Top 10 Reason Why You Should Use Thebalidriver.com

Bali is small and beautiful island with tropical climate. Its beauty has attracting more than 5 million tourists every year both foreign and domestic. That’s why, Bali now is crowded with tourists. Bali road filled with tourist transportation. If you’re new in Bali, driving in Bali can be tricky. Long hours traffic jam is stressful. Small and narrow roads can lead you to the wrong direction.

Thebalidriver.com founded to help you enjoy the secret of the island. This is top 10 reason, why you should join The Bali Driver to manage your trip in Bali.

Flexibility: When traveling around Bali, we provide tailor-made itineraries that fully meet your needs, budget and time frame. You are in the driving seat; you can rest when you feel hot or tired, you can linger longer in some places or take an unplanned diversion if you spot something of interest. Want to start out early or come back late at night so that you travel during the coolest part of the day? Private tours allow you to travel Bali on your own terms; they give you the ability to have the final word.

Ease of Transportation: Our private tours in Bali are all run by qualified tourist guides/drivers who drive you from your base to each location. Our local knowledge of traffic hotspots, shortcuts and parking lots ensures you spend the absolute minimum time travelling and use your holiday time to your best advantage. Renting a car and driving alongside impatient Bali drivers on unfamiliar roads is simply a stress and expense you can do without. In addition to getting you from A-B, our driver guides point out places of interest along the way and spend time getting to know you and discussing all aspects of Bali.

Getting the Most Out of Each Tour: Group tours can sometimes be frustrating; it may be difficult to hear your tour guide amid the noise of a large group, you may be at the back of the group and unable to see the specific things your guide is pointing out or you may find the pace too fast or too slow. Private tours inBali go at your speed, put you in the front row at all times and give you the time and space to ask as many questions as you like.

Visiting Out of the Ordinary Sites:  You can give us your specific requests before a tour or tell us your areas of interest so that we can make suggestions. For a tour that is totally different and veers right off the tourist trail, you need a knowledgeable tour guide. Bali full of secret locations, as yet undiscovered by mainstream tours; make the most of our qualified guides’ local knowledge and let us show you the hidden side of Bali.

Making the Most of Your Time: Bali Guide understands that your holiday time is precious to you. We know that travelling alone can mean longer, indirect journeys, that groups can be delayed by latecomers and that those with only a little time to travel Bali can become frustrated with the amount of ‘dead time’ during their days. With private tours there is no wasted time – we travel at a time and speed to suit you, we collect you and return you direct to your hotel and in doing so we maximize your sightseeing time, ensuring that you stay calm, relaxed and focused on fun not frustration!

Value for Money: On the face of it private tours don’t seem like an option for those planning to travel to Bali on a budget. However, if you factor in the total transportation costs of your family or traveling companions then you will soon find that taking a private tour in Bali may actually prove to be better value than you thought. In addition, the fact that you can see more on a private tour could negate the need for additional trips you may have planned. Our satisfied customers tell us that the friendly atmosphere and personal touch on our private tours is worth every shekel. Read their testimonials.

Friendliness: On Thebalidriver.com tour you will have the benefit of a friendly tour guide who genuinely cares about giving you the best vacation in Bali possible. You will grow close to him throughout the day, as he shares with you his insights into the places you visit as well as day to day life in Bali. By the end of the trip, having shared all your adventures and experiences, he will be like one of the family and is sure to feature in many of your vacation photos!

 Shopping and Eating Out: Most tourists like to purchase gifts for friends and family or buy special items to remind them of their Bali vacation. Our tour guides can help you avoid the cheap, tourist shops selling tacky, badly made goods and take you to shops and markets selling authentic local goods at reasonable prices. When you have shopped till you drop we can recommend local eateries; we can advise you on the diverse range of traditional and ethnic restaurants available throughout Bali, direct you to little known family run bistros and, for those who keep kosher, we can locate restaurants with your desired halal certificate for example.

Meeting Balinese: Private tours give you the opportunity to meet local Balinese. Our tour guides understand that your tour of Bali is not just about sightseeing but also aims to improve your awareness of Balinese culture. Throughout your tour you have the opportunity to chat with our guides, learning not just about the sights but about daily life in Bali. Return home with a true understanding of Bali; having connected with its history and gained a true feel for the delights and dilemmas of living in Bali today.

 Traveling with Kids: By far the easiest and most hassle-free way to tour Bali with children is on a private tour. Children have their own place which rarely fits into the strict itineraries of group tours. Our tour guides have a special way with kids; understanding their impatience for long journeys or detailed commentaries; they know how to keep your kids amused and content. We can also put together child-centered itineraries which put your kids at the heart of each tour.

Bali Tour Guide, How Much Does It Cost?`

I have got hundred questions, “How much is the licensed Bali tour guide cost per day?” It sounds standard question from the visitor. For travelers, to visit a new place , a guide is not just a person who tell you the story behind every places you visit. A good guide is also your friend during the trip. A guide can act as a local translator or a wise negotiator while want to bargain something you want to buy.

There are thousand licensed guides in Bali. They speak your language fluently. Most of them speak axcellent English. For a day trip, an English speaking guide would cost about IDR 300,000 to 500,000. Any other specific languages like Japanese, France, Italian or Korean will cost you about 500,000 to 1,000,000/day.

At Thebalidriver.com, we are team English speaking driver. None of us are licensed guide. But we speak your language. We can act as your friend, your translator or your negotiator. But, in some places, we can not accompany you because we have limited authorization (we are waiting at the parking area).

And we never charge you extra fees for our service. Your payment covering: a car, English speaking driver, gasoline, tax, parking fees, and meal for the driver.

The Value of Local Knowledge

If you’re visiting a tourist hotspot for the first time and you feel as though every single driver who approaches you to offer you a ride around town simply wants to drive you to the most expensive places possible to make a load of money (because they’re clearly in cahoots with local business owners), then you’re not alone This is common, because there are some drivers out there who are like that.

However, for every driver like this, there’s another driver, like the ones who frequent this site, who love where they live and want to see the real businesses – the family-run hotels and restaurants, the honestly-priced boating trips – thrive, because they go there themselves and want to see them still there in ten years.

So whether you just want a great hotel where you can crash for the night, relax with some Foxy Bingo and not worry about the bill in the morning, or you’re keen on getting a quick tour of the local area before heading out on foot to explore, a local driver who knows his stuff will really help you out.

It’s certainly better than going it alone – some foreign places can be really confusing, and if you don’t know the language very well (if at all), it can be a nightmare, as taxi drivers at airports are slightly more likely to speak your language and be able to guide you to the right places.

So next time you’re in a new area, phone ahead to your your hotel (if you can) and ask them what local taxi firms they recommend, provided you’re staying with at well-reviewed hotel wherein the reviewers state that they’re not just in it for the cash. Alternatively, get in touch with the local community and ask them directly via the web. Good luck on your travels.
