Owner description: Fabulous Bali cycling and riding and tour experience, with our mountain bikes to enjoy the whole heart of Bali in a glimpse ! a must have memory for every tourist. Lovely cycling experience. Working out on the 3 uphill climbs and you wll now well gravity worrks. The best genuine experience of our entire balinese culture at a glimpse by riding 95% only through wonderful landscape of ubud and ancient balinese way ancient of life.

The bike tour was awesome! We were only two and had plenty of time to explore rice terraces, Mount Batur, Ubud's surroundings etc. The guide was really patient, paid attention to our needs (pictures, confort, etc.), and took time to give us explanations about geology, balinese culture and religion. This was a very good experience, and enabled us to discover Bali from another point of view. The bikes and the car were in excellent condition, and the meals (breakfast and lunch) delicious.

I recommend this tour to everyone!!!

While in Bali, we booked a bike ride on the last day, the weather was amazing as it was drizzling and cloudy. We booked the ride via our hotel - melia benoa.

The driver picked us up around 7 in the morning and drove us to the top of the inactive volcano where we had tea and pancakes and then took us to the start point. We shared the van with a couple who were extremely friendly. The bikes were equipped with brakes, cloves, head gear and water. We drove down the slopes waving at residents, stopping for pictures and water breaks. There was one location where we had to pick up our bikes and walk between a steep hill on one side and the river on the other. The hill was lush green (in ubad) with cottages peeking at us and flowers all around. Young couples romancing in the corners of the lushgreen and then we rode through the narrow path. Very scary but looked like a piece from heaven. Wish i had my camera to capture the moment.

A must must do! We were accompanied by the experienced bikers (tour guides) all throughout and we ended up at a local rest for lunch which was part of the package.

All in all, the early morning, the ride through the rain, every bit of it is worth it. I will definitely do this again. Keep a camera around your neck at all times!!

I can't ride a bike, so when my friends' arranged this they got a tandem for me. I went from thinking bike tours were impossible for me to having the most memorable day out in a picture perfect landscape. All this thanks to Dewa Bob and Dewa Swam. And an extra special appreciation to Dewa Bagus, my designated 'driver' on the tandem. And Dewa Bob's wife for the home cooked lunch served in true Balinese style.

The trip was planned in detail, carried out with a lot of responsibility, caring and heart. The lunch at Dewa Bob's traditional house was the icing on an already rewarding day. At every stage, they made sure the cyclists could keep up, checked on the bikes and stopped when needed.

Terima Kasih Dewa Bob & Wife, Dewa Bagus and Dewa Swam

Honestly, for someone who hasn't been riding a bike for at least a decade, it's quite a worry some thing if I could really enjoy the trip as much...

What a sweet surprise the service rendered is simply considerate and heart felt that Dewa Bob and his team took such a wonderful care of us, all 5 of us ladies, only 2 and a half of us can actually ride :)

Not only we had such a fantastic time of our life in the country side around Ubud in one of the most beautiful Island on earth, we also brought home the memories of authentic Balinese home cook cuisine served in abundance that we almost have to get on the bike again to burn that extra calories!

Thank UUUUUUUUUU Dewa Bob and Dewa Swam for making it happen for us!
