Booked the trip to do on our last day in Ubud and we were not disappointed. After a very uninspiring tour by car two days ago we now wish we hadn’t bothered and did this trip twice instead !
The communication with Nyoman was excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this trip to others.
You have what feels like a genuine experience cycling through local villages and rice fields. Stopping off at a local house to learn more about Balinese culture on the way.
The bikes were really good quality as were the helmets which we were provided.
Our guide for the day was Ogus who was awesome. A really warm, knowledgeable and funny man who made the day really special for the three of us.
About ninety percent of the journey is down hill and you really don’t need to be an athlete to do this.
If you are tempted go ahead and book it. Your only regret will not be doing it sooner.
Thanks Ogus and Nyoman for a great experience it’s one of our highlights.
We spent the most wonderful few hours with our fantastic guide Ogus Dogen. The trip far exceeded our expectations, highlights visiting the children's school and the very informative talk on the family structure in Balanese culture and how the family house is structured. The breakfast and lunch stops were great and overall just one of the best things we've done in Asia
We booked a private tour (for three) through the website the day before and I was worried it was too late notice but I got a quick response from the company to arrange our pick up from our villa in Seminyak. It’s a bit of a drive out to Ubud so it’s good to leave earlier. Our drive and guide were both fab. Our guide Agus was fantastic! His English was excellent and he took the time to explain interesting things about the places we visited and the culture. First stop at a coffee plantation was so interesting! After breakfast, we visited Mount Batur and started cycling. It really is a very easy ride! So enjoyable cycling through villages and rice fields. I think it gives you a feel for the place. We visited a Balinese family’s home and afternoon another gorgeous section of cycling, we ended with a delicious lunch. Everything was great, and I like how this company invests back into the community.
The biking trip was really one of the best things we did on our Bali journey. The two guides did absolutely there best to inform us about life in Bali. They answered all our questions in a personal way and we could stop anywhere during the trip to watch, take photos and ask questions.
The trip to the top of Batur was interesting so don’t say no to that.
A supergreat day that gave us a lot. Don’t miss️
Our driver Dewar and our guide Johnny were excellent. We tasted all the coffee samples including the Lewat coffee, met some teachers and children at the local school, had a very interesting explanation from Johny about local culture with tea and biscuits in a local compound, stopped at the volcanoes view point, chose our bicycles and began our downhill cycle. It was delightful to cycle through the villages and rice paddies with Johnny stopping of to explain different places of interest. All ended with a lovely lunch. Only one short uphill that we walked otherwise no physical exertion. Johny was excellent very safety conscious, extremely knowledgeable. A delightful young man. Dewar our transport also a super guy and we used his taxi for the remainder of our holiday and for an airport trip which he organized a friend to do.
