This tour is perfect for those who want to experience the best of Bali, including its traditional culture, natural beauty, and volcanic landscape.
We will pick you up from your accommodation and drive a coffee plantation for a coffee hit then to the Penglipuran Traditional Village, a well-preserved village that showcases Balinese culture and architecture. You will have an hour or so to explore the village, visit the temple, and purchase souvenirs.
Next, we will head to the Bamboo Forest, which is located just a short walk from Penglipuran Village. You will be able to walk a paved walkway through the forest and admire the towering bamboo trees.

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 gift set of Bamboo Straws. You know why? We do this more for practical and educational reasons. Plastic is a mammoth problem here in Bali, with plastic straws playing a huge part in this problem. We created a memento you can keep and take with you back to your home country. This ideal gift set comes with a box, a draw string bag, three laser engraved with the Expedition Bali logo bamboo straws, and a straw cleaner. Light weight, easy to travel with, and you’ll be able to educate your friends when you get back home.
2. We also take you to the Kintamani bats that live out in the open on a cliff face and under a ledge. No other tour company does this.

Must do while in Bali >>>
“This is one of the activities that should be a must on your list if you're visiting Bali. The company offers a few different trips, you can always find something that fits you. In general, the staff is super nice and helpful, as well as knowledgeable on the area. The off-road truck is really fun, the views are spectacular, what a great time!! I recommend!” – solution95 – New York City, New York
“… One of the best tours that we went on when we were in Bali. All the staff were so lovely and friendly. From our pickup from the hotel … we enjoyed every minute. The guides were informative and positive and with stories to tell about the volcano and the surrounding villages. There was never a dull moment! We will definitely be back to do the morning tour.” – Sophia T
We know that plans change. If you cancel any of our Bali tours with more than 24 hours notice, we'll issue a full 100% refund. That's it, nothing fancy.
If your booking is cancelled due to Covid-19 announced by the Indonesian government, we'll refund 100% of your money, as we have for literally hundreds of pre-booked tours in February 2020. We'll put this under "Force Majeure" which is a fancy way of saying "unforeseeable circumstances that prevent someone from fulfilling a contract".
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: 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: Does Expedition Bali Tours have insurance?
A: Great question. Yes we do. We have Public Liability Insurance that encompasses limited Customer & Guest Effects, limited First Aid Facilities, and a few more items. However, this is Indonesia, although this is the best insurance we can get, please ensure you have your own travel insurance before booking any of our Bali tours.
Q: How do I know if I will like the tour?
Q: Do I have to be super fit?
A: No, just a bit of walking around.
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. If you really want to take more people than six, get in touch and we'll have a chat about whats possible. We've done it many times before.
Q: How long has Expedition Bali Tours been around for?
A: We’re the oldest established tour operator in Kintamani. We started in 2012.
