This experience was definitely my highlight of my trip to Bali. It was so much better than expected. The staff were very helpful as they safely helped us across the busy roads of Bali, but also extremely friendly and funny too. There's so much more than just cycling as you visit other places and learn so much about the culture. This adventure lasts for the whole day and it's very value for money. The cycling was relatively easy as it was mostly all downhill, and the views you cycle past are beautiful! Would most definitely do it all again!
My favorite part of this bike tour was actually the beginning, where we went to the coffee plantation, visited the rice paddies, and had lunch overlooking Mt. Batur. The rest of the tour was a bit dragged - it was cool to see the backroads of Ubud, but after the 3rd hour, we were basically riding through very similar neighborhoods, i think the ride could do without the water temple stop - not very impressive and we couldn't go to the temple, just look at it from afar. Also, i would suggest they do breakfast first, rather than after the coffee plantation and rice paddies, since we basically ended up eating breakfast at 11:30, then lunch an hour later. Everything else was great - we loved the bamboo forest, and lunch overlooking the mountain was amazing! Ubud is amazing.
The whole experience was amazing! The tour guide was really friendly and the whole trip was organized very well. For picky eaters, just a heads up, both the breakfast and lunch is Balinese cuisine. So expect having Nasi goreng for breakfast facing the amazing view, which I absolutely loved.
The 2 1/2 hour bike tour passed really quick and I wish it was longer, but got to see the beauty of Ubud.
This tour was a great way to see traditional Bali rural life. The bike ride only went for 2.5 hrs which was enough for us as we did most of it in a Bali downpour. Try and pick a sunny day as we had no view of Mt Batur volcano at breakfast which was at 11:30 so it might be a good idea to eat somethIng beforehand. The temple we visited was lovely and the local villagers very welcoming. Highlights were riding through bamboo plantations, rice paddies and small villages.
The day out was great!
We did more than just bike riding, the trip to the coffee place was an added bonus and the brunch and lunch were great too.
The only thing we would have wanted different to the whole day was our driver did not speak much English, would have been great to have commentary as we drove past places etc.
Besides that this day, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas of Bali,was a very nice change and it was great value for money.
We would highly recommend this trip
A very enjoyable trip taking you away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and into the hills giving you an insight into Bali life in the villages. Waving and saying hello to the children was a highlight. It was an easy downhill ride, that you don't need to be fit to be able to do. The guides were very informative and allowed us to stop and make the most of the photo opportunities. Lunch was delicious !!!
One of the best tours I have done in Bali.
