It was a wonderful and memorable experience! I had a lot of fun and great moments even if I was travelling alone. Special thanks to Erli and Ketut for making this experience even more enjoyable! Erli come pick up me at my hotel perfectly on time, we got in touch via WhatsApp just few moments after my booking to arrange our meeting point and time. Along the way we get the opportunity to talk and exchange and it was really great to talk with Erli the 1 hour driving to Batur passed very quickly! Ketut, he was our guide and a great leader! I was in a group with 2 guys from the UK and a girl from Germany. Ketut was with us along the way up, guiding us and making sure that everyone and everything was OK until we get up and in our way down too! I had a unique experience seeing the sunrise and getting a generous breakfast at the top of Batur Volcano . To conclude, I can say that I definitely recommend this tour and experience! Thanks guys!

I really liked the Mount Batur Hike. Although it was pretty crowded on the way and on the top of the mountain, it was an lovely experience. Before the walk you can get coffee or tea and get a bottle of water. Also the steamed egg and banana were nice as breakfast. I liked the hot spring as well. Another highlight was the Luwak coffee plantation. For me it was definitely an extra for the day, even though we were tired after the walk. The guide told us something about the coffee and the harvest process and we also got to taste different kinds of coffee and tea. I would definitely recommend booking the extras! We had a very good and enthusiastic driver, he was driving safely and told us a lot about himself, Bali and the Balinese culture. Also the guide at mount Batur was nice and funny.

The trip was very good organised. As agreed via WhatsApp, the driver Devha came on time to my accommodation. He was super friendly and informative during the trip. Then we met our also great tour guide to the trip up the mountain. I can only recommend!

It's one of the must-do things in Bali. Adventurous, great view, wonderful experience.

Great experience! Ascent with the starry sky then sunrise, just magnificent!
