“We had 5 incredible days with breathtaking views along the inca trail trek. Our guide was very kind and took care of everybody all the time. The cook and the porters did also a great job and made the trip more enjoyable. ”

Tomasz's review for another Bamba tour
“Whole trip was a blast. Definitely a must but be ready for long transfers in a car especially transfer back from Java to Bali.
I would recommend you take your own headlight if you have quality one.
Also ask your guide to leave at least hour or 2 earlier on second volcano and hour earlier on 3rd. Leave yourself plenty of time to go up it will alive you to take breaks and still make to blue flames before people. Leaving early was the best thing we did. All of guide and drivers were very accommodating
Tip #2. Take wasapp numbers from everyone. You might need it if you leave your bag in a car or for other reasons.”
