What people are saying about Bali

What a hike! We got picked up by Agus exactly on the time he said. He was very nice and we talked a bit but as we had a short night he let us just enjoy the drive in the dark. Our guide was Nova. Such a great guy! He let us rest when we needed, was running up and down between us and the 2 other girls making sure everybody is ok on the way up. We got lucky with the weather and saw the sun coming up, even got some cool pics. The breakfast was ok for most people, I’m not fan of banana but honestly you’ll survive that few hours on biscuits too. The hike was tough both up and down, but doable. Make sure to have proper hiking/trail shoes for good grip. And it’s definitely cold, especially after sweating 2 hours. Overall it was a great experience!

What an amazing trip! Got to see so much and still had the whole day to explore Ubud. The trek was super well organized, the hot spring had great views and so nice to soak after the hike. The coffee plantation host was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our driver Mira was fantastic! He was super quick at responding to messages, very friend and kind. Our trekking guide Pande was amazing, so full of energy, funny, and took unreal photos for us. Can’t thank both of these guides enough, they both really made the tour!

Incredible experience! From pick up to drop off, the tour was amazing and our tour guide was so informative and friendly (and super patient!) Highly recommended!

This was a great way to enjoy uluwatu's spectacular beach clubs. It was our first day in Bali so was a great introduction.

Beautiful sunrise but quite a difficult hike, worth it all in the end. Tour guide was exceptional.
