What a fantastic day with so much to take in. Bob was a very nice man, who clearly puts a lot of thought into making the trip a most memorable experience. I hadn't been on a bike for many years and was a little nervous, but I needn't have worried as I felt really supported by Bob & his lovely crew. It was the most wonderful feeling riding through quiet Balinese villages and seeing life away from all the touristy areas. How beautiful the countryside is! Bob was only too happy to answer all of my questions about Balinese life and was a very good communicator. Lunch at Bob's Balinese family home was great - the food was superb and we were all made to feel very welcome. This was one of the best day trip's I have done in all of my travels - I will do it again the next time I visit Bali. I highly recommend fitting a day with Bali on Bike into your trip to Bali - your life will be richer for for having this experience.

This was the best holiday tour I have ever been on. It was perfectly organised and run, nothing was too much trouble. We started a tour with one guide and ended up at his family home for the best Bali food I have ever tasted, (cooked by his wife) and as much beer as we could want. They never stopped talking, which was great, and we got to see and experience the real Bali. Thankyou so much guys, It was a hoot. 10/10
I would do it again

My husband and I took this tour on our last day in Bali and it was definitely the best day of the whole trip. Our guide Moon shared much about Bali culture and Bob obviously took a lot of care in planning the ride. Over 35 km of gentle downhill riding, we wound our way along quiet country lanes to see the real Bali. The day started with breakfast and beverage sampling at a small farm that grows coffee, spices and tobacco. Anyone interested in Permaculture would get a kick out that part alone. The views along the way were breathtaking, and we even got to have a go at threshing rice with the lovely ladies out in a rice paddy we passed along the way. It ended at Moon and Bob's family compound where a sumptious home-cooked meal with unlimited Bintang awaited us. All in all exceeded our expectations and thoroughly recommended.

We booked with Bali On Bike on a recommendation from a workmate. I'm so glad it was recommended to me - what a really great way to spend the day. Our guide Bob was such a lovely man and we had no problems with understanding him and he was able to answer all the questions we had without any breakdown in communication. The visit to the coffee plantation was very interesting. We loved riding through the countryside and finding out about how life in a Bali village really is. The actual bike riding was not strenuous as most of the ride is downhill. I'm not a confident bike rider but felt very supported by Bob and the crew. We finished up by having lunch at Bobs house where we were made to feel very welcome and the food was delicious. Overall it was a really great experience and we can't recommend it highly enough.

My wife and I recently took this trip and could not have been happier. Our guide Moon was a wealth of information for pick up to drop off. Our driver stuck with us the whole time stopping traffic at busy crossings and shielding us on busy roads. Always felt very safe. The meal at owner Bobs house at the end was the best local food I had the whole trip and Bob was a pleasure to talk to. I strongly recommend this tour with this company. James
