Rio was an absolute pleasure to be around. I put "Other" because really he was just around for the week we were there. He was happy to take us wherever we wanted to go, recommend things to do. Nothing was too much trouble. His english is excellent and his knowledge of Bali was unbelievable. He even allowed me to stay at his place when I was passing back through and just needed to stay a single night. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I’ve been using Rio’s services for years and wouldn’t consider using any other driver. He will collect you from the airport and deliver you safely to your hotel. Rio has a happy and friendly disposition and can be relied upon to provide best prices and the most in-depth information. As a local, Rio is always happy to answer questions and while driving to your destination, provide cultural information with his amazing English. He’s a fantastic source for the best excursions at the best price.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide Uwah was the best! It was our first time to Bali so it was nice to have someone take us to the best spots. The only thing is at the first stop at Bintang Beach Club we opted for the glass bottom boat tour. The boat took us to Turtle Island which was horrible. They claim to rehabilitate turtles and release, but I honestly doubt it. The conditions for the turtles and other animals were awful. Other than that we very much enjoyed visiting some beautiful beaches.

Since traffic in Bali is horrible, unless you are local, we decided to go with Rio for one day to see some sights we had planned. Finally, one day turned to amazing 3 days with Agung Wah, who recommended some great places to see and good restaurants to eat. He was our driver, guide, photographer, friend, everything we needed on our trip! Definitely recommend Agung and Rio tours to everyone visiting Bali.

We left from Ubud, which happened to be where our tour guide, Dewa, is also based, so he knew the area well. The route took us pretty much directly North, to Lovina, and Dewa stopped off at some amazing places along the way. After dinner in Lovina, we slept in the van until the ferry crossing from Gilimanuk, and then a steep drive up a winding road towards Ijen. At Ijen, we found a very cool little base camp, where we sat around a campfire swapping stories and listening to music, and trying Javanese coffee and fried banana, and also purchased some goods from the markets (at very cheap prices compared to Bali) Once Ijen opens at 1am, a local guide, Po, accompanied us up the mountain. A lot of people were finding the climb difficult, but we are experienced hikers and did not find it challenging, having to stop frequently for our guide to catch his breath! The second half of the climb, after the compulsory stop at the mid way cafeteria, becomes a lot steeper, and the smell of sulphur began to affect me, our guide provided us with Gas masks which eliminated the issue, though it does make drawing a breath a bit harder, especially if winded from the climb. Once we hit the crater, we descended towards the blue flame, this part is not, I repeat, IS NOT for people that are not physically fit. It is about 1000 ft, almost vertical descent, down a slippery, rocky path, in the middle of the night, with only torch light to guide your way, while sulphur clouds are stinging your eyes. You must also give way to the miners, who do this daily with up to 90kg on their backs, try to buy their little sulphur carvings if you can, they only cost about 15000rp and it supplements their hard earned income, they only have a life expectancy of 45, not having enough money for gas masks. When you reach the bottom, you are met with the eery blue flamed volcano, 1 of only 2 in the world according to our guide. It is strange, and wonderful, and everyone who sees it goes quiet and is just enchanted for a brief time. You will then have to climb to the crater again, avoiding other groups coming down the narrow tracks, and then wait a couple of hours for the sun to rise so you can see the blue lake. There is only a window of about 4 hours to see the blue flames as the miners will use a pump to enable them to work, and this extinguishes the flames, so you get down there early, but this means you do have to sit around a little before the sun rises - bring snacks and warm clothes, I stayed quite warm throughout the climbing due to physical exertion, but the sitting around definitely made me very chilly. The sun rise is amazing as it lights up the scenery around you, and you look around not realising how beautiful the landscape was that you passed that morning in complete darkness. After tipping Po, we met up with Dewa once more and he dropped us to our next destination in Bali. Overall, this was probably one of my favourite things I have ever done in many trips to Indonesia, and I would recommend to anyone who asks me.
