This is truly a breathtaking and luxurious experience! Wira was a fantastic driver and tour guide! The hike isn’t for softies, and the hot springs are a beautiful reward. This was such an amazing day, and Wira added information, history and culture, and great conversation. The sunrise was gorgeous, and the hot springs were such a treat. In the generous Balinese way, Wira even helped with me with a separate ride. I 100% recommend this tour, service, and guide!

An amazing experience overall. Our guide was caring and knowledgeable, making sure we were comfortable at all times. Our driver Rudi went above and beyond and even took us around after to see some more sights. Not to mention stopping to get us some snake fruit to try. 10/10 experience!

This trip was incredible. we really enjoyed ourselves. Our guide, Abdidewa was amazing. He made sure we were comfortable, had everything we needed and provided a lot of fun! Really nice guy. The highlight of the trip is the hidden canyon. Would highly recommend.

Very easy to book and to pay. The arrangements were done well. Our driver Wira provided exceptional service from pick-up until drop-off back to hotel. The guide paid attention to both group abilities and target time to hit the summit. Great experience!

Excellent tour. Picked up on time. Good vehicle and driver. Fantastic conversational guide. Good facilities. And the volcano is an easy climb.
