What people are saying about Kintamani

Don't think twice about booking. This tour was outstanding and totally exceeded all expectations. My 16 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect from the coffee tasting, to the school visit, to the 20km down hill gliding and village tour. Our guides were friendly and full of knowledge and information. We would do this tour again and highly recommend it to others.

Our guide Antik was really patient and gentle. He provided the itinerary to us when we first met, and is knowledgeable. Although the actual itinerary is a bit different to the descriptions here, we had a very good look around the Ubud area, and was not tired by the end of the day.

The Ubud trip was fantastic, we enjoyed the rice terraces, luwak coffee and monkey forest. Antik was our guide and he was very hospitable and made our day trip fun and comfortable. Antik answered lots of our temple questions.

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Amazing places to visit, experience and hear about their culture. We had an amazing tour guide, Pakis, who was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely recommended.

The day tour was amazing ! So many cultural things to see. Our driver was so friendly and kind too ! Best service
