We did this trip with 3 families. Our children ranged in age from 8-17. The ride was easy for everyone, with the majority of the ride downhill. We stopped in at a school & a traditional Balinese family home. The food provided was excellent and our guides knowledge was also top class. Everyone enjoyed the day and we would recommend it to anyone staying in Bali.

We took this tour not even a week ago in December 2019 (although that is now last year!) and we had such an amazing time. We are a family of five - 2 adults and 3 kids aged 17, 10 and 7 and were travelling with another family of five, with kids aged 17, 13 and 10. We were picked up from our acommodation at 8.30am and driven firstly to a place to sample some different coffee’s. As we had already done this down near Jimbaran, we mostly ordered the coffees by the cup that we had already discovered that we liked, before jumping back in the bus and being greeted by our guide Ming! Oh my gosh, I have nothing but praise for Ming. This guy is full of energy, informative, and fantastic with the kids. The three older kids liked giving him a run for his money, but he was extremely good with them. But he was amazing with my youngest son, aged 7. We headed up to Mount Kintamani, where we had a brunch or rice pancakes, banana fritters and fruit, along with tea and coffee. The view from this cafe was breath taking, and the cooler air, whilst not cold, was a welcome relief from the humid air near the coast. After brunch, it was time to jump on the bikes. As others have said in their reviews, the bikes are not the best. Some have very little tread or the seats are in need of repair, but they didn’t feel unsafe at any time. Elijah, our 7 year old, rode ‘dinky’ on the back with Ming. Ming called him ‘the Boss’ or ‘prince’, and after initial hesitation, Elijah loved it! Ming was always up near the front, and we had another learner guide at the rear, along with the support van. The ride is all downhill mostly, like most people say in their reviews. I rarely touched the pedals...it was all brake. We rode through small villages and rice fields, high fiving kids as we rode. There was a large storm on our tail the whole way, right to the end, but that added to the atmosphere. Along the way we stopped and visited a Balinese family and were able to go inside their house and see how they live. Ming explained the reasons why beds faced a certain way, why rooms were set up the way they were, and we were also able to buy some hand made creations from the children. My 10 year old daughter did come off her bike when some dirt got in her eyes and was scared when she opened her eyes to see another rider so close to her. She had to brake quickly and was soooo close to going over the top of her handlebars. But both guides were very caring towards her and made sure she was ok before we continued. She had a couple of small grazes, but she said afterwards it was more the shock than anything else. There is a support vehicle that follows, so if kids get tired (or anyone for that matter), they can travel in that vehicle until,they feel fine to go back out and cycle again. At the end of the trip, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at their own cafe. It was a three course meal, and my son loved the sates and chicken noodle soup, and he is the hardest one to impress. Ming, you were an amazing guide and your company is vey lucky to have you! We hope to see you again when we are next in Bali! This was our ‘equal first favourite’ tour we did in Bali, and one of the most inexpensive.

We were driven a long way up into the hills of Bali to start our mid morning/luch biking adventure which we were told would be mostly downhill riding. Our tour started with morning tea at a very picturesque restaurant overlooking the volcano's and lake, it was extremely windy up there on that day but it didn't take away from it's beauty. Morning tea was a lovely light sweet treat with a coffee/tea/cold drink. We were all geared up with bike helmets and a bottle of water and we set off with our guide, who was the loveliest person, only young, but spoke English well and was very knowledgeable. It was definitely an easy ride as it was 99% downhill so not much peddling was needed at all which was good as I have bad joints. We stopped a few times along the way to not only take photos etc but also to meet a local family who so very kindly let us into their home. At this stop our guide explained local traditions, beliefs and reasons for setting their homes up the way they do. We also stopped in at a local school and got to meet the children and learn more interesting facts on their schooling etc. There were other stops on our cycling adventure and each time we were given great information on where we were and any history behind it. We finished the trip with a lovely three course traditional meal which was great. Overall I would recommend doing this when you visit Bali.

We went on this ride with our 14 and 17 yr old. We loved the scenery! The ride was almost all down hill. We stopped at a school and a traditional home. We loved seeing and understanding a little more about how the balinese live. Our guide was very informative. An awesome experience.

Any bike ride that starts and end with a meal and is punctuated with a coffee break is already a winner in my book. The fact that the the ride is pretty much downhill through some of the most amazing countryside you will ever see (and I live in NZ!) is the cream on top. The tour was amazing. Of all the things I did in Bali this remains my favourite memory. The guys running the tour are all friendly and very hospitable. The bikes were OK and we all had water to drink on our "arduous" journey downhill. The meal at the start was at a restaurant at the Mt Batur lookout. It was a buffet, but of limited options. That was fine because I hadn't expected it and had already eaten breakfast. The meal at the end of the tour was described in the literature as "sumptuous" and it was certainly that. Very nice. Thinking of doing a bike tour? Don't think. Do it.
