The set tariff for tour guide services are reviewed and revised once every two years and submitted to the provincial government of Bali for ratification.

The new tariff is published to all members of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA). Ketut Arsana of ASITA Bali insist that members of his association pay in accordance with the tariff set by the government.

 “The tour guides are our partners, they are on the front line dealing with the guests. So, they are entitled to their rights. If there are any agencies providing fees lower than standard, please do report it to us,” said Arsana.
