Owner description: Cycle downhill through rural roads, plantations, fields, and rice terraces, inhale the fresh air, feel the unique spirit and feel the magic of rural Bali. This full service day trip includes pick up and drop off in most parts of Bali. It includes a buffet breakfast at The Lookout Restaurant in Kintamani, with an amazing view of Mt Batur and Lake Batur, as well as a brief stop at a coffee plantation to taste local coffee and spices. A splendid feast of Balinese food awaits you at the end of the tour (some guests say this is their best meal in Bali! The cycling sure builds up a healthy appetite).

The tour takes you (downhill) through a lot of small villages. Frequently a stop is being made to take a closer look at e.g. rise harvesting (you are invited to help the locals), a coffee plantation, a Balinese house, etc. The guide spoke English well and gave a lot of information. The interaction with the local people is remarkable: everybody is happy to see tourists, even if they don't have anything to sell. Definitely a recommendation. I booked directly, but was told that if you book via an intermediate party (taxi driver?) you can get a discount. I payed 420.000 IDR. Breakfast and lunch was included. The only physical thing about this bike tour are your hands: you need to brake nearly all the time.

We recently went cycling with Bali Eco and I have to say it was one of the best experiences we've had in Bali so far. We are a family of 4 and one of my twins is recovering from a broken knee. Bali Eco got us a tandem bike with a small foot hold for him and the guides assisted my son and made sure he was having a good time the entire day. My other 9 year old had his own kid's bike. I felt extremely safe with the guides navigating us through small villages and along beautiful rice paddies. This is a must-do with kids!

We highly recommended bali eco tours, they were fantastic. From pick up from our hotel in legian to the drop off, we could not fault a thing. And for $42 aud it was even better!! Our tour guide wayan was awesome, very knowledgable, great English and an all round awesome dude. When we were first told it was a 25km ride we all looked at each other, laughed and thought what the hell have we got ourselves into. At the end we said we could do it 10 times over, it was amazing.
The food was great, they were super accommodating.
Quick replies with bookings, un heard of in Australia!!
When we return to bali we will definitely be doing it again.
This side of bali is completely underestimated, we all walked away feeling happy and great full. Massive thumbs up

We did this tour on our first day in Bali, and it was incredible!
We were picked up early in the morning, at our hotel by our guide (who was amazing! very helpful, informative, friendly) and driver. We were in a group of 10, with people touring from literally all around the globe. The day started with breakfast overlooking Mount Batur. Next we went to a coffee/tea tasting, where we had the opportunity to try the world-famous Luwak coffee. And then finally around 10, we begun our down-hill ride! Along the way we stopped at a traditional Balinese house where we got to learn more about the culture; next at a paddy field where we got to watch the entire cultivation process, and even lend a helping hand! Our final rest stop was at a beautiful 500 year old banyan tree.
At the end of our ride we were driven to an amazing lunch with delicious Indonesian/Balinese food.
Luckily our day was not too hot, but the humidity was still pretty high! We were provided lots of water, and some fruit on our last break to keep us going.
The whole ride had a lot of opportunity for photos in some beautiful spots. The roads we took were pretty quiet and we felt quite safe.
Highly recommended, great value for money; definitely the highlight of our time in Ubud!

The Mt Batur volcano sunrise trek was the highlight of my Bali getaway - I also think it's one of the most underrated things to do in Bali. We were a group of 8 and we were accompanied by 3 guides, which was great as having more guides meant that they could cater to our different fitness levels. They were all very helpful in making sure we ascended and descended safely. Torches and water were provided. Chocolates were given to us during the climb, hot drinks while waiting for sunrise (a lifesaver, as it was rather cold at the summit), and a simple breakfast of eggs & bread with bananas after the sunrise. Needless to say, we were well fed!

Tip: The climb is a rocky one so it may not be easy for everyone (unlike what is advertised on the website). But this is a must if you enjoy outdoor activities!
