Reg PortraitWelcome!

I am Made Artana, but most people call me Reg.

I was born in Bali and have spent my adult years driving tourists around Bali.

I have a Toyota Innova which seats six or maybe seven passengers, good air conditioning and very comfortable.

I have recently bought a new Isuzu Elf minibus which seats 12 people comfortably without luggage, and 9 people with luggage.

Come with me as I drive you around Bali. I can take you to all the wonderful places, the beaches, the mountains and countryside. I can take you to temples, villages and show you Bali arts and crafts.

I speak English and will make sure you are looked after.

My vehicles are fully air conditioned and are very comfortable. Fares can be negotiated for any destination or by the half or full day.

The advantage in using me as your driver is that I was born here and know all the good spots. I can help you with good prices and good food. Just tell me what you want and I will arrange the best possible tours.

I just took an Aussie to Benoa Harbour and showed him all the Balinese fishing boats unloading their day’s catch for the market. He had never seen anything like it. Then we drove along the wharves and saw the freighters. A mother ship was unloading huge tuna with a crane into a freezer truck.

Another Aussie tourist likes me to take him to the surfing breaks and sometimes to the fabulous diving spots up north. Whatever you like I can take you there.

A great family trip is to Candidasa on the east coast which is developing as a new favourite hide away and has a beautiful beach. You can take a picnic lunch or go to one of the world-class restaurants. Follow that with a lazy time on the beach and then a scenic tour back home.

Because I am your local man, I can organise special deals for you like renting a motor bike or getting a cooked suckling pig delivered to your Villa.

And if you want other adventures like rafting, or cruises I am an agent for the best.

"We met Reg a couple of years ago and as frequent visitors to Bali, Indonesia would have no one else but Reg take us around on tours. As well as general touring, Reg acts 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".
