Our driver Budi (from Tour Bali Driver) is a lovely, friendly and tactful person. He gave information to us and answered every question we had...and drove carefully. We visited different tourist attractions like the Hindu temple „Pura Puseh Desa Batuan“, Ubud monkey forest, Tegallalang Rice Terrace and the Tegenungan Waterfall. We also had a beautiful view on the vulcano „Gunung Batur“ and the lake. The included lunch was rich and tasty. There was a large buffet…with vegetarian food, too. It was fun to had a walk through the little coffee and spice plantation. We tried a different types of included tea and coffee in a very nice atmosphere. And we tasted also the Luwak coffee by surcharge. It was a special experience. The tour included more feasible sightseeing points (like goldsmith), but we skipped it out, because we wanted to have more time at the other tourist attractions. We saw a lot of different places of Bali….and the tour was not that expensive. We recommend Budis tour! ⭐️

Pick up was on time with a friendly driver and guide. Wira, my guide, was excellent for communicating, checking in multiple times throughout the day. He went above and beyond what was expected. Tea/coffee and local snack from the starting pot before we began the climb. The climb was harder than I expected however the guides were very patient and made me feel at ease when I needed to stop and take breaks. We were lucky to have a beautiful day with the sky transitioning from a clear stary night to a red fiery dawn and a colourful sun rise. We had breakfast and explored the top of the volcano before we began the descent. The descent was a tricky as it is steep. Shoes with a good grip definitely helped. Next up the hot springs were beautiful with good facilities, a free welcome drink, and a towel and locker were provided. Quick stop at a coffee plantation on the route home with free sampling of different coffees and teas. Arrived home in time for lunch.

We did the trip today with Antik as our guide and had a lovely day. It was a really easy way to get a good feel of Bali in such a short space of time. Antik gave us as much time as we required in at each stop and we never felt rushed or hurried in any way. At each stop there is essentially ‘add-ons’ which you can choose to do such as shops at the craft demonstrations or swings/zip lines at the rice terraces. These are all optional but can be a good place to pick up some presents should you choose. The lunch was nice but the view really makes it.

This was an amazing day! The hike was fairly challenging and the sunrise was extremely rewarding. Our guide WIRA was great and made sure we had a really good day. The trip to the springs was very relaxing

This was an amazing tour. Our guide Joe was so helpful and informative the whole time. He even took photos for us. I would definitely recommend booking this experience and hopefully you also get Joe!
