About us

With over 10 years of experience Bali Quad Discovery Tours is one of the few adventure pioneers in Bali. High standard in every aspect of our programs is our main priority, and our proofed formula of combining great sightseeing tours with a lot of fun without compromising in safety has provided us with many trustful business partners and clients.

Our goal: Showing the people who come to Bali a wonderful and authentic part of the island in a highly adventurous way.

Our history: In 1999 the dutch enterpriser Peter Janssen and founder of Pt. Bali Quad Discovery Tours first opened the Bali Quad Discovery tour in Budakeling, Karangasem because this was probably one of the most un touched parts of the island. Despite being far away from the main tourist resorts in the south of the island the Bali Quad Discovery Tour gained a lot of popularity among tourists from many countries. The combination of getting to know the hidden parts of Bali with the excitement of driving a powerful four wheeler showed to be successful.

On 12 October 2002 tragedy struck the island when a devastating bomb exploded in Kuta, leaving over 200 people dead and many more injured. Tourism to the island of Bali came to a stop. All companies in the tourist sector suffered and also Bali Quad Discovery Tours had to close temporary because of a lack of guests.

After almost 1 year, in December 2003 Bali Quad Discovery Tours restarted its activities but opened its adventure doors at a different, more strategically located, but at the same time so pure place, in Payangan area. There, until today, it keeps offering the tourists that come to Bali a wonderful memory by bringing the guests to a place where other people don’t go.

Development of other activities Besides the famous Bali quad and since 2005 the Bali Buggy tours we later (2010) also created the Bali Canyon Tubing Adventure in the same area, where the guests can explore a wonderful part of Balinese jungle by floating their own device through a crystal clear stream, that originates from a spring just less than a kilometer up north from he Bali Quad starting point. Now the guests can combine these tours to a full day of activities in one and the same place and obtain a truly memorable Balinese experience.

Equipment In order to maintain a leading position amongst all tour providers in Bali we constantly invest in upgrading our equipment and staff knowledge. For example our atv fleet has recently (June 2011) been upgraded with high quality branded vehicles as Yamaha Grizzly 350 and Kawasaki Prairie 360 (see pictures). Our off road tracks have been expanded until we now have over 25km that we can use for our tours.

For our canyon tubing adventure we use the famous American JOBE brand for our whole tubing equipment, like helmets, life vests and boats. Our staff receives SOS first aid training course and hospitality training on a regular base.

Our philosophy is very simple: make sure that the guest gets what he / she pays for, because what satisfies the customer is the value for money, not the discount!
