My friend Amy says:
"Mr Chillout is true to his name. I flew to Bali from London for a wonderful week’s holiday. He made me feel so relaxed as soon as I met him and got to know his easy-going style. I especially wanted to visit some village markets to collect a few ornaments for home. We went to Celuk village where we found some gold and silver smiths and then to Mas and Kemenuh to see woodcarving. I bought some excellent pieces with Reg’s help talking Balinese to the locals. I definitely recommend Mr Chillout, he is kind and polite and very helpful with local knowledge.”
Another friend, Christine from Perth Western Australia likes to practice her Bahasa Indonesian language with Reg:
"Reg speaks English, Indonesian and of course Balinese. He is so friendly and happy that I really enjoy his company as a friend and guide."
Lynne from Australia says:
“We used "Mr Chillout" as a guide during our stay in Bali and can say it was the highlight of our holiday in Bali. Reg drove us to the (north?) side of the island (picking us up at 4.00am) and we spent a fabulous day out with the dolphins, snorkelling and visiting the hot springs and a beautiful waterfall. Reg kept us (two adults and four children) all entertained especially the children who even now talk about our experience with him. We have recommended Reg to others and they have all reported that they had a fabulous time with him as driver/guide. We can't wait to get back to Bali and see Reg again.”
Mick and Michelle from Australia says:
"We met Reg a couple of years ago and as frequent visitors to Bali would have no one else but Reg take us around. As well as general touring, Reg supports us in our business venture. He serves as more than just a guide for us, acting as our cultural conduit into the Balinese way of life. Reg has endless energy and a great sense of fun, always being able to help us out, no matter what our request or needs. He literally knows every nook and cranny on his island of Bali. His caring and trustworthy nature make him the ideal choice for a tour guide. A definite highlight for us with any trip to Bali is just catching up with Reg for a laugh and to "chill out". Till the next time mate."
Jen from Australia says:
"I took my two sons aged 16 and 11 to Bali for a needed break. Reg took us on a half day tour to find the cheapest bargains I have ever had on my 15 trips to Bali. The boys and I had a great spend up. We organized a full day tour with him to Lovina for some snorkeling and stopped at the most amazing places on the way such as the Waterfall, Balinese villages that are not tourist ridden, the rice fields, temples, monkeys in the mountains and so much more. He is very flexible and was happy to stop randomly when we saw something of interest on the way. Reg was like the big brother my kids have never had. I could sit back and relax while he showed my boys the time of their life. He is friendly, funny, related to kids so well and knows Bali inside out. My kids think he is a legend and are harassing me for another trip to Bali next year with Reg obviously on the agenda."
Enrico from Sydney New South Wales says:
"I would like to thank Reg for the absolutely marvellous time we had with him over the 3 days when we used his services last week. The bus was immaculate and Reg couldn't have been more helpful. Our group of 12 travelled comfortably and Reg was extremely knowledgeable and informative during our touring. I would have no hesitation in recommending Reg to any friends travelling into Bali. We will definitely be returning to Bali and will use Reg again."
The Hayes family, Perth Western Australia says:
We met Reg a few years ago. We book him each time, as not only is he good fun and entertaining, he is also a genuine guy. We don't feel he is trying to rip us off. He will endeavour to get us the best deal, and we feel that with him, we get to experience the real essence of Bali and not always the commercialised attractions. My boys always ask to see Reg, as he has become more like a friend than just a tour guide. Of course, his 12 seater air-conditioned bus is always a pleasure.
Rhonda from Australia says:
"Reg was an absolutely wonderful guide while I was in Bali in early November 2010. His smile good humour and relaxed and made my time with him thoroughly enjoyable. He took me to a great money dealer and DVD shop where I was given good service.
He took me wherever I wanted to go which was absolutely wonderful as I do not know my way well around Bali and Reg knew all the best ways of getting to each location.
When in the DVD shop he acquired a CD which some old songs on it (including Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around the Old Oak Tree) which we sang and moved to while driving around. Being around Reg was great fun and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a relaxing guide to help them around Bali."
