Getting around in Bali can be a challenge; with the island’s labyrinth road networks, highly variable driving conditions and generally unsafe traffic patterns. It’s in your best interests to find a reliable private driver and stick with them for your travels.

Oka understands these issues, and makes an extra effort to provide a higher standard of service to his many regular customers. While it’s common for half-day trips to get the job done, full day trips between the island’s major cities are desirable, especially when running important errands or work tasks.

Oka knows Bali quite well, so getting around and finding your destinations is relatively easy. Competitive rates for half-day and full-day trips keep things fair and consistent; but if you’re a regular customer feel free to discuss monthly retainer rates for Oka’s private driving services.

    Wayan has been our chosen driver in Ubud for almost 20 years ago now and we wouldn’t use any other in Bali. He is totally professional, punctual and efficient. Wayan always has a beaming smile and is extremely friendly and honest. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

    Oka has been driving us for many years whenever we are in Bali, and we have come to consider him a good friend. He is extremely reliable, trustworthy and knowledgeable, and nothing is too much trouble for him. He also has exceptional driving skills and we always feel very safe with him. The car is clean and comfortable and Oka’s charges are very reasonable. We would absolutely recommend him.

      Wayan is a very safe driver, speaks perfect english and is reasonably priced. Beyond this, Wayan is one of the most amazing humans I have ever known in my life. He is the ONLY private driver/tour guide in you want Bali. He has shown us all the most amazing spots he thinks we might enjoy. We happened to be in Ubud during Galungan, which is the most important ceremony of their calendar year. He took us to experience three different types of ceremonies. The most amazing happened to be the one in his own family home. Wayan and his family are literally salt of the earth. I am so happy to know them and I love watching Putu, his son, grow up.

    Oka is the VERY best! On roads that can be chaotic and bumpy – his driving is calm and smooth. I often get car sick, but not once in his car. His rates are a steal! He knows his way around, always remains professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and kind. I know that my loved ones are in good hands when they are with Oka and I never worry. 5 stars

    Wayan was recommended to me by a friend for my first visit to Bali and I was not disappointed. Wayan was always on time, friendly, kind, efficient, with good communication skills and a very safe driver, in other words a professional. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable too. I booked Wayan 3 times during the 8 days I was in Bali and he went out of his way to accommodate every request. I have suggested him to friends and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

    Today we had to say goodbye to Oka! He was our driver for the past 7 days-and we feel very blessed we had a chance to meet him! He is trully one of the nicest people we have met-although balinese people in general are very friendly, Wayan Oka is among friendliest of all! Trustworthy, punctual, professional and always full of information about Bali, their culture, tradition and everything around!

    Highly recommended driver/tour guide – and also as host. He told us he just started with renting apartments and we will be glad to stay with him next time in Ubud!

    We wish him and his family all the best! We will meet us again hopefully

    Wayan Oka was our driver from 21 -st May till 8 th June 2016. Recommended by a friend of us in the Netherlands. The most important thing we can say is: when you need a (private) driver, choose Wayan Oka. He is friendly, helpful, speaks English very well, has a nice car, and is an excellent driver. Thanks to him we saw the most beautiful sights of Bali.
    Thanks Wayan, hope to see you once again!
