Chose this tour after learning about it on trip advisor..and was not disappointed. It is a fantastic way to spend the day, great value for money and topped off with the best meal I had the whole time I was in Bali! We were staying in Nusa Dua but were picked up promptly and it was a nice ride to Ubud. The guide Dewa (aka BOB) was so accommodating for any request we made (photo ops/toilet stops/hungry tummy's!) and did everything he could to make it such an enjoyable day for us. The scenery/local villages you pass through are so lovely and a world away from Kuta and all the tourism. Its not really exercise at all, as its mainly downhill so the hardest thing you have to do is keep your brakes on and avoid the bumps in the road! Starting out with the coffee/bfast was a lovely way to sample the different teas/coffees made locally and also to support them by purchasing some to take home...the lunch was divine & next time Im in Bali I will be doing this tour again because its simply that good!

My wife and I picked Bali on bike based on reviews and the fact that its is one of the few tours owned by a local family. We were not dissappointed with our choice. The guide will pick you up at your hotel and the day begins with a tour of the area. Stops include a coffee plantation and Mt. Batur. Afterwards you begin your bike tour. The equipment is very good, almost all new and in great shape. The tour is 95% downhill with minimal pedaling through local areas of Bali. On a side note* some of the roads are in fair/poor condition so navigating around some potholes is required. However most of the roads are very quiet, not congested and are in good shape. At the conclusion of the tour you end at Bob House (tour owner) where you are given a brief tour of a traditional family home, followed by a feast prepared by Bob's family. It was very intimate and terrific ending to a terrific day.

What fun, whooshing down hills, through rice fields and villages all the way to Bob's place for a fabulous meal and a lovely chat with his family. The most fun I've had exercising for ages!

Just got back from Bali and one of the highlights of our trip was spending a day with Bob and enjoying Ubud from a local point of view. My husband and I thought we were just going for a bike ride but got so much more than we thought. Started with getting picked up at our villa in Seminyak and taken to the coffee plantation where we had plenty of time to enjoy the breakfast and coffee supplied and chat to the beautiful people there. Then we went to the volcano before starting on the bike trip, which was just spectacular. We had a few stops along the way at points of interest and Bob explained all the local history and answered any questions we had. At the end of the ride we enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Bob's house with authentic Balinese food before being driven back to our villa in Seminyak. This was one of the best days we had in Bali and certainly one of the best value for money. Wish you every success in the future Bob and thank you so much for the great day!
