Made drove me for 2 days. I felt safe and cared for. I liked his proactive initiative. He seemed really interested what I like and suggested what to see and where to go. He also took care of all the arranging details. He even suggested on his own and drove me to Ketut ( I did not know that is a real person, I thought is it just a character in the movies) from the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Made is more than a driver, he is your friend on Bali.

Just got back from Bali and had Made for a tour guide for 3 days. He was a really fantastic person to have around. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the area, but he was also very charming, witty, and helpful with shopping. My wife and I couldn't have done it without him! When we go back to Bali, he will be our driver. We consider Made a good friend. We highly recommend him to anyone needing a driver in Bali.

We were lucky enough to be driven by Made for a day while my family and I holiday\'d in Bali. Our hotel, the Anantara in Seminyak, arranged him for us on our day trip to Ubud. Unfortunately he was unavailable for the rest of our stay. In just that one day we were all so happy with Made\'s service that I was only too excited to recommend him to friends. Kind, patient and trustworthy are just some of the traits that Made has. Thank you so much Made and we hope to see you again!

One other thing I forgot to mention that made our trip so special – our driver, Made Sudarsana! He was recommended to us by two different friends here in San Diego who had used his services, and he was an essential part of the success of our trip. We used his services for 9 days to drive us all over the island, and he not only was a wonderful driver and guide with an immaculate and comfortable vehicle, but a terrific companion. I would recommend him highly to your clients:

We had a lovely day with Made on his Kintamani Volcano tour. We substituted a look
at Sanur Beach for the Monkey Forrest, but otherwise we let Made take the lead in
showing us Bali. We saw a Barong Dance (like an opera), a Batik workshop, an
excellent silver jewellery demonstration, the Holy spring temple (amazing), another
local temple where many Balinese families were making offerings and receiving a
blessing from the waters of the Holy spring (a very special experience), rice
terraces and many rice fields, the spectacular view of the giant caldera and lake of
Kintamani, and a spice/coffee/cocoa plantation with free samples.
Made at all times drove safely and was very polite and courteous. He has a new, very
comfortable vehicle. He has a great knowledge of Bali and its customs and culture
and is very flexible with his itinerary, as he wants his customers to really enjoy
their time in Bali.
We highly recommend him!

---LOOK NO FURTHER--- Just like most of us ...you are wondering how to choose the right car/driver/guide for your unforgettable Bali adventure... because it really can make ...the difference, in how joyfully you will experience this magical country. My name is Dr. Kevin Michael and I am personally recommending to you: Made Sudarsana... who I know will easily exceed all of your expectations and hopes. He was always our choice when he was driving for the Four Seasons in Sayan... and will continue to always be our choice. Made is an exceptional person with simply a great heart, as well as an extensive knowledge of how to make things easy and enjoyable, and if you have not learned to call him friend (after you wisely choose his services) it won't be because Made didn't give it his all!
So... have a great time ...and make a great choice. Namaste... Kevin

20th July 2009. Good Day Made! We had spent 4d3n in bali, from Seminyak to NusaDua to Jimbaran beach to volcano sightseeing to Ubud to Kuta.
We engaged two drivers during our stay, and Made certainly was more impressive from my point of view.
Soft spoken, courteous, accomodating n definitely very patient! As tourists, we usually demand flexibility and Made definitely made it easy for us.
Being fickle minded, even when we requested him to change the dvds during the journey, he was all smiles. From Techno to BackStreet Boys! Yeah!
Oh, Made\'s car is equipped with a dvd player with very impressive sound system to keep you entertained.
We were truly impressed by Made\'s level of service. So folks, I strongly recommend that you engaged Made for your stay in Bali, even for a day to try out.
He is worth every cent you pay. Cheers n Enjoy!

My experience in Bali is one of the most memorable vacations ever! And I attribute a large part of that to the wonderful experience Made made for us in taking us around the beautiful island, explaining the local culture, and showing us things that we would not have been able to see on our own with just a tour book. He is so considerate and super-friendly. Put your mind at ease and leave it to Made to take care of all your transportation needs in Bali!

My husband, two small children, and several friends just returned from a one week stay in Bali. Made was recommended to us from our friends. Bali is the most amazing place we have visited and Made was one of the reasons we had such an enjoyable stay. I would and will highly recommend Made to all my closest friends and family. Made went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure our visit was wonderful. Not only did he accommodate our schedule any time of the day, his kind and caring demeanor made him such a joy to be around. His recommendations on places to visit, shop, eat, relax..at were all perfect. It was very relaxing to not have to plan everything out, trusting Made to plan our days in Bali. He also accompanied us into the tourists sights as our own personal tour guide, giving us all the info about the places we were visiting. He wanted to ensure that everyone was happy and we were. When we return we will be sure to have Made as our driver again. Thank you Made! We look forward to seeing you again!

