We spent a awesome week in Amed and it was thanks to the best guide Made. He organized three trips for us, which were excellent. Made added some nice places to places, which we wanted to see, so we saw more than we expected. One trip was with overnight, he arranged a guide for trekking on mountain Batur, where we saw beautiful sunrise. He was waiting for us down and he took us to Lovina. Nothing was a problem for Made. We are really grateful for his help and kidness.
We were in Amed for 6 days. It was very nice time there, because we had our driver Made. He managed for us three trips and we enjoyed it. Everything was perfect,he stopped where we wanted and we had good price for it. Two trips we had around Amed and third overnight trip was to the lake Batur with trekking. Made arranged the guide for climbing to the mountain Batur for us. Other day he took us to Lovina. In Amed we rent from him motorbikes and masks for snorcheling. Nothing was a problem and our driver was very nice. We visited his restaurant too and had very tasty dinner.
We met Pauli and his family when eating at their Warung (which is great food) so friendly and helpful wanting to make sure you enjoy yourself and get the maximum benefit of the beautiful area of Amed.
They are a local family business who have a quality vechile and an amazing amount of local knowledge that you can only get growing up in an area.
They speak very good English and are extremely helpful.
We will definitely be using them on our next trip to Bali which will involve a stay in Amed and a few days of private transport to all the hidden gems of the Amed area.
We organised a taxi service with Made and his cousin after eating at their family restaurant (which has amazing food). Anyway I’ll review Made. We wanted to visit the Mt Agung Sunrise Point in Bukit Cinta which is not an overly well known place, so we were a bit worried about finding a taxi driver to explain the location to. Fortunately Made had heard of the place and was more than willing to drive us there for sunrise! Trip was smooth, Made’s English is perfect and we learnt a lot about Balinese culture and locations. He’s probably been our favourite taxi driver ever! Thanks so much!
We found out about the transport service after dinner in his father’s warung Sabar. We wanted to go the next day after diving. In the morning, I remembered you shouldn’t drive into the mountains immediately after diving, which is exactly what we wanted to do. So I called him to ask if we could postpone the trip until the next day, and sure it was no problem.
We had an very enjoyable trip. Made speaks excellent English and can provide you lots of information about the region.
We also used his service to bring us from Amed to Sanur. Very reliable and safe driver for a fair price.
