    The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud is simply breathtaking! Home to wild macaques in a lush tropical forest, it offers a unique and awe-inspiring experience. However, be mindful of your belongings as the curious monkeys may take them. Overall, a fantastic and unforgettable visit!

    Good service and had a nice morning with them. Unfortunately no sunrise view from Mount Batu but that's not their fault! Getting up at 1am was maybe a little too early - it could have been 1 hour later. Staff were great and the drive was safe. I recommend this tour company.

    Wow - this two day experience is without a doubt one of the best things I’ve ever done. Without giving too much away, from start to finish Alex takes you on a journey of self discovery. Pushing your boundaries in a way where you feel cared for and utterly safe. He is a master facilitator managing to have the perfect balance of insightful wisdom, knowledge, teaching, humour and silliness. He is inspiring.

    Set in Alex’s home against a stunning backdrop of lush green rice paddy fields you feel instantly at home. The day runs smoothly from start to finish, and you’re even treated to a delicious and nutritious lunch.

    Creating a safe space for genuine connection to flourish, this experience will leave you invigorated, loved, connected to those around you, overwhelmed at what you’ve achieved, grateful and excited to put your new learnings into practice.

    What is equally impressive is the aftercare Alex provides. He puts genuine effort into your integration and helps support you after the retreat is over.

    This is a tremendously worthwhile experience. If you have a calling to come here I’d prioritise it at all lengths. It really does leave your body cold and your heart warm. 10/10 recommend. Thanks Alex and Tim! 💕🥰 🥶

    What an amazing experience. Hands down one of the best experiences I had in Ubud. I did the light sound visual with Timo and it was an amazing experience. Timo provided a great briefing process on the journey with his zen like presence. One of the best tips I can give anyone is prepare yourself for the experience. Read their briefing email, go on a light stomach or fast, go in with an open mind and open heart, and reduce any limiting energy or distractions before entering the place (don't socialise with others too much).

    Highlight recommend to anyone who wants a next level sound and visual experience!

    Our guides Wayan and Made were friendly, attentive, and helpful. They also doubled as our photographers and videographers (it’s tough being a guide these days), helping us to capture the magical moment of sunrise and friendship. We were given the choice of doing the lesser used trail to go up to Mt. Batur so that we could enjoy the serenity of hiking in the darkness and enjoy stargazing. On the way down, we also did the lesser used rim trek, allowing us to see the remnants of several volcanic eruptions. The only downside of this way down was all the flies (not their fault and probably the same no matter which way down). Thanks again Wayan and Made for making our trek so memorable!

    Maureen is kind, warm and incredibly accurate.
    I had a bioenergetic analysis with Maureen, and she was spot on. I have been struggling in my life for a little while - no sense of direction, feeling really low. WOWSERS - I have left with clear direction and a sense of purpose. I had my analysis about 4 days ago, and every single day since has been better than the last!
    Maureen helped me shift whatever was holding me back, and now I am living with a renewed sense of purpose! Everything she said has resonated with me, and I am finally movign forward again.
    My only regret is that I didn't see her earlier in my trip!
    I will definitely be coming back to see Maureen!

    A fantastic activity, so well organised with friendly and informative guides. Good equipment, free water, they kept an eye on us all and stopped traffic for us to cross at junctions.
    We learnt so much about Balinese culture, rice growing and the visit to the typical Balinese house was fascinating. We finished up with a delicious lunch (plenty of choice) and cold facecloths to freshen up when we got back. It’s a must-do activity!

    We decided to do the camping under Mount Batur to start the morning trekk.it was definitely a night/day to remember. We camped at the starting point of the trekk. Tents were already laid out for us with sleeping bags and mats inside. We enjoyed a dinner in front of the fireplace and we went to bed under the most beautiful sky with stars. At 3am we were awaken to have some coffee and start the trekk uphill. The view of the sunrise at the top of the volcano was amazing. They gave us a boiled egg and banana sandwich at the top for breakfast. We walked a little bit further up top to appreciate the hot steams after the sun had risen. After that we came back down and were driven to the hot springs to spend an hour in a “resort like” facility with stunning view to the lake. We skipped the coffee plantation included in the tour as we had already tried the luwak variety. Driver took us to have lunch and then to hotel.

    We had no idea how phenomenal this experience would be. Definitely incredible memories for a lifetime. Our guide Ben and assistant Made were amazing. We negotiated an amazing price through Whatsapp and were blown away by the quality of the meals (including both breakfast and lunch), the transportation and the incredible mostly downhill adventure. We got to see Bali life up close and personal as much of the trip was through rice fields, home steads, stonemasons at work, past schools and so much more. Cannot recommend this experience enough. As long as you can ride a bike you will love it. The e-bike addition means you exert very little energy. Pls don’t miss this. Promise you will love it.

    We did the Mt Batur sunset hike, coffee plantation tour and waterfalls.
    Tour was amazing from start to finish. Our driver picked us up from our hotel, clean van and friendly service. We had two lovely young women guide us on the trek - they were amazing. When some of our crew couldn’t make it the whole way, one tour guide led them back to the motorbikes so that they could get a ride up as far as they could go. The other tour guide continue to lead rest of us up. They made sure that we were safe and stable the entire way, encouraging when we thought it was too much. The views from the top were amazing and worth every bit.
    The coffee plantation was very interesting and again, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Samples of teas and coffees were great.
    Trip to waterfall was beautiful and a great way to finish the morning off with a refreshing swim.
    Would definitely recommend this company, particularly for the Mt Batur sunrise trek.

    Also this year we ask Wirta Pande for a daily tour. Last year his cousin Made has shown us the West Side and the middle of Bali, this year the South coast. We were very sadisfied for each tour. We have seen a lot of interesting things, and learnt a lot of the Bali culture, thanks to Made.

    We had one day to go in Ubud and tried to go on one of the cycle tours with Bagi and all that was running was a rice paddy walk with another couple. We signed up for it and had a great time - Bagi and driver picked us up on time, took us via a cafe for an included breakfast (with coffee) and then on to the walk through various rural settlements and fields ending up at Bagi's place for a delicious lunch. Bagi provides fresh water and we had a taste of fresh palm wine.

    Bagi is an excellent guide.

    We learnt a lot throughout the walk - probably more than if we had simply cycled, and really enjoyed the experience - being well away from traffic and going to areas that you could not go on your own - a real highlight of Ubud for us.

    Make sure you bring sun protection - a broad brimmed hat, long sleeves etc. as parts of the walk are exposed and if you want to enter any of the Hindu temples, bring a sarong.
