Penida Tours is a locally owned, operated and run tour company on Nusa Penida. Established in 2013, we pride ourselves on operating with the utmost care and respect for local communities, culture and land. Our mission is to strengthen the economy of Nusa Penida by empowering community members to share the prosperity that comes with increasing tourism. Check out some of our sustainable principles and corporate philosophy below. Penida Tours strives to guide the development of tourism to a sustainable direction. We conduct our tours respectfully, slowly and gently in line with the traditional cultural and spiritual heritage of Nusa Penida. For the people, by the people.
Born, bred and raised on Nusa Penida, Wayan is an experienced, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Wayan strives to provide guests with the most enjoyable experience of the island possible. Wayan is Penida Tours' primary tour guide, you can find him in the office or out on the road. Look out for the signature guitar in hands, and smile on his face.
You have the choice of either booking online through our booking form, or emailing us directly. You can also just stop by the office - if you are in Nusa Penida!
You can choose a fully arranged (including boat transfer) or partially arranged package. We can also organise accommodation and meals for you, as per your request.
WHERE ARE WE?
We are located in Nusa Penida - an island about 40 minutes away from Bali by boat. We have a full pick-up and drop-off service available, or find us on the main road next to 'The Gallery' cafe.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: THE SUSTAINABLE PRINCIPLES at PENIDA TOURS
Rotating roster of guides and helpers - ensuring a number of interested locals can partake in the activites of Penida Tours assists us in spreading the benefits of tourism around the community.
Monthy donation of funds to various Banjar (villages) - each month, we donate 15% of our profits back into local village development funds.
Roster of motorbikes for hire - we have numerous families who we have contracted with to rent their bikes to visitors. This ensures again that economic empowerment is spread throughout the community.
Visitor cap - we place a cap on the maximum number of guests we can accommodate each month. This ensures the local communities will not be over commercialised, and helps us maintain harmonious and beneficial relationships with these communities.
Minimum standards for incoming guests - we ask each incoming guest to respect the local culture and local sensitivities by dressing conservatively, showing respect when taking photographs and ensuring conduct in temples adheres with local standards.
Penida Tours has big hopes for the future of Nusa Penida. We are determined to provide a means for locals to become entrepreneurial, take matters into their own hands and determine how the inevitable increase of tourism on Nusa Penida will affect them. We oppose the acquisition of land by foreign investors, instead encouraging locals to keep their land which has often passed down multiple generations. We believe each member of the Nusa Penidian community - and not foreign investors - has the right to benefit from the culture, heritage and landscape of their own island.
We hope to kickstart local (and sustainable!) entreprenurship project in Nusa Penida soon. If you would like more information, or want to get involved, feel free to email us at
