    I had a great time. My driver Puti picked me up and was great. He told me about local culture and what life was like farming in Bali. I met my Guide Wayan (who is another great knowleagable guy) who gave me my bike, water and helmet and off we went. He took me off into the amazing lava landscape.. absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately the mountain bike route had been shortened due to people complaining that it was too difficult. Maybe give a choice when booking? Wayan agreed to take me a little further which was greatly appreciated. We then rode on to an stunning temple in the lake and then to the hotsprings where I left Wayan. The springs were a little more touristy then I was expecting. But the dip to refresh was very welcome. From there, Puti took me on to the fantastic Amora Bali Restaurant which is sat on the lip of the volcano crater with magnificent views across to Mount Batur and beyond. The food was amazing. After eating my fill at the buffet lunch we headed home.

Terrific experience. Something I’d never be able achieve alone. Pick up was exactly at the time proposed, comfortable car with air condition and then the hike. I had very uncomfortable shoes (my bad, I didn’t plan I’d do any activity like this), so the guide shared his sneakers with me. It’s was such a gesture of kindness in the middle of the dark and nowhere. Extremely grateful. The sunrise was terrific and the breakfast there. I think it’s a lifetime experience. I highly recommend this company. I’d never organize it all by myself.

My experience hiking up Mount Batur was absolutely amazing! Highlight of my trip in Bali!! Our driver Kelan catered to all our needs and Ketut our hiking guide was fantastic leading us up the mountain in the dark. Ketut knew where all the challenging obstacles were and made sure we were safe at all times. Would definitely recommend!!!

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.

Patrick our guide for the hike was brilliant . He was lively funny and energetic. What a truly nice and sincere person. I hope you are lucky enough to get Patrick because he made this day out one of the best. The massage was also amazing and I will be going back myself!
