My partner and I spent 4 days in Bali last week, and the East Bali Bike Tour was one of the highlights of the trip. We did the shorter trip and it was excellent. The riding was easy in the sense that it wasn't a lot of uphill (I think the guide mentioned 40% uphill, 60% downhill). However, note that it was quite steep in a few parts, and my hands got quite a workout clutching the brakes! We started at the base of Mount Agung and ended up at White Sandy Beach. What a perfect route! We passed through villages, jungle, and gorgeous rice paddy fields. Our guide, Wayan was wonderful! He stopped often to tell us about certain plants or to let us take pictures or get water. It was only us and one other couple on the tour, so it was very small and personal, which was nice. We got to pass through tons of everyday villages and see what life in Bali was really like. The people we passed along the way were incredibly friendly, smiling and waving and yelling hello as we passed. We had planned to try to do some sort of culture tour while we were in Amed as well, but after our time with East Bali Bike Tours, we felt like we already had! We loved ending up at the beach as well. Since Amed's beaches are not the nicest, we loved that we still got to have some time at a nice for swimming, white, sandy beach. We had lunch at one of the warungs (included in the price of the trip), and then spent some time at the beach. They said usually they spend about an hour at the beach, before taking the vans back to your accomodation, but they said we were free to stay longer if we wished. We spent an hour or two playing in the ocean, laying on the lounges in front of the warung we ate at, and wandering the shops and warungs along the beach. There are a few little shops selling sarongs, dresses, jewelry, and other trickets, but the shop owners are not pushy at all. There are also a few ladies offering massages on the beach as well.
I would highly reccomend East Bali Bike Tours! What a great way to see the country side and have some time at a lovely East Bali beach!
