Returns to original departure point
Take a deep dive into the artistic traditions of Bali as you explore the artisans and markets around the city of Ubud. Admire some of this island’s most impressive artistic traditions as you explore its diverse output of woodcarvings, paintings, architecture and more.

Begin your artistic trip in Ubud with pickup from your hotel. Continue your trip with your guide, driving towards Central Ubud. Take a break on the way to admire some traditional Balinese houses, a unique architectural style that has inspired countless designers around the world.

Reach the Puri Lukisan Museum, exploring its various exhibits on famous Balinese sculptors and painters. You’ll also learn about Bali’s wayang-style painting technique, a method that constituted the majority of the island’s output prior to the 1920s. Check out works by contemporary Ubud artists, and then see examples of traditional artistic styles such as Batuan (typical of Brahman artists) and Sanur, which uses a highly-stylized technique to depict various animals. 

Head next to Puri Saren Ubud, the former residence of Bali’s last monarch. Explore the intricate architectural style of the compound’s traditional buildings, then proceed across the street to Ubud’s art market, to find a few bargains on a wide range of Balinese paintings and wood carvings, spanning both new and old styles. 

Leave central Ubud behind as you continue to Bali’s lush countryside, where you’ll make a stop in Petulu Village. Gaze at the village’s community of gorgeous white herons (kokokan) who have called the area home since 1965.  You’ll see literally thousands of the birds nesting in the trees during the months of October through March, when their chicks hatch. Then make a return trip back to Ubud for drop-off at your hotel.

Was not very happy with this tour...
Robyn S

Was not very happy with this tour. We were all crammed into a mini bus which was not easy for the younger adults very difficult for the two older ladies. We were taken to places that were ok but no commentary or anything. The driver and guide were nice but one just sat and didn't say much and the other just drove. The batik place and wood place were good. The silver place was a mixed bag of heat and very pushy sales people. Would not do it again and would not recommend this tour.

I wouldn't recommend this tour, it's not a good value for the price. One would be better off getting a driver from the hotel who will take you to the most interesting parts, instead of so called galleries where you are expected to make a purchase.

I highly recommend this tour. The temple is beautiful. Most of all this tour explains the history and culture of Bali. The paintings of the local Ubod artists took our breath away. We did not go home without bringing 4 pieces paintings. Weda our guide is a very good guide. He is knowledgeable of the messages he wants to impart. Most of all he has good manners and right conduct.

The trip to Ubud, Bali, is a must when visiting this island. The temple and the royal palace are already the approach of a value-hour. I was the only participant of this trip and very much regret that the guide wanted to fulfill my personal wishes, although this does not make detours would have. He wanted me necessarily result in a museum and to the Reistreassen I had but seen it all. Positive was during this tour that the driver was on time, what with Tour East Indonesia is not always the case. Unpleasant, however, was that the driver had constant bouts of coughing and I asked if he was healthy. He answered my question by saying that he had drunk too much the night before. For me it was uncomfortable, so I broke off the trip. Too Bad. This guide, spoke of all the worst-to-understand English.In summary, the place is amazing, the sights amazing the performing mediocre

The tour was pretty basic. It was actually boring and we could go to the uBud palace and puri lukisan museum by ourselves. Our guide explained some things but it was not enough to make it interesting and worthwhile.
