My travel partner and I chose our own transport option w/ the hot springs and it was a great day! We rode our rental scooter, it was not too hard to ride (there's no traffic that early in the morning). Be aware of scams trying to charge you an "entry fee". The guide who contacted me via Whatsapp was different from our hike guide. They seemed to arbitrarily divide hikers amongst guides. Inform them if you want to move at a faster pace. Our guide went slow to accommodate slower people in our group but it felt too slow. I and many other people wore running shoes. I am reasonably healthy but not super active, and the hike wasn't nearly as hard as I expected. Our guide took many breaks. We had no views at the top due to cloudy weather. The "natural" hot springs seemed more like overrated heated pools, but it was still relaxing with a nice view. The coffee plantation visit provides lots of samples, but advertised luwak coffee was an extra 50,000 IDR+.

While the 2:30am wake up to make it to Mt Batur in time for sunrise was rough, it was 1000% worth it when got up there! Even with the clouds in the sky (due to it being rainy season) we were blown away by what we saw. It’s also really cool to see a bunch of Jeeps gathering on the side of a mountain to watch the sunrise! After the sun was up, our awesome Jeep driver took us to the lava fields, left from the 1963 major eruption of the volcano. We were able to walk around the lava fields, with views of Mt Agung, and truly it was like nothing we’ve ever seen before. The whole thing was capped off with a visit to some hotsprings, which was a nice touch (though certainly not the crowning jewel of this tour). Overall I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Loved this whole experience. Pick up advice was excellent and accurate was on time. Walk/climb up Mt Batur was hard work and worth doing but is not for anyone not with an above average fitness. I was lucky to get a trail bike ride half way up to the top (an extra A$35) or I would not have made it. Be warned :-) Hot springs were fun and stop at the coffee "shop" was good bit would like tio have been able to buy a coffee to drink. Tour Guide (Mr Boring :-)) was wonderful and very helpful and informative.

Incredible experience with a great and warming staff. Special thanks to Teja for this journey, a great driver and friendly person. Also thanks to Rama and his brother for this experience and their amazing photography skills. I strongly recommend this activity!!!

excellent all round. Garis our driver was right on time and was very friendly and knowledgeable the hike was fun , not too difficult. our guide was great and the hot springs were very relaxing after the hike ☺️
