(But note that you do not need a 4x4 for Bali, a van will do nicely.)

We just come back from bali asnd we hired Dean as our driver.
we stayed with him 8 days and was AMAZING.
We would like to have a great vocabulary in English to express how wonderful was our coexistence with Dean.
He is a very pleasant, nice person, great sense of humor and he turned our trip a dream, we will never forget everything that he provided us.
Our permanence in Bali reached the perfection thanks to his professionalism and generosity. We felt as king and queen where everything that we wanted we received. He didn't measure efforts to please us and to turn our trip the best as possible. I never met a professional like him, kindly, playful and a lot, a lot, friendly.
We will keep in the heart that great friendship that was formed among us and all the great memories that he provided us.
Thank you very much .

I can second the recommendation of Dean. He's so much more than just a driver. I remember while we were in Bali he had two days with a couple with a very young baby, and in our conversations with us he mentioned trying to figure out what would be best for the baby, whether loud music at a dance would frighten him. That attention to detail and level of caring is what truly sets him apart.

The only concern might be size of vehicle -- but I know he was also car shopping while we were there -- so just ask him about that.
