Owner description: Welcome to Bali Bintang Tour, Bali’s Premier Cycling and Adventure Tour Company. Balinese owned and operated, we are excited to continue expanding from Cycling tours or bike tours to Volcano Trekking, Rafting and Special Interest tours while offering impeccable service with integrity, safety and of course FUN for everyone!If you’re reading this right now, it means that you’re looking for a fun and exciting way to see the Bali off the beaten tourist path. You know that there is more to experiencing Bali than just the crowds and tour busses, hanging at the bars in Kuta, or the head spinning shopping frenzy… and yet you haven’t figured out exactly where to go to get the insider’s peek at rural village life and the beautiful backdrop of Bali’s countryside. Biking and Trekking in Bali is one of the BEST and most UNFORGETTABLE ways to explore the people, the land and the Balinese way of life.

Biking can not be easier. Driven to the top of Mt K, starting with coffee and banana fritters then spend the next few hours gliding down the gentle slopes, off the main roads mostly. Most of the trip on back streets through real Bali. Past rice fields, stopping at a local school, stopping at an authentic carvers home. Stopping for a short description of the local village and temples (we were with teenagers so they didn't want the long version). Ending in Ubud, we then went on to walk around the Monkey forest and home via a silver shop and coffee plantation. all options provided by our driver. An excellent day out.

What a wonderful way to see the "real" Bali. Riding past working fields, stopping and chatting to villagers who were working away at their craft, having the pleasure of going inside a traditional home all finished off with a wonderful lunch at the end. Thank you to our guide Pony and his side kick for looking after us. We had a group of 7 ranging in age from 10 to 43 and we all managed the ride easily. The guides engaged with the youngest wonderfully. What a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

My son Patrick and I (Australia) went on the cycling tour today and had a magnificent experience. Our guide was both friendly and knowledgable, the equipment was in good condition, the journey was very scenic travelling through villages and rice paddies both beautiful and diverse, the rest points were unique and gave a deep insight into Bali way of life and finally the food was delicious.

Did this tour when I was in Bali in January 2013. Got picked up at 7:45 am in the morning. Booking via email from India was seamless. Stopped at a coffee plantation in between. Reached the starting point where one get small refreshments and you get to choose your bikes. After seat adjustment etc, on our way. Guide was friendly and I dont remember his name. Most of the ride is downhill. There are i think 3 stretches where it is uphill but the guide tells you what gear to put on and it is manageable. Else you may get in the AC van that follows. At the end there is a set lunch which is delicious.

An experience not to be missed. If I go to Bali, I will do it again and this time it will be a full day trip.
