    I booked a day transfer from Ubud to Lovina with Yvonne for four people and was not dissapointed! Our driver Cenning was fantastic, so friendly, funny and helpful (with the perfect dose of crazy ;) ) - we enjoyed our time with him so much and we are very grateful for the time we spent with him! Yvonne was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process, checking in and ensuring we are okay and everything was covered. After the tour, we visited Cennings home to cook with his wonderful wife Dewi. She taught us how to authentically cook many dishes (which were delicious)! We took away the recipes with us, extra food and great memories. Thank you Dewi!! We can't recomend Bali Surya Tours enough and really reccomend making time to cook with Dewi during your trip :) Thank you and best wishes and hope to see you again in the future :)

    We did the cooking class as a couple and it was amazing. Ibu Dewi is a really good cook and we learned how to prepare the best balinese dishes with her. The food was really tasty and in the end she also gave us a balinese spice mix to bring home. Thanks a lot for this great experience!
