Following pick-up from your hotel at 07:00, journey to a coffee plantation in the lush landscapes of Bali and learn how the local kopi luwak is produced. Known for its high price due to the unusual method of using beans digested by the Indonesian civet (a cat-like mammal), the result is often referred to as "cat poop coffee."

Then, head to the start point of your trek at approximately 10:30. Walk down a small path with hundreds of steps and get stunning views of the lush green jungle surroundings. Admire a waterfall in the distance as it falls through the dense forest in 6 cascades. Walk up to the waterfall to see the fresh water tumbling from heights of 260 feet (80 meters). Then, recharge over lunch at a local restaurant at the end of your trek. Continue to Ulun Danu Temple (Pura Ulun Danu Beratan) to see the reflections of the sacred Hindu monument, dedicated to Shiva, shimmering in the waters of Lake Beratan.

Absolutely to recommend! It was an unforgettable experience for us. We were picked up in Ubud at 3:30 am and arrived after a two-hour drive. Then we went straight to the boat so as not to miss the sunrise. With us there were about 20-30 other boats looking for dolphins, but that doesn't bother us, because the dolphins keep changing their route and you sometimes have them all to yourself. Snorkeling costs extra (everywhere), but it's all worth the money (200k IDR ~ 13-14€ for us). Sometimes it is very exhausting, but we saw up to 25 dolphins underwater at the same time. That was a real experience! The waterfall is a nice stopover, but not a highlight for us since there are so many in Bali. The temple is super beautiful and definitely worth seeing! All in all a really worthwhile tour :) We were back at our hotel around 12:30-1:00 p.m. Thank you Benny and we would definitely do it again!

Overall a fantastic trip. We saw hundreds of dolphins. The tour guide made sure we got the front seats of the boat. He went out of his way to make sure we had an excellent day. Told us lots of information. He went above and beyond with taking photos. He took us to a lovely buffet lunch and even added a trip to the coffee plantation at our request. We have since organised more trips with our guide from this booking.

We were on a Dolphin tour with Pande on 9/11/2022 . It was a real great experience. He is so kind and has a lot of interesting things to tell. + He made some great photos for us at the temple. If we would be in Ubud longer we would have definitely booked another tour with him. 5 stars!!!

We had an incredible time with Rindu Adventures! Highly recommend them for fellow thrill seekers. From the transport, breakfast with a stunning view, AMAZING guides and then a delicious lunch, every part of our experience was fantastic. Plan to be back in 2023.

Super good! Recommended. We didn't get to swim with the dolphins, so I think you have to find out from Hvirdan how you can do it in advance. Some other boats that did it...Otherwise absolutely great!
