Back roads type tour. Got to see non tourist Bali. Cooking your own Balinese lunch (with help) was informative and delicious.
My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much, our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. It was nice to see Bali from a different perspective. The food lesson / buffet was amazing it was great to see authentic Balinese cooking and the hosts made us feel very welcome. The food was lovely. We would recommend this trip to anyone from young and old as its not strenuous work as it was mostly down hill :O)
Excellent tour. Picked up from hotel, about hour and a half on bikes mostly down hill followed by lunch/cooking demonstration which was amazing on the families own rice paddy. Host and his family were lovely. True authentic bali experience
The best thing I did in Bali. Great ride. The bikes and helmets were in good condition and clean. Apart from the bumpy first few kilometers the ride was comfortable. It brained abit but that added to the fun. The pace was good, a few fast sprint sections but slow enough to stop for photos and chats with the locals. The final stop with the cooking demonstration was great. Really interesting to watch the cooking and to take part in this. The food tasted great. The tour leaders were very obliging and dropped me off back in town. Highly recommended. N
this a great tour you are going to a lot off small village s and you see a lot off bali
in its normal life very great the cycling was easy to do and at the end we hat a cooking class

a great place and the epople were very nice we hat a great day and a very nice dinner whit a real indonesisch diner at the end
The tour is good, riding a bicycle in the village is fun and the cooking class after the ride is also great.
We really enjoyed this cycling tour. It is easy cycling, and except at the beginning and end, it is all down hill. Bikes were great, easy to use gears, and good breaks. There are stops to be told about the surroundings, and also for a morning tea snack. You finish with a cooking lesson and lunch.
Cycling tour was great. Highly recommended. Just get the hotel staff to call the tour company as I had trouble dialing locally ( I was probably dialling wrong codes). The tour guide was really good.
A fantastic trip during which you get to see the 'real' Bali. I would definitely recommend this trip as it is one of the best trips I have ever done.
Tour guide was very professional and considerate, possibly could have supplied additional water, maybe riders could have a bottle attached to bicycle so they can gain access when required
Guide provided great information about Bali/Indonesia on the bus ride there. Downhill track for the most part a couple steep inclines. The track is bumpy at the beginning but gets better. Great tea tasting stop on the way there. Also very nice Balinese cooking and lunch stop! I was the only person on the tour and it still ran. Tour ended early approx. an hour short probably because I was the only one there.
One thing that has been consistent with all four Viator trips that we have participated in, are their excellent group leaders. This trip was no exception. Wi was informative, patient and extremely knowledgeable throughout the the ride and during the cooking demonstration. Great cultural tour.
The only reason I gave this a 4-star rating is the day I took this tour it rained so I was only able to cycle for about a kilometer. The lunch was fantastic and helping to prepare it was a lot of fun!
We were surprised to find out that we were the only ones on this tour which was brilliant. Our local guide, Darta, was really fabulous and willing to answer our many questions and was able to speak English well. He provided us with heaps of knowledge about the Balinese culture on our way to the cycling starting point. The mountain bikes were in reasonable condition and the roads were "interesting" providing us with a bit of an obstacle course at times which was a great challenge. It was very rewarding to be away from the hustle and bustle. The cycling through rice paddies and many villages was absolutely fabulous. In total we rode about 15km but it was mostly all a gentle down hill ride. We finished up at this lovely place where we learned about the Balinese cuisine including demonstrations and we also participated in the preparation of the food. We finished off with a lovely lunch consisting of the food we helped prepare.
We would certainly recommend this tour to anyone!!!
This is a really nice tour and a good way to get out and about and see some more of Bali. The cycling is on bikes which may have seen better days but they were well maintained with good brakes. The cycling was a little bit start and stop as the guide would point a lot of things out. It would have been nice to be on a route with more riding, I think we rode for a hour and a half. At the place we stopped, we were given drinks and local snacks which was nice. We then went to watch a cooking demonstration of the local foods and were able to have a go, which was fun! Our lunch consisted of the things we had made which was nice! After lunch we were taken to a plantation onin the bus, where we saw coffee being produced and then were given 7 or 8 different coffees and teas to try which was interesting! Then it was the end of the tour. It is worth doing but if you want a cycling tour, this maybe isn't the one for you. If you want a tour with cycling, cooking, seeing lots of sights etc, this is great!
Excellent bike tour through the real Bali, where people work their farms in order to survive. After a 1.5 hour mini van trip through Bali, the 2 hour bike ride commenced, down a gentle sloping gradient. During the whole ride, I think I peddled 5 times, and that was only after I stopped. There was a bit of a hill to peddle up, but this was not a drama. We were given an authentic Bali lunch, where all the herbs and spices were ground up fresh and mixed with the meats. A Great experience. Our tour guide seemed a little uncomfortable at first, but soon warmed to us. After lunch, we boarded the mini van, and headed to a jewellery warehousefactory that specialised in hand made silver jewellery decorations. We then reboarded the min van and experienced different sights of Bali for approx 1.5 hours ride back to our accommodation.over all well worth seeing and experiencing.
