This was an amazing trip. The sunset view is incredible beautiful and my expectations have been exceeded many times. Thank you! The hospitality of the team is superb. Everything, from the punctual pick up the to the ascent and back was well managed. Arta, the driver, knows the island like his pocket vest and was like my guide on Mt Batu, Patra, are very welcoming and helpful at any point in time. Both speak fluently english. I can warmly recommend this tour to everyone who is visiting Bali - this is definitely as a must see in your bucket list.

We had a great Trip with the Team. Putu, Patra and Koma were so kind and professional drivers/guides. Patra took us up Mt Batur, and he was always making sure we were doing well, he knows the area perfectly and was able to give us a lot of information. He definitely made our sunrise hike a success :)

Quite challenging but rewarding. I was lucky enough to have nice weather, but in 15 after sunrise everything was covered in clouds. Monkey stole my breakfast chocolate. Guide and driver were very helpful and knowledgeable. Make sure you take spare set of clothes apart from jacket.

A superb discovery at sunrise. Our guide, Wayan, was very attentive and really friendly. The ascent is not difficult but still requires to be in good physical shape.

All the team pak Patra, Putu etc amazing and v helpful !
