see you again.


We booked 2 days private tour with Putu Sudiana. Nyoman was the driver assigned to us.

Nyoman is a very helpful persons and my twin girls like him as well. We feel safe because his driving skill is good and steady. My girls can sleep well in his car when on the way back to hotel. Nyoman brought us to try nice local food and drinks which is quite different from the restaurant at tourist area, the price also much cheaper. This is the best private tour that we had.

Thanks to Nyoman to make our trip enjoyable in Bali.

Kelly & family

On our trip to Bali in June 2015 my family used Nyoman, one of Putu’s drivers. He was just excellent, kind, patient and very reliable. He took some excellent photos for us. He was always on time and we felt safe with him. We would recommend him to everyone. When we go back to Bali we will use the Your Bali Driver service again and ask for Nyoman. In fact we are recommending him to all our friends.

My boyfriend and I had a very great time in Bali, thanks to Putu’s service! We booked for 4 days trip. Our driver was Bim. He os very friendly and speak english fluently. He shared many stories about their tradition in Bali and also hinduism beliefs. He is such a great person and a good friend.
We will surely come back to Bali and contact Putu again.

Just finished a 1.5 day experience with Nyomam Suliharta from the company. It was a great time and be drove us all over the island. The second day was especially great as he patiently drove us all over the island including a lunch venue of our choice. He is humble and very professional and turned down an offer to pay for his lunch. His phone photography skills are quite spectacular and he helped us to take quite a few wonderful photos for our memories of Bali.

If you need a dependable guide, please look for and request for Nyoman.

I was on a 5 day trip to Bali and hired Puta Sudiana for 3 full day sight seeing. Nyoman was our driver and always on time. He is a very humble, professional, safe and good driver. We had a very good time in Bali. I will recommend Puta to anyone coming to Bali.

Recently on 15th Mar 2016 we had an honeymoon trip to Bali. Our local travel in Bali was managed by Putu Team. The Driver name was Eddy and I would say it was one the best thing to happen to us in Bali. What an amazing person he is and showed us the places in detail. Even covered things that was not part of our itinerary.The car was in amazing condition and he was always before time with the usual smile 🙂 His skilled and safe driving was a plus point.He was one the best guide I have had around during my trips. In-fact some of the best couple pics which we have , been taken by Eddy. Really Happy to select this travel operator.Highly recommend and look forward to see them again during our future trip to Bali. Thanks for making our trip an amazing experience.

We booked Putu for 2 full days out of our 5 days stay in Bali. Putu sent Gede Raka to be our driver. To our surprised Gede Raka was very friendly and polite, and extremely punctual(always showed up early most of the time).
He patiently drove us all over the island including the spa venue of our choice. He is humble and very professional. He even helped us to find the best spa with reasonable price for us while we had our lunch in the restaurant (even helped us to get the discount!)
Overall, Bali was a memorable vacation for us and we are glad to meet honest and dependable people like Putu and Raka whom made our vacation even more relaxed and enjoyable!!! We can highly recommend Putu and Gede Raka to anyone visiting Bali and need personal transportation and guides.

We visited from Canada and booked two days with this driving service this week.

Our driver was Gede Raka and he was awesome. He spoke good English and was always ahead of schedule. He was very patient with us, we never felt rushed. He is born and raised on the island so he knows all the safe spots. We left our belongings with him when we visited placed and he kept all our stuff safe. If you book through this service, we recommend you ask for Gede Raka, you will be in great hands.


We would like to thank to Gede Raka for an amazing experience. Everything was perfect for all 10 hours and he was very friendly all this time. We can highly recommend him to everyone.


Just finished our 4 day trip with our Driver Dodi. Dodi helped us decide our itinerary and showed us very good restaurant on our way. He was very friendly and explained the daily life and culture, and give us the curiosity to better understand what we saw in the temples we visited.
We also appreciated his driving skills in difficult roads and patience to take us to the next spot during 4 very full day (including 1 day starting at 2:30 am).

