We booked this tour from a tour booth on the street for 350,000 rupiahs per person. The advertised price was for 400,000.

The day started with a brief stop at the rice paddy fields which is always a bucket list item for tourists. Following this we went to a coffee plantation. The guide here was so lovely and we got to try out around 20 teas and coffees which was awesome - great addition to the tour.

After this you stop for pancakes / omelette at a local restaurant which has spectacular views of the volcanoes. The pancakes were not amazing but were an added bonus!

Then it was time for riding! We enjoyed this bike tour. While it was 90% all down hill it was great to be outside and amongst the locals. The tour is well organised and there is a van that follows the bikes.

The highlight of the tour for me was the tour guide - Stone. His insight into Balinese lifestyle, religion, schooling and rice fields were very insightful. He was very professional yet funny, fantastic guide.

The tour ended with lunch at family’s home and entertainment. It was nice to see what the local home is like.

This is a local family business and while it was mostly down hill we did enjoy this day.

With 'breakfast included' you expect to have breakfast at the start of the day. Before that we stopped twice; one time at the ricefields and after that at a place where they make Luwak coffee (made from the poo of civet cats). We left the tour quickly after we saw how the animals that produce the coffee beans were kept; nothing less than animal abuse.
After 2-2,5 hours we had 'breakfast'. Great view, but don't be fooled; this is not breakfast (just a pancake that had no flavour to it) and coffee that was disgusting. Then the real tour started. The bikes were old and worn down. The gears didn't work properly and the saddles were loose. The tour wasn't a mountainbike tour at all, as it was nothing more than rolling down the hill while constantly braking. We drove on asphalt during the whole tour. We didn't go offroad at all! Something you'd expect when mountainbiking.

Something positive? Yes, the view of the ricefields was nice, and the guide talked about the Balinese way of living. The lunch was allright.

Dear Mr/s. Matthijsgr,

Thank you very much for your review with our company.
But we are realy sorry about you got old bike and drove on asphalt becouse our stok bike was finish and we rent the bike at other place maybe you got it but usully we bring as well spare bikes and you should tell to the guide about it.
For the off rood track you should booking for private tour is the best way for nexts your holiday.
But we are really sorry about it and we whould like to better servis quality from our team nexts.
By the way take care your self and have a nice time.

Very helpful, professional. You’ll see other attractions long the way such as rice fields, car wing workshop and a coffee plantation.
