Overview:

The Best Qualified Guides

Our guides are local celebrities, everyone knows them because they're the best. They're qualified, certified, and they're English is great.

Custom Built 4x4

Our vehicle is purpose built for comfort, panoramic views, power, protection from the elements, whilst maintaining maximum fun and enjoyment. No other vehicle in Kintamani is purpose built for tourists.

Walking the Crater’s Rim

We’re the only tour company that offers walking around the rim of the crater as a standard part of the tour. It takes an extra hour, however, it’s really worth it. After you’ve seen a sensational sunrise, trek that little bit extra up a little higher to get to the crater rim and walk around here. Your extra efforts will be rewarded with steam coming from the ground, you’ll see the other side of Kintamani with spectacular views of the caldera and farming, plus, if you’re lucky, you get to experience walking through clouds.

Insurance

We have it. This will give you peace of mind knowing you’re covered. You’re covered from the time you leave your hotel, until you return. No other tour operator in Kintamani has insurance.

Sustainable Cities & Communities

United Nations Global Goal number 11. We give $15 from every 4x4 Sunrise Sensation Private Tour guest (every guest) goes to the community. This goes towards local infrastructure including roads, education for farmers on the correct use of the land and more sustainable farming techniques, plus training all the guides in the region, not just our own guides.

Private Tours  

If you book the tour for just you, or you have five more people that are part of your crew, no strangers will be on your tour. We don’t jam others in on the tour to make up the numbers. You’ve booked the tour; the tour is all yours. 1 – 6 people max. We have a hand sanitisers dispenser mounted in the back as well. More importantly, you get to experience this tour with just your intimate group.
If booking through an Online Tour Company such as Trip Advisor, AirBnB or Klook, we can't guarantee your tour will be a private tour. These companies are classed as "One Group" Book directly with us if your tour must be a private tour.

Our Transfer Drivers

Our drivers, are great mates, have passable English, and are nice to our guests. Best of all ‘they wait’. They pick you up from your hotel on time, you do your selected tour, and they wait. They don’t sneak off and do other jobs whilst you’re on your tour with your personal belongings in their vehicle. A bad transfer driver will be sneaking off doing other jobs, and your things could go missing. This will ruin your holiday. (Imagine if you lost your passport, your watch, your anything) Our drivers are 100% tried and tested trustworthy drivers. We pay our drivers to stay for the entire day, whether your tour is one hour, or 10 hours; they wait.

Choosing the DELUXE Option

We take you to Toya Devasya Hot Springs, and we buy you a platinum pass which means nothing in the entire water playground if off limits to you and you get a light lunch. This is a sensational and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED option especially if you have kids. The only thing you'll pay for here is your drinks. Everything else is on us. The platinum level hot springs access, towel, locker, lunch, you will absolutely love this place.

Australian Owned, Local Guides.

Bonus Reasons

2 x Bonus Reasons to book with Expedition Bali Tours

SPOILER ALERT - Once you know everything.......

1. All of our tours have a small unique gift. For example, on this tour we give you a hat with LED’s to light your way. You know why? We do this more for practical reasons. It’s dark when you first set off, because you’re getting to the summit before the sun has risen, and we used to give out rechargeable torches. However, it can also get a bit slippery whilst hiking because loose dirt can shift beneath your feet; losing balance and putting you hand down on a rock to steady yourself isn’t fun if you’re also holding a torch. We wanted to free up your hands. We created a memento you can keep and take with you back to your home country. The hats aren’t cheap, and we've put our logo on the hat to remind you of where you first used the hats. They're yours to keep, and their USB rechargeable.

2. Walking the Crater’s Rim

We’re the only tour company that offers walking around the rim of the crater as a standard part of the tour. It takes an extra hour, however, it’s really worth it. After you’ve seen a sensational sunrise, trek that little bit extra up a little higher to get to the crater rim and walk around here. Your extra efforts will be rewarded with steam coming from the ground, you’ll see the other side of Kintamani with spectacular views of the caldera and farming, plus, if you’re lucky, you get to experience walking through clouds.

Testimonials / References / Endorsements
"My husband and I just came back from our very 1st trip to Bali, and we’re very glad we chose to go with Expedition Bali’s tours and services! Because of them, our 4 day vacation turned out to be smooth, fun, and exciting from start to finish. On their website, you’ll see that they offer numerous tour packages, and they were excellent at coordinating everything, as well as fitting our tour nicely into the rest of our Bali vacation, including pickup/drop-offs from our hotel in Kintamani. I highly recommend reaching out to the company’s director to discuss specific interests you might have or ask them any questions so that they can tailor your tour to fit your exact needs. The team is very approachable and extremely customer centric. It’s clear that they aim to please!
For our 1st day, we decided to do the Sunrise Trekking Tour to the top of Mt. Batur. In addition to being a wonderful hike to the top of the volcano, we experienced one of the prettiest sunrises I’ve ever seen. After a nice morning of hiking around the volcano, they arranged for me and my husband to relax at one of the local hot spring resorts. It was a great way to end the day, winding down at the lake side in the mineral pools with good food and drinks." - Kerry Meyer - US citizen living and working in Singapore.

