We read about Mr Yoga and Halo Bike on Trip Advisor, so the first thing we did when we reached Bali was to call Mr Yoga and book the tour.Next morning he picked us up from our hotel in Ubud at around 8:30. In his pickup car, what was really nice was that our group size was only 5 - unlike some of the other cycle tours in Ubud and bali.
We saw Coffee plantation and tasted different types of Bali tea and coffee , we also enjoyed some local fruits there...Mr Yoga was very knowlegable he explained to us different type of Bali Coffee and how the famous Luwak coffee of Bali is made....
After this we went to Kintamani and had lovely breakfast overlooking the lake and the Volcano..we were already satisfied with the tour but the best part was yet to begin..after a short drive we reached our bikes and then the real fun began...we cycled through beautiful landscape of rice fields...We stopped as and when we pleased and took some stunning pictures on the way. We also saw locals working in rice fields from close quarters.Mr Yoga gave us a running commentary and introduced Bali to us in real sense. From rituals, ceremonies, day-to-day functioning of village to how the farmer union decides which crop to grow and at what time and so on...
After our ride, Mr Yoga took us to his home.It was a privilege to see his house ,eat delicious balinese lunch prepared by his wife and spend some time with his family.
This was easily the higlight of our Bali trip..we highly recoomend this tour.
Thanks a lot Yoga and team.
