This was Bali/Indonesia for me, just stunning!
Loved the fresh coconut and banana at rice fields. Loved the views and walk in the rice fields.
Loved the waterfalls.
Loved the sunrise/views at Kintamani.

This was planned to perfection several resources were being used to execute this..
- Lise was super kind and pleasant as the english speaking guide.
- Driver.. took care of breakfast the banana
- Local guide who also carried stuff/snacks, helped in difficult parts of climb and water crossings
- facilities at the starting point/rice fields for change of clothes etc.
- local rice field guy who brought the coconuts

very professional..

Tips: Have a separate pair of shoes/sandals suitable for water crossings / walking on slippery stones in the water while getting to waterfalls..

Bali Kintamani tour is wonderful for a memorable and exciting holiday.Tour guide Beni takes us through various craft villages(seluk and painting- village etc) after a unique traditional Barong Dance(to begin with) and picturesque rice fields with characterisric terrestrial-farming and to the awe-struck site of Mount Batur(inactive volcano) with Lake Batur shoulder to shoulder; The view of Mount Batur is awesome,especially from the Restaurant where we had lunch.Finally the tour was rapped up with the visit to a typical Balinese ancient house ,which is of historical interest. Guide Bene could have interacted more with the very limited tourists(six) during the long drives through various craft-villages in between the specified tour-spots(instead of the driver).Otherwise mr.Bene was very friendly and knowledgeable. Once again thanks to Viator for designing the Tour, tracking the tourist and executing the tour with such precision..! -Satishchandra

It was my first time in Bali and I must say that this tour package was indeed worth it. I experienced the most breakthtaking view of the Kintamani Volcano from a restaurant that serves delicious food (all you can eat buffet) at the lowest price one can imagine. The day trip to Ubud was spectacular! The tour guide was very friendly, insightful and knowledgeable and utmost professional and I felt safe travelling with him. I would recommend this tour to all solo travelers planning to visit Bali. This is my 2nd time purchasing a tour package from Viator for two different countries (the other trip was in India back in 2012) and I find viator a reliable tour service provider.

With limited time to spend in Bali, we decided that a tour of the island would be a great way to sample what the island has to offer. Having gotten some advice on "must-sees" from friends who were recently in Bali, we opted for Viator's "Bali Kintamani Volcano, Ubud and Barong Dance Full Day Tour." We stayed in Sanur on the water, and were picked up at our hotel. Our tour guide, Sandy, a Balinese local, was enthusiastic and had a wealth of knowledge about Bali.

Enjoyed the day trip thoroughly! Lake Kintamani was beautiful as was the view of Mt Batur from a distance. The guide, Darta, is refreshingly polite and highly professional. Will definitely recommend friends and family to go on tours with Darta as their guide!

This tour was excellent! You get to see the real Bali and all of its wonderful art centers. The Tour guide was very informative, and extremely helpful and polite. This was a real cultural trip, and you get to learn about the many talents and crafts of the people. The only downside was the restaurant at Kintamani, there were many flies which was a bit off putting and the locals were very persistent trying to sell their goods. However a visit to the restaurant was optional, but a welcome escape from the heat and the hawkers.

We had great time during the tour. Almost missed the opportunity to see Mount Batur as it was raining heavily went we travelled up to Kintamani, but our experienced tour guide Beny knew exactly that we need to immediately stop and take as many as photos before thick fog hide everything. Had fun throughout the day.

We had a good tour. The best part of the tour was Kintamani Volcano. The Volcano is dead, so dont expect any lava, but clouds, lake and Batur mountain was cool. Both guide and driver were good. We had a good private tour. Includes: Gold and Silver Work, Wooden work, Goa Gajah, coffee and rice farms

The tour guide was very courteous and friendly - from Tour East. We started the tour with the Barong Dance and then made our way through the different craft villages (Batubulan, Cerluk, Mas). I was a little worried that there would be pressure to buy some handicrafts at the various stops but there was little to no pressure. We were only a group of two people so we were in-and-out in 10 mins each time (which meant more time for the rest of the tour). Kintamani was really cool and I would have loved to trek around for a bit but it was really just a quick photo op and then move on. Lunch was a buffet with a great view of the Volcano. In retrospect, we shouldn't have spent that much time eating - food was fine and they have vegetarian options as well. We stopped off at a few temples and spots to view the terraced rice paddies - very cool. The tour actually lasted longer than 8-hours for us and they were really nice to accomodate some our of asks to spend more time in Ubud. Again, suspect because it was just the two of us and we sped through some of the other parts of the tour. I booked a subsequent tour with Tour East - Bali As You Please - $125 USD for 8-hours/vehicle (for 4-6 passengers and comes with tour guide and driver - great deal too if you have more friends!)

Our guide for the trip was lovely, and very informative about Balinese culture. However, we did not stop in Ubud and visited 4 shops/factories in the morning, so that we did not reach Kintamani until the afternoon. As a limited factory tour, it was fine, but as a tour of Bali, it was disappointing.

It was not a very good experience on this trip....The vehicle came to pick us up was in a bad condition....A/c was not working properly....Though our guide and driver were very good....but the trip didn't include the better views of Kintamani volcano which was the highlight of this trip (as mentioned)....And when we confronted with our guide for this, he said that they don't cover it this way and the viator should mention it clearly on their website.....i think that Viator has to do something in this direction for improvising the quality of such expensive tour....