"Thank you Expedition Bali Tours for this amazing experience! Highly recommended tour with the best vehicle in this area. We felt safe at all times and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Many thanks to Russ and his team for taking care of us!" - Bobby Rheinhart - Indonesian - Makassar

“One of the best Bali mountain & lava Jeep tours, Bali sunrise tour with hot spring water ~ trip advisor recommended, you should try it once in a lifetime” – Wira N. Utama - Indonesian

 

“Super company, excellent guides, everything is organized at the highest level, I really liked the meeting of dawn, and of course how we rode jeeps on the sand and lava of the volcano Batur. Thank you so much guys for organizing such tours….. ” - Russian Guest

 

Mother Nature and her Mum!

“… They [his children] saw first-hand steam rising up from the top of the volcano, they saw the landscape that was left behind by lava being spread all over. Never before had I felt teaching science so fun, my children, my wife and myself had an unforgettable experience, thanks to the crew that took the extra time to answer our questions along the way ...” – Andrew – Perth, Australia

 

Amazing adventure

“The trip was amazing. Team of expedition Bali excellent. The guide was fun and support us all the way. Pictures of the top very beautiful. I like this adventure very much” - Russian Guest

 

Sunrise Hiking Tour

“My boyfriend and I booked the sunrise hiking tour of Mt Batur with Expedition Bali after seeing the reviews and their Instagram (check it out it's awesome!). From the get go Expedition Bali were extremely helpful and professional.
While my boyfriend is very fit and hikes regularly, I am the complete opposite and found it very challenging, however our Jeep driver and hiker Wayan was amazing. Super supportive and considerate and got me to the top when I didn't think I could! The views were amazing. …The 4wd'ing aspect was fun and cut an hour off the hiking trip. Would definitely recommend and we will do more tours with Expedition Bali in the future :)” - Hannah M – Adelaide, Australia.

 

Amazing Tour!

Have just come back from completing this tour in Bali, i did the Sunrise Volcano 4WD Tour and it was absolutely amazing and worth the early wake up. Would highly recommend this tour if your headed to Bali, … – Taryn L

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do we know if your guides are really qualified?

A: All of our volcano tour guides are qualified Mount Batur Trekking Association Guides. We have copies of our guide certifications on record to send anyone at any time.

Q: Why does the website say ages between 4 and 70?

A: All children three and under ride for free. It's considered the parents could use a break in paying for things for their young family, and the kids at that age don't take up much space so they can sit on the lap of the parent. At the other end of the scale, 70 is the maximum our insurance will cover. You can go on any tour you like over the age of 70, however, to be extremely clear, we don't have insurance to cover you if you're over 70 years of age, you'll have to have your own travel insurance.

Q: Can you arrange a pickup from our hotel?

A: Yes. We have bunch of great mates that all belong to one team. Their English is passable, they must all have currently registered vehicles and current drivers licences for our insurance to be effective. We keep copies on record of each driver, with expiry dates noted in our calendar with a 14 day reminder set up on each.

Q: How do I know if I will like the tour?

A: That’s easy, check our Google / Trip Advisor reviews. We also won the Luxury Tour Guide Global Award for service in 2021 / 2022 above every other tour operator in every category in Indonesia. 

Q: What is the difference between the "Standard" & "Deluxe" Tours

A: Great question. A standard tour is everything listed above. EVERYTHING. The deluxe tour is where we simply add on the 5 Star Hot Spring Experience.

Q: I don’t know if I should pick the DELUXE option. Is it really worth it?

A: OMG Yes. Do yourself a huge favour and pick this option after a 4x4 Sunrise Sensation Private Tour, a 4x4 Volcano Explorer Private Tour, or Terunyan Wall Private Boat Tour. You can thank us later for telling you to take this option. We’ve had people do our DELUXE tour, and go to the hot springs, only to stay the night in the area so they can go to the hot springs again for the whole day the next day. You can feel the minerals in the water as you relax away those tired muscles and order yourself a Pina Colada or Bintang from the bar without getting out of the pool. This place has been described as “Heaven on a stick”- Book this option to make this the best tour you’ve ever been on. The only thing you'll be paying for here is your drinks.

Q: Seriously, getting up at some ungodly hour of the morning to be at your meeting point in Kintamani near the volcano for 4.00am; is it really worth it, be honest?

AYes, it’s really is worth it. Check out the testimonials.

Q: Do I have to be super fit?

A: On our 4x4 Sunrise Sensation Private Tour, a moderate level of fitness is required if you want to see a sensational sunrise and possibly trek around the rim of the crater 

Q: Can I book on this particular date, a bit later?

A: All of Expedition Bali Tours are private tours. We run one tour a day of each tour. Best you pick the date and time you want now, and lock that in to avoid disappointment. It's easy to see if the dates are already booked, if you see a yellow dot on or close to your date, the tour is booked. Sorry.

 

Q: There are 10 of us, can we all go?

A: We take a maximum of six adults on this tour. We can organise an extra car, however it wont be our car. Some may be disappointed they are not in our car, so we don't often do this.

Q: How long has Expedition Bali Tours been around for?

A: We’re the oldest established tour operator in Kintamani. We started in 2012.
