The Mt. Batur Sunrise Hiking was amazing, just like everyone is saying it is. There was ALOT of people hiking up this thing who should not have been there. You, in the keds sneakers and the older woman with the bad knee, not to mention the 28 year old who had a hangover and vomitted after the 1st ascent was reached. These are the people you have to manuver around in the dark of night on a slippery small pebble foot path. You want to reach the summit for the sunrise but you have to go around these numbskulls to reach it in time so your patience might wear thin after the 1st hour or so.
Make sure to pack a warm layer and a windproof layer for the top which can be windy and chilly while waiting for the sun to rise.
Wow. Just fantastic. Our guides Wayan and Ayu were fully focused on making this a special experience and it was. So worth the early start and climb. Breakfast cooked over the steam vents atop Mt Batur and then sharing with the monkey group at sunrise was a real highlight.
I highly recommend using this service if you want to go on a tour of Mt Batur. Our tour guide and driver for the day, Gusti Bawana from Tour Bali Driver made all the arrangements for us, including picking us up from and returning us to our hotel. Not only did they make all the arrangements for us to climb the mountain, but Gusti also drove us to a coffee plantation afterwards and to a temple. He was extremely knowledgeable and a great guide to have along the way.
The climb up Mt Batur itself was amazing. It's a bit of a distance but well worth the view you won't be disappointed. There were even monkeys hanging around as we all made our way back down the mountain so we stopped to take pictures with them and feed them. The next time I visit Bali I intend on using this same tour service and requesting Gusti as my tour guide.

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

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 was a very good tour. The tour guide and driver were very professional. I loved the Barong Dance. The leuwak coffee at the coffee plantation was interesting. The vista view Mount Batur was awesome. However, we did NOT stop in Ubud as the tour said we would. This was very disappointing as myself and the other 3 in the van choose this tour especially to see Ubud. Not likely I will get back to Bali to do so. Very disappointing.
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
