This really is an excellent itinerary for a day tour that takes you through Penglipuran Village for an insight into Balinese culture on the way to Kintamani, stopping at the famous Akasa Coffee Plantation and down to the temple on the edge of Lake Batur.
On the way back you have a couple of interesting options: either head east to Besikah Temple, known as the Mother Temple to the Balinese, before driving back through the incredibly picturesque Sideman countryside.
Or come back just on the eastern side of Ubud stopping at Gunung Kawi and Tirta Empul, two of the most interesting and accessible temples in Bali.
Then you have the option of visiting either Goa Gajah (the Elephant Cave) or Tibumana Waterfall.
Is this a private tour?
Yes – all my tours are with a private car and driver. I have personally vetted all the drivers I work with. They text me when they pick you up and again when you have been dropped off at the end of the day. I also email your driver’s name, profile photo, vehicle photo and phone number beforehand to ensure your safety and provide confidence.
What time does the Kintamai Tour leave?
You can start anytime you like, but I recommend leaving between 7 – 8:00 AM, or even earlier if possible to get a head start on the traffic and ensure you have enough time to hit the stops in the afternoon.
Kintamani Day Tour Map
What is and isn’t included?
The Kintamani Day Tour includes being picked up from your hotel or villa by an English-speaking, trustworthy and knowledgable driver with an immaculately maintained 6-seater air-conditioned SUV. Fuel, applicable taxes and 10 hours allocated time from pick up to drop off are all included.
The seating configuration is 1 in the front passenger seat, 3 in the rear and 2 more in the rear-most fold-down seats. If you prefer more room you can upgrade to a Toyota Innova, which is slightly larger and roomier, and far more comfortable for 5 or 6 passengers.
Not included: Food and beverages or entrance fees.
