Great day out, although Tanah Lot is so very busy so we weary of that! But that's no reflection on the professionalism of the guides on the day

When he arrived at the temple to meet us, he didn't even know our itinerary. He asked one of us to pull up our complete itinerary for him to see. We went through the entire temple in about 20 minutes. During the entire time, he would periodically be chatting on his cellphone. He dropped us off at the monkey temple and stayed on the car as we went through the site. He discouraged us from going to Tanah Lot because the sunset would've not been very visible due to the cloudy weather. We went anyway but he barely gave us a tour. He just walked us through the site and answered a couple questions we had. Never did he actively try to expound knowledge upon us. He seemed lazy and unwilling to work.

Very long tour because of terrible traffic jams in Bali. The tour and travel took nearly 6 hours. The monkey forest was not really very worthwhile. The Messi Temple was worthwhile, but the Tanah Lot was spectacular. Unfortunately for us we got there in a wind and rain storm.

If you like animals this was a fun tour. Bought bananas to feed the monkeys. Monkeys throughout the forest vying to be fed a banana. Great opportunities for photo taking. Temple was interesting.

We were picked up from the hotel then stopped first at a traditional Balinese farm for the fried tapioca and sweet potato. It was an opportunity to go to the toilet on what ended up being a lot of time spent on the road in a minibus. It was time that probably could have been better spent on the rest of the tour though as we must have been there for at least forty-five minutes. Mengwi Temple was beautiful but quite rushed. You had to chose between keeping up with the tour guide to hear what he had to say or taking photos, we opted for the latter. At the monkey forest and Tanah Lot you are left to your own devices to wander around and get a lot more time to explore. There are two monkey forests in the area and from what we heard the one we went to wasn't the better of the two. The monkeys are equally cute and mischievous. The swarms of flies were annoying. Bring lots of insect repellant. At the end of the tour there was a row of stalls and shops where it got awkward, with some particularly pushy hawkers. We got to watch the sun going down at Tanah Lot and it was beautiful, but be prepared for the fact that this is probably the most popular tourist spot on Bali and you will have to fight your way through huge crowds. Doing a guided tour in that kind of environment is impossible, so allowing people to do their own thing is the best approach. The tour guide spent most of the time talking on the minibus about local religious beliefs. I don't know if this was preplanned or because an American woman asked him a number of questions about it, but I would've liked to have learnt a bit more about the places we were visiting. Overall the trip was very light on historical detail. The driver and guide were friendly, but if you are picked up first expect to be dropped off last. By Western standards this was a cheap trip, but by Balinese it was overpriced. Make sure your bring plenty of your own water and small denomination notes to pay to use toilets. We managed to book the tour very last minute, so it was great in that regard, but if you have the time to find something a bit more personalised I'd recommend doing so.

Our guide was lovely, informative, and patient. This monkey forest we found out has the monkey temple as well which is kinda cool. It also has the only area of monkeys that are calm. A good one for kids. I understand the monkeys in the other monkey forests can be dangerous and mean (FYI)!!
