We booked this the night before and it was one of the best things we did. Bob was fantastic, always giving us lots of information and answering any of our questions. Seriously consider doing this day trip!

Awesome cycling through rice paddies and visit to coffee plantation. Guides give good explanations about everything. Lunch at the house of the guide was excellent. Great value for money.

I think just about all bike ride companies will give you a great day. One of the best things to do In Bali. Bali on bike (Bob) had friendly funny informed guys with very good English. The bikes were reasonable. Mt Batur view point not the best. I recommend a trip like this one that ends in the family compound, it really does add a lot to the day, so interesting. The lunch at the compound was great, heaps of healthy delicious Balinese home cooking. Finally this tour is noticeably cheaper than most.

There were 6 of us in our group and we were picked up promptly for an early morning drive to Ubud. Once there, Bob was the ultimate guide and offered to take my elderly Mum on the tandem bike with him for the first part which was a lovely gesture and well appreciated. Once past the uneven road bit (about 2 kms), she hoped onto her own bike and rode the rest of the way with the gentle encouragement of the staff. Both Bob and his support staff were fantastic and the lunch at his house at the end - Wow! For the rest of our stay in Bali I tried to get a repeat order of tempeh which his wife made but nothing ever came close to her recipe! The lunch was superb and location was beautiful. Well done Bob on such a good experience.

I know there are many other operators offering the same type of trip but the lunch at the end was better than almost all other meals we had while in Bali :)

We booked the tour because someone recommended it to us and it was totally worth it. Mostly down hill and just 2 or 3 small parts where it's going really steep up hill - you can push the bike up easily! The food was awesome, thanks to the wife and Bob himself, had an awesome day.

They pick you up at your hotel and first there's a stop where you have an amazing view over rice teraces. Then the driver takes you to a coffee plantation and gives a lot of information about the nature and all the different types of plants growing in Bali. You try different kinds of tea and coffee and there's a nice breakfast (rice rolls (like pancakes) filled with shredded coconut. You can get a cup of the famous Kopi Luwak for 50'000 RP (around 4 dollars). It's not that special though ;)
After the plantation you drive up for a short stop with a wonderful view of a vulcano and a lake next to it - stunning.
After that you get the bikes and drive for 2-3 hours. Very nice villages, temples, forests.. Then you get a AWESOME lunch at Bob's house with an introduction to the balinese homes.
Totally recommend this tour.