Made was a helpful and fun driver to have during the 5 days trip my friends and i spent at Bali. We knew him when he offered help to one of our friends when she was sick and too faint to walk. He also introduced us to places with the best bargains! Trips with him are always funny and entertaining! Thank you Made! We'll be back to find you soon! We will always remember you LA =)

To Whom It May Concern:
My wife and I had the privilege of staying at the Four Seasons Sayan and
Jimbaran Bay from June 29th to July 9th, 2006. Upon our arrival at the Bali
airport we were greeted by our driver Made Sudarsana who drove us to Sayan.
Made immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. He spoke English
very well and answered all our questions regarding Bali and the resort. As
a result of our initial and subsequent contacts with Made we requested his
services throughout our entire stay in Bali (both at Sayan and Jimbaran
Made has a very classy and kind way about him. His disposition is suited
for even the most discriminating clients. Made most definitely added to
the enjoyment of our trip. We highly recommend his services to anyone
needing a knowledgeable, patient and thoughtful driver.

He was the only one who offered us help when our friend was feeling unwell. He offered to drive us to the hotel lobby. Thanks Made! Because of his sincerity and willingness to extend his help to us, we engaged him as our driver for three days.
Made was very informative, while searching for places to sightsee, he recommended places to us, such as the Barong Dance, and Batik Painting, which helped us to understand and appreciate the Bali culture.
Made was very patient, and never failed to provide us with information about the Balinese Culture, and helped us in getting traditional Balinese goods that are affordable and of good quality. Our friend, Laureen was able to purchase her Balinese plates, which was the best buy, throughout her whole shopping spree in Bali. Made even extended help by bringing Laureen to several Balinese Market to look at the local fruit, Salek Bali.
Made even recommended Nusa Dua to us, which was a great area for water sports and traditional spa massage. We did Parasailing in a large group, and some of us did snorkeling and jet-skiing. We spent a whole day pampering ourselves, and ended our day having seafood by the sandy beach while watching the sunset – thanks to Made, we truly had a wonderful and uniquely Balinese experience.
Our car trips were enjoyable and carefree, with Made engaging in jokes and conversations with our group, this made the car journeys from one place to the other seem short despite the long journeys transiting from one area to the next. Because of Made, we found the time that we have spent in Bali worthwhile and well-spent.
Towards the last day, we found out that our plane was delayed by two hours. Made saved us from boredom by asking us to check-in our heavy luggage and offered to drive us around with no additional charges. We were touched by the offer, and spent the additional two hours driving around sightseeing. We bid our goodbyes to Made at the Airport and he wished us a safe flight home.
Made, we will never forget your help and friendliness, for this group of first-time Bali-Goers, you really made our stay in Bali a wonderful and unforgettable experience! We will be back soon!
Remember our “OK la! No need no need!”… (come Singapore to find us)

Made helped make our Bali experience the best. Safe, Kind, considerate,
knowledgeable and trustworthy. He was an incredible guide and driver. In some cases,
I entrusted my wife and children to him for shopping and sightseeing, and realized
Made would do anything to help make our trip fantastic

Hi my name is Anne. I am from Australia and have visited Bali 3 times.
On my second visit about 10 years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Made who was our
allocated driver for the day. He was booked through our hotel. Made was a very good
driver and extremely reliable and flexible to our travel needs. We trusted him so
much so we chose him for all our transport needs through the rest of the holiday.
When we returned for our 3rd visit I tracked him down and asked if he would be our
driver for the duration of that holiday as well. He was delighted to hear from us
and remembered our special little needs.
I am in a wheelchair and Made was only too happy to help when we required his
assistance. He even took me to a traditional Bali doctor, and after he asked our
permission, he picked up his Mum on the way. His Mum brought along a traditional
Bali offering that she gave to the Bali doctor.
This visit was an incredible and truly unique experience. We sat with the locals
amongst the family chickens in the little courtyard whilst we waited our turn. The
Doctor then gave me a comprehensive, and I mean really dedicated assessment, before
making me a special mixture to massage into my body. He then spent some time at his
alter on my behalf to complete what I call the Bali magicĂ treatment.
Another custom-made trip was an ambitious journey to the far north coast of Bali. I
had a vague idea of our destination, but he was keen to go and we had a great tour
of Bali west coast along the way whilst I found what I was looking for. Made was
happy to stop every now and then if we saw a shop or sightseeing area.
Made is very helpful, keen to service, and is a very flexible man who clearly shows
his wish that the traveler will enjoy his country as much as possible. He has many
suggestions of places to go, including destinations, special activities/ ceremonies
and is on call to your needs.
Thank you Made we will always choose you in our Bali transport travels.
