WAKA LAND CRUISER
The tour starts when your driver picks you up in a ’92 Land Rover Defender from your villa or hotel. As you drive through emerald green rice paddies, your friendly and knowledgeable cruise director will take the time to explain the things you see along the way and the ins and outs of Balinese and Hindu culture. You visit a traditional stone-quarry where you see how the building blocks of Bali come to life, as well as a traditional Balinese farmer’s house, where a welcoming family shows you how the Balinese day-to-day life is organised. As the tour goes on, the driver will stop at gorgeous photography sites, including the spectacular UNESCO protected Jatiluwih Rice Fields, and he gives you plenty of time to get those stellar pics that will make your friends at home envious.
