Shore Excursion, Bali (Benoa)

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are considering options while in port in Benoa, Bali (Oct.). Options include:
1. Elephant "Safari" in Taro
2. Drive to Jatiluwih passing through various villages and photographing rice terraces and landscape along the way
3. visit to the temple in Mengwi, and Tanah Lot and see Batik made along the way

All of these sound fun and interesting. An agent told us to pass on seeing more temples this stop and not to miss the elephant adventure. A look at the web site gives me the impression that this is a nice place if you really want to ride an elephant, but the safari doesn't really take you off the compound/resort property. Is this cool or not?

The other two options are not described in good detail, and I get the impression that the temple tour passes much of the same points of interest as the villages and terraces tour. A fourth option is to reserve a car through the cruise line and tell the driver where we would like to go. Thoughts?

Thanks, Kingster
