This trip was privately arranged for a group of 8 during a recent cruise with a stop in Bali (We were part of the group that Larlmonkey reviewed below). This was a spectacular day and overall one of the best days of our 14 night cruise. Our group was small, even so, we had 2 people during driving time (Yoga the owner and one other), and while cycling we had 3 guides as well as a van operator driving behind us.
Our group was picked up at the cruise pier right on schedule and transported by van, Yoga greeted us and gave us commentary on the local aspects of life and all the sights we saw along the ride. Our first stop was a coffee plantation to try all the different coffee and tea, then we drove up to a mountain for photos (about 15 minutes from the coffee plantation). After taking pictures we were brought back down the mountain a little to meet our bikes and tour guides.
Once on our bikes we had about a 1 1/2 hour to 2 hour ride mostly downhill on roads through villages and rice fields. The roads weren't overly busy, and even though I am generally very uncomfortable biking (ie. not very good at it!) I had a great time!! Yoga is a great guide and will stop at any point you want to explain what you are seeing or let you take pictures.
After our bike ride we received ice cold towels to cool down with, and were back in the van to go to Yoga's home for lunch. His home is absolutely beautiful and you receive commentary about the homes and the Balinese way of life. Lunch is a DELICIOUS buffet cooked by Yoga's wife, every single one of us went back for seconds... and thirds :-)
Even though we would have loved a little more biking time, we all agreed that this was a fantastic trip, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to others!!
