It was my first time hiking, but I managed to make the climb thanks to my guide (I unfortunately forgot his name…). He was very helpful, and made sure to support people in our group when certain parts of the climb were too steep, etc. I will warn you though, the climb down is quite tough. It is very easy to slip, and people do get hurt if they are not careful. Anyways, I’d recommend this to anyone who would like to challenge themselves (you’ll feel very accomplished once the climb is over!). Special shout out to our driver Bagonk for getting us safely to and from the climb at ungodly hours!

The yoga was very eye opening and thought provoking. I was able to practice more flexibility. The whole entire day was awesome. From visiting the temple to the aura cleansing I was amazed. The monkey forest was the cherry on top of it all because it was a great ending to the day. My tour guide was amazing and filled with knowledge for sure. I am grateful to have had this as my first tour for my vacation. Definitely set the bar pretty high for what’s to come.

Had a great trip! Our guide Desa was lovely and even made good pictures of us. Tanat Loh with the amazing sunset was the best! Rice fields and coffee plantage was also one of my favorites. And the waterfall! Can't describe. Just a perfect trip! Got catched up right on time in the morning (the guide was already waiting), got back late at night, full with impressions of the day. Book that trip, it's phenomenal!

Yuni was our driver and also tour guide. He was amazing, friendly and passionate. We started the tour at 4am. Managed to catch the sunrise at Setumba Hill, Borobudur Temple, Jeep Tour at Merapi and had Kopi Luwak with lunch. Even extended our day trip with him because it was too short..

Wonderful private tour in the north of Bali, I arrived early at the waterfall so there were basically no tourists, I could even bathe in the waterfall ! Thanks again to my guide Made Sudiartha, always giving me explanations on Balinese culture and recommending me good places.
