We enjoying a first class experience mountain biking with Sobek, near Ubud. Our guide was extremely informative and very generous with his knowledge about the local area, customs, traditions and beliefs. He gauged our abilities early and tailored the route & terrain perfectly to ensure our expectations were met. The scenery was stunning, the route enjoyable but the highlight was... More

This is my second white water rafting experience in Bali. The first was on Ayung River, booked with a random operator. This time I decided to go for the reputable companies and after reading up, decided on Sobek, as it's well known for safety. We chose Telaga Waga River as we wanted something more exciting. True enough, they were professional... More

I booked a rafting trip for two couples on the Ayung River, which is calmer than Telaga Waja, as three of the four of us hadn't ever been rafting before. I was also advised that the Ayung often has a higher water level and there are interesting rock carvings along the bank. Driver picked us up on time, and everyone... More

We booked through sobek, who unfortunately didn't pick us up as arranged. After a few phone calls and 2 hours we were eventually taken to the river. It's quite a walk down to the boat, thankfully not so many stairs coming up. We were given a free photo for our inconvenience. We had a fantastic time, it was so much... More

We have done 2 activities with sobek: rafting and trek in ricefield. Both were very well organised and the staffs were very friendly. If you are looking for some fun activities, Sobek will be the perfect choice.
