Mr.Abbe is a nice guy and guided us to many good foods of good value for money. Search no further if you wish to have a comfortable and honest driver.
A group of 10 of us hired Abbe, Abadi Transport Private Tour for our stay in Bali (Nov 17-21) for airport transfer, full tour and 1/2day tour. After doing much survey online and reading excellent reviews on Tripadvisor i decided to get in touch with Abbe through email correspondence. Abbe was prompt in replying my emails that within 2 email everything was finalized and book.
His rate were reasonable compared to other tour agency. His transport was comfortable. Abbe suggested good restaurant, good spa and gave us good bargaining tips. The most important aspect we look in a guide or driver is someone who is reliable, honest and safe which is what Abbe and his tour company is all about.
On the last day of our trip a prior arrangement of an airport transfer from the hotel bail out on us. A quick call to Abbe helped us arranged an airport transfer on a short notice. For that we will always be grateful to Abbe. I will highly recommend anyone to hire Abadi transport. Thank you Abbe for making our holiday so enjoyable and will definitely hire you again in our next visit to Bali which will be next year… ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

It was my girlfriend and I’s first time visiting Bali so we decided to hire some private transport to get around Bali. We were looking for someone that knew Bali well and come across professional and honest in every aspect of the tour. Abbe picked us up from the airport and with no hesitation I told Abbe I wanted to try out the local food and the real side of Bali and not just the tourist side. From that moment onwards I knew that Abbe was a honest and genuine person. Abbe would also help us arrange our itinerary as we wanted to do alot of things in Bali, and would also be spot on when picking you up for time.
Abbe would watch out for us and help us avoid paying too much for items as tourist in Bali get ripped off pretty badly. Abbe would tell us the rough price of items and also provide honest recommendations to places to go such as site seeing and eating. Travelling around in his air conditioned vehicle and with his well spoken English the journey in Bali was definitely an enjoyable one. It was sad to leave Bali as we only just gotten to know Abbe and his funny humour “Babi Guling eh, macam pun boleh?”. Abbe slowly became more than just a friend to us but a brother you could just hang out and be comfortable and not afraid of anything whilst travelling. Thanks again!!!

Abbe (Nyoman) was recommended in one of the on-line travel forum in the Philippines. Although he is not the cheapest in Bali, my wife & I were very impressed with his service. He was always on time (earlier, actually than the scheduled pick-up) with his sparkling clean silver Suzuki Arena van and adjusted to our schedule as we requested. You can contact him through his Facebook account with FB name of Abbe Bali Driver. With his 10 year experience in this business, you cannot go wrong in choosing him.

We returned to Bali for the first time in 6 years, stunned to see how much it had changed. Gone were the Bemo’s and in were the metered taxi’s and drivers using a variety of small 4wd vehicles. Still evident was the high pressure to sell product including transport. Tripadvisor research led us to Abbe (Provides Transport in Bali,Ubud,Kuta,Sanur and Nusa Dua). We rang him and made an appointment for his services for a day.
He was prompt, his car spotless and most of all, he was happy to receive only the agreed amount of 400K rup, about $50 for the day. There were no stops at wood carvers, jewellery makers etc for him to collect a commission unless we specifically requested it. At each stop he would brief us up on how best to deal with the locals to avoid the inevitable pressure. We did not try to barter in any way with him over the price, we just sought honesty and can’t fault the service he provided. There are a ton on drivers on the island and I am sure he is not the only good one, but using him sure saved us a lot of stress. I kept his number and even contacted him later in the week to seek advise which he gave without fee or question. Great service from a nice bloke!
Nyoman Abbe is one of the best driver I met so far after backpacking travel around South East Asia. During our 4 days in Bali, we found Abbe is a man that has the patience to wait while you enjoying your dinner or time around the island. He also plan our time and places of visit and our journey went out well under his guidance. The condition of the car is 10/10.
P.S If I am going back to Bali, I will find back Abbe not only as driver but as a friend who is cheerful all the time.

We just came back from Bali. We spend 4 days in Bali and we did hired a private driver to bring us around in Ubud and Kuta. The driver is Abbe Nyoman (he is from Abadi Transport) ,He is based in Kuta but he can take you anywehere in Bali. I would like to recommend this guy as he had great knowledge about Bali and he is good in helping us in planning the itinerary (if you do not have one). He always on time and shared with us all the information (for eg, where to bargain, where we can get good food, where to avoid hassle and etc). More important, he is trustworthy and we really glad to have him as friend now. With his great sense of humor, the trip is getting very fun and full with laughter. We will definitely get him again if we are going to Bali. Again …highly recommended this guy …

Thanks Pak Nyoman for the great services while we were in Bali. We are Malaysian tourists and stayed in Kuta for 3 days. We were so grateful to have Pak Nyoman as our driver + tourist guide + photographer. Pak Nyoman is flexible, knowledgeable about Bali history and has sense of humor. It’s like we have known him for a year! Thanks again. We encourage other tourists to take his services while in Bali..

we just returned from a holiday in Bali which was booked through your company We had a wonderful trip and We found a best driver in Bali – who arranged a car and driver for our first tour in Bali,her name is Nyoman from Kuta! We were glad that the Driver did not bring us to shops or galleries and pressured to buy things as is common in a number of tours we have done.We have been telling our friends about the great value and service you provided and will definitely look to you again for future holiday tours.
We had booked for our day tour in Bali with Abadi transport Private tour. He came highly recommended from members at the tripadvisor travel site. I recommend everybody to travel with Abadi transport private tour.
Our Day Tour:
>Start from Kuta to Ayung river rafting
> Ubud:(Mongkey forest, art Market,palace & lunch).

Thank you for making our journey to Bali a very memorable one and

He had a tremendous knowledge of the island,culture and the history, his English was perfect, and he really made the trip for all of us! He imparted his love of Bali and helped us to know and love the country as well,and it is because of Ariana that everyone there had a wonderful time. and he checks it every day.You can tell him I sent you to him for we still correspond. I would use him again when I go back next year–he is a delight and makes the trip better because he is there. I hope you will be lucky enough to get him.

We did a whole day tour with Abbe and I think I could not have seen Bali without him!He made the entire tour worthwhile for me and my friends!I am from the hospitality industry and handle loads of clients via my tours and trek company here in Kathmandu and I am completely satisfied with the tour Abbe took us for. There was never a dull moment in thos 10 hours, he is all smiles inspite of the hectic drive! Abbe you deserve a standing ovation from my team for the wonderful time we had all because of you. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone that I know is going to Bali and everybody reading the reviews here too. Abbe is the BEST!!
