We can confirm that Jero is a good driver and guide. He looked after us very well when we visited Bali last month, and showed us many interesting spots 'off the beaten track'.

We have been to Bali four times and having previously driven our own car last year we chose for the first time to use a driver ... what luxury! I can really recomend this as a much more relaxing alternative,and it was no more expensive!
I did not know this driver but he sounds lovely and if we manage to get to Bali again in the near future would certainly get in touch wiht him.

I visit Bali every year, and Ariawan is always my choice as my driver around Bali. He is polite and very helpful, and he knows all the short cuts. Or, if you have time, he knows the long scenic routes as well. As a person, Ariawan is fun. C. Choy, Oregon USA

My wife and I have used Ari (Jero) as our driver on our last two visits to Bali, and can not recommend him highly enough. His English is good,he understands the wishes of those of us that want to avoid the main tourist traps, is a very careful driver and a great ambassador for his country. If you want to gain a better understanding of this lovely country, Ari and his family will meet your needs. Mike. New Zealand

My wife and I visit Bali every year to stay in Ubud, and always use Ari (Jero) as our driver. He and his family have become good friends, and we highly recommend him as a guide. If you want to really experience Bali, in a way that is respectful to these wonderful people and their fantastic culture, email Ari and make a booking. Mike. New Zealand

"Thanks to Ari(Jero) for the wonderful service and his wide knowledge of
bali's tradition and culture,
and our stay in Bali was a breeze and the good moments well
remembered.We enjoyed his
hospitality and he was patient and polite throughout our busy shopping
trips.Being a enthusiastic
painter himself, he was was of great help to advise us on the
authenticity of the Bali paintings
and get it for good price as well.With many more trips to come in Bali,
without a doubt
the cool-looking Ari WILL BE ALWAYS OUR #1 CHOICE to be our friend and
guide.
Yo buddy,thanks for the intro of the local Bintang beer, and i got to
admit that it taste much
better than Heineken:) "

I also highly recommend the services Ari is offering. During my last two stays in Ubud (May and August 2008) he was my and my family's driver. He is a cautious driver, 100% reliable, his car is very comfortable and we laughed a lot together. You will not regret having choosen him as your driver!
Thank you Ari and see you again!

I feel I was lucky to meet Ari and use him as my driver/guide during my 10 day stay in Ubud during March 2009. He was knowledgeable,friendly, courteous, timely,helpful and a cautious driver in a comfortable car. His English was fine and his commentary on Balinese culture and sights was insightful and interesting. I recommend him as a guide without reservation.

My husband and I were very fortunate to have Ari show us around the Ubud area in March 2010. We made the most of our short time in Bali due to his excellent work. He made sure he understood the type of things we wanted to see and do, and recommended an itinerary that was informative and captivating. He has a strong knowledge of historical background and gave us insights into the culture and customs of Bali. He is reliable, speaks great English and has a sense of humor. His car is comfortable, well cared for and Ari is an excellent driver. I recommend him highly.

I hope all is well with you and your family and hope to have an opportunity to come back to Bali.

Regards,
Tanya

My husband and I were extremely lucky to have Ari as our driver on a recent trip to Bali.
This was our first trip to Bali and we could not have been in better hands. Ari is the friendliest, most caring, professional person you could wish for.
Nothing was too much trouble and he often went above and beyond to make our trip extra special.
Ari's passion and knowledge of Bali is exceptional and we learnt much more than we could have imagined.
We can't wait to return to Bali and look forward to seeing our friend Ari.
Thanks Ari - see you soon.

Ariawan made our trip to Bali an unforgettable one!!! He is a great driver and his knowledge about Bali and it's culture is immense. He knew every backroad of the island so we saw the most amazing places that "regular" tourists will never see. He is such a friendly and nice guy, he explained a lot about the culture of the Balinese. I am a photographer and could not have been more happy than with Ari as our driver!!! If you go to Bali, send an email to Ariawan and hire him as your driver!

My daughter and I had Ari take us on the Ancient Temple tour during our recent stay in Ubud. The day started off with pouring rain but Ari ensured we were well taken care of and his concern for us was genuine. The sun came out not long after and our day was filled with amazing sites and a wealth of information provided by Ari. This was the perfect way to spend the day and see the beauty of Bali.

Dear Mr.Ariawan,
Thank you, you gave us a good day in Bali.
Your driving and tour guide is so good, your knowledge about Bali- culture, religion, economic, landscape... is immense, so we also know much about Bali when taken by you.
Thank for your enthusiasm and your care.

Before traveling to Bali, we contacted Ari with a list of places we wanted to visit in 3 days, and he replied with a day by day itinerary customized to our request.
On our second day of travel with Ari, we requested to be dropped of at Bali Safari and Marine Park for the night safari. Ari helped us get our admission tickets and made arrangements for us to ensure we would have a driver take us home afterwards. He even offered to stay and wait for us.
We also requested an additional day with Ari and he made arrangements to be available for us. We could not have had a better driver and guide for our adventures. Ari taught us so much about his culture, and he truly has a passion for teaching others about Balinese life.
Even with all the crazy Bali traffic, we never felt unsafe on the road, and Ari knows every back road so that you get to see everything. Ari was very accommodating with our preferences and asked for our input on the types of food we wanted to try for lunch each day and found us restaurants that were both excellent and not overrun by tourists.
The four days we spent with Ari were amazing, unforgettable, and will always be cherished. I would be glad to add Ari to my list of people that I would be proud to call a friend and family.
