Our guide & driver John was absolutely fantastic. He made our day really special, took amazing photos for us & made sure we had everything we needed. All the cycling guides were outstanding making sure we were safe amongst the traffic & scooters, teaching us about the history & culture of Bali. It was terrific to see the temple & village, stunning rice padi fields, countryside, beautiful scenery. We stopped for morning coffee where we were guided through plants & herbs, saw how coffee is roasted & ground using traditional methods & had a tea & coffee tasting. It was great to see Bali by bike, mostly downhill, with not too much effort involved & the beautiful & friendly Balinese people waving & shouting hello as we passed through their villages. There was plenty of food & bottled water provided. We highly recommend this tour, you won’t be disappointed.

The confirmation email contains a pick up time from your location and a general one, that of your hotel that is correct. You can communicate via whatsapp in Bali +62 878-6233-1333 You are in the car for about an hour (with air conditioning and bottle water) Then first a visit to one of the most beautiful rice terraces in Tegallalang where you can also swing, zipline etc. Then a visit to a coffee maker where you can taste everything and then you have a trip to the volcano where you will have breakfast. Around 13:00 starts the descent by MTB of about 20 km through a very beautiful bamboo forest, a village with a visit to a temple. After the ride (around 15:00) you get a free lunch. It's really worth it! I lost 45€ Puck up was at 8:30 am and I was back at 4:30 pm.

I was lucky enough to be the only person cycling that day so we went at my pace. I can cycle on normal roads but found some of the jungle paths and very narrow bits (with a large drop down) quite difficult at times. This was never an issue though, the guides were very understanding and allowed me to walk during those bits. The traditional village and temples that we visited are also very nice. I also visited a coffee plantation and had a chance to go on the big swing before the bike ride as well as a nice buffett lunch with amazing views over Mt Batur.

All in all was totally perfect. We did a nice trip around the area and visited a small village. And before the cycling hiked around the rice terraces. I can’t say anything was wrong. Totally recommend

I recommend to everyone! It was simple great! Especially the bike ride, the guide was on top
