Balinese Greeting -



My name is Nyoman...

Balinese Greeting -



My name is Nyoman Astawa but you may call me Astawa. I've always lived in beautiful Bali and have been a professional English Tour guide for the last 5 years. I have had the chance to meet clients from all over the world - mainly from: Australia, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, USA, China and UK. I am always interested in meeting people from new countries and to learn about their culture while showing them the Balinese one.

My tours cover different types of activities, I will customize every tour based on the preferences of each group/couple or family. Some experiences I've organized before include: Cultural, Food Discovery, Outdoor Activities, Sightseeing, Spiritual, Music and Dance and finally Shopping. We can mix and match from all the above based on your duration of stay in Bali and your plans.

I can host groups of up to 7 people (in my 8-seater car) or can accommodate bigger groups in multiple cars with my trusted team. To help you enjoy exploring Bali the following services are complimentary to all my clients: Cold Bottled Water, Refreshing Towels, Wifi Hotspot, Umbrellas and Sarongs for visiting the temples. All of my tours are well-priced and I am happy to provide you with more details by email.

Please check the reviews of my previous clients below and if you are interested in hiring my services, send me an email with additional details and I will reply to you at the earliest possibility.

Looking forward to meeting you in Bali soon :-)

Had a really positive experience with the Ubud + Mt Batur tour this week. They happily rescheduled since I got really sick on the day we initially planned to go. The driver was on time, extremely friendly and really informative throughout the tour. If I had more days in Ubud I'd book a couple more trips with these guys. Just... More

I had picked UFD for a day tour of Ubud based on the positive reviews on trip advisor and to be honest they surpassed my expectations. Jun (our driver/guide) picked us up from our hotel perfectly on time in a spacious and clean car, and basically provided us with all the options available and allowed us to customize our tour...

Booked a cab from Ubud friendly driver and was extremely pleased with the level of professionalism. Driver was on time, took us to where we wanted to go, gave enough time (as long as we wished) for seeing the attractions. Driver was knowledgable in local areas and made sure that he accompanies us to guide us. Even cared to bring... More

Booked a tour with Astawa a day prior with no hassles at all. Communication was prompt and easy over whatsapp! The following morning we were greeted by Gungtra who went over what we wanted to see and suggested other locations we could visit along the way/on the way back to our accomodation. He was super polite and kind, even offering... More

Kadek arrived early and was very friendly. We literally saw everywhere we wanted to, the stop offs on the list we wasn't so keen on we took out and... More

I contacted, Ubud Friendly Driver, the night I arrived in Ubud. They emailed me right back and was able to arrange a driver for the next morning. Our driver, Ketut, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend having this company, be your driver.
