The tour was incredibly beautiful and I am still so happy that I booked the tour via Baliyok. The day was one of my best on Bali and I've been travelling for over 5 weeks now. Through Justin and Anto I learned more about Bali, life and people in one day than I did the weeks before. Many thanks for that. Only today I could pass on insider knowledge. The tour was super organized and we started at 3am, direction Caldera Mount Batur. The ascent was exhausting but completely feasible (I am untrained and a smoker) and we were already up at 5:30 a.m.. Just in time for sunrise we had coffee and breakfast and then this incredible view!! But the best: there were only two of us and we had felt the mountain for ourselves. After the descent we went by boat to the village "Terunyan". Who is interested in the original Bali, should visit this magic grave place absolutely. In the place I could still talk with local ones (Marti - I come again in 2 years and then I am happy if you teach me Indonesian) and afterwards it went to relax to the hot springs. The day was perfect all around and I can fully recommend the tour. I would book it again as well! Thank you Justin, for this great day.

Me and a few friends had the opportunity to do the Caldera Batur Volcano sunrise trekking tour with Bali Yok! and it was an absolutely incredible experience. We had three locals accompany us on our trek and they made the whole trip comfortable each step of the way. Along the journey we were given insight into the surrounding nature, land and culture too! One of the best parts about our tour was that it was off the beaten track and way less touristy than doing the popular Mount Batur volcano climb. At the top of the mountain, there were only 10 other climbers. It made the whole experience more intimate and unique. While we were witnessing the magical sunrise, we were offered delicious tea and coffee, with sandwiches and other snacks.
Our guides were the perfect mix of professional and fun and made the tour such an easygoing and pleasant experience. Anytime we grabbed our phones to take a photo, they offered to take it for us so we could enjoy the view.
What I also really loved about the trek was that we got to climb up from one side but then decend from another track so we could experience a whole other view of the mountain. To top off our amazing hike, we then ventured back to our starting place by boat which was the perfect way to end the journey.
I can’t recommend Bali Yok! enough. If you’re looking for a unique experience that is different to the typical tourist attraction, you’re in for an amazing adventure. Thank you Justin for organising everything - can’t wait to do another tour :)

The whole day was just amazing thank you so much guys!!!

I went on a waterfall tour with Justin and went to a local village nearby. The waterfalls were absolutely beautiful, some of the best I’ve seen, and much less touristy than most in Bali. You can swim in the waterfalls so be sure to bring your swimmers. I had a home cooked meal in the local village and got to meet some of Justin’s friends. Justin is very knowledgeable and reliable, he can teach you about Indonesian culture and traditions. He is very easy going and funny. This is one of the best tours in Bali for a local and AUTHENTIC experience! You also don’t have to worry about being overcharged or scams. Thankyou for the great memories Justin, I will be back!

We went to do the Batur sunrise treck with Justin. I really recommend you to go there with Baliyok. He is really friendly and positive and him and Denis (local guide) will share their knowledge about their culture and country. Thank you again for everything.
