Private Tour: Bali Cultural Heritage Tour

Private Tour: Bali Cultural Heritage Tour

Your private tour starts with a visit to the Blahbatu village, renowned for its craftsmanship. See artisans at work as they make the musical instruments used in a gamelan, an Indonesian percussion orchestra commonly featured in religious and other special events. Next, travel back in time with a visit to an archaeological museum, where you’ll see funeral relics belonging to the royal family. Dive into Bali’s ancient past while browsing artifacts from the Bronze Age and Stone Age, and gain insight to the island’s more recent history, from Indian traders to Dutch settlers.

Then, travel through the plantation village of Sri Batu and see local farmers tending crops of Eastern coffee, fruit and spices, such as cloves. Continue to the spectacular mountain region of Kintamani, known for its active volcano, Mt Batur, with remnants of lava running down the peak. At the foot of the mountain is glistening Lake Batur, the largest lake in Bali offering some of the most spectacular views on the island. Here, take some time to enjoy lunch at a nearby restaurant (own expense).

After lunch, head to Penglipuran, a traditional village with unique cultural and historical characteristics. The real beauty, apart from its breath-taking surroundings, is that it remains untouched by modernization. Wander through the dense bamboo groves and see local carvers creating everything from household wares to bamboo wind chimes.

Finally, stop at Bukit Jati with amazing panoramic views of the countryside and the ocean in the distance. Relax in the tranquility of this picturesque place and enjoy afternoon tea before returning to your hotel.

This was a full day tour that took us to some very spectacular places around Bali. A fantastic introduction to Bali we did this tour on our first full day in Bali. We were privy to beautiful views, rich history and our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting unique cultural experience.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

This was okay. After doing the other three trips, I'd pretty much seen everything. I did get to see a local instrument-making establishment which was fun.
