May I start with the fact it was amazing, we saw a turtle and coffee plantation was wonderful, and so was our guide. But honestly I’m worried about what effect we have over the ocean there, me and my boyfriend gathered a bag of trash during our snorkle. And there is a lot more to go. I hope more people will do that, as it doesn’t cost much and it does a great deal for the fish who were trying to eat it, thinking it’s food. Why not admire the nature instead of destroying it? After all, we all live in it too.

This tour is an absolute must for anyone visiting Bali! The view from the top is amazing. My driver Komang Wira collected me from my hotel on time he friendly and polite and an absolutely pleasure to speak to m on the journey to and from the trailhead. It was a slow walk to the top of the volcano for me and my guide Komang was very patient friendly and supportive and walked at my pace. He was great company for the hike too! I will definitely do this hike again.

Our driver Sapri was super friendly, kind and generally brilliant. He went even went the extra mile and helped us get to our next hotel after returning. Our guide Pande was also very lovely and very knowledgeable. We were amazed that he served us eggs cooked in the volcano heat for breakfast! Would 100% recommend both!

My wife and I loved this experience! Wira and Ari were amazing guides for the hike, springs and the coffee tour. Would highly recommend booking this! We plan to do it again for our next trip to Bali.

Our driver Putu Dibya was great! He was very friendly and looked after us the whole day! He took us to some lovely places for food and he is an awesome driver! Thank you!
