It was an amazing experience. The driver(Ardi) and the tour guide were super nice I highly recommended it. The driver speaks fluently English so we had no problem with the communication. The hike was unforgettable and the hot spring was relaxing. Overall, it was an unforgettable trip.
An absolute MUSTTTTT!!!
Wow… I don’t even know where to begin… my friends and I (5 NYC gals) scheduled the hike for our 2nd day to try to help us out with jetlag later. We stayed in Seminyak and the our driver Made Les (pronounced “Mad-day” and best driver everrrrr) arrived right on time and even waited for us because… again… it was 5 girls… hahaha! He was the absolute BEST!!! Spoke perfect English and was so knowledgeable about all things Bali!! The hike itself was so intense but so worth it! Our guide for the mountain was a young guy named Gede (pronounced “Good day”) and he was also very sweet and amazing and very patient (as we did struggle and had to take many breaks… haha)! The top was indescribable!!! One of the best views for the sunrise and we even got to hang with some monkeys!! After the hike, we spent a few hours at the hot springs! Omg….. also a MUST!!! It was the perfect way to relax after such a huge hike! After the hot springs, we did the Luwak coffee tour and I was just so impressed! Some of us don’t even drink coffee yet we enjoyed it very much! Very interesting process!! After the coffee tour, at this point… it was about 2pm and we realized we needed to do some grocery shopping for our villa and Made was so sweet… he took us to the super market and waited for us to finish before dropping us back off at our villa. We felt awful because the day took longer than anticipated due to the extended time we spent in the hot springs and the detour to the grocery store but Made was such a trooper and so accommodating! At no point did we feel rushed and we were able to enjoy the best first day to our Bali extravaganza!!! If you are interested in booking this tour, ask for Made Les!!! He is so amazing!!! You will not regret it!
Nous avons passé un super moment pour la montée de mont Batur
J’ai réservé tardivement (la veille fin d’après midi) et tout a été organisé de manière très fluide par Bali Sun Tour.
Notre chauffeur, Lasa est arrivé pile à l’heure et il était charmant avec l’envie qu’on passe une excellente journée. Il a attendu autant de temps que nous le souhaitions que chacune des activités en étant très discret et à notre service.
Notre guide était super sympa également et la vue à l’arrivée est splendide. Nous avons ensuite passé du temps aux sources chaudes (Hot Springs); c’était un peu moins bien que ce que j’attendais, en particulier en termes d’hygiène dans l’eau mais c’était tout de même agréable.
La plantation de café est ensuite quelque chose d’interessant sans être exceptionnel non plus.
Je recommande ce tour, c’est fiable et sérieux !
