Bali's Highlands and Terraces

An authentic performance of the Barong Dance and a visit to the 'Elephant Cave' sanctuary sets a mystical tone for this Bali tour. Afterward, your professional guide will escort you to taste the famous Luwak coffee before reaching the breathtaking terrace views offered at Kintamani.

The mystical Barong is a lion-like creature who fights evil spirits led by Rangda. Colorfully dressed native dancers reenact and narrate Bali's ancient history. Following this festivity, you'll reach the elaborate stone carvings displayed at the "Elephant Cave."

While the main carving here is thought to resemble an elephant, many frightening creatures are carved into the facade of the cave to scare off evil spirits. Inside, you'll see the placid bathing pools that served members of the temple since the 14th century.

With your group's positive spirits flowing, you'll enjoy a traditional Balinese lunch, then sample some of the world's most costly coffee. Because production is aided by a portion of the beans coming from the Asian palm civet's digestive tract, Coffee Luwak sells at an astounding $350 US per pound.

Once recharged, you'll journey to the stunning terraces in the Kintamani village. The placid lakes and serene rice fields produce a blissful scene that seems to only improve when seen from the nearby, less-frequented Tegalalang Rice Terraces.

This enjoyable cultural trek is fit for the entire family. The relaxation and chance to taste the Coffee Luwak should not be missed. Book this Bali tour now for an incredible Indonesia experience at a low price.

Please Note: A tourist visa is required to debark in Indonesia. Cruise lines do not usually provide this visa, therefore, you will need to obtain one prior to your cruise.

thoroughly enjoyed our experiences with the whole excursion. We didn,t realise that we would be by ourselves in a private dormobile with our own driver and tour guide. We felt very special. They took us to quite a few places and the guide was very knowlegable. Would definitely do it again sometime

We drove to the highlands with several interesting stops; gardens, crafts, performance. Lunch was at a restaurant overlooking a valley and mountains, very good buffet meal.

Lovely time in Bali

We had a wonderful day in Bali with our local guide, who was very informative and driver, who managed the Bali traffic calmly and expertly. This was our first experience in non-cruiseship excursions and we were very pleased. We saw some beautiful temples and countryside, plus we were able to customize what we wanted to see and do. First rate!

Seeing Bali
January 08, 2018
I cannot say enough about this tour. We were greeted at the cruise terminal by our guide Sudi. He spoke English very well as did the driver. We spent over 8 hours exploding Balinese culture and traditions. We visited during a holy season and witnessed many village parades honoring ancestors. We made several retail stops but also spent over an hour visiting a temple. Sudi provided insight into the Hindu religion and beliefs. We next visited a volcano area. It was easy to spot the different layers of ash representing eruptions. Unexpectedly, our tour included lunch at a mountain top restaurant. One of the best tours I have ever taken.

Bali Highlands Tour
February 16, 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. The driver was very safe and the guide friendly and very knowledgeable. What was included was great too, the music an dance (Balinese opera ?), a stop at a coffee plantation, a delicious authentic Indonesian buffet up near 2 active volcanoes, an interesting stop at a temple complex, and then a decent indoor market with plenty of quality souvenirs , and getting us back to the pier in plenty of time. We passed rice fields but did not stop as the three of us were very familiar already (and one had been forced to be a rice farmer in China during her growing up years. )
