Hello there, my name is Apni. I was originally from Java, but have lived in Bali for 18 years ever since my university days. By day, I am a researcher and expert in Animal Husbandry, but by night, I am an active member of my community in Bali. There are few female guides in Bali, but I hope to be the guide who can introduce this beautiful country to you. Looking forward to meeting you!

    Explore Bali with a Female Guide

    Explore Bali with a Female Guide I booked a 2 day tour, mostly in Ubud, and it was the highlight of my trip. Great way to learn more about culture and history of Bali while still having fun. Two things: tours are actually organized by Baliedu and you will need extra for entrance fees and parking fees. My tour guides Ophelia did a great job explaining Balinese cultur. Would highly recommend!

    Ubud Fireflies Tour - A Countryside Adventure

    Ubud Fireflies Tour - A Countryside Adventure It’s an very educational tour where you get to observe and understand the lifecycle, living environment and behavior of fireflies. Come with open minds and enjoy the night adventure in the rice field!

    Ubud Fireflies Tour - A Countryside Adventure

    Ubud Fireflies Tour - A Countryside Adventure We did the fireflies tour with our guide Koko. It was absolutely magical walking out under the stars seeing the glow of the fireflies in the fields and hearing the crickets and the frogs. Koko was a very friendly and personable guide and gave us some interesting facts about the fireflies.

    Koko does great things for the local community, teaching local children English and buying art from them to give as gifts to his customers. Part of the money on this tour gets donated to helping the local community.

    At the end of the tour, Koko took us to a local cafe for some delicious Cassava chips and tea/coffee and gave us some beautiful Balinese artwork as a gift. A unique experience that I would highly recommend!

    Ubud Fireflies Tour - A Countryside Adventure

    Ubud Fireflies Tour - A Countryside Adventure First and foremost - the main even, watching the fireflies was really magical. We could see them dozens at a time flying over the rice fields. We could inspect them up close and hold them in our hands. In addition to the fireflies we saw ducks, frogs, and bats flying overhead.

    I would recommend wearing hiking boots rather than flipflops. When walking in the grass our feet were covered in small little ants that bite, which was really distracting from the peacefulness of the experience. Another note is that from the event description I was expecting the trip to be led by Apni and have dinner together, but she sent her student Made (who is a super nice guy and knowledgeable himself). The food at dinner wasn't anything special (we had the fish) but the setting of the restaurant was quite nice and it felt like a local joint, away from the tourist hustle of Ubud.

    In summary, I would totally recommend this trip to others, but would just adjust my expectations a little.
