What a fantastic tour. Wayan Madya was an excellent guide; one member of my group was struggling with the hike and he supported her the whole way up. It’s amazing that he does the hike every day. Kind and thoughtful. Batur was stunning at the top, cloudy as we went in January, but the clouds surprisingly cleared for a few minutes while we were at the top and we go to see an amazing view! The hot springs afterward were also such a treat, especially when they feel deserved. Would do again and recommend to everyone.

Great time and one of the best parts of trip to Bali. Our guide, Tehnik, knew this mountain like the back of his hand and kept the whole group motivated to get to the top. Clouds put a damper on the sunrise, but Tehnik knew the best places for those photo spots as the weather started to clear on the way down. Overall, 10/10 experience

Absolutely amazing adventure!! Full day of activities we will never forget. Enhanced majorly by our wonderful driver Dekwan Selem Gis, super friendly, polite and gave excellent advice. Would recommend hiring Dekwan as a personal driver for day to day in general! His direct WhatsApp +62 819-1839-2050

I had a great time. The cycling was a fun way to explore the lava trails and also see a part of local Bali that I do not get to see from a car! Finishing off with a soak in hot spring bath and delicious lunch ensured I had the most satisfying afternoon siesta!!

Edy and Wayan have been great guides and reliable drivers and made our day easy and appreciable. That we unfortunately could not see a proper sunrise, can not be blamed on them
