While these are rough estimates Bali's prices are always affordable in comparison to the US/Canada and tourism helps locals provide for their families. The balinese depend greatly on tourism as their main source of income. I highly encourage you to use locals when planning excursions.
It helps g greatly to know the right person when planning.
One of our favorite resources was our now good friend KoMong. He runs a well organized private, personalized excursion service to anywhere and everywhere you want to see on the island. He is calm, punctual, safe, and extremely kind. You can find him on TripAdvisory here.
