My name is Made and I was born in Payangan, a famous wood carving village, where I started carving wood at the age of 14.
I come from a family of farmers, and planted everything from bananas, chillis, durians, cocoa, cloves, and vanilla to rice until I moved to Sanur in 2003, nearby to my cousin Putu who often comes over.

I am passionate about wood carving, landscaping, building and love swimming with my young son Kadek around my house or on Sanur beach. I jog every morning to relax and keep in shape because I eat all day (a Balinese tradition!). I have been a tour guide for 10 years and love meeting people from all around the world.

One of my favourite things to do is bring guests to my hometown, where I can show them where I grew up and where my heart resides.

    We have just returned from our second family holiday to Bali .One of our best experiences in Bali has been spending time with Dika, Putu, Eka and Kadek. They are wonderful people who showed us the most beautiful places in Bali and they also are happy to teach us about their country and culture and are very willing to answer all the questions you might have. We will always treasure the time spent with this lovely family.

    This was a wonderful day trip and Made our host was very friendly. His English was great but he still wants to learn and improve which is an admirable quality. It was great to see "the real Bali" by trekking through rice terraces, farmland and jungle. Made pointed out lots of plant species and explained the use of the crops and animals. we actually met several of his family members including his dad, who had kindly and expertly made us some hats from palm leaves which is traditionl knowledge that is slowly disappearing. Made was also great about providing us water, coconuts, fruit throughout the day. A worthwhile and unforgettable experience. Govoyagin's website and customer service also made this an easy booking for us even when we wanted to customize it. Thanks!