We were visiting Bali from 5/7 to 11/7. On our first day at Bali, Dodi was our driver and he took us to Ubud to visit rice terrace, Batuan temple, and bali swing. He also took us to a restaurant for lunch with incredible view on the rice terrace. Dodi was very funny and caring. On our last day at Bali, Dewata was our driver. He took us to Tanah Lot and Tirta Empul temple. He also took us to an incredible restaurant for lunch and also back to the Airport. Both drivers were very supportive, exceptionally good at English and very punctual. They were being good tour guides with their local knowledge and also helped us out with taking pictures. Over all, our two trips with this company were very pleasant. The cars were nice and new, and the drivers were very helpful and punctual. Highly recommend.

My husband and I booked 4 days in Bali and it was a hassle-free travel. Thanks to our driver Dodi who drove us and toured us around Bali. He knows very well every place. He also introduced us good places to eat and have fun. We also feel safe during our whole stay. Thank you Dodi and for your excellent service. My husband and I would really recommend him to our friends if they’re going to Bali.

We booked a driver here for our last day in Bali and didn’t regret it all. Our driver, Margon, was always there ahead of time and answered all the questions we had and gave great recommendations. What we really appreciated was that we could have a real conversation with him, instead of just silence that we had with previous drivers. It made everything less awkward and the information we received on the Indonesian culture was also a great bonus.
We had no problem at all with trusting him with our luggage.

So I can really recommend booking a driver via this website, especially since they reply super fast to any enquiries you might have.

Recently had a few days in Bali from Australia and was met by Komang Yus at the airport for a transport to our hotel in Seminyak. My wife and I arrived late at night and it wasn’t great to know that we had a safe, prearranged transportation after the flight. Komang spoke good English so it was easy to converse with him. He was friendly and respected our privacy while my wife and I chatted. He drove us around a couple other days when we stayed in Ubud and was even flexible with our pick up times. He was safe and we felt comfortable with him when we left our suitcases in the vehicle. Thank you Komang Yus. -Bre & Jomar

My wife and I came to Bali for honeymoon. After spent a few days ini Ubud, we had to move to Kuta. Our previous driver has been canceled. Fortunately we found out Putu’s company. Nyoman was our driver and showed us around the city. Nyoman was very professional and very friendly. Actually we did not have anything planned and Nyoman came up with some great recommendations.
Overall we had an amazing time, and would recommend this company to anyone looking for a private driver service!

Recently we had engagement event for my daughter. Luckily we had Komang Yus as our driver. He was well above his professionalism and very courteous gentleman. He went out of his way to show us more than we expected about his country. Without ANY reservation I will highly recommend him for any tourism related needs. He was very informative, flexible and entertaining human being.
We were in group of 8 people and each of us enjoyed his company.
It was very lucky interaction with him.
Thank you so much for ALL your help.

I was I Bali for 9 days in April and had the best experience with our driver Gede Raka. He was amazing to deal with always in time and genuinely kind hearted. Once again think you Gede for the great holiday. Will be back for sure.

We had the best experience in Bali with driver Gede Raka. He is very atencious, nice and educate. We are so thankful for these days!!

We had a fantastic all day tour with Gede who took us around the sights of East / Central Bali. We started with a Batik factory, then onto waterfalls and finally some amazing temples and the region of Ubud. This was truly an amazing experience and we had a blast the entire day, despite the Bali traffic.

We had the most magical trip exploring the serene temples of Bali with Gede. He picked us up from our hotel at 4am and drove us through the mountains to get us to the first temple before sunrise. The experience was phenomenal. We then took a spiritual route and explored Lempuyang, Tirta Gangga and Besakih and managed to catch few glimpses and photos of the giant Mount Batur. Gede’s driving was very safe, he made us feel comfortable, shared stories of the significance of each temple for the Balinese people. He ran ahead and stood in line for us at spots, brought sarongs in advance, and took the many pictures that will form our memories of Bali. Gede is a wonderful guide and a kind soul – thank you for this once in a lifetime experience! Communication over (Hidden by Airbnb) and punctuality was spot on as well. We had an excellent time with Gede.

We visited from Bali for about 2 weeks and our driver was Gede Raka. We found Gede to be extremely polite, professional and very punctual. Nothing was ever a problem for Gede, he would go out of his way to accommodate our requests which at times were last minute as well. We had a few kids in our group as well and he kept them entertained and would recommend places that might of interest to them. Thank you Gede for making our trip a memorable one and look forward to using your services in the near future. Highly recommend Gede Raka to anyone visiiting Bali who is in need of personal transportation and/or guides.
